Portrayal of African Americans in hollywood movies released from 2006-2013 /

Subject

Media Studies

Description

Racial stereotypes in American movies have mirrored our general public's predominant philosophies and have impacted our belief systems since the film business started. This study relates to the portrayal of how African Americans are projected in the certain movies from a particular time period from 2006-2013. Generalizations of blacks as lethargic, imbecilic, absurd, apprehensive, easygoing, reckless, infantile, rough, sub-human, and creature like, are widespread in today's general public. These debasing generalizations are fortified and upgraded by the negative depiction of blacks in the media.
