If racial oppression is a kind of disease, what are some of your recommendations for remedies and how they can be applied? One example of a remedy for racial oppression is gathering the people who believe that racism is okay and the people who think that racism is not okay, and make sure that every voice is being heard. When doing so people are beginning to understand as to why one person feels one way and the other feels a different way. Another way to stop racial oppression is to find the source of the issue and try to resolve the issue. If that issue is not able to be resolved instead of violence you can instead use a different method, for example, you can take the issue and move it not violently but forcefully.
I believe that racial oppression is caused by people who feel that they are higher than another race just because of the color of their skin which is not true I know this because in an article it states “The First 19 or so Africans to reach the British colonies arrived in Point Comfort, Virginia, near Jamestown, in 1619, brought by British privateers who had seized them from a captured Portuguese slave ship. Slaves were usually baptized in Africa before embarking.” I chose to put down this piece of evidence because it explains to me how white people thought that just because they were white that meant they had the power and authority to remove people from their home just for them to have the pleasure to treat them any way they want to. Now in the present time, I see no difference except for the fact that they are no longer able to own people or take them away just to work for them. The things that I see that are similar are when white cops think that it’s ok to kill young black men for absolutely no reason. For example, the man once known as George Floyd who we all know did not deserve to pass so soon passed on May 25, 2020. For example, on Wikipedia, it states “May 25th, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill. Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost 9 minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face-down begging for his life………Chauvin ignored onlookers’ pleas to remove his knee, which he did not do until medics told him to. This goes to show that whites are still thinking they’re in charge when there really is no one except GOD/JESUS.
So, in conclusion, I believe the only way to get to the end of racial profiling, racist people, abuse to the young black men and women, I think that we should have a nice long talk and I think the police play a part in all of these racist things going around. So, I think that officers should be held more accountable for their racist actions toward the black people, white officers in particular.
