10/8 Discussion Question: The Whites of Their Eyes: Racist Ideologies and the Media

| No Comments

Stuart Hall's "The Whites of Their Eyes: Racist Ideologies and the Media" article brings up the familiar base-image of "slave." Hall states how a slave-figure can be dependable and loving in a simple, childlike way or can also be unreliable, unpredictable and undependable. Do you think films today still provide the familiar base-image of "slaves" today, or not? If so, are films portraying "slaves" as dependable and loving or unreliable and undependable more so in today's films? If not, in which ways have you seen producers shift gears within films when it comes to slavery? Is it a positive of negative shift?
