This is a page of Vogue magazine; in picture is Le Bron, a black basketball player, posing for picture with a white world’s top supermodel. So this has to be a racial issue. It can be seen Le Bron’s scowling face and standing position; that shows his strength and indignation; in addition, he is standing beside a white supermodel and hugging her waist. Therefore, Le Bron James’ pose is also evoking unsettling racial stereotypes in America; because in America, normally, the Black is always disparaged by the White. They are always seen as criminals and dirty in society by the White. So Le Bron Jame’ s action in the picture as if he is negative that.
Bias: Prejudice and sexism discrimination.
Analysis: In this picture is a family: parents and a child who is gay.
Prejudice: His parents have their so angry and unacceptable attitude with child when he says he can be a gay although this is human being’s physiology and their child does not look forward to that at all.
Sexism discrimination: the parent will be happy if their child is not gay. Actually, when they hear their child saying that “I’m afraid I’m straight!”, they look at him uncomfortably and disparagingly.
Analysis: in this cartoon image is a meeting of a group of leaders and the banner sentence “I believe there are no bad leaders, only bad followers”. We can find scapegoating here. Those leaders cannot blame “only bad followers” because they have not got any evidences, but they only “believe that”. Actually, no one can determined the leaders or only followers are bad.
