What is the composition of the primary characters, and what groups within diversity do they represent?

· The popular culture example that I’m using is the cartoon show The Boondocks. The premise of this show explored the daily life of a Black family living in the suburbs (McGruder, 2005). Living in the suburbs introduces them to different cultures, lifestyles, and social classes (McGruder, 2005). The primary characters are Black who are two grandsons Riley and Huey of the grandfather Robert Freeman (McGruder, 2005). The two young brothers Riley and Huey moved away from the city of Chicago to live in the suburbs with their grandfather (McGruder, 2005). Huey represented the not typical Black kid that is portrayed in the media because he is politically and socially conscious (McGruder, 2005). While Riley, represented the lost Black youth, which is the typical Black kid that is portrayed in the media (McGruder, 2005). The grandfather Robert Freeman, is the traditional Black grandfather who is tried his best to raise his grandchildren (McGruder, 2005). So, Huey represented the non-stereotypical Black youth, Riley represented the stereotypical Black youth, and the grandfather represented the stereotypical Black grandfather, which are the groups that they represent within diversity.

· What is the latent (or unintended) social message or commentary about a particular group to society that is reflected by this example?

· The unintended social message of this cartoon is that Black people are not a monolith and we have different personalities, skills, talents, and abilities.

· What are the social implications of this message? Briefly discuss any potential social impact or response to the example.

· The social implication of this message is to seek for understanding and knowledge of Black culture versus judging them based on stereotypes. The complexities of Black culture is underrepresented in the media, so people should seek for knowledge of the complexities of Black culture. In the media, they typically portray Black people as either criminals, misguided, or entertainers and our culture is not limited to that. The messaging in this show provokes curiosity, which can lead to learning about Black culture.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
