Some of his most acclaimed work has been from movies that were based on true stories. When Washington does these real life stories he finds characters that have over come many difficulties in their lives and end up winning. So by Washington starring in roles where he always ends up a winner he is creating an image in the viewers mind that he is a winner. When the audience leaves the movie they remember what great things Washington did to turn out the way he did. Many people have a hard time separating movies from the real world and some people assume the character is that person in real life Denzel Washington is the first African American male to win an Academy Award for the Best Male Actor category.
Anyone who was positive in the movie they tried to hurt or they killed them off. Young minorities are faced with theses images everyday from music videos on down to television shows and I feel that it was an awful depiction of black culture. I do feel that the movie is detrimental and can taint a young urban minorities mind; it could lead young men and women to idolize criminal lifestyle. When Goldie refers to himself as a “hero” I could almost imagine what is going on in a young teenager’s mind. Their probably thinking the movie was great or they want to sell drugs, be a player or pimp just like him without seeing the truth.
Many addicts believe they are the cause of their own addictions and put all the blame on themselves. Maté disagrees with this argument because he believes in the science of the brain and how it works. The fact that some addicts believe that all of the childhood abuse and punishment is because of their actions is absurd. Maté describes these feelings that the addicts feel as “being cut off from their natural self-compassion” (275). The drug addicts lose all respect for themselves and these addictions end up taking over their lives.
For example, when Ali and her sister Lela went to school the kids would taunt and called them names, and say things like “Where’s your oilcan?”, and “Are you a terrorist?”Which was very hurtful to them because they didn’t do anything wrong because of their last name they were guilty by association. In addition to being stereotyped, another negative effect of racism was being ridiculed in the media. For instance, the media would show men with guns aiming at the planes in the sky. The media did not make it no better showing the negative on television scaring people into thinking that they could be attack at any moment. When Ali went back to work there would be faxes of camels, SCUD missiles, and dead Arabs.
This ad is completely demoralizing towards women. It portrays this woman as just a sex object to the consumer, which supports Jean Kilbourne’s ideas of dehumanizing women. This is a horrible ad to publish because normal women are going to see this ad and think that they have to behave and act like that because that’s when men want. The Tom Ford brand may have gotten attention with this tactic, but he also alienated a lot of the public who thought the ads were
Television: A Distortion of Reality Television has become a false reality for millions of Americans and the majority of the global society. “The use of television to promote primarily materialistic values has become a severe, although largely unacknowledged, mental health and public health problem for the United States and the world” (Elgin 105). Duane Elgin speaks about the impact of television on the youth of our nation and how it is “being used to promote mindless consumerism around the planet” (Elgin 104). The negative effects of television are clear, and the reality is that this communication device is changing the important values of the global youth. The lucid shift in values has been from developing a meaningful philosophy in life to being well-off financially.
Others join armed groups out of desperation. Child Soldiers are not morally responsible for the acts they commit during wars because they are drugged up, are given no choice, and brainwashed. First, child soldiers are so drugged up on weed and cocaine that they have no real understanding of what they are really doing. According to Institute for War and Peace Reporting, “Child soldiers are drugged by militia leaders. They become violent and addicted...” The fact that children under the age of 20 are being forced to take hard core
Some have let prostitutes go in exchange for sex. But they are the first to arrest you or give you a ticket for breaking the law or getting caught with a prostitute. Some think because they wear a badge they can get special treatment or discounts at stores Allot of police officers don't deserve a badge and people are afraid to complain against them for fear of their lives and the lives of their families. People abuse their power, teachers, preachers, and firefighters. What is wrong with these
As of today, religious discrimination has increased over the years especially towards the Muslims who usually get harassed at work due to the way they dress and also disrupt their job opportunities. Some also despise uslims because they believe the religion is violent in relation to the notorious Al-Qaida led by the assassinated religious extremist, Osama Bin Laden. The legacy of this notorious group has affected innocent American Muslims and the way they are seen in the society. In some communities, it is rare to find a mosque which should not be so. We are all one, and have no right whatsoever to inflict judgment on a fellow man because of their religion or what they believe
Another stereotype would be that cheerleading isn’t a “real” sport. Of course all of these aren’t exactly true; they have stuck to cheerleaders as the years go by. Society displays these stereotypes everywhere, including movies, television shows, commercials, and music. Children are growing up with the ideas that all cheerleaders and jocks are uneducated people. Although stereotypes can provide humor and sarcasm, people should not follow and believe everything they hear about cheerleaders.
