All our members are very on the ball when it comes to highlighting issues of discrimination in today’s society. This week’s opinion comes from one of our extremely dedicated members- Reynaldo Budhi. Thanks for sharing!
“I personally think that discrimination around the world has its main origin in Hollywood movies and mainstream entertainment programming. If you travel to movie theaters in different countries, you’ll see that everyone watches Hollywood movies. Generally, the first exposure to foreigners that most people have is from watching these movies and TV. Unfortunately, Hollywood itself is rife with discrimination. Here’s an article entitled, “25 minority Characters that Hollywood Whitewashed”. Of course, there is no reason to discriminate, especially in education. I’m just pointing out where I believe much of it originates.”
