Where the editorial believes that the burka shouldn’t be banned because a better solution is needed, Singer and Pearson both argue that it should as it is degrading and a symbol of male dominance. The editorial makes use of short paragraphs to make their argument clear and concise. This is in contrast to the opinion piece which uses long paragraphs filled with loaded words to further emphasise the negatives the burka represents. The editorial sardonically points out the hypocritical nature of people in western countries, who believe the burka is a symbol of repression, yet they are competent with Islamic countries being invaded and used as mineral revenue. This is obviously in contrast to the letter to the editor and the opinion piece, who harshly suggest the burka to be banned, as it is a symbol of oppression, subservience and inequality.
On the event of 9-11, Malala is telling people there are some misunderstandings in different countries. After the terrorists attack the World Trade Center, fear of Islam rises in western world that they think Muslim countries are supporting this event. However, some religious men in Malala’s society are viewing Bin Laden as a hero that he gives a hard punishment to the US because the US government is doing bad things in other countries. To my surprise, Malala is telling a different opinion than others. She thinks the 9-11 event is terrorism because people in the World Trade Center have nothing to do with the policies of the US government and Muslims are told not to kill innocent people in the Quran.
This is why he concurs that life is not fair so deal with whatever our own lives throw at us now because that is is based off mainly on the decisions you devise. In the short story called, “The American Electoral Process,” Kubic explained to us about why he disagrees with how the Constitution and the Congress take all votes for every single state as well as being unalike in population and size in which he would tell of as
Throughout this article, President Donald Trump and the Republicans support the ban for the eastern Muslim refugees and non-United States citizens’ multiple visas. The author, Ismail Einashe, influences the reader to believe the ban is cruel and appeals to the readers’ emotions in the article, “For Dual Nationals, Trump’s Muslim Ban Is a Curse”. The statement, “The Trump ban has unfairly targeted people like me”, is a liberal bias because it makes you feel and believe the information before the writer states the evidence or support. Ismail comments that he was also born in Somalia and feels threatened by Trump’s ban. Ismail also includes his own personal bias, so this is another area where the writer has persuaded the reader to believe the
Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has told CNN that he feels that Muslims must not be elected as president. “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation”(Carson, 2015) Looking at this statement from Dr. Carson as a stereotyping comment one can say that he is a borderline racist only because he says that only a Christian should be elected. Since he has mentioned to CNN, USA Today, and other media outlets he has made it clear that his beliefs are firmed on not having a Muslim as an elected president. Recanting his statement on Muslims being elected Carson has noted since the presidential polls have dropped in numbers, he has said that the media took his words and mixed them up (Carson, 2015). Looking at his last
The book, “America Swastika: Inside the white power movement’s hidden spaces of hate” by Pete Simi and Robert Futrell, was written 2010. I chose this book because I am interested in learning about why these racist groups have so much hate towards another race or group. Personally, I do not condone racism because it does not make sense to me as to how one person can hate another one without knowing them. I wanted to learn about how people who are in groups such as, the Ku Klux Klan, live in our country which is identified as a melting pot. White power movements are talked about in our history books and are explained as if they are in the past, but they aren’t.
Anyone physically different from themselves, the people of Waknuk regard as “abominations” and insulting to the pure image of God based on a fallible old book; Nicholson’s Repentances. Likewise, anyone of a different religious sect, Daesh slaughters with out of context rulings from their religious book. The KKK discriminates against people of colour, regarding them in a very similar way to the way the people of Waknuk regard Deviations. Moreover, calling the Old People’s society (probably secular) a state of “[prevailing] irreligious arrogance” displays their belief that only one way of being is acceptable, and anything else is worthy of punishment (Wyndham 40). Not only does this exist on a blatant scale as we see with these extreme groups, it also exists in many countries like Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Iran.
Despite claiming to be an activist against racism, Carson has stated that he does not believe a Muslim should be allowed to be president of the United States. In an article written June 2015, Carson states, “Racism was once epidemic in America, but through struggle, sacrifice, soul-searching and meaningful social change, we have made much progress. Clearly, the struggle is far from finished, and we must own up to that fact and that challenge.” Many media outlets have called him a hypocrite, saying although he claims to be an activist, he is being racist when stating that Muslims should not be president. Carson has not backed down from his statement, believing that a Muslim president would be a terrorist attempting to attack the United States. Despite his controversial stance on this issue, Carson has only risen in the polls, destroying Trump’s major lead.
The people who are against immigration want it to get rid of it or they want it to be extremely limited in our country. One person who talked about how limiting immigration and stopping people from coming to the United States is a good change for us is David Goldman. In his article “President Trumps Immigration Ban is Magnificently Right” Goldman says that Trumps 90-day travel ban is “callous towards individual Muslims but merciful to American citizens, who have the right to go about their business without fear of mass terrorist attacks.” (Paragraph 3). Being against immigration because of the fear or extra crime and terrorism seems to be one of the main reasons for people in the United States to be against it. In the last election it was one of President Trumps main areas of focus.
For example, muslims who escape to America because their towns are being destroyed by bombs and other weapons are seen as members of ISIS. Not all Muslims are terrorists, and today, people say they are terrorists because they are afraid. Republican Donald Trump further emphasizes that America should be aware of muslims and since he has an authoritative position in the society, people listen to him. No one should have to live in fear of being accused for something they did not do, but we can all hope that one day the world sees us as humans with rights and
