Residing in a segregated society, white People study African People not via private relationships however via the photographs the media present them. The Black Picture within the White Thoughts gives probably the most complete have a look at the intricate racial patterns within the mass media and the way they form the ambivalent attitudes of Whites towards Blacks. Utilizing the media, and particularly tv, as barometers of race relations, Robert Entman and Andrew Rojecki discover however then transcend the remedy of African People on community and native information to incisively uncover the messages despatched about race by the leisure industry-from prime-time dramas and sitcoms to commercials and Hollywood motion pictures. Whereas the authors discover little or no within the media that deliberately promotes racism, they discover even much less that advances racial concord. They reveal as a substitute a delicate sample of photographs that, whereas making room for Blacks, implies a racial hierarchy with Whites on prime and promotes a way of distinction and battle. Commercials, for instance, function loads of Black characters. However in contrast to Whites, they hardly ever communicate to or contact each other. In prime time, the few Blacks who escape sitcom buffoonery hardly ever get pleasure from casual, pleasant contact with White colleaguesmaybe reinforcing social distance in actual life. Entman and Rojecki interweave such astute observations with candid interviews of White People that clarify how these photographs of racial distinction insinuate themselves into Whites' considering. Regardless of its disturbing readings of tv and movie, the guide's cogent analyses and proposed coverage pointers supply hope that America's highly effective mediated racial separation could be efficiently bridged. "Entman and Rojecki have a look at how tv information focuses on black poverty and crime out of proportion to the fabric actuality of black lives, how black 'specialists' are solely interviewed for 'black-themed' points and the way 'black politics' are distorted within the information, and conclude that, whereas there are extra photographs of African-People on tv now than there have been years in the past, these photographs usually do not mirror a dedication to 'racial comity' or community-building between the races. Completely researched and convincingly argued."—Publishers Weekly "Drawing on their very own analysis and that of a big selection of different students, Entman and Rojecki current a substantial amount of provocative knowledge displaying a basic tendency to devalue blacks or drive them into inventory classes."—Ben Yagoda, New Chief Winner of the Frank Luther Mott Award for greatest guide in Mass Communication and the Robert E. Lane Award for greatest guide in political psychology.

Raised up in The Inner City Projects Called FAIR FIELD COURT Located In The (HEART) City Of Richmond, Va by a single Black Woman who I call (MOM). How Hard Can That Be, I know you would probably guess that with ONE CHILD it wouldn't be so hard, BUT it wasn't, it was (MIGHTY HARD), To Raise A Young Boy
(ESPECIALLY ONE LIKE ME) to be a Grown Man a Father ? My Mother worked HARD you hear me. 2 jobs, one in the early morning and One in Late Evenings. I am being 1000000 with you when I say this, (NOT 100) most of the time when she left in the Morning for work, she never returned home until late evening, it was straight to the part time job from that Morning Job, just to provide for Herself and Me. You know some, Now that I am grown, or have grown up, I KNOW HOW HARD THAT WAS FOR HER. (THESE DAYS, THAT'S GOTTA BE EVEN HARDER, I WOULD BELIEVE. ) Some -things do change, but never MY MOM'S LOVE FOR ME. What did change was ME. I started growing up, became a father @ 20 (KINDA GOOD THOUGH RIGHT?), went through a lot of turmoil though, Dropped Out Of School. (TOOK MOM THROUGH HELL - YOU HERE ME!). and YES, I KNOW I DID... NOW. I end up GOING TO JAIL on her (MY MOM) a couple of times. Matter of Fact, to Keep it 1000000 That's all I did for small things though, like Driving. I end up having 4 more Kids, whom I love dearly, like any father would. NOW, My Mom works a part time job now (STILL ABOUT THAT MONEY) and she's Retired. BUT ONE THING, MOM don't only take care of HERSELF & Me now, BUT (MY KIDS) Her Grandkids. HEY, What can I say, SHE'S MY MOM. "Love you Mother".. and THANKS.. BUT Y'ALL STILL GOTTA REMEMBER, >>> (I AM A PRODUCT OF MY ENVIRONMENT) <<<
