All of this happened because of the beliefs that society had on these people. While most of the people in the play were hanged, some of the people died in different ways. One these methods was by placing boulders on their chest until they could no longer breathe, which is what was used on Giles Corey. Although Giles wasn’t accused of witchcraft, he was killed because he refused to tell the court the name of the person he got information from. His death is explained when Elizabeth tells Proctor, “He would not answer ay or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property.
In February 2012, a 28-year-old man followed a 17-year-old youth and killed him on a residential street. The youth hadn’t done anything; he did not commit a crime, and he hadn’t provoked the older man. He was shot simply because he seemed “suspicious.” This was the story of Trayvon Martin’s death in Sanford, Florida at the hands of George Zimmerman (Cooper). Zimmerman, the killer, is a white man while Trayvon was an innocent black youth. While Trayvon’s death was a tragedy, it was also an example of violent racism in the United States.
While Carl Lee was at home after he killed two men who raped his daughter, the sheriff came and took him to the prison for the murder of these two men. The city became divided between those who think that he should be killed because he is a murderer that belongs to the black people, and the others believe that Carl Lee should not be imprisoned on what he did because they deserved it. They have raped a little black girl which have become a case of racism murder. This issue of racism had led to an increase in racism between the black and white people who are presented by the (KKK). Actually they have caused this racism as well.

We have some blacks who are killed by white police officer for reasons people shouldn’t be killed for. Such as the black man that was selling cigarettes on the corner in New York and the white police men killed him. After he repeated said he couldn’t breathe and yelled for them to stop. When the Confederate flag was taken down many whites didn’t approve and rioted. There is still a fear that blacks will possibly improve in jobs, class and social status.

Death penalty is worst than life sentence because with life sentence you still have the ability to breathe, walk, and talk.
Racism has always been a popular topic throughout the course of American history. It may be arguable that African Americans have gained the equality they have fought for, and in more extreme cases, died for. Richard Wright was born after the Civil War, but before the Civil Rights Movement. If he were writing an autobiography today, in 2016, about a black boy growing up in the United States, he would write about the mass incarceration of black men, the discrepancy faced by African Americans with a college degree compared to the whites without, and the difference in wage distribution between white Americans and African Americans.
