Dear Ms. Kordik,
I still have some questions on how to change the font on one tab so it won't change on all the other tabs. In terms of the content, I think I am doing  alright On the primary source tab I included my own observations and related them to the articles, and in the secondary source tabs I will go about explaining the secondary sources more into depth. I would also like some feedback on

Hi Ricardo,

Honestly, I have no idea how to change the fonts on the tabs. Because Weebly is a free blog site, oftentimes it's not as user-friendly as desired. Also, your question cuts off on "I would also like some feedback on," so I don't know what the rest of your question is.

Your home page looks good, but I do have a question about the thesis. Are you arguing that the authors of Family Guy are actually pointing out the truths and foibles of the American public? If that's the case, it needs to be worded more strongly. As it is, I can't tell if you find it smart or just smartly offensive.

For your race section, make sure to cite both the episode and the article. (For help in citing the epsidoe, go to easybib.com)

Also, I think you can go further with the Disney example. On the surface, it seems like the show is being racist, but on a deeper level, they're commenting about Disney's racism. The joke is actually meant to mock Disney, not blacks. They use the offensive humor as a means of targeting an American corporation...perhaps making comments on the blindness of consumerism. I'd like you to actually try to find more examples of instances like this.

Also, it's difficult to ignore the treatment of Ollie the Weatherman or Cleveland if you're talking about the stereotypes of African Americans.

Ideally, each subtopic should be on a separate tab underneath the umbrella primary source tab.

For your sexuality page, I think there are some issues you may be missing.

1. I like that you're using Quagmire to discuss the "sex-crazed," but there's more to the Meg thing. Both Meg and Chris are the targets of older male advances. Just like the Disney comment, these are meant to mock our culture's obsession with youth being sexy. They exaggerate the pedophilia (which is on the surface level incredibly offensive) in order to point out the ridciulousness of our American perception of sexuality.

2. You are right to take notice of Lois's sexuality. Think of her as more or less representing the average housewife. What do those crazy comments she makes suggest about the mentality of a stereotypical suburban housewife?
