Is discrimination natural during times of strife and hardship? Throughout history, the human race has fought each other and has endured plague and countless horrors. During these times of suffering, humanity was at its lowest. Committing crimes and taking advantage of the hardship for their own gain. Many dictators and politicians have used times of suffering to further their own agendas, which begs the question, “Is discrimination only natural during difficult times?
The connection of ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) to the fasted growing faith in the World, Islam, is causing an unimaginable amount of fear and violence towards innocent Muslims in the United States and throughout the Globe. The American government’s responsibility to the safety and well being of its people is more important than ever.
LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender. People in this large, growing community are being discriminated against every day, in a large, varying number of ways. These include the general areas of adoption, school, workplaces, service, marriage, etc. To create awareness and fight against this discrimination, people have tried protests, awareness campaigns, blogs, posters, meetings, videos, workplace policies, etc. But now I’d like to get more specific about three areas that the LGBT community is getting discriminated.
Though the US Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal throughout the nation, there are still limitations on adoption due to discrimination.
“Even if we have a Supreme Court ruling that says all fifty states have to recognize marriage for same sex couples,” says Emily Hechet-McGowan, director of public policy at Family Equality Council “we’re still likely going to have implementation issues that will take time, maybe even years, to solve”.
Maybe just a coincidence
Someone has to have witnessed this
I’m really getting sick of this
One more life taken and it's not taken serious
Another white man “accidentally” takes the life of a colored and it’s not seen as ridiculous?
Where the hell is this so called “justice”?
We have to put an end to this
Because when will these guilty murderers pay their consequence?
These people are absolutely careless
Not thinking they are taking away someone’s father, mother, or someone’s son
When will they be done?
Discrimination has been ingrained in society since before the time of the world’s first civilizations. Socioeconomic situations, skin color, and one’s lineage were distinguishing roles which decided whether you were on the top of the food chain, or on the bottom. No matter the country, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or political party a person affiliates themselves with, everyone has been discriminated against in some way.
This idea of comparing two different types of children in society’s view with a colored child and a white child, comes in a big threat from the impact of one’s community. The community mainly portrays that the child is internally being taught this way of thinking about one race being more superior through the activities one family does in a household.
In the video Doll Test, shows how children identify each doll. Each doll/picture is the same looking but has a different skin tone. The children are asked to identify which ones are to what they think is correct to the questions being asked to them. The questions that are being asked are “Which doll is the good doll?” “Which doll is the bad doll?” “Which doll looks like you?” “Which doll would you play with?” “Which doll is the mean one?” and so on. They would either point at the “black doll” or the “white doll”.
Title IX was introduced for the first time in 1972, just over 4 decades ago, but despite all that Title IX stands for we are still struggling with gender discrimination in our country today. The inequality between men and women is still so obvious to spot. All someone needs to do to witness this is attend a women’s sports event, which is exactly what CNN author Kelly Wallace did. In Wallace’s
After watching the mini documentary "Every Mother's Son" i noticed a few key connections to the text "Native Son" that we are reading in my English 4 Class. In both the film and the book people of color are discriminated against by white people. The Character from the book,Bigger, is an African American in a racist 1940's Chicago. In the documentary the police are racially profiling people of color to crack down on crime. This lead to four NYPD officers shooting an unarmed African Man 41 times in front of his apartment building.
In my last discussion about hate, I talked about the generalization of hate and discrimination. I want to focus more on discrimination of skin color. Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans, and others are still today being discriminated based on their skin color. Based on an article I read that was published in the last five hours, states that "our society views race as a set of permanent, heritable characteristics that include temperament, behavior and ability.
Hello my name is Jesús Ortiz and this is my first post on this site,so I might not be a good writer I apologize for that but enough about me, my senior project is about how doctor discriminate against patients with disabilities. I have read a lot of articles about the subject and ask people about but they don’t know what i'm talking about so that's why i chose this subject.
Why is there so much hatred in our world?
