Although instances of policemen being explicitly racist are widespread, institutional racism cannot be looked at simply in terms of the explicit biases held by racist actors in law enforcement. It has been theorized that racial biases are so ingrained both in society at large and in the law enforcement machinery specifically, that, more often than not, they tend to manifest subconsciously. The mere perception of race – even without any negative association – can itself lead to prejudice. Our intuitions, which we rely upon for fast and non-conscious mental processes, are beyond our ability to control. Hence, external factors – such as widespread racial biases – influence our gut reactions, and condition us to act, think, and react in certain ways.
Whether by choice, by necessity, or both, they are also Americans." Americans have been constantly fed fear from policymakers and the media. Especially with this current election, we have been told that immigration "present a significant threat to national security and public safety", yet, the census data shows men ages 18-49, immigrants were one-half to one-fifth as likely to be incarcerated as those born in the United States. The media also only portrays the negatives of immigration, instilling fear to the viewer while demoralizing innocent immigrants. If the media portrays the good, showing the humanization of immigrants, viewers wouldn't be as instilled with fear.
1. Impact of illegal aliens on the U.S. economy There have been a lot of arguments about the impact of illegal aliens on the U.S economy. The protesters said that they are the burden while the opposite team thought that undocumented aliens contribute to the country’s economy. Therefore, it can be said that unauthorized immigrants have both positive and negative impacts on different parts of the U.S economy. 1.1.
Crash is that the thought-provoking impulse is not covered as much as it should be, as a result of missing consequences for unmoral or racist behavior. Often, racist or inappropriate actings are justified by biological backgrounds for example tough times the characters are going trough. In the movie you can find many situations of this type. After Jean Cabot and her husband Rick got carjacked, they felt so insecure that they wanted to let their locks get changed. But when Jean realized that the locksmith is a latino who looks like a criminal, she immediately wanted her locks to be changed again - by somebody else.
However, in the Green Hornet Michel Gondry, the director, makes these two “heroes” as criminals because of their preposterous actions. Correspondingly, it is showing that super heroes are actually violating the laws like criminals; however, just because they are the abnormal human-beings they can get away from anything with their popularity and their powers. However, in this movie, Green Hornet and Kato barely have the special power to be like Spider-Man or Scarlett Witch. Therefore, Reid and Kato are more likely to be seen as wealthier citizens with the ability to do martial arts and invent special weapons. And thus, this makes Green Hornet and Kato special because they are the reflection of the political aspect that the public does not need so many rich people trying to be like Iron Man.
The human race has evolved as a unit to become a leery race. Rather than join others in arm to share the same ideologies, welcome foreigners into a conglomerate and believe what is told, humans find it necessary to question validity and carry ideas of skepticism. There is no better example than the western world’s political climate at this very moment, those who have been residing in the United States are currently being deported because a malinformed and dubious leadership has become wary of others. However one may question, where has this human trait stemmed from? The answer lies within the race itself; through the manipulation of rhetoric and the formation of lies, individuals are growing to adopt cultural views that are built from fallacy.
Police Officers Stereotypes are widely circulated oversimplifications of people, they stem from characteristics when looking at groups or individuals. On the other hand, a misconception is a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding. In short, it is an opinion that assumes the worst due to misleading information about groups. We stereotype people because it is cognitively effect, meaning once you have categorized you no longer need to consider information about each individual member of a group. In law enforcement, police officers are seen as racist crooks looking to cause harm and ruin lives of others, when in reality that is completely false.
Our current immigration policy is causing problems and has loopholes. Although there are challenges to reforming our policy, there are major consequences for not reforming the policy. The reform can be done and my ideas for the reforming plan will help eliminate illegal immigration and give illegal parents of US citizens a pathway to citizenship. It is no secret that our nation’s current immigration policy needs some work. Not only is it extremely hard to become a citizen, but our borders are loose and too many illegal immigrants are entering our country and hurting our economy.
Most people think that they don’t deserve the right to a drivers license because that would just cause more danger to them. However, it would be even more dangerous if they did not have the ability to legally drive in the United States, causing more problems. Illegal immigrants are going to drive no matter what, so we might as well give them the ability to do it legally. People that do have their license just wat to make up some false accusations on why illegal immigrants should not receive them, such as: "They have little incentive to spend their wages on car insurance...could result in deportation." Unlike what most people think about illegal immigrants, they are in fact able to obtain some type of car insurance. Immigrants come to America to find better opportunities.
Just as we live in a world where even visas have varying values, discrimination has become an undeniable reality – hindrances to playful world traveling. If we cannot identify with anyone outside of our world, it becomes easier to abuse and oppress them because of a lack of love (seeing oneself in the ‘Other’). W.E.B. Dubois had a desire to see America interpreted through the acknowledgement of two very different worlds merging through African and White Americanism (McKenna & Pratt, 2015). Or as it were, racial barriers should be acknowledged and both sides study to merge and unify.
