Summary
"Media & Minorities looks at the media's racist tendencies with an eye to identifying the "system-supportive" messages conveyed and offering challenges to them. The book covers all major media - including television, film, newspapers, radio, and magazines - and systematically analyzes their representation of the four largest minority groups in the United States: African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans. Entertainment media are compared and contrasted with news media, and special attention is devoted to coverage of social movements for racial justice and politicians of color."--Jacket
