many different groups were represented in Stereotypes?
different types of groups in different fields of Stereotypes, These groups indicates their living standers and
their activities in life .So groups are racial, gender-based, or something like what a
person chooses to eat, everyone belongs to at least one group. Being part of a
group is not all that there is to a person. So in this case people can be judged based on
the fact that they are in a group. For example, Jeff thinks that vegetarians
all listen to sitar music and nothing else. But Eddie isn't even sure what a
sitar is! Let's look closer at how people judge others based on their group
affiliation through stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.
B).What groups were most represented? Why do you think this is
As we know that in
media the most representative group is Society. Stereotypes in media are
usually used to categorize specific groups of people into a general concept
that defines them as a single unit.We
also know thatcultural
aspects, accent or skin color may be the first clues to identify the origins
and background of that character. Stereotyped behavior builds up the definition
of an ethnicity in the mind of the audience. This hinders the audience from
searching for deeper human meaning, encouraging them to overlook meaningful.
Media helps increase the notion that Blacks or Latinos are different from the
rest of society, and the audience accepts that as a fact. The surprising and
fraught aspect in this arena is that most times a non-white man plays the
villain, the burglar, the assassin or the corrupt character. The minorities are
involved in most negative roles in TV and film productions. Thus, the value of
our culture is diminished and individuals related to or identified with this
group according to society are notable when they behave as bad guys,
the poor or the violent. These attributes in their characters and every
individual considered to represent that ethnicity.
differences, if any, were there in the roles that members of the various groups
played? Did one group play more sophisticated or more glamorous roles than others?
As we know that every work and task
can only be done by number of populations and groups in the Society. So there
are following example which can easily help us to understand that only one
group cannot handle or tackle the populations. For Example If a country has
reached the point of development where most deaths come not from infectious
diseases like tuberculosis, dysentery, cholera, malaria, flu, pneumonia but
from chronic diseases heart disease, diabetes, cancer, the economic and social
equality within the society is a greater determinant of death rates and average
lifespan than the country’s position with regard to others. So According to
given Statements These things warns to people’s sense of control over their
lives. People with a higher sense or stronger history of efficacy tend to live
longer, maintain better health, and participate more vigorously in civic life.
How many cases were people depicted
in stereotypical roles (e.g., African Americans as athletes or women as homemakers)?
As a society of stereotypes there are many roles offering in different countries
as a athletics, woman as home mark.
There are few numbers of scholars and social scientists functionalist the responsibilities
of both man and woman. These challenges have factors which are significant to
understanding family structures. The critical perspective digs deep into the
question of how gender roles vary amongst families of differing race and ethnic
groups, as well as those from different socioeconomic classes. Gender roles
established within African and American families .These perspectives depict the
family as an economic social unit, maintaining that the family in its entirety
provides a set of universal functions to society such as: regulation of sexual
behavior, socialization of children, care and emotional support, maintaining
the economic system, and conferring social status upon its members. These functionalists
continue to argue that in order to exercise these privileges. So these men and
women are expected to carry out their discrete instrumental and expressive
roles. It was customary for men to get married and uphold the position of the
primary breadwinner by means of providing physical resources such as food,
clothing and shelter for their families.
stereotypes were reinforced in the commercials?
As we know that in
commercially stereotypes reinforce gender as a media so with men it's a bit
different as it's more age based than beauty based. A male presenter will be
working in media until his careers ends. But you'll rarely see a female
presenter in her late 40's on TV as she's not "pretty enough". Or she
will have had surgery to make herself look younger. Women are more often
depicted as being smarter and more emotionally sensitive than Men. They are
depicted as being super-human able to hold down a career, head a family and
maintain physical perfection. This puts a lot of pressure on women to be high
achievers and can leave them feeling inadequate when they are unable to
maintain these standards. Men are depicted to be strong and simple, they are
shown to like sports, cars, beer, food and women.
.What do your findings suggest about the power
of the media and its effect on identity formation and intercultural
Mediahas a great role in intercultural communication it contain a power
of people and media workers to communicate with government and with people and
also keep pace with the development of society and county. they have created to
appeal to women who want to change the current gender roles. These underlying message is buy this product because you are
really more clever than he thinks he is This means then that gender is still a
major form of inequality. Moreover, there are plenty of those ads where
clever men are telling happy but incompetent women how to do the housework by
buying the latest scientific technological aide. The underlying persuasive
narrative is different. Nevertheless, both sets of adverts reinforce gender
