  1. Frankly, it amazes me that you pay your money to take a course in which you discuss "Black and White America". One wonders.
    Have you considered "Gay America", or "Latino America", or such? I am reminded of folks who cry in their beer for years, wondering why they never got a chance to be successful....Successful people don't contemplate questions such as this, instead, they search for opportunity, seize it, and get ahead, while others cry in their beer.
    Media? Media feeds garbage to those who consume it, media is in the business to make money.
    Now specifics: Take papers like the New York Post, or San Jose Mercury News, or any of the News Corp papers. Do they work to smooth cultural and economic class differences, or fan it? I guess that is a can of worms. Or take Rush Limbaugh as an example: Is he a unifier, or a flamer? My postulate is that rodents and vultures feed on garbage, and make big issues while doing so.
    America, for all its problems, is not a dividing country. Divisions are made by folks who benefit from it.
    Good luck.

  2. There is no yes or no on that question.
    On any one occasion, part of the media will take one side and part will take the other. Of course there are some that try to take an unbiased position, but most often they are not as loud and pervasive as the "opinionated" ones.
    However, and this could be the good part, in order for anyone to make the best decision possible, all sides of a question must be examined. If all would realize that the solution is somewhere in the "mess of verbage" and be willing to make accommodation to the benefit of all...."ya think"?
