Question and answer
In what ways have laws been used to enforce discrimination?
Affirmative action of the courts and prison systems which discriminates against Blacks and Hispanics, gives them 20% longer sentences, targets their neighborhoods, racially profiles, weakens minority neighborhoods electorally, [ created the culture of fatherless homes as a reaction to the Civil Rights Movement, fills prisons with low-level offenders for petty drug offenses, with illegal searches
and in some states; where those crimes have been decriminalized anyways and disproportionately targets minority youths in instances where white youths would be dealt with informally. Which is masked by "Affirmative Action" which largely benefits white women and Jews anyways. There were also the Convict codes, which were used to put Blacks back on the plantation, the loitering laws, the Bloggs Act which targeted Blacks and Mexicans for marijuana until it was realized whites use it more, the sentences disparity between crack and cocaine at a 100 to 1 ratio, the lynch laws and various others. ]

What would happen if the role of the police were lessened as it applies to the theory and practice of community policing?
Weegy: Community policing is attractive in theory, but has faced an uphill battle to convince police officers and citizens to accept new roles and responsibilities. [ Despite these constraints, many determined police executives and community leaders have persisted in their reform efforts and, consequently, have recorded some notable successes. The larger problem lies in the changing landscape of policing and the challenge posed by competing paradigms. Community policing offers a real solution to this growing problem. Joint police-community problem-solving initiatives—with open, two-way communication and a focus on building comprehensive partnerships that attack the problem from all sides—hold considerable promise. This approach has been effective in addressing other social problems, and there is no compelling reason to believe that it cannot be applied to the problem of public safety. ] (More)

Which statement do you agree with more? Why? a. PC speech is an important issue in modern society and reflects a growing respect for others. b. PC speech is just a form of conformism and does not represent a meaningful change in attitudes.
Weegy: I can't decided which I agree with honestly. If I HAD to choose I would say A. [ because PC speech is an important issue, and although I have seen promise in communication between cultures I know also that to some degree some less developed mentalities, change is still not going to happen. PC speech needs to be hand in hand with some sort of GLOBAL embrace of differences among cultures, color & gender. GLOBAL reinforcement of acceptance if you will. ] (More)
