Matthew Desmond and Mustafa Emirbayer (2009:342) argue in the Du Bois Review that “racism is much broader than violence and epithets” and reveals itself in common, everyday microaggressions. In May 2010, a string of assaults on elderly citizens of Asian descent by black individuals transpired in the San Francisco Bay area (Shih 2010). CBS San Francisco ran a segment covering the attacks featuring an interview with a 21-year-old black man named Amanze Emenike, who had a criminal history of juvenile robbery and theft (CBS 2012). CBS uses Emenike’s history as a basis for theorizing the motives driving the black attackers in the May 2010 attacks. This news segment sheds light on troubling portrayals of black men and people of color in mass media as all being dangerous criminals, as well as the stereotypes fueling racism amongst minority groups.
In the 1500s, after Martin Luther broke off from the Catholic Church, more people wanted to create their own reformed church (Nolt 11). Some of these people, called the Anabaptists had created their own church that had to meet privately in order to escape persecution. Eventually this group of people would split off into Mennonites and Amish communities. To this day, the Amish have stayed humble in their spiritual lives, while outsiders still see them as ‘weird,’ since they do not fit in. The Amish people have a wide sense of spirituality, which is difficult to comprehend as an outsider; therefore, outsiders meaninglessly apply stereotypes to the Amish to try to understand their lifestyle.
Through its trite, and grating production, the cinematic buffoonery of Rachel Perkins’ 2010 adaption of Jimmy Chi’s Bran Nue Dae ineptly depicts an assortment of racial and religious stereotypes and sexual innuendos. The film is a feeble excuse for a 1960’s nostalgic Bollywood inspired musical. It shoots for light-hearted satire but ultimately proves staggeringly unavailing.
Puerto Ricans have long suffered racial stereotypes similar to those targeting Mexican Americans and African Americans. They often were referred to by the derogatory term “spic” and also have been viewed as a criminal a lot. For example, stereotypes of Puerto Ricans as criminals influence police actions in numerous Puerto Rican communities, which are often more closely patrolled than poor or affluent white areas.
Introduction: Examine different kinds of advertisements and the problem at hand with how they perpetuate stereotypes, such as; gender, race, and religion.
Gender stereotype, or the over-generalization about the characteristics of an entire group based on gender, is evident in any culture or community, no matter how much gender equality is promoted. Brought on by centuries of tradition, it had become a pre-established belief that women were inferior to men, in that the dominance of men was already considered to be a norm of society. Though women in the past were responsible for household chores and raising children, a new age called for new ideals and a need for change in the attitude towards women. In the Southside of Chicago in the mid 1950’s, the members of the Younger family act as a prime example in portraying the difficulties associated with going against conventional expectations. The two prominent female characters
Gender stereotypes will always exist, I believe at least. You will always have parents who want to dress their baby in the colors more traditionally associated with their sex. You will always see a baby girl wearing more pink and a boy in blue. There are occupations that I can't see genders totally adjusting. I do not think ladies will ever overwhelm male numbers of technician, or men as manicurists. Obviously, ladies ought to get equivalent pay and young boys shouldn't be advised not to cry since they must be 'a man'. In any case, tragically, a considerable measure of these customs will bear on for quite a while. However, the gender roles are more impacted in different countries as oppose to the one we live in.

“I’m not the Indian you had in mind” challenges the widely accepted image held by society of what an Indian should look, act, and essentially be like. The short video starts out with a man dressed in casual business attire carting out a life size statue of the stereotypical Indian. He takes the statue, dressed head to toe in what society expects an Indian to look like including a traditional headdress, tomahawk, long hair and clothing then places it next to a television. The man, along with a woman dressed in a blazer and pencil skirt and another man in what society would define as casual clothing, go on to tell the stories of what society believes true Indians are.
To what extent has the media shaped our perception of certain ethnic groups? Media has always played a vital role in the way that people shape their opinions on certain ethnic groups. If people are shown the same image of a specific ethnic group over and over again they will eventually begin to believe it.
