Religious Dicrimination
The following points are about islamphobia in the USA
On September 11, 2001, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported a 1,700 percent increase of hate crimes against Muslim Americans between 2000 to 2001 (Anderson, 2002).
It has been established that discrimination towards Muslim Americans was present before the attacks on September 11, which may relate to Islam being frequently portrayed by the media as inherently intolerant and violent.
A decade after Sept. 11, 2001, the survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, shows that a majority of Muslims say the terrorist attacks made it more difficult to be a Muslim in the United States. Many said that they had been singled out by airport security officers and that people had acted suspicious of them or called them offensive names.

Next is a satirical commercial for the TV Show Mad Men which is set in the 60’s so the mistreatment of women in the workplace was even more extreme.
Women were not really taken seriously or seen significant in the workplace.
The men are in positions of power which gives them the freedom to objectify and disrespect the women.

What is Discrimination?

Discrimination is still a major issue in our society
It affects people in a negative way
Nobody has the right to diminish, or victimize someone cause of their differences
It is an issue that was fought in the past ,and is still is fought against.
Imagine if were
being discriminated against based on something you can't or don't want to change.
It is important to have the knowledge and understand the issues in the world
Relating Discrimination to The Short Story Unit
This topic relates to "THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE" because the professor's daughter discriminated against the student because he was of a lower class than she was
She rejects the rose that the student gave and accepted the gift from the Chamberlain's son, which was jewelry
The reason for her decision was that the chamberlain's son was of a higher class than the student
Racism is defined as: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior
This has been an issue throughout history
From slavery, to the holocaust and segregation
Segregation is a more current branch of this type of discrimination
An example of racial segregation was the
Jim Crow laws were racial segregation laws enacted between 1876 and 1965 in the United States at the state and local level.
Separating the usage of things like water fountains, bathrooms, schools buses, e.t.c almost everything had a white side and then a separate side for people of color.

This scene is from the movie the butler. It's about a man named Cecil Gaines who worked as a butler in the white house for over 30 years.
His son did not agree with his profession because he saw his father as subservient and weak and so when he goes off to college, he joins a group of freedom fighters and basically fight against the rules of the Jim Crow law.
In the scene moves a back and forth between Cecil Gaines’ life and his son life. But that’s just so show how they’re both fighting the same battle but in different ways.
Another example of racial segregation was
After the National Party gained power in South Africa in 1948, its all-white government immediately began enforcing existing policies of racial segregation under a system of legislation that it called apartheid. Under apartheid, nonwhite South Africans (a majority of the population) would be forced to live in separate areas from whites and use separate public facilities, and contact between the two groups would be limited. Despite strong and consistent opposition to apartheid within and outside of South Africa, its laws remained in effect for the better part of 50 years.
The black and coloured people of South Africa protested against this inequality led by the likes of Nelson Mandela and Ahmed Kathrada. Most of the initial protests were in the form of passive resistance. In one protest against apartheid Mandela publicly burnt his 'pass'. These passes had to be carried by all black men and they were not allowed to leave their own district without a pass. There was much unrest among the black community when the government tried to force the carrying of passes to include women.
Working with the ANC (African National Council) Nelson Mandela apartheid efforts increased and he himself began to realize that passive resistance was not winning the fight. Plans were made to bomb places of significance to apartheid, but these were always planned to avoid anyone being hurt or killed. Nelson Mandela was tried for treason and at one stage was acquitted. In 1964 though, he was sentenced to life imprisonment.
Under apartheid Mandela served nearly 27 years in prison but he never gave up the fight. When Mandela was imprisoned at Robben Island he continued his work and teachings. In South Africa and around the world, Nelson Mandela's anti-apartheid messages gained in popularity.
It was basically the same thing as the Jim Crow law but the only difference is that apartheid took place in South Africa and it ended in 1994.
Think about it, that was only 20 years ago
Sexism is defined as prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex
This type of discrimination mainly affects women
Throughout time the stereotypical role of a woman was housewife and taking care of the kids.
Later in the video the announcer says, “Because women are unable to engage with men on an intellectual level, it’s extremely important that they stay in shape to hold a man’s attention.”

That line basically tells you that in those days a woman’s value was determined by her looks and her looks only.
The men were only comfortable with the image of women being objects rather than complex, multifaceted human beings.

A lot of people think sexism is a thing of the past for women but just because it was more obvious and more extreme in the past doesn’t mean it does not exist in today’s society.
In actually women all over the world are still getting affected by it every day. This video demonstrates.








Religious discrimination
It is valuing or treating a person or group differently because of what they do or do not believe in.
This is issue still that is still prevalent in today's world
This has affected people when looking for jobs, socializing e.t.c
This type of discrimination is also present in Canada
Ausma Malik was running for school board trustee in Trinity-Spadina
She was the target of an extended and multi-faceted smear campaign claiming she is a “radical terrorist sympathizer.”
She was verbally assaulted at debates and forced to defend herself on subjects that have absolutely nothing to do with schools or education in
Fake attack websites have been created in her name
Other Muslim candidates were also attacked
Munira Abukar and Mohammad Uddin have also been victims of Islamphobic attacks.
A Purolator truck driver allegedly hurled garbage and shouted “terrorist” at a team of volunteers planting signs for Ward 2 council candidate Munira Abukar.
This was not the first time Abukar has faced an attack on the campaign trail.
There was a campaign sign featuring Abukar wearing a hijab that was vandalized with the words “Go Back Home.”
To become more aware of this issue
to gain an understanding of the effects of discrimination on groups of people
This article is about a law that has been passed in Arizona which supports discrimination
This law legally gives business owners the right to turn away potential customers away if they do not agree with their religious beliefs.
The law is basically giving ignorant people the liberty to treat others unfairly just because of their religions.
It is shocking to see that in today's society this issue is still present and supported
America is a very culturally and religiously diverse.
