Seven forms of Bias Right Place, Wrong Face In “Right Place, Wrong Time,” Alton Fitzgerald White describes a horrible, injustice incident he had with the police to suggest that inequality is still very much active in America today. White was raised up as a young child on good, moral values. He was taught by his parents the proper actions that would lead to respect from others. White was falsely arrested at his apartment in Harlem. His perception on society changed from that day on because of the events that took place. The police were obviously very rude and ended up trying desperately to

find something guilty about White. The fact that only made matters worse, in this incident, was that White is a black man. He was at the bank, on a normal day, when all of sudden police barge in the building because they had been tipped that there were two Hispanics with guns in the bank. White was right near the door when the police came and thus was searched and treated as if he was the one that committed the crime. The situation got so absurd because White was even taken back to the station, along with the Hispanics. This is where the authorities began to act like hunters towards White. They made him strip down so they could search him. He was taken in and out of rooms for hours concerning questioning and handcuffing. White was finally released from prison but still in complete disarray and humiliation. White would never count on what he learned from his parents growing up in Cincinnati ever again because the world let him know that his values and morals, earlier on in life, meant nothing.

A woman that is retiring from her job in Georgia is moving back to her hometown of Michigan. When she first gets to her new apartment, everything is great, and the way of life is clean and refreshing. After about a year, a smoker moved in across the hall from her place. The woman, whose name was Ms. Wilson, life would change forever. The maintenance of the complex tried everything to accommodate Ms. Wilson,

such as finally moving her to another section of the entire apartment complex. This soon failed as more and more smokers moved in all around her. Ms. Wilson’s case is just one example of how new policies about smoking are arising across the nation. Today, apartment complexes are
