These innocent Muslims from London went to their holy mosque just to be met by the man that would attempt to kill them solely because of their religion. An article called, “Teens are Often hated recruits” by Tamara Koehler and Tom Kisken, establish the idea that, “the most religiously motivated hate crimes are acts of vandalism, and personal attacks are directed against Muslims” (Koehler 2). The question is why Muslims suffer from so many hate crimes? Muslims are blamed for immigration crisis in many countries because it’s another group that the whites have to compete against and are considered a threat. Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1).
It wasn’t long before other ministers in the Nation were also making incendiary speeches about Malcolm. Another conflict Malcolm had with the Nation was regarding his home in Elmhurst, Queens. The Nation of Islam attempted to evict Malcolm from the home by bringing an eviction case against him. In court, Malcolm once more publically mentioned that the reason for his suspension was because “the Honorable Elijah Muhammed had taken on nine wives besides the one that he had…” (Marable 347). This only helped to make matters worse between the two groups.
So, if everyone knows that lying has consequences, then why do people even lie in the first place? In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee answers this question. The main characters in this book are two kids named Jem and Scout, as well as their father named Atticus. The book takes place in the 1930’s when segregation and racial injustice were prominent. Therefore, when Atticus is appointed to defend a African American man, named Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping a white woman, it is a big deal.
One of the reasons why Trump isn’t fit to become president is because he promotes violence, as shown throughout several of his rallies. In the article, “Donald Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies. His Fans Are Listening,” by Sam Stein and Dana Liebelson, the authors wrote about how a video released showed a gang of men kicking and punching a Black Lives Matter protester at a Trump rally, to which Donald Trump Responded with, “Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing(Diamond).” In other words, supporters of Trump thought it was appropriate to attack a protester all because he disrupted his speech. As a potential leader, Donald Trump shouldn’t have advocated for the violence at his rally just because the person didn’t agree with him.
The general argument made by Jamie Dailey in “Modern- day Witch Hunts: Broadly targeting the Muslim Community is antithetical to America’s founding ideas” is that after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 the Muslim Community seems to be targeted. More specifically, Dailey is stating that the irrational fear and paranoia present in American Society causes racial and religious discrimination of the Muslims. Dailey writes about mosques, which are Islamic places of worship, and how they have been recently targeted. Dailey writes, “ In Glendale, Arizona, a bottle filled with acid was thrown at a mosque while mosque officials stood nearby. In Bridgeport, Connecticut, protestors picketed a mosque celebrating Ramadan and shouted slurs”
To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee in 1960 ,is one of the most controversial novels between society and school boards. School boards across the country question whether Lee’s novel should be taught in classrooms, or if it should be banned because of the vulgar language and inappropriate context throughout the book. To Kill a Mockingbird revolves around a white family who is living in the south, and the narrator 's dad is a lawyer. His latest case is to defend a black man in court who had allegedly raped a white woman. Throughout the book a lot of harsh language was used, along with ideas that may be considered inappropriate.
There’s more to it than just the attack. The events that took place on 9/11 increased islamophobia in america, this is evident because a rise in hate crimes, and bullying in schools took place after the attack. After 9/11 there was a concerning increase in hate crimes against people of the muslim faith. The government was saying, “President Donald Trump first tried to stop
Although Trump is nearly “too buffoonish to caricature, with political opinions too unsettling to make light of”, his rhetorical style is so inaccurate it practically begs to be parodied, at least in the period when him getting elected President of the United States seemed impossible (Czajkowski). In this period, the humor utilized in mocking Donald Trump is
Senator Joseph McCarthy was a merciless politician who would be censured by the Senate in 1954 for his false accusations. However, his political journey throughout the country had a significant impact on the American public. Americans let fear override their conscious and allowed a bully to insert panic into their minds. McCarthy’s crusade was powerful and convinced the naive public during a time of war to question their own government without sufficient
White supremacists were arguing against the removal of the monument. The statue, for them, represents white military and political power. For their opponents, or the individuals arguing for the removal of the monument, the statue signifies the oppression of African Americans under slavery. After much display of aggression, the citizens who were present were involved in physical fighting, which resulted in thirty-four injuries and one death. With this exhibition of violence, the government should not have to think twice about removing the monument.
After nearly fifty days in the White House, President Trump has done an excellent job. On his second day in office he vowed to destroy the Islamic State, and on his ninth day he fulfilled his promise of a 5 year-ban on officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government, and a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government, which was a promise kept. (foxnews.com) My favorite quote by my President Trump is “My policy is to learn from the past, focus on the present, and dream about the future."
