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.
Pew Research Center found in a survey that was held, that fifty percent of white people that they talked to think that white people and black people are treated equally by the police, and, thirty eight percent of white people believe that there is no more racial work that needs to be done in our country, which is absolutely insane to me. Americans voted for and elected a president that claims there is no problem with police racism and brutality in America, but there is a problem with officers being targeted. To me personally it is extremely sad to read articles and see headlines on tv about police brutality and that our president sees nothing wrong with it, like many Americans. They don 't believe it exist when its clearly everywhere. I think many Americans think that there is a problem with the black person whom was killed by the police, rather than the officer who actually murdered the person.
His claim was that Tom was innocent and could never take advantage and abuse Mayella Ewell. The first reason was that Tom could not do it because Tom is right handed and crippled in his left because he got it caught in a cotton gin when he was a young boy. This shows that Tom could do it because in To kill a mockingbird it says, “It would tend to show that a left handed person did it.”Lee 238 Logos was strengthen which was appealing to the audience common sense. Bob Ewell says in the book “I can use one hand good as the other.”Lee 238 this is saying that he could be left handed and could be the one the abused Mayella. This might cause the unbiased audience to feel and think that Bob could have done it.
Young black men who are shot by the police are very commonly justified, such as Michael Brown who was shot by police because he went for a cops gun inside a cops car. Slyville Smith was killed because he had a record of various arrests, and refused to put his illegally obtained pistol down when an officer asked him to. Where are the overzealous white cops who are out to take young black men into prisons for no reason? Where are the cops who kill solely because they're racist? Some may argue that cops who are pulling people over for “small” crimes like a broken tail light or slightly overspeeding is what causes more police brutality, but if a cop pulls a person over for a broken tail light, and they gets out of the car with a weapon, is the cop really racist in that scenario?
Jem, Scout, and the friend Dill attended the trial. Growing up in an non racist home did not let them see the way every other white person saw it. The white folk did not see Tom, Atticus’s defendant, deserving a fair trial because he was black. Atticus knew this that, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed”(Pg. 276).
There is no proof of any crime, so there should not have been a guilty verdict. The Ewells could have been lying because most likely Mayella tempted Tom. Back then if you were involved with a colored person you were disgraced by the whole town. Mayella could have been trying to cover this up and get Tom arrested so he wouldn't be able to tell anyone. The jury convicted Tom Robinson because he was colored and back then white people believed they had to stick together against the colored people.
Racism hasn’t gotten better. If anything, it’s gotten worse. Innocent black people are being shot by cops because they “look suspicious”. But, there are people trying to fix it, and many protests. The main thing is that racism isn’t just about blacks.
Black was on several committees, including the Civilian Complaint Review Board for a police department. During his life time, Black has written several articles and books stating facts and information about racial discrimination, police actions, and religious beliefs. The People and the Police is a book written about police brutality, racial discrimination, and how police officers interact and respond to the community. Police officers perform several tasks on a daily basis, and Black (1968) gives his readers an insight to the tasks a police officer may perform. Those tasks may include writing traffic tickets, arresting an intoxicated person, or simply helping an old lady cross the street.
Bias and prejudice influence the way people judge, think, and form opinions about other people or situations. Although they still exist today, bias and prejudice were especially present during the 1930’s in small, rural towns across the country. There were many examples of bias and prejudice in the book To Kill A Mockingbird. Harper Lee conveys that bias and prejudice are negative and effected Tom Robinson and the Cunninghams in an unfavorable way. In the story, Tom Robinson was accused of rape.
