Along with examining race relations in America, Scott is also cognizant of the images that are perpetuated through media. She is infuriated by some of the negative portrayals of blacks, especially on reality TV.
“If I’m in another country and all I see [are] McDonald’s commercials, why wouldn’t I think that’s what America is?” she says rhetorically. “When the representation of an entire people is based on fictitious reality shows, it builds a certain box of who and what we are. To be perfectly frank, we’ve got the wives of doctors fighting in ball gowns. The television and the Internet are creating boxes for us and I believe we are starting to fall for it. Why wouldn’t everybody else? [There] has to be a balance. We’re not so simple. I think that’s a big part of the problem. You can’t expect someone to think differently if they are only shown a specific image. Unfortunately, it’s a tarnished image.”
