On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we discuss "Racism in the Media."
The media plays a critical role as a major institution in society. Primarily speaking, their goal is to provide the masses with definitions about who we are as a people while reinforcing our values and norms. They give us concrete examples of what happens to those who transgress these norms; and most importantly, they perpetuate certain ways of seeing the world and peoples within that world. This immeasurable amount of power to shape how we think is both a gift and most certainly a curse.
The media is arguably responsible for the negative image it portrays of people of color. Have you ever noticed how the media portrays a person of color convicted of a crime versus a white person? Well, we have and we're going to talk about it.

Events in our recent past has once again brought this ugly topic back to the headlines and studios of the mainstream media outlets. It seems everyone from the President of the United States to the person sleeping under a bridge is either a racist or a victim of racism. Every day somewhere (just about everywhere) we hear of gatherings of people screaming and committing criminal acts in protest of unfair justice and "slave-like" treatment.
Preachers, politicians, community organizers and more continue to use racism as a tool in their war chest to further advance their own existence.
This topic really has us all "In the Pickle Barrel"!

Racism has been an issue since the beginning of time or has it? Some say racism is an excuse, some say forgive yet, never forget. Some say, enough already and move on... Shouldn't all races be held accountable for slavery? And, shouldn't we all be accounable for racisms survival? One would think we've come so far still, we still have so far to go. Are we doing our due diligence to create change. We can not in one sense elect a biracial President and somehow decide 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue via Google is now considered "Nigger House" by the definition of nigger, it's ineffective and frankly niggerly. It's not what your called, it's what you answer too.
