Usually, they are first impressions; and may be offensive. The most common stereotypes are those that include the word ‘always’ or ‘never’. The statements with such words are definitely not true. Among all the stereotypes that have been made, there are many about the Middle East. Indeed, I believe that the 9/11 incidents led the media to get the idea of using Arabs as the villains.
The story begins with a song that immediately establishes a very specific description of Arabia. The lyrics are “Oh I come from a land a faraway place/Where ... ... middle of paper ... ...d once again of how images of minorities (specifically Spanish and Native Americans) in America have been reduced and simplified to such an inferior ranking. Since the moment that Americans claimed this land, our popular culture has continued to fuel this ranking by producing shows like Devious Maids. Many forms of media fail to eradicate dangerous stereotypes that are keeping racism and discrimination alive. However, there are also forms of media that bring attention to dangerous stereotypes that have indoctrinated society for centuries.
Many see propaganda as undermining reason. Propaganda works with the emotions to get a mass to do a certain action. Since propaganda tries to remain hidden, are there any in the world who see it and try to uncover such propaganda? Satirical television and radio shows as well as newspapers challenge the conceptions of which we take for granted and of which are propaganda. How does satire function in relation to propaganda?
I have dealt with many stereotypes that make me feel down or hurt, however I got over that by not caring of what others may think, the only thing that matters is how you react to those stereotypes. In conclusion media does have an action in promoting stereotypes by creating misassumptions they have on a certain race without knowing their ethnic religion or group that well. People will believe it from thinking that all things on TV or news are all true and should be listen to. Media that influence these stereotype are so bad that it makes people think that it is true and feel that they know everything about another race without knowing the real truth, but by contradictory thoughts whether it is true or not.
There are counter-hegemonic ideologies among oppressed groups such as ethnic minorities that the public are exposed to. With repeated exposure, racism seems “normal” to those who engage in such disclosure. To analyse racism in the media, we must first operationalise the concepts and determine what racism is. Racism is a social system of ethnic and racial inequalities. In the media, various levels of discourse may be involved in the emphasis of negative beliefs about immigrants and minorities and thus contributes to the ideologies of racism.
Accordingly, when Bedouins, particularly the Awlad Ali tribe, visit Cairo and other cities, they describe Egyptians as inhospitable and unhelpful people*. While I was initially shocked by their statements, I came to realize that “hospitality” is such a relative term, for in the presence of racial discrimination, how on earth were these Bedouins going to see the hospitable side of Egyptians! Furthermore, such an outwardly biased system will no doubt advocate the formation of stereotypes towards “inferior” groups, and it will help create a correlation between stereotyped traits and life chances.
For the open-minded, continued exist of propaganda was limited the freedom and globalized society. It is forces us to think and work things in their ways. It cover the medium of our see the world by distort the truth. Propaganda is also one of the methods used in psychological warfare, which may also involve false flag operations. In wars, propaganda used to create anger like racism and derogatory to make enemy agitation.
The Essential Role Of Stereotype In Propaganda People encounter propaganda and stereotypes in their daily lifestyle from social interaction with peers to family and the media. Propaganda and stereotype are correlative; however their conceptual fundaments are different. Propaganda is a systematic manipulation of public opinion that is consciously disseminated to promote a doctrine or cause. Contemporary propaganda deliberately attempts to alter peoples’ opinion and influence human behaviour through common broadcasters such as “politicians, advertisers, journalists, and radio personalities” (Delwiche 2002). Stereotype is defined as “a conventional, formulaic and over simplified conception, opinion or image” (Dictionary.com 2004).
Throughout this paper, a demonstration of the negative stereotypes on public opinion will be presented along with important methods in which stereotypes work in propaganda. The conclusion of this research paper will be highlighted through presenting credible research results and actual examples demonstrating the different stereotypes of today’s youth. At the end of this paper, it should be transparent that stereotypes are the brainchild of media through propaganda that uses its tactics and techniques to corrupt the public minds. Prior to focusing on my example of youths’ stereotypes, it is a must to explain what propaganda is and how stereotypes have come to be a successful function of propaganda. Many people associate propaganda with advertisement, with television and radio ads.
