Chapter 13: Prejudice In The Media

To help us become more aware of the prejudice present in the media we consume, it helps to do a bit of observational analysis.

For this discussion, provide a short synopsis of a film or television show (you may focus on a single scene or entire movie or episode) that you think depicts prejudice. Then, discuss the elements of prejudice that you detect in that film or show to support why your selection is an instance of prejudice.
