Ethnicity and the Police By CJA344 The police department is leaving a bad impression in many minority communities, because of the corruption and brutality that comes from the police patrolling the areas. The police should leave a positive impression with the communities that they serve, this way the police will be able to ask the community for help when needed. There are a few people in the community that speak highly of the police because they have good experiences with the police and have positive opinions of the police and are more freely to cooperate with the police department. Lack of community support to the police force can lead to more crimes in the communities, as a result of the community the police can be less likely to work up to their full potential. “When crime rate goes up there is a further dip in the public perception of the police resulting in a greater antagonism towards the police on the part of the public “(1985).

The community is self segregated community; each race sticks with each other. The Caucasian groups live in one section, the Hispanics in one section and so forth.
Multiculturalism in the Classroom Marietta Miller ECE 405: Children and Families in a Diverse Society Instructor: Kristen Crocker December 19, 2011 Multiculturalism in the Classroom As an educator it is important that we learn everything possible about the children we will be teaching, there will be children from various countries with various cultures and it is important that they do not feel as though they are any less important than the children with the same cultural background as the teacher is. I chose to write about Hispanic decent because they are one of the fastest-growing ethnic minorities in the United States. Numbering about 22.4 million in 1992, they make up the second largest minority in the nation, African Americans being the largest. About 60 percent of these Hispanics trace their origin to Mexico. It is not uncommon to walk down the streets of an American city today and hear Spanish spoken.
Religion or spirituality is important for Hispanic Americans and Latino Americans, and plays a central role in their lives. Again, individuals who move away from religious or spiritual tradition are not favorably received. Hispanic or Latino and Asian immigrants and their children support many of the same public policies (from reformed health insurance to better education, from less costly housing to better and more secure jobs). Minorities often different more among themselves than they do with the white majority. Hispanic are aware of big differences within the group especially among the Mexican American (largest group) and the Cuban American the latter being more conservative, to vote Republican, to become American citizen.
The world contains many cultures, and within the world there are many ethnicities. culture can be defined as the behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social or ethnic group and the attitudes, feelings, values, and behaviors that characterize and inform society as a whole or any social group within it, whereas ethnicity can be defined as the classification of mankind into groups, on the basis of racial characteristics.

There are many cultures in the world, I just so happen to be a part of the Hispanic culture, being that I am Puerto Rican.
