Transcript of Stereotypes in Television

Stereotypes in Television How Stereotypes Negatively Affect People: Stereotypes are a "willful disregard of reality usually leading to... oversimplified generations, about the group against which the prejudice is directed."(Prejudice) Stereotypes negatively portrayed in television shows have a negative affect on the public. The shows purposes are meant to be funny and and a enjoyment for the public. A CEO Steve Stanford from Icebox.com, which produces shows like Mr.Wong a stereotypical asian man, has said " our intent is to entertain." -"but students of color and girls... (feel) as though they may be confirming stereotypes about themselves" (Stereotypes can lower exit exam scores,Roger Phillips) http://compasnewsnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/televisions-reviews-2011.gif Counter Argument What are Stereotypes and Where: "The archetype of the fat, foolish guy dates all the way back to the 1950s with "The Honeymooners," says psychotherapist and pop culture analyst Beth Bernstein."(Morning Edition NPR) History of Stereotypes: Argument: Stereotypes Are No Joke:

"You can't tell an Asian he made a mistake, he'll go out back and throw himself on a sword." The comedy, the biggest new hit of the TV season, has been pilloried for stereotypical, under-written minor characters. (Weinman, Jamie J) http://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Other_Studios/I/Icebox/Mr__Wong/index.html "During the '70s and '80s, says Bernstein, bigger black actresses usually played sassy maternal types, from the moms on "What's Happening!!" and "Good Times" to Nell Carter as the feisty housekeeper on "Gimme a Break."(Morning Edition NPR) http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2012/01/2-broke-girls-creator-his-shows-racial-stereotypes-im-gay/47288/ http://www.patentbarexamprep.com/popuppracticeexams.html Counter Argument " King responded to hostile critics by pointing out that "the big story about race on our show is that so many are represented." (Weinman, Jamie J.)
" Also asked "Can't you take a joke?"(Weinman, Jamie J.) The shows are able to have a broad variety of races. By Kerry Madden and Bridget Rittman-Tune
Pd.2 Rebuttal people may not want like to have that certain stereotype.
When asked if they can take a joke the response is then "Why can't you tell any good ones?" Stereotypes in television today "Several recent comedies have brought ethnic stereotyping back to TV to an extent not seen since the '80s."(Weinman, Jamie J) "And would networks give these people a venue if they didn't fit these stereotypes to a T? Of course not. But the problem is we rarely see portrayals besides these caricatures. It's about time TV diversified beyond macho goons and their pasta-making mamas."(All Things Considered NPR) The World Deserves Change Some actresses have been typecast because of certain stereotypes. One example is hispanic actresses "sexy outfits and Spanish-tinged catchphrases," (Weinman, Jamie J) Stereotypes typecast Citations: Phillip, Roger. "Stereotypes can Lower Exit Exam Scores."
