INTODUCING PROBLEM: Crime in Chicago has been followed by the Chicago Police Office's Department of Records since the start of the twentieth century. The city's general Crime rate, particularly the violent crime rate, is generously higher than the US normal. The explanations behind the higher numbers in Chicago stay misty. An investigation in The Atlantic demonstrates no genuine proof of exact reasons, just speculation. Chicago saw a noteworthy ascent in brutal crime beginning in the late 1960s.
We stay at the Wilderness and have rooms right next to each other. We usually go downtown and stop at a candy shop and we all get taffy. Also going swimming and going to the arcade. We always look forward to the next trip there, it's away we all get to see each other every year if we didn’t make it to Michigan that year.
The Detroit starts off as a place that would be defined as “opportunity”, but the deeper you get into the novel you learn that Detroit becomes somewhat as a burden. Detroit no longer brings the opportunities that it once did, it beings to harbor negative vibes throughout the novel. Somehow the city of Detroit places a burden on the characters of The Turner House all in different ways. But they all ultimately tie into being a negative burden, rather than the land of opportunity that it once was. Although this novel primarily focuses on the Turner family, David Gardenhire is a great example of how Detroit represents a place of burden throughout this novel.
Nevertheless, the black population has been increasing steadily over the decades. Present day Cincinnati has a more diverse population; it has more of 60:40 split between the white population and the minority population (Gibson & Jung, 2005). Cincinnati experienced the Civil Rights movement in the same fashion of many of the large Midwestern cities. Cincinnati experienced riots, like many cities in the North, during the late 1960s. In particular, the Avondale neighborhood is
Some of the best memories of my life were made in this neighborhood with my family and friends in the area I love and will never forget. For me every day is a constant reminder that I am a reflection of where I grew up…Bloomfield born and raised and proud of
On where you live depends which education you receive, the safety on your streets, social networks you can leverage etc. Poverty among many American ghetto residents makes it difficult to out-migrate. Employers hire white people more often than black people. That is why there are so many criminals. There is an unambiguous relationship between employment opportunities and crime exists.
The southern and inner parts of Atlanta were shown to be predominantly black while there were less black families in the southern and outer parts of the city. Racial segregation and Non-White poverty rates are conflated to contribute to concentrated disadvantage. People living in the inner city are more susceptible to living in a destitute state. This is largely contributed to redlining. Redlining is when financial institutions prevent poorer communities from receiving financial assistance.
Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man is a novel that centers itself on conspicuous inauthenticity. The present duality in conjunction with essentialism within the novel echoes the ironies of inherent racism within our society. Trueblood’s dichotomous role within society serves to emphasize the dynamics within the cultural structure. His incestuous transgression results in his ostracism from the black community and simultaneously the white community rewarding him, Trueblood is surprised by their reaction he says “they gimme more help than they ever give any other colored man, no matter how good a nigguh he was.” (67). To Trueblood, the distinction between “good” and bad is obscure, morally he committed “the worse thing a man could ever do to his family”
Detroit’s reputation as you may know is not that great. I actually read an article after booking my flight that Detroit came out in the top ten most dangerous cities in America. But guess what? My trip to Detroit was the best trip I had so far.
The ‘stop snitching’ is a phenomenon that is very prevalent in the African American communities. In the United States, it is recorded that African American as a group are disproportionately poor and often live in area with high crime rate. Research has tried to explain racial inequalities in urban crime. Most of the research has focuses on the context of poverty, which focuses on the structural changes in economic in our culture. Conflict theorists proposed that because of the poverty in some of these communities, it has led to individuals to develop the concept of ‘stop snitching’ because illegal activities for some of these individuals are a way of life.
This new law caused an increase from an estimated 300,000 to 2 million prison inmates over the course of the last two decades. (Michelle Alexander, 2010) According to Rebecca C. Hatey and Jennifer L. Eberhdt of Stanford University, California holds only 7% of African American population but 45% of California’s prison inmates are African American under the three strikes law. (Racial Disparities in Incarceration Increase Acceptance of Punitive Policies 2014) Michelle Alexander writes that the mass incarceration of the 1990’s created a new “racial caste system” and extreme funding for the criminal system. (Michelle Alexander, 2010:58) The three strikes law targeted the communities affluent with minority groups. At the turn of the 21st century the majority that entered the prison system were African Americans and Latinos.
First off, I am humbled to be considered for membership of the National Honor Society. In my opinion on the foundation of the four pillars of NHS the FPC NHS chapter will benefit from my membership because I will bring intellect, drive, leadership, character, dedication to serve my community, honesty, respect, pride, discipline, compassion and among many other qualities a sense of humor. As an active member of my school and community I work hard to serve not just myself but those around me. I am an active volunteer throughout Flagler County as previously stated. I am a teenage volunteer at the Florida Hospital Flagler.
Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student. As a junior in high school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society for doing exceptionally well in my academic endeavors and actively participating in volunteer events. My contributions through this organization have made a significant impact on both my personal development and my community’s support services. The numerous volunteer projects in which I have participated have prepared me to continue helping others in the future. Through projects such as building houses from the ground-up with Habitat for Humanity, I have developed teamwork skills, discovered my management potential, and increased my social network, all while working to provide services for less fortunate individuals in my community.
Chicago and other major cities remain in the news, as they continue to struggle with high murder rates. In fact, the city of Chicago has witnessed a 50 percent increase in its murder rate in only a one year period, and this area is not alone. Thankfully, cities across America and noticing violent and property crime rates remain at historic lows. The new adminstration has noted the increase in murder rates, but needs to also consider that other crimes on are the decline, which is always a good thing. The 30 largest cities in America are seeing an increase in their homicide rates, and this includes places like San Antonio and Memphis, not typically known for this type of violence.
