The Consequences Of Hate Crimes

Superior Essays
The violence that can erupted over such trivial things like the color of one’s skin or the way in which someone talks is both shameful and destruction. When performed, hate crimes carry the same process and message as terrorist actions; the effects are the same, harm or intimidated those deemed unfit for the community. The sad thing is, hate crimes are enduring, no matter the consequences and no matter the buffers; the reasons, hate crimes do not even have to be acts of violence, it could be a subtle as simply ignoring a request of someone becuase of race or other issues. There is no way to change the minds of people who hold bigotry and racial thoughts in their heart. Becuase of this, hate crimes, at least the subtle ones, will never be vanquished …show more content…
I spoke of this in my first list on how to stop escalating feelings of hate; a set law carried out by just and fair indinvnualds will in theroy stop hate crimes from occurring, as the people who commit them know their consequences. Other services that could help deter hate crimes could be an educational tool in schools, perhaps a class dedicated to teaching other cultures so that people know long “hate” other people becuase of misunderstandings. This of course would be hard to implement, but I have found that changing one’s opinion can only come when wrong thoughts are correct with truthful information. This would help deter hate crimes, as hopefully it would teach others similarities they have with other cultures. Lastly, a psychology service must be available for communities. Like I have continued to reiterate, hate crimes cannot all be stopped, but preventing future crimes by allowing anger to be dealt with through doctors would deter those who have breakthroughs from …show more content…
Although not wrong, this trend is normally followed, at least in the United States, by a government run program used to help change social orders in America. This era of American history will become the second 60s, especially so as most still feel that some issues first started in the 60s have yet to be solved. With movements like Black Lives Matter and other social reform calling organizations it is a no brainer that students in schools will be exposed to the reality of real life after the school rule bound hallways they currently tread. Yet, the societal trends can cause problems in school when they overstep the simple call for change and into a demand for fairness. Simply put, educators must be a fair and just grader and teacher, but if students begin to feel unfairly treated becuase of race it will cause problems in school. Having a victim complex because of social trends in certain communities will only lead to conflict in school as most students may grow tired of the victim mentality and lash

    This creates a chain reaction where progressively more kids talk cynically about their school making high school seem worse than it is. Many kids at my high school don’t find the high school itself distressing, but the people in it. If kids stopped the negative comments about the school they would enjoy it, but instead they follow everyone else’s example and trash talk school to appear “cool” to other kids with the same opinion. In short students care too much about the wrong things. In Ross Douthat’s “Secrets of Princeton”, Douthat is replying to Susan Patton’s letter to the girls in Princeton that informs them of their need to find a spouse before they graduate and that Ivy League schools double as a dating service.…

    I totally agree that now a days standardized testing is used as a way of distinguishing the students with chances to make it from those who won’t. It has made teachers teach to the test instead of allowing students to critically think on their own. It has also given the government a look into schools that don’t have good success rates due to the background and the culture from where they come from. The stress that standardized testing brings causes them to lose focus on their grades and other important factors. Some students may excel in the classroom yet not perform well on a standardized test because they're not use to the format given to them.…

    To some this would not necessarily be considered a corrupt motivation; however, the states most likely agreed without considering how the students would be affected. While using common core to gain a grant, the administration would not be as concerned about how the students learn, as long as they score highly on the exams. While the nesting layers approach allows for the administration to work with the teachers and their curriculum, this motivation could lean towards the black box approach. By being focused on outscoring other states, the administration has basically told the teachers to change all of the lesson plans. Because teachers are being made to change their methods within their classrooms, they are also being omitted from the decision making.…
