In this assignment, you will argue a pro or con position involving minorities, women, or LGBTQ individuals given an audience with opposing views. Presenting stereotypes of minorities/women/LGBTQ individuals affects viewers’ conceptions of different groups. How do such skewed views affect real-life interactions with members of minority groups? Is there a difference among such genres as comedies, dramas, police procedurals, children’s shows, cartoons, and reality shows, in how marginalized people are portrayed? Can you cite any examples from your own experiences? The media should be trusted to provide the means to change people’s perceptions of minorities. Argue for or against this statement.
Outline in three pages specifically the nature of the problem and demonstrate critical thinking, sound logic, valid claims, personal passion, and credible support that is cited correctly.
