The reactions in this video are 100% fake. The video speaks for itself as what it was trying to get across. The white man could have been any ethnicity to spread the same message. With all that's going on in the world. Hope this changes the way you think for even a brief moment in time. :)


I originally came up with this concept following the early death of Trayvon Martin. Not knowing what I was trying to get across or say, I chose to hold off. Soon after, Eric Garner’s life was taken from him pre maturely. A new wave of emotion flourished in to speak up and get a message across. Still not knowing exactly how to execute the concept, I chose to hold off. And then like history has shown us before, Mike Brown and Tamir Rice were victims of the system. I sat with this video for weeks. Thinking tirelessly about how to portray what everyone was thinking. Two failed attempts went into the making of this “message.” Even with this one, it was fully edited and ready when I chose not to upload because something was missing. After seeking guidance and asking some friends and family for their advice, this is the final product I ended up with. Now, I’m not going to flat out say what I am trying to say with the video because I want to keep it open to your own interpretation. I feel like we all perceive these tragedies in our own way, so it’s not for me to tell you HOW to think, but rather would offer you an insightful look on maybe CHANGING the way you THINK you SEE things based on how WE and the MEDIA PERCEIVE them. That’s as much as I will say. Shortly after this video I will know if I horribly failed or did justice to the progression of the message. Only time will tell.
