I need help with these two questions 1st question, Ferguson, MO and Police Mili

I need help with these two questions 1st question, Ferguson, MO and Police Militarization: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (WATCH) For 10 points extra credit, please watch the following video on police militarization of marginalized communities. In 2 full pages, please answer the following for full credit:
1) Summarize the video. What were Oliver’s arguments and evidence? Were they convincing? Half a page 2) How does this add to Dr. Anderson’s lecture? Half a page
3) Why were people made about the video of Michael Brown stealing a cigar from a convenient store before? When this video released, what is being implied? Half a page
4) People say that more Black and Brown officers are needed on the police force. Do you think that will help? Why or why not? Half a page.
2nd question, WHITE RAGE REFLECTION In a two page (size 12 double spaced) reflection, answer the following questions: In her lecture “White Rage”, Carol Anderson argues that White Rage is legislation passed to disenfranchise Black and Brown voters. She calls this the “kindling” of fire embers before these communities rise up as they did in Ferguson, MO in 2014. How does she say that White Rage led to the death of Michael Brown? Think about his schooling, and how the community treated it’s Black citizens in policing, representation, etc. Think back to the “fixed fallacy of racism.” How does what Dr. Anderson argue happened in Florida and Texas in regards to voting connect to Black codes such as the Grandfather clause, or literacy tests we discussed earlier this semester, which also kept Black American men from voting.
Do you agree with the assessment that disenfranchisement in voting today is directly connected to disenfranchisement during Jim Crow? If yes, why, if not, why not? (A real reflection) What did you make of the events that occurred after the murder of George Floyd in May 2020? What about in our own community in La Mesa, California? How did you hear others speak about these events]
please I need both of the questions to be 2 pages long
1000 words for both questions

Numerous projects have emerged across the Humanities (Ethnic Studies, English, History, Anthropology, Philosophy, and other related fields that study the forces at work in being human) that have engaged the public in largely untold stories of injustice in hopes of challenging common mythologies and illuminating the need for change. Rather than limiting these efforts to the walls of college and university classrooms and research spaces, these projects see the communities around them as important spaces to investigate, build tools and resources for the general public to explore pursuit of their own curiosity or in efforts to push for social change, and encourage public participation in the projects’ research and interpretation processes. For this final assignment of the semester, you will take a deep look at one of these projects, describe its purposes and methods, engage the project’s public interfaces and consider their importance, and draw connections between the project and the other materials and themes we have touched on in class.
To do this, you will choose one of the following two projects and answer the associated prompts. This is a final assignment, so your answers should be substantial and thoughtful! Compile your answers in a document (preferably Word).

If so, what kind of change and how?
How is the project a work of public humanities? What are some of the ways the project engages the public? Does it communicate an alternative narrative and/or encourage public participation? If so, how? How might public interaction change the nature of a project like this, and why might it be important?
Does this project reflect or connect to any of the materials or themes of this past semester? If so, how? Make at least 3 connections.
