Television, Black Americans, and the American Dream.
Gray, Herman
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v6 n4 p376-86 Dec 1989
Examines fictional television representations of Black middle class success in "The Cosby Show" and nonfictional representations of Black urban poverty in a CBS news documentary. Suggests that these representations operate intertextually to produce an ideology which explains both by privileging individual attributes and middle class values and by displacing social and structural factors.
