Those who steal are not punished by being stolen from. We should not, therefore, punish the murderer with death... Capital Punishment is a barbaric remainder of an uncivilized society." (Should the Death Penalty n. pag.) A society that respects life should not also be the one who is taking it.
In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justiﬁcation for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don’t. Rather than directly rely on race, we use the criminal justi... ... middle of paper ... ...system that has existed in the United States or anywhere else in the world” (Alexander 234). W.E.B. Dubois argued that “The burden belongs to the nation, and the hands of none of us are clean if we bend not our energies to righting these great wrongs” (Alexander 217).
Who has the right to take away someone’s life? No one really, but the bitter truth is that the government does. The way they see it is an eye for an eye. Protecting the rest of the world from what is considered to be a monstrous human being filled with only hatred and violence, with no chance of changing or improving their horrific behaviors. The death penalty is racially and economically biased, rarely reversed for the wrongly accused, and the government should not have that power.
Which could be totally wrong because there might have been shot despite their innocence.Thus, Racial Profiling it self is a contradiction because it’s used to protect the nation but it’s not constitutional. Moreover, this racial profiling is the one who is contradicting the most important basis of the nation, which is “All men are created equal.” Therefore the racial profiling, itself is the infringement of the constitution, because it is not providing people with the equal treatment but in fact it is causing a reason why we should not treat the colored or muslims, just as people would treat the whites. There was this practice done by NYPD, which was the “stop and frisk.” This enabled NYPD to arrest many black and hispanics, just because they looked like terrorists. Fortunately this tactic was judged unconstitutional by the court, so it’s no longer present (Vaughan, Bernard). The Racial profiling is definitely a violation of right of privacy and also security, therefore it should not be no longer around.
African Americans, Asians, Mexicans, and Indians shouldn’t be judged by the pigment of their skin color, instead we shouldn’t be judging at all. Judge mentation is the wrong thing to do. We judge others before judging out selves, we have to think for others actions before our own actions. We attack the ones weaker than us, and hurt the one who love us. If we can manage the way we use segregation in modern day society, there would be less deaths and violence in humanity if we watch what we say that harms others.
George Bush, exclaimed “Racial profiling is wrong, and we will end it in America. In so doing, we will not hinder the work of our nation's brave police officers. They protect us every day -- often at great risk. But by stopping the abuses of a few, we will add to the public confidence our police officers earn and deserve. (2/27/2001)" We should start to notice that racial discrimination/profiling is not going to progress America, it should be eliminated in any way.
Arizona’s immigration law should be abolished because it creates racial profiling in society. This law is encouraging racism problem to increase because without this law our country already has to face with so many problems about racism. Come back to Arizona’s immigration law, I wonder how officer can stop each individual with the reasonable suspicions exits that someone is illegal immigrants. Will it base on people with color skin or people who cannot speak English? The answer should be yes, because the law allow officer can stop each individual just base on their perceptions.
5. Malcolm X used methods of resistance that pushed the U.S. government away, joining g... ... middle of paper ... ...that African-Americans should be taking. 14. Even if Civil Rights legislation were to take hold, Malcolm X argued that the only circumstance under which it would be enforced would be a police state: if the government was in explicit control of the lives of U.S. citizens. Otherwise, in his opinion, legislative change would be completely ineffective, and in stating this, he reinforced his standpoint that legislative change was the wrong course of action.
From this perspective Souza continuously degrade the fact that racism still exist. According to Souza’s view, racism cannot be the blame for most of the contemporary struggles African Americans face. Souza strongly believe that even if racism goes away, African Americans will continue to seek hand outs and make excuses. Such as, kids growing up in single parent households, excessively long predominately black welfare lines, and inner city crimes. Souza goes to the degree of being irrational when he states that he want a repeal of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Collier decided that Ellison needed the experience of killing a man and that he should be the one to end the mans life. As Collier slaps Ellison and wrestles him into position to fire a bullet straight into the prisoner 's head, the man pulls out photos of his wife and children, begging for his life. Ellison closes his eyes tightly, and refuses to take hold of the gun, he goes on about how there is absolutely no way he can take this mans life. Collier is fed up with his newbie acting innocent in a time of life or death situations. He decided it 's time for Ellison to learn a
