Recent police shooting, attacking of the police, developing fear against Muslims are all because of making assumptions about the people based on the media information and fear from the community leaders in the society. The root causes of these issues have caused the people to look into their everyday lives and wonder about their bias (Rock 4). The various standpoints that have been stated for the development of fear and negative stereotypes are cultural propensity to fear people who look different, provocation from the local and national leaders for their own political gain, opportunists in the society who are looking to make profit from these issues, indecisiveness on the governmental leaders to work on the issues fearing their preservation (Rock 8). The real victims are the families and regular working people who do not know whom to trust in this arena. This leads to a negative spiraling of events and leads to fostering of false beliefs. The solution for this issues should start from individual realization and from community to community. There is no immediate solution for this issue.
However, the efforts to build positive community is required immediately. It should be acknowledged that each ethnic group or community seem to have an image of the rest of the world. This is further fostered by the reinforcements of the members of the community. This should turn towards something positive and reinforced by the people. An action and reactionary approach is required to tackle this issue (Carter and Murphy 272).As a first step, there should be greater awareness in the communities about fear and negative stereotypes. The media should stop propagating fear in the communities and help the people understand the despite the differences there is unity that is still existing in all areas. There should be more awareness about the impact of the bias on the community. There should be ways to identify, promote and build good initiatives to prevent and reduce racism. There should be development of the communities and the individuals to broaden their scope and look at individual actions before formulating an opinion about the person.
