  8. 8. ETHNIC REPRESENTATIONS Gang culture and black people is a frequent stereotype Black and asian people as immigrants are featured Working class black youths are commonly stereotyped as criminal, a stereotype which is spreading to Asian youths too. With black youth in particular, we often see heavily Americanised characteristics through language, dress and musical tastes for example. White wealthy upper class is a frequent stereotype You may also get white racist characters featured
  9. 9. ETHNIC REPRESENTATIONS The most negative stereotype, of Muslim Asian/Middle Eastern characters, is actually very similar to an old stereotype of the Northern Irish: violent, backwards, religious, fanatical. Since 9/11 certain ethnic groups - Muslims - have been negatively represented. Religion is often involved in ethnic representation – look out for religious figures being negatively represented and non-religious figures being treated more positively. The whole question of Britishness and citizenship is often featured. Indeed, Western v non-Western (in terms of clothing, social attitudes – eg towards women and alcohol – religious practice, music etc) can be a key binary opposition to look for.
