The anthropologists Bonilla and Rosa suggest that “social media platforms have become powerful sites for documenting and challenging episodes of police brutality and the misrepresentation of racialized bodies in mainstream media.” Discuss this suggestion in close reference to their article. Illustrate your point(s) with more recent examples of protests against racially-tinged police brutality in the United States and/or Canada. Your discussion should include consideration of ethnographic method (i.e., the way we study culture, language, and society in real-life situations).
