I have recently completed my capstone project which focused on racism in South Park. South Park is a comedy show that tends to poke fun at problems in today's society, especially when it comes to race. This show is intended for a mature audience, however, many young teenager or pre-teens watch this show. They may not understand the current problems in today's society when it comes to race, and this stereotyping can greatly influence the way they view minorities. I am emailing you in regards to the Comet, our school newspaper. I was hoping that you would be able to have an article written on race in the media and how some of these things are not meant to be taken seriously, and that people should always question the things that they see in the media.
