African Americans should not have to be scared to go outside any day thinking they might not make it home. 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
From this letter you can see Tourgees clear use of the word “another” meaning that other Republican men were targeted and killed by the KKK all because they fought to have the South follow the same rules as the North. It was as though the KKK felt personally battered so they enjoyed doing to same to men that caused such emotions. Politics within the white community was not the only issue. As mentioned before African Americans did not get the political freedom that was actually granted to them not only because of their race and low standing but they were “ ‘unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties… blacks needed a period of probation and instruction’ “ (Document D). The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South.

All black colleges and scholarships based solely on the color of the applicants skin are discriminating and prohibit the advancement of impartiality. A society, which has gradually become more and more politically correct, is now scared to serve due justice to criminals who happen to be of a darker skin tone, for fear of being slandered for being racist and prejudiced. Jameis Winston, former quarterback for Florida State University, was accused of rape, theft and misconduct on numerous occasions. He, not only, got off almost scotch free, but was also the first round NFL draft pick. It is not hard to imagine, that if Jameis had been white, he would have been in a lot more trouble, if not suspended from FSU and football
Racial Profiling Research Paper For the past 20 years we have witnessed many incidents with racial profiling leading to police brutally. Racial profiling ,the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense, is very common in the United States. In this paper we will not be covering any school related subjects, harsh prison cell conditions, etc. Instead, I will only be discussing the effects of racial profiling. Although some may say that racial profiling is not a problem but the fact that it leads to police brutality, racial profiling in its essence is discriminatory against all people of color proving that it is very unjust.
Especially if a black women ran for president this would defiantly have Caucasian in panic for “White America”. For example, when President Obama was elected some didn’t want him to be elected when he first ran in 2008 because he was going to be the first black president. There was some in “White America” who didn’t approve of having a black family in the white house. Another example of why white men still don’t approve of blacks would be the Charleston Church shooting. A white male came into a church and killed so many innocent blacks because of the color of their
It has come to my attention that not everyone is this world is receiving equality and getting justice. Over the last few years the numbers of innocent people especially African Americans being killed have risen dramatically. The whole Black Lives Matter issue started after George Zimmerman was found not guilty for the killing of Trevon martin. Once that situation took place everything started to go downhill and police brutality just kept getting worse towards the African race. If everyone would look at people the same instead of by the color of their skin they maybe things could go a lot smoother and innocent people would not be getting killed.
Racial Tension in Michael Brown 's case On August 9, 2014, eighteen-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting caused protests and has drawn the world’s attention because Michael Brown was an unarmed black man while Darren Wilson is a white police officer. People believe Michael Brown’s shooting involves a racial tension between blacks and whites since Brown was unarmed and surrendered. In Ferguson, the majority of people are African Americans, and the majority of police officers are white. On the night of the shooting incident, Brown was walking home and confronted by Wilson because Wilson thought Brown was suspicious.
No indictment. And the sad part is if I had known what I know now then I would have not been so surprised. This justice system is unfair, to all of its citzens, but more so black and brown citizens. Michael Brown and his family deserved for justice to brought. Some try and say that michael was a thug or like to bring up the fact that he had possible stolen something but the fact remains that an unarmed teen was killed by a police officer.
