Race

April 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

Because this is a course that deals a lot with race, I wanted to share with the blog something that came up in my Com 318 class. We also went through a section learning about race and the professor showed a really funny but true video from Saturday Night Live. This sketch was on the topic of Jeremy Lin. It is know that Jeremy rose to basketball fame overnight and with that he earned a name, “Linsanity”  The sketch basically pointed out how the media will portray one race as something funny and okay but may be sensitive to other racial slurs. Take a look at the clip and you will see exactly what I mean, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIw3aF0O7Ww
