The article Black athletes stereotyped negatively in media compared to white athletes is an informative article. This article based on a quantitative study completed by the University of Missouri- Columbia. The goal of the study was to determine if there was any racial difference in regards to the stereotyping the media portray on athletes. The study consisted of 155 articles on male athletes. Each article was categorized among one of seven themes; crime, domestic violence, training/hard work, moral success or failure, violating rules of the sports league, accomplishments, and personal lifestyle.The study showed while more articles were written about white athletes overall. Sixty-six percent of the articles written in a negative aspect, were towards black athletes. This study did not discuss any other ethnic group. I agreed with the writer of this article that the media plays a large role in how athletes are stereo typed not only by the rest of the media but also society.

I see this as another great form of foreshadowing. It tells that the
general has found something with reason. He imports his own
animals. I feel that he might be hunting humans because animals

hunter and would be a great challenge. I think that this is how he…
