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
This topic very important to me I like that you have decided to write about this. The topic is also frustrating, it’s been decades and black people are still looked at as less than as dangerous as uneducated and the list goes on and on it’s crazy. Here is an article I think would interest you https://www.washingtonpost.com
I agree that racial profiling has become a very serious issue in the United States and it has become very aggressive and violent. I agree that there should be changes on how our criminal justice systems treats people of different color. We all deserve to be treated the same way and we should all be treated as equal, because at the end of the day our skin color shouldn’t matter. Police officers should do better of not giving special treatment to those who aren’t African Americans. Then that raises the question of can we trust our justice system to keep us safe? or Can we trust them not to be biased about other peoples race?

When I first look at an image of a man holding up a sign which says “Hands UP DON’T SHOOT,” what comes to my mind is all these past years police have been shooting or targeting people of race, that’s why this fa
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
