You could never know who you need in the end. Looking these situations, the cops quickly judged the victims because they were in a categorized group. We all tend to judge someone that has something different about them. Racial profiling can be unfair and unreasonable. It has been with us since slavery, but people have been ignoring the issue.
Administrative Detention is any arrest of individuals by the state without a trial. This is mainly used for security purposes for people such as terrorist. Even though they have racial profiling laws, people who are not white are more susceptible to be humiliated and targeted.

By disobeying these laws lead to the criticism of others and often lead to people thinking that they are immoral to disobey the laws that are set in order to protect the land. This often leads to controversy among people on whether who is right and who is wrong.

It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely. However, the Council in Anthem has forbidden individual thoughts. They worked to create a society where everyone is supposedly defined as equal. These rules cause Equality to believe he is evil for not being able to prevent his individual thoughts.

Both Civil Disobedience and the Gandhi article are alike based on the fact they both discuss civil disobedience, attending prison, and standing for one’s beliefs. Civil disobedience can be seen as a good thing and a bad thing depending on to what extent one is breaking the laws. Some people may break the law because they feel that it is unfair to them but others break the for the simple fact of doing what they want in order for it to benefit themselves.

Although society needs “more accountability, not less”, the accountability they need is not rising to be hypocrites. While others believe that the accountability needed is in receiving zero forgiveness for any mistake, society needs to not turn their heads and ignore those who have done wrong. Society needs to open the door of forgiveness instead of being hypocrites who draw on scornful responses to mistakes they have done before like they eventually did with Malcolm X who reaccumulated into society. Those who hated Malcolm were hypocrites who couldn’t look past the color of his skin. Hypocrisy is found in society and is the root of the problems regarding hateful actions to forgiving situations.

This consequently causes their peers to believe that these people should not be given the trust to vote on such widespread, controversial issues. Now, although the people with these concerns make a valid and alarming point they fail to understand that voting not only helps instill a sense of responsibility within prior-felons lives but it also helps with their rehabilitation process as well, targeting the psychological aspect of helping these men and women succeed. Christopher Uggen, professor of sociology and law at the university of Minnesota asserts in the article “Why should felons vote” that “ if those who argue that people with felony convictions shouldn 't be allowed to vote because they are untrustworthy in character . . . should we exclude admitted racists or, taking that argument even further, perhaps people who
As citizens of America, we are taught to believe that we are going to be protected by the police and the constitution. In reality the police that are on beat and the courts are finding ways to violate our constitutional rights. Police are finding ways to violate our fourth amendment rights in such ways that makes civilians second guessing whether they are here to serve and protect or just to meet a certain quota. Stop and frisk was implemented to stop the crimes that are on the streets but, instead they are causing racial profiling by the police to African Americans and Latinos. The police are over using and abusing “Stop and Frisk” so they can make arrest and to put fear into young adult’s life.
Shannon Sharpe is describing the events displayed on television, newspapers, and on the internet. Although, most people in America will state that racial profiling by law enforcement is minorities complaining based on statistics or perception (Racial Profiling, 2016 ). Thus, racial profiling by law enforcement agencies prevents useful approaches, alienates communities, and impedes public safety (Hubpages and Hubbers, 2009). Prevents Useful Approaches Racial profiling distracts law enforcement agencies from using useful approaches.
After reading the article “Jim Crow Policing” by Bob Herbert, I agree with the author that the New York police should stop harass the Black and the Hispanic for no reason. In the article, the author gives the data of the percent of stops that yielded the weapon. The percent of Black and Hispanics have weapon is less than that of the white. It shows that the Black and Hispanics have different color does not mean they are more likely to commit a crime. The police in New York have a degrading way that affect the Black and Hispanics because it seems they only base on their skin color and race to treat the people.
Becoming president of the United States is one of the highest positions a citizen can earn and it is spot of outrageous power and influence. However, as the saying goes “with great power, comes great responsibility” and that responsibility includes conducting yourself in an appropriate manner. This ability seems to elude America’s current presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The controversy surrounding this candidate and has turned this election campaign from a respectable event to a skit gone wrong.
