There is a notion that there are few black men in the society because most of them are in prison. The proportion of black men in prisons is not attributable to the population trends. Stating that most black men are in prison leaving black women who are unable to bring up children responsibly is a misconception. Criminals can rise from families with both parents because parents can only guide their children but cannot make decisions for them. If this concept was true, the white children raised by single white mothers would also be linked to criminal activities something that racists are not giving consideration.
Latinos are experiencing segregation in the film and media industry. Despite the fact that Latinos constitute 17 percent of the total population in the US, they represent 1.5 percent of all the movie leading roles. This is according to the report formulated by the Columbia University. The roles in movies should not be allocated on racial grounds. It is important to put the abilities and expertise off actors into consideration when choosing lead actors. Latinos are being given miniature roles for example criminal roles in movies. This is an inappropriate role allocation method since it displays the perception that the society has concerning Latin Americans. Media houses are also employing very few personnel of Latin decent. For the media to display its universal nature, the employment structures should be inclusive of all the races that are viable for the jobs (Robb 1).
In the video, the speaker defines the role of the police as containing criminals other than protection and public service. However, the police department is a public service institution. If the police do not provide protection, the general public will be vulnerable to criminal activities. Therefore, the speaker’s definition of the role of the police is misguided.
