Police Violence Broken Down

This chart was the  most interesting part of the project for me. Looking at just numbers, more white people get murdered by police every year. But if you were to break it down, there are more Caucasians in the US then there are African Americas. So number wise there are more whites killed then blacks but there are also more whites then there are blacks.

information from : https://www.statista.com/chart/5211/us-citizens-killed-by-police-2016/

There are 160 million more white people in America then there are black people. So technically the number is higher among whites then blacks but if there were the same amount of people in each race then blacks are 2.5 more likely to be killed.

Final Project Plan

For the final project i decided to make a blog about the hashtag “black lives matter.” #blacklivesmatter is something that i am very interested in and feel strongly about. My plan for this project is to make a 1 minute video asking all different people how they feel about the hashtag and what it means to them. I also am going to make one chart and one visual. I am thinking for the visual to kind of incorporate audio of a poem i wrote and pictures. I will use pictures from different news outlets that have coveredr rallies made but the Black Lives Matter movement.
