Yatia and Patricia I agree with the both of you. One barrier that exist is that communities, the government, media, and professionals are unaware an ill-informed; therefore, major public awareness campaigns must be sponsored. We can work to change systems and institutions, but we also have to work to change the ideology that perpetuate discrimination and exclusion.
Sabah Hasan 12.12.14 Shaun Adams English 1010 ESSAY #3 In the 1960’s discrimination was a major issue, and thought times have change now it is also a very prominent issue. This problem should have been abolished s along with slavery. It is a problem that is very difficult to solve because it is instilled in people from the time they are born. There are many sides to discrimination; there is racial, economical, and institutional discrimination, segregation, etc.
Looking at the Holocaust, there is a very small amount of disagreement about who developed the concentration camps or what created the deaths of about 6 million Jews. The Holocaust is definitely the best commonly known case of religious oppression. But during my fact-finding I figured out that the oppression of the Jews expanded much further than directly singling out the full population of a specific religion. Alternatively, Hitler categorized the Jewish as a people, and used his influential power to completely eradicate the entire race.
Remembering your heritage and respecting others’ is needed to prevent another Holocaust. “you must remember, for if you forget… life is gone indeed”,  says the man burning numbers onto the women. If one forgets their lives, then what they stood for, what they lived, their heritage, is gone. And without understanding heritage, racial biases and stereotypes are made. These biases and stereotypes lead to Discrimination.
While preparing for this essay, i had to research both modern day and historical examples of discrimination. And while thinking about discrimination and means to overcome it, it became evident to me, that while it is critical to ensure equality of all members of society, and make sure that there is no room for bias and discrimination, it is also important to keep in mind that the anti-discrimination measures we take, can accidentally lead to undesired effect of discriminating other groups. An example of one such debate is debate around Proposition 209 enacted in California on november 3rd 1997, which in short is "A state ban on all forms of affirmative action was passed in California: "The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting." It is my hope that one day we will live in a society that is free of descrimination, and in which the only criteria by which people are going to be judged is
It was unprecedented, but now the precedent is there.” And Holocaust survivor Leslie Kleinman said that he can see the ‘nasty things’ he witnessed when he was younger ‘coming up again.’ It may not be happening now, but the Holocaust can happen again. The state of the world is bringing racism and hatred back to the surface, more prevalent than usual. It’s spreading, and it can potentially lead to devastation.
Discrimination When people think of discrimination, the Holocaust comes to mind, but there are many more examples and ways of discriminating against others. This issue has been going on for centuries, and it is still a problem in today’s world. Discrimination is the isolating of others because of race, intelligence, and/or religion.
It is extremely important that people of all ages are informed of the millions of innocent people that died due to one man’s despise towards them. Therefore, people are able to see how severe discrimination, intolerance, and racism can affect people, families, and even entire nations. If history does repeat itself, it is best people do all they can to learn about the Holocaust in order to prevent another mass genocide based off of hatred in the
Discrimination is an injustice and can have devastating effects on individuals who are targeted. There are numerous regulations, laws and codes of practice to promote diversity and everyone’s right to fair and equal treatment, ensure equality and end discrimination. One example is The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). This act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone with a disability. Every organisation, by law, is required to have a policy in place relating to disability.
In order to ensure that an event similar to the Holocaust does not happen again as a nation we need to be aware. For starters we need to know our history; how and why the Holocaust took place. I think we also need to take a lot at other mass genocides/ethnic cleansings (Rwandan genocide, ethic cleansings in Bosnia, as well as the genocide committed against Native Americans on U.S. soil.) In generally we need to try to more excepting towards those who are different then us. The Holocaust happened because people were led to believe that Jewish people were horrid and to blame for Germany’s poor economic condition.
Throughout the history of the United States, prejudice has always been creeping around the dark corners at night, and even during the day time at the local grocery store. Prejudice is a negative attitude toward members of a group. This is heavily ingrained into our society. In fact, within the article from The New York Times, How Kids Learn Prejudice, by Katherine D. Kinzler, depicts how children soak up any information given to them, especially from parents. Prejudice leaves America wondering how can we improve our own humanity, involving how to decrease the level of prejudice that wanders around our cities and towns.
It is vital that our generation as well as the future generations are aware of the genocide that occurred during the holocaust and take lessons learned from this event in history, to make sure that history doesn 't repeat itself . It is vital that the remembrance, history, and lessons of the Holocaust be passed to new generations so that others can learn about our inner evil as humans. As a member of this generation, we must use the lessons learned from the Holocaust and apply them to our lives, in order to prevent violence and discrimination, which is still occurring today as a
Our life experiences make our present, our values, our way of behaving and thinking. Although no one is perfect, we are prone to develop prejudice against those who are totally different from us. For most of the time, prejudice only affects us personally. But if an individual is given a power to be responsible for another person’s live or death, prejudice can turn into a deadly weapon.
Anti–Semitism is hostility or prejudice against Jews as a religious or ethnic group (Allswang, 1985). This racism was the cause of the shocking discriminations against the Jewish people. This is a discrimination is form which can be traced by the early years of Christianity (F. Jackson and K. Lake, Beginning of Christianity, 5 vols. 1920-33). In the era of Adolf Hitler, hatred towards the Jews had led to genocide.
