After all, as a sociologist, we need to realize that oppression needs a solution, specifically powerlessness and violence because it still occurs today. People should feel that they have the resources and opportunities to succeed. Also, they are able to voice their own opinions at school, work, and surroundings without been seen as an inferior. Dominant groups or professionals should allow more privileges to the powerless group and provide them with opportunities to develop their skills overtime. It is also essential that school and jobs can teach a powerless individual to become powerful and have the right to be respected at all times.
In conclusion, the idea of racial profiling and the issues on racism in today’s society calls attention to sustain peace and ethnic equality within communities all across the nation and around the world. It is important to acknowledge that the main solution to change the issues on racial profiling and racism is among the duties of government authorities, law enforcement officials, and the people of a nation. Everyone, of any race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or authority needs to understand that our voices and actions are capable of fixing the issues of racial injustice into a more fair environment to all people of color. Therefore, it is up to our knowledge and actions to help people understand that the solution to obtain racial equality
The leaders of these organizations need create a plan that develops and changes the perception and policing habits of their officers. Better policing of communities will leave foster better and lasting relations with residents. For example, take the Portland, Oregon police department plan to address the practice of racial profiling. The 61 page document that lists in detail a way to combat the use of racial profiling. It covers a “Tools for Tolerance” training, Training to develop officers interpersonal relationships and the issue of race.
To this day these students face the high cost of racism while pursuing educational goals. In Moore’s closing chapter she addresses one of the things I pointed out about choosing to attend these elite law schools. In her own words she tells us that if students choose to participate unquestioningly in this so-called community, they must essentially objectify themselves, removing their personal life experiences and the recognition of the histories of their communities from the law school discourse in which the engage. To reject this dehumanizing white frame, the must either attempt to disengage from their law school experiences or choose to fight an ongoing daily battle against the power of an institutional space with deeply racialized norms. Even though she shows that this mental and emotional consequences of these paradoxical choices represent an extremely high cost that only students of color are required to pay in their pursuit of a legal education.
It is evident that racial profiling exists in society, but it is how we address it now that will shape the future of our community and country. If we work to eliminate stereotypes, people will not be judged solely based on assumptions people make about them, whether it spans from citizens to police officers. We now must stand together in the fight to keep equality for all by attempting to halt institutional ethnic and racial profiling, before more tragic events
An education should be a priority to all students and we, as the Latino community, must reshape the policy flaws to establish a foundation that will help the growing Latino community. From my own personal experience,
If one does not speak up about the prejudice that happens within ones society, then it will continue to happen. Once the oppressed discover their voice, there should be no stopping them. As Dr. Black says, “When the oppressed speak, oppressors subdue, because oppression cannot be maintained under discovery of the power of the voice.” In “The Pedagogy of the Oppressed”, Paulo Freire writes on the relationship between the oppressed and the oppressors. Throughout the first chapter, Mr. Freire makes it clear
They do not see it is a system, a web of interlocking, reinforcing institutions: political, economic, social, cultural, legal, military, educational, all our institutions. As a system, racism affects every aspect of life in a country” (Martinez). Though some feel like racism in America today is nonexistent, it is typically because they are more sensitive to the matter and do not like discussing racism, which evokes discomfort. This then leads to an avoidance of the issue entirely, and an issue unresolved. 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.
Race is a hypothetical problem that we need to cease. By cutting out stereotypes, learning to quit prejudging, and not letting others be a victim, we can end racism. With the help of our society and getting the word out there, people will start to feel equal. When our country
Mahatma Ghandi once said, “You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” Ghandi believed that even with the wrongs in humanity there is still good in human nature. Despite the negative actions of verbal abuse and non-acceptance that people commit today, we still have the people in the world that make it a better place. We also have people to this day that still discriminate against race even though they have been educated with the issues that come with their actions.
C8 Core competency eight involves engaging in policy practice to advance social and economic well-being. I think that engaging in policy could consist of multiple aspects of social work. I had to chance to participate in some policy practices through my experience in the classes, and internship. This core competency is associated with two practices that I will be linking to specific artifacts. The first practice behavior is analyzing, evaluating, formulating, and advocating for policies that respond to emerging local, regional, and societal trends to advance well-being.
Jury service is necessary for our society to function because it’s an opportunity to reflect on our shared constitutional values. Jury duty is an obligation of citizenship just like paying your taxes or voting. You are invited to participate and be involved in the most personal, and tragic events in the community. A jury decides whether a person lives or dies or whether a company goes bankrupt. “It may well be the closest you ever come to the Constitution- not just exercising a right it gives you, but participating in the process through which constitutional rights and values come alive in practice” (FERGUSON, The Antlantic, 2013).
Statement of Purpose In light of recent events and social media uproar, the goal of this argumentative paper is to provide a brief but comprehensive understanding to the concept of the black lives matter movement and slogan. The movement is an affirmation of Black people’s contributions to society, humanity, and their resilience in the face of oppression. (“About,” n.d.) As a result, this paper will critically examine the foundation of the movement and the validity of both sides of the argument and the media’s involvement and several other topics.
Black lives matter is a national organization working towards bettering the lives of African Americans. It works toward rebuilding the black liberation movement. Black lives matter movement does not mean any other life is not as important. It's simply justifying that right now in the moment, the lives at stake are black lives.
The Black Lives Matter movement has intervened on America’s unjust treatment of African Americans with nonviolent protests, rallies to reach out to the people, and the making of coalitions of Black Americans. Since the Black Lives Matter movement has started the ideal of civil disobedience has changed in the public eye. Civil Disobedience is still relevant in today’s world, but with the historic beliefs of Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, Martin Luther King, and other advocates of bettering America, we can discover a better way to find resolutions in violent political conflicts. “Consent of the governed determines if a law is just” was an ideal coined by John Locke, an advocate of America freedom. The ideal says that the people that follow
