These racist ideas that were brought about shaped America with a divide between whites and blacks. Race based oppression is by far the worst oppression because so many African Americans were brought to this country and were enslaved by white Americans. Children, teens, adults, and all Americans have heard of slavery and how terrible those 400 years were for African Americans but many people belittle the situation as a whole and like to believe the pain and inferiority is completely over. African Americans were taken in by wealthy white Americans and were forced to do
Alex Viamari Professor: Marcus Nicolas ENC1102 T/R 9 October 2014 Issue Analysis Paper Following our nation’s reconstruction, racist sentiments continued to occur and White on Black violence was prevalent throughout American society. Racism was still alive with the oppression of African Americans through the Jim Crowe laws. Deprived of their civil and human rights, Blacks were reduced to a status of second-class citizenship.

Consequently leading to false accusation of the Arabs not just causing hatred and violence, but also causing deep fear to those affected by such accusations. The media rarely portrays equality, “The absence of positive media images nurtures suspicion and stereotype” (Jack Shaheen, 1984). Media is the axes around which our lives have come to revolve around. Media, through all its different forms, in some way or another affects every being.

“Racism is a much more clandestine, much more hidden kind of phenomenon, but at the same time it 's perhaps far more terrible than it 's ever been” Angela Davis. Despite regulations and laws being passed, the absurdity of injustice being exposed, racism still continues to be ubiquitous, regardless of time and generation. The poems Still I Rise by Maya Angelou and Telephone Conversation by Wole Soyinka both convey the theme of prejudice and racism; with a clear and thorough message showing how unjust and unfair xenophobia is. While they both express the same problem, the poems have differences in structure, poetic techniques, audience, and lexis. Both poems were written in the 1960’s-1980’s, a period of great segregation, and Soyinka and Angelou were both primary victims of this racism.
With examples of the negative effects and failures of multiculturalism in countries such as Germany, nationalism is being implemented globally on a much larger scale. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in response to increasing crime rates and increased poverty as an effect of looser immigration laws, commented that multiculturalism in Germany had “utterly failed,” and that it was “a sham” (Noack). In addition, the former president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, once stated “we’ve been too concerned about the identity of new arrivals and not enough about the identity of the country receiving them ” (“Subscribe to the FT to Read: Financial Times How Europe Lost Faith in Multiculturalism”). These notions of regret from leaders and former leaders of countries that implemented a multicultural idea have led to states on the global scale being reluctant to embrace multiculturalism, especially due to the influence of France and Germany on the global market. In America, nationalism is being justified by the current leadership by pointing to the failures of this multicultural European system.

To. Mrs. Hopkins, Recently, I have read your controversial and callous article ‘If Britain is prepared to provide an all-inclusive resort service for asylum seekers, the least they can do is wear a bloody wristband.’ From a student with a family member who has experienced being a refugee, I know that the issues regarding asylum seekers and refugees are critical in the modern society. Therefore, I feel that your article, mostly oversimplified and prejudiced, could mislead lots of readers to have undesirable views on those people who are in need. Although most of your arguments are either factually incorrect or oversimplified, some of your points are undeniably true. For instance: a normal worker from the UK who ‘might earn £30K a year’ has
