Transcript of T.O.K: Racism
-Merriam-Webster Dictionary There are several questions that we may ask after viewing these pictures, and also several conclusions of which we may also infer. Today we will analyze the following question: Why are the majority of the females displayed all of a lighter completion, and generally Caucasian? The most obvious reason for this similarity is that at this time in society today, it is more more socially praised for a women to have lighter skin completions; and (at least on google images) to be of the Caucasian race. One conclusion that people often choose to ignore, or not discuss, is how an individual views themselves. The underlying statement in question is this: Unless these photos were posted by someone other than themselves; why were there more people, of Caucasian decent who were satisfied in posting (generally nude) pictures of themselves on the internet whereas (at least under this search) there are considerably less of other races? Although similar to the results of which were present under the search of "Beautiful Women"; after searching for 'Handsome Men", the majority of the results consisted of light-skinned Caucasian and middle eastern males. The pictures you will will be shown have been cropped and re-sized from their original state and are the result of the top 20 handsome/beautiful men/women on google images; after searching "Beautiful Women" and "Handsome Men". Keep in mind that because these pictures are cropped, you will only be viewing head-shots, but that almost all of these pictures display an individual that is almost considerably nude. Websites Pictures During my quest of searching for Images, a certain site caught my eye. After viewing the pop-up on the picture of a Saudi Arabian named Omar Borkan Al Gala; i found that he is (or was) part of a hoax, under the general idea that he and two other men were kicked out of Saudi Arabia, on the grounds of them being "too handsome". http://skydancingblog.com/tag/omar-borkan-al-gala/ The true story of what had actually occurred is this: Omar had attended a Saudi Festival and because they deemed his style of dancing indecent, members of the National Guard took him aside, spoke with him, and that was it. Really this hoax only shows the level of ignorance that people are in possession of. The inhabitants of Saudi Arabia may have known right away that this was a hoax, but what about the rest of the world? http://ciipix.7digito.com/handsomemen.html Websites like these may be utilizing common comedy, but in the wrong sense. Post's like these are very detrimental to society for two main reasons. Not only do they falsely inform the ignorant but they also desensitize society. How would the person pictured feel seeing this? Do you care? If you are laughing, and it is supposedly funny... is it really a bad thing or is this now part of your own pleasure in which only your feelings are taken into consideration? Yes racism does still have an effect; even if it does not have a major influence on you in your life, it has a major impact on the lives of others, even in our society today.
