Image on Poverty
An image used in Greg’s lecture was a poster advertisement expressing the poverty of children in New Zealand. Although at first sight one would not deem this poster derogatory, however small insignificant details show stereotypes which are racially focused. A strong example of this is the mat, which has a resemblance to Maori and Polynesian culture. This therefore is stereotyping Maori and Polynesian family’s to be a main or huge cause which is very racially derogatory. The need to specifically seek out a race, generalises and detract from an entire race.
