Immigration is already a top issue in the 2016 presidential race, as it was in the previous election cycles. In 2012, harsh rhetoric dramatically affected the Republican Party’s appeal with Hispanic and Asian voters. In a result, the Republican lost over seventy percent of that vote in the presidential race. Looking toward the 2016 election, Trumph’s immigration rhetoric leaves Latino Population feeling disenfranchised. Of course, Trump is not the only Republican candidate who has been spouting anti-immigrant rhetoric, but he has been one of the most vocal and vitriolic.
Especially African Americans, but in our recent history we have up all race crimes. I think this is due to the things our political leaders are saying. Many of them are trying to help, but they also say some racist things that ignite race wars. (Fighting for freedom) Many of our mass shootings in that occurs because of police shootings are because of race. There is wrong on both sides, but a majority of the time is black on white shooting, whether is the cop killing the citizen or the citizen killing the cop.
Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
This paper is focus on the racial inequality of crime rate in the criminal justice system. Also, it argues the different treatment of black and white groups in the criminal justice system. Moreover, it shows the relationship of black males with crime rate. The black males face high crime rate than white males in the criminal justice system. However, in relation to police relations, the police stop black males more frequently than white males.
The percentage shows that most of the time the suspect is someone else who commits the crime or it is a racial crime. There is a huge difference between the justice system now comparing it to back in the day. Now the law enforcement and the justice system have more resources to make sure that every evidence they have is accurate. According to NBC News, 93 percent are men, and 7% are women; about 50% are African American 38% are white , 2% are Asian and 11% are Hispanic. This tells us that more black man might be in danger of getting charged with false confession compare to any other
Communities will be able to see when cops are right or when they are wrong. After the results of a poll called “Race and Reality in America,” it is an acknowledgement that we have a race problem. According to the report, a large majority of minorities say that whether an incident in which an unarmed person is harmed or killed by police is videotaped plays a major role in whether or not the police officer or officers are charged for the crime (CNN Wire). A tangible solution, however, is to put body cameras on all cops. Most blacks feel like they are discriminated against when it comes to police brutality, because they are a minority.
It is responsible, along with Texas Senator Ted Cruz, for the debt ceiling crisis in 2011 and the government shutdown in 2012. Groups like the Freedom Caucus are in every corner of the Republican Party, and they drive Party divisions and infighting. As a result of that infighting, far-right groups have gained considerable power, and are now an important constituency in national elections. That important constituency, with its newfound voice, demands far-right candidates. And Donald Trump fits the bill
According to the article, “Why Police Kill Black Males”, Gilbert and Rashan state, “The criminalization of black males has a long history in the USA, which has resulted in an increase in policing behaviors by legal authorities” (Gilbert and Rashan). They also assert that black males in America have been stereotyped as violent criminals, felons, drug dealers and sexual predators (Gilbert and Rashan). Even more striking is the claim by Matthew Hughley in his article which appeared in Critical Sociology, that the criminal justice system has evolved the ideology that blacks have an inherent predisposition to commit crime (Hughey 857). Sadly, black males are perceived as threats even when they are unarmed. Hughey supports this assertion when he states, “Black Americans who are fatally shot by police are, in fact, less likely to be posing an imminent lethal threat to the officers at the moment they are killed than white Americans fatally shot by police” (Hughey 859).
Often when blacks commit a crime, the media tends to paint them as gangsters or thugs. These types of instances of bad reporting associates negative stereotypes with a certain groups. In order to end the stereotypes the media needs to do a better job reporting in a way that is unbiased. Most people get
