Discrimination How Does Discrimination Affect U.S Citizens? Back Then? Now? Overview Aspects Educational Environmental Economic Effect Human Resource/Interview Introduction Statement Problem Statement What is discrimination? Is there a solution? Throughout history, discrimination has changed many lives. It has left a permanent mark on people. Discrimination has scarred both the physical and mental aspects of human beings. We chose this topic because it has personally affected our ancestors. Our relatives were put at a disadvantage because of their race. One can also be discriminated because of their religion, ethnicity, age gender and/or sexual orientation. Discrimination has negatively affected our families which is why it is so important to us. It has the potential of destroying many more peoples' lives and crushing souls. This is why we must find a solution to this treacherous act. How can we eliminate the progressing of discrimination and mend the destruction it has caused to the citizens of the U.S. in such a way that it balances out the power of all people? Would violence or nonviolence be more effective? The effects of discrimination can be drastic. It can result in destruction of the body and mind, when people bully others because of a difference. In many cases, there can be a war because of people's different beliefs. For example, the Civil War. The Civil War of 1861 was a fight between the Northern States and Southern States, a war over the issue of slavery. This is one of the major effects that can result because of discrimination.
Q:How has discrimination impacted your family?
A: My parents were forced to marry in a different state because it was against the law in California for different races to marry.
Q: How has discrimination affected you personally?
A: Children would call me names, since he was from the Philippines they would call me a "Jap."
Q: How have you seen discrimination in your profession?
A: It has caused anger and major depression in some of my patients. It has a negative effect on different people.
Q: How have you seen discrimination change over time?
A: My profession has looked for diversity in training, hiring and understanding people with differences including cultural difference. The environment can effect how people are treated. For example, the Southern States of the United States was promoted and more frequent. They believed in slavery, which is a terrible form of discrimination. On the other hand, the Northern environment of the United States is where people fought against slavery. Also, different regions in cities affect the homeless. Because of where they're located and their race, the homeless are a distraction to the modern pedestrians. In addition with the environment affecting discrimination, discrimination takes its toll on the environment. A way of justice known as environment justice, is the protection of the environment from anyone who is to harm it. As early as 1982, a group ordinary citizens rallied to object an oil spill into a landfill approved by the government. In that area was a community of homeless citizens that the government knew that they would be putting at risk.This lead to the arrest of over 500 people. From there, this act evolved into environmental discrimination. Presidents from the past into the present have altered many laws in order to restore balance in both parties of the lower class and the government. However, this is an issue that is taking place right here and right now, and unfairly affecting the ones that cannot speak up for themselves. Stakeholders -The Victim

Discrimination causes tension between the perpetrator and the victim. An example of this was African Americans and whites. By: Jeffrey Wang & Dylan Ines
Period 2 Critical Inquiry Key Terms Discrimination- Making a distinction between two groups and side with one and be against the other; usually because of race, religion, beliefs or appearance.
Prejudice- Forming an opinion about something before having knowledge of it
Segregation- Separating two racial groups and putting one at a disadvantage
Perpetrator- Someone who commits a crime or a wrong doing
Injustice- unfair action or treatment; violation of others' rights
Stereotyping- Having too simple a view of a person or group that over generalizes
Civil Rights- Personal property rights guaranteed by the Constitution and by law
Tolerance- A positive and fair attitude towards somebody's opinions that differ from one's own. Also to respect human dignity
Minority- People who there are less of in this country, and are protected by law including:African American, Hispanic, Asian and American Indian
Diversity- Human differences, primary dimensions of diversity are age, physical abilities, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation Solution Educating today's youth society about discrimination will raise awareness throughout the community. People will begin to comprehend the terrible effects on people who have a different national origin or ethnic group. As they understand what it does physically and mentally to the human body, the youth will act upon others how they want to be treated (the golden rule). When we educate the youth about the effects of discrimination, they will understand how hurtful it is, physically and mentally. The NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) took a Nationwide study, and found a surprising fact. If an Asian American is discriminated repeatedly, or even once, "discrimination was also associated with indicators of heart disease, pain, and respiratory illnesses." This was a result of discriminating. If we can educate our generation about these type of things, we will become more aware. This will make people more kind, and open-minded because they understand the terrible effects of discrimination, and rethink their decisions that they make Bibliography TYPE.

