This problem has costs to the individual and society. Individually, this unfair treatment of minorities promotes psychological and legal problems. It also has many costs to society, such as financial loss. Most of this problem relates to the abuse of racial profiling as a scientific tool. Racial profiling should not even exist as far as I am concerned because it strictly promotes labeling among minorities. Just because someone may look different does not mean that they are up to no good. Racial profiling is used on everyone except white people which automatically makes it unfair. The police have developed this tool in such an unfair way that it completely promotes this problem of unfair treatment. This problem will not get any better until
The rules that officers must do to arrest a suspect are designed to protect their physical safety and also to avoid making a legal mistake that can lead to ruining the prosecution 's trial case. During the time of the arrest the cops are to read out the suspects Miranda rights. The Miranda rights were done in the U.S. supreme court ruling Miranda v. Arizona which set the rights to remain silent, and anything that you say can be used against you in a court of law etc
“Black Lives Matter “is a recent example of Black Rhetoric within the media. Dating back to the unfortunate events that took place in Ferguson with the shooting of a young black male named Michael Brown, the even has grown infamously and famously depending on which side you tend to agree with. Countless people have given their input on the situation and not all blacks tend to agree with the movement of “Black Lives Matter”.
Black lives matter movement should also argue, stop black on black crime.There are lots of violence going on today, particularly within our own community.We have young black men killing each other over drugs and other nonsense that may torment our community. Not to mention, the constant reminder of the black on black crime that is plastered on the news daily.It saddens me to know our ancestors endured so much hardship and we turn around and kill one another.Understand know crime is right, however, we contradict our actions with so much black on black violence toward each other. I believe if we have more strong leaders like we once had. Our community would come together. We have seen changes with martin Luther King Jr and Thurgood Marshall.
Black lives matter is a national organization working towards bettering the lives of African Americans. It works toward rebuilding the black liberation movement. Black lives matter movement does not mean any other life is not as important. It's simply justifying that right now in the moment, the lives at stake are black lives.
The plight of African-Americans, in particular, political and social leaders, within the United States, advocating for racial equity and civil rights, is one that has become mired in notions of conflict and divisiveness. Among the African-American community, debates have ensued and viewpoints formulated, as to the what the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement can be attributed best towards, the separationist activists and advocates, such as Malcolm X, Kwame Ture (formerly known as Stokely Carmichael), both of which inspired by Marcus Garvey; or the the integrationist activists and organizations such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). The impacts of these activists, both separationist and integrationist
For so long, African Americans have been subject to sub par treatment by the rest of society. From slavery to the separate but equal movement, African Americans have always been on the receiving end of extreme hate from the so-called “majority”. However, recently, the many injustices that African Americans still face are being revealed. This has come about through the spotlight on African American injustices such as the Michael Brown or Tamir Rice shootings. All of this has led to a rise of a “Black Lives Matter” movement. In order to facilitate this, many popular artists have come out with songs that furthered and strengthen the movement and reveal the injustices that African Americans have faced for decades. With the rise of the Black lives
Black Lives Matter has been the most prevalent movement since 2012. “Black lives matter” has made it a mission to stand against police brutality, and racial inequality. The organization and protest group has been under scrutiny because many people have assumed the wording in the name means Black lives are the only lives that matter. President Obama, dismissed the misleading external opinions and stated the term “Black Lives Matter” does not mean everyone else lives do not matter, but rather police brutality and racial inequality is distinctively plaguing the Black community.
Released in 2014, Ivory Tower is a film that highlights the obscenities and corruption that lie within America’s web of higher education; by focusing on expenses, the benefits that those with the most power in the system reap, and the race for supremacy that colleges are running full speed in, this movie does a great job of dropping a match on the heap of disdain it’s audience had been pouring gasoline on for years – a heap of hundreds of billions of dollars of student debt that is proliferating by the day and manifesting itself in the anxieties of people all over the country.
As former president Barack Obama stated in 2014, “You have men of color in many communities who are more likely to end up in jail or in the criminal justice system, than they are in a good job or college”(Brady). Racism and discrimination are two distinct things that affect men and women of color in America. Racism and discrimination did not end with the traditional thoughts of the Civil Rights Movement; it is still present in everyday lives whether it is subconscious or not. An example of discrimination in today’s Criminal Justice System is the increased difference of how people of color are incarcerated at a higher rate than those of the caucasian race. This can be seen when one looks
Roughly two and a half centuries ago, the americans fought Great Britain for their freedom. America wanted to be free from the restrictions that Britain limited them with and found a separate country where the government would guarantee freedom to its citizens. Soon, America did found their own country and it has become a place that many immigrants come to to seek for freedom. However, not all people have been granted the same amount of freedom. Although America might seem like a land of freedom for everyone, there are many races who are not free from discrimination. A recent movement called Black Lives Matter has sparked from some incidents of police brutality towards black Americans. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is a movement that
On July, 2013, Florida white police shot and killed African Americans young people. However, according to the jury’s decision, the police was acquitted on all charges, and it sparked protests. As a result, it began the movement “black lives matter”. The movement of the purpose
It is impossible to view oppression, such as racism or sexism, in isolation because they are all connected: classism, ableism, and ageism. They are linked by a common origin—economic power and control and by common methods of limiting, controlling, and destroying lives (Pharr, Suzanne, 1998). Pharr believes there is no hierarchy of oppression. Each is terrible and destructive. She says that to eliminate one oppression successfully, a movement has to include work to eliminate them all or else success will always be limited and incomplete.
The Black Lives Matter movement ¬¬has been inspired by previous movements, such as the Civil Rights movement and the Black Panther Party. One of the first victories for the Civil Rights movement was after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white bus rider on December 1, 1955. This was illegal at the time; Parks was arrested and this inspired a year-long bus boycott. Also, the planned march from Selma to Montgomery on March 7, 1965 that resulted in police brutality cause public outrage. The Black Panther Party has always had the portrayal of being violent and anti-white, when they were focused on creating positive change, uniting people, and on helping more than just the black community. Compared to the Black Lives Matter movement,
