Human discrimination has been going on in different parts of the world despite being illegal. Human beings have refused to embrace each other totally as equals. It is for this reason that you will find some people thinking that they are a superior race than others or some people should not live in certain parts of the world.

Such backward behavior from racists and other people with a distorted sense of entitlement is what has led to difficulties in bringing all human beings together and treating them as equal human beings who deserve to be respected no matter what. The law already dictates that no human being should be discriminated against, but this has never stopped.
Two individuals in the United States have been working closely with human and civil rights activists in the state of Arizona. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the founders of an organization known as the Frontera Fund.
This organization has been looking for opportunities to help the minority people fight off discrimination which is brought their way by racists. The Frontera Fund works with these organization and aims at helping them perform their duties. These organizations need to be supported so that they can fight the people who engage in racist acts. Highlighting the plight of the immigrants and helping the immigrants get justice are key issues that such organizations look into.
The Frontera Fund has its origin from the same fight for justice. When Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, they were taken to jail for 24 hours before being released with no charges opened against them. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase
The arrest aggrieved them because it was outright discrimination and ignorance of the law which gives the people a right to express themselves.
The reason Arpaio had arrested them was that of an article they had published about a grand jury proceeding which had ill motives for searching the media house that Lacey and Larkin owned. Joe Arpaio was however on a mission of revenging on the two for the way in which they had exposed his corrupt dealings in an investigative piece they had done earlier through their newspaper- the Phoenix New Times.
Lacey and Larkin are interested in doing everything possible to see that racists like Joe Arpaio have no space to spread their ill behaviors. The battle between Arpaio and the two journalists ended up in court and a conviction of Arpaio for racial profiling and ignorance to court orders.
Although he did not serve a sentence, there was a little achievement in showing that he was responsible for the racist acts in his county. Arpaio was saved by President Donald Trump who is his friend after the conviction. Trump gave him a pardon, meaning that he would not be sentenced despite the conviction.
Trump and Arpaio believe in the same racist ideologies, and that is why it was not hard for Trump to pardon Arpaio; they are cut from the same cloth. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were annoyed with this move but promised not to relent in the search for justice.
