Hi, guys. Sorry that this post is late; I gave the new dog a bath when I got home--and then spent the rest of the night cleaning up the bathroom. LOL
Anyway, this week's blog post focuses on the scene in Chapter 1 of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye, where Claudia's hatred of Shirley Temple and the white baby dolls is transferred onto white girls, as a result of her anger over the injustice of being denied the same attention and reverence merely because of the color of her skin. I'd like you to think of similar instances of racial inequality in the media and the economy; in your comment, give an example of how certain racial/ethnic groups are underrepresentated in TV shows/movies or in stores. What kind of message does this send, both to members of that particular race/ethnicity and to others?
Your response will count as a homework assignment for the second marking period.
Have a happy--and safe--Halloween tomorrow!! :-)
