How should I change? People are not supposed to change because others around them are discriminating them and making them less confident. They are themselves and they are not supposed to change for one individual that decides to discriminate and hurt them. A quick example is the U.S. The police there kill black people with little consequences thinking they are black so they must have done something wrong.
When there is a news story about police brutality on black people, there are people that say that the cops are innocent and should not be held accountable for murder (Greene32). When someone is killed by another person it is murder no matter what unless if it is in self defense, but a lot of the murders of black people by cops are for no reason. We hear stories about how an officer has shot and killed black male after pulling them over and saying that it was in self defense to shoot, but what they do not tell you or show is that the man was just stepping out of his car and had his hands up. Another opposition is that it is not discrimination. When cops are accused of discrimination against blacks people there will always be people
To back him up, take this quote for example. "As you grow older, you 'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don 't you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash." Atticus was speaking so quietly his last word crashed on our ears. I looked up, and his face was vehement. "There 's nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who 'll take advantage of a Negro 's ignorance.
He tries to explain that even the police who take a vow to protect and serve turn the other cheek not caring the slightest, but if they shoot a black person they are called a hero. Drug dealing, theft, and poverty are the main topics in Tupac 's music referring to rough neighborhoods that give little to no opportunities to improve quality of
The unfortunate events leading up to Emmett Louis Till’s death and unfair trial were for one reason only- he was black. “The word is some nigra boy from Chicago made ugly remarks and then whistled to Miz Bryant.’ The deputy chuckled. ‘Fool boy forgot where he was, and it’s a fact somebody’s sure to give that boy a talking to. It’ll do him damn good to learn how things work here in the Delta”(107). Emmetts actions were of course inappropriate, but a reasonable punishment would’ve been something along the lines of what Mr. Chatham stated in his final argument, “if they had any idea in their minds that this boy did anything wrong- was to take a razor strap, turn him over the barrel, and whip him… A man deals with a child accordingly as a child,
Well found out that White mob would lynched family members or friends if they could not find the suspect. This brother of the suspect is innocent and did not rape White women, however, he was hung because of the hatred White men hold toward his brother. This is not about punishing crime, but to control or oppress them to social, economical in the society. Wells also found that white were rarely lynched even though they committed a crime. She found out that lynching become an entertainment for people in the South.
Can you imagine how it feels to no longer have your pride and joy with in a split second, due to the way they look? The exctuaray pain of a death of a child is a mother 's worst nightmare.They feel it is the only way to raise attention. In the city of Ferguson, Michael Brown was an unarmed black teen and was shot by police; this was the beginning of a wave of uprisings against police brutality nationwide. Michael Brown’s death proved how race played a role in the police system. The alteration was a interracial conflict.
The wrong lesson to take out of this is to believe Black Lives Matter without thinking that blue lives matter, too. Every action comes with a reaction and no, not every cop has good intentions. The majority of cops that do, only want the best for the people that they serve. On one side a person can be distressing for the black men who have been killed by white police officers, but then on other side grieve for the five Dallas officers gunned down by an African-American sniper while doing their duty. In this situation it is not hard to choose a side.
In addition the scenes of violence and racism in the film Mississippi Burning affected my emotions leaving me speechless,disappointed about how 1964 once was. Witnessing factual history unfold in the film was devastating it is a crucial process to understand. The African Americans were innocent. Other individuals conducted harming particularly the African American race as a game,that they gained pleasure from. To start with it’s cruel and inhumane it is an additional insult to humanity.
Tom Robinson is not guilty but suffers death only because of the color of his skin and the racial segregation of the time. "The only thing we 've got is a black man 's word against the Ewells '. The evidence boils down to you-did-I-didn 't. The jury couldn 't possibly be expected to take Tom Robinson 's word
Instead of addressing the racial injustice, they speak of the riots and protests against police officers by black individuals. The tragedy of the entire event isn’t even references in the NY Post, which straightaway appeals to supporters of the law enforcement system, inflaming readers with bold statements such as, “We have two more cops who were ambushed because of their uniforms,” (Inflaming Ferguson, NY Post). Although Washington Times can admit that such an event is a tragedy, they do display more noticeable support for the police departments. They go so far as to admit that, in their viewpoint, “a tragedy occurred, but a crime did not” (A tragedy in Ferguson, but the crime is the work of race hustlers, Washington Times). The appeal isn’t directed towards any civil rights activists with these two news sources, as NY Post has said, “The whole ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ narrative promoted by activists and the media was false from the start” (NY Post).
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.
