An example of this would be that all of the people living in America have much more culture from what was the standard during the 1700s. Another example would be that culture is evolving as we go on with life. Also, each Race has a different standard of living that relates to their culture.

Influence of Ethnicity within the Courtroom
An individual’s race or ethnicity can have a substantial influence on courtroom proceedings and judicial practices. Many people, regardless of their own race, have preconceived notions of individuals that are charged with a criminal offense.

The media tends to glamorize and indulge these types of crimes because

The answer to these questions would vary based on if ethnic hierarchy, one way assimilation, cultural pluralism, or group separatism were being discussed.
Ethnic Hierarchy is when some racial groups think that they are better or held on a higher pedestal then other ethnic or racial groups. For example back in slavery times, African Americans were looked at the inferior racial group. One Way Assimilation is when an individual or group from another culture adapts to one dominant

Racial profiling is when an officer of the law abuses his authority targeting a certain race, ethnicity, or religion. One current issue surrounding this topic is the case about Freddie Gray. He was a Baltimore resident that got arrested. While he was being transported to the transport van he sustained injuries. He fell into a coma and died. The 6 officers could never account on how he sustained those injuries and the information they released would never add up. So protesters began attacking police officers, rioting, and destroying properties. They were doing this because they believed that Freddie Gray was targeting by these officers and they were abusing

Throughout their history here in the United States, Mexican Americans have been subjected to many years of discrimination simply because of their race, culture, language, and ethnicity.

As mentioned before, sports have an incredible ability to bring people together regardless of differences such as skin color or ethnicity.
