Remember, media is controlled by those who want certain images to be portrayed and certain beliefs to be spread and accepted. Look beyond, local news and find your own news. Yes, they want us to be viewed a certain way. Yes, negativity about us is disseminated more than the positive. However, we know the truth. We know who we are. We know what we are capable of. We know what we have done. We know what we continue to do.
Understand that our portrayal is controlled by those who want us to continue to be deemed as inferior, violent, ignorant etc. However, we do not have to accept this portrayal. Use your life, accomplishments and struggle as a rebellion against the portrayal. Use your education as a vessel to others that the portrayal is false and that there are many positive stories of the greatness we do and are.
