Whether it’s race, religion, gender, etc., many people encounter bigotry in different ways. Islam is one of the religions that is discriminated against the most because of the stereotypes people have brought upon it. Muslims have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at the airport from the assumption that all Muslims are terrorists. There have been many recent reports of people discriminating against Muslims (violently or not), proving that it’s still happening in society today. The film Remember the Titans deals with the idea of discrimination, specifically racism, in America very well.
The four excuses that attempt to justify terrorism are as follows: terrorism is a last resort that is only used when all else fails, terrorism is the only possibility for weak movements, whatever works for a good cause, such as terrorism, is morally acceptable, and that all politics involves terrorism. In the first excuse of terrorism being the last resort, Walzer explains that in order for this to be a legitimate excuse, one must have exhausted all political and military possibilities to resolve their issue.

Charles Lawrence in his racist speech tries to convince that racist speech needs to be regulated. He argues that hate speech is intolerable in the United States because it represents discrimination which Everyone defines hate speech differently.

Therefore, mankind’s passage through time seems to progress backwards from innovation and compassion when it comes to crimes of hatred, bias and prejudice. In fact, the sheer number of hate crimes that victims still continue to experience today demonstrates society’s obstinate intolerance against religion, race, origin or colour, and sexual orientation. The deliberate act of partaking in bias-motivated
Crimes committed against those who do no wrong, prejudices such as the terrors of burnings, lynchings, and decapitation are crimes of hate; the crimes that are motivated only by way of race, sexual orientation, disability, and many other stereotypes are those that are unforgivable. They serve no purpose but to humiliate, injure, and threaten. These crimes are the bane of society, but the role of authorities on matters of hate crimes has become blurred in a world of increasing violence of prejudice. Free speech and unprotected hate speech have come under review, and still violence increases. All of these statements beg the question: should the government more actively oppose hate speech?
Hate crimes against race not only affect one person. The Encyclopedia of Race and Racism “Hate Crime” states, “When a person of a selected race or ethnicity is attacked simply because of skin color, the entire ethnic community is put in fear” (Hate Crimes). When a hate crime is committed against a certain race or ethnicity it strikes fear on the rest of the race or ethnicity. In an article titled Racism it states “Racism is a prejudice or an animosity against a person or group of people who belong to a different race”. Some may believe it is only one race that is being prejudice, but racism can be found in almost all cultures.
Without friends, the creature’s hatred has developed against all mankind (101). The morale that can be taken from the creature’s need for friendship is that people cannot judge a book by its cover and listen to what people have to say. People judged and rejected the creature without listening to him. If they listened to the monster, then they could learn the true nature of the being, which would lead to friendship. If the creature had friendship, then he would have possibly been good and not turn into an evil monster that people thought he
The promote racism and think it is ok to hurt people because of their race. They also believe that their race is better than another. I just want those people to know that is not ok to say hurtful things to other people. Nobody deserves to die because they are not a certain skin color, or aren’t a part of a certain religion. We all are people and deserve to live peacefully in America without thinking that someone is going to kill them.
It violates both 1st and 14th amendment. The 1st amendment forbids the government from taking “favor” respecting one religion over another, and the 14th amendment directs citizenship rights and equal protection of the law. However, Ted Cruz believes that Muslims should not be given rights of freedom, and free speech, but should be scrutinized when they are the potentially dangerous.

Sheianne Danglade ENG 151 Professor Elizabeth Murphy Hate Crimes are a very cantankerous subject but as far back as many can deliberate they have been happening. Whether it be a bombing, a beating or maybe even just a verbal assault on someone because they are Jewish or racial assaults because they are African-American or of colored decent.

Different from the concept of playing game and brutally killing people, Vonnegut explored a different way to show it totalitarian power by making everyone handicapped. People who are too smart, too pretty, or too talented are required to wear a weightier handicapped or a hideous mask to cover up their face. Due to insecurity from the actual handicapped people for not being normal, Vonnegut create a society where they can fit in and where those who are not handicapped can learn to embrace others who aren’t. Those are the positive qualities of the society but the negativity lie beneath the government. The government secretly control these people by installing devices and gears onto people to slow them down and to romantically match them with people who are not naturally gifted.
