Are Police More Likely to Be Violent With Some Racial Group Versus Others?

Table of contents

Introduction

Racism is a social issue that has existed in the United States since the colonial period. Even after 150 years since Slavery was abolished in the United States, its legacy continues, and some people continue to suffer. Many racial groups in the country are being mistreated because of racism. A considerable number of people in the United States will agree that the country has not made enough progress to solve the problem of racism. There are people in the country who are continuing to suffer injustices because of racism. These ethnic groups of people in the United States are unfairly treated and hurt in the process (Juliana et al., 2019).

African Americans especially have been the most adversely affected by the social problem. They are doubtful that the government and the society are not doing enough to help bring the issue to an end. In this paper, I am going to discuss the social problem in the police department. I am going to delve into the topic and discuss how differently the police treat people of different races. The paper aims to prove that police are likely to be violent with some racial groups than others.

It is a fact that there have been changes, and the cases of Black-White disparities in fatal police shooting have reduced. However, many African American in the country still feel pain from injustices due to racism. There are still some cases of racism in the country in many professional departments. I believe that the police are likely to treat people of a different racial group than them with violence because of the repeating history of white police officers mistreating and shooting unarmed Black Americans.

Besides, there is not much that has been done to try and solve the problem. To date, there is still the unfair treatment of the people of different indigenous groups in the country like it was centuries ago. The government also seems unconcerned with the problem, and by the look of things, the issue is not going away anytime soon. There has been a minimal effort made by the government to help solve the racism problem.

Mesic, A., Franklin, L., Cansever, A., Potter, F., Sharma, A., Knopov, A., & Siegel, M. (2018). The relationship between structural racism and black-white disparities in fatal police shootings at the state level. Journal of the National Medical Association, 110(2), 106-116. The research article is about the police shooting in the United States, researching the racial structure of the victims of the event. The study aimed to identify the racism between different indigenous groups in the United States. It studies the cases of unarmed blacks and whites who have been shot by the police.

The study was carried in several States in Black-White disparities in the police shootings that resulted in the death of the victims. The finding of the study was that most of the blacks were the victims of the Black-White disparities. The study concluded that racism still exists in the police department, and the African Americans are the most affected. A higher percentage of the victims of structural racism, which has resulted in the shooting of unarmed criminals are black people in the States. The journal will help me in my research paper by supporting my thesis statement that states that police are likely to be violent with some racial group than they are with their own. I will use the facts of the study to provide scholarly evidence to my claims.

Chaney, C., & Robertson, R. V. (2013). Racism and police brutality in America. Journal of African American Studies, 17(4), 480-505. The article questions why there have not been enough actions taken against police brutality and racism in the United States. The study aimed to find out how the public views the problem and from it come out with a recommended solution to the social issue. The article also relates the problem to the legal department and questions the government as to why they have not taken the necessary steps to fight the problem.

The African Americans, together with other indigenous groups in the United States, continue to suffer due to racism. The journal includes injustices done to the indigenous people in the State when they are victims of crimes committed against them, and the police fail to take action because of racism. Information in the article is relevant for my study because I will be able to prove that there are injustices done against the indigenous groups in the states because of racism. It will help me prove that the social problem exists, and actions should be taken to solve it.
