Palatable Blackness: An Examination of the Mediated Messages About Blackness As Seen in The Media

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

My presentation/paper is entitled "Palatable Blackness" I want to discuss how the media has seemingly repackaged the image of Blacks, especially Black women to fit what they deem acceptable/beautiful. For example, the images of diasporic Africans seen in the media are usually mixed raced, racially unidentifiable, or seen separately (i.e. rarely do we see a Black man coupled with a brown or dark skinned Black women on tv). In doing so, I believe that these mediated images serve as a sort of propaganda to further disseminate the message that Blackness is not to be desired. It also serves, in many ways, to further subjugate Black people and cause them to desire whiteness or have a connection to it. Even in the entertainment industry, as it involves the work of Black artisans, do we rarely see them paired with other Blacks. This push away from Blackness is not new, but hides under the guise of multiculturalism. I want to explain the damage this causes in the Black male/female dynamic, self perception of young Black people and the impact that it has on future generations.
