whose family is originally from the three mentioned areas. The criminal justice system in the U.S. has discriminated against the Latino over time. Many proposals and strategies to address the disparate treatment of Latino/as within the criminal justice system remain unimplemented Latinos constitute the second largest ethnic and racial group in the US whites with a population of 50.5 million meaning that one in every six people in America and one in four children aged 18 years and below are Latino. Despite the fact that Latinos represent a similar proportion as whites, they are dramatically overrepresented as crime victims in our courts, jails and prisons. According to research, they receive harsher treatment in arrests, pretrial proceeding and sentencing than whites charged with same offenses (Morin & Delgado, 2009).

It is impossible for an equal society. In “Harrison Bergeron” the government makes an attempt for everyone to be equal and the same in every way. This plan to make everyone equal ends up making everyone miserable. You can’t be better than anyone in any way and you are the same as everyone else. The idea of a equal society is very uncivil.
As these men are released from prison not only are their limited skills diminished but they no longer have the right to vote in any elections. With over 1 million African American males currently under the control of the criminal justice system, the voting roles of the African American community are being decimated by this prison epidemic. Some might even argue that the schemes of elitists are oriented around the construction of more prisons to ensure African Americans could not effectively participate in the political process. The incarceration of African American males leads to homes without a father figure involved with the family and the financial provider is gone in most cases. That doesn 't mean kids without fathers will end up doing terrible in life.
Mayella had no say in the trial, which caused her to have no power. The Ewell’s had little to no money at all, and struggled with class. The family lived behind a dump. In the trial with Tom Robinson, Mayella was scared to tell the truth because of the looks her dad was giving her when it was her turn to speak. Mayella was almost forced to say Tom Robinson raped her or her dad would have beaten her.
Even though during the time of this novel, white people were known to be racist and to segregate all people of color, people of color would discriminate against white people because they were jealous/mad at them. When Atticus’ children go to church a black person stops them and lets them know that they have their own church and that they shouldn’t go there because they are the ones who separated them from each other in the first place. Atticus is discriminated against when that the group of people came to the jail to beat up him and Tom Robinson. They were there to put Atticus in his place that he needs to stay away from black people because they feel that he shouldn’t be even associating with him because this was around the time of segregation. In to Kill a Mockingbird Scout asks “Are we poor, Atticus?” Atticus nodded.
But they fail to realize that the system we have now throws anyone in jail no matter if the person committed the crime or not. They also fail to realize that the current system sentencing isn't organized or fair because there are people out there innocent and people who don’t deserve that time that was given for petty crimes. The current system doesn’t seek for justice, they see everyone who gets arrested as a criminal and feels they should be thrown away for a very long time and that isn't fair. Sentencing reforming is highly recommended due to the outrageous modern sentencing practices we have today. People go to jail or maybe even prison for such petty crimes that doesn't deserve the many years that were given to them.
Osborne and R.J. Cormack from the University of Ulster and the Queens University of Belfast, includes various data collections and gives a view on the unemployment rate between 1971 and 1981. 13.9 percent of the catholic population were unemployed, while only 5.6 percent of the protestants had no work. In 1981 the unemployment rate nearly doubled and rose to 25.5 percent, while only 11.4 percent protestant workers were unemployed. The major difference is that, throughout the years the unemployment rate was double as high for the catholic population than it was for the protestant population. In 1961 the Protestants controlled most governmental positions and dominated all important positions.
At the turn of the 21st century the majority that entered the prison system were African Americans and Latinos. (Michelle Alexander, 2010) The reason behind mass incarceration was due to the crack down on the deteriorating communities where the majority of minorities lived.

(U.S. Census Bureau

Breaking it down, this shows that blacks are at a 3.5 times greater risk of being one of the 776 killed by police shootings. Are blacks becoming the victims of these shootings? What might have caused these statistics? Recent studies show minimal to no consequences for misconduct
The way African Americans are treated inside of jail and outside is actually disturbing. The United States is home to 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the world’s prisoners. To think about how big this number is disturbing and numbers keep increasing. The United States prison population in 1970 was just above 327,000, and now the current prison population is just over 2 million. On the one hand I feel American Americans deserve some of the punishment that they get, but on the other I wonder why they are treated the way they are.
