People now should accept and educated themselves about the idea that everyone on this planet is equal to them. Legal actions should be taken on people who are racist towards racial group other than theirs to learn their lesson and never repeat this. It would take more than giving equality and being respectful to racism victims to bring them back from the psychological effects caused by racism and discrimination. Racism could be reduced but will never be eliminated because people will never truly accept the idea that they are all equal, some people will always view themselves to be better than
Harlan did not understand why white people decided to treat colored people as beneath them. The treatment of colored people, in this aspect, clearly had conflicts with the thirteenth amendment, yet the majority was ignoring what the thirteenth amendment had stated. What Harlan said was that the thirteenth amendment was not only to banish the existence of enslavement for everybody, but to give everybody no matter what color the freedom to move about equally. Due to being confined on where they can go and what they can do, affects the thirteenth amendment. Also due to being treated as such, due to the color of their skin, affects the fourteenth amendment by not abiding to their treatment of equality.
Racial profiling occurs more than most people think and goes on without any consequences behind it. This happens because some people do not believe that anything can be done about it. This can lead to a huge problem, because a number of people will not just profile individuals because of their race or ethnicity, but will also become racist and dangerous. Martin Luther King Jr. was a powerful man that believed that we can all be equal no matter the pigment of our skin. Martin Luther King Jr. stated in his “I have a dream” speech, "I have a dream that one day my four little children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character".
In reaction to the movement “Black Lives Matter” there was a new movement created called “All Lives Matter”. It is true statement that all lives matter because this demonstrates that every single one of us counts. However, when the phrase “All Lives Matter” is used it’s making a generalization, causing the audience to not focus and forget the fact that black lives are the ones who are exposed to injustices almost in a daily basic. It is very important that the world understands why at this moment all lives don’t matter, this can be supported by the fact that most of the racial comments, racism, hate, and negative characteristics are mostly being targeted to those who are
Racism is a good example of this. One side believes that their own race is better than another person’s or sees other races as inferior. Another side believes that all races should be treated equal because skin tone should not determine how people treat one another. Some do not even acknowledge that racism is a problem at all. All these conflicting views make it hard to come to a solution on how to fix the problem.
In considering this extract, it is obvious that The Ku Klux Klan firmly believed that autocracy was to be exclusive to their race and that other races were lesser and therefore should revere them. Amidst these perspectives it is a lengthy process in order to gain social change and progress to a more equal environment. Although social change has occurred, there are still a percentage of the American population that partakes in these views. It conceives it increasingly more difficult to accomplish unabridged views within their society on the concern of racial
However, many people are unaware of the dark history of race and think nothing of it. For this very reason, I believe that it is highly important to firstly recognize the flaws in basing a society off race and then work on removing the classification of people by race to combat the existing racism throughout the world. A person should not be judged and assessed merely based off their skin color or culture, but rather by their actions and intentions. So, to group a wide variety of cultures into one category would be an unjust generalization made by social construct. For instance, African Americans are categorized by “black” in order to legitimize their exploitation as an apparently inferior race just because of skin color.
However our neighborhood was not just made up of hispanics but rather very diverse. Now racial profiling is rather humerous for me due to the fact that more times than not, I am racially profiled based off of my appearance and the way someone perceives me. My parents have taught me to discount the judgement because as they say I know who I am and everything else shouldn 't matter. Anyhow, my personal experience should come to show that there is no way you can judge someone based entirely their appearance not just in racial matters because chances are you will just show the rest of the world how naive you can be. Living in a country so diverse which means we all don’t look the same.
Solutions Racism has affected the world for so long. Although I have talked racism concerning specially white and black. And most people assume that racism only deals with color of skin but it goes way beyond that. Racism is the belief that one person is better than another person for any reason at all whether it’s the color of skin, nationality, mental ability or sex. No one should be degraded or discriminated against for these
I hate knowing that cultural appropriation is still occurring. The fact that white people are able to take the African American’s originality without going through the same negative reaction as black people is unfair, and this goes for all the “trends” they decide to copy. White people are privileged. They take aspects of the African American culture, yet they do not receive the harsh feedback that African Americans would get when they do the same thing. I believe that white people should stop using the excuse that it’s “just a hairstyle” or “just a trend” and realize that African American people wear what they wear for a reason.
I 'm also motivated as I want to be in control of my life. With my degree I will have the security I need to be competitive in the marketplace. My purpose My main purpose in seeking my college degree is to put myself in a better position to take care of myself and my son. The workforce is changing, outsourcing is becoming normal in many entry level
One of the main issues is that people believe that the movement hates white people and that they are anti-police. They go on to explain that they do not hate white people, they hate white supremacy. White supremacy, in short, is “suggesting that in order for white lives to matter, black lives cannot” (“11 Major Misconceptions About the Black Lives Matter Movement”). They want to explain that the Black Lives Matter movement is to “affirm the value of black life in practical and pragmatic ways” (“11 Major Misconceptions About the Black Lives Matter Movement”). Their examples of doing so are, fighting inequality and gentrification which forces people out of their homes and communities that they have been in generation after generation.
People can’t decide what race or color they want to be. We should and have to respect every nation and their colors. What if it was the other way around and light colored skin people weren’t accepted? Wouldn’t they fight for their rights too? We should all stand up and fight for what is right.
It is true that racism and prejudice is neither morally or logically correct, but unless people are able to competently contest those views without resorting to the destruction of other opinions and thought, those issues will continue to prevail. The famous treatise against bigotry, To Kill a Mockingbird, has been criticized and banned for its use of racial slurs, despite accurately portraying the America of that time. Forgetting our past, no matter how shameful, only ensures that it will be repeated – books help us not to forget. How can we improve as a society if we do not even allow ourselves to remember the mistakes of previous generations? Harriet Beecher Stowe 's Uncle Tom 's Cabin created outrage in the South due to its "anti-slavery" ideas, resulting in it being banned.
