A huge dispute aroused after members of the Alpha Delta fraternity, at Dartmouth College, hosted a "Bloods and Crips" theme party. Members of this fraternity, which are majorily white, dressed up as gang members of two gangs from the South Central Los Angeles area. Aside from dressing up, the members of this party also engaged in racialized language and speech, turning the environment of the themed party into a “ghetto” scene. Although many members of the administration at Dartmouth College condemned this incident as morally wrong, no further action was taken. Even though the members of the fraternity apologized for their wrong acts, students who felt attacked requested others to report this incident as a biased act.
The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.
As the movie went on, all the jurors had explained why they had a bad view on children from the slums. Juror number three is the one who is always thinking the worst of the boys from the slums. In the end of the movie he has a picture of a boy, his son, who is from the slums and makes him upset so he is trying to take out his anger toward his own boy on the boy on trial. All the other jurors except number eight, have a bad view of the slums because of the prominence of crime in the areas of the slums and they don 't see all the kids from the slums because they just see the bad kids that come from the areas. The jurors may not know all the children from this area so they will have a lack of knowledge.
Zoot Suit Riots were a series of conflicts that occurred between the police workers and Mexican immigrants youths who wore garments called zoot suits.

The book explores how the Jews were treated during the holocaust. Jews were sent to concentration camps all around, other Jews were forced to be in charge of them and give them orders, they were called the Kapo.

They were frustrated in the jail, so group of African American inmates rioted trying to escape, after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The worst case in the documentary was the My Lai Massacre, where U.S. troops went in and destroyed the village, killing many women and children. “Americans didn’t want to be believe that these things occurred in the name of the American people and for the sake of freedom”, so it was something that was swept under the rug until journalist got a hold of it. I understand now why the Vietnam War caused many to be diagnosed with PTSD and why it was very unpopular war. I am still interested in knowing the South Vietnamese side of the story, as well as the North

They filmed the whole thing and threatened to tell the police.” Last year in Mumbai, a 31-year-old marketing professional was followed by two men into a public toilet and forced to perform oral sex on them.

Homophobic and transphobic forces in society combined with the absence of adequate legal safeguards against discrimination expose the LGBT community in all regions of the world to excessive human rights abuse.

I stud up to greet him.While standing I noticed a slight sound of mexican music from the back of the restaurant and the countless number of homeless people protesting their pure hatred for the restaurant outside the large windows.

His receding hairline suggested he was around mid 40’s-50’s.

In the end there were less than half of the original inmates left, and one of the stand-by inmates had gone on a full blown food strike, and was severely reprimanded for it. The guards posed the other inmates against him and made him look as if he was the bad guy. Guards started to make his cell mates force and mock him in order to get him to eat. This tactic was to no avail, so they ended up putting him “in the hole” for three hours, even though the established limit was only one hour. It is completely understandable why the men that played the inmates were so enraged, there were established rules that were by no means followed throughout the experiment.
Because police brutality has increased to such extremes, misconduct has had many impacts on society and the law. Currently, there is great mistrust between citizens and police departments. Just as the King attacking caused riots in the L.A community, the recent brutality reports have caused major issues in cities nationwide.

There was also the Eric Garner quandary in 2014 who was choked to death by police.Also, there was the John Crawford accident in 2014 who was on the phone with his mother of his kids when he was shot and killed by police for being suspected as a dangerous shooter.
