How the Media Influence Our Choices? On the Next “Conversations Of A Sistah”


untitledWe have to admit the media has a lot of influence on our lives, especially the lives of our young people. They want to mimic the Rhianna’s, Nicky Minaj and Beyoncé’s of this world. They esteem these artist as having the acceptable standards of beauty based upon how they are received by society and the industries who market them.

And then there’s the media’s depiction of beauty and the influence it feeds to the images on television, social media and the internet. The messages are subliminal but the images are powerful. They want to influence how we look, how we feel, what we eat, how we spend our money and even how to invest our time on a daily basis. The repetition is deliberate and can warp one’s perspective of the truth.

Join me tonight for this discussion on “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST. on Blog Talk Radio. In the meantime, sound off here and I’ll see you on the air!

        ———
        There are so many former associates of the Clinton’s who have died prematurely (46 and counting) even recently John Ashe a former United Nations Official set to testify against Hillary dies of a heart attack all of a sudden, I wouldn’t put it past her if she has a kill list.

  5. The election is a month away and between now and then you will see much negativity about Clinton. Especially in ads…It is a ploy to steal votes from Hillary and I will not feed into it.

  6. The media influences in so many ways well they try to anyways especially with movies. They show you the best parts of the movie then when you see the movie it sucks. they try to influence you with their products in commercials. they have the ability because they have access to the masses. we need to start bein mindful of our black dollars and show them until we get justice we have the ability to SHUT DOWN YOUR SYSTEM.

    Good show topic Tracy and I know you will touch down on all of it.

  8. Not voting in this Presidential election is a vote for Trump.
    Make a list of all the good things that will happen to you if you fail to vote for Hillary – which means in effect that you voted for Trump.
