Being a person of color is harder than you may think. Especially when it comes to the crimes that are committed. In my research, I wanted to know why people of color get harder criminal sentencing than people not of color. What I found is that it is because of racism. According to Racism, The situation for black people has gotten worse. Even Hillary Clinton said that African Americans are most likely to be arrested by police and sentenced to longer prison terms for doing the same thing whites do and that is true. If you compare what a white person is going to be sentenced to and what a black person is going to be sentenced to, the chances are that the colored person is going to be sentenced harder. Also according to Racism, This year’s update continues to show between 12% and 25% of blacks reporting they have been treated unfairly in their dealings with police, while they are at work, while shopping or in other situations. Thus, while the problem of racism may be receiving greater or at least renewed attention. That is what my question is all about, I want to understand why this society is what it is.
