Updated Inquiry Proposal

My initial inquiry research proposal was on the topic of race inequality in justice. I had learned and reviewed many cases in the past that was about race inequality. I have thought of my proposal topic as “Why is there race inequality under justice, when justice is supposed to mean rightfulness or lawfulness?” and “What is the effect of race inequality in justice placed upon the victims?”

I had read on the US Department of Justice webpage about equality. In their blog, it stated how everyone is equal under the law and shall have equal access to careers and education.  There are many blogs that explains about equality of the people, it may be very broad but it is very easy to understand.

Racial equality matters to the public health because it brings an impact to every individual. Race still matters to this day because it occurs in our daily life. In this article it states and explains how race still matters and how the public health brings an impact to race equality.

There were many cases that involves racial inequality, and one of the cases that I’ve looked into is Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger in 2003. In this case it shows what happened that caused the open and the final sentencing.

The Britannica Online Encyclopedia has many articles listed that involves human race inequality. The articles gave me more information about how the human race was in the past and why had caused the inequality. It describes in details what has been done to different human races.

Even though he is a comedian and African American himself, but I don’t believe it is any laughing matter when creating racist remarks about human races.

I had not decided the platform or design for the inquiry project at this moment, but I know that I’ll be using a lot of past cases that been brought to court involving race inequality.

‘Personal Dynamic Media’ Nugget

Every message is, in one sense or another, a simulation of some idea. It may be representational or abstract. The essence of a medium is very much dependent on the way messages are embedded, changed, and viewed. Although digital computers were originally designed to do arithmetic computation, the ability to simulate the details of any descriptive model means that the computer, viewed as a medium itself, can be all other media if the embedding and viewing methods are sufficiently well provided. Moreover, this new “meta medium” is active—it can respond to queries and experiments—so that the messages may involve the learner in a two-way conversation. This property has never been available before except through the medium of an individual teacher. We think the implications are vast and compelling.

Every time when a message is given by a person or just stated in a book or internet, it is interpreted differently by whoever was exposed to it. In group assignments when the teacher give students a statement to interpret on, each student would have a different view or opinion of what the statement means. People may interpret any messages or statements differently, but they aren’t wrong.

interpretation

 

Although people may have different interpretations, they provide themselves with many choices to work with in group assignments. As people with different interpretations of a message get together, they are teaching each other that it can mean something else, which allows each other to think outside the box.
