This report is prepared to focus on racial equality. In many ways, the people have been mistreated based on their racial difference in many countries. This discrimination and mistreatment hamper the basic growth and happy life of the individual. The focus of this report is to develop innovative ideas and concepts for promoting equality so that every individual can be treated based on their capability not based on demographic characteristics. Brief analysis The report reflects on the racial equality of individuals living all over the world. It and a management plan have been prepared for preparing the report. According to the time management plan, there are different activities like questionnaire preparation, data collection, data analysis, secondary research of different movements, history of leaders and different articles prepared on racial equality. Following the time management plan, a mind map on equality has been developed containing basic concepts connected to racial equality. Then a mood board is presented for providing insight about basic understanding of equality and racial equality. Different ideas for promoting racial equality are provided followed by a presentation board. The overall report will help to understand the concept of equality as well as the concept of racial equality that have a huge influence over the world.

All the work has been performed following a daily routine that helps in completing the project in time. Mind map on equality Mind Map contains the basic concepts that are related to racial equality. There are basically 4 types of discrimination like direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment and victimization. There are several practices that are available in the society word racism is practised. It can be seen that the people are being profiled according to their race, there is a huge disparity among people of minority and majority, most of the people get discriminated in their job, get inequal payment. The consequence sometimes reached to loss of job and property. The unequal behaviour because of racism also cause several impacts on the human, education system and also in a broader view in the society. There are many remarkable incidents that occur to stand against racism. History also informs that many people have a stand against racism and faced lots of suffering. The inspiration for choosing this topic came from the latest movement of Black Lives Matter. It inspired me a lot to study and learn more about racial equality and its importance. Different remarkable personalities and historical movements also influence a lot to work regarding racial equality. Mood board on racial equality Equality is the idea of the fairness of behaviour, attitude and facilities toward every individual regardless of their age, skin colour, sex, ethnicity and religion. But there is a slight difference between being treated equally or being treated fairly. Inclusiveness is very very important for promoting equality. Because it allows an individual to be accepted along with all his unchangeable features (race, gender) and good characteristics. Racial equality is the situation where every individual of every race, nation and ethnicity are being treated fairly similar to the other individuals. The ratio inequality is being seen in a wide range of social and economic issues that are not questioned by the people who are not victims. Among the people who are discriminated against because of racism are being victims of poverty, poor education, residential segregation and so on. This situation is mainly found in the countries and regions where there is a presence of ethnic minorities.

From the questionnaire, it can be found that the basic understanding regarding racial equality is still not too clear to most people. Very few people have attended and try to educate themselves regarding racial equality. When they have been asked if they have been treated discriminated live because of their race most of the people have replied with a no and it is also seen that in this institution no student has directly seen any discriminatory behaviour because of Race towards other students. This is a good sign. But the importance of understanding racial equality is addressed by most of the students. Also, in answering the question regarding including racial equality in their academic curriculum, most of the students has responded as strongly agreed. Racial equality (Secondary research) The society of America always has been well known because of their profound economic and demographic changes. It is expected that it will be a majority-minority nation by the year 2043 (Noguera, 2017). In the last few years, there is seen very fast growth in the inequality of race and economics. The equality act 2010 indicates that nobody will be discriminated against because of their race. According to this act, the race is indicated as skin colour, nationality and citizenship. If the ethnic and national origin of an individual is not the same as the current citizenship will also be treated fairly according to this act (Grewal, 1988). According to this act, there are four types of discrimination. Discrimination is when someone treats an individual worse than the other person presents in that situation. Indirect discrimination happens when organisational policy or practice disadvantages a racial group present there. The other two types are harassment and victimisation. Harassment is direct humiliation or offending. And victimization happens when someone is treated badly because of complaining in accordance with the equality act for himself or for someone else (Grewal, 1988). These rules and regulations are provided to stop racial discrimination and promote racial equality in society. People have been fighting for racial equality for a very long time ago. During the 1950s and 1960s, the civil rights movement took place for or gaining equal right for black people under the law of the United States (History.com, 2009). This movement had removed slavery but it could not establish race equality for black people. For marginalising the black people and keep them separated from white people, the establishment of Jim crow law happened. Under this law, black people are openly discriminated