Police Brutality

The affects of Police Brutality and Racial Inequality upon African-Americans.

Dear Future President,

                         Congratulations on becoming the 45th President of The United States. I am here to talk you about two very important topics we encounter today, Racial Inequality and Police Brutality. Racial Inequality as well as Police Brutality have been on the uprising in today’s time. Racial Inequality is the difference that sets apart an individual because of race. Police Brutality is the use of excessive/unnecessary force by police. Both of these topics are significant because it is an ongoing problem that us Americans deal with today. These problems are connected within each other that similarly have an affect when one situation is caused. Racial Inequality, for example has created the disappearance of being “free” and/or “equal”.This problem has surfaced around African-Americans, who I believe are being targeted for having a dark skin tone and of course for being labeled under the stereotypical views that they have upon themselves. It has affected them by putting them in a position/situation where they have lost and are not given the same opportunities or treatment that a white man would receive. This problem has appeared in schools, communities, and even in business. According to a study on, with dealing with police, blacks have a 84% chance of being mistreated than whites in the U.S. In a work place, blacks have a 64% chance of being unfairly, leaving the whites with a 22% chance of being mistreated themselves. The facts are obviously here as you can see, it is just a matter of making a move and start having no disparity between the blacks and the whites.

                            Racial Inequality links up with the other problem I believe is significantly important, which is Police Brutality. This problem is once again, dominantly connected or with affair with African-Americans (blacks). 2016 is the year that solidified Police Brutality which is a very huge problem that needs to come to a stop as soon as possible. According to, it states, “U.S. police have killed at least 194 black people in 2016". Compared to the number of whites killed by police is not even comparable and jaw-dropping. That’s how bad Police Brutality has dominantly affected and targeted the blacks throughout this one year. This has caused many violent acts and has caused hatred towards the police in general. It has even caused the shootings and killing of several police officers that was provoked by the frustration of a recent killing at that time. It seems as if black people are being innocently killed by police daily because of this “label” that black people have upon them.

                              Both these topics are very significant and we as the people ask of your need to call a stop to Police Brutality and Racial Inequality. It has caused our country such a heartbreak and has left us in disparity within our own country. I’d like to thank you for your time in reading this and I hope for your cooperation in ending both these disputes.
