The un-Americanization of the racial minorities  

The widespread revolution against the demographic of people that below to the racial minority is quickly becoming the norm in several law enforcement and justice systems. The more disgusting aspect of the whole marginalization is the large acceptance and practice that it has gotten from the group of citizens that consider themselves the real set of Americans. So strong is the racial slur against people from minor races in America that President Donald Trump used racism as a focal point in his ‘Make America great again” campaign, and still emerged victorious.

The election that brought in former President and first Black President of the United States, Barrack Obama was deemed highly credible and the election results show that a significant amount of voters across all races contributed in the democratic election that brought him in. Eight years later, Americans have decided to embrace a stigma-esque system of Government where Law enforcers give preference to white majority races over those deemed less fortunate in the racial minority.

The high wave of legalized crime by Police officers against the black race majorly and other minor races often begs the question of what real justice means and tempts the query of how the judicial system works when defendants with color and races other than what is considered as the “original American” are involved in a case.  

The term “white privilege” is misleading. A privilege is special treatment that goes beyond a right. It’s not so much that being white confers privilege but that not being white means being without rights in many cases. Not fearing that the police will kill your child for no reason isn’t a privilege. It’s a right.  But I think that is what “white privilege” is meant to convey, that whites don’t have many of the worries nonwhites, especially blacks, do.

Racism in America has metamorphosed into a civil type of mental oppression for a number of reasons, but the chief culprit is simply the mindset and the deluded ideology that says a tribe is not American enough or a race belongs to the Minority. The level of racism and the amount of American citizens that unashamedly act racist to people who they consider minorities has risen so high that it almost matches the level of ignorance that saw European masters take and sell slaves under the philosophy that white is superior and black is slave.

Sociologists have also identified that the American Racism is also irrespective of status, wealth, achievements or skin color sometimes.

Even though many Arab Americans have lighter skin, enjoy middle class success, and identify as White, they are still “not quite White” because of the ways they are racialized. Negative stereotypes about Arab people as “backward” and “uncivilized” have resurfaced in recent years as the racialization of Arab and Muslim men as criminals and threats to national security became mainstream talking points in the War on Terror.

Nuclear North Korea

The growth of the North Korean Nuclear Arsenal began many years ago. Over the last couple of years, the country has made major headlines for the wrong reasons and continues to defy sanctions after sanctions levelled against it by the United Nations.  Since 2006, the country alone has ignored over half a dozen sanctions from the security council of the United Nations and the country’s nuclear prowess has only grown much wilder since the beginning of the Kim Jong-un era. President Jong-un reiterated the country’s determination to continue with their advancement in nuclear technology after the September 15th missile test and mentioned that the Democratic Republic of North Korea will only speed up and accelerate its nuclear programme following the approved September 11th sanction of the UN. As the world continues to wage a war that questions the morality of the development and use of nuclear weapons, President Trump and President Xi Jinping have threatened to maximize pressure on the Democratic Republic of Korea. Pyongang has responded by branding the latest UN sanctions as inhumane and most hostile. While it is still unclear how this delicate scenario might play out, one thing is for sure – Nuclear weapons are totally unacceptable for the safety of innocent lives and the survival of the planet as a whole. Beyond the economic impact and shift of world superpower status, sociologist offer some insight to the ethics and politics governing the use of nuclear weapons.

“Most of the ethical theorists who contemplate the issues of modern warfare conclude that nuclear weapons are more immoral than conventional weapons to peace by Even if all war is evil, a limited war, entailing the use of only nonnuclear weapons, is still somehow deemed a little less evil. If nuclear weapons could be eliminated entirely, such theorists would thus generally be happy. And when the mere threat of nuclear warfare is held over the world, allegedly contributing to peace by deterring someone else’s use of nuclear or conventional weapons, such moral theorists will tend to be unhappy”.

The horrendous experience that can be recounted by the death toll of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well the use of other forms of WMD (Weapons of mass destruction) such as the Chemical weapons of the Japanese terrorist helps to put the unimaginably destructive power of these nuclear weapons in sight.
