Another example to illustrate Padilla’s thesis is rivalry among other gangs. Their gangs were under constant threat of invasion and take-over by other gangs.

Harris works and lives in the inner-city streets where the drug dealers overrun the city. Harris’ personal beliefs and sense of justice are a result of his life experiences with criminals and drug dealers.

In James McBride's essay “Hip Hop Planet,” he argues that hip hop has a negative influence on American Culture despite people thinking of it as inspirational and how people live through different experiences in life despite of your race. Firstly, McBride claims that rappers use violent lyrics as a vehicle to bring about awareness and thus promote social change through use of violence. In a section of the essay, he talks about how rappers have made hip-hop go from something you would hear at a party to something you would hear in a local news report because rappers use violent lyrics in order to talk about the issue in their society and how these issues must be acted upon now so that it can
The perception of the shadow would be the worst threat to society. A wild savage who must be monitored or incarcerated for the safety of the world. Black men in the media are seldomly shown to be powerful and successful rather they are shown to be thugs and aggressive criminals. These ideas are the reason why police officers can use blackness alone to say they are threatened enough to draw their weapon upon arrest or be more physical, which led to the multiple cases of fatal police brutality against black men such as Philando Castile, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner. The most honored black men in the media are athletes but had they not been gifted with supreme athletic talent they’d still be victim to people clutching their belongings a little tighter next to them on the train or a stop and frisk from a cop who think he sees a “suspicious
The negativity and oppression that was put on the african americans from the kkk, was the reason why there was a change. Without them the oppression would of taken a lot longer to build up to get to a point where change was needed. The kkk did such bad things that they got on the news constantly and they were spreading such shocking negativity that random people decided to speak up, if they didn 't do these shocking things who knows how many people would of stayed hidden.

The Outsiders A villain is an “evil character in a story, whether a historical narrative or, especially a work of fiction. The villain usually is the antagonist, the character who tends to have a negative effect on other characters” (Web). In S.E. Hinton’s book, The Outsiders, the villains are the members of the gang called the Socs. Their rival gang is the Greasers and their hatred for them fuels their villainous actions.

Depending on who you ask, what one considers police abuse of power, another may not. Today, regardless of many views to its legal contrast to police organizations, abuse of police power can be realized in forms of action such as verbal, harassment, false arrest, assault, excessive use of force, and illegal killings. However, regardless of what one considers, when those consistent actions of abuse by the police become the norm, it not only creates abuse, but also a stigma towards the police. Police harassment, use of excessive force and/or deadly force is destroying police-minority community relations. The consistent abuse of power by police within the same communities often raises question of protection of life and liberty.
