Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV


Why are reality TV's stock characters (The Desperate Bachelorette, The Angry
Black Woman, The Douchebag Dude) so regressive? What are Frankenbites and other
open secrets in the reality TV industry? Why does pop culture reduce women and people
of color to such limiting stereotypes? Find out at the first Chicago book reading for
Reality Bites Back. Expect critical media commentary, revealing insights about gender,
race, and class in the entertainment industry, and lots of laughs. Find out why Princeton
professor and MSNBC contributor Melissa Harris-Perry says Reality Bites Back "should
be required reading for every American girl and woman."
