Standing with the Black Community
Standing with the Black Community
aunte Wright became a father at a young age, and he seemed to enjoy the role of his young father. He had a two-year-old son who could not play basketball with him but made his life filled with emotions and responsibilities. He had brothers and sisters who loved him very much.
Wright, A 20-year-old boy was shot dead by a police officer in the Minneapolis area of Brooklyn Centre. Police described Wright's shooting as "accidental eviction" when police tried to arrest Wright with a warrant after he stopped his car with expired registration tags. Wright's mother said she called him shortly before the shooting and told police he had been dragged away because he had air fresheners hanging from his rear-view mirror. As protesters and civil rights activists called for justice and police accountability for his death. Police said the officer who shot Wright intended to use his Taser on him but instead shot him with his service weapon.
Wright is the latest victim of government-sanctioned police violence in the United States. Reimbursement to the police, in addition to strong opposition from the police unions and the deliberate misrepresentation of the American political party, provides the most comprehensive solution to our national problem of racial injustice within the criminal justice system.
Rethinking public safety in the United States begins by drastically reducing domestic law enforcement measures, including sending armed police to enforce traffic jams, dealing with mentally ill and homeless people, and arresting seemingly unruly and disruptive schoolchildren. Reducing communication between the Black community and armed men and women is essential to end this cycle of violence, trauma, and death.
Last year, in the face of a devastating epidemic that affected black communities in an unprecedented way, protests led by Blacks following the assassination of police officers by George Floyd and Breonna Taylor strengthened American politics. Combined with unprecedented numbers of White participants and supporters of other races and ethnicities, BLM protests threatened to change the status quo. Companies suddenly adopted the hashtag on social media, the NFL came out in support of racial justice, and NASCAR closed the flag.
It is too late to end the ongoing legacy of violent policing in America and we are beginning to create a new world, which does not write, discriminate or kill Black people at car stops or elsewhere. Although it is too late for Daunte Wright, we can save the lives of Black people in America by eradicating our blind allegiance to law enforcement systems that are clearly not capable of recognizing Black people.
Black progress over the last fifty years has been impressive, in spite of the things previously mentioned Notwithstanding anything to the contrary. And then the nation has many miles to go on the path to true racial equality. I wish I could say that racism and discrimination were far-fetched, but when I look back, I see that even educated whites and African Americans have lost hope in equality.
There is no clear explanation, some would argue that the first achievement of education was the result of the growth of racial integration and the growth of compensatory learning programs such as Head Start. But non-discrimination or compensatory education does not seem to enhance the cognitive skills of black children exposed to them. In any case, racial mixing in mainstream schools has not changed in recent years, and the number of students in compensation programs and the dollars spent on them has been rising.
