eventually murdered. The government has put minimal effort in investigating her case. There has been 1200 missing or murdered aboriginal woman since 1980. This is a very large amount. We are not investing nearly enough money in finding answers. These are innocent lives being taken and instead of investing time and money to find an answer we are instead hiding the issue. The documentary explored how we as a society we have become desensitized to these women going missing. We see them as another number or another story and we are not understanding the severity of the issue. The gouvernement is choosing to give false promises and continuing to do nothing instead of taking a stance. I was so engaged in this documentary and it really hit home. I was imagining these situations to happen in my family and cannot imagine the frustration. The same gouvernement that we need to trust and the judicial system is doing nothing for the indigenous people and the lives they are loosing and the many people that are still missing today. “Not white enough, nor black enough”. This is a phrase that many mixed people hear on

a daily basis. It is extremely saddening to hear situations like these are still happening in our day to day lives. Growing up with a mixed identity is a challenge of its own. Getting harassed and bullied for it along the way is extremely insensitive and we need to teach others that this behaviour is unacceptable. Another disheartening statistic and situation to see is 100% of african american football players surveyed have experienced racial profiling. I could not imagine what this does to a person's psyche. These statistics and news articles remind us of the issue and how prevalent they continue to be today. We often think of racism, especially against black people to be a concern of the past, especially considering the abolishment of slavery, but evidently it continues to be a problem that we must accept and address. Something more local and again demonstrates the disrespect that we show towards the indigenous people is the situation that happened at a hockey game in Quebec. A Quebec City First Nations hockey team subjected to racist taunts and slurs. They were called savages by both players and people watching the game.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
