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). The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
It was then found that “Half the study participants had depression serious enough to warrant further assessment. A quarter reported moderate to severe anxiety. Those rates are higher than those of the general public and other minority groups, says Amer, citing ongoing racial profiling, discrimination and other stressors unique to Arabs as causes” (Clay 2011). And despite the Arab-Americans receiving death threats from strangers, Clay also reports, "I saw articles online where people were saying if they are depressed, that means they 're crazy and shouldn 't even be living in this country." However, muslims were not the only ones affected by Religious Hate Crimes.
There are many Muslims that come to America for a better life, yet even if a small percentage of those coming to America are radical, the consequences are far-reaching. A small group of these immigrants, can enter highly populated areas and kill many people like they did in the Boston Marathon Bombing terrorist attack. When these homicidal murderers come to
Islamophobia and Media Written by Anis Adrina Md Nor The contemporary perception of people especially Western people towards Islam have been negative as there are a lot of media reports on Muslims’ hostile acts. During the event when there is any terrorists attack, people would immediately relate it with Muslims and Islam although the fact about the attack is unclear. The prejudice against Muslim started even before the 9/11 attacks in the United States, however, the events and other violence actions by terrorists after that period has caused an increase in anti-Muslim attitudes in many countries. This anti-Muslim sentiment also has been contributed by the modern media framing of Islam where Muslims are pictured primarily as dangerous, hostile,
Murder. The unlawful premeditated killing of one human by another. Jack the Ripper is a serial killer phenomenon that has stunned everyone since his first attack. With a target of prostitutes and a habit of eating organs, he has amazed everyone with the reasoning for his job. The mystery behind the gruesome, cannibalistic murders from Jack the Ripper can be summed up by two suspects: Aaron Kominski and Severin Klosowski.
Hate is everywhere! Everywhere you turn there will always be people who hate you, your ideas, or everything. As a High School student, hate surrounds me in digital forms and physical forms. I see bullies in real life and homophobic people on my Twitter Timeline. They both share one thing in common: the first amendment.
I am an eighth grade student at Sandcreek Middle School. I would like to inform you of the fact that members of the LGBTQ+ ( lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, etc.) community are constantly being discriminated at your school, so I, and many other students at this school, would like you to help stop it. To start, one issue is the slurs that have been going around this school that are constantly to objectify those in the LGBTQ+, and it has become quite a problem. Walking around Sandcreek Middle School I often hear students saying phrases such as “That’s gay” referring to it as if it were another word for stupid, or calling each other “queer” and “faggot” as a way to address their friends.
Most street gangs fight one another because the other has somehow “disrespected” them. They get into these pointless fights and hurt others in the battle. They would go after family members in that gangs and would even kill each other for these fights, no wonder the FBI is involved. Fifty-seven percent of gangs are drug gangs. They create drugs, transport them, and sell them to others.
These fears came also with the communities thinking about terrorism. “Negative views of refugees are tied to negative views about Muslims. In all 10 EU countries surveyed, people who have a more negative view of Muslims are also much more concerned about the threat of refugees to their country. For example, in the UK, 80% of those who have an unfavorable opinion of Muslims say refugees leaving Iraq and Syria are a major threat to their country. Most refugees in Europe come from nations that are predominantly Muslim.” (Poushter,2016) Communities were scared that these people were going to come and harm or terrorize their communities.” A median of 59% across 10 EU countries voice concern about the prospect of increased terrorism.
Schools ignore their needs and fail to ensure they get the same academic and extracurricular benefits as non- transgender students. LGBTQ students also lack support from their friends and family and have to deal with negative messages and attitudes at school. Students suffer from abuse as being shoved into lockers, being mocked and called names such as faggots, cocksuckers, etc. Almost 98.1% LGBTQ students heard the word “gay” be used on a negative way and felt harassed by it and about 82% LGBTQ students experienced verbal harassment at school in general (Kosciw, Greytak, Giga, Villenas, & Danischewski,2016) Students don 't even report assaults most of the time because school staff don 't really do anything about it and the situation can get worse. Discrimination in schools against LGBTQ students affects their academic success and mental health.
Images of Muslims are constantly recycling in American culture, whether accurate or neutral, images of Muslims presented in mainstream media and cultural forms are usually tied to terrorism. Although they existed before, stereotypes have emerged since 9/11. The reaction to them has increased, they are seen in movies, news media, political debates, and it distorts the way every Muslim is now seen. Peter Morey and Amina Yaqin in Framing Muslims: Stereotyping and representation after 9/11, suggest that Muslims tend to always appear as a problematic presence whenever they are represented.Stereotyping fixes certain characteristics, Muslims are now stigmatized as a threatening to society. Agreeing with what Morey and Yaqin have to say, Mohammed Saleem and Michael Thomas studied the reporting of September 11th terrorist attacks in textbooks and found that Muslim Americans are misrepresented.
There are many fake assumptions that people from the US assume about muslim people. People think since one person did something bad that everyone of that religion is the same. Now muslim people can have a harder time getting onto planes because they now have to deal with stereotypes caused by events like 911. Altho some muslims can fit under those assumptions, it doesn 't mean that every muslim does. Not all americans make this assumption either.
When a Muslim is titled a terrorist or an African American is labeled as a thug, society generalizes that group of people and says that is what the entire group of people are. This type of criticism has lead to the discrimination of cultures and races in the United States. With the recent terrorist attacks occurring around the United States, it has only strengthened the stereotype against Muslims. These actions
In Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11 the author states, “Arabs are caught between Census categories (where they appear as "white") and reality, between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ (Suhay136). Because of 9/11 many Arab/Muslim Americans are placed into another category, resulting in many Arab/Muslims feeling unwanted in their own lands even though they hold US passports. Often times the 9/11 attacks is said to have united the Americans, but many Muslim/Arab Americans who lived in the US for many years were not allowed to share the same grief many Americans did, but instead, many Muslim Americans were looked upon as terrorists
The question “What is a serial killer?” can thoroughly be dissected; but to keep it simple a serial killer is a person who murders people due to abnormal psychological gratification. Serial killers date back from the time of 144 BC. Prince Jidong would go on wild expeditions of killing his subjects and stealing their belongings purely as a sport. Years later, the spree of killing still countinues. In the 1970’s, America was introduced to who would become the worlds most famous serial killers, John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy.
