With more African Americans in jail, this has had a crippling effect on the black community. The children of these inmates grow up without one of their parents, they to do poorly in school and have negative view on police officers and the law. African Americans are put in jail at a higher rate than any other race. President Trump has stated that he wants to enact a nationwide policy similar to Stop and Frisk. This would give officers the right to stop any pedestrian and search them regardless of
Also, there was the John Crawford accident in 2014 who was on the phone with his mother of his kids when he was shot and killed by police for being suspected as a dangerous shooter. These incidents have led to very damaging riots like the one in Ferguson, Missouri because Michael Brown was shot and killed after bullying a store clerk. A much more recent episode of rioting took place in Baltimore, Maryland after the death of Freddie Gray who was manhandled and not given medical assistance after being brutalized. During one account where an officer attacked a black man, the department stated that it had nothing to do with race but the man feels differently. Across the nation and all over social media many have given their opinions about these issues with the majority saying that the government really needs to step in and help the situation.
Incidents concerning racism are now receiving a lot of media attention. Twenty-five years ago, a group of police officers beating on a black person would not have gotten as much media attention as the Rodney King incident. Rodney King was an African-American who was pulled over and beaten by four Los Angeles police officers for reckless driving while under the influence of an illegal substance. That unfortunate event was pivotal in the sense that the whole world gained consciousness on what was really going on as far as racial tension was concerned. There have been many other publicized incidents in the news after the Rodney King incident.
This shows that through all of this hatred, there are white people who understand the struggles African Americans have. They stop treating the African Americans with hatred because eventually everyone shares the same fate. During the disagreement between African Americans and White people, no one wanted to think how the police all around was treating people wrong. This is because police are protect and help people, therefore most people wouldn’t question them: “ I doubt you would so quickly commend the policeman if you were to observe their ugly and inhumane treatment of Negros here in the city jail; if you were here to watch them curse and push old Negro women and young Negro girls;
Police believes they don’t have to respect people of color ,and think it 's okay to mistreat them instead. The officers been discriminating people of color because they assume every african american are criminal and bad. They harass people of color just to make them feel intimidate. The police kill innocent black people and don 't get charged guilty at all. There’s three side of people which is the people who get affected by it, the people who overlooks it, and the people who just don 't care.
The Impact it had on the rioters was that the national guard and police arrested 600 people during the riot. “When President Jim Carey came into town when he was on the middle of the speech the rioters were about to start a riot and harm the president”(Donnie). These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop. All of those events lead up to the city realizing what damage they did to the community. During the time when Arthur McDuffie was beat to his death by Dade county police officers, an event of riots broke out in Dade county, these deadly events created very bad damage to the black community and caused more racial conflict in the community.
People acted out of anger and displeasure in the moment so they fought and fought, One race was tired of being mistreated so they tried to make a difference, the other race didn’t want anything to change and wanted them to stay in their miserable place. I’ve read online many events where a black person and a white person did the same crime but there’s this thing called white privilege which let’s them get away or won’t suffer as much. I think this is very much sad because it’s been almost a century since the Race Riots have started and almost nothing changed except African-American getting the equal amount of rights. That’s sure an improvement but people are still immature and uneducated enough to learn how to not be racist, I see nothing wrong with black people but there are people who still do. Seeing how today’s society is still unchanged in some areas, I still personally think the Chicago Race Riots would still have started even without Eugene William’s death but at a much later
The history of the negative relationship with the African-American community and law enforcement can be traced back to the Jim Crow period. Jim Crow laws touched every aspect of social life, from African-Americans not being able to freely use public facilities, Negroes had to sit on the back of the bus and whites sat in the front, could not shake hands with a white male, to whites not entitled to use courtesy when referring to blacks. "Police were used to enforce discriminatory laws, they were entrusted to keep African Americans in their place, and were also known as slave patrols” (Ebooks.2014). In one example, "Negro criminals or suspects, or any Negro who show[ed] signs of insubordination should be punished, and that this is a device for preventing crime and for keeping the Negro in his place" (Skolkick, 2007). This segregation system separated our communities into two categories, blacks and whites.
In America Police Brutality is out of control. It’s a problem in America because of racism, stereotype and disrespect. Majority of the brutality has been done on African American men. It is understandable some american citizens may think police brutality is a problem. In reality its really a problem.
The civil rights movements that occurred in the 1960’s changed American Society forever. Some of the most memorable and polarizing movements and laws include Bloody Sunday, the Fair Housing Act, the Freedom Riders and the Montgomery Bus Riots. These are just a few of the demonstrations and laws that occurred during this volatile time period in American History. Many of these events have been have revisited and taught in American History class throughout students’ high school and college years. These events have been archived in annuals of American History and have their place of importance right along with the Bill of Rights and the 19th Amendment that allowed women the vote.
Police brutality and racial profiling against has became a huge problem in America. In 2016 more than 250 african americans were killed by police officers. Two thousand and fifteen an estimate of 306 blacks were killed. Mainly our african american men have been killed innocently by an officer because the color of his skin.
As an African American citizen, I am deeply impacted by the current events. It is another example of how African Americans are treated in a country we built. I believe officers still carry stereotypes society has created among the race. I also believe training is lacking within the Police Department. What surprised me the most, was how quick the investigation and invasion of Micah Xavier Johnson’s home was completed.
The police department of Los Angeles slogan is, “to protect and to serve.” To protect and to serve as in providing safety and assistance. As of November 29, 2015, 1,077 citizens have been killed by a United States’ police. That is equivalent to at least one death every eight hours. Do you feel protected?
Over the past few years police officers in the U.S have killed many black teenagers. Police officers use over excessive force on black people for no reason. They discriminate against black people because of the stereotype that terms them as drug dealers and gangsters when most of them are not, most of them are just normal people. Most black people do live in ghettos where there are a lot of crimes, but it
