What do you think?  Is the media leading or following societal trends?

“Fresh off the boat” is a derogatory term used to indicate recent immigrants, why do you think Eddie Huang chose this title for his autobiography and the subsequent sitcom?

How does this show tie into this week’s readings that included a section on Asian media portrayals?

 

 

 

Part 3- How are different racial and ethnic groups represented in the media? (include entertainment, advertising, and news media) 

Are news stories covered or told differently based on the race and ethnicity of those involved?

What kinds of assumptions does the media make about certain races or ethnicities?
