PROMPT QUESTION:

  • Imagine that you are a successful lawyer in Los Angeles and that you do pro bono cases regularly as part of your practice. Imagine also that you have heard from your former teacher at UCLA who taught your class in “Race, Racism, and the Law” when you studied there. You and he have remained in close contact since your graduation. He has told you of the following 4 (actually true) stories from students and staff members.

These are the 4 stories:

  • An African American student reports that she answered an advertisement for an apartment in West Los Angeles, not far from campus. When she arrived to see the premises and meet the landlord, she was told that the apartment was unavailable because it had been rented only two hours previously. To her surprise and dismay, she noticed several days later that the advertisement was still posted. When she phoned again, she was instructed to visit the premises. However, before she went, she learned that one of her classmates, a young white woman, had just rented the apartment.
  • An African American graduate student was stopped by the police on Venice Blvd. and informed that he was under investigation for a serious felony because he met the description of the suspect. After he was handcuffed, he complained that the cuffs were too tight and were hurting him. The police officer proceeded to tighten the handcuffs further, before releasing him about an hour later without any apology.
  • An African American woman staff member at UCLA was shopping at a large Westwood Department Store and noticed that the clerk was ignoring her, while several white patrons were being served. After several minutes, she politely asked why she was not being helped. She was ignored. After her second inquiry, the female clerk turned to her and replied, “you black bitch.”
  • 4. A tall, attractive African American female undergraduate from UCLA was stopped by the police in a Los Angeles suburb and instructed to exit her late model automobile and walk backwards towards the police car. When she got there, the male officer grabbed and handcuffed her and told her that “hookers were not welcome” in town. After several minutes, following an extensive computer background check, she was released without apology.

THE OBJECTIVE IS TO ANALYZE THE PROBLEM CAREFULLY, SYNTHESIZE MATERIALS EFFECTIVELY, AND EXPRESS YOUR VIEWS AND CONCLUSIONS COHERENTLY. ESSAYS SHOULD ADHERE TO HIGH STANDARDS OF ORGANIZATION, GRAMMAR, AND PUNCTUATION. BE SURE TO PROOFREAD THE PAPERS CAREFULLY. BE CAREFUL WITH PLAGIARISM.

Running Head: RACISM AND POLICE BRUTALITY IN AMERICA

Addressing Prompt 3, Case #4.
Black women in America have experienced racism, and police brutality more than their
white counterparts. This group of women has been hypersexualized and portrayed as sexual
objects, arguably more than female individuals of any other race (Fryer, 2016). Racism and police
brutality in America has led to severe injuries to the black women; there have also been cases
where police violence has led to deaths of this minority group, research has in the past indicated
that black women account for 31% of the fatalities caused by police brutality in America.
Incidences of violence and harassment of the black women by the police in America have risen to
a high level that it has attracted public interest.
The African American female body has for long been an obsession for people of other
races. This intersectionality of being a woman and an African American has caused members of
this minority group to face distinctive discrimination. The case with the police pulling over of the
attractive female UCLA graduate of African American descent is an example of this critical issue.
There is a history of obsession with black female body, slavery, power, and capitalism which all
have led to the numerous discriminations black women face today; especially by police forces
committing acts of police brutality against African American women (Campney, 2018).
Everything about the African American women, from the body features to the afro hair and the
grooming of it, has been obsessively viewed and utilized to be controlled by white men throughout
the history of United States.
Police brutality has become more prevalent in American society than ever before; more
and more black men and women are becoming targets of police misconduct across the country.
This issue is not limited to a specific region; it is widespread in all states and regions in the United
States. This is a repetition of illegal behavior and discrimination against black individuals by police

forces, which surely cannot be tolerated. Many cases of police brutality occurring have to do with
extreme reactions of police officers combined with acts of discrimination. However, with the case
of the female African American UCLA undergraduate and a police officer pulling her car over and
stating that "hookers are not welcome in the town," there is no extreme reaction, but rather a
hideous action of direct discrimination based on remarks of sexism and racism. I was especially
devastated and upset when I read that after doing extensive research and finding out she has a clean
record; the officer did not even apologize to her. As an advocate for feminism, I feel strongly
sympathetic to a...
