You must also take a look at the reasons for violent acts and what constitutes as such. In the “Meanings of Violence” by Dov Cohen and Joe Vandello, they examine the difference in the meaning of insults between the Southerners and Northerners in the United States. They talk about the importance in social status and the concept that anthropologist have called “Culture of Honor”. With the concept individual is based on their social position and how tough they are or what courage they carry. There is also the idea that if a persons social standing in reduced for whatever reason that there is belief that violence could be used to restore their position. The idea of culture-of-honor is that an incident may occur over something as “trivial” as being glanced at wrongly, or showing a threatening insult. The individuals may not see it as being a trivial circumstance but a threat to stand their ground and prove their
There are protests, shootings, fights, and even terrorists’ attacks. A lot of these violent behaviors were triggered from poor mental health. At school, there a lot of fights.

Over the last thirty years, significant scholars of American (particularly southern) lynching such as George C. Wright, W. Fitzhugh Brundage, Stewart E. Tolnay and E. M. Beck, Christopher Waldrep, William D. Carrigan, Amy Louise Wood, and Manfred Berg have written at length about the social structure and cultural context of the collective violence, much of it racially motivated, that plagued the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century United States. With the exception of Wright's and Waldrep's work, lynching scholarship (including my own) has tended to focus more on the structure and context of lynching violence than on its impact on African American communities. Focusing on the violence itself as well as those who perpetrated it, scholars
Finally, Mack, a wealthy white man with a great job, faces violence when his car breaks down in an unsafe neighborhood. Stranded at night in the middle of a dangerous area, a gang of black men attempt to carjack Mack. The gang threatened Mack’s life with a gun if he disobeyed what they ordered him to do. Before leaving, the man with the gun asks Simon, “Are you asking me a favor as a sign of respect or are you asking me a favor cause I got the gun?” This illustrates how in America, violence is used to gain what you want, no matter how it affects other people. Furthermore, the man carrying the gun was wearing a jacket with ‘USA’ written on the back. Referencing the fact that violence is present in America because the one with the gun is the
