    I used this book as research for a class called Race and Gender in the Media if you want to have your eyes opened in regards as to how African Americans have been portrayed on television then give this a go I can t say I enjoyed it as that is too cheerful a word, but do not regret reading any of it It is very enlightening and still keeps me alert when I watch television at how race plays a role, not just African Americans, but Asians and Latinos as well.
