    I really like that you included the importance of thinking critically when watching films and advertisements that contain racialized notions of beauty. I was always caught up between boycotting even watching the film or ignoring it but its really hard too! But this is a much more practical way to understand how producers of these media outlets are trying to shape our behavior and perceptions of self value.
