The term mob mentality is used to refer to unique behavioral characteristics that emerge when people are in large groups. It is often used in a negative sense, because the term “mob” typically conjures up an image of an aggressive, chaotic group of people. Social psychologists who study group behavior also use terms such as “herd behavior,” "herd mentality" or “crowd hysteria” to describe similar behaviors (Smith).

For instance, in the article “7 Statistics That Will Change How You View Racism,” the writer chooses to state that “Juries are prone to racist sentencing,” (Simon). However, this is simply untrue. This quote can lead someone to believe that all juries are racist, while many people who are in a jury are in fact just trying to do what is right in their eyes. This quote can also lead somebody to think that all races are arrested at the same rate, even when different races are arrested at different rates. According to statistics from the Bureau
The intention of my research is to expose the racist tactics in the criminal justice system that have been camouflaged. I am prepared to explain how racism contributes to the vast number of incarcerated African Americans, and other minorities. The criminal justice system has created and perpetuated racial hierarchy in the United States, and has done so throughout history. I propose the question: Are minorities being targeted within the Criminal Justice System? African Americans are criminalized and targeted because of their skin color, and it is not fair.
A hate crime is a crime motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudice, typically one involving violence. “A hate crime can also be defined as any wrongdoing perpetrated against a particular group of people. It is formed of prejudice directed at a group of people or individuals based on their ethnicity age, sexual orientation, gender, religious preference or any other defining characteristics.” (crime museum) Usually anytime different groups may come in contact somehow with each other, there is more than likely to be conflict, fighting, and tension between the groups. “Weather the crime in question is assault, theft, verbal abuse or even murder.” (crime museum) Hate crimes have not been a recent thing they date back to ancient civilization.

Racism is a concept based on power and oppression, and ultimately white people are the ones that hold that power and use it to oppress people of color. The only reason why the term "reverse racism" is resonating so much among white people in America right now is because of the blatant incidents of racism against people of color that have become too frequent to ignore, as for example "the police beating death of Ottawa man Abdirahman Abdi, or the fatal shooting of Colten Boushie, an Indigenous man from Saskatchewan" (Krishnan, 2016). Now that the color communities are willing to interrogate issues of racism more openly, the white community pushes back claiming that the rebellion of people of color against the white privilege is an attack against their race. But facts are not racists, they are just hard to
Blackface and Yellowface Blackface is part of a history of dehumanization, of denied citizenship, and of efforts to excuse and justify state violence. From lynchings to mass incarceration, whites have utilized blackface (and the resulting dehumanization) as part of its moral and legal justification for violence. It is time to stop with the dismissive arguments those that describe these offensive acts as pranks, ignorance and youthful indiscretions. Blackface is never a neutral form of entertainment, but an incredibly loaded site for the production of damaging stereotypes...the same stereotypes that undergird individual and state violence, American racism, and a centuries worth of injustice. - David J. Leonard, professor of critical culture

This thesis is backed up by these pieces of evidence that have been gathered. In TEDx Talk, they speak about how the holocaust was influenced by hate and bullying and were targeting people like: gays, jews and blacks, which the Nazi’s saw them as “It’s” nothing more but just roaches and waste of space so they murdered them causing a genocide which they believed
