One can have a better idea of unfair treatment with Black people in America by having a look at another example that even though the findings of several surveys suggest that both White and Black people use marijuana at approximately parallel proportions, but Police arrest Blacks 3.7 times more as compared to the rate of Whites for the usage or the possession of marijuana. All the above mentioned details fall in the category of pathos as these reflect emotional base to strengthen the argument of writer.
In an effort to measure the “Unconscious Attitudes” of American people, an online “Shooter Video Game” was used by Joshua Correll of the University of Colorado at Boulder. In that video game the player takes on the character of a “Police Officer” who is challenged with a sequence of imageries of white or black men. While among those, some of the men either holding weapons or innocent objects, for instance, cell phones or wallets. The target is to shoot anyone with a gun while if the opponent is carrying an innocent object, one is not supposed to shoot in such scenario. On the basis of the observed results it was found that players normally shoot more hurriedly at Black men as compared to the White men. Resultantly they are more likely to shoot an unarmed black man than an unarmed white man incorrectly.
The writer shares kairos in his personal experience when he himself played this for a very first time few years ago. His natural impulse reaction in shooting an armed black was quite quick, more precisely it was at an average of “0.679 seconds”. On the other hand to shoot armed Whites he used to delay a touch longer at an average of “0.694 seconds”. It was found equally true in the case of Black players as well, seemingly because of the fact that they engross the same cultural ethics as other Americans. Correll also concluded that intuitively it is built-in in our minds that young black men are linked with vulnerability and there is an entire culture that endorses this impression of violent young black men.
