When we watch the news or read our newspapers, we can see that most of the criminals portrayed are of African American or Hispanic descent. Being a fan of true crime novels, they even depict more Black male criminals than White males. Are African American males committing more crimes than White males? What factors are involved for Blacks to be more involved in crime?
Some people wonder what is racial profiling. Racial profiling deals with miss- education, slavery, and incarceration.
Since the beginning of slavery African Americans have suffered due to their identity. Racial profiling deals with selecting a person for their complaint of a specific racial group.
The main reason in advocating racial profiling in the background of criminal study can enlarge the possibility of arresting criminals. It is injustice, when police officers, political officials, and judges have learned how to automatically have a racist attitude towards blacks.
While leaving the parking lot, the officer had pulled them over because he seen a black guy get out of his car and thought something seemed suspicious.

I believe that children are pushed out of high school due to the treatment that they receive from the school faculty and staff.
In most public schools history books had no existence or great scholars presented to black children. Therefore, blacks had no idea about themselves other than television and through pictures portray by the media. The public schools are transforming into prison institution whereas the teachers are becoming the police officers.
Again I would argue how the school system is transforming into a prison industry. Nowadays schools have been issued metal detectors, excessive cameras and clear book bags to verify that there is no weapons nor drugs inside them.
Also inthe Lower Merion School District in Pennsylvania started viewing students at their house and in school with spyware implanted into school-issued laptops. Slavery has a correlation with the prison institution.
Slavery dealt with capitalism, physical control, and cruelty. The prison institution has become the new slave trade. Blacks are used for cheap manual labor. For example, I would argue how there is more labor jobs given to Blacks in jail than Blacks who live in poor communities.
It makes me wonder how the mass incarceration of black males in society is so extreme, because of the poor communities many lived in.If you are interested in combating the racist criminal injustice system and in working toward true social justice, contact the Prison Activist Resource Center.
