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.

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).
The Boston Massacre is an event most Americans and British students learn about over the course of their education. In America, we learn that British soldiers fired upon innocent civilians, although this may not have been the case. British historians have referred to the Boston Massacre as the "Incident on King Street". After looking over the "Captain Thomas Preston 's Account of the Boston Massacre", as well as "Boston Massacre Trial Depositions" I believe that American historians should refer to the "Boston Massacre" as the "Incident on King Street". The definition of a massacre refers to an unnecessary and random killing of a large number of individuals.

In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong.

It took place in both societies; in Fahrenheit Mildred and other unknown people tried to take their lives because they were not happy. In the U.S, people have some of those same feelings. People hold in emotions or struggle with happiness, but in America there are programs and people trained to help. In America instead of hiding the problem there are ways to help.

The article by Karen Sternheimer provides some insight into the stats of murder in America. In doing so, the article also highlights some issues with the media today. We learn that the media turned a statistic in way to help themselves instead of properly providing the real statistic.

According to the New York Times journalist Alan Schwarz, he suggests, “The N.F.L.’s concussion studies have faced questions since they were published” (“N.F.L.’s Flawed Concussion Research and Ties to Tobacco Industry”). The NFL has formed a committee to conduct researches on concussions and its effects, although many data and researches are flawed and concealed from the public. Alan Schwarz also commented, “Confidential data obtained by The Times shows that more than 100 diagnosed concussions were omitted from the studies” (Schwarz).

As a result, fans and even doctors was unaware of the situation on concealment.
