Racism and injustice for black men and women have been a worldwide problem for decades, even centuries.
Since the periods with slavery, blacks have been treated poorly, all around the world, but the evolution in racism has become more positive and racism is becoming a smaller problem, except in the united states.
How can it be that everybody is becoming more educated and more openminded to minority groups, such as homosexuals, etc. but still lets down the black community over and over again?
Killings of young men, “stop and frisk” and suspicion is scenarios that happens on regular basis in the United States, and the majority of black men, have experienced injustice because of the color of their skin, several times.
How can it be that the government and police forces do nothing to prevent tragedies like these from happening over and over again? Especially after several demonstrations and riots happening all around the world.
There must be a way to solve this problem, or is it impossible to create a community, where the black community can trust the government, and the government trusts the black young men and women?
Riots and demonstrations have been a huge topic in the past decade. Movements like black lives matter are now something everybody is familiar with. Most often these demonstrations take place after a police shooting, for example, the shooting of Michael Brown.
The shooting of Michael Brown took place 9th of august 2014, in Fergusson, Missouri. Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer, while he was unarmed and on his knees.
Even though he wasn’t a threat by any means, the police officer shot him, and that is also the reason why it is considered racism.
The injustice for Michael Brown made the black community furious, and a riot was inevitable. People went to the streets and protested for days, to avenge Michael Brown, and not least preventing it from happening again.
