Racial Objectification In Pop Culture Outlets

Dear Wesleyan,

For a class of ours, we’re doing a study/presentation on racial objectification in pop culture and it would be very helpful if you could contribute five minutes and any opinions you have on this subject.

Relevant and accessible reality TV shows we’ve thought of are Flavor of Love, Black/White, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, I Love New York, and Charm School, but if you have watched any others that you feel contribute to racial objectification, feel free to talk about it! This survey is 100% anonymous and is intended only to get a feel for how these TV shows impact students at Wesleyan, if they do at all. Please feel free to answer as few or as many questions as time permits and as you feel comfortable.

The link to the survey is here.

We appreciate your help, feel free to email us personally if you have any questions.

(I don’t know about you guys, but A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila has to be my fav out of those five…come on, a SHOT at love with tila TEQUILA!? I love when they do silly things like that with titles).
