When attempting to integrate into the new culture and discovering that one is a victim of social injustices like racism, one may run against a complex system. Many individuals misinterpret frequently and may not have the best interpersonal communication skills. This study examines the difficulties one faces when dealing with racism in the United States and a step that has been taken to help solve criminal injustice.
It could be challenging to converse with a native if one does not speak their dialect. Furthermore, people might not be able to provide any information about how cultures relate. If a white individual, for example, is seen with Latino or black community members, it could make people wonder what kind of relationship one has with them.
It is not easy to be accepted as an American and will always be seen as an immigrant, even if one embraces their American identity( Chávez& Laura,2020). Even though immigrants have assimilated into American culture, it is a nation where immigrants are shamed. In order to fit in or to acquire American culture in order to be accepted, the majority of immigrant children who grow up in the United States become culturally trapped.
Although the situation is unfortunate, it was worse during segregation. One had to be either white or black throughout that time. Looking at this, one can see that the history of blackness or brownness in the United States dates back a very long period. It is a problem that has existed for a very long time. However, people should not give up hope that there will one day be a world where all races can live in harmony.
The white population and people of color are divided; take California as an example. Immigrant youngsters were stereotyped as gangbangers and troublemakers in schools. Even though they may be genuinely wonderful people, because of their race and origin, they are automatically assumed to be criminals (Tummala-Narra,2020). People should be free to embrace their native roots and openly embrace their uniqueness.
However, people may help stop this injustice if they get together and demonstrate against it. All people who are oppressed, both immigrants and native supporters, must work together to achieve this. All came together to pledge support for activism and spread the word about social justice. They are dealing with migrant workers, those who are homeless, and families that are struggling with finances. One should approach this from the standpoint of engaging the community rather than from the perspective of really helping someone.
Criminal justice reforms must be implemented to rehabilitate those who have been imprisoned and advance the cause of systematic racial equality. A good place to start is by examining the institutional racism that exists in the criminal justice system. The communities with low incomes and people of color who suffer incarceration—which, as a result, makes it difficult to get food, get help, and exercise one’s right to vote even after being released—are those most impacted by this system.
There is a practical approach to raising issues and assisting those who have been impacted by incarceration simultaneously. A company named Stripes has teamed up with a person to produce clothes through prisoners, assisting them in learning job skills, cooperating and producing work, and feeling pleased with their accomplishments. A unique possibility. Sharing their narrative with the world and contributing to expanding the commercial economy would give the prisoners more influence. We all need to live in a world where people are honored for their contributions to the country and themselves honestly and constructively (Chávez-Moreno,2020). It has been racially brutal for a long time, but it does not have to remain that way. Some things can be done to change the situation.
To summarize, it will take everyone’s effort to achieve social justice and equality; we have made some progress, but much more can be done. Everyone should embrace love and treat others with equality and respect.
