While every child should be taught how to address the police, black parents are faced with the task of teaching their child how to survive them. Police brutality for most black families is a generational curse that never ceases to exist. Racial injustice can take on many different forms and identities dating as far back as slavery. Blacks were denied the right to humanity for 400 years-, taking 16 different presidents for blacks to finally obtain a freedom. Yet, while blacks were legally free, they faced years of recurring
Police brutality and racial profiling has always been a conflicting, and a long debated problem. The number of African-American males being killed or the number of African-American males facing excessive force by the law enforcement because of their skin color is rapidly growing throughout the years. Especially after the recent events that took many lives of young African-American people in the last couple of years in the United States, approximately 920 in 2015 alone, this became a very popular issue again, and caused unrest throughout the entire world. The chance of a black unarmed male getting killed is more than twice compared to a white individual. There had been many attempts to answer this problem, however it is still not solved.
On where you live depends which education you receive, the safety on your streets, social networks you can leverage etc. Poverty among many American ghetto residents makes it difficult to out-migrate. Employers hire white people more often than black people. That is why there are so many criminals. There is an unambiguous relationship between employment opportunities and crime exists.
Black English like any other dialect, it has its features in pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, unlike improper English. It is continually developing and it has standard syntactic rules. The blacks who lived in urban communities spoke different accent from those who lived in rural communities according to the need for vocabulary. Standard English speakers often cannot understand the speech of Black people. So the black people did not speak Black English all the time.
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. Hundreds of anecdotal testimonials allege that law enforcement officials at all levels of government are infringing upon the constitutional rights and civil liberties of racial and ethnic minorities through a practice called “racial profiling” (Ward, 2002). 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).
Those other factors are socioeconomic status, history, race, gendered, and geographic background. They play a huge role on the creation and formation of gangs. Theses factor will help understand the cause of gang’s geographical livings, and the strains that instilled in African American gangs. Overall, an awareness that will help stop the violence in black youth in dominate urban areas. The Causes of African American Gangs Anderson, Dyson, and Lee argued that the main cause of the creation of gangs is Robert Merton theory on Strain.
Furthermore, the process of racialization is inherently gendered. Because Black people are not humanized, they are not permitted access to gender in the same way as their white counterparts. During slavery, Black women simultaneously faced gendered violence including rape while being hypermasculinized to perform manual labor. On the other hand, Black men could not access masculine privileges of protecting their families or owning property. Because the racial formations of Blackness rely on these gendered assumptions, gender continues to influence the way Blackness is
Unrest, Ferguson, segregation, riot and #BlackLivesMatter are just some of the words that kept its firm place on front-pages of media outlets despite other issues concerning the United States. Recently, with the start of shooting of Trayvon Martin, there have been constant racial profiling cases that have led to many fatal shootings affecting blacks, many of them merely being in their youth. So, what really is “Racial Profiling”? It is an enduring, and extremely concerning problem that have been facing the United States for decades, despite conservative’s claims that it has already entered a “Post-racial era”. This practice involves law enforcement officers, who target individuals or groups on suspicion of crime based on their race and ethnicity.
And it isn't something created by some hateful racist people . Racism is related to American social structure. After occupation of the America white people started to torture the blacks . And the blacks started to hate the white people . From the perspective of white people, coloured/black people were just as animals to be manipulated.
Sadly enough, it has changed over the years, to where I am afraid or very cautious about black people walking down the street doing drugs or talking like they are hard. That has probably started to happen because of the city I live in which is Oakland, California. That town is known for especially in East Oakland, for shootings between African Americans, gangs, and drug dealing on the streets. Now I’m not saying that I hate black people, I’m just saying that sometimes us African Americans can get really violent and out of
