Islamophobia is becoming pervasive in TV dramas–along with glorification of the military & CIA. Vampires, living dead creatures, & other hobgoblin things are big too. At least that’s so on the networks since I don’t have cable TV.
Yesterday, one drama had two young suicide bombers (one named Omar & the other a Black kid) who were controlled by an older vengeful terrorist. They make no attempts whatsoever to be subtle in their message.
Many people eschew TV as lowbrow entertainment but not everybody wants to watch a Shakespeare play to relax. There’s actually lots of fun stuff to watch but we’d like it to not be a brainwashing forum.
