In a society where 27.8 percent of American men are obese, print and electronic media should focus on health issues instead of the mass selling of the “perfect body image” and American men should try alternative methods to
Blacks are more likely to watch sports because there is a large representation of them and they are shown in a positive, glamorous and respectful image. The professional athlete serves as a symbol of upward mobility and financial security, something these young males desire to have. The problems lies in the way of how the media depicts sports as an avenue for a professional career when in fact it is a long shot that one will ever achieve greatness on a professional level. Blacks who live in poverty are accustomed to watching a great deal of television and Bierman and others believe that blacks who are less educated begin to blur realism from fantasy and may not be savvy enough to make the distinction between the two. Those from a higher socioeconomic status tend to seek out reality in their teen years while those from lower socioeconomic status tend to stay fixated on their fantasies.
The distribution of rewards is unfair. Usually the men athletes are glorified and women athletes ignored in the mass media. Media images of modern women athletes tend to focus on feminine beauty and grace. The other area, technology, illustrates that men have a larger advantage too. Men create, program, and market.
Marketing Evolution of Sports Apparel Sports apparel can be defined as clothing that is suitable for athletic activities. Conventionally, athletic clothing was typically a male purchase. This is owed to the fact that the traditional culture did not expect women to take part in sporting activities. A woman’s place was at home taking care of the household.

Both men had different upbringings which drove them to succeed, one authoritarian and the other pride in oneself. Both of these men became involved in basketball through the military, which in and of itself is a coercive power and a legitimate power. So it is no wonder that both have powers in common.

Both coaches used these perspectives in different ways however.
After reading the whole script it seems that Rickey wants to do things his way for selfish reasons, to get fame and money while Robeson wants to do it for altruistic ones. This paper discusses about Rickey’s intention, why he chooses Jackie as his prey to gain fame and money. Paul trying to explain his point to Rickey on the fact that there are other brilliant players in the team but why Rickey only wants Jackie.

One of the faults is that if everyone is created equal then anyone would be able to get a job regardless of the color of their skin.
That also goes to show how things have changed from then to now. Now a days African American people do not have to watch what they say around white people. This seems like a form of social stratification because the white people are held to a higher social status than black people. That is why black people then had to have two faces when they are around their own race and white people. Another scene in the movie shows Cecil's son joining the civil rights activists group called Freedom Riders.
This leads to hegemony, where the powerful remain in control. In today society, female sports do not get the recognition that men sports do in that they do not make the same amount of money, the same amount of respect, and the same amount of television coverage. Gender discrimination root comes from the interest and desires of society. Female athletes are frequently looked upon as not being as entertaining or lacking athleticism compared to male athletes.
