5 reasons why Save the Children Australia’s new ad is bad development

5 reasons why Save the Children Australia’s new ad is bad development | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it
Poverty porn leads to charity not activists. Narratives like this one, as mentioned above, do little to educate the public of the realities of the world they live in. It simply reiterates to the poor that they are helpless beneficiaries and it tells financially secure donors that they are the saviours. It also puts one face to poverty. Poverty does not have one face it is multifaceted and needs to be depicted this way. Poverty porn also makes a complex and grotesque situation, often a child about to die, seem easily fixed through a small donation, which I noted earlier shouldn’t be done. Communications like this make a human experience understandable and consumable as if you are watching a scene from a movie about an apocalyptic world far away.

The main reason why I feel poverty porn is ultimately never justifiable is that organisations are forced to become competitive. They must convince the public that they are dealing with the ‘most needy’ and ‘deserving poor’. And because of this, the communication is never about the subject but instead about attracting donors. Which I believe, directly works against aid and development’s long-term goals.

Blacks in Latin America, a brief history | African American Registry

Blacks in Latin America, a brief history | African American Registry | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it

On this date of Cinco de Mayo, we look briefly at the history of Africans in Latin (Central and South) America and the Caribbean.

In world history these two western regions were the first areas of the Americas to be populated by African immigrants. Yet wherever possible, they prepared and accepted reality with the African immigration to the Americas may have begun before European exploration of the area. African slave trading began before Columbus, and the earliest Spanish and Portuguese explorers. The most direct route from West Africa to the (then) New World was to what we now know as Brazil. Through the 15th and 16th centuries, slavery then moved up the coast of South America through the Caribbean. In fact today the largest population of African people outside of the African continent is in Brazil. The explorers were likewise accompanied by Black Africans who had been born and reared in Iberia. In the following four centuries millions of immigrants from Africa were brought to the New World in servitude.

Today, their descendants form significant ethnic minorities in several Latin American countries, and they are the dominant element in many of the Caribbean nations. Over the centuries, Black people have added their original contributions to the cultural mix of their respective societies and thus exerted a deep influence on all facets of life in Latin America. A strong African influence saturates music, dance, the arts, literature, speech forms, and religious practices in Latin America and the Caribbean. Africans, whether as slaves or free immigrants, brought a variety of African cultural influences to the New World. They came from so many places in Africa and were too scattered throughout the Americas to reestablish all the conditions of their homelands.

Why Are We Still Watching Poverty Porn? | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it
Every night, when we sit down in front of the television, the inevitable adverts pop up. That generic charity appeal that makes the room go silent, where a small, semi-naked, helpless child crawls across our television screens and the only thing we can do is awkwardly squirm or hope that our satellite box has enough minutes to fast forward.
