Racial Profiling can sometimes be good when it comes to securing a nation or one 's own self being. In most cases racial profiling is a bad and unjustifiable act against an individual by his/her race, color, ethnicity. In today 's world we see many thing that can be related to racial profiling but in of the things that sticks out the most is a campaign called “ All Black lives matter”.BlackLivesMatter was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year old Trayvon was placed on trial for his own murder. African American made this campaign because they feel and they know that they being racially profiled by authority figures. In the article “The nation 's premier civil & human right coalition” written by The leadership Conference states “the data reveal that African-American motorists were 1.64 times more likely to be stopped than White drivers”.
The negativity and oppression that was put on the african americans from the kkk, was the reason why there was a change. Without them the oppression would of taken a lot longer to build up to get to a point where change was needed. The kkk did such bad things that they got on the news constantly and they were spreading such shocking negativity that random people decided to speak up, if they didn 't do these shocking things who knows how many people would of stayed hidden. They started the chain reaction. “Black Americans have typically been the Klan 's primary target, it also has attacked Jews, immigrants, gays and lesbians and, until recently, Catholics”(splcenter.org).They Didn 't just influence women 's rights, they killed african americans, they killed whites who supported the movement, they killed both genders, therefore they influenced both races, both male and female, and that 's why we believe they had the biggest impact, it was just in a negative way, people remember the bad things more than the good, we reminisce on the kkk because we need to learn from it and we continue to learn from it, so we won 't repeat history.
How Do the Cons of Racial Profiling Outnumber the Pros? In the U.S today, many cases involving racial profiling have occurred. In fact, the popular hashtag called “#blacklivesmatter” stemmed from the deaths cases and unfair treatment of minorities by police officers using racial profiling. Racial profiling can be described as “the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense”. Although there are some that deny it, racial profiling is widely practiced all over the U.S.
In today’s society, a person may not know but will tend to discriminate against someone who may seem different due to their skin color. This country has been living in a nation that has suffered years of abuse and racial segregation. The Charleston church shooting is the fundamental case in quite a while in which blacks genuinely were secured by a white individual as an ensuing consequence of their race. The Charleston strike was a loathsome, sickening wrongdoing. White-on-black crime is amazingly striking all over the place in America, close liberal inventive purposes of imprisonment.
And when the potential assailants of a crime were Black, US psychiatric and popular culture frequently blamed “Black Culture” or Black activist politics–not individual, disordered brains–for the threats such men imagined to pose” (2015, 244). It is great how the authors help shape the idea that it is obvious that the United States cultural tries to justify every crime and targets a certain group and labels them in order to control how the population thinks or sees a certain individual because they are not the “normal” American citizen. They help support this idea by providing evidence that shows it has been like this for years before now, it states in the article, “A number of historical documents suggest that racialized and gendered overtones also shaped 1960s-era associations between schizophrenia and gun violence in the United States” (Metzl & MacLeish 2015, 244). All of the supporting evidence helps explain why the society tends to assume that there is a certain type of person to look out for when it comes to crimes or gun-related
And this is true for them and the people in real life who hunt, mistreat, and even kill African American people they are all cowards, they don’t have honor. This prompts the realization of what is happening and the mob disperses and changes, just like what is needed to be done in the real life. This book is that speech, and its point is to get the masses to change and give the African-American their rights they truly
Profiling puts barriers between citizens of a different races because judging someone only by their race gives one a pre-fixed opinion, thus making it difficult to create diversity in a community full of racist people who have created negative images of people. Racial profiling can bring people down in both a financial and personal way which leads to more racial profiling because being affected in these ways encourages one to continue profiling others as they have anger building up which needs to be released. Supporters of racial profiling argue that the use of demographics, statistics, and, information to capture criminals is justified. Also, that if a group commits a crime, they should be stopped. However, critics of the practice argue that the idea of one group committing more crimes than other groups is just untrue, information also points to the idea that profiling is wrong, both legally and ethically.
If not addressed, it could even become just as worse. Eric Garner is just one of the many people caught in the crossfire of this terrible problem, and it is tearing this nation apart. It shows that everything is not right, and that we are not done with black oppression. The Tom Robinson and Eric Garner cases address a prevalent issue in America modern society: racism. Was Eric Garner a victim of racist oppression or a police mis-read of the situation?
I want to make an argument that racially-motivated police brutality is unfair. Police brutality is a use of unjustified force that can cause serious injury or even death. When it comes to situations where an unarmed black man was killed by a police officer, it hits the news fast and people pay more attention. The racism that comes from police is a sign of oppression to specific groups. This needs to come to attention because instead of reacting with public riots, we as a society need to be more proactive about changing the racism of police brutality.
