    This propaganda is beneficial because it is helping to try to get rid of the stereotype and bias that all terrorists in the United States are people of color.

    It is a misleading meme since all figures look masculine!! So is it only males that cause social problems?! Too biased to be true...

    Still serves to bolster and perpetuate generalisations about "types" of people. The nature of the images carry a range of implications.
