Cultural Representations

Scope note

Cultural  representations  refer  to  popular  stereotypes,  images,  frames and  narratives  that  are  socialized  and  reinforced  by  media,  language  and  other  forms  of  mass communication  and  “common  sense.”    Cultural  representations  can  be  positive  or  negative,  but from the perspective of the dismantling structural racism analysis, too often cultural representations depict people of color in ways that are dehumanizing, perpetuate inaccurate stereotypes, and have the overall effect of allowing unfair treatment within the society as a whole to seem fair, or ‘natural.’
