Our Blog Statistics
Currently, they barely any viewers that visit our blog posts. The last visit we have only had two visitors. I believe we can fix this by post more on social media and using hashtags when posting. We can also follow more websites that support or share the same cause as us.
Currently, on May 10, 2019, there are 863 signatures on our petition. That is great news! We are almost at 1,000 signatures. If you haven’t already, go check it out at change.org!
Statistics of Racism
In this article we will review statistics on racism, such as how people of color feel about discrimination. The results will be in charts and in the video there are explanations of what the charts show.
In order to make the video, I first found the information and data I needed. I used Google Slides and made about a 1 minute presentation. I had no idea how to create the slides into a video, so I used my phone’s screen recording option and recorded the whole presentation. Additionally, I was faced with another problem — I did not know how to put audio onto the video. The app iMovie had music, but none of it was the type of music I wanted. I did not know how to download music from youtube, so the video was left with no audio.
I learned many new things by creating this presentation and video — the majority of blacks feel discriminated in their everyday lives, such as walking outside or even at work. However, there is a good amount of blacks that face no discrimination, showing that their is a chance that racism is being limited to certain people.
Our petition is doing amazing! We currently have 826 signatures as of May 3, 2019. We are almost at our 1000 signatures, proving that police brutality is a problem and people out there are willing to help support our cause. If you haven’t already, sign out petition:
Currently, our petition has 569 signatures. We were nervous in the beginning, most likely because we had only about 20 signatures. Surprisingly, our petition blew up and gained a following. We have tried making social media influencers help our cause, but no one ever noticed or replied. We will try to gain more attention because police brutality and racism is a huge problem right now.

Dollar Store Racism
What that man said in the store shows that he is such a disrespectful human being. The fact that when the writer confronted him, he justified himself by saying that they were being racist. Even though the writer did not feel proud for calling the racist out, what he did was still good. If you don’t call out racists, they will continue to say racial slurs.
Hey Peeperoos. A happy Saturday morning to you all. I hope these two days are good to you by way of either spending time with your loved ones or carving out some time just for you and you alone. Either option is good, yes?
Here’s how I kicked off my weekend. After work on Friday evening, I stopped in at the Dollarama to pick up some cleaning products. Hey, don’t judge me. I love the dollar store. Walking up and down the aisles is weirdly relaxing for me.
First, I’d like to apologize in advance. The terms and language used here might very well be offensive to some.
I’m was standing in a long-ish line waiting to pay, but it was moving quickly. Standing behind me what was an older “gentlemen” (that term is being used more loosely than a call girl in Vegas). Moving forward, I’m just going to…

Statistics of Discrimination in workplaces
This chart of discrimination at workplaces from the website https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/10/black-stem-employees-perceive-a-range-of-race-related-slights-and-inequities-at-work/ show how blacks feel the most discriminated against when getting a job, a promotion, and at work. Out of the whites, hispanics, asians, and blacks, whites feel the most comfortable in their environment. This comes to show that racism does exist and it is affecting people at their work. How are they supposed to feel safe when they are judged by the co- workers?
RECOGNIZING RACISM REQUIRES US TO SEE IN COLOR
I mean exactly what the title says — recognizing racism requires us to see in color. If we don’t acknowledge the fact that there is racism in to world, it will still exist and no one will be able to limit or prevent it.
I’ve heard people say “I am colorblind” when the topic of racism arises. I know what they mean to say… “they” meaning white people like me… mean to say they love all races equally. I may have even said it before myself. But I’ve come to understand why it’s not helpful. Furthermore, why the concept is harmful.
I hope I am NEVER colorblind. I love color too much.
Wouldn’t it be better to recognize and see the beauty all of us have to offer the world. Why be blind to something that makes us, all of us, beautiful?
To be colorblind is to ignore the issues that need attending to. You have to RECOGNIZE and see the colors in order to understand the fight. Because the truth is…. society isn’t colorblind. It never will be. And racism is something we really should be fighting against everyday.
The first step in…
