Abstract

Racial discrimination is one of the major issues that jeopardizes international relations and the country’s long-term development, and it has long been a source of concern and research among academics. The international community has gradually become more aware of the related crimes caused by racial discrimination. George Floyd, an African American man, died in the United States in 2020 as a result of violent law enforcement by white cops, igniting a global movement known as “Black Lives Matter.” This event demonstrates that, while racial discrimination has decreased in recent years, discrimination and inequality still exist in the daily lives of ordinary citizens, posing a significant barrier to the development and improvement of human activities. To address this problem, the law, as a symbol of equality, fairness, and justice, should take responsibility for eradicating inequity. As a result, this thesis will explain and evaluate how to use equal rights legislation and the reversal of the burden of proof, both of which are critical components of the legal system, to address racial disparities. Furthermore, the effectiveness and drawbacks of these two legal methods will be examined.