against for not getting access to the same facilities as white people (Constitutional rights foundation, 2021). The black people also faced limited voting rights in America. The movement has proven to be very precious and empowering for black Americans. During the time the efforts of the Civil right activist and protestors against racial equality have put an end to segregation, separation and discriminatory voting and employment practices. There is a history of many people who have pout hard and fast to establish gender equality all over the world. Nelson Mandela had worked for establishing black rights for a long time. Because of speaking for racial discrimination, he has been put into prison for years. In his life, he has made countless speeches on racism where he encourages that for protecting human dignity and eradicating racism all people should fight until victory is achieved (Dixon and Williams, 2013). Martin Luther King was a man of unshakable faith. He had tirelessly found for establishment of racial equality of humans. His leadership in the Montgomery bus boycott ignited the Civil rights movement. Another remarkable personality who was actively involved in the Civil rights movement was rosa parks. That person refused to follow the segregation law or in the Montgomery Alabama bus. Her action influences the boycott of the Montgomery bus at the time that ultimately influenced the movement of civil rights (10 black leaders who paved the way for racial equality, 2015). Idea generation The movement of black live matters that happened in 2020 has inspired many people to think about racial equality from the start. But racial equality is not a matter that can be established overnight. But different steps can be taken to further promote racial equality in society. 1. Compulsory subject: From the research, it can be found that the racial inequality in the educational institution has resulted in severe damage to the victim directly but the organisation is also being affected because of losing talents. For changing the situation focusing on the route is very important. For teaching every individual the importance of racial equality, this concept should be e a compulsory educational topic for all the students of all study groups. Just like languages, ethics should be another basic subject. 2. Teaching from elementary school: The implementation of studying racial equality should be started from the elementary school so that the kids grow with a mental acceptance of how individuals should be treated. 3. Unlearn and relearn: The concept of unlearning and relearn should be introduced to society. It is not necessary that a practice that has been followed for a long time must be accepted in future. Understanding this is very important for the older generation because it is very difficult to change a perception. The acceptance of good practice should be normalised in society. 4. Entertainment media: The media can help a lot in promoting the equality of Race. Training programs and webinars are helpful but teaching people in a creative way can impact much more intensely than formal trading. Movies and series can be very much helpful in this respect. Now most of the young generation all over the world are very much fond of spending leisure time by watching series and movies, so creative and entertaining content for promoting racial equality through an emotional story can impact much on the Mind of the young generation. Drawing techniques For preparing the project three Different techniques have been learnt to improve the accuracy of drawing. 1. The grid technique: This technique helps to break down the object into lots of square pieces that make it easier to draw accurately. Because of simplifying the subject into small squares, drawing the lines shapes and values become much easier. But for having a perfect picture the Great lines must be drawn very lightly so that it will not become hard on the paper surface. 2. Sighting /measuring technique: Following this technique an individual need to use a tool to measure the subject in order to improve the accuracy of the drawing. Any tool can be used to measure a particular object. Simply measuring the object by using the palm of the hand can also be much effective in understanding the size and shape of the object. 3. Linear Perspective: This system is also known as the line drawing technique. It is helpful in drawing any type of object, especially architectural elements. There are two types of perspective in the linear perspective drawing. In the case of drawing flag view, a one-point perspective is used. But in terms of creating a larger vertical object two-point perspective is used. Presentation Board Evaluation The problem of racial inequality has been existing in society for a long time. It is not possible to educate this issue on all the terms. Many researchers and leaders have worked for finding out how this problem can be eradicated. The issue is still available in society and the impact is already seen in the movement of black life matters. This paper has been prepared by doing both primary and secondary research. For primary research peer-group, questionnaire methods have been followed to collect primary data from the individual studying in the Institution. The secondary research has been performed by reading and analysing different articles, news reports and the life story of different leaders who have worked for racial equality. Like any other research, this report paper also has some limitations, so it can be considered as a starting journey towards racial equality. This paper contains a lot of information regarding racial equality but further improvement is possible. Different methods can be followed for primary research like doing a survey from places to places where the different protests took place. More academic journals can be studied for getting more information and authentic information regarding the promotion and movements against racial equality. This paper is organised using a time management plan, data Collection questionnaire, secondary research, mind Map, mood board, idea conceptualisation, drawing techniques and presentation board, that will help in understanding the basic concept of racial equality.
