I love Lucy best blooper video, clearly shows how during the golden age of Television minorities where most of the times excluded, and when they were included in an scene they were mocked on. Also lucy is portraited as the hapless housewife who was not allowed to work outside the home, this show was very popular during the 1950’s.

Quiz #5 question

Why was the golden age of TV not so golden for everyone?

It was not so golden because not everybody was included, it discriminated against minorities, and also it promoted stereotypes as well as inequality. Also in this golden age television’s content was not meant to educate but to entertain.
