Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1). The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
The Muslims are coming to America to radicalize people and attack Americans. Islam is a religion of hate and oppression. The Muslims have conquered and assimilated countries in the past just like how they are doing it now. Islamic people are immigrating to America to radicalize Americans and create terrorist cells. There are many Muslims that come to America for a better life, yet even if a small percentage of those coming to America are radical, the consequences are far-reaching.
Well, due to the unbelievable indoctrination of our people through social media and politics, anyone who looks like they are from the Middle East and has a beard, is a terrorist. Therefore, Islamophobia has reached a point where people start discriminating non-Muslims because they look like they are Muslim! Recently, Islamophobia researchers interviewed non-Muslim, South Asian men with beards about their experiences of Islamophobia. According to one of them,
I believe that the act and practice of segregation is unconstitutional and also I believe that segregation takes a huge toll on your morals.Segregation was a practice in america several years after the civil war, even though thousands of white and black citizens disagreed with the practice it still continued with all of its horror. It got so bad people had to stand up for themselves. Teenagers, students, woman, men
So after McCarthy made these statements, it almost made like a ripple effect by having everyday people, being accused of people that “suspected” that they were communists as well. And as a result of everyday people being accused, they would be put on a blacklist. In today’s world, the person that has caused others to be accused is Osama Bin Laden. The people that play the role of the accuser, is the American government. And the people who are accused are Muslim Refugees from the middle east.
After 9/11, many people though the whole Muslim community was responsible because they did not know the difference between the terrorist groups and the peaceful groups. The Muslim religion revolves around peace, but the extremists believe that Allah is telling them to terrorize people and things. People would be rude to RJ, saying that just because he was Muslim he would basically go no where. “I grew up hearing that Muslims are terrorists. I didn’t see Muslims like me on TV or in the movies: the Muslims on the screen were evil” (Khalaf 10).
U.S. society cannot redeem itself from its racist past and go on to call itself a post racial society since black men and women including Barack Obama still face extensive racial discrimination in all areas of daily life. Obama has been the subject of multiple racist attacks, from religiously bigoted e-mails claiming him to be a Muslim terrorist, who was not really born in America and who was viciously anti white, to T-shirts with racist caricatures. These different images aimed to dehumanize him, to attack his manhood, to turn American people against him and to diminish his credibility as a leader (wise 73). At the outset of Obama’s presidential campaign, many supporters including his wife and the black community expressed fears that
The discrimination and marginalization of Muslims has been prevalent throughout the west even before the event of September 11, 2001 where Islam and the Arab world have been continuously misrepresented by the media mostly linking them to terror and violence on screen. One example linking Islam to terror and violence would be the Oklahoma City Bombing that took place on an American government building, April 19 1995, which killed, many innocent people including children. This is then, followed by how stereotypical and how fast assumptions are made towards the Muslim community as discussed by Patel (1999) stating that a British newspaper front cover of, Today, emerged the following day with a picture of a fireman carrying a dead baby with the headline, “In the name of Islam.” Later it was then established that Christian militants had in fact carried out the bombing. From this issue, it clearly shows a trend on how Islam is misrepresented and assumed as being evil, just by a short headline and a picture of a fireman carrying a dead baby. It is a form of language, a sign or message in which they are trying to imply to the masses that Islam is killing innocent people in the name of God
The stereotype goes as far as not helping people, “Recognizing the threat that Islamophobia poses, psychologists are working to make sure Muslim Americans get the help they need. Unfortunately, Muslim Americans face several barriers to treatment, including stigma about mental health and mental health services in Muslim communities.”(Clay). The people of Muslim culture are being put through things that just flat out suck and what’s worse is that they can’t even get proper help because of the same reason they have problems with in the first
