Lit Review
Black Lives Matter
Pan African Film Festival
I am for violence if non-violence means we continue postponing a solution to the American black man's problem just to avoid violence.
-Malcolm X

"Black Lives Matter" Pan African Film Festival
Panel: Patrice Cullors (founder of black lives matter), Robert Singleton (Freedom Rider), Erica Huggens and (Black Panthers), Professor in Africana Studies at CSULA
Race: Black
Location: The Bridge at Crenshaw Mall
Patrice Cullors: " We don't need any help from white people at this time. This is a time for unity for black people. We need to come together if we want change"
Erica Huggens: " We need an education campaign to bring together the church, schools and more"

ex: Ferguson= 1/5 of the entire operating budget comes from punitive efforts and funds. 2/3 of the population are African American and all of the people in power are white and there is a virtually all white police force with a lot of pressure to increase revenue → problems are inevitable with the African American population.

Pizza And Politics #1: Race, The Police, and Voting Rights (2/24)
Evan Gerstmann (Political Science professor, race: White,
sex: male) and Brad Stone (Philosophy department, Race: Black, sex: male)
Police are under tremendous amounts of pressure to increase revenue by using punitive measures .
“Big problems come from small things; death by 1,000 cuts” -Foucault
-Race has always been economic in America
-“For African Americans, racism is a daily, frequent, unspectacular occurrence.”
-With the police in reference to black men and boys, anything that looks “shady” raises automatic judgment.
-Solution= programs from young black men. But who funds the programs? Law enforcement.
Connecting Urban Youth
& Law Enforcement/ Interview w/Sgt.Cody
Attendees- 21 people, 4 and 3 middle school/HS, and
4 girls.
Youth feel that if they spoke to an African American officer that they'd feel their opinions and feelings could be heard.
Juvenile Myth-Major Problem
Level of interaction can dictate the end result.
Ignorance met with ignorance leads to confrontational results.
Don't be compliant, use self control.
Officers of Civil Unrest- Can't control who shows up, and level of uncertainty of trainees could be launching point of civil unrest. More senior officers could do better crowd control.
1.What are the causes of the killings of unarmed black men?

2.What can we do to solve this issue?

What's Going On: A National Perspective
Los Angeles study revealed community opinions of "racialized" news coverage
Overrepresented of blacks as "perpetrators, whites are overrepresented as victims, and black-on-white crime is overrepresented relative to crime within racial groups. The over representation is relative to police department crime statistics, not population."
Local news consumption effects viewers stereotypical perceptions.
Los Angeles study revealed trends in Blacks/Latinos and Whites/Asians in the areas of wealth, intelligent, self-support, involvement
Reveal answers to fundamental questions underlying the research

Overview of strategies proposed by local leaders and organizations
Greek demographic mostly white

African American respondents would be more aware of issues concerning the killing of unarmed black men

White respondents would be more likely to believe actions of police were justified than blacks
