The defeat caused major rioting due to Jack Johnson being African American beating a white top heavyweight champion. The riots caused by the win of Jack Jefferies had hundreds of African Americans to be brutally mistreated and seriously injured. There are records shown that there were only 11-26 people killed during this riot. And so this influenced racial tension already believed to be existing in society. Before 1919, when World War 1, ending in the late 1918s the African Americans who had risked their lives fighting for freedom, and equal rights as the whites received the rights they deserved under the law.
Why do cops kill for no reason? In the month between May and June more than 4 people in every state was getting killed by a cop (Dilascio) .Police Brutality is excessive force or use of a weapon against a civilian. This issue is important to society because people need to know the law and how it works. Congress passed a law that really does not hold any weight it’s called “police misconduct” but this isn’t hitting the main point of Police Brutality. Police Brutality is wrong because people lose their lives or get beat and harmed from a simple arrest.
This is a ridiculous percentage and shows that police aren't doing anything to try to minimize this problem. There have been many cases that explain why these percentages are so high. For example, that of Amilcar Perez-Lopez, a 20 year old undocumented immigrant from Guatemala whom two, San Francisco police officers shot and killed on February 26. Police brutality doesn't only happen on lations, but also an African American like Michele Brown, who
Mass incarceration is the way that the United States has locked up millions of people over the last forty years using unnecessary and disproportionate policies. Contrary to popular belief, this is racially fueled as most of these policies saw to it that blacks and latinos be locked up for longer than their white peers and for smaller crimes. These racist roots within the system can be traced back to when the first slave ship arrived in the US. But our first major prison boom was seen after the American Civil war. I know that the Civil War was far more than forty years ago.
Throughout the entire letter, I feel Coates' disappointment; anger; and sadness. I feel that he wish he had another history to tell his son; to embrace some kind of hope in his son's future; to tell him that being black does not put his life in risk from being taken away. Coates knows that when his son soon or later will eventually start wondering about why he is being treated unfairly or different. He will begin to see the police brutality among his racial group; how many blacks of different ages get killed by the police just because they
The effects of slavery are still felt around the world today. In some countries, society treated the majority of people of African descent as second-class citizens up until the 21st century, and many argue that this still occurs today—with police brutality providing damning data showing that prejudice remains ingrained into society. In 2015, 40 percent of the unarmed people shot by police were black men, despite the fact that black men make up just 6 percent of the nation’s population (Lowery 1). Between 1525 and 1866 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World, however, historians estimate that only 10.7 million survived (Gates 1). These 2 million deaths are contributed to deplorable living conditions and savage masters.

Incarnation has been about black men Having a higher chance to go to federal state prisons and local jails than whites. Their health hasn't been been great either because they have to wait 99 minutest to be taken care of. Then finally their payment, blacks are usually paid $35,416 while whites are being paid $59,754.
One race will say they are being treated unfairly and will break and end up in riots, or other disruptive activities. Then at the riots the Law Enforcement shows up and one of the officers is the same color as them. Yes there are racist people, but not every Law Enforcement officer is, so don’t wouldn’t go assuming the worst in the people that you nor I have met. There are about 900,000 Sworn Law Enforcement officers serving now in the United States, and about 12 percent of those are women! Since the death of the

Though many people worry about being stopped by the police, the African-American community will worry the most. Though the African-American community isn 't the only crowd to pick on, this community will worry the most compared to any other community. Asian, Hispanic/ Latino and the white community will also worry, those within the Hispanic/ Latino community would be able to comprehend on how the African-American community may feel if one of their brother(s) or sister(s) has been injured or killed due to an innocent

The backlogs of rape kits throughout the United States has become an overwhelming number while the crime labs have been doing very little to compensate for these changes.
