A comparison of representations of ethnic minorities in print advertising
The first 200 words of this essay...
In this essay I will be analysing prints adverts to see if the ethnic minority included in the advert is represented negatively or positively. To do this I will start by looking at historic adverts ranging from the 1890's all the way to 1980. Then I will go on to look at three more recent adverts which are Pepto Bismol, United Colours of Benetton, and Green King and decide for myself how they're represented.

This advert is suggesting that black people should be used as slaves and they are happy about it. The ethnic minority in this advert
