  2. Very powerful. The spoken word element combined with the incredible videos (especially the dancer) makes this a very emotional piece. Definitely worth watching

  5. This video is an example of what the TV News media doesn't want to show us... We need more human unity

  6. This is a very affluential video that needs to be shown more often. videos like these help us understand and point out the systematic racism, debauchery, and vice that still plagues our country today. No matter what our race, social status, gender, etc is, we are all equal because we are all human. Racism is not something humans are born with, it is something that is taught. We need to work together to end it. #equalityforall #endracism

  7. This film reveals the effects of the Islamophobia. It shows how Islamic people and non-Islamic people are being treated due to Islamophobia. It shows the hate and fear that people are acting out of, and how badly people have reacted. It also shows the ridiculousness of the 1700% Project and how negative and hurtful that program has been. The film uses a lot of percentages and numbers as its research and proof behind the statements. The film also uses visuals to show the anger and hurt behind the statements. I think that there is definitely still Islamophobia in the Mainstream Media today and that it is rarely addressed and that people don’t stop to question the media and how it effects others.

  8. This film really makes you feel uneasy because of the fast paced editing and the dialog. It's unapologetic and really gets its point across to draw attention to the injustices that Islamophobia can create. I think it does a good job of telling a story in a creative way in order to draw attention to something so negative and hopefully provoke change in someones feelings towards this subject.
