There will come a time where people that supports Trump, because of his discriminatory view on race, will act on those beliefs violently and without discrimination. Look no further. On March 11, 2016, Vanity Fair published an article titled “Donald Trump’s Rallies Are Becoming Increasingly Violent”. Bodily violence, whether real or suggested, has been a recurring theme of Trump’s rallies since the early days of his campaign. People are shoved and reportedly called racial slurs.
Therefore, strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them". But this is an ironic thing to think as the Bible has 842 verses that are cruel or violent (roughly 3%). Christians feared the Muslims because of this teaching calling for war against non-believers and as a result of this teaching Muslims were killing Christians and other religions in the Middle East. So the first justification was that the Christians should retaliate and kill them in return. The second justification was that these “barbarians” had taken territory belonging to the Christians especially holy sites such as Jerusalem.
In actuality, these individuals are just as hurtful and malicious as hate crimes are because they demonstrate irrational fears such as homophobia and xenophobia, as well as, portray a very dogmatic attitude toward people who oppose their antiquated adherences. Therefore, mankind’s passage through time seems to progress backwards from innovation and compassion when it comes to crimes of hatred, bias and prejudice. In fact, the sheer number of hate crimes that victims still continue to experience today demonstrates society’s obstinate intolerance against religion, race, origin or colour, and sexual orientation. The deliberate act of partaking in bias-motivated
Whether it’s race, religion, gender, etc., many people encounter bigotry in different ways. Islam is one of the religions that is discriminated against the most because of the stereotypes people have brought upon it. Muslims have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at the airport from the assumption that all Muslims are terrorists. There have been many recent reports of people discriminating against Muslims (violently or not), proving that it’s still happening in society today. The film Remember the Titans deals with the idea of discrimination, specifically racism, in America very well.
A phobia, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is an extremely strong dislike or fear of someone or something. Since the history of 9/11 terrorist attacks in the USA., a specific phobia has gripped in the Western population, which is Islamophobia. Many Americans grew up with the negative idea about Arabic speakers. However, Wajahat Ali’s “Inshallah is Good for Everyone,” published on April 22, 2016, in The New York Times shows a different perspective. Ali is a Pakistani American writer who was born in a Muslim family.
According to Peter Gregg Slater, ethnicity was a huge concern due to the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and strict immigration laws. In his essay, “Ethnicity in The Great Gatsby,” he states that concern for differences in ethnicity plays a big part in this novel. Tom Buchanan, Daisy’s husband, is the most judgmental, racist character. He recites passages from Lothrop Stoddard’s The Rising Tide of Color against World White Supremacy, identified by a different title and author (Goddard’s “The Rise of the Colored Empires”). He attacks Gatsby with racist remarks during their confrontation near the end of the novel.
This past week, Donald Trump was elected our president. During his campaign, he has promoted the hatred toward those who are considered the other. In the novel, Invisible Man, by Ralph Ellison, he writes about the placement of minorities in society dominated by whites where people are categorized by their skin color/race. I’m sure by now we have all heard of the tragic Michael Brown shooting
Because of ISIS, too many Americans think that all Muslims are dangerous terrorists, which is completely untrue. Muslim children all over America do not want to go to school because they fear that they will get picked on in school. This is not the America that Paine described in his book, Rights of Man. What is happening today is the complete
Crimes committed against those who do no wrong, prejudices such as the terrors of burnings, lynchings, and decapitation are crimes of hate; the crimes that are motivated only by way of race, sexual orientation, disability, and many other stereotypes are those that are unforgivable. They serve no purpose but to humiliate, injure, and threaten. These crimes are the bane of society, but the role of authorities on matters of hate crimes has become blurred in a world of increasing violence of prejudice. Free speech and unprotected hate speech have come under review, and still violence increases. All of these statements beg the question: should the government more actively oppose hate speech?
The D in Donald is for Disaster In heat of the upcoming Presidential Election, the United States has become extremely divided based upon who is supporting whom. Being as opinionated as us Americans can be, a lot of inappropriate things have been said from both the candidates and their supporters. One candidate in particular whose opinions have affected the most people, is also leading in the polls, Donald Trump. I think if Donald Trump becomes our 47th president our government will be a racist, unjust, dictatorship. Donald Trump has made it extremely clear that he himself is a racist, so in result his government supporting him will be the same thing.
One of the biggest issues in our country today is terrorism. Many Americans are surrounded by fear of potential attacks and many more have ideas and perceptions of Muslims rooted in their mind. Yet these thoughts play a major role in racism and islamophobia, thoughts that could contribute to more terrorism, and more harmful impacts on our Muslim brothers and sisters. Muslim communities have been under intense surveillance, mapping and identifying neighborhoods where many Muslims preside. Kamalakar Duvvuru, who teaches the New Testament in India, says, “In 2007 the Los Angeles Police Department [LAPD] launched an extensive mapping program to identify Muslim enclaves across the city.
300359810 Mrs. Fahey ERWC 12-Period 2 14 September 2015 Racial Profiling Racial discrimination is becoming a major problem in today 's society. Our nation is facing problems based on the discrimination on race, ethnicity, religion or national origin. Racial profiling is a clear violation of the civil rights of the United States. The use of racial profiling has caused major issues and has had a huge impact among our nation. This has influenced a lot of hate and killing towards different type of race, religion, etc.
The laws continued by taking away “full political rights in accordance with the provision of the law” (NSDAP 1.2.3). The discrimination continued taking away more and more rights. The labels created by people evolved into laws and turned to discrimination. The repercussion of the labeling leading to discrimination was genocide on the Jewish race. The repercussions of labels leading to discrimination in modern times are controversial violence, as shown by international events like the formation of ISIS as well as domestic ones like the Ferguson and Boston Riots.
/11 changed the way of American life. Many lives were lost due to the awful attack, but unfortunately many Arab and Muslim Americans had to pay for the cost. Post 9/11 is a continuous struggle for many Muslim Americans. Due to 9/11 many Muslims face discrimination, racial prejudice, and hate crimes. All throughout our history, hate crimes were targeted towards minority groups, such as: African Americans, Latinos, Italians, Irish, Germans, and Asians; today, hate crimes are targeted towards Muslims.
An article by Lucia Graves recalls numerous accounts of violence in which black protestors or immigration activists were punched, kicked, or attacked by other Trump supporters. In addition, Trump openly justified these aggressive acts against protesters as somewhat necessary by stating, "We 've had some violent people as protesters" (Graves). Trump has elicited a strong response from his supporters, propagating negative sentiments towards the created out-group of Muslims and Latinos. By dismissing or remaining in denial on the issue, he is unknowingly condoning the continuation of aggression and polarization among voters. Heedlessly promoting the overgeneralization of groups like Muslims and Mexicans serves as yet another obstacle in the way of a post-racial society.
