The history of crime and race

The historical definition of race was an undeniable and has been a distinctive form, sharing distinct racial uniqueness as creation, disposal, and psychological capacities. These races were not designed to be linked to each other, but formed a chain of command of the intrinsic value with Europeans in general at the end of the twentieth century, the rock, is seeing an increase in racial conflict in the United States as well as the universal stage in a wide spectrum. This increase of horror based on the differences between human beings has a concept that came to be called anti-Semitism, which is normally defined as a hatred of the Jewish people and the fundamental principles of their culture. The fight against anti-Semitism was evident in the new reunified Germany, where anti-Semitism is considered particularly dangerous since the mid chronological sequence in which these processes take place. The evidence in the anthropological literature seems to point to the Jews who do not fit into any definition of the term “race” when the race is defined along the boundaries or biological anthropology.

Unfortunately, it is very similar nationalism based on race that is recurrent in Germany, the United States and other nations around the world these days continue to influence the race and crime. Knowledge of the past and the temperament of the individual life can be used to prevent a revival of large-scale persecution. United States of America Black / White race relations tend to develop as a lightning rod for most issues of race. This is largely due to our exclusive story. But changing the focus away from the contract, race relations in general, highlights a common problem – the role of those who are at the top of the pyramid Racial whites and the perpetuation of white supremacy world. The moment of realization for many whites are white privilege is often quite uncomfortable. While arrogance and sense of superiority that some the experience is nothing more than a byproduct of racism and racial hierarchy. However, we all become heir to the awareness of this common order. In all children turn age four, they are sensitive to race and racial stereotypes. White children come in a spirit of superiority, confidence and belief that they are the model and the norms of society, that all others are contrary to them that makes them different, and different is bad. Colored children learn that they are not the right color and it is better to be white. Although most whites are aware and could even give a graphical representation of the racial hierarchy – the insertion of whites at the top, Asians in their wake, Latinos and Native Americans behind it, and blacks at the bottom – they suffer often pessimistic consequences of the race, and therefore, they do not think much their decisions, beliefs, and events that may be based on assumptions about race.

The history of the United States is one in which people who are considered “white” dominated the justice system, there were more white judges, lawyers and prosecutors, which is the legal system. In the 20th century was when a little more minorities began to be represented in the legal process of the justice system. No matter how many centuries ago a diverse population in the United States. There are many country of origin remained an important aspect of the identity of a person in the United States. Although the race is not a scientific term, it remains a powerful social influence regarding criminal investigations. Historical perspective back to the meeting of African Americans under Jim Crow laws and slavery as other discriminatory acts.

In addition, when considering the crime and race can have a long hypothetical correlation between the two. Race functions as synonymous with crime. The relationship between race and crime has been the focus and concern among sociologists and criminologists since the beginning of disciplines in America. There are many racial and ethnic minorities in the United States have always been associated with higher rates of crime. It seems that since the beginning of time, most of the “criminal groups” were people newly immigrated to the United States. Many groups such as Hispanics and African Americans living in poor neighborhoods “ghetto” are brought to the attention of the police, and are overrepresented in court dockets, jail and prison, media reporting crimes, and victims of street crime. Despite the fact that race and the criminal investigation in recent decades some have ignored the link race and crime, however, there are also reasons to consider the difference in race crime.

The history of race and crime have shown concern for racial profiling, for example, police arrested a motorist may be treated unfairly on the basis of their race or cultural background. Profiling was a police practice in many states like New York and New Jersey because the police were focusing on some suspicious behavior, appearance, impact likely to have criminal connections or correspondence with trends crime. There are existing statistics found that men, especially young people from ethnic minorities, were most often linked to crime and this policy caused to pay much attention to this group. Police profiling is known to maximize the accuracy of the work of the police and security, it has been abused. The tendency to patrol high crime areas and neighborhoods, many of which are in or relatively close to residential areas, minorities have led many to assume that the police were “profiling” of blacks. In addition, a disproportionate number of young black men were arrested by the police and were charged with “driving black” or what is known as racial profiling. Individuals of color in the United States is led to suppose that many young men were arrested and harrested because of the color of their skin, but not for any criminal offense or violation of the legal system. Such cases of racial profiling and harassment continue to prevail throughout the 1990s . figures cited by the United States Bureau of Justice Statistics, said the 7.083 children under 18 were detained in prisons in 2004, and a total of 59% were blacks, whites 28%, and Hispanics 11%. Needless to say that adults were charged much more severe.

Play a role in the race and crime
For most crimes of the 21st century have provided much racial divide in America. In the recent history of the school system and the criminal justice system can now be regarded as an active cause of racial inequality. The paradox of race and crime persist and worsen disparities. The roles and functions of the justice system in a democratic society should include enforcement peacemaking, and service styles modeling excellent behavior in equal degree, but yet it is not so. There are reports that have built many results that indicate that black youth are treated differently in the U.S. criminal justice system for minors. In some reports submitted to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention of the United States Department of Justice, the majority of states provided data that proved the trend asymmetrical minority youth. Minority youth continues to be a disadvantage in the justice system, compared to whites because of unequal treatment with respect to plaintiffs’ detentions and provisions.

Inspiration in the justice system

The last 50 years there have been court cases that inspired the civil rights movement, such as the reform movement and due process. Minorities are not denied bail without legal representation. However, the past 30 years, the criminal justice system to continue to focus on young African-American men in the inner city and low-income community. Studies have shown that the difference in the communities where blacks and whites live, and explaining race differences in crime. Communities that are racially separated seem to have high concentrations of poverty. Poverty junction can race and crime in the community sure is part of the problem (The 2001 Current Population Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau called “Poverty in the United States,” says that ‘In 2001, the poverty rate was 7.8 percent for non-Hispanic whites, 22.7 percent for blacks and 21.4 percent for Hispanics). Apparently studies that analyze the profiling racial and crime, indicates that there is a close relationship between criminal violence and the racial composition of an area.

In conclusion, a large body of information has been evident on race and crime and its impact at all stages in the criminal justice system, some are direct discrimination in the justice system, while others find variables as factors. Undoubtedly, there is convincing evidence that discrimination based on race and crime still exist in the justice system today.
