Students at a Harvard studied rap music and “Study 1, direct replication of previous research, found that participants deemed identical lyrics more literal offensive and in greater need of regulation when they were characterized as rap compared to country”(Threatening). As the study shows, rap music has a negative effect and is offensive to many people who listen to it. It tends to be more violent than many other music genres. When this music is displayed to viewers, many of them are influenced by it: “Numerous studies spanning many years and involving thousands of participants clearly show that media violence is causally linked to increased aggression in individuals” (Anderson and Bushman 11), Since rap music is shown and played in the media, many people see it and the studies showed that media violence which could be categorized as rap music makes many people aggressive. Also, “there are many reasons why out of wedlock birth rates are rising.
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. If I had the option of changing the world, the one change I would make is stopping the discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ individuals because they face too much discrimination, some of them are extremely strong and powerful, and all face violence and sometimes murdering.
The study finds that black people may have poorer mental health as a result of two mechanisms: Firstly; chronic exposure to racial discrimination leads to more experiences of daily discrimination and secondly it results in an accumulation of daily negative events across various domains of life, from family, friends, health and finances. As stated by an online research, “A person’s whole world can change from experiencing discrimination and they can become depressed, anxious and mentally unwell. People who experienced the most racism also recorded the most severe psychological distress scores and more than 70% worried at least a few times a month that their family and friends would be victims of racism.” (VicHealth, 2009). In, addition,
However, even though they married quickly, the marriages did not last. As the boomers grow older, technology is changing and is vital part of life in todays society.

Introduction Employment discrimination is defined by acts that harm or disadvantage employees based on assumptions and stereotypes of their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and age. In 2014, approximately 3% of Canada’s population self-identified as being part of the LGBT community, and the LGBT community experiences more discriminatory acts than the bigger heterosexual group. Sexual minorities are also reported to have higher rates or risks for mental health issues such as, anxiety, depression, and self-harm. The paper argues that the LGBT community is at risk for poor mental health as they experience workplace discrimination due to heteronormativity and negative stereotypes. This social issue is also viewed from the
I. Introduction Hate crimes is a social problem that existed for many years already. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender is also one of the major victims of this kind of crime. An LGBT person is defined by their sexual orientation and that it changes as time passes by, that mostly depends on their culture and histories. Hate crimes which are also called bias crime are any act used to harm or intimidate others because of their race, religion, color, creed, gender or sexual orientation.
Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
In the recent years we have seen a surge of support and new laws being formed in favor of the LGBT community regarding same sex marriage and a equaltie over sexual preference. We have shown as a nation that people of all walks of life are entitled to equal treament under the constitution. Although we have made leaps in bounds on the positive side of the spectrum there is also eveidence that our LGBT counterparts expeience the same problems traditional relationships face. Domestic violence is an underlying problem within our society, often going unreported or sweeped under the rug as if it does not exist. Homosexuality is not a safeguard from being suseptable to domestic violence in fact studies have shown the exact oposite.
Same sex marriage should be allowed and not judge. Same sex marriage is such a controversial topic, ask anyone they will all have an opinion about same sex marriage. Everyone should be able to have the same rights in housing, jobs, public accommodations, and should have equal access to government benefits, equal protection of the law, then they should be able to get married. I will discuss arguments about same sex marriage; the real reason people oppose same sex marriage and statistics about same sex marriage. This topic should be interesting because this is a very relevant topic that has been discussed in politics and your everyday life for the last couple of years.
As we speak, transgender individuals are facing many difficulties, especially in teenagers and young adults. And it only worsens due to the fact that the society in Malaysia is somewhat conservative. For decades, it is not uncommon for transgender people to be discriminated, ridiculed and reviled by most people, as they are perceived under prejudice. This is because certain members of society thinks transgender people are suffering from mental illnesses, which is not the case. They are seen by society as freaks, mentally ill patients, people that are different from the norm.
