“Who will take responsibility for raising the next generation?” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The Outspoken Narrative is a docuseries that I am creating with a group of friends. This series aims to have conversations about important issues taking place across the world. Each episode we tackle a different issue. We tell the story through the facts, and through the first-hand experiences of people on the ground. This is the outspoken narrative
Our first episode delves right into the BLM movement.
In this episode, we list the goals of the protests and briefly give an overview of what they are. We also go on to list some of the accomplishments of the protests.
Later into the episode, we discuss the media perception of the protests. A large portion of the media coverage on the protests has been on the negative aspects, such as the looting and rioting. While these are issues that should be reported, the facts show that the violent protestors make up a small minority of all the protestors working to make positive change.
This kind of coverage, which focuses on the negative impacts, leads to the generalization of protesters. It also causes further division and uneasiness among the population (fear-mongering). It is important that the movement is not generalized by news outlets in order to gain views and clicks.
