I am very proud of the progress we as a group has made for our petition. We are very close to our goal of 1,000 signatures. So far we have 863 signatures. This is a big milestone for us since we have started. Many people are realizing that racism is a problem everywhere not just locally.

I created this meme because my goal is to change people’s view on racism. I want to get people to realize how bad the problem of racism is. This meme is about a guy not caring about racism to changing his mind on it.

Police Brutality: What is it? What do people think?
In our technology class, we were assigned to do a video presentation on a topic of our choice. I chose “Police Brutality: What is it? What do people think?” I approached this question by asking my fellow classmates for answers. Sit back and enjoy this short video. 🙂
I made this presentation with the help of some classmates that volunteered to answer my question. I asked them a very simple question, “Is police brutality a problem and why?” At first, I gathered my research on the opinions of racism for the starting point of my data. After, I put together a short yet complex question to ask my fellow classmates. Then, I designated a day for me to ask a couple of my classmates that question. After editing the short clips, I put together this video to best display their answers and other people’s answers.
This fits into my project because it shows what police brutality is to people and why it is a problem. This short film is a visual representation of what people think about police brutality. I learned many things from making this experiment along with many social ideas for further projects. I learned how to approach people for surveys, how to ask a question, what type of questions to ask, and how to accept everyone’s answers. Through videos like these, people can see the raw answers given by regular people and even those who are in school. Feel free to share this video to a friend or two, and leave some comments or a few.
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.
