In the 19th century, racism is a common issue that was not being treated seriously. There are a variety of ethnic groups within the United States itself, and each group is treated differently depending on their skin color. Many serious cases that happened including insults and or even as far as murders. The majority looking down at the minority was considered as a normal thing, however, the formidable groups do not even have the right and the strength to speak up for themselves.

We watched several videos containing a variety of people discussing their own personal thoughts and feelings on such terms to spark our own conversations on the same topics.

Shaheen (1983) showed how the American media uses ugly and negative stereotypes of Arabs.Through “editorial cartoons, television shows, comic strips, newspapers and even in novelty merchandise” (p. 328), Arabs were virtually dehumanized and depicted as the “bad guys.” targeted and given the stereotypical image of Arabs in American media.
