All these people, these humans, innocent people just like everybody else, are steadily being forced into slavery, some right now. Is anybody aware that 3,827 people per day are being sold or kidnapped into slavery? Sex trafficking is one of the many forms of slavery still happening in America today. “Sex trafficking is a crime when women, men and/or children are forcefully involved in commercial sex acts.
The Trans-Atlantic slave trade was responsible for the forced migration of between 12 to 15 million people. From Africa to the Western Hemisphere, the slave trade not only displaced millions of Africans to a life of exploitation, but also a painful death. Nobody knew the total number of people who died during slavery in Africa. The Atlantic slave trade Many died a slowly painful death during transportation and imprisonment, or in horrendous conditions during the Middle Passage. The voyage from Africa to the Americas was horrifying and painful for the slaves so many slaves considered suicide as an option.
Poverty has become a serious problem in most developing countries across the globe because of numerous factors such as natural disasters, poor leadership, war and ethnic strive. The Federal poverty chart revels that almost sixty percent of Nigeria’s population of more than one hundred and fifty million individuals are drastically poor (Osedar, 2006). According to (Nkwede, 2006) most poor people settle mainly in rural areas, which parenthetically is the basic reason for the rural-urban migration in Nigeria. Indubitably, as the youths from the rural areas move to the urban area in search of white collar jobs this has many ramifications on the administration and development of a cosmopolitan government. Such consequences for the rural-urban migration are over population of public space and an increased level of corruption.
The largest Human trafficking problems are forced labour, abduction and abuse of child, illegal migration, prostitution, people and drug smuggling and trafficking of tissue, cells and organs of human being. Human trafficking has truly become a global threat to vulnerable men, women, and children worldwide. It is a dirty deal that affects millions of people every year on every continent and at all socioeconomic levels. In Pakistan most uncertain issues of human trafficking are abduction and abuse of child, illegal migration with forced labour, prostitution. It has terrible effects on victim’s mental, physical and social life.
Additionally, poverty-stricken citizens are at a major disadvantage due to the presence of payoffs and bribes throughout their trial. These citizens on trial have spent most of their lives in unfortunate situations, going days on end without food, water, or shelter; all basic needs for survival. Because of this arduous upbringing, it’s likely that justice will not take a high priority because of the money involved. The gap between the wealthy and the impoverished will continue to grow, increasing the amount of people who will be at a disadvantage in our justice system due to their lack of wealth. With the death penalty still in place, these citizens will certainly be subjected to an unfair trial, like how Edward Elmore’s initial trial took only eight days.
Due to their deficiency of proper schooling, they cannot obtain jobs that require any type of higher education. Thus, the drug dealers are left with service sector jobs that pay little over minimum wage. While some service sector jobs require manual labor skills, a large part of jobs require interpersonal skills—something the crack dealers are familiar with in the streets, but do not comprehend in an office setting. In particular, attitude is a key deciding factor of success or failure in the workplace. Since the drug dealers Bourgois writes about are so accustomed to street culture, they do not understand how to adjust their attitudes on the job.
The documentary Darwin’s Nightmare focuses on the issues and exploitation which plagued underdeveloped African countries but mainly focuses on Tanzania by showing how the people of the developed countries utilize, take control and gain the wealth of the poorer countries. The documentary makes it perfectly clear about what hardships the Tanzanian people face daily such as prostitution, hunger, homelessness, corruption like the illegal weapons that are being traded in Lake Victoria, and pollution. On the other hand Paul Collier gives an insight on why the poorest countries fail and what can be done about it. There is also Jeffery Sachs who explains his eight reasons for economic failure. Undeveloped countries like Tanzania facing the stagnation
INTRODUCTION Human trafficking is the contemporary practice of human slavery. Some victims of human trafficking live without proper health care and unaware of their bodily status. Some live with addictions. Some live with an education cut short. However, it is essential for one to note that the victims of human trafficking are not consenting women in aquamarine disco boots eager to make a dime aware of the misfortune they may soon face.
A woman cannot go to jail for wearing a certain dress but a man can for sexual assault, yet the man hardly ever goes to jail and the woman is held responsible for provoking assault. In any sexual assault case, women are both physically and mentally abused by their offender and the opinions of others. The eternal damage that comes along with being a raped victim leads to many disorders and like the actual rape case itself, is not taken seriously. A woman is much more affected than just "unwanted sex" that takes place and the
This thought totally wrong and hurtful because it will makes the victims difficult to speak out and more likely to blame themselves. The examples of sexual abuse are rough sexual activity, rape and forcible sodomy either oral or anal sex. Sexual harassment may be verbal, non
It is an acknowledgement Black poverty and genocide is state violence. It is an acknowledgment that 1 million Black people are locked in cages in this country–one half of all people in prisons or jails–is an act of state violence. It is an acknowledgment that Black women continue to bear the burden of a relentless assault on our children and our families and that assault is an act of state violence.” Undeniably, the black people have many more struggles in their lives compared to their white peers. It is a historical problem as well as a serious social issue.
Malaria occurs when blood parasites of an infected mosquito are transmitted from human to human. According to an article, “A child dies every minute from malaria in Africa where it is estimated that 9 out of 10 malaria deaths occur” (“World Health,” par. 3). Africa has become known for malaria deaths, but also that it kills an African child every minute. With the majority of Africa’s population being children, they become the victims of most diseases because they have the weakest immune systems. Malaria is known as a leading cause of sickness for children.
Sexual assault is a very controversial issue in our society. The video by Mini Law, Understanding Sexual Assault Law, gives a detailed overview of Sexual Assault Law. It is presented by Professor Elaine Craig, from the Schulich School of Law. In her presentation she explains that the fundamentals of sexual assault law are the definition of sexual assault, definition of consent and rules of evidence. Overall, Sexual Assault Law in Canada is flawed and there is a lot of reform that must still be done.
In the prison system, inmates rely on prison guards for essential goods, which is why the women feel they have no choice but to suffer their abuse. Because these women feel helpless, there are no truly accurate statistics that can tell the specific amount of black women abused in prison. The lack of information is also because most jails don’t keep proper records of the various abuses women report (Isaac, Lockhart, Williams). This proves that these prisons do not care about the well being of these women, nor do they care that the sexual offenders are properly punished.
“Lynching was the most severe and the most common punishment for any trivial offence, even after liberation from slavery. Lynching was enforced on the blacks for “ridiculous charges as standing too close to the street to a white person or being too friendly with a white person” (2012, p. 36). Sakthi and Thangarai (2012) states that, “Discrimination in employment and occupation takes many forms and occurs in all kinds of work settings. It entails treating people differently because of certain characteristics, such as race, color or sex, which results in the impairment of equality of opportunity and treatment. In other words, discrimination results in, and reinforces, inequalities.