I find this question interesting because it has been a big part of our world for hundreds of years. People are judgmental. They judge others because they either have low self confidence or the other person has something they want. People are selfish. They can't see the light when they're blinded by jealously, envy, or low self esteem. I wish I knew what motivated those who felt the need to hurt others to make them feel big.
a.) The question that is of most interest to me is question number two. This interests me because nowadays many people compare racism against african americans with a new concept that says they get away with discriminating against whites because they are the minority, or in short that a minority group is now discriminating against a dominant racial group, and I believe this is highly invalid.
She’s a lesbian, they’re straight, you’re bisexual, and he’s gay…
Why must you be mad seeing them together.
Watching them being happy, live life, pray for forgiveness, and play.
Happiness is happiness, it doesn’t come in any shape, form, color or religion.
Why try to draw them apart,
When they already stole each other’s heart.
They already had a hard time accepting it, and going to school.
They can’t have a regular nice date or go to the pool, without discrimination.
They have to go through all this frustration, because of a revelation.
There is still unethical treatment and abuse of women around the world, especially in places such as Afghanistan, Nepal, The Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sudan. Women continue to be abused and raped as a weapon of war. They are being deprived of their rights and are not able to voice their beliefs and opinions. The spread of HIV and diseases are also a huge issue around the world. The lack of access to contraceptives led to numerous unintended births, but because of disease, their life expectancy is very low.
My most updated thesis is "Racism On The USA" as might know here in united state is one places where racism hits the most,in all kind of ways. People discriminate others based on their color,race,raligion or gender this is something it most has to be stop so we can live in a peaceful place. It's unfair to be treated differently by something we cannot reject something that made us what we are. We all are created the same and with the same rights that no one can't take away from us no matter what.
For my Senior Project, the topic that I feel very interested in is video games and everything related to video games, like the development of video game industry through the history, and how it contributes to the whole economy of a country, specifically the United States. Also, I want to know how video games positively and negatively affect people's lives in different ways, mentally, economically, physically, so that I can find out how to prevent the negative effects, and take advantage on the positive effects.
If Christine Quinn becomes the next mayor of New York City, discrimination and gangs are an issue that Quinn and the council will need to deal with this is an important issue that Quinn has to solve because many people die because of discrimination and gangs.
We learn something interesting about one on the characters, Piri Thomas on page 103 where it says: " the difference between me and Louie was he was white. 'that cat Mr. christian tell you about calling you when some new territory opens up?' Louie said in a low voice. i nodded, 'yea'. damn! that motherfucker asked me to come and start training jazz on Monday." This is typical of how this character acts in this book, so far Pipi hates the white people, and he also feels confused of who he is.
We learn something interesting about one on the characters, Piri on page 184 where it says: " Look, fella, i got a feeling you brought me cold coffee both times on purpose. why? Ya really want to know, sir? Yes, I want to know-really, he added sarcastically." This is typical of how this character acts in this book, so far. He often seem to want to get everything to go his way. He likes to get revenge if someone disrespects him. Like for example, he even beat up his brother of disrespecting him. This might leave the reader feeling not as sorry for Piri because he looks for his own problems.
In "Down These Mean Streets", one of the characters that I feel very interested in is a white kid named Angelo,one of Piri's friends at school in Babylon, Long Island. Angelo only appears one time in Chapter 9, but the way he treats Piri really impresses me, more than any characters I've seen in the book. Through the book, we always see how badly the white people treat Piri, or "colored people" like him. These discrimination from white people creates a negative thought toward them in my mind.
First when I started reading this novel calls, "Down These Mean Streets" I thought there would be something about young black guy who always cause the problem in the community. I can not imagine something else but black guy with a tough body and he would not scared of anything, but always try to do something that challenging. This picture is still in my mind now even though I already knew that it about Puter Rican guy.
The way children grow up and their opinions about life are seriously affected by what they learn from people around and what happen to them during their lives. In the past, poverty and the discrimination against people of different races were very serious problems in society.
My first impression about this book was I thought there was going to be a lot of violence happening in this book because of the title. I also thought the main character was going to have a struggle in their life and no one can help them, but have to live their life by changing their life to the street lifestyle.
I have thought that this book was about being raised in the ghetto and dealing with being poor. I also thought it would have to be about gangs and drugs, and how those raised in the streets have no choice for their future but those paths.
