Spend a few nights watching your typical television programming, or your typical informational materials (newspapers, you tube, etc.,). Record instances of racial and ethnic diversity, individuals with disabilities, individuals who are gay/lesbian/ bisexual/transgender/transsexual/pansexual/gender fluid, individuals form varied linguistic backgrounds, various regions of the United States etc. Document on a chart the media sources, frequency of occurrences of such individuals,, as well as the portrayal of such individuals: who is portrayed weak? Strong? Stands up for whom? Is this the main character or a supporting/ancillary character? Is the character portrayed as multifaceted (having range of strengths, weaknesses, emotions, etc.) or unidimensional and static? Which characters are portrayed as smart? Fighters? Or victims?
