Discrimination and are problematic parts of our culture tangled within the American history. For the majority of U.S. citizens these parts of our culture die out after the civil rights movement, but for the ethnic minorities this is far from the truth. These ugly aspects of our culture that once thrived in the shadows praying poor and minorities, has recently had light shed on it with event of the few years. The racial tension being made worst with statements being made by republican presidential front Donald Trump, saying we should ban Muslims from the country. These open discriminatory statements can have devastating effect the Muslim communities and our country as a whole.
A date that has gone down infamously in America’s history is the tragic event that occurred on September 11, 2001. This date was a turning point in the world, and many changes could be seen, such as the addition of the TSA in airports and increased security. However, one of the lesser known effects was the sense of fear that was unconsciously instilled within our communities. Today, this fear is represented through our heightened awareness towards terrorism, and the increased distance we tend to place between ourselves and our fellow community members. While 9/11 was a day most noted for its horrific display of terror and the loss of many lives, it was also the day that we, as a nation, lost our sense of security and replaced it with a sense
Because of this, Americans began to live in a state of paranoia. They worried that their homeland might become victim to another terrorist attack. Americans questioned everyone and everything, specifically Muslims. Many people assumed that just because the terrorists in the 9/11 attacks were Muslim, that every Muslim must be a terrorist. Muslims, or anyone slightly perceived to be Muslim, were hated and feared.
People were furious because AIDS was spreading across the nation like a wildfire and people needed to be treated for the condition. This a horrible decade for the country because people were losing loved ones to a condition they hardly knew anything about at the
They are blamed for a lot of horrible events because of their race and culture which in turn, really hurts them. Our world shouldn’t be full of racism anymore, but somehow, there still is a bunch of it
After the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and the more recent attack in Paris, Arab Muslims have faced racial prejudice and religious persecution. There are many non-Muslims who falsely accuse all Muslims of being terrorists and some take action against them. Last year, three Muslim UNC Chapel Hill students were killed in an apartment and a threat was sent to Virginia Tech, stating “I will be here 11/11/2015 to kill all Muslims.” Because of this antagonism against them, Muslims in America are becoming increasingly afraid for their wellbeing. Dean Obeidallah wrote the article, “Are All Terrorists Muslims?
Did you know that the Holocaust affected many people 's lives, mostly in a bad way? The Holocaust was a tragic event that happened in the 1940’s in Germany. Adolf Hitler the Chancellor of Germany during that time and his Nazi’s party killed about six million Jews because they blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss of World War I and all of the other faults of Germany. The article, “Broken Glass, Broken Lives” and the video “I Survived The Holocaust” showed that the Holocaust was a tragic event that ruined many people 's lives.
At the same time we have been seeing this right being blatantly misused by the participants in social media. Zakir Naik a spiritual talker recently said that "All Muslims should be a terrorist" this statement has led to the motivation for the terrorists in the Dhaka terror attack. If he keeps on preaching statements like this then the terror attacks may increase and due to these kind of statements given by him, he has been banned from entering the United Kingdom. If the terror attacks increase then a lot of place will get damaged and many innocent lives will be killed.
Some have medical issues, mental issues, and emotional issues. The citizens of New York were affected severely by the event that happened on September 11, 2001. Out of the 2,606 people that died in the World Trade Center, 1,762 were residents of New York (Statistic Brain Research Institue). People not only died from the explosion of the airplane crashing into the twin towers, but had to make the decision to jump because there was no way out.
The Oakland Press, 24 Sept. 2012. Web. 30 Mar. 2016. The holocaust was a terrible time for Jews and the world because it was the start of another world war. These old boxcars were just the beginning of hard times for the Jews. The holocaust needs to be remembered for the sake of the dead, but also for the sake of the living, so it never happens again.
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.”
Some people even moved to another state to try and find another job to provide for their families. The Red Scare was the worst time of the nineteenth century it was all about racism and the political views on the economy. The 9-11 terrorist
