Here‘s a video that calls out the obvious differences in describing white riots and black protests. Playing the audio commenting on the protest in Baltimore over footage of white college students “having a bit too much fun” is a great example of turning the media against itself to prove a point. I found this really effective and am looking forward to seeing some of the class projects taking similar approaches to “media and social change.”

PS – Link should now work!
