Social media has become a popular tool for both criminals and law enforcement. There are a lot of different perspectives about how social media is instrumental to crime and solving crimes. On one hand, law enforcement can use social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter to find evidence about specific crimes. On the other hand, digital villains can use social media to break the law. This could include crimes as small as illegally downloading music, anywhere upwards to broadcasting the selling of drugs.
For the past few years there has been an ongoing debate surrounding the issue of racial profiling. The act of racial profiling may rest on the assumption that African Americans and Hispanics are more likely to commit crimes than any individual of other races or ethnicities. Both David Cole in the article "The Color of Justice" and William in the article "Road Rage" take stance on this issue and argue against it in order to make humanity aware of how erroneous it is to judge people without evidence. Although Cole and William were very successful in matters of showing situations and qualitative information about racial profiling in their articles, both of them fail at some points. In the article Road Rage, Williams does a good job trying to make society aware of the racial profiling problem and also trying to make each citizen more conscious about its consequences through communities all over the world.
In todays, news African Americans are being treated unfairly compared to any other demographic groups. America is the greatest country in the world, but it is difficult to believe that being in the 21st century racism still does exist. For instance, when it was time to remove the confederate flag, some demographic groups had a hard time letting go. People who argue that “blue lives matter,” which states that police are justified when using force and being unfair. These reasons are not justifiable enough to kill someone.
What needs to be understood according to Alexander is that blacks can be successful, but that still doesn’t erase the fact that blacks stand for the majority of incarcerated people in this country. It think this is a very important point that unfortunately is very true. A lot of people live in denial over the fact that racism is still an ongoing issue in this country, all over the world matter a fact. I believe that the
If you support this side, you believe these words correlate with the unneeded and over excessive use of police brutality against African Americans compared to police brutality against whites, bringing racism soaring back into the US. As you may know, the statement became more predominant after the murder of African Americans
Johnson’s article argues that the implicit bias against African Americans exists observably today. Although Johnson is an African American, his result of the IAT exposes that he also has slight contempt for his own race. In his words, racism happens to black people and through black people simultaneously. The stereotypes that demean black people have also caused them to look down on their own race, and further lead the growth of implicit bias for every American person (Johnson). Furthermore, the implicit bias does not only apply to discrimination against African Americans.
The race industry will proclaim that it is because of discrimination against blacks. Before Senator Barack Obama was nominated President, he spoke on Martin Luther King Day and made the following statement: “blacks and whites are arrested at very different rates, are convicted at very different rates, [and] receive very different sentences ... for the same crime” (Mac Donald, 2008, p. 15). However, statistics show that this is simply not the case. When public speakers make claims like this without any information to back it up, it only hurts the case for an equal criminal justice system. On surface level, one may start to believe that it is plausible that the criminal justice system is racist because blacks and whites are incarcerated at very different rates.
Police work can be fairly racial because it follows and reflects the behaviors of society, meaning that it continues to support and further the racial divide between social and economic classes. Given that this is America, the social and economic classes are still divided, partially due to racism, because it is still very present in this society. Regarding the conflict view of racially-based police brutality, there are a couple hypotheses that could be made. One suggests that police violence is higher in cities with more non-white residents. Another statement that could be made is that it is lower in cities with a higher income or a smaller income gap between
In today 's society, discrimination tackles a wide range of structures, from gender inequality to the social class. Everyday people are looked down upon because of their skin or because they may have different beliefs. Racism has been something that has been going on, and has laws passed as a result of it. Despite the fact that laws have been passed due to racism, it still happens today. The generation today, is more open to various races, and as a result of that we have a black president.
Another large misconception of the Black Lives Matter is that the people that are a part of the BLM movement do not care or consider black-on-black crime. The people that are a part of the BLM movement realize that there is a crime problem among black people; however, they do not believe that Black people are more violent than other races. The BLM movement says that because African Americans are in poorer communities compared to white people they are more susceptible to be targeted by police and arrested more often than
