what is 'media representation," and what would be examples of media representations that indicate social inequality? having a little trouble here. thanx

I would think "media representation" means pictures, cartoons, advertisements, printed materials–basically anything you'd find on tv, in movies, on the radio, or in newspapers and magazines.

For example, if an upscale store only ever used one ethnic group in its ads, it might indicate that the store assumes only people of that ethnic group will be able to afford to shop there.
