The representation of African-Americans in American media is greatly criminalizing. As a matter of fact, the most important ethical issue raised by the social media twitter hashtag #iftheygunnedmedown is the portrayal and misrepresentation of African-Americans in the United States media through the pictures chosen to represent them.

After the Roe vs Wade case, she was elected for three terms in the Texas House of Representatives.
