The reason why the war began is because of political disagreements by the citizens of the Syrian state. The citizens rebelled at the Capital that unfortunately they were being fired at by the security and killed from the firing. The violence in Syria has caused millions to flee their homes. The ultimate reason that was stated was violence, 320,000 people were killed which frightened the refugees. The mass flight of refugees will keeping growing when the war in Syria and Iraq keeps happening.
People assume that because someone is Islam or Muslim that they must be a terrorist, and they become weary of them to protect themselves. These situations demonstrate how permitting self-preservation to lead to hysteria causes destruction and hurt throughout the community. If not fixed, these situations will lead the destruction of the world. The theme of hysteria and self-preservation is evident throughout The Crucible and in real life.
Conversely, under hate crime legislation it is clear to see that the prosecution of hate crimes further divides society by reinforcing the marginalisation of minority groups. Advocates with ideologies akin to this state that all violent crimes are the result of the offender’s absolute contempt for the victim of the hate crime. In such cases like this, all crimes are hate crimes and if no alternate rationale for prosecuting some people more harshly than others for the same crime based on who the victim is, a situation arises where different offenders charged with the same offence are treated unequally under the law which inadvertently creates discrimination, prejudices and unfairness in society.
Tyler Oakley once said, in his book Binge,“This is why homophobia is a terrible evil: it disguises itself as concern while it is inherently hate.” This is one of the most important topics the world is facing: Homophobia. Homophobia is the fear & hating of people in the LGBTQ+ community. People in this community face discrimination from all around them. However, I believe this shouldn’t be the case.
Anthony Pfeiffer Mr. West Sophomore English 1/21/16 Genocide in the World Today The word genocide is the combination of the Greek word "geno" (meaning tribe or race) and “caedere” (the Latin word for to kill).

Many countries are still facing the problem of genocide because it directly relates to people 's beliefs and ideas, where they think that
If you and your family were to be treated horribly because of your religion or race, how would you feel? Elie Wiesel, author of Night, describes how he and his father had to undergo a tedious and exhausting experience because of their religion, Judaism. This was during the Holocaust where Jews, homosexuals, Gypsies, Blacks, and others who didn’t fit the Nazi’s desired idea of humans were being sent to Concentration camps. At the camps, the prisoners were forced to do labor and were rarely fed; the prisoners who weren’t strong enough were killed. Elie’s faith waivered throughout his journey; the only thing that kept him going was his father.
INTRODUCTION Racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia have become a phenomenon in our society and it is affecting all people from around the world.

Looking at xenophobia people often mistaken it with racism these two are very different, xenophobia covers any kind of fear related to an individual or group perceived as being different.

Often time’s people are posed with questions as to why people can do such evil things to others. For example, one can take a look at what serial killers to do to people. There have been many serial killers that have made national news.

Those who commit such heinous crimes don’t value morals but rather their acts and their own sick reasons why they chose to commit them.
This case has caused a lot of disturbance in communities because people believed it was some sorts of racism. This case relates to the Witch Hunt because of reputations created by societies and people, which then lead to a false accusation taking the life of a young boy who
Introduction Colin Ferguson was convicted of the December 7, 1993 shooting of 25 people aboard the Long Island Rail Road commuter train out of Penn Station at Merillon Avenue station in Garden City, New York, New York. He killed six and wounded nineteen before being stopped by three of the passengers: Kevin Blum, Mark McEntee, and Mike O'Connor. Ferguson's trial was notable for a number of unusual developments, including his firing of his defense counsel and insisting on representing himself and examining himself as a live witness. Before the trial, William Kunstler and Ron Kuby attempted to argue that Ferguson was driven to mental illness through years of living in an oppressive and racist society.
A criminal offense against a person or property motivated by a prejudice of race, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, or disability is defined as a hate crime. Imagine a person being killed in spite of the dislike for the color of the victim’s skin or their ethnicity. Or think about a criminal committing arson by setting a mosque on fire for the reason that they do not agree with the religious affiliations attached to the mosque. Both are clear examples of a hate crime, and hate crimes have been committed for hundreds of years dating back to, as Tom Strissguth (2003) identifies, 1649 (p. 104). Current hate crime laws that are in place have every good intention in mind to keep victims safe, but there are arguments from scholars
As stated in the introduction, the most well-known hate crimes have been against people of the African-American community. The most successful terrorist group that have committed hate crimes against African- Americans in the United States has been the Ku Klux Klan.

Do you imagined how the world was on time ago like 1930s, 1950s and 1960s. In the article ‘’The Next Civil Right Movement’’ and the book ‘’To Kill a Mockingbird’’ are related with racism, prejudice, and discrimination. The world should be without racism and without discrimination! People do not have the right to discriminate against others much less decide whether to kill him.
