Nevertheless, whether terrorism has a religion or not is definitely not what I am here to write about. Discrimination in any shape or form should not be tolerated, it must be stopped. Islamophobia has severely increased discrimination in our world; likewise, biased views against not only Muslims but also non-Muslims are becoming a norm nowadays. You might ask how? Well, due to the unbelievable indoctrination of our people through social media and politics, anyone who looks like they are from the Middle East and has a beard, is a terrorist.
Over time, people change the way they view themselves and the world they live in. Globalization exacerbates this situation by providing a platform for the ideologies to spread and influence more people. This borderless platform allows terrorists to reach their global goal by promoting their ideology to people all over the world. Victims that fall for this ideology when they feel that this way of thinking is more purposeful what they have now. By committing themselves to such a cause, they drive the radicalization process.
In Al Gore’s “The Assault on Reason,” many topics are presented to get his argument across. Gore’s thesis is not fully revealed in the essay, but one can infer it is about the people needing to wake up and realize what is happening.

Through this section, Gross spoke about how laws existed to protect people, but black women were considered to be extremely sexual beings thus the law said that black women did not deserve to be protected. Gross used the experience of a woman named Hester and the using this experience in Gross’s writing made the talk about slavery much more effective. Furthermore, women were actually punishable by death if they choose to fight against their captors. Which further discussed the issues of being denied protection but fatally condemned by it at the same time. The last argument that Gross makes discussed how even though there were less African American living in a city compared to Caucasian or Latinos, but, female African Americans still took up 47.5% of prisoners.
For example, the report cover the terrorist acts are being done by ISIS. (ISIS) “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria." Therefore, this gives people who do not know the truth a wrong image about Islam because all of Islam is being represented as a religion that is all about killing innocent people and terrorism. Also, the terrorist act of 9/11 was described in the news as an act by Islam. As a result, the report misleads the audience to think that all Muslims are terrorists, and people’s knowledge was all based on bias and misrepresentation images by network news.

“But because of affirmative action or minority something—she is not sure what they are calling it these days and weren’t they supposed to get rid of it?,” writes Claudia Rankine in her critically acclaimed American book, Citizen. Within this quote, Rankine begins to showcase the narrative of a black women in a society that strives to be color blind. Affirmative action has caused controversy as it threatens white supremacy since it favors diversity. The bitter attitude towards affirmative action expressed by whites, causes people of color to feel apologetic for their achievements and opportunities. Claudia Rankine reveals how white supremacist attitudes trigger people of color to live their life in an apologetic nature through the short stories of the cafeteria, the neighbor calling the police, and the Serena William’s celebratory dance.
For example, a women’s share of inheritance is usually half of that of a man’s of the same degree of kinship, and before the advent of Islam, females received none. Also when looking at family laws, it is very difficult for women to get a divorce and oftentimes have to try and persuade her husband to divorce her, doing this by giving up her bride gift or threatening to make a claim against him. There are many more laws that oppress women and this needs to change because women deserve to make their own legal choices and men should not be able to get away with more. Because Islamic law relates to religion and because too many, their laws are the words of God, it is easier to justify the mistreatment of women by saying that it is warranted under scriptures like the Qur’an or the Hadith. By having Muslim governments grant women equal rights by giving them the ability to make their own decisions on who to marry, who to divorce, and provide them with the same accessibility to family finances, women would be viewed as equals rather than incapable children who need guardians or men to make decisions for
Hair back then if to kinky was deemed to be ugly and unruly and eventually became a source of shame. Nothing much since then until today has changed when it comes to the black hair movement, the kinks and the natural curls are seem to be less desirable than the relaxed bone straight hair you seen when flipping through a magazine. Both the mainstream and black community see African American women with long weaves and silky perms. Yet, we read about black women being barred from aircrafts or being deprived of employment opportunities because of their natural locks. As Paul Mooney stated, “ If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed, if your hair is nappy then they’re not happy” The divulging of the African American beauty is at a all time high, hair in the African American community has always been political tactic to establish more European features, especially when it comes to maintaining long silky hair and also keeping that mainstream status quo.
