I believe that the media is doing an okay job to include other races and cultures into their programming now but I still think that it is not enough. They say and show two different things. Minorities being under portrayed or shown a lot less than white actors are and this has a huge impact on how we live and view our life. White people are shown to always be successful business people, etc. where a non-white actor is rarely ever shown like this. I think that is totally unfair and gives out the message that they are not good enough. This world is still filled with so much racism and it is beyond horrible. I learned so much about this as well from the essay that I just wrote. Racial stereotyping also exists and most disturbingly in children’s movies and television shows at that. The media does not represent both white and no white actors fairly still although it is a lot more now than it used to be.
