The Progressive Era is one of the reasons America still stands strong today. It lasted from the 1890’s to the 1920’s and seeked to reform American policies and government. There are 3 main people who have contributed to the Progressive area - Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, and Woodrow Wilson. These three presidents enforced and introduced laws and regulations that allowed more flexibility and choice for the people, and they are still in use today.

It 's been about a year and a half since 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by Officer Darren Wilson. This ordeal still holds a lot of controversy. I, myself believe that Wilson 's action were unjustifiable and way worse than just unfair. Regardless of whether or not Michael had stolen something, shooting to kill was unnessecary. It was also unacceptabe and disrespectful for his body to be taken away hours later and in a cop car. When I heard about what had happened I was enraged because it seemed that once again race had made the situation sticky. However, if we were to take away the fact that Michael was black and Wilson was white, it still would not have made Wilson 's actions any better. When you look at the statistics of the matter you can 't help but place blame on the justice system. 1 in 15 black men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in 106 white men. This to me is a gap that is to huge to call a coincidence. Racial profiling and subliminal messages on T.V. make criminal charges look more and more like a death sentence for young black
