Black Lives Matter only focuses only on African Americans and their lives. On the other hand All Lives Matter focuses on all races, and gives every individual their importance instead of continuous segregation. BLM is seen as reverse racism, as if to disregard the white race. As shown in pie charts, the majority of people that have a problem with BLM are white. Around 60 percent of white respondents were either neutral, or strongly opposed BLM.
For example, in case of a legal dispute, the White is more likely to emerge victorious no matter how unjust and oppressing he could be. I agree with Harris, as the laws affirm self-determination and self-liberty for people, however, those rights were not granted equally. The Whites benefited from them in every way, leaving the Blacks unprotected. Even after the emergence of the US constitution, rights were not granted equally. I believe that it is quite hypocritical from the US to possess a constitution, which is addressed to everyone, but not applied to everyone.
Racial Tension in Michael Brown 's case On August 9, 2014, eighteen-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting caused protests and has drawn the world’s attention because Michael Brown was an unarmed black man while Darren Wilson is a white police officer. People believe Michael Brown’s shooting involves a racial tension between blacks and whites since Brown was unarmed and surrendered. In Ferguson, the majority of people are African Americans, and the majority of police officers are white. On the night of the shooting incident, Brown was walking home and confronted by Wilson because Wilson thought Brown was suspicious.
This is the big question of all to me about segregation, if segregation stops then how will the country be. Also how would others react to this conflict not just in the United States but out of the whole world with having segregation.”Sports today does not have many problems with racism but back in the past there were a lot and it was terrible on how they treated african-americans that knew how to play.” (Monika Stodolska, Kimberly Shinew, Myron Floyd, and Gordon Walker)This statement disturbs me when I read it because our African Americans could not play sports that they are good at jus because of their
Racism is all around the world, and in today’s society, it is modernized and acknowledged as White Privilege. White Privilege is the act of benefiting people identified as caucasian, non-white individuals experience the negative effects of it. White privilege is an unearned asset that the white has access to just based on the color of their skin. White privilege can be displayed in a variety of ways, for example, A white manager having to decide in between a white and black candidate for a higher level position, regardless of the qualification, the white candidate will conquer the job. White privilege discriminates and the Caucasians become so used to the special treatment that they would fault the “others” for not working hard enough to
Ethnos are usually connected with the lower and working classes, don’t trust whites and are often in a state of self-defense “against likely or actual racial injury” They appreciate that to get ahead, they must work with the white majority but trust that white ethnocentrism amounts to racism, and select the same social families. Cosmos, are still generally indeterminate which whites they can trust, but they opt to give them the benefit of the doubt. They find they are considered “race ambassadors” in the cosmos world. In public, the African American is clearly
There is evidence that shows minorities officers that were off-duty had been stopped, guns pulled out on them, being put in police vans like any other minority. When the officers of these incidents made reports to their superiors, they were backlashed for their reporting-denied overtime, promotions choice of assignments. And others refused to make complaints because of actions taken against their fellow minority officers. Minority officers feel the same as any other minority that has to deal with racial profiling. They are not safer because the carry the NYPD badge and identify themselves as one of New York City finest (Kerby, 2012).
For example, in a predominately White neighborhood, only 24 percent of the population in Park Slope was Latino and Black, yet they accounted for 79 percent of the stops. This demonstrates that these cops are racially profiling this group for reasons unknown. Another example is when Sergeant Rossano Gerald, an African American, and his son Gregory, also an African American, were headed to a family reunion in Oklahoma. The moment they crossed over into the state, they were almost immediately stopped by a highway patrol officer for driving too close to the cars in front of them. Soon after being released, another highway patrol officer pulled him over for changing lanes without signaling.
As a white person, I realized I had been taught about racism as something which puts others at a disadvantage, but had been taught not to see one of its corollary aspects, white privilege, which puts me at an advantage” (McIntosh, 1988). It follows that with the whites’ domination and status of leadership, they believe to more privilege as a one solid racial
Gathering of Old Men is a book written by Ernest J. Gaines, which explores the discrimination of black people in the past century. The book is featured by many characters which somehow have their own specific impact on the entire storyline. Both: black characters, as well as white characters have their own faults in the entire story because both of the parties seems to look solution in a violent way which in any case couldn’t lead to something good. Unfortunately although many of them are not aware about it, they all do many mistakes and later have to face the consequences of the actions that they considered to be right back in a time. Candy is a pretty interesting white female character, that although is not one of the main characters, have a great influence on the story itself and how the plot develops throughout the pages.
