"Mammy" = the indoor servant who cared for the children of her superior more than she cared for her own --> overpower Sambo to assert black inferiority
Black peoples appearing as creatures akin to apes or monkeys, in order to emphasize that they were savages

Racial stereotypes often used in comdies
Dr. Yurii Horton, Eric Brown, and Raagen Price of Stanford University: "media sets the tone of our morals, values, and beliefs" (Horton, Price, & Brown, 1999).
People learn about the world around them through visual media
Focusing on 13-17 year olds
Dr. L.P. Spear has shown that the mind is more malleable during adolescent years than it is during adulthood (Spears, 2000).
Minorities, such as African-Americans, have been depicted in news as criminals (Pornskulvanich, 2007; Entman, 2012; Rigoglioso, 2008; Lee, 2013; Ramasubramanian, 2010).
Suggest that these constant depictions of African-Americans potentially lead to negative interactions between police officers and African-American suspects.
Depictions in visual media help explain to viewers understand how the world around them functions (Glenn and Cunningham, n.d.; Coltrane and Messineo, 2000; Layden, n.d.; Robert and Lichter, n.d, and Deskins and McIntyre, 2013).
Interactions seen between two people in an image or an environment --> action in image produces positive reaction --> viewer most likely to mimic (observational learning) (Myers, 2007, p. 743)
