Although muslims receive an excessive amount of hate, immigrant citizens do as well. According to Southern Poverty Law Center, “Anti-immigrant hate groups are the most extreme of the hundreds of nativists and vigilante groups that have proliferated since the late 1990s when anti-immigration xenophobia began to rise to levels not seen in the United States since the 1920s. New York Times stated “There are 11 million people living under the law.” Some will bring violence and some will continue to try and assimilate to american culture. There are some anti-immigrant groups that seem to promote white
There are many crimes that are committed in today's society, but one big crime that is committed every single day are hate crimes. Hate crimes are consisted of any criminal offense against a person, property, or society that is motivated by the offenders bias against race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin (Schmalleger, 2014). I've chosen to pick religion and race to write about and how much it can change someone else's life. Religion has always been a controversial topic, because of all the different religions and some people not being religious. The Uniform Crime Reporting Program stated that in 2012, there were 1,340 victims of an anti-religious hate crime.
It has seeped into most every community imaginable; in fact it is so widespread that most people do not know that they are being antisemitic. From American liberals to the LGBT community, antisemitism is everywhere. This subject is even more prevalent after the 60% increase of Antisemitic incidents from 2016 to 2017. According to CNN Wire, in 2017 there were “163 bomb threats towards Jewish community centers, 1,015 cases of harassment, 952 of vandalism, and 19 cases of assault”(para 11). Many of the vandals proclaimed the Holocaust never happened, destroyed Jewish gravesites, and spat slurs at Jews.
According to a report by the CDC over 35,000 people were killed by guns in 2015. ( National Vital Statistics Reports) Over the years gun control has been a controversial topic about how to control, restrict, and ban firearms in the United States, this affects several people who fall in the middle of the gun control spectrum. Due to news and media sources who try to make headlines, people think that guns are all bad and that it would be better to get rid of them. In truth, a gun is a deadly weapon that needs little strength and experience to use; when first introduced to war, it became the deadliest weapon ever as anyone could use it. Today there are many ways for people to obtain a gun legally and illegally; it all comes down to how much money
Whether it’s race, religion, gender, etc., many people encounter bigotry in different ways. Islam is one of the religions that is discriminated against the most because of the stereotypes people have brought upon it. Muslims have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at the airport from the assumption that all Muslims are terrorists. There have been many recent reports of people discriminating against Muslims (violently or not), proving that it’s still happening in society today. The film Remember the Titans deals with the idea of discrimination, specifically racism, in America very well.
Rhetorical Analysis of ISIS Is Weak In the now viral video that came out three days after the Paris attacks which resulted in 130 murders and over 300 injuries, reporter Waleed Aly states, “ISIL is weak” this statement something most people have difficulty to accept due to recent events that have put most of the world, mainly the west in a state of fear. Aly continues to build his argument pointing out that even though ISIL claims responsibility for the attacks, its should be known this is a reoccurring tactic for them, they take credit for any attack done on western soil to appear bigger, tougher, and stronger than what they really are, they did the same when there were attacks in Canada, New York, and Australia. The reporter goes on to say that ISIL did not control their attackers, because according to their magazine, “it is important that the killing becomes attributed to patrons of the Islamic state who have obeyed its leadership. This can be easily done with anonymity.
Crimes committed against those who do no wrong, prejudices such as the terrors of burnings, lynchings, and decapitation are crimes of hate; the crimes that are motivated only by way of race, sexual orientation, disability, and many other stereotypes are those that are unforgivable. They serve no purpose but to humiliate, injure, and threaten. These crimes are the bane of society, but the role of authorities on matters of hate crimes has become blurred in a world of increasing violence of prejudice. Free speech and unprotected hate speech have come under review, and still violence increases. All of these statements beg the question: should the government more actively oppose hate speech?
“19% of respondents said they had been called offensive names in the past year compared to 22% in 2011 and 15% in 2007, and the pattern and numbers were roughly similar for Muslims who said they had been singled out by airport Security officials"(Green). After the incident that occurred on September 11th 2001 airport security has been increased but mostly for Muslims only. The strictness of security only increased for Muslims who had been singled out by airport security. "half of American say Islam is not part of "mainstream American society" and 41% say Islam encourages violence more than any other faiths"(Green). Because of previous terroristic Acts by terrorist groups, violence is now associated with Islam.
In actuality, these individuals are just as hurtful and malicious as hate crimes are because they demonstrate irrational fears such as homophobia and xenophobia, as well as, portray a very dogmatic attitude toward people who oppose their antiquated adherences. Therefore, mankind’s passage through time seems to progress backwards from innovation and compassion when it comes to crimes of hatred, bias and prejudice. In fact, the sheer number of hate crimes that victims still continue to experience today demonstrates society’s obstinate intolerance against religion, race, origin or colour, and sexual orientation. The deliberate act of partaking in bias-motivated
