The Communications Media and Southern and Eastern European Ethnic Groups.
This paper discusses bias against southern and eastern European ethnic groups as it appears in current elementary school textbooks, popular fiction, newspapers, television, and movies. Anti-ethnic sentiment expressed by nineteenth and twentieth century politicians is also mentioned. It is held that bias and stereotypes in the media perpetuate and aggravate social injustices committed against white ethnic groups. (GC)
