Because of racism, people of Maycomb were hostile toward anyone who disagreed with them. Their actions effected Atticus, Jem, and Scout because they weren’t agreeing with the “normal” white person opinion. People being racist put Tom Robinson in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. All in all, racism can effect communities everywhere if it continues to happen. People in the world should consider each other equals no matter what race they are from.
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
Scout realizes that the only reason she must undergo this torment is that her father is defending a black man, which has become taboo because of the corruption that racism has caused in many people. In addition, Scout watches Tom Robinson undergo unfair treatment and false accusations. Please dont tell my parents I stole this essay. Although Atticus provides the jury and the people of Maycomb with overwhelming evidence benefiting Tom, and ultimately proving him innocent, this is not enough to overcome the powers of hate and racism. Scout watches as the jury deliberates and convicts Tom Robinson of murder because he is a black man.
Have you ever been discriminated because of the race you are? Are you considered suspicious to the cops because of your race? Many people are oblivious to the fact that everyday a black person is being discriminated because of racist policemen. In general, today 's society treats blacks poorly and assumes that they are violent and always up to no good. It is not fair to them for not getting the same advantage in education as us because they don 't look like us.
In many instances, American citizens have been deprived of such a dream because other fellow citizens are prejudice. This bigotry suppresses the African-American people in the crime filled ghetto in which few blacks make it to old age much less with a decent home and a retirement fund. Many things impede the African Americans' quest for their dream, such as the media and music. "The history of the Black American is largely the story of their struggle for freedom and equality" . Since the dawn of time the color black has always signified something Dirty, soiled, evil, wicked, disgraceful and without hope.
A white district attorney vehicle was stolen by two black males, making it stressful on the attorney because he could lose a black vote, or could lose a law and order vote. This is a big issue happening in America today. A lot of these situations that happen are based on emotion, and how different races have entered our lives in good or bad ways. If a black man did a white woman a good deed, typically the white woman is going to remember that black man as a good man and she will have a positive outlook for the black race. Now, if a white woman had a negative conflict with a black male, depending on how bad the situation was she may have a negative outlook against the black race, because of the situations she’s been through.
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.
Racial profiling has been one of the main causes of the tensions in communities with their police. The officers they believed they once trusted in a community, far from a white police officer and black victim crime, they are now skeptical and thinking, “If they attacked a black/white guy for no reason they’ll attack me.” This type of crime also brings up different combinations of racial tensions that were thought to be left behind in history. Racial profiling, as well as profiling based on religion, ethnicity and origin, continues to plague our nation despite the constitutional guarantee of equality. Evidence of widespread racial profiling, shows that African Americans and Hispanics are more likely to be stopped and searched by police, even though they’re less likely to be found with illegal possessions or crimes. “Critics argue that under the sole-factor definition, a hypothetical officer who routinely stops African-Americans for rolling stops or obscured license plates but does not stop Whites for the same infractions is not technically engaging in racial profiling because a reason other than race can be used to justify the stops” (Protecting Civil Rights 159).
“Who was the most racist in that situation? Was it the white man who was too terrified to confront his black neighbors on their rudeness? Was it the black folks who abandoned their mattress on their curb? … Or was it all of us, black and white, passively revealing that, despite our surface friendliness, we didn’t really care about one another?” He never blames the black neighbors for their disregard of the mattress because their black, but sounds aware of the stereotyping and how he comes off addressing it. He also knows how much he stands out in the community as a minority, wondering what the cops would say to him, “ ‘Buddy,’ the cops would say.
