While many critics shy away from discussion of politics, it lies in the misapprehension that criticizing a work’s politics or representation presents a binary where it cannot be good.
It also suggests that shying away from politics somehow means you are apolitical.

Focus not only on experiences different from your own, but on women or people of color who don’t get as much representation not because they’re not good enough, but because they have more to overcome.
The industry remains flawed, and while criticism only has so much power, you do have the power to at least shift the direction of conversation ever so slightly in the right direction.Dyer writes, “Power in contemporary society habitually passes itself off as embodied in the normal as opposed to the superior.” Whiteness, understood as default for innocent or normal, prevents any meaningful progress from being made.Rather than being outright about their asserted superiority, these structures are framed so that maintaining this status quo relieves artists and critics from the overt feeling that they are being racist or preserving inequality.In White, Richard Dyer looks beyond the apparent unremarkability of whiteness and argues for the importance of analysing images of white people.Dyer traces the representation of whiteness by whites in Western visual culture, focusing on the mass media of photography, advertising, fine art, cinema and television.The same logic can similarly be applied to films or patterns in pop culture.Representation in criticism not only makes sense in supporting a diversity of voices (which, as long as they’re good writers, can only be a good thing) but similarly offers opportunities to films and filmmakers who disrupt the concept of normality.At the level of racial representation, whites are not of a certain race.They are just the human race, a 'colour' against which other ethnicities are always examined.Titulo del libro: White: Essays on Race and Culture Autor: Richard Dyer ISBN: 0415095379 Descargue o lea el libro de White: Essays on Race and Culture de Richard Dyer en formato PDF y EPUB.Aquí puedes descargar cualquier libro en formato PDF o Epub gratis.
