Racial profiling in the United States has become really serious, not just now but back in history. No small thing about history was obviously the slaves, almost all the African Americans would be used as a tool so they can make the white people’s life easier.
Now in the present, we still have the same problem but African Americans aren’t being used anymore. Now there’s equality in the United States, but some people still believe in the past history. But now it’s still hard for them because in the minds of many people they still are like they were centuries ago.
When does this happen nowadays? Well, most likely every day. You don’t know, but it goes from getting followed on a store to getting stopped by the police for no reason at all only because of their skin color.
Now they have stood up for themselves. In the summer of 2013, after George Zimmerman’s acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the movement began with the hashtag #BlacLivesMatter. The movement was co-founded by three black community organizers: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.
What is Black Lives Matter? Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic injustice towards Black people. BLM regularly holds protests speaking out against police killings of black people, and broader issues such as racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.
