Transcript of Racial Discrimination

Racial Discrimination By: Haley Johnson & Emily Carlton Haley's Article Emily's Article Quote #2 Quote #3 Quote #1 The report's most striking finding, however, is the emergence of Latinos both as the fastest-growing minority and the most segregated one. There are now 7.5 million Latinos in the public schools, catching up with the 8 million blacks. In Florida alone, Latino enrollment in the past 30 years has grown by more than 600%. They are divided from whites and blacks not only by race but also by poverty and language. They also do worse at school, with the highest drop-out rates. Because they were unimportant then, Latinos were not included in most of the court-ordered desegregations of the 1960s. Their presence now is worrying proof that racial segregation in the schools will get worse before it gets better. "The piano keys are black and white, but they sound like a million colors in your mind"

-Maria Cristina Mena "Judgements prevents us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances."
-Dr. Wayne W. Dyer "We're all colored, or you wouldn't be able to see anybody." -Don Van Vliet Critical Questions How would things be different if your race didn't matter?
Why do people care so much about how they look?
Why do people think they have the power to judge people by their race?
What are the positive and negative impacts of being different?
Why should it matter how you look when everyone is the same inside? Picture #1 This picture shows how people of different diversities are working together to make positive connection. "The worst part is that they don't even know the difference between Filipino culture and the rest of Asia. They just throw stupid stereotypes at me and it sucks. It's not everyone in my class and it's not every day, just when some idiot near me feels like being mean," she says. Picture #2 This article is about a girl named Sarah. She wishes she was white instead of Fillipino. People at school tell her to come back from where she came from even though she was born in Australia as were the people at school. Sarah says they throw her stereotypes. Her mom says to be proud of her Filipino heritage but she can't pretend she isn't Asian. This article is about how we tried to end segregation in schools and public areas with blacks back in the 60's but we don't really think about other races and how they were affected too. It's Getting Worse Again: Black and White at School
From: The Economist This picture shows that some people exclude others just because they are a little different. Picture #3 This picture shows how judgmental people can be and how they feel they have to label others when they don't even know them. This can hurt a person very badly, getting tangled up in all the things people say about them. It can be a very harmful thing. Racism In Schools
By: Elisa This quote shows that people of different races need each other in order to do a certain thing. People of different cultures teach us new thing like Native Americans taught us how to farm. This quote is just what we are trying to say - that it does not matter what you look like but what is in the inside. We are different races for a reason - to learn to except others. "A Tale Of Two Hoodies TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME Literary Component By: Randa Abdel-Fattah Racism/Incident at Little Rock This painting by Domingo Ulloa describes how mean people can be to others with a different skin color. It is based on a true story in 1957 in Little Rock, Arkansas, where they outlawed racial segregation in public schools. Nine black students entered the building as white students surrounded them and started assaulting them by throwing rocks. This painting by Michael D'Antuono, was inspired by the Trayvon Martin case from February 2012. It symbolizes the distortion of racially profiling innocent children and how present day discrimination affects our daily lives. Literary Component This piece shows a KKK hooded police officer with a gun pointing at a small black child who is offering him some candy. This all takes place against the backdrop of a torn American flag revealing the confederate one behind it. This painting is not exhibited in a museum or a special park but is online and in remembrance of that horrible day. In the movie " A Time to Kill", two white men violently rape a young black girl and dump her in a river to die after a failed attempt at hanging her. The men are arrested and set for trial. Before the trial, the girls father kills both rapists because he knows they will be set free (because they are white). The father is accused of being violent and is sent to jail. He is set for trial with an all white jury. This is the scene where the rapists get arrested. The cop walks into the bar and asks about the kidnapping. The white men said they didn't know what he was talking about. The police pulls out the young girls shoe he found in the back of their truck. After some struggle and racial comments, the men are arrested.

This movie/scene relates to racism in many ways. The cop is black and since the white rapists are racists, they do not treat him respectfully or take him seriously. The story is about the fair treatment of blacks and whites over very serious crimes - rape, attempted murder and murder. Scene from:
A TIME TO KILL Liz, Amy, and Jamie are best friends, but Jamie is more of a third wheel. Neither of them know that she is Lebanese - Muslim. In fact, the whole school doesn't know anything about her religion. Jamie is hiding behind a normal Australian girl. One day after school, she gets an email from a kid named "John". He asks her about stuff like her family and what she doesn't like about herself. She tells him everything.

The next day, she makes a promise with Amy that she would go to a party with her. Jamie knows her dad won't let her go (because of their beliefs), so she will think of some lie to tell Amy. Amy is disappointed when she finds out Jamie can't go and decides not to go either. Jamie feels bad and questions her idea to lie about her background until the most popular guy in the school, Peter flirts with her. Peter makes fun of people of different races. He bullies a kid named Timothy, but it doesn't phase Timothy. Jamie likes how he doesn't care what people think of him.

Eventually Jamie's dad lets her get out of the house and get a job at McDonalds and she talks to Timothy while she is there. Jamie finds out about a school formal and asks her dad if she can go to the formal. She knows its a long shot but writes a long letter asking if she can go. He still says no. Jamie gets a call from her sister Sheeren saying that she got arrested and she needs a lawyer. Jamie decides to email John because he told her his mom was a lawyer. He tells her she will meet her at the police station and when he arrives, she sees that Timothy was "John"!

Jamie finds out her Arabic band will play at the formal. Her dad will let her go, but only to play in the band. Jamie invites Amy over to her house and tells her everything about her religion and beliefs. She explains to Amy that she was lying about things. She tells her that her band will play at the formal. Amy thinks she should go to play. Eventually, Amy and Jamie do go to the formal. When Peter sees Jamie play in the arabic band he is disgusted. Even though Peter is disgusted, Jamie does not care what he thinks anymore. Literary Component In the book, "Ten Things I Hate About Me" by Randa Abdel-Fattah, Jamilah, the main character has to hide under bleached hair, blue eyes and the name, Jamie from having people at school see who she really is, Lebanese-Muslim. If you are not a true Australian , the "popular" guys will call you horrible names. Jamie is so scared what people will think of her if they know who she really is.
This relates to the topic by explaining how something people say can effect the victim and others around greatly. Peter, the "popular" guy in Jamie's school, doesn't even think about what he is saying to people. He makes fun of how the other Muslims talk. This is why Jamie is so scared to show who she really is.
We should be careful what we say and how we act around others. Some people may have a side of them that they are afraid to show because they might get picked on.
