According to statistics "Minorities are not getting enough job in Media industries"


In the article name “In the news industry, diversity is lowest at smaller outlets” by Michael
Barthel is about how minorities are still underrepresented in the United States of America. Even
Though so many minorities are getting promoted in better position like Michael says, “Dean
Baquet becomes the first black executive editor of The New York Times and Lester Holt become

  the first black solo anchor of a weeknight network news program” Especially in journalism,
television and communication field of graduation non-minorities are getting a full-time job within
a year than minorities is getting. They all are graduate educated but still there is always
discrimination among minorities and non-minorities all the time.
America is an immigrant country. Immigrant people represent America just because non-minorities
came first in this country doesn’t mean that they are the ruler. Non-minorities are also
was minorities once and Native American was non-minorities. Statistics has shown that there is
huge difference getting a job and having a desired position among minorities and non-minorities.  
As Michael has mentioned in the article that “Nearly one-in-four minority employees at dailies
(22%) left or lost their jobs in 2014, the largest level of minority job loss since ASNE began
gathering data in 1984. Of white employees, 14% left their organizations in 2014.” People can
clearly see that employees are losing their jobs in a big amount of numbers. Within a small time.

Facebook having a "dislike" button.

Having a dislike button on Facebook is going to be a huge change in our society. Whoever post something on Facebook some people like it and few of them who dislike it they write some negative comments, the rest of them just read the post and avoid to response with anything.

Now people have the option to dislike something, they will definitely response their feelings by tapping dislike button. Although everybody has their own opinion about this topic but eventually it will make a major change in Facebook homepage.

G.e Taylor commented on New York Times article “Coming Soon to Facebook: A ‘Dislike’ Button” by Vindu Goel, that “Why not just a "Do Not Agree" / "Disagree" / "Myeh" button? And Bill Michton commented that “People have been talking about wanting a dislike button practically from FB's beginning. Good thing Zuckerberg is so attuned to his customers.”

Dislike button can make a change in our future culture also. About 1.5 billion people are using Facebook on a daily basis, they are uploading their personal pictures, post, their feelings, and sometimes people can dislike on others sad moment. Some people will take this dislike as an offensive and there will be a less friendly environment in Facebook homepage. As I said earlier people have a different opinion so young users can feel very sad if they are getting more dislike’s rather than like’s on their post or personal pictures.
