Does the Media Manipulate Cultural Perceptions of Beauty?

Interesting question:  does the media manipulate the cultural perceptions of beauty?

Why are the models in magazines and ads thin -- and more often than not -- white?

Why are the female objects of desire in cartoons anthropomorphized to appear blond and blue-eyed (Lady in "Lady and the Tramp", anyone?)

Why are the children in Black shows often bi-racial?

Why do almost all of the Black female celebrities wear wigs and weaves?

Are children of color being brainwashed toward self-hatred through television programming and advertising?  

We attempt to answer these questions with the help of our guest panelist, Debate Award Winning High School Junior, Nalia.

Watch the show here and tell us your opinion.
