They think they might as well support it because they are stereotyped anyway. It will take a long time for communities to start mixing in more… Tony Blair addressed Muslims in particular, telling them that they need to sort out the problem within. That was a huge stereotype of the Islamic community.” As Hammasa states, when Muslims feel alienated by western culture, they may turn to extremism. “I feel after everything that 's happened Muslims are being stereotyped negatively. The whole community has been labelled and, whether they are guilty of crime or not, they are getting penalised for it.” She finishes.
300359810 Mrs. Fahey ERWC 12-Period 2 14 September 2015 Racial Profiling Racial discrimination is becoming a major problem in today 's society. Our nation is facing problems based on the discrimination on race, ethnicity, religion or national origin. Racial profiling is a clear violation of the civil rights of the United States. The use of racial profiling has caused major issues and has had a huge impact among our nation. This has influenced a lot of hate and killing towards different type of race, religion, etc.
Many Celebrities have come under fire for their racist slurs in the media. Actors such as Michael Richards, Mel Gibson, and among few others are prime examples of individuals whose outburst lead to a racist commentary. The question that is on everybody's mind, when they heard about the outbursts from a celebrity, they wonder if they had a racist view of minorities or suffer from an uncontrollable anger problem. In some cases, these outbursts can be seen as a hidden anger problem while in other cases can be seen as how these individuals view blacks and other minorities in America. Michael Richard was once widely known for his portrayal on the 1989 television sitcom Seinfeld as a supporting character Cosmo Kramer.
Muslims that stayed in America is then started to be hated by the US people. After the tragedy, most of the American Muslim were caught without any crime charges. They were all caught without bailment, lawyers and not allowed to contact their own family. All of these doings is against the constitution and opposite with the countries’ law. There were many people jailed with one reason, they are Muslims.
Throughout the decades people have been mistreated because of their ethnicity or affiliations. Especially during times of war and during or after terrorist attacks, people tend to stereotype certain ethnicities and release hurtful and discriminating things. This has happened, at one point in time, to both German-Americans and Arab-Americans. During World War 1, the effect on the German-Americans was devastating. Many German-Americans attempted to shed their heritage and become fully “American.” By assimilating into American society, the German-Language was dropped from many educational and cultural institutions in the United States.
These big dangerous terms have always been interlinked with the Arabs. A false perception created and still being enforced by all forms of the media. Incident such as the 9/11 has worsen the attitudes people have towards the Arabs. An unfortunate occurrence due to a group of people have caused an entire race to be labeled as “terrorist”. It has gone to an extreme where Arabs or Muslims traveling to the West has become difficult.
America is said to have a melting pot of cultures brought together from different nationalities obtained from different individuals from across the world. However, as a result of increasing crimes, violence and terrorism, people believe that all blacks are thieves or all Muslims are terrorists. The US does have a problem with xenophobia because they fear that immigrants want to take away their jobs, they discriminate against Muslim and they seek to place more restrictions on immigrants entering the country. Firstly, people fear that immigrants from other countries want to take
History is full of horrible crimes stories and more will be added in the future. While some dare to believe in a world without crime, there always will be crimes of one kind or another and of variable atrocity. During the twenty-first century, more and more crimes have been committed in the world, many of them on behalf of religion. Although, several killings have occurred, notably with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, due to divergences in regards to religious beliefs, this paper will focus on crimes in relation to Islam. Mostly ever since the tragic event of September 11th, Islam, notably due to the organizations associated to it, has been quite fingered and marginalized.
For the 7,910,298 Muslims living in the United States, lack of understanding and poorly justified misconceptions has made life difficult (Kettani). People assume all Muslims have terrorist affiliations, alienating and outcasting them. Many followers of Islam cannot walk in the streets without being subjected to the burning glare of their fellow citizens. Mosques become targets of vandalism and violent anti-Islamic acts. “Muslims in America say they are more likely to be the victims of crime than the perpetrators” (Blank).
There are policies being developed by states and groups to help fight discrimination against muslims. The overall increase in Muslim hate crime is tremendous. Media and surveys show that muslims are feared and distrusted, and many communities have complained they do not want any Mosques in their neighborhood. People in office positions have claimed they believe mosques are controlled by Islamic Extremists. Although muslims receive an excessive amount of hate, immigrant citizens do as well.
Racial profiling, therefore, is the involvement of law enforcement officers in a discriminatory manner targeting any individual based on race, ethnicity, religion, national origin for suspicion of a crime. It is also noteworthy that omission by law enforcement is a form of racial profiling. The ingredients for racial profiling then are law enforcement, race, targeting, suspicion, omission, and crime. Many innocent Americans are behind bars or dead because of racial profiling and the realization of the September 11 attacks has heightened the reactions of law enforcement against people of color and various religions. Although it is a much talk
