Racism and Police Brutality. What do people think?
In this presentation, I took a class survey about which races is the most affected by police brutality. Then, I added 3 charts of statistics about which race is affected the most.
I made this presentation with google slides, and then screen recorded the slides. I added a lot of information, facts and opinions to make the presentation more informational. Instead of adding a voice over, I just added music because I wanted the text on the screen to stand out. On top of the slides, I added royalty free music to add audio.
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.
Opinions on Racism
I made a video about different opinions on racism. I talked about how I think of the author’s opinions and added on to what they said.
I went online and researched three different websites on different people’s opinions on racism. Then I included the three quotes in my video. I used a voiceover to explain what the quotes mean. I also talked about what I think of the author’s opinion. I found background pictures for my video with the racism theme. This fits in my project because not only did I include my own opinion but I included other authors opinion on racism. I learned that racism affects everyone not just certain ethnicity groups.

Progress on Views
We are successful on getting viewers as you can see from the amount of signatures we are getting from our petition. We are still trying to increase the views.
Police Brutality facts
- Blacks, especially women, are more likely to have been unarmed when killed by police than non-blacks, and that risk appears to increase in police departments with a greater presence of non-white officers, according to a new study of nationwide data from Washington University in St. Louis.”
- “Nearly 94 percent of those killed by police are men; about 46 percent are white; about 22 percent had a history of drug abuse or mental illness.”
- “The ages of unarmed people killed by police in the database range from 5 to more than 100 years old, including people who were 101, 103 and 107.”
- “More than 57 percent of African American women were killed while unarmed; white males were the least likely to have been unarmed when killed at just under 20 percent.”
- Everding, Gerry. “Police Kill Unarmed Blacks More Often, Especially When They Are Women, Study Finds | The Source | Washington University in St. Louis.” The Source, 14 Feb. 2018, source.wustl.edu/2018/02/police-kill-unarmed-blacks-often-especially-women-study-finds/.
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.

I am creating a slideshow to talk about the different opinions people have on racism. I will use sources online and add what I think of it.
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…
