Racial profiling should not even exist as far as I am concerned because it strictly promotes labeling among minorities. Just because someone may look different does not mean that they are up to no good. Racial profiling is used on everyone except white people which automatically makes it unfair. The police have developed this tool in such an unfair way that it completely promotes this problem of unfair treatment. This problem will not get any better until
Racism is a cultural bias pertaining to the belief that there is a distinct human race and that one race is superior to another. Developed by Europeans to justify their enslavement of the ‘Others’, they have maintained racial tendencies and attempts to dehumanize colored people as ‘savage’ and uncivilized to support their inflicted maltreatment of them. Racism is real. Though many strides have been made in efforts to exact the devastation imposed on colored peoples’ dignity and rights to liberty, communal relations remain stained. Just as we live in a world where even visas have varying values, discrimination has become an undeniable reality – hindrances to playful world traveling.
However, what they fail to see is that it’s a social fabrication. In America, there’s a singularity where some individuals have advantages because of their skin color, while unfortunately others are victimized for the equivalent reason. The deep-rooted controversy of inequality and prejudice has insinuated the social fabric in our American society and government, as African Americans still experience discrimination on all levels until today, but society seems to be blind to that fact. As mentioned in the article “Redesigning Racial Caste in America via Mass Incarceration” written by Gilda Graff, “The extent of America’s continuing blindness to the New Jim Crow can be seen in the presidential nominee Obama’s 2008 Father’s Day address about missing black fathers, a message delivered many times by black ministers as well as by Bill Cosby, Sidney Poitier, and Louis Farrakhan” (126). As an example Kimberly Houzah, a twenty-seven-year-old woman was kicked out of a Victoria Secret store at the Quintard Mall in Oxford, Alabama.
A cause of corruption, discrimination and inequality, the cause of death of many innocent lives. Throughout the long history, racism has been a subject of much debate, most notably in The United states of America. There have been numerous actions that suggest that racial inequality might still be intact with America’s modern society, such as the extreme violence shown by the police that has been roaming all over social media recently. This has eventually led to the creation of the controversial “Black lives matter” group. “Black lives matter” is an organization is an international activist campaign that disapproves of violence towards the African -American community.
Chapter seven dealt extensively with race and racial prejudice, issues that most people would like to see eradicated, but some still believe to be ever present. Souryal’s literature, which deals with real life situations as well as theory behind it, presents some interesting but unfortunate cases where people are mistreated or biased against for nothing more than their race. Racial prejudice is wrong and shouldn’t have any bearing on the justice system, but unfortunately—due to things like racial profiling—there are still cases where a precedent is set and police act, either consciously or unconsciously, against minorities instead of criminals. Strange concepts, such as justifiable inequality, were explained—this, in particular, was a concept I knew nothing about before reading Souryal’s chapter on it. The chapter also went into great depth about serious issues like discrimination and stereotyping, especially how stereotypes about minorities, which are perpetrated by a very small percentage of them, lead to police misconduct and police stereotypes that hurt many upstanding citizens who are black or Latino.
National identity, itself is often difficult to conceive, but can only be explained in terms of racial. US national identity is sadly a combination of external and internal racisms. External racism occurs when powerful racial groups aim to remove the weak racial groups from schools, jobs, neighborhoods, and social spaces. Native people are likely to experienced external racism—being treated as foreign invaders. By contrast, internal racisms occur when powerful groups subordinate the weak racial groups in order to maintain their standard of living.
Today’s world is basically run by the media itself or social media. Racial profiling is a very sensitive topic nowadays to many people. This topic really falls heavy under discrimination. Discrimination is where there is unfair treatment to people because of their group membership. (Brym, 2013) The thing is about races is that there’s so much stereotypes about them.
People should not be targeted just because of their race or color. In our societies, Racism has only gotten worse because of the lack of education that is globally happening. The theme of interdependence is shown clearly because if one person supports a stereotype then it influences others, because the main group depends on individuals to participate on continuing
Discrimination refers to unjustifiable behaviour towards a group of people, whether it be due to their age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnical orientation. Correll et al (2010) defines discrimination as ‘behaviour directed towards category members that is consequential for their outcomes and that is directed towards them, not because of any particular deservingness or reciprocity but simply because they happen to be members of that category. ’ Everyone has a right to equality before the law and to be protected from discrimination. Despite this, people all around the world are discriminated against every day. Such discrimination has even resulted in policies of ethnical cleansing and genocide.
. The tragic death of Garner, and the story of Robinson can make a huge impact on society if applied right. Both stories show the bad blood from old to modern society. Racism is still here, even though it’s not public it 's ingrained the mines of the people today. Stereotyping and setting people in groups is how the minds of today are programmed.
