ENTRY 3 – Nguyễn Trà My

27 Th11


Identifying Bias



–       Discrimination  (racism discrimination)

–       Analysis : It is clear that colored people suffer from the discrimination in public places like where they are allowed to drink water. And in this picture, their water tank is very small and dirty. Because white people believe that colored people do not have the same class with them and they just receive poor services.


Source :

–       Prejudice (gender prejudice)

–       Analysis : Men, mostly, were working and earning the income, while women inside were the ones busy working for the daily housework such as cooking, washing and taking care children. In this advertisement, the woman stands behind the man and the script  “the Chef does everything but cook- that’s what wives are for!” shows the men’s opinion about their wives duty.



–       Bias caused by emotive language

–       Analysis : the word they use to call a police “a cop” like the way of criminals. This title can cause a misunderstanding about the police and also cause many controversial comments from the readers.

    Hi Tra My,
    I have comments on your second item about the advertisement.I thinks this is gender discrimination not gender prejuidice , particularly in this case is discrimination about the role of woman and man in the society.Woman is believed to be taken responsibility for housework like cooking or cleaning.Man is responsible for earning money to support to the whole family.
