Subject: Re: Stereotyping of Accent on Film/TV
I was very interested to read of stereotyping of accent in American
film/TV. My children have over the past several years watched quite a few
cartoons. I, too, have noticed that the bad guys quite often have certain
dialects. I can't say, however, that I remember the Brits being picked on.
I've noticed that the bad guys most often have either a Mexican or New
York (probably to be identified with the Mafia) accent.
