Dunkin Donuts Analysis

Decent Essays
Why is it that today that protesting and starting movements to promote certain races is turning into a problem in America? This is due to the lack of respect everyone has for one another like their opinions and rights. I am in all support of people going out and getting their rights but not if it affects other people who are respecting in a negative way. The fact a dunkin’ donuts employee wrote “#blacklivesmatter” on a cup for a police officer is ridiculous and wrong. There are a time and a place to show what you believe and what you are fighting for. There is a problem with blaming all police officers for the police brutalities’ and blaming all blacks for violence, there shouldn’t be a stereotype associated with either. I believe that Dunkin …show more content…
Dunkin donuts are notorious for providing coffee for everyone across the country and making sure everyone is treated equally. By not firing the employee after crossing the line of respect shows a lot of classes. It shows the employee has the right to fight for black lives matter but not do it in a setting that effects a major cooperation. Personally I think the employee should have just kept their opinion to themselves, it was very unprofessional to put it on the cup in the first place. They should have chosen the professional path and not written anything on the cup at all. By doing that, a lot of problems could have been avoided. There is a time and place for everything. This also goes along with the cop’s response to the …show more content…
The employee made a mistake by stereotyping the officer and like I said before should have never written anything on the cup. But it did happen and I feel like the police officer could have taken it a different way. The cop responded in a way that showed so much negative emotion. The police could have just taken the cup and walked away from the situation, but instead he made it a huge deal and began to blame black lives matter as a whole. Not all people who support black lives matter is trying to bring down all cops. The cop stereotypes the group based on this one person, which isn’t right at all. Overall Dunkin donuts handled the problem with a lot of class. They did not give one side more satisfaction or justice. This concludes that both sides were at fault and are in need to fix their personal judgments. The Employee should have never written it and even if the employee did write it the cop should have just ignored it. The stereotyping between the two groups is what’s causing the black lives matter movement to not be a positive

    They are labeled as snitches and are no longer welcome within a department; upper management can even punish officers leading to officers not wanting to break The Blue Wall Of Silence and not “whistle blow” on their fellow officers. In this paper I will argue that because of The Blue Wall Of Silence and the character of the police department makes whistleblowing…

    Placing the blame and getting angry at all white people as a default is not effective because you can’t solve an issue such as racism, which is based on hate, by hating another group of people. In this way, my life has been effected by my race. No, I have not experienced anything near the discrimination of minority groups but it is not fair or solving…

    Introduction Police brutality is causing a major fuss with all the current African American sh ootings. People believe that African Americans are being targeted when others believe that it shouldn’t matter. When police officers are trained, they are taught to go into high crime areas and low-level signs of disorder. “Racial segregation this both concentrates African Americans in “high crime areas” in which entire communities are criminally suspect and makes African Americans “out of place” and thus suspicious when they are not in predominantly black areas” (Carbado). Police officers are drawn to the areas that a lot of African Americans live, and because of racial stereotypes officers think that African Americans could be threating.…

    The act of law enforcement members mistreating minorities—specifically African American members of society—has commonly been mocked, and normalized. Most of our society chooses to ignore racism, or even deny the existence of racism completely. People seem to believe that racism will just go away on its own if we all just stop acknowledging it. Unfortunately, racism is very real, and is still very prevalent in our society. Ignoring the existence of racism, or claiming to be "color blind," when it comes to race, does more harm than good.…

    Both sides of this argument are very displeased with this issue. To this coin there are two sides as there is with just about every coin, but anyways there is the police side which they choose to defend the actions of their fellow officers because they feel like what they do is justifiable in the eyes of the law. Then there is the civilian side were the people think law enforcement do nothing but hurt innocent civilians and treat the races horrible according to the officers’ skin color. The police think that some of their fellow officer’s actions are completely justifiable in what they do. The people think different, matter of fact completely the opposite.…

    White people constantly say that everyone is equal, but in reality, they are not. The Black Lives Matter movement wants to tell the world that black people are getting treated indifferently. My own view, however, is that social inequality is getting out of hand and needs to be resolved quickly. People have blinders on and people want to pretend they do not see what is currently happening; therefore, the problem will not be solved. Prince Jones, for example, was shot by a police officer who thought he was another criminal.…

    His social heritage has taught him to despise the Negroes, and he has had little education which could have changed him” (Chaney 483). The teachings of hating or despising the Negro lead to the officers wanting to use excessive force on an African American. The education of the white man also contributes to brutality as he feels inferior to people around him thus harming them. This causes police officers to preform racist acts and severally injuring or even killing African Americans. A common argument against police brutality is that the officer acted in self-defense because the victim possessed a weapon.…

    Piedmont during the writing of this book due to their personal experiences. Throughout The Water is Wide, superintendent Dr. Piedmont is displayed as a racist who fires Pat for trying too hard to educate these isolated black kids. Pat implies that Dr. Piedmont at least had some picture of how undereducated the students at Yamacraw are, when in reality, he could have truly had no idea. With this in mind, all those trips that Pat thought necessary for the kids due to their lack of contact off the island, Dr. Piedmont really saw as an unfair privilege because none of the kids on the mainland got such long distance field trips. Also, if this was the case, then Dr. Piedmont would 've thought that the kids were decently educated and that Pat 's unconventional teaching methods were just him not taking his job seriously, which were grounds for him to be fired.…
