Our project is going to be a blog that represents the public opinion and the news representation of race in America. Were interesting in looking at how mainstream media portrays people of color versus how the general population comments on people color. We are planning on having a blog that is divided into two sections one of images of news articles that discuss race related topics in a problematic way and another section of images of how the population discuses race via social media. We are interested in seeing if there are any parallels between how news outlets and the population discuss race, if one is more overtly racist than the other and the different types of diction they use to discuss/ explain their opinions. We are looking to see if there are trends in social media that dictate news media or vice versa.
