The most beloved character in the science-fiction series of the 60's is Spock. Spock, half human half Vulcan, sets out on his lifetime goal of being a complete Vulcan, while suppressing the “human” side of him. In the article presented by a Doctor Douglas W. Texter, he first nicely introduces his anecdotes, then sets off on the characterization of Spock, with the historical context of the diminishing masculinity in the last forty years.

In the BBC article "Daily torment of racism in the classroom" published on May 23rd, 2012, Divya Talwar discusses the racial discrimination a year 9 student, Khadeja Fahat, has had to face at school in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Certain of her classmates have verbally and physically attacked her. She has been labeled as a Terrorist or a Taliban, associated with the 9/11 attack and has been punched once in the ribs by a pupil all due to her appearance.

I really do have a lot of problem for this disturbing ad, because in this 2010 Burger King ad, the dominant title is “It’ll blow your mind your mind away”. Right next to it is an unrealistic looking girl (at a young age). The sandwich, it what it appears to be a beef sandwich (topped with onions and steak sauce), approaches the girl who is opened mouth with lipstick (that looks small).

They are savagely brutalised, slammed to the ground, dragged, beaten, pummelled, pushed, by police officers with the excuse that they were angry black women. Almost all cases reported of brutality ended up with the same story… that these women looked like suspects.
