This means that on average, there were nearly 267 mass shootings annually, or approximately 5 per week. While these shootings have been occurring, it seems as though these policies have remained the same throughout recent history or have become laxer, while the current administration has poked fun at “shithole countries” who have not had nearly as many incidents as these. How can a nation that spends so much on defense, not want to defend its own citizens from these atrocities (even though they certainly can)? Many may reason that this country’s lack of effective policies may be due to a widespread ignorance about mass shootings, a lack of interest in regulating a very profitable market, and this nation’s
Since their migration to the United States, Asian Americans have dealt with discrimination and praise from being a ‘model minority’. The model minority, although it is subjective, defines a minority group in America that are able achieve socio-economic success higher than the average. It highlights the American Dream, a notion that any American resident can obtain financial and social success despite race, background, or gender. However, the model minority is also inaccurate and does not represent the many multicultural ethnic groups that compose the Asian American identity. Furthermore, it fails to acknowledge the racial microaggressions and under representation in healthcare, leadership positions, etc of Asian Americans in their daily lives.
Conversely, Koreans, Filipinos, and Asian Indians who are christian or not traditionally Confucian, respectively, have the highest rates for college degree attainment.

A study by Jennifer L. Berdahl and MIn JI-A reveals that most workers prefer non dominant East Asian or a dominant or a nondominant White coworker over a dominant EAst Asian coworker. Out of East Asians, those who are more dominant or warm are racially harassed more and all types of coworkers( Berdahl, Ji-A).

Among all the respondents, more than two third (72%) preferred western film rather than those of HK or other countries. In addition, little interviewees liked to watch Hong Kong films nowadays (14%) compared to the old one (86%.) All this figures tended to appear that “Hong Kong Movies” is declining. To analysis the reason, one half of them thought “Hong Kong Movies” nowadays is lacking of creativities followed by “lack of famous actors” (29%.) What is more, since almost all the respondents valued more on the genre of movies which may be a decisive factor for them to choose whether to watch a film or not, three quarters of all did not think the genre of it nowadays cater to their preference.
As of recently, many remakes of old movies and sequels have lacked the rich content that movies need to succeed. Many movies that performed well at the box office decades ago are getting a sequel. Somehow, these movies do not live up to the expectations
The largest contributor to the problems plaguing the Eastman Kodak Company is its failure to predict, innovate, and establish market share in the imaging industry’s change to the digital sector. The success experienced by Kodak in the last 100 years was a direct result of their ability to adopt disruptive technology with regards to film sales and development to stay one step ahead of its competitors.

Considered as the fastest racial group in the United States, the media roles of Asian Americans are often invisible and are limited to playing old and tiring stereotypes. Landing a part in the media is extremely hard for minorities; especially for Asian Americans. According to the Pew Research Center, Asians constitute approximately 6 percent of the total population of the United States, but Asian Americans only portrayed 3.8 percent of all TV and theatrical roles. This also applies to the two other underrepresented racial groups with Latinos coming at 6.4 percent and African Americans at 13.3 percent. To no surprise, Caucasians represent 72.5 percent of all roles in the big screen.

At the start of the 1700’s Hollywood cinema had hit an all-time low, being roughly around $100 million in negative release, more than it had ever been before, with unemployment at a rate of 43.5%. To counteract these issues, Hollywood tried to mass produce low budget films to bring in more of an audience.

Many wanted films with realistic material reflecting the cynicism of the time, and others wanted pure entertainment.
