In the discrimination-disparity continuum the element that I believe explains this phenomenon most is contextual discrimination. Contextual discrimination is discrimination in certain situations or contexts. For example, when police racial profile a group of boys because of how they look. Also when a black male kill a white male he gets the death sentence where as a white male kill a black male it just jail time. I don’t believe this is fare because race shouldn’t determine if you should get a certain sentence, when you kill someone you deserve the death sentence. I don’t believe that everybody act the same in the criminal justice system. Discrimination usually happens depending on each person and situation. In many situations officers quickly assume that the minorities will be the ones who commit the most crime. Contextual supports my statement because depending on the situation and how is evaluating the scene.
