"What was I, then? I hadntbecome a European either, not in France and certainly not inEngland. So what were you, Ricardito? Maybe what Mrs. Richardsoncalled me in her fits of temper: a little pissant, nothing but aninterpreter, somebody, as my colleague Salomon Toledano liked todefine us, who is only when he isnt, a hominid who exists when hestops being what he is so that what other people think and say canpass through him more easily."

Quotes About Media Stereotypes

"Here is your law enforcement and media question of the day: Was the TV show COPS real or BS?It might have been real incidents, but it wasnt really all that real. They edited the episodes to make it appear as if black people were committing fewer crimes. That is what the show creator John Langley said in a 2009 interview in response to people who were unhappy his long-running reality show, COPS, was showing too many black people getting arrested. What irritates me sometimes is critics still watch and say, Oh look, they misrepresent people of color. Thats absolutely not true. To the contrary, I show more white people than statistically what the truth is in terms of street crime..Its just the reverse. And I do that intentionally, because I do not want to contribute to negative stereotypes, said Langley, the shows producer, in 2009." - Author: Colin Flaherty

The game is worthwhile insofar as we dont know where it will end." - Author: Michel Foucault
