A new awareness of individual bigotry and privilege is a significant beginning. Be that as it may, fundamental discrimination is woven into each political and institutional structure, and oblivious biases impact the entirety of our associations. Being “against racism” isn’t sufficient; we should effectively attempt to end prejudice. Tending to interpersonal racism in our social circles is significant. Yet, more critically, we need to destroy the bigotry installed in organizational policies to guarantee that foundational power is in effect equitably shared.
We are witnessing changes. Some are emblematic changes, similar to sculptures brought down, and mascots retired. While these reflect evolving mentalities, they actually leave hazardous frameworks unblemished. Significantly numerous associations’ leadership teams are changing in composition, and, most effectively of all, financial plans inside the criminal justice framework are being reevaluated and rebuilt with an objective of foundational change.
These are desperately required progressions, and they infrequently occur quickly. Anna Moore, an emerging actor, singer, and incredible entrepreneur believes that the media and entertainment industry has a big say in this regard. “If the entertainment industry strives to bring awareness about the issues of discrimination, then it has the power to bring racism to an absolute end by transforming attitudes,” Anna says. Award-Winning Actress and New York University Tisch Drama Alum based in LA, NYC, and Atlanta, Moore has worked in many feature films, including her upcoming feature “I’m Charlie Walker” (opposite Mike Colter & Dylan Baker) that is focused on highlighting the racism faced by Black Entrepreneurs in America. Later this year, Anna will be dropping her first single, “Soul ft. SriKala,” which will also be featured in her upcoming film, “I’m Charlie Walker.”
To combat racism, Moore has taken a few initiatives personally, that include utilizing web-based social media for good. “I no longer unfriend racist individuals. All things being equal, I now openly challenge the biased suppositions they express and do it consistently, on the grounds that changing minds requires some serious energy, and your online engagement could teach many quiet observers. Remember that conscious individuals can, and ought to, respond emotionally to bigotry – on the grounds that it’s hurting our society as a whole. However, it is always important to hold your temper within proper limits, on the grounds that awful discourse around racism expands the social aftermath and harm for people of color. Aim to connect persistently, verifiably, and consciously, and utilize your online media to urge your companions to partake in solid activities that promote equity,” Anna says.
This is an electrifying time in world history, and the previous year 2020, will always be remembered and concentrated as a period of gigantic change and positive rebellion. “We, as a whole, have the chance to participate in this flood against the injustice of racism and definitively change the system around us. The social equality movement is happening today. Take an interest in it: with your body. With your dollars. With your activities. It is our responsibility as humans to stand up against it,” says Anna Moore.
While numerous individuals get familiar with an exceptionally digitalized daily standard, different types of racism expand in online spaces. They frequently come to fruition in disinformation and hate speech focusing on diverse populace groups. The main drivers are unpredictable. Though, the absence of basic critical thinking data, media content, and intentional utilization of technology as a key factor is apparent.
Anna Moore further reveals that she became even more aware of white privileged and the deep-rooted racism in American society while working on the feature file ‘”I’m Charlie Walker,” opposite Mike Colter & Dylan Baker. “I’m Charlie Walker is based on the book of the same name by Charlie Walker. The film recounts racial discrimination that Black Entrepreneur Charlie Walker was vulnerable to while attempting to clean up Stinson Beach in Marin County, California after the 1971 San Francisco Bay oil spill threatened the beach town and much of the San Francisco Bay area coastline. Starring Mike Colter and Dylan Baker, the film was written and directed by Patrick Gilles. Truly, this project is dear to my heart because it will raise even more awareness about successful Black stores in the entertainment industry,” she concludes.
