Skins - Ethnicity

Thomas is an immigrant from the Congo. Due to his African upbringing, he finds it hard to understand the British way of life. The show portrzys the streotypical view of black people, dressed in a hoodie, and living in a poor accomadation. It also shows the stereotypical view of black people being poor and having no money, the only way they can make money is doing something 'wrong' or 'illegal' like sellings drugs or stealing.

  1. Thanks, Bank. A perfect still of how a stereotypical black character may be presented.

    For homework, start researching music magazines and thinking about your own music magazine and the typical reader of it.
