    From the time I was born I have always lived in the same area. Quebec City is not one of the most culturally diverse places in North America. As a result growing up in an non-culturally diverse region, I have never been exposed to other customs. There have always been a few people of different race in my schools, although most of them were 3rd or 4th generation immigrants, and therefore had long been since assimilated by the western ways. Then I had to move away from home in order to attend university. I was moving from one of the least culturally diverse places to one of the most cultura

    Richard Wright’s groundbreaking novel Native Son reflects a bleak image of American Judiciary. The trial of Bigger Thomas, the black protagonist, demonstrates how the racialized judiciary works as part of the Repressive State Apparatus to erase the possibility of black revival - shown in Bigger’s murder of Mary Dalton, daughter of a millionaire white family - and to keep intact the white superiority. In this novel, Wright takes the liberty of speaking through the character of Max, a communist and an emblem for Wright’s own political belief, to defend Bigger, his hero. I

    Today the media portrays African American males as hoodlums and thugs. The racism present in today’s media needs to be addressed and dealt with. African Americans suffer from institutional racism, are misrepresented in the news, and their portrayals on television are based on negative stereotypes that do not accurately portray reality. If there is not a major change in the media’s policy toward African Americans then this negative stereotype will continue to dominate popular opinion and eventually become an uncontested fact. “Television, or specifically media, is not merely a reflection of re
