Many people try to convince themselves that racism no longer exists but it does. Each race is different, but being different doesn 't make you better. No one is born a racist it is learned behavior. Racism occurs everywhere, it happens in schools, the streets, at jobs, homes, and within police departments. The biggest wrongdoing in the criminal justice system is that it’s a racially biased institution targeting African Americans and punishing them more aggressively
IBT Media talks about how America’s trust has fallen nineteen percent because of the lack of policy and the increase in political divide (Poladian). All things considered, terrorism is being handled whether a productive or crippling path is being taken. Faith may not be a quality shown by several Americans, but a process is clearly being taken over the years to establish an environment lead out of harm’s way. September 11th has left a tremendous scar on Wall Street and all of America. The effects of 9/11 has tested the people of this country in more forms than one.
When the phrase Jim Crow is uttered, many people feel a rush of inept thoughts and bad memories due to the social taboo against talking of the lowest point in America’s history. Jim Crow was not just a set of laws aimed to oppress the lives of all black people, but a movement by the citizens, black or white, that caused a corrupt mindset in all men and women. Many people tried to stop the social force from continuing in individual spurts of courage, but they were not able to stop Jim Crow as individuals. An individual’s own personal courage cannot fight against Jim Crow, because a single person would not be able to stop an entire movement embedded into the minds of millions of people, not to mention how the social pressure against it was too strong to even fathom fighting against it.
The Brock Turner case is a very controversial case that spark debate on the subject of white male privilege and the abuse of power. People speculate that the only reason Turner received such a minimal sentence is because his parents are affluent and influential, due to their success and status as a white professional. He was found guilty and the judge gave him a very lenient sentence. Many people saw this as unfair to the girl that was raped and to everyone else impacted by this man 's crime. The judge 's name is Aaron Persky.
“The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom is courage.” In the United States, Americans are blessed to have the right to freedom. Unfortunately, in underdeveloped countries, freedom is limited. For instance, in many Latin American countries, the governmental leader obtains most power. The citizens have no rights to freedom, as they are trapped in a cruel country where innocent people are killed each day.
Focusing more on the white people protracted in the movie, they seemed to be very aggressive. This was because society was brainwashing them into believed that they had some higher power over the black people just for the difference of the skin colour which made all “their power” run to their head. Now from the slaves’ point of view, they seemed to feel infer and many of them didn’t understand why God was putting in a life that they didn’t deserve. Many of the men, women, and children that were all separated from each other became depressed. This is obviously very normal since they are being stripped away from their loved to be sold like an item to people who think they have more power over them for having lighter skin colour.
It’s all just unfair because some Americans obey the law and are really nice while there are the ones who call others names and cause them to commit suicide. Then there is also women 's rights, which is a very big problem, because women are not making the same amount of money as a man who does the same job with the same assignments. The Declaration of Independence clearly stated that all men are created equal, but nowadays society is basically disagreeing with that by having to protest about how all lives matter and how some NFL players are taking a knee. Protesting is our right and yet some people have gotten mad at those NFL players for standing up for themselves, getting their rights, and it is unfair of people to start hating on them for trying to get
Also the consumption of the media by Americans overall Overall the media has effect the america overall by showing false reports about what had happened or just making a riot with african americans that do not like what has happened to their own kind. From this quote it tells me that ever since african-americans were slaves they have been treated like animals, and white americans think that we are stupid but that is not the case though. Though I know there are actively racist teachers out there, most White teachers mean well and have no intention of being racist. How does destine black communities view the way race is media today?
Discrimination is an unseen weapon used by today 's generation. America herself has become extremely prejudice without acknowledging the consequences of her actions. Although America is not deliberately following the ways of her past, her uncanny behavior is only worsening the discrimination she swears to rid have herself of. Consequently speaking America has attempted to rid herself of her past misconceptions, she has mistakenly given her past discriminated victims more rights than everyone else. Living in this beautiful country I have come to realize that our government feels as if they need to make up for our past political parties mistakes.
The promote racism and think it is ok to hurt people because of their race. They also believe that their race is better than another. I just want those people to know that is not ok to say hurtful things to other people. Nobody deserves to die because they are not a certain skin color, or aren’t a part of a certain religion. We all are people and deserve to live peacefully in America without thinking that someone is going to kill them.
Ethnicity and Hollywood Racism is always issues which take a huge part of American history. Until the twenty-first century, although people tried to make the country becomes the freedom and equality nation, these issues are still happening everywhere. According to "In Living Color: Race and American Culture," Stuart Hall argues that racism is still widespread in the society and "it is widely invisible even to those who formulate the world in its terms" (qtd. in Omi 683). Indeed, situations about race quietly exist in the movie industry, which "has led to the perpetuation of racial caricatures" to the majority audiences and even minority audiences (Omi 629).
In America Police Brutality is out of control. It’s a problem in America because of racism, stereotype and disrespect. Majority of the brutality has been done on African American men. It is understandable some american citizens may think police brutality is a problem. In reality its really a problem.
