Tell-LIE-Vision: White Supremacy's Number One Weapon

 The Socialization Influence of Television on Black Children

The family, schools, and churches have long been recognized as major agents of socialization. Increasingly, television is being added to the list of institutions assuming key roles in the socialization process-the process by which one learns  information, cognitive processes, values, attitudes, social roles, self-concepts, and behaviors that are generally accepted within American society ( Berger and Luckmann, 1967: Dorr, 1982).
Berry (1980) maintains that many youngsters used televised information, messages, and portrayals as a way of reinforcing their beliefs and in the process, grant television a role comparable to the traditional socializing agents. Similarly, Comstock, ( 1978) describes television as a source of  vicarious socialization that competes with other socializing agents in providing role models and information that affect children's attitudes, belief and behavior.

A great deal of  the concern expressed by parents, educators and others about the possible influence of television on children is linked to the notion that television performs some socialization functions. Cognizant of the fact that television PROGRAMS and characters may exert and influence on children's behaviors, attitudes, values and beliefs, Black parents and professionals became particularly concerned that  television might (1) Influence Black children's attitudes.

“However, children and teens are being exposed to an increasing number of fast-food advertisements, particularly
black children and youths.”
Data were generated from Nielsen Media Research, which assessed total annual exposure to food advertising in 2003, 2005 and 2007.

Racial gaps in advertising over time increased as well.

“In particular, black children and teens had more than double the rate of increase in exposure to fast-food ads compared to their white counterparts,” Powell and colleagues wrote.  Exposure to fast-food advertisements increased in all age groups (2 to 5 years, 5%; 6 to 11 years, 12%; 12 to 17 years, 20%).

“Physicians should continue to encourage parents to limit their children's television viewing time and not necessarily replace it with other media — replacing it with physical activity or reading would be best,” Powell said. – by Matthew Brannon

The video below is an excellent commentary on how racism (White Supremacy) is communicated through television.  I hope that you will begin to evaluate what images you allow in your home & mind's eye - evaluate what images you allow the White Supremacists who produce programming to cement into the psyche of yourself and your offspring.

  Who Controls The Media That Market White Supremacy?

*Who Rules America? The Alien Grip on Our News and Entertainment Media Must Be Broken 

I strongly recommend reading the following article: Television and Children

*I will use links to sites and sources published by suspected and admitted White Supremacists if they are useful in gathering and analyzing information for the purpose of discovering the truth.  It is up to you to think critically and evaluate the information presented.

 I will visit this topic several more times in this blog. The pervasive reach of White Supremacist programming is one of the most powerful tools in expanding and maintaining the global system of Racism (White Supremacy). Many of us are allowing the minds of our loved ones, as well as our own to be poisoned with it.

My People, My Purpose, My Passion.
