Jews were a main target in The Holocaust, but some other victims were Roma, Sinti, disabled, and any other opposing religions (Steele 7). In 1933 Jews could not own any land of their own. In 1936 if any Jews were employed as a government worker they were fired. In 1938 Jews got their own businesses taken away from them. Then in 1939, they were no longer allowed to own any gold or silver (Steele 26).
According to the website New York Daily News Mel Gibson stated while being drunk “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world (Sacks, 2016)”. Since Mel Gibson drunken outburst in 2006, Mr. Gibson acting career still hasn’t recovered from the incident. Mr. Gibson has repeatedly apologized for his derogatory statements about Jews. However, many Jewish Americans haven’t forgiven the actor. It's hard for me to say Mel Gibson's commentary was an outburst of racism or an uncontrollable anger problem, Mr. Gibson said hateful comments while he was under the influence of alcohol.
It was held on June 28, 1969 in Stonewall Inn at Greenwich Village at Manhattan City, New York. Stonewall Inn is owned by Mafia and it provided a home of drag queens, transgenders, effeminate young men, butch lesbians, male prostitutes and homeless youth. It was considered as the most poor and marginalized people in the gay community. A year after of a series of demonstrations and riots, it was June 28, 1970 when the first Gay Pride March was held in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago. In today’s society, a lot has changed in terms of representing the LGBT and I believe that their community has now a solid foundation.
On History.com, the text states “This culminated in Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass” in November 1938, when German synagogues were burned and windows in Jewish shops were smashed; some 100 Jews were killed and thousands more arrested.” This quote shows the extent of how Jews were treated. I can’t imagine how the they were feeling at the time. It 's not even like they did anything, they were innocent. Once again, if all people were good at heart, then people wouldn’t be discriminated because of their race, religion, etc. Another quote on History.com states “Meanwhile, beginning in the fall of 1939, Nazi officials selected around 70,000 Germans institutionalized for
Japanese Crucible Clarence Drewa Hour: Last Over 127,00 U.S. citizens were imprisoned during World War 2 just because of having japanese ancestry. Putting the Japanese Americans into internment camps shows how there was hatred and unjust behavior towards one another in America. This is also shown in Arthur Miller’s play “The Crucible”. The Crucible and the Japanese internment camps also have something in common, they both were caused by hysteria and greed. In both of these incidents, the people that were being accused were average citizens.
Than later on the Nazies led by a man named Adolf Hitler and this man did not like the s and I 'm not meaning my family in specific he disliked Jews.

Topic Background France faces the problem of racism and racial discrimination. Although the 1958 French Constitution states “France is an indivisible, secular, democratic and social republic that assures equality in front of the law for all citizens, regardless of origins, race or religion.” nearly 40% of France’s population supports forcible repatriation of unemployed immigrants and 22% supports forcible repatriation of all immigrants. Racism in France affected a variety of racial groups. The Jews in France were vastly affected during World War 2 in 1940, when the Jews were denied jobs and banned from certain places such as restaurants and stores. In addition to this, they were forced to wear the Star of David when in public to signify that they were Jewish.
Renters staged demonstrations and succeeded in influencing the City Hall to enact rent control laws. However, the landlords overturned this provision through lobbying and abolishing rent control through a statewide ballot (“The Massachusetts Condominium Conversion Statute, Chapter 527 of the Acts of 1983” 1). The rent wars dominated the state politics for over twenty-five years as opposing camps struggled to elect their sympathizers in political office (Brady 15). The current arson scenarios experienced in several states imply underhand dealings among property owners. Rent regulations deny landlords the liberty to charge market rates for their houses, which leads to diminished profit margins.
In this paragraph, I will know highlight some examples of discrimination in this particular film. Discrimination is the imbalanced treatment of a person or a group of people based off of their sex, religion, race, culture, etc. There are many different types of discrimination in this movie but for this assignment, I will focus more on race. An example of discrimination is when Sandra Bullock and her politician husband are walking down the sidewalk together. Sandra notices two black men walking towards her and she gets nervous, and clutches her husband’s arm.
Racism is one of the hardest things to eradicate in a society. The believe you are superior to someone based on the color of your skin has existed for centuries. It is embedded in the minds of thousands of people. Sometimes we have preconceptions of certain cultures and expect of people from there to have the same habits or responses that we believe is a standard for certain races. Over a thirty-six hour period in Los Angeles, a handful of disparate people's lives intertwine as they deal with the tense race relations that belie life in the city.
