He has given permission for cops to feel suspicious if black people go into a white community. It has shown that the law enforcement has violated the state policy over prohibition of racial profiling. This source has demonstrated that people will go so far to keep their job and not even own up to what they did. One of the aspects I have on white cops is even though they know it is wrong to use racial profiling ,because they hide the evidence, they still do it to the extent. It helped me better understand my topic with an example from today and proving that racial profiling does happen in our world and we need to fix it.
As expected, his opinion on police training and racial tension differs from the opinions above. “Personally, everyone has racially profiled another person. But when cops do it it 's worthy of a public shaming. It 's a part of the job,” said Hall-Walker. “I don 't think its law enforcement vs. African Americans.
In Arrest Development, James B. Forman Argues that, “Blacks are usually the victims of racial profiling; he also argues that unlike the Republican leaders, the Democratic leaders have publicly denouncing racial profiling. Forman believes that racial profiling, turn the police against minorities instead of for them; moreover racial profiling corrupts the effect of equal treatment under the law.” (qtd in Crime and Criminals, 2004). “Racial profiling is not a crime”, stated John Derbyshire who is a novelist, and contributing editor. According to him, it has been statically proven that black men are criminals and they are not always the victims; therefore, racial profiling is a tool used by police to convict
They explain that every person has his own preference and methods, so some personal bias is inevitable during investigation. On the other hand, most victims do not think in this way, since African Americans define racial profiling differently. They state that, as long as race or color becomes a factor, they are treated unfairly, because race or color can’t indicate anything related to crime. As a result, the absent of a comprehensive understanding about racial profiling prevents people from really solving the problem. Each side of the argument will have a feeling that they are the real innocent people.
After years of effort and fights against inequality, slavery was abolished and with this hope the idea of “racism”. Yet, what will it take for a society to be free of racism? Both TA-Nehisi Coates in his essay “The Racist, Good People” and Halford H. Fairchild in his newspaper commentary “Modern-Day Racism Masks Its Ugly Head”, argue that racism is the contemporary issue in society that must be addressed. Coates depicts the inequality between races by showing the struggles of people of color and identification. He argues that Black men could be stopped and asked for identification anywhere, while it seems strange for a police officer to do the same to any white man.
For example, Loewen mentions that nine of eighteen books do list racism, racial discrimination, or race prejudice in their indexes. However, Dr. Jendian explained that in several books these concepts never appear in their text. This means we have molded our concepts about African Americans to rationalize our actions. Inclusively, Dr. Cornel West explains in his interview that white people have lived in a bubble because they lack exposure and experience, so racism and discrimination do not affect them. Yet, for the first time, according to Dr. Cornel West, “[White Americans felt] unsafe, unprotected, subject to random violence, hated,” when the tragic of 911 occurred.
This movie gives us an insight into the perceived relationship that exist between the different races in that era The sincere fiction in this film was show the whites seen the non white officer by him thinking because he’s a cop he can interrogate a white male. Even though he wore the police uniform he still wasn’t looked at as an equal or a man of power, he still was looked at as a black. We as a society tend to dismiss films as mere forms of entertainment. Both movies gives us different perspectives on the hegemonic ideology and society’s grasp of the roles of whites and blacks and what both represent to us.
“Black Lives Matter[...] seeks to give black people the impression that white people and cops are conducting a killing spree against them.” Simply uneducated on the meaning behind the slogan, people such as Jesse Peterson are simply a click away to realizing the real reason behind the movement. Yet, many Americans will never feel the need to look up, or become educated on the topic. Knowing this, Obama attempted to explain the reasoning behind the slogan explaining how people were interpreting it incorrectly “It started being lifted up as ‘these folks are opposed to police, and they’re opposed to cops, and all lives matter[...] or suggesting other people’s lives didn’t matter or police officers’ lives didn’t matter” he then pointed out that saying “black lives matter” is not about reducing the importance of other groups. It 's about the human right that the
Specifically, the trial scene illustrates the prejudice in the court system. Tom Robinson is unable to have a fair trial due to the racist views of the jury. Scout comes to this realization when she sees that “in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case” (Lee 323). The jury makes its decision before the trial even starts. On top of this, Tom Robinson is not truly tried by a jury of his own peers because the jurors are all white.
Racial Profiling and the racism aspect of it continue the legacy of disadvantage to black people compared to whites. It is safe to say that racial profiling is quite plausibly, an example of racist habits and ideas. Another reason for the excuse of profiling racially is to supposedly lower black on black crime. It was showed that in 2011 685,724 people were stopped. Instead the outcome of this is usually the opposite at the same time it is political ways to make the residence of the white communities feel secure and safe.
