Dating back to the 1800 's, blacks in entertainment have been portrayed very negatively for decades in the media. Blackface was a form of theatrical makeup used by actors to represent a black person. Stereotypes imbued in the characters who practiced blackface also popularized black culture, although in a negative manner however. This practice was very popular in the 1800 's and early 1900 's, contributing to the proliferation of the stereotypes that black people are subhuman. By the mid 1900 's, attitudes about race and racism were changing, which effectively ended the prevalent use of blackface and other negative black stereotypes portrayed in the media.
The whole point of media and seeing photos is to give off this fake sense of reality, to let society see what we want and allow them to see. “Most cameras in smart phones have built-in filters and a range of effects that can be used to enhance even the most embarrassing selfies” (Rox). Filters and editing have become more of a need that a want, people based their looks and angles from what they can alter to get the ‘perfect’ photo for the world to see. This is not healthy because the more alterations to the photo they see, will become a false sense of reality in the head, which can lead to health concerns for any person. According to Rox, people using social media sites also tend to cultivate a persona and even friends and a peer group.
Things like television shows and movies contribute to this; whether it be a hispanic man portrayed as being illegal, or an asian man portrayed as an owner of a laundromat. Therefore, it is our view the negative stereotypes of African Americans in movies and TV shows has a impact on how they view themselves and can adversely affect their holistic development. The bias towards African Americans, whether it may be conscious or unconscious, is real. Modern day media has a major role to play in this, since what we see can have effects on our lives. For many years now, the media has been lambasted for their representation of African Americans to the general public.
Introduction The 21century radio is a melting pot of different creeds and nationalities; however, the social norms that we are accustomed to have not always been widely accepted. The African-American community has been suppressed and barely heard throughout the radio airways in America. As early as the 1920s, African-Americans have been behind the scenes in popular music on radio. For many, the idea of change introduced into society gave way to inevitable backlash from others who didn’t agree with African-Americans having a voice on the radio. This continued into the late 70s, according to the (National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters [NABOB]); there were “30 African-American owned broadcast facilities in the United States.
Machiavelli understood such position will cause many human tolls both in the governor’s country and on the enemy’s side. But he justified wars, because they helped to achieve the goal to protect and improve the ruler’s position.

Athletes are role models and represent their team through their words but more importantly, their actions. Therefore, the actions made by an athlete should be taken more seriously. If a law is broken by a professional athlete, they should no longer be allowed the privilege of representing their team. Because these athletes are always under scrutiny, no measures should be taken to cover up any crimes committed. 3.
The inability to vote was exactly what led to the creation of the United States, and allowing another population to vote is undoubtedly a turning point in the country’s history. When looking at history in America, many would not be proud of the maltreatment this country has placed on the black man. But during the 50s and 60s, African Americans were on the path to being seen as truly equal to white citizens. The year 1954 brought the end to segregation, 1964 brought an end to discrimination, and 1965 brought a start to representation.

Discussion It’s upsetting that we live in a world that judges people because of their skin color. Even though, racial equality has improved a lot since the Civil Rights Movement, there is still a lot of judging people in the world. I do not think racial discrimination will ever go away but I do believe it will continue to get better and better as the years go on. Different races are slowly becoming involved in everything and getting treated the way they should. The world has come along way considering, “ The country has elected its first black president, and there are many influential African Americans across various industries, including television personalities, athletes, authors, and entertainers” (Hassan,
A trigger warning is often used at the beginning of a form of media to inform the audience of its content, particularly when the content may be found offensive. After looking at a handful of articles I would now define a trigger warning as attachments to media that provide a reader a heads up on certain material that may cause reactions due to graphic descriptions. The intended use of trigger warnings is to make the audience aware, particularly victims of various kinds of violence, of the upcoming content to avoid a reminder of their traumatic experience. The use of trigger warnings is favored by some and disliked by others. Arguments regarding trigger warnings suggest that these warnings protect the individual, but another viewpoint implies
