Proposal- For my research paper, I am going to focus on the controversial topic of inequality in the justice system. There have been many cases in the past couple of years where there have been white cops who have gotten away with crimes against blacks.

Zimmerman was found not guilty in this case, which started the movement of Black Lives Matter.
