The concerned citizens avoid bringing these issues to the attention of the general public, due to the inappropriate feedback they might receive. Although Wiesel suggests to “pick sides” (Wiesel, 1), everyone has a different preconception of who the victim is. For example, many ethnocentric people create stereotypes about First Nations, but that does not guarantee the validity of their statements. Everyone has diverse opinions about life, religion, and inequality issues. By posing negative opinions, one is increasing the probability of hate and threats against a certain group, such as the First Nations.
In China Mahayana Buddhism was greatly excepted by people who didn’t have a lot of stuff or people who wanted to reach nirvana but was greatly hated by others no only because it went against everything Confucianism believed in but also since it wasn 't a native religion. However, some people didn’t care if the two religions co-existed or blended together. Mahayana Buddhism in China was profoundly accepted by the lower class people who didn’t have much and liked the idea of giving up materialistic things to reach nirvana. In document 2 Zhi Dun supports Buddhism and talks about how Buddhism was the way to reach
Profiling puts barriers between citizens of a different races because judging someone only by their race gives one a pre-fixed opinion, thus making it difficult to create diversity in a community full of racist people who have created negative images of people. Racial profiling can bring people down in both a financial and personal way which leads to more racial profiling because being affected in these ways encourages one to continue profiling others as they have anger building up which needs to be released. Supporters of racial profiling argue that the use of demographics, statistics, and, information to capture criminals is justified. Also, that if a group commits a crime, they should be stopped. However, critics of the practice argue that the idea of one group committing more crimes than other groups is just untrue, information also points to the idea that profiling is wrong, both legally and ethically.
Because, they think that it is against the law and it supports the culprit to make a second attempt again. The experiment results showed that general public had totally negative opinion related the plea-bargaining, “two explanations where given first it was because the public favoured a more punitive policy when it came handling criminals and the second was that it was explained that the public viewed that the use of plea bargain as being too lenient on crime” (what is plea bargaining purpose it
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).
The Western Cape is run by the DA and the members in this community believe that the government is also punishing them for not voting for the ANC. Some members of the community also express that while they were discriminated against under the white government, they at least had jobs and an education, but under the rule of the new regime they are still experiencing discrimination and racism; however now they are also without money and an education. People in the community have learnt to live a life of high alert, as at any moment gang wars may break out and kill innocent victims in their cross-fire shooting. Most of the gangsters own taxis, as this is a “multi-million dollar” industry, and often taxi wars break out, because gangsters want to claim certain areas for their operation. Gang-owned taxis often drive around illegally without a taxi permit.
In his eyes, the lack of nationalism was a result of the conflicting ideas of the old and the new. In an excerpt from “The Final Awakening,” when he describes “the intense combat between the old and modern current thought,” (Chen, 1), Chen describes the struggle between the old and the new. China’s traditional ideas and customs have been lost due to an overhaul of Western influence. If nationalism were to present itself again, citizens would have to fall back on their traditions. “Why should I reject the desires and influential elders, who are all a part of the people, to build a constitutional republic” (Chen, 1).
In Chinese tradition, communities would join together during times of need to pray for the gods and ancestors for rain. To show their dedication to Christianity, the Christian converts “refused to participate in the rituals, [which made] their neighbours suspected that this was the reason the gods disregarded [the Chinese’] pleas for rain” (Szczepanski 1). This cause suspicion and distress to grow, with some Chinese calling that the last straw. This shows that the new people in their land was convincing the nationals of the Christian community’s superiority of the traditional Chinese belief. There was more and more tension between the Chinese and the outsiders, it was like the Americans were goading the Chinese into starting a fight.
This shows that although the Empress made reforms they were inadequate and were only introduced to “please both the Chinese people and foreign invaders.” (I) The Empress’ reforms were desperate, limited and failed to positively alter the middle and working class majority in China consequently leading to more unrest. The Empress’ intentions were not to develop the dynasty but to maintain power by gaining support from the internal and external community but she failed to do
Bringing light to European countries, a very small proportion of populations are Muslim and therefore they are often considered as outsiders. Such acts of terrorism have sparked a chain reaction, leading to Muslims being portrayed in a negative way in the media. As a result, those residing in Europe who are Muslims experience severe racism in the form of less job opportunities and general discrimination. Many Muslims have been receiving unjustified and hostile treatment simply due to their religious beliefs, especially in European nations. Such treatment towards Muslim people is a violation of one’s basic human right and may perhaps be a threat to cohesion within societies.
