This video was about a Caterpillar and a snail who are friends. They were going to a party together, but the way they had to go was under a fence. The Caterpillar got under the fence without a problem, but the snail on the other hand, had a problem getting under the fence. The snails Shell could not get under the fence, the snail asked the Caterpillar if he could lift the fence a little so he could try and get under the fence to get to the party. The Caterpillar got upset because the snail couldn’t get under the fence like he could. The snail asked to go another way but the caterpillar got upset and said “you don’t even know what it’s like to be a caterpillar, because finding shoes is a complete nightmare”. That is because we all have our own struggles because we are own people, everyone is different. “ I don’t know what it’s like to be you and you don’t know what it’s like to be me.” (Sometimes you’re a caterpillar).

“Racism causes harm to those who are on the receiving end. It hurts individuals, communities and our society at large.” People that are harassing other people because of their race don’t realize how much it bothers them because the harassers have most likely never been harassed.So the people harassing others doesn’t know the feelings the person getting harassed get like sadness, anger, anxiety, and even depression.

This is a picture but also explains what is happening. It shows that if someone is harassing someone of another race/religion that you could step in if you feel comfortable and sit next to them and start up a conversation so that the harasser will leave. Build a safe space “Keep eye contact with them and don’t acknowledge the attackers presence. The absence of response from you two will push them to leave the area shortly.” Helping people in those situations will make them feel more comfortable and the attacker notice maybe that that person is just like him.

This hate map shows “All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” This list was creating by using hate groups publications and websites. Groups more in the middle of the states represent statewide groups. “Hate group activities can include criminal acts, marches, rallies, speeches, meetings, leafleting or publishing.” This map shows states that are hateful against other races and places that don’t have a problem with them. Hate Map was published by Southern Poverty Law Center, also known as SPLC. Again, there was not an author or published date.
This source shares advice on how to be a good ally and how to stand up for someone who is being bullied.“1: Support targets, whether you know them or not” Show you care by asking if they are okay, or you can just let them know you are there for them. “2: Don’t participate” This doesn't require you to do anything, just don't do certain things like laughing or cheering on bad behavior. “3: Tell aggressors to stop” Stand up for someone and tell the aggressor its not right what they are doing. “4: inform a trusted adult” Sometimes standing up against a bully is hard so you might need extra help, so tell someone you trust to help shut it down. “5: Get to know people instead of judging them.” appreciate people for who they are, don't judge them based on their appearances. “6: be an ally online” Even though you can’t see someone's face online, doesn’t mean their feelings won’t get hurt. These steps are really helpful for people to know how to help others that might be in this situation and knowing that they can tell an adult they trust so they can help stop the bullying.

Dolly Chugh talked about sending emails to real professors in real University's. Dolly shared with us “We sent them an email that looked like it came from a real person asking for a meeting to learn more about the PHD program in that university.” But what they did is they used actual names used in that study to put on the email. The name sounded either male or female and sounded like white, black, Chinese, Hispanic, or Indian. Dolly gave shared their statistics of the emails, “what we found was if you were a white male, you were far more likely to receive a response back than if you were in all those other categories put together.” This could be racism or it could just be the professors are busy and they let their subconscious chose a name, which is where their bias comes into play. “Research shows that out racial bias’s are often about who we help, then who we don’t.” this is because we help people that are more like us. This source gives evidence that we chose names that sound or look more like us because we do often want to help people that are more like us than those who are not.

Joy DeGruy talks about her trip to the grocery store with her sister-in-law who is half white and half black, but looks white with blue eyes and Joy is black. They went to the store together once, and they were in line waiting to pay, Joy’s sister, Kathy, was in front of her about to write up a check for the cashier and the cashier was making up small talk with, “hey how you doing it's a nice day today,” and so on. So Kathy steps off to the side to wait for Joy to pay. Joy steps up and the cashier didn’t make any small talk with her, she also writes up a check and the cashier asks to see two forms of ID. The cashier pulls up the bad check book as Joy gaver her her ID’s, so at that point the white elder women behind her was mad at the cashier and so was Kathy. Kathy steps in and says “Excuse me, why are you doing this?” the cashier asked “what do you mean?” Kathy was furious that the cashier was doing all of this and so she asked again “why are you doing that?” the cahsier said “it is our policy”. Kathy was talking with the caisher and mentioned that she didn’t do any of thqat with her and the cashier made up that Kathy had been here before, even though that was true Joy had lived here for more than four years, Kathy has lived here for about 3 months. The manager came over and asked if there was a problem and Kathy told him everything and she even pointed out how she was half black and that this was injustice and extremely unfair.
