Images of Muslims are constantly recycling in American culture, whether accurate or neutral, images of Muslims presented in mainstream media and cultural forms are usually tied to terrorism. Although they existed before, stereotypes have emerged since 9/11. The reaction to them has increased, they are seen in movies, news media, political debates, and it distorts the way every Muslim is now seen. Peter Morey and Amina Yaqin in Framing Muslims: Stereotyping and representation after 9/11, suggest that Muslims tend to always appear as a problematic presence whenever they are represented. Stereotyping fixes certain characteristics, Muslims are now stigmatized as a threatening to society.
They still are today. Due to the more recent attacks in Paris, people of the Muslim religion or of an Arab race are being treated differently. On another note of stereotyping, some black people are being stereotyped and given labels such as ghetto and trashy. While there may be some black people who are “ghetto and trashy,” there are just as many white people like that, and Asian people, and middle eastern people. There was a video of a woman named Ernestine Johnson, called “The Average Black Girl,” and this video encompasses all that racism and stereotypes are in today's society.
After 9/11 happened things changed drastically for specifically Muslim people. Anyone who looked similar to a “terrorist” was categorized as a terrorist, which is something that should not be assumed and should not be taken lightly by anyone. Many Muslims were scared for their lives and did not want to partake in their traditional values, such as wearing a headscarf because they did not want to be confronted by anyone. People also chose to change their names because when people would hear the name “Mohammed” people were very quick to judge who you were and would treat you very different. A study shows that in 2001 after 9/11 a record high 481 hate crimes against Muslims happened, and they were ranging from Muslim’s being murdered,
Pakistani people think American’s do not have to work hard to get paid like they do. Therefore, Pakistani’s starts to believe that America is greatest land on earth. In Blink group of people were showed a black face and a white face for an experiments. What they found was that people who “who saw a black face first, they were also quicker to call a wrench a gun” (233). This happens because people get primed by media.
Such stereotypes create hardship for Muslims. Muslims are labelled as terrorists and people see them as a threat to society leading to discrimination, fear, and even violence. This can generate great stress for families, religious leaders and even children. My research provides opportunity to learn how Muslims are feeling
(who were the people accusing/accused and why did they say these certain people/ what were the benefits) Muslims must prove that they are not terrorists even though they are not but are perceived by the community, thanks to the media’s involvement in the Muslim terrorist witch hunt. The media targets the topic of Muslims and tries to exploit such a large topic for their personal
In the play along with the movie The Crucible, John Proctor and Abigail Williams have interesting relationship bound by adultery and lies. Abigail becomes obsessed with John and will do anything to be with him. John quickly shuts down her fantasy ideas and tells her that what happened between them was a one-time thing that will never take place again and a mistake on his part. With this knowledge, she soon spends all her time plotting to get John all to herself and to make him fall in love with her, even if that means taking out John’s wife, Elizabeth. We see many examples of this forbidden relationship through their secret encounters and arguments in both examples of the story, still, there were more scenes of John and Abby alone in the movie than in the play. One could wonder why this occurred and why the relationship between them was made more intimate and serious in the movie than the play. John and Abigail had more scenes alone together in the movie rather than the play because of the time period the screenplay was written and the movie was produced along with adding more drama.
The adults in Salem, Oregon in Stephen Karam’s Speech & Debate had good reason to treat the teens as if they were children. If Diwata, Solomon, and Howie were an accurate representation of the other students at the school, it is no wonder that the parents, teachers, and school board sought to exercise an abundance of control and provide too much guidance in their lives. The three teens dealt with “grown-up” issues throughout the play, but they tried to tackle them in characteristically childish ways.
The theme in this play that our adaptation would be focusing is on Hysteria and Demoralization. We will be adapting this to modern society’s issues of bullying specifically cyber bullying. The definition of cyber bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature. Today, Cyber bullying affects many teenagers because they are being harmed by others. In The Crucible, Abigail ends up ruining Proctor’s reputation as well as many other characters by accusing them of witchcraft. Abigail is seen as the villain in this story which aligns to cyber bullying because the person doing things to hurt the other person is the bully. Although the importance of reputation is not as important today as in The Crucible the similarities between Proctor and cyber bullying victims is that they could not take the bullying anymore.
