Sociological Theories Of Violence

453 Words2 Pages
The sociological theories I would apply to the violence that has been occurring in the U.S the last couple months would have to be the conflict theory, and lacks functionalism. The lack of functionalism in a sense causes more violence. Without a society working together, they are more likely to work against each other. In the last few months of all the innocent African Americans being killed, more and more people are starting to unite and protest to achieve justice. The only problem is violence coming about can not be the only time a group works together. It needs to be consistent. I believe the conflict has to apply because it is all about inequality in a society, which is nothing new today and can been seen in many events that have occurred.
