Ethnoracial Group Portrayals Portrayals are patterned to present particular characterizations over and over. These can be considered “controlling images” in media, social media, and video games. These portrayals then represent members of that group either in flawed or super-human ways. These are both messages about what groups and individual members of these groups are like. Under-representation is also an issue. Portrayals of a group of people also portray masculine and feminine expectations of that group.

Arab American Stereotypes “Evelyn Asultany (2008) points out that in the aftermath of September 11, some television shows took up the question of whether it was fair to discriminate against Arab or Muslim Americans in the name of national security. Asultany contends that this representation leads to the conclusion that Americans have to choose between protecting the nation and discriminating against Arabs and Arab Americans (who are, according to the subtext, prone to being dangerous).” (p 103)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
