Description:

The paper discusses how racial profiling can affect the way people expect that person to act, the way his or her actions are taken by others, and the way that person sees him or herself portrayed. The paper further examines how the media is responsible for disseminating racial stereotypes, and how the media and entertainment can also help to combat racial stereotyping by forcing people to look at caricatures of themselves to promote discussion. The paper analyzes how the film "Crash" is an example of this, exploring racism from all angles in such a blatant way that it could not help but spark discussion. The paper concludes that while racism may not be as blatant as it was before the Civil Rights Movement it still has a presence in today's society.
