The most important cause of the decline was disease because it caused the most deaths and also one people were noticing the diseases they would move around trying to avoid it, but only to make it worse by infecting more people. 8. The encomienda system allowed the government to give Indians to certain colonists and that effected Native American populations. This system is essentially slavery, which the Indians didn’t like. The opponents were the Indians.
Although, many people that were condemned weren’t actually apart of the Communist Party, (under McCarthyism around 1950-1954) they got blacklisted or lost their jobs. This social injustice is also portrayed in The Crucible as its characters face the Salem Witch Trials. Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible as his own reaction to the injustice of McCarthyism. Miller’s purpose was to show how people accused each other with false denunciations because of their fear, jealousy and solely hatred of one another under McCarthyism. Miller illustrates the process of the false accusations based on fear through one of the protagonists Abigail.
There are many conflicts in the world that stem from judging a person based on something that they have no control over. Racism, sexism, homophobia, and many other world issues are based on a belief of inequality. People are treated poorly because they are believed to be “less than” other people because of their race, gender, and sexual orientation. Although these are external qualities, people judge others as if people have control over something determined when they were born. The issue of inequality stemming from pre-determined characteristics is shown throughout history.
During The Crucible, the Witch Trials caused many court hearings. A good deal of the court hearings consisted of people over exaggerating outbursts of demons inside of them just to get somebody convicted. The Witch Trails also affected the church in many ways. Reverend Parris’ already had a wicked reputation as their minister, and the trials made it even worse. People wanted him out of the church.
Violence can completely change people’s lives During 1965 the caste people were viewed only as thieves and worthless people. Similarly immigrants were treated the same way and often were violated against their skin color and ethical background. It was very unusual for a caste person and immigrants to be accepted into the society. Craig Silvey shows this in the novel Jasper Jones a lot of families were broken down due to violence and their prejudice coming from their within the family or outside. In life discrimination and prejudice in the society can lead to violence, and violence can change a person and a family forever.
The final way that shows how labels can affect people is negativity. There is so much negativity in this book, like when the book mentioned how the Ewells were not liked. “ The Ewells have been the disgrace of maycomb for three generations.”(Lee 30) This is true and nobody in Maycomb likes the Ewells. The only reason that people were on their side for the trial was because Tom was black and the people were racist that stood against him, They didn 't stand by the Ewells because they liked them. This book shows how labels can affect almost everyone and shows how you can be judged on almost anything.
This is so because everyone has either been discriminatory or was discriminated against some point in their life. She persuades the reader to think that immigrants are not always that bad because of what they have to go through, like rape, beatings and even more. Almost everyone feels bad and want to help. However life is not always fair. Enrique comes across discrimination many times during the book, like the time he was beaten by six men on top of the train.
b. Problem Statement: (Racial discrimination has been one of the society 's most terrible problems.) c. Definition of the problem: (To judge a person just by the colour of their skin or by their social level or even by their different points of view not by the contents of their personality) d. Size: (Current estimates by the United Nations and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) shows the discrimination faced by millions of people who live and work in countries other than that of their birthplace are 175 million people who live temporarily or permanently outside their countries of origin. ) (http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Publications/DimensionsRacismen.pdf ) e. Causes: Racism is the result of many factors such as the fault upbringing of parents to their child 's believes or the obsession of authority of some people. f. Effects: Racism can have a really dangerous effects on victims, it can generally destroy them psychologically and sometimes physically.
Colorism is a way to discriminate against others who have a darker skin tone among people who are in the same race or ethical group. Colorism has been around for countless years and has affected numerous people by forcing them to change themselves just to be able to fit in with the rest of society’s standards. Colorism and racism are different from each other because racism involves two people that come from different background races but have identical skin colors. Meanwhile colorism involves two people of the same race but with different skin colors. Colorism has been making people feel ashamed about their skin color and people buying skin care products to make their skin look lighter and not that many people know how it affects a person
Let us start this essay with a provocative statement about the caste system in India. The caste system is a virus in the Indian culture and society which has been etched quite deeply in the Indian psyche since time immemorial. For centuries, people in India were classified into a number of castes based on an unnatural division, and because this system prevailed for so long, it became a part of the Indian culture. The above is how the caste system is perceived in the 21st century. This system of castes has existed in India since the Vedic times, but at that time, the system was known to be a peaceful one in the sense that, even though people were classified into different occupations based on their caste, there was no known discrimination as to one being better or more privileged than the other.
