To say my prejudices have no control over the choices I make would be a lie. In the past, preconceived notions and personal bias subconsciously controlled the decisions I made when choosing a genre to watch. I was raised in an African American household and a fan of Child’s Play just two years after my birth. I often watched horror films, thrillers and many stereotypical African American comedies and dramas as though other genres never existed. In my defense, being raised in a small town, often led African American films to be the only sense of culture I could related to besides the values learned from my own parents. I rarely believed TV series and predominately Caucasian casted films were of interest nonetheless funny. I always believed “white humor” should never be compared to “black humor.” My strong personality and opinion for many things would cause many to assume I am nothing less than ignorant, and for that I apologize. In my day to day life, I embrace all cultures and ethnicities, but when it came to choosing what to watch, my ignorance surfaced.Once I left my small town for college, I found myself progressively interested in TV series, romantic comedies and dramas more than I can measure. Furthermore, my interest in African American films and horror rapidly declined. Contrary to popular belief, my strong exterior has a soft spot for drama and romance.
