Stereotypes are commonplace in every society Often times these stereotypes are hateful and made to degrade another race creed or any other group of people These statements are very general and include the entire group without exemption to the individuals in that group Racism in film is not a new theme It has been a theme for many films that have been released over the last century From John Fords Stagecoach 1939 to movies today like American History X 1999 and South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut 1999 racism seems to be drawing audiences to the movie theatre These movies push the limit as far as they can be pushed Racism is a part of everyones lives whether anyone will admit or not that is still the question We learn in high school about our countrys problems with slavery and how the African-Americans overcome and are treated equal under the United States Constitution We learn the hardships of the Jewish religion through Adolf Hitler and the holocaust in Germany during World War II We are taught about Martin Luther King and his speech during the Civil Rights Movement We lived through the brutal killing of Matthew Shephard who was beaten to death because he was gay We live through racism day in and day out I can account for numerous times when a racist joke was said just to get a laugh I think for the most of us we live through racism indirectly Many people in todays society are not as blatant and as vocal towards select groups as they once were Even the word nigger as lost a lot of its meaning Today the word is used in the sense of friend not as the derogatory term it once was used for All of these aspects toward racism create a dull sense towards it Basically thanks to living through extremely racist times today it is fabricated Yes there are still groups
