The Arian Brotherhood believes whites should be above all of races and or ethnicities. The Arian Brotherhood is still posing threats against other various races and is a great example of racial discrimination still existing in America Today. Another form of discrimination provided by the Caucasian race is racial profiling, racial profiling is a term used to describe when police or other various law enforcement officials single out a person or group of people as “potential suspects” based on their race or ethnicity. Racial profiling continues to be a prevalent form of discrimination in the United States today. Said by Aclu, “Since September 11, 2001, new forms of racial profiling have affected a growing number of people of color in the U.S., including members of Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities.” For example, if an African American man standing on a corner waiting for a bus he is more likely stopped and questioned why he is standing there and where he is going.
Critical Review on “The Assasination of Malcolm X” based on three articles As we all know, the most powerful creator of rhetorical issue is the media. The media played a large and important role in consistently creating a negative public image of Malcolm X which is still connected with him. The reality created by the media is powerful enough to create lasting images and stereotypes about people. These images may be true in some cases, but when incorrect, form an issue that demand a correction. The media has the ability to set the agenda, what people think and think about.
Opening: I believe that Media promotes racial stereotypes. Stereotype means a simplified or standardized conception and/or image of a particular group. There are several stereotypes perpetuated by different media outlets that highly influence the way that the every day person thinks or feels about particular groups of people.

These images are what shape our beliefs, determine what we consider is good or bad and who we associate with goodness or badness. Schaefer (2008) states the media plays a crucial role in shaping people’s perceptions by transmitting messages that create false images or stereotypes of groups of people that become accepted as reality (pg. 167). Race discrimination, through stereotyping, provides the foundation to limit employment opportunities which contributes to the plight of poverty. In essence the media’s attempt to highlight so called newsworthy issues, dominated by black figures engaged in criminal activity or drug abuse, allows for continued discrimination and development of additional negative
Bias is an opinion about whether a person, group, etc, it`s always subjective. The situation we have today with mass media is that all the news are biased instead of being objective. Media bias is the bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered.

In terms of the general public, the media is most commonly understood or perceived as merely a means of entertainment. However it is much more than that, it is a source of displaying human expression, art, imagination, creativity, and intellect. The founders who create, advertise, and distribute their works to the mass public all over the world regularly incorporate certain and various types of messages or signs in their creations that reflects their creativity and imagination.

African Americans and the Media Today the media portrays African American males as hoodlums and thugs. The racism present in today’s media needs to be addressed and dealt with. African Americans suffer from institutional racism, are misrepresented in the news, and their portrayals on television are based on negative stereotypes that do not accurately portray reality. If there is not a major change in the media’s policy toward African Americans then this negative stereotype will continue to dominate popular opinion and eventually become an uncontested fact. “Television, or specifically media, is not merely a reflection of reality, it is a mechanism for the creation of reality.” (1) History has proven that the ruling classes in any society
We see the group to which we belong (the in-group) as being different from the others (the out-group), and members of the same group as being more similar than they are. Social categorization is one explanation for prejudice attitudes which leads to in-groups and
