Initial Idea 2 SummaryMy 2nd Initial Idea will be based on Media portrayal of Muslims.

This is to help educate the viewers on how the media can blur the lines when it comes to acts of terrorism and whos mainly blamed for it.

Idea 3 SummaryIdea 3 is about the relationship between the police and the black community. It would be focused on how black communities cant really trust the police due to stereotypes and being racially profiled and treated badly.I would interview members of the black community and the school police officer about how to strengthen the relationship so the black community can essentially trust the police.

Also how theyre treated compared to other members of communities.Relatable right now as there are many things going on in the US and in the UK. Many black people are being killed by police for no reason at all.
