Even though I 'm a young Asian guy, my political stance is the same as those black people that is being a minority in this white-norm society. So when I saw the police are constantly overpowered, and their attitude toward black people upsets me very much. The fact that black men have to deal with racial profiling from the police for just being black and male is so ridiculous.
Although the girls aren’t muslim, they’re all black and they too face discrimination because of their skin. In our discussion, some of the girls shared that many times their peers and family were the ones to inflict discrimination on them. One example was that many times, the dark skinned girls are often told they’re “pretty for a dark skinned girl.” That resonated something in me because I too often hear that phrase. What hurts the most is that it’s coming from my fellow African American/caribbean peers. I always respond I don’t know how to respond the that.
In the same way, as reported by Dosomething.org, 80% of New York Police Department stops were blacks, 85% of those blacks were searched, but when whites were stopped 8% were searched! The criminal-justice system is supposed to be reliable and a fair system to maintain law and order in the country,but why aren’t they controlling this dangerous crime of racism and
Whether it be all blacks cannot swim to all Muslims are terrorist, the stereotyping needs to cease. The affects on one’s mental health is detrimental, especially if it is a young child. African Americans may be stereotyped as loud and obnoxious when they are truly just getting their point across, just like any other individual. Blacks are not the only race being categorized in today’s society. Rong explains, “In many cases, Asian American students are expected to succeed without particular attention, assistance, or support, despite their English language learner status.” Asians are perceived as the ones who will excel in any class, but what about the ones who need more assistance with their studying?
Poor conditions, lack of nourishment and the use of alcohol and or drugs are a common occurrence and it influences the outcome of the child, which impacts it later on it life. In the article Giving Up On the Young it states in Los Angeles "We see kids from all walks of life," says Harry Hartmann, counselor with the L.A. Office of Education. But "the races are skewed to blacks and Hispanics," he acknowledges. Very skewed--six out of seven of those who are arrested for violent juvenile crimes are black or Hispanic. By strange coincidence, that is just about the proportion of the county 's youths in poverty who are black or
It did not take long for the media to then shove down your throat, that Brown was a black teen and that Darren Wilson, the officer in question, was a white man. Regardless of the decisions made by the courts and the evidence available to the public, it is easy to blame the situation at hand on racism. However, according to the statistics relayed on The Juvenile and Criminal Justice Center website, the stance leaning towards law enforcement bias towards black men, does not hold. These reports state that police killed 123 blacks. On the other hand, these reports also published that the same group of offenders
Racial Profiling Research Paper For the past 20 years we have witnessed many incidents with racial profiling leading to police brutally. Racial profiling ,the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense, is very common in the United States. In this paper we will not be covering any school related subjects, harsh prison cell conditions, etc. Instead, I will only be discussing the effects of racial profiling. Although some may say that racial profiling is not a problem but the fact that it leads to police brutality, racial profiling in its essence is discriminatory against all people of color proving that it is very unjust.
The police jumped into action and treated this case with urgency. The type of injustice that this conflict displayed was distributive injustice. Distributive injustice “is concerned with the criteria that lead you to feel you received a fair outcome” (Deutsch, 2007, p. 44). I believe in most cases involving black people the news make the police out to be bad guys. The most recent cases with the killing of African American males will make you think that the police don’t care about Blacks.
Maxine Waters, a member of congress, is convinced the system is racist, saying that “The color of your skin dictates whether you will be arrested or not, prosecuted harshly or less harshly, or receive a stiff sentence or gain probation or entry into treatment.” (Discover the Networks). “African-Americans comprise only 13% of the U.S. population and 14% of the monthly drug users, but are 37% of the people arrested for drug-related offenses in America.” (Huffington Post). If we trained our officers more thoroughly about how important it is to avoid discrimination we could avoid any accusations of unfairness and work to completely remove racism from the criminal justice
Numerous stereotypes are ignorant ideas of those who are different than they are. In the above cases, it would degrade and offend people to be stereotyped based on your location. People are stereotyped every day, not just on the location of where they are living, but any aspect that people are different from those making the judgement. People who cast stereotypes may just be uneducated about other cultures or geographic locations. It is easier, sometimes, for some to make a judgement, rather than find out what is true.