Concept Map Censorship on Media Raising Awareness Self Evaluation By censoring the output that the media presents, it will decrease and eliminate the discriminative television program that can influence the youth to a biased belief. Growing up, they will be accustomed to discrimination, and believe it is a rightful act. For example, some television programs have hateful beliefs that mocks a specific social group. During the time of segregation and the years after, there were dreadful acts of hatred toward the African-Americans. Because of the amount of hatred that was outputted by the media, the people acted as others did, and discrimination evolved. Soon, the government had to take control of the country again. The only solution that could have any affect was censorship on the media we can censor this type of media output, we will be taking a giant leap forwards towards the elimination. Taking in from all the research that was taken in and accounted for, we honestly do believe that this is an major factor to this problem. "Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes- BrainyQuote."

However, it is not like that. In the past African Americans were set at a disadvantage because of their race. This is called educational discrimination. Many other forms also exists. In the late 1800s and early 1900, Americans were resentful to hispanics that moved into the country and treated them with discrimination and lower quality of an education. Now to this day, many laws have been set into place to protect the people's rights. In article IV of the Civil Rights Movement, states that you cannot lower a students education based on their sex, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation. In other universities and schools, pregnant woman were excluded and put at a restrictive area where they are not allowed to receive the same education. To fix this problem, in 1972 a law was passed allowing access that everyone had. By setting up these laws and taking away a less restrictive force on the people, it not only helps themselves, but as a nation growing together. "Title 5, §4602: Unlawful educational discrimination." Maine State Legislature - Home. N.p., n.d. Web. 4 June 2013. <http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/statutes Lucas, Eileen. Civil rights, the long struggle. Springfield, NJ: Enslow Publishers, 1996. Print. Dylan interviewed his father, who knows what it is like to be discriminated. He is a psychologist and is from the Philippines, so he knows what discrimination is really like. Discrimination on some basis, is legal. However, they must meet the standards of the Bona Fide Occupational Qualification (BFOQ). The BFOQ is a defense to acknowledged discrimination, usually based on the existence of a facially discriminatory policy. Even though this act is more freely open than restrictive, it does cause much damage. There is discrimination in the gender and weight of a person, if it does have a negative effect on the job that is being applied for. Furthermore, not much analysis or information is needed for the employer to exclude that person from that field. Many states have additional protection to the people's rights in the case when the employer is part of a governmental body. In addition to the constitutional rights, the Age Discrimination Employment act is a violation of the Bill of Rights because the Fourteenth Amendment explicitly prohibits states that violating an individual's rights to due process and equal protection. Lawsuits and other charges have been made because of unfair discrimination in America. In the legal system today in our world, discrimination is a topic at the top of the charts, and is being dealt with by the increase in restrictions sending out. Many times, discrimination only affects a specific social group. During the mid 1900s, everyone were attacking specifically the African-Americans. It was a time of segregation and hatred. However, the Constitution does grant the right of freedom of speech, and verbal discrimination is a type of speech format, allowing it to be legal. The start of discrimination is with slavery. From there it spread like wildfire. In the early 1600s, the North American Colonies started importing slaves from the heart of Africa. Now in the present day, social discrimination not only takes place in adulthood, but also the adolescence. Discrimination takes a huge roll in bullying. As a child, you have the right to be able to roam free into the wilderness. However, discrimination is killing lives. This act takes thousands of children's lives every year. And it will keep stealing the innocent lives of these kids until something is act upon this to end such a treacherous act. When one feels more superior one powerful than another, it leads into the mental and physical ridicule. All social groups are involved, and scarred. The factors of economic discrimination depend on the employer and participant for the job. In some cases, it is fully legal to discriminate someone because of their age. This act is the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Stated in this act, you are allowed to discriminate one for their age, in the case that is has a relationship with the basis of the job. For example, a pilot cannot be over the age of sixty because their motor skills wear out by then. Other formats of economic discrimination include economic factors. Some of these factors may include the verbal discrimination of employees, the consumer, and minority-owned businesses. Like all other forms of discrimination, this type can discriminate the race, sex, one's religion, ethnicity, or nationality. Examples of these are employers who hires a white man over a different nationality person, souley based on their race. In the past twenty years economic discrimination has grown. Finally on 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order forbidding discrimination in employment. That was not the end of that, but created more discrimination acts. Different parties of the government have separate opinions on what should be done about the rising in discrimination used by the media. Solutions have been passed and set, some have succeeded and some have failed. Through many presidential campaigns, many have stated that they will fix the discrimination in America, and start as a new nation. However, that is not true. Discrimination is as strong as raw liquor. It affects how the government and representatives are going to act upon such a broad topic. Furthermore, there will have to have solutions created in order to end a destructive era. Since discrimination has evolved from slavery to civil right movements to racism and restrictive power, the government has to change approaches to the never ending problems it is causing. Ignorance of the problem has been a take by the government. It resulted in chaos and negative effects on the country and people. Even though the never changing discrimination is destroying many live, the government are adding more laws and rights to aid the victims.

