Statistics from 2016 show that the ‘frequency of hate crimes in America are increasing as the frequency of regular crimes in America are decreasing’ (FBI 1). In this day and age minority groups are starting to become the target of the people who commit these crimes. Consequently the main minority groups such as (Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, Jewish people, LGBT, and others) have been pushing to have hate crime laws passed in order to protect them and others from violence.

The most glaring example of antisemitism from the European left is the UK Labour Party. Jeremy Corbyn, the Marxist party leader, infamously called Hamas and Hezbollah “friends” back in 2016. A poll from this past August shows that over 80% of British Jews believe the Labour Party has an antisemitism problem, while a mere 19% believed the same about PM May’s center-right Conservatives. Thus far, America has largely been spared from this wave of left-wing antisemitism.

“Ammon seized the opportunity provided by the Ninth Circuit’s decision to advocate the Bundian interpretation of the Constitution and its public-land ramifications” (Blumm & Jamin, 2017, p. 16). Bundy and his followers loudly challenged federal ownership of land as unconstitutional, and they helped spread news of their actions and ideologies by using social media. With the recent rise of social media in the last decade, its ability to attract scores of anti-government protestors in short amounts of time makes the Malheur occupation the biggest challenge to the federal government’s power over public land yet. After the six-week long insurgency, about 26 occupants were arrested and one was killed in a confrontation with law enforcement after a car
The Hard Spoken Reality At Middlebury College, hundreds protested the speaker Charles Murray because of what they believe to be his racist views on economics. In Murray’s book The Bell Curve, he asserts that the difference in economic standing between races is caused by a difference in intellect and that one race is intellectually inferior to the other. One would expect this blatant racism to cause a backlash and protests, however, over 20 years after the book was written in 1994, there are still rampant protests of Charles Murray; protests which have only intensified in the past year due to the election of Donald J Trump. At Claremont McKenna College, students protested Heather Mac Donald, a strong advocate of a more aggressive stance on crime, including police tactics that opponents say crack down too harshly on black men and perpetuate a war on the police.
He remarks that while the European Union (EU) tries to transcend the state without necessarily having the properties of one. This has led to widespread Euroscepticism within its borders, challenging Brussel’s authority. A poll conducted by the Pew Research Center showed that only 51% of respondents across ten EU member states supported it. This sentiment is augmented by the refugee crisis, which has strengthened nationalistic and anti-immigrant sentiment among some political groups, the most prominent being the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), who increased their support the most by percentage between the 2000 and 2015 parliament elections ("Results of the 2015 General Election"). Meanwhile in the Middle East, he observes that the infighting between various religious and ethnic groups has undermined the stability of the individual states, even going as far as to call them failed states.

Despite our superiority, America still has a plethora of problems from within, one of them is a corrupted system of law enforcement. Our own law enforcement is one of the factors contributing to America’s downfall. What people think is keeping them safe is really just hurting them behind their backs. A publicist by the name of Shaun King has taken note that so far as of July 17, 2017, 660 people have been killed by police or some type of law enforcement. That would make this year alone to be one of the deadliest years since people had begun tracking this statistic back in 2013.

Every person has a story. A story that is more complex than what we believe to be. A story that does not only have a beginning, middle, and end but as well has obstacles, achievements, and characters that have to face everything that life throws at them. However, some people are quick to judge and stereotype people based on their appearance and their diminutive amount of knowledge rather than listening. If people listened, they would understand the history and lives of the immigrants that call the United States their home.
Living in the 1920s was a struggled with attitudes of racism and discrimination towards immigrants whom people blamed for many social and economic problems. Both in modern times and in the 1920’s there was a lot of discrimination against immigrants entering the United State.

Prejudice, it’s something humans all do naturally. Everybody, no matter what race, appearance and family history, have some level of prejudice against others. In the novel Of Mice and Men, Curley’s wife, Candy, and Crooks are discriminated against, ‘picked on’ and there are certain degrees of prejudice they are treated with.

Curley’s wife is a prime example of the type and degree of sexism and discrimination that women during that time were treated with.
