There have been hundreds of cases of people discriminating against others because of the color of their skin or their religion. Thomas Paine said that America is made up of people from different nations with different modes of worship, yet they were all united. Things have changed for the worst, and because of it, innocent people are getting hurt. For example, unfortunately, there have been many cases of African American men getting shot by racist white police officers. Of course, not every white policeman or policewoman is racist or targeting people of color, but often people overlook the details and start arguments about the little things.
Police believes they don’t have to respect people of color ,and think it 's okay to mistreat them instead.The officers been discriminating people of color because they assume every african american are criminal and bad.They harass people of color just to make them feel intimidate. The police kill innocent black people and don 't get charged guilty at all.There’s three side of people which is the people who get affected by it, the people who overlooks it, and the people who just don 't care. The police treat people of color differently than whites. It 's like the Jim Crow Law is happening all over again. Police would rather mistreat people of color instead of giving them equal opportunity when it comes to the law.
Police brutality has been a recent rising topic in today’s society. Black people and other minorities are being killed for no specific reason. The color of their skin automatically seems to make them threatening. By wearing darker clothing, they are often looked as sketchy or suspicious. Police officers who are present in certain situations tend to feel scared or threatened.
One of the harshest stereotypes is that people say.” All correction officers are crooked and they mistreat all prisoners and are racist.” These stereotypes are really exaggerated especially because they have no idea what they are talking about. For a movie they watched they are going to think bad for these people that's not fair for these officers. There is one that i do agree with some of the people when they said ,” Correction officers are really racist to black men and mexican people.” I agree with this i had a interview with the warden from chowchilla and he told me that there is a lot of racism in prisons they had have to fire many officers for being really racist to black men. It's usually the white men being racist to the black men but , the black men can't really do anything. The only way the people that are being targeted and being racist is if they talk to the warden and they see in the cameras then they can get the other correction officers that have been racist gets fired really quick and get that attached to their record so, everywhere they go to work racist will be attached to there
In actuality, these individuals are just as hurtful and malicious as hate crimes are because they demonstrate irrational fears such as homophobia and xenophobia, as well as, portray a very dogmatic attitude toward people who oppose their antiquated adherences. Therefore, mankind’s passage through time seems to progress backwards from innovation and compassion when it comes to crimes of hatred, bias and prejudice. In fact, the sheer number of hate crimes that victims still continue to experience today demonstrates society’s obstinate intolerance against religion, race, origin or colour, and sexual orientation. The deliberate act of partaking in bias-motivated
Some are African American and some are Caucasian and much more different races also cops are using race to persecute that is why people are treated differently. According to Racial Profiling, “Occurs every day, in cities and town across the country, when law enforcement and private security target people of color for humiliating and often frightening detentions, interrogations and searches without evidence of criminal activity and based on perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion.” (“Racial Profiling” para.1) This demonstrated that people target people of color everyday. People misjudge them and just assume that African Americans are the bad side or person in any situation. Discrimination is a big problem, and people get treated differently because of their race, religion, ethnicity and much
They been fighting to be heard for years and is still being overpowered by the criminal justice system. They’re willing to give people life in prison because they “looked” like they committed the crime. Policies are even shooting random people because they look suspicious. We are all entitled to safety but not everyone feel safe. What hurts the most is that the people that are suppose to protect us and keep us safe are the ones that 's hurting and making us feel unsafe.
Yet, still today many will continue to judge based upon looks or religion or hate just too easily convict others of crimes they didn’t commit. In the years from 1600s until now millions of people are affected by the act of profiling. From the witch hunt trials to the events after 9/11 and furthermore. It is still unjustifiable to target specific groups for achieving justice in society for a person’s specific beliefs. In today times “To argue that racial profiling is harmless, that it only hurts those who break the law, is to totally ignore the psychological and social damage that can result from always being considered one of the “usual suspects.” S. Wortley, Racial Differences in Customs Searches at Pearson International Airport: Results from a Pilot Survey, supra, 2001 as stated profiling causes more effects than just on the outside just as much on the
Racial profiling is a controversial topic in today’s society, it leads to false assumptions without having any facts. People suspect and target people based on a stereotype about their race. Many minorities are targeted by government officials such as police officers just because of their race or ethnicity. Just because a particular person from a particular race did something wrong, everyone from that race is being discriminated against by people from other races. Injustice is all around us and peoples right are being violated.
Today, America is an ignorant society, many believe that racism has ended throughout every corners of the world and this is far from the truth. American society likes to pretend, they also like to believe in the virtue of this country. We tend to think and believe that racism is a thing from the past and Racism is everywhere in the country and in this world it causes so much racial tensions from people with the a different skin color to religions to race and gives people so many to question how far we have really come from the days of ‘slavery’. These issues can actually be seen in a daily life from papers saying “police force violence against minorities” the well studied arguments on immigration and the obvious separations of urban neighborhoods in large cities. The negative behavior on people generations to generation and discrimination to others is ignorance about a person’s life.
Although numerous people are clearly not as knowledgeable on the problem of human trafficking and how seriously terrible it is, if more people got educated about it and all the problems that come with it and helped to take the initiative to stop it, we can severely decrease the percentage of its existence and make it obsolete. Human Trafficking is more than just one type of problem it consists of multiple things ranging from, illegals, children, sex trafficking, slave labor, and even organs being taken from others to be given to others illegally. In Houston, this plague is growing to a very significant amount. Everyone always questions Human Trafficking and what it is. Most people get a partial answer though when it comes to getting the answer
While watching some scenes from "Straight Outta Compton" you cannot help but be in some kind of shock. We have all heard of police brutality and discrimination, but watching scenes based on a true story raise many eyebrows. You can see the anger that the characters feel after being discriminated because of their skin color. To this day, police brutality is a big issue across the country and it is always making headlines. You would think that by now we would have come a long way, but that is not the case.
However, those who view the world from a comfortable distance are yet to sympathize with the many who are caught up in the criminal-justice system. Many are stripped of their basic civil and human rights. “People who have been incarcerated are often denied the right to vote, excluded from juries, and relegated to a racially segregated and subordinated existence” (Alexander). They are often legally discriminated in employment due to their record as a felon, housing and even access to public benefits. They are oppressed by the system because they are now viewed as criminals and often are lead back to their previous lifestyles before prison; life of
