Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
Black violence has existed in the United States of America since the 1620s — nearly four centuries. During this time, the level of pressure and cruelty varied, but discrimination on the basis of race was, and has remained. The topic of my work is an issue of white racism. The main idea of ​​this project proposal is to determine the role of white racists in violence against African Americans in the US and to trace the transformation of the ideology of white racists in theory and practice. So, my diploma will be divided accordingly into two chapters: theory and practice. The research is mainly focused on interviews with defenders of the rights of the black population, articles in various online newspapers, the official website of the modern movement “KKK”, documentaries about the killings and video as evidence of police violence. On the basis of the material studied, the main stages of the formation of the KKK will be determined. All vivid cases of violence against African Americans, their causes and causes will be analyzed. As a result, studies of this issue are intended to stimulate others to come closer to understanding of solving white racism problem.
