The article explains the post zimmerman verdict after he used self defense laws to kill a black minor committing a felony. In the article the author states, "Close on the heels of the “biased justice system” conceit, however, is the preposterous implication that the primary homicide threat faced by young black males comes from honorary whites such as George Zimmerman",(Heather MacDonald) here the author is annoyed by the democratic left trying to implicate that the main thing black minorities have to face are violence from whites. This is completely false and the author knows it. Blacks face more violence from other blacks, not the police, whites, or the system. Statistically it is proven and the media only searches for white on black violence. ***Donald, Heather Mac. “The Post-Zimmerman Poison Pill.” National Review, National Review, 10 Oct. 2017, www.nationalreview.com/corner/post-zimmerman-poison-pill-heather-mac-donald/.
The article/anecdotal experience by Reddit hudson showcases "his"experience in the police force of st. Louis, apparently the police force was very racist and even abusive in its power. According to the article Hudson states,"And because cops are rarely held accountable for their actions, they didn’t think too hard about the consequences",(Reddit Hudson) here Hudson thinks due to his experience that cops aren't held responsible for their actions. This is wrong in so many ways and I doubt that cops can do anything without repercussion. Cops nowadays are forced to be responsible with their actions as if they push it to far could lead to them being abused by the media and people to even having their careers ended for one mistake. Cops never get to do anything they want, maybe abuse their power, but not without the consequences.(Reddit Hudson) ***Hudson, Redditt. “Being a Cop Showed Me Just How Racist and Violent the Police Are.

James Barret, the author of the article goes into depth about what researcher Dr.Fryer and his team had found out after their exhaustive study on police shootings. Barret lists the many things and reasons why the study is right and how it got that way for them to find it. Fryers findings on how black people are less likely to be shot is very interesting. This shows that they are not disproportionately shot and killed and that race and bias have nothing to do with it. Along with this the article also goes over some truths about the research. Blacks were equal in carrying weapons, video taping hasn't changed policing procedure and this really is why there is no racism. Nothing has changed and no one is systematically focused on.(James Barret) ***Barrett, James. “6 Facts From New Study Finding NO RACIAL BIAS Against Blacks In Police Shootings.” Daily Wire, The Daily Wire, 11 July 2016, www.dailywire.com/news/7343/new-study-no-racial-bias-police-involved-shootings-james-barrett.
In the wake of Starbucks’ “racist incident”, Steven Crowder breaks down the difference between systemic racism and anecdotal evidence of individual racism. According to the video no place in our nation has actual provable evidence of systematic racism. There is only anecdotal evidence and responses to normal things, where people lie to get what they want. The men at the starbucks weren't arrested for their color but what they were doing. The justice system was doing what it does and steven crowder applauds it.

The small essay overviews the major problems that the panel created by obama tried to address, most importantly how people feel and were treated by the system. The author throws in certain research showing how minorities, mainly blacks are targeted and more injured by police, and how they feel towards how they were arrested. This does not mean anything at all as in the article the author weakly states how this is racist or targeting. What the research really means is that the minorities are doing most of the crimes, pose more danger, and even causing the unneeded deaths of people just because they want to get away or fight back. Most people want citizen governed policing but this is actually even more biased, opposite to what the text concluded. That is why police unions oppose this kind of justice.(washington Linn) ***Washington, Linn. "Police Are Racist Against Minorities." Police Brutality, edited by Michael Ruth, Greenhaven Press, 2016.

In the Gale article the author digs deep into the problems democrats like obama see in the justice system, and points out that these aren't racial problems but just that they must abide by a certain code, and procedure. That the over representation of minorities is just the code being applied to them as they are more likely to be charged previously and other things. According to the author,"a three-year analysis of more than 11,000 convicted criminals in California—found that the severity of offenders' sentences depended heavily on such factors as prior criminal records, the seriousness of the crimes, and whether guns were used in the commission of those crimes". This shows that minorities are more likely to have used or done things during their tenure before a conviction, making them have more representation in the justice system.(John Perazzo) ***Perazzo, John.
