According to Berger, the media could not assuage ┬áthe racial anxieties of whites without affecting the depiction of blacks. Although it’s fine to incorporate and show images of well established cruel fight of oppression against black Americans, but why when they’re unified, protesting against what’s wrong and to champion civil rights together, it gets brushed aside. I agree with Berger because the media shows more images of blacks as victims to rouse white people’s awareness to black civil rights. In late May of 2020 after George Floyd’s death a good number of whites took to the streets to join in protest with black Americans because they saw “Floyd the victim”. This attracted whites and encouraged them also to bolster racial reform in society.