Dylan Upon finishing our project on discrimination I believe that personally, I did an excellent job. I think this because I worked well with my partner. Also, we each did an equal amount of work, making the overall project better. Lastly, I took responsibility for what I agreed to do. If I told my partner that I would finish something that night,I did all that I could to finish my assignment. Even though we had many positives, I now realize what I can work on. One thing that I can work on is planning my time. I would have liked to have the project done earlier so I would have it done a few days before the project was due. I did a good job on my project but there are some things that can work on. Overall, this project was very successful. Employment discrimination | LII / Legal Information Institute." LII | LII / Legal Information Institute. N.p., n.d. Web. 6 June 2013. <http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/employment Who? What? Where? When? Why? The 5 "Ws" Who? Several people are affected when discrimination takes place. It will affect the victim, who usually is different from others. Also, the person hurting the victim, or the perpetrator is a part in discrimination. He or she exhibits the discriminative acts if the perpetrator is caught, he or she will be punished. What? Discrimination is a terrible act that happens when a person or group does not look or act the same way as the majority of a group. It happens all over the world and it has been happening for many years. In the 1860s there was slavery in the United States. This is a type of discrimination that was prominent in the Southern States at the time. This type of discrimination was physical abuse, but over time it has extended into mental abuse. For example, cyber bullying can effect one mentally. Where Discrimination can happen anywhere and in any form. It happens all over the world and for many reasons. For example, it happens to many ethnic groups throughout the world. It has happened in the United States, for example, when segregation was happening. This was an issue that affected the African American minority of the United States. In Montgomery, Alabama, Martin Luther King Jr. was protesting against segregation because he believed in equal rights for all people, no matter where they came from or looked like. This important event happened in the United States, and many other cases like this happen around the world, not just in the United States of America. Jeffrey When? Discrimination has been happening since the beginning of human existence. It has changed overtime, and in some parts of history the discrimination was more subtle, and sometimes it was direct abuse, but it has been there and effected many people on a profound level . An example of when discrimination took place was when recently in Bangladesh, rich factory owners did not provide their workers with a safe working environment. The factory owners discriminated against the workers due to their low socioeconomic class, forcing them to work in buildings which eventually collapsed and killed over one thousand of the workers. This is a type of discrimination that happened a few weeks ago, and has been a consistent problem for many years. Hard working and dedication are two of the characteristics that I have performed throughout the work on this project. At times, Dylan and I would butt heads. However, we worked through it and finished strong. At first, we started with much research done. Towards the end, we procrastinated a little. Because of that, we had to work harder, but we got the work done. By combing the skills that were good at and utilizing them for the project, it made it more unique and better. We did have weaknesses, but we worked on them and help strengthen them. Throughout the project, we committed equal amounts of work and put just as much effort in as the other. Coming out of this final project, I have fixed and helped my weaknesses to be better, and summing everything up, Dylan was cooperative and promised what he would do. And we were a good team together. Final Solution Two is always better than one. And that is why by combing these two methods and blending them together, there will be a greater result. A better one in fact. Discrimination has affected U.S citizens in the past and present in different contrasts. But one thing hasn't changed. There is something in discrimination that will remain the same in the human society that forever, will not change. And that is the damage it will continue to cause. It is correct that discrimination has no end to it. However, if we mend the destruction it has caused and prevent the future damage, we can live happier with more joy. When two good are combined, it creates more good. Discrimination is a disease. Spreading into minds of young and old. The solution is the only treatment for such a disease. And by combining the medication we can use for this disease, one day, we will find a cure for discrimination, because two is always better than one. Why? Discrimination happens for variety of reasons. One reason is a group or person makes an assumption about somebody because of religion, ethnicity, age, gender and sometimes even social class. One group sees these differences and puts the other group down, or at a disadvantage. A good example was when African Americans were segregated from whites. They didn't get the same education, working conditions, living environment or opportunities as the whites, just because of their race. As stated, there are several reasons why people are discriminated, even though the Constitution states that all people are created equal.
