We have decided to focus on the societal issue of the social pressures of the entertainment industry. However, we have focused more specifically on violence, police brutality, black-on-black crime, and the "Get rich quick" culture. There are a variety  of outlets through which people of color are often subjected to social pressure, by the influences of the entertainment industry.
