Deconstructing Stereotypes In Mass Media

Abstract: In this brief paper (7 pages), I describe two major stereotypes of Asians: the ‘model minority’ stereotype and the ‘unsociable’ stereotype. Then, I assess how these stereotypes relate to one another, white hegemony, and Cultivation Theory. This article gives a special focus on the media’s involvement in such perpetuation. All citations of scholarly sources are in APA format.
