Topic/Title: Statistics and data used to incriminate/judge Black people and other people of color.
1) How is data used to incriminate POC?
2) Does this data and statistics take in account a person’s delinquency when judging or incriminating that person?
3) How does the media depict data and statistics in regard to each race?
Final Draft Proposal:
My research proposal will be based on how data and statistics impact the portrayal of black and POCs and the incrimination/judging of these people. I always believed that our prison system was unfair and there are multiple example of this unjust and unfair treatment of black and POCs in that system, such as Cynthia Brown and Nathaniel Woods.
Things I will be using:
•Conviction statistics between black/POC and white people accused/charged with the same crime.
•Documentaries/Articles that can help me answer my threes question.
