How Did Racism Get to Be So Popular?

How Did Racism Get to Be So Popular? | Video Production | Scoop.it
And what are all these white people doing in this new era of racially conscious films?
Marvin Hernandez's insight:

This proves that racist films can be quite good, yet they always create controversy. Django Unchained, a Spaghetti Western by Quentin Tarantino, uses the racial term "nigger" several times in the movie, and it still was considered great. I've seen it, and it's one of my favorite films, even with all it's racism. Producers don't mean harm, they're just trying to make the film seem realistic.

Racism, Sexism, and the Media

Racism, Sexism, and the Media | Video Production | Scoop.it
Racial and ethnic inclusiveness has grown to be more important in the Untied States as its society has become increasingly diverse. Racism, Sexism, and the Media: The Rise of Class Communication in Multicultural America, Third Edition examines how people of color fit into the fabric of America and how the media tell them and others how they fit. Authors Clint C. Wilson, Félix Gutiérrez, and Lena M. Chao perceive the rise of class communication as a result of the convergence of new media technologies and continued demographic segmentation of audiences as people of color grow as targets of and markets for the media. Racism, Sexism, and the Media, Third Edition is recommended for undergraduate and graduate students of mass communication and social sciences, including journalism, broadcasting, film, and advertising.
Marvin Hernandez's insight:

Racism, Sexism, and the Media is a book that talks about the media's prejudice against all minorities and the labels they use. What surprised me is that this is the third edition, so there are two other editions that touch on the same topic. The book is pretty long, so I'll probably just use sections.

6 Disney Films That Are Undeniably Racist and Sexist

6 Disney Films That Are Undeniably Racist and Sexist | Video Production | Scoop.it
We all know that Disney relied on racist and sexist stereotypes in its early days. But how much has changed in Disney's 90 year career?
Marvin Hernandez's insight:

Yet again, animation proves that racism can be subtle. All 6 of these films were loved by people everywhere, and no one really thought anything of it.Put racism and sexism in a movie and no one bats an eye, but say a racist joke and everyone loses their minds.

YouTube ordered to take down anti-Muslim film

YouTube ordered to take down anti-Muslim film http://t.co/d0b9tELzlX
Marvin Hernandez's insight:
Some films can create a lot of controversy; this usually occurs when a film tries to talk about religion, or another country. Most Eastern countries usually have problems when others talk about their culture, and filmmakers have to be aware of this when filming.

Marvin Hernandez's insight:

This article talks about film and religion. Hollywood usually avoids films that talk about religion. Every once in a while there is a religious film, and it usually gets negative response. The Passion of the Christ is a prime example, as it talked about religion and got very negative response from people, as they thought Mel Gibson was trying to mock Christianity.

Sexism In Media: Not Just An 'Atmosphere'

Sexism In Media: Not Just An 'Atmosphere' | Video Production | Scoop.it
Politico’s kingpins swatted down charges of ‘overt sexism’ in the workplace—but many newsrooms are still full of it, says Sarah Blustain.
Marvin Hernandez's insight:

This woman has had several experiences where the media seems sexist. She provides several examples, but in my personal opinion, I feel she's overreacting. Just because someone calls you "honey" or "sweety" doesn't mean they're sexist. It means they're being courteous. Other examples do show sexism, but not everything can be considered full sexism.

Meryl Streep Vilifies Walt Disney as Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semite

Meryl Streep Vilifies Walt Disney as Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semite | Video Production | Scoop.it
Streep presented the best actress trophy to Emma Thompson, who plays Mary Poppins author P. L. Travers in Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks. Ms. Streep said Disney “had some racist proclivities” and “supported an anti-Semitic industry lobbying group and [was] a gender bigot.”
Marvin Hernandez's insight:

Racism and sexism was the usual back in the days. White males were usually seen as the superior, while women were just there for support and other ethnicities were thought to be dumb and poor. Walt Disney incorporated this into his work, but meant no harm. He was still an iconic symbol, even with all that.
