Afro-Brazilians: Representation of and Feelings About Their Portrayals on Television
The main purpose of this article is to investigate how African-Brazilians understand their images on television, which feelings are triggered by the interpretations of these portrayals and which strategies are used in dealing with these representations. Grounded-theory research was applied and data was obtained from 37 African-Brazilians who are heavy television viewers. Our findings indicate that: a) interviewees believe that the very few portrayals of African-Brazilians on television are stigmatized; b) negative feelings are triggered in their interpretations; c) interviewees deconstruct, reject and do not identify with such representations.
