Some bullies act they way they do because they have been hurt by bullies in the past even a parent or another adult. Some bullies actually have personality disorders that don’t allow them to understand normal emotions like guilt, empathy, compassion, or remorse. I think that schools need to do more about bullying. It affects many kids and keeps them from wanting to go to school to get an education. It would make victims feel better about themselves.
Many people think different when it comes to treating teenagers once they commit a crime. Folks think that their brain is not fully developed, but they sure do know what they are doing. If teenagers have the capability to commit a crime, there must be something between that made them act the way they did. Many blame parents for their child’s actions because they think that the kids learn from parents. For example, bad behavior, drug abuse, rape, murder, etc., but teenagers should learn from their parents mistakes.
Within the criminal justice system, people of color are imprisoned disproportionately due to racist laws, are denied access to the rehabilitative options given to Whites, and are harassed and mistreated by U.S. agencies. Although people of color commit most crimes at the same rate as Whites, the unequal targeting and treatment of people of color throughout the criminal justice system from arrest to sentencing results in the disproportionate imprisonment of people of color. The criminal justice system has driven a wedge between black men and society. African American men are involved in the criminal justice system, whether though incarceration, probation, or parole, at near epidemic levels. At the same time, the criminal justice system has encouraged and persisted in racial and discriminatory actions continuing the emancipation of blacks from society.
Children that are spanked also develop hate for their guardians growing up which causes them to despise them even when they become adults, some children even wish for their guardian’s to die as a result of the long term abuse. No child should ever wish for any physical h... ... middle of paper ... ...hey will show love to others, but when we use corporal punishment on them they will view others as nothing more than people who need to be physically punished. In today’s society corporal punishment is becoming more and more unpopular as a choice of punishment, compared to the early 20th century where it was practiced in many households. But more work still has to be done to make sure a child never has to live in fear of getting spanked for reasons unknown to them. Children will make mistakes and bad decisions, but that is part of growing up.
I believe they grow up in tough cities and lack opportunities that whites have. Alexander states, “once again, vagrancy laws and other laws defining activities such as mischief and insulting gestures as crimes were enforced vigorously against blacks” (Alexander 31). Throughout history, many can notice African Americans are placed on the lower end of the spectrum. This is due to one factor only, skin color. Many people are prejudiced against the black men, as seen in recent issues cops are specifically tough on the black
Tom Robinson knew that he was innocent and so did Atticus but ... ... middle of paper ... ... a very hard job because most of the people in maycomb county and the county's all believe that blacks are bad and they should be punished for their race. This is true because people in the city believe that blacks are bad for the community and they should have to be put in jail if they are accused and they might not be guilty, but they are still thrown in jail because of the outside appearance color of their skin. Telling people in maycomb sometimes shows racial jokes while blacks are selfish people, and they should just be put in jail for being selfish. I would hate to always be picked on because what color of my skin I was, or if people to make racial comments that maybe I am small, or like they don't like my racial background. I still believe that people all over the world should just come together and share what they know about racial discrimination.
Lack of education and basic protective services for women and children exacerbates the problem. And add to that the heavy burden of drug addiction and abuse. The society they were born in shaped how they view their lives and the options that they had. If urban black American communities continued to be such a place, then everyone, not only the blacks would be hopeless and tremble for the future (Baldwin in O’Daniel).

However, we do have the Black Lives Matter Movement it does go against violence but it also plays a role in racism cause it mainly the color of your skin that have so many people murder, die, didn’t get justice for because we are African American which is not fair to us or what we stand for. Many disadvantages either with life or employment, education, safety it normal for African Americans to get out in the street and fight for what is right. In the passage “Racism is for Assholes Holt” stated that black and brown people built United States as a whole so for us to be treated less than what we deserve really disappointing, frustrating, make you feel less then yourself like your weak then most race when you accomplish major history events for this country. Just a few structures that African Americans invented and it feature in the article “6 Historic Structures In America Built By Slaves” not a very happy title the most historical ones is The White House, U.S. Capital Building. Now those are building for business for decisions being made in this country but no one will ever know because we don’t get credit for most work that has been in from many years
For many of the people of color featured in Stevenson’s book, the justice system was unfair to them wrongfully or excessively punishing them for crimes both violent and nonviolent compared to their white counterparts. Racism towards those of color has caused a “lack of concern and responsiveness by police, prosecutors, and victims’ services providers” and ultimately leads to the mass incarceration of this population (Stevenson, 2014, p. 141). Moreover the lack of diversity within the jury system and those in power plays into the already existing racism. African-American men are quickly becoming disenfranchised in our country through such racist biases leading to over 1/3 of this population “missing” from the overall American population because they are within the criminal justice
Racism plagues our world and even though it isn’t as out spoken and public as it was before it still lingers in our society. Not greed, nor abandonment, nor selfishness, nor ignorance affects people such as racism does. It makes people feel inferior over something they can’t really control before their birth; they didn’t have a choice about their race, or religion, or wealth, or location. Then to make someone feel unwanted or unequal based upon those qualities is appalling. Racism can destroy, severely alter, and even end people’s lives as shown in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee with Tom Robinson, Scout Finch, and Bob Ewell.
