Racial profiling is a very important issue that individuals in society face every day. This problem occurs in low income or poverty-stricken areas throughout cities and communities across the nation. Hundreds of anecdotal testimonials allege that law enforcement officials at all levels of government are infringing upon the constitutional rights and civil liberties of racial and ethnic minorities through a practice called “racial profiling” (Ward, 2002). So what is racial profiling? According to the National Institute of Justice, racial profiling by law enforcement is commonly defined as a practice that targets people for suspicion of crime based on their race, ethnicity, religion or national origin (National Institute of Justice, 2013).
People think it isn’t fair for them to have a lot of jobs if they don’t live here. This all leads into the big issues in the criminal justice system and how its racist. Police stops are now a big problem in the U.S. Whether their on foot or car stops African American Males are stopped twice as much as whites. According to the University of Kansas a male of color in Kansas City of the age 25 or younger has a 28% of being stopped by the police.
In the spring of 1991,” In Los Angeles, California, four Los Angeles police officers that had been caught beating an unarmed African-American motorist in an amateur video an acquitted of any wrongdoing in the arrest.” [“1992 Riot in Los Angeles”] We hear and read about police brutality more than we should. Police brutality is a major problem in our country. Many times it is pushed aside or covered up. Sadly we find that a major reason for all this happens, has to do with racism as well.
Of them, 732 were white and 381 were black(and 382 were of another unknown race).” This is a lot of people killed in this, but this shows how its very diverse and just isn’t one race being targeted. In the book Police Brutality, written by Sheila Fitzgerald, Officers are interviewed and are asked on their opinion on racial profiling. Their responses were, “ If you're stopped, they said, it’s because you fit a description or you’ve done something to raise an officer’s suspicion, such as hitch up your waistband in a way that suggests a hidden gun”(Fitzgerald 66). Officers only act on suspicion and not race.
Many people may associate people of middle eastern descent as radical Muslims, but that is often a false idea as are most other crime related stereotypes given to the different races. Police brutality is usually targeted at African Americans because of the past notion that African American people are violent by nature, but that idea had since faded, we hoped. No, that has not faded even a little bit. In 2016 alone “233 African-Americans shot and killed by police”(Nodjimbadem). Eric Garner is a Black man who was killed by the a policeman who placed him in an unnecessary chokehold, a chokehold that would end up with fatal results.
Throughout African American history , the police force has been accountable for numerous detrimental deaths in the African American community due to racial discrimination. In 1960s, African American protesters were targeted by the police force because of the their desire to be be deemed as equal. Likewise, in today’s society African Americans are still experiencing active racial discrimination and injustices from the police force. African Americans have expressed their level of frustration with the inhumane actions of the police force.

Alex Viamari Professor: Marcus Nicolas ENC1102 T/R 9 October 2014 Issue Analysis Paper Following our nation’s reconstruction, racist sentiments continued to occur and White on Black violence was prevalent throughout American society. Racism was still alive with the oppression of African Americans through the Jim Crowe laws. Deprived of their civil and human rights, Blacks were reduced to a status of second-class citizenship. A tense atmosphere of racial hatred, ignorance and fear bred lawless mass violence, murder and lynching.
Some are African American and some are Caucasian and much more different races also cops are using race to persecute that is why people are treated differently. According to Racial Profiling, “Occurs every day, in cities and town across the country, when law enforcement and private security target people of color for humiliating and often frightening detentions, interrogations and searches without evidence of criminal activity and based on perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion.” (“Racial Profiling” para.1) This demonstrated that people target people of color everyday. People misjudge them and just assume that African Americans are the bad side or person in any situation.
People want to segregate and gather in streets, and protest with violence and express their hatred by breaking laws in the streets. It makes me sick and upset that it leads to death of people over a case that could have been handled more appropriately by the officers and the individual that was shot to death. In this month after the killing of another black male the last few days, this country witnessed the recorded murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police, the latest victims in this country’s failed policing system.

Maansi Dasari Mr. Morris AP English 3 12 January 2017 The Electoral College: The last remnant of slavery Amidst the chaos of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, emerges a cacophony of voices screaming for Electoral College reform. Many are angered by the results, others are confused: how can one candidate receive nearly three million more votes than the other and still lose the election? The Electoral College has been the United States’ method for electing a president since the Constitution was ratified, and this is far from the first time that it has been criticized.
My Thoughts on Hillary Clinton When considering Hillary Clinton for presidential candidacy, I believe that the scandals swirling around her detract from her eligibility to be elected to the highest office in the land. Her experience isn’t enough for her to be a worthy president, we need to trust in the person who takes that place and Hillary Clinton is far from trustworthy. Although Before I can get into the topic of this paper its best to kick it off with a brief history of the woman herself.
Thesis: Donald Trump if elected would make a terrible Republican candidate for president. Sub ¶- Authoritarianism If economic inequality is a problem, loss of traditional values is a fear, and the Hispanic vote is crucial, what explains the political rise of a twice-divorced, three times married, New York real estate man whose best-known phrase was, "You 're fired “and now makes offensive comments about Mexicans and immigrants? In a study at the University of Massachusetts, sampling of 1,800 that education, income, gender, age, ideology and religiosity had no significant bearing on a Republican voter’s preferred as a candidate.
In history I find Andrew Jackson was a interesting character because I do not know why he is on the $20 bill. His ego makes him more a tough contender in history since no one tends to have that authoritarian feeling. The entire essay I kept
