Do terror attacks in the Western world get more attention than others?

Do terror attacks in the Western world get more attention than others? | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
Reports of bombings tend to get huge numbers of mentions on social media, but that doesn't always mean a similar level of news coverage.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

The short answer is obviously "Yes."  Yet, this question brings up other questions about cultural empathy and how 'connected' we might feel to people of other places than our own global neighborhood.  This political cartoon-ish map

has more truth in it than we might like to admit; it is subtitled 'How terrible it is the the Western world when a tragedy happens in...?'

 

Questions to Ponder: Does the 'where' influence if we perceive the event as a true tragedy or not (or maybe just the magnitude or importance of the tradegy)?  How come?  What does this say about us as inidividuals, society, and the media?  How can we teach our students in a way to foster more cultural empathy?

 

Tagssocial mediaplaceculture, political, terrorism, media.

to me it is mind boggling how we can pay more attention to countries with national threats than others especially with ISIS being so prominent which is a war that is going to take help from not only the united states but the other affected countries

It somewhat bothers me how that terrorist attacks outside of Europe and North America is pretty much just ignored by the social media while people are sitting in the hospital for crimes in which terrorists and other religious radicalists have done to their area and country.-L.S.

For the question "Do terror attacks in the Western world get more attention than others?" In my opinion the answer would be yes because a lot of the terror attacks in the Western world are bigger and are expected more than terror attacks near  us. ~BH

Race Forward: Moving the Race Conversation Forward

Race Forward: Moving the Race Conversation Forward | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it


“We looked at nearly 1,200 articles and transcripts from the highest circulation newspapers and cable TV outlets across the country to better understand the portrait that mainstream media paints of contemporary racism,” said Race Forward research director Dominique Apollon. “The majority of coverage gives readers the impression that racism is simply a personal failing, or even worse, that racism is no longer a problem at all."


The seven harmful racial discourse practices include:

  • Individualizing Racism
  • Falsely Equating Incomparable Acts
  • Diverting From Race
  • Portraying Government as Overreaching
  • Prioritizing (Policy) Intent over Impact
  • Condemning Through Coded Language
  • Silencing History
     

Our Multimedia Producer Jay Smooth created a video to kick off the analysis, and to help recognize these harmful practices. We hope you'll watch, share, and discuss the report and video!



Sincerely, 


Rinku Sen
President and Executive Director, Race Forward

Women are often worried about how they look and that's not superficial. We know that our appearance has nothing to do with how smart, creative, or hardworking we are, but it plays powerfully into what society decides we are worth.

You know how they say that if it bleeds it leads? It turns out that’s not true. If it bleeds white, it leads. You need to share this, for journalism.
