Yet, in 2006, Wiesel joined Oprah Winfrey for a T.V special on a trip back to Auschwitz and again in 2009, with President Obama and Angela Merkle Chancellor of Germany as company.
Racial and ethnicity discrimination in the justice system have been around since the beginning of this country against “Negroid” . Writing this research paper brings me back to the first book I ever read; “The Emmett Till Story;” which should be a reminder how awful our justice system can be. The problem we are having today in America is that Emmett Till’s story is still going on in 2017. The story goes like this per emmetttillmurder.com “While visiting family in Money, Mississippi, 14-year-old Emmett Till, an African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for flirting with a white woman four days earlier.” Now this is we their system have fail, and continued to nose-dive the Negroid around in America.

During an election year, we as Americans are bombard with campaign aids and media coverage for each presidential candidate running for office. Throughout the 90s we regularly saw the abundance of anti-smoking aids, and through high school history class, we’ve seen the posters with Uncle Sam or Rosie the Riveter during the times of the World wars.

Another was the death of a 60-year-old black man named John Dukes, who was killed by whites in revenge for Dukes shooting a white constable. Dukes was hanged and even set on fire by the mob. Because of these events, and many other previous ones, Senator Wagner requested that the federal government do something.

This explains the reason a majority of the crimes the KKK committed were not tried in court or arrested. In conclusion, the KKK terrorized freedmen after the Civil War and were never brought to justice because of government and police officials who were in the klan.

On February 26th, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was senselessly shot and killed on his way home from the local 7/11. Despite the massive media coverage this tragedy attracted, more than two years later similar events continued to happen, and unfortunately, it appears as if nothing has changed.

The graphic remains of his corpse were there to be viewed by his entire community (including his grief-stricken family). Brown 's death would soon act as a catalyst for a movement more powerful than any other.

However, most of the lyrics are complaints relating to Iraq war. In Brazil, Hip-hop Artist Costa helped Federal District’s Committee to create a hip-hop film titled “Don’t Traffic” which is about Human Trafficking.
