African Americans feel targeted in today’s society because so many innocent African Americans are being incarcerated, shot, and killed. Since 2001, it is 6.1 times likelier to be incarcerated as a black man than a white man. This is all because of skin color. Black Lives Matter (BLM) was a group created to raise awareness for the heinous acts the have presented itself to the black community
Race should not matter when it comes to medical attention. Everyone should receive the same treatment options and level of patient care. The article also states that people who look alike act alike. I
African Americans experiences with police are more violent and unfair compared to whites. The series of analyses that Schuck and Rosenbaum (2005) designed were to investigate the relations among type and quality of police contact and residents' attitudes toward the police. People who had negative contact with police reported negative feed back and people who had non-negative contact reported good feedback. For whites, their perception of police may be influenced more by media while blacks would be influenced more by their type of neighborhood. The reason for this is because blacks come in contact more with the police than whites.
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.
I, argue that the society of my race, (African-American/brown/black/colored) form their own hatred division against one another, which would give reasons other race to form their negative opinions towards colored people. The society identifies me as a young black female and the specifics of my appearance have a huge impact on the newer generation, peers, and other surroundings. Between race, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, gender and etc. race is the most salient because the younger generations today has divided themselves among each other. Social media plays a major role into youth lives, causing individuals to change who they are, what they will be in the future, and question what they want to be in the future.
Surveyors on the website Survelum were asked to close their eyes and to imagine a criminal and then identify the race of this criminal, the majority clicked African-American. Why is this? Racism is embedded in the world around us. It’s carefully and deceitfully weaved into society, attacking African-American adults and children, but these racists are hard to identify. They are the media we see, the law enforcement we thought to trust, the education system we have learned from and people in general.
Through his use of such radical ideas and solutions to the civil rights problems of his day, Malcolm X captivates his black audience. Malcolm X completely shatters his listeners' beliefs, using a roundabout form of rhetoric: he uses harsh language that seems to degrade his audience, while, at the same time, he increases their self-confidence subconsciously through their emotions. In successfully convincing his audience that identifying with the white population is not conducive to the eventual liberation of the black people, he is able to say to his fellow
In Brent Staples essay "Just Walk On By: Black Men and Public Space" Staples uses a lot of diction to puts emphasis on the tensions between the black and white races. It was very clear to point out and say that his target audience are the scared white women and people that get frightened when they see a person of color. Staples knows that there are good and bad black people but regardless of what he thinks of himself others will always look at him different. So to change their ideals he uses strong diction to get them to feel different.
According to the article, “Why Police Kill Black Males”, Gilbert and Rashan state, “The criminalization of black males has a long history in the USA, which has resulted in an increase in policing behaviors by legal authorities” (Gilbert and Rashan). They also assert that black males in America have been stereotyped as violent criminals, felons, drug dealers and sexual predators (Gilbert and Rashan). Even more striking is the claim by Matthew Hughley in his article which appeared in Critical Sociology, that the criminal justice system has evolved the ideology that blacks have an inherent predisposition to commit crime (Hughey 857). Sadly, black males are perceived as threats even when they are unarmed. Hughey supports this assertion when he states, “Black Americans who are fatally shot by police are, in fact, less likely to be posing an imminent lethal threat to the officers at the moment they are killed than white Americans fatally shot by police” (Hughey 859).
Trump attacked the idea that he was racist by showing concern for the minority communities. When Hillary implied Trump was racist by saying that Trump was saying that he was saying minority communities are in trouble because of their race instead of crime, Trump dispelled it with the fact that he bought a racist club in Miami so he could let in African Americans, and Jews who weren’t allowed it before. Trump also brought up racist comments from Hillary, such as her calling all young black men “super predators” Although most may view Trump as a racist, he has the support or a lot of important people of a community, such as police officers, Military support, and in a historic moment, the committee on immigration supported him when they have never before supported a candidate. Speaking on this topic is a very touchy subject for most, because it usually revolves around the unfair treatment of people, but predominantly to the African American male. Trump made the promise to be the “Law-and-Order” candidate, but Trump has offered very little detail beyond enforcing laws already on the books and supporting police.
