Transcript of Racism in Media

Cognitive distortions are simply ways that our mind convinces us of something that isn't really true.

Cognitive bias refers to a systematic pattern of deviation from norm or rationality in judgment

Media is the main means of mass communication such as television, radio, newspapers, and the Internet.

Racism constitutes as the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

Media and Its Impact
Racism in an political aspect

Racism by location
• Media play a powerful role in the formation of prejudiced attitudes and beliefs. Numerous studies have shown that media contribute to the marginalization of particular ethnic and cultural groups. Media can also shape beliefs of entitlement for people in dominant groups
• Trump has used stereotypes as a shorthand method of defining characters in ways that are easy for people to identify and categorize.
• There are some people who actually think that crime is normal in Black and Hispanic cultures and is not a big deal. This stereotype adds to the misrepresentation and little to no coverage of minorities in the news.
• According to CNN Trump said "there were
people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey, where you have large Arab
population. They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down.”
• He was said to be racist towards Muslims was when
Humayun Khan a United States Army Captain died in 2004 in Iraq.

• Media presentation is often as important as societal influence in determining how a person feels about an issue.

• Human values are the principles, standards, convictions and beliefs that people adopt as their guidelines in daily activities. Principal human values are the foundation on which professional ethics are built.

TV shows and Cartoons
Racism by location
Stereotypes of Americans are ethnic generalizations and oversimplified images or ideas about American people, and are found in many societies worldwide.
Uneducated, ignorance, and gullibility
Americans may be stereotyped as ignorant of all countries and cultures beyond their own. This stereotype shows them as lacking intellectual curiosity, thus making them ignorant of other cultures, places, or anything outside of their own lives or the United States.

Criminal, Drug addict
Often the minority community is bashed as criminals although there are many times educated, responsible and drug free.
Donald trump has crossed the line as some might think with unnecessary Comments that were interpreted in an offensive way to society or social groups.
Trump’s political “genius” exposed: It’s just shameless racism
At a rally in Alabama last Friday, Donald Trump fired a racist fusillade at the African-American players in the NFL who have exercised their First Amendment rights to protest police brutality and social injustice in the United States.
Trump said “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired!" It is clear that he does not like "uppity" and "disrespectful" black people.
Trump is following a predictable pattern as to how racism often manifests in post-civil rights era America.
First, a prominent white person does something racist. Second, they deny that there was ever any racist "intent" to their words or deeds. Third, they claim that to accuse them of being racist is either unfair or just a surrender to "political correctness" -- this rhetorical move is especially true of white conservatives. Finally, they claim to be the "real victims" of "liberals," overly sensitive "minorities" or the "liberal media."
it is no coincidence that Donald Trump attacked the NFL and the NBA and then chose to praise the "patriotism" of NASCAR. The majority of players in the first two sports leagues are black. By comparison, NASCAR is a bastion of Southern whiteness where the Confederate flag, which could be more accurately described as the American swastika, is proudly displayed.
Twitter’s more than 300 million users vary, from members of the public to
celebrities, journalists, and politicians. The platform calls itself a “micro blogging
service,” where users can voice their thoughts and feelings in posts that are 140
characters or less. The social media platform tracks trending topics, trying to keep users
updated on current events. As a result, Twitter has become a source of breaking news and
societal reactions to present-day events. Due to Twitter’s immense popularity, the site can
have a huge impact, in multiple and profound ways.
The republican nominee and now president Donald J. Trump has a Twitter following of over 30 million followers (Trump, 2017). Through their Twitter accounts, politicians are able to connect with members of the public, other politicians, and perhaps most significantly,journalists. With such massive followings, politicians on Twitter have the huge potential to impact their public perception.
Politicians can influence their media coverage through
social media, Trump serves as a perfect case study considering his well-established and
well-publicized Twitter presence. Trump’s interactions with journalists, whether negative
or positive, could provide evidence of politicians directly influencing their own media
coverage through social media. Trump’s tweets, or the re-tweets of his followers, could
have even guided the press on what topics to cover. With this study, my goal is to
strengthen the research on the links between social media’s influence on politics and
journalism, and vice versa
When it comes to media and Trump, those two things go hand and hand, either they love him or hate. Donald Trump was a household name even before he became president. Hip hop Artists used to look up to him and write songs about him, but now they left him out to dry. Everything he does or say is criticize by the media and people who don’t like him.
although some people argue that trump is not a racist, some of the things that he says on twitter or in his speeches might be taken as a bit racist. Trump uses twitter as a plug for his racist comments, like on June 5, 2013 trump tweets “ The overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed”.
Politicians have used the
social media outlet to spread political propaganda and gain support from their followers,
including during peak moments of an election campaign. Aragon’s (2013) Barcelona
study of the 2011 Spanish national election found that Twitter activities for political
candidates closely followed important events during the election, such as debates and
Election Day
Media is a way for trump to say what he thinks is ok but others might think it is inappropriate for the President of the United States of America to even be saying.
