Transcript of Class Discrimination

Class Discrimination By: Kamy, Emma & Preeti What is class discrimination ? Individual attitude and behavior of prejudice towards a social class such as the low class, middle class and high class. Low Class Middle Class High Class People affected Who: Class discrimination mainly affects the lower class people in homeless shelters. What: Homeless people are offten classified as people that abuse substances and have mental health issues. Many people believe that homeless people are in their situation because of laziness - that if they got a job they'd no longer be homeless. How: The discrimination may take the form of a violent attack, being treated unfavorably or even a dirty look from passerby. Organizations that help the lower class Gate 3:16

This organization reaches out to children affected by hungry/poverty and despair around the world. Care Canada
This organization is one of Canada's largest secular aid and development agencies, reaching millions of people in more than 87 countries around the world. Real Life Example One (Newser) A surge in vicious, unprovoked assaults on homeless people has put weight behind efforts to reclassify such attacks as hate crimes, the New York Times reports. Attacks have risen as more people have been pushed onto the streets by the recession, and researchers say the assailants are generally men or, more often, teenage boys who see the homeless as easy targets and beat, burn, and kill them for sport. "A lot of what we see are thrill offenders," says one criminologist.

Some 244 homeless people have been killed by non-homeless people over the last decade, according to a new report from the National Coalition for the Homeless. This fall, Maryland's hate-crime law will expand to cover attacks on the homeless, and at least five other states are considering similar moves. Opponents, however, argue that applying laws designed to tackle racial hatred to a transient condition like homelessness could end up weakening them. Real Life Example Two The sign is an example of class discrimination. The picture was taken in an American environment. The sign clearly discriminates against the poor people by not accepting them in their environment. http://www.soignorant.com/discrimination-against-poor-people/ Jessica Anderson. The Baltimore Sun.

Real Life Example Three Zengcheng riot: China forces quell migrant unrest

Chinese security forces have moved into the southern city of Zengcheng, restoring calm after days of rioting by migrant workers.
Witnesses say security personnel are manning roadblocks and patrolling the streets, and have ordered people to stay in their homes overnight.
No violent incidents were reported on Monday night.
Hundreds of workers rioted at the weekend after a pregnant woman was allegedly assaulted by security guards.
Reports said the woman was shoved to the ground when she refused to move her market stall.
The protesters set fire to cars and damaged government buildings in Zengcheng, near the wealthy southern city of Guangzhou.
Police reportedly fired tear gas and deployed armoured vehicles.
A migrant worker from Sichuan who works in the area told Reuters news agency that people were angry with the system.
"I feel the rule of law here doesn't seem to exist... the local officials can do what they want," he said.
Some residents told the Associated Press they had been told not to go out at night or post photos of the unrest online.
"Nobody wants to come out. They fear running into danger," one factory worker told AP.
Complaints about corruption and abuse of power are widespread, especially among migrant workers who are often paid meagre wages.
Zengcheng has a booming garments industry, and its 800,000-strong population has been boosted by thousands of migrant workers in recent years - many of whom come from Sichuan province. John Q. John Q is about a father trying to save his son. His son Micheal needs a heart transplant. In the U.S hospitals dont pay for your healthcare. John does not have the money and his health insurance does not pay for the surgery. The hospital will not do anything for Micheal untill the money is paid. John decides that the only way to save his kid is to have a hostage situitation. He holds the emergency ward hostage untill the hopsital agrees to do the surgery. In this clip it shows the hospital administrator sharing her views on the whole situitation. The Blind Side This scene I chose is about the rich ladys all getting togther for lunch, when one of them (Sandra Bullock) as Mrs.Tuohy brings up the topic of the "other" side of town where most of those rich ladies dont go. They make it seem like a dark valley but Mrs. Tuohy has a recognition for the people in that town and in the movie.This is showing that the ladies with her at lunch are saying how they wouldn't go down to that poor part of town because they dont belong their, and how its poor why would we go there. This shows class discrimination with the high class and the low class. The Outsiders The Outsiders is about a town that is split into two groups. The South was known as The Socs (wealthly zone) and the North was known as the Greasers (poor zone). There was a lot of tension between these two groups. They would often attack each other to see who was more tough. The scene I chose shows a Greaser being attacked by a group of Socs. Ponyboy was on his way home from the movies and the Socs would drive by him, says rude things, throw things at him and finally attack him with a kinife. The clip was an example of class discrimination because Ponyboy was being attacked because of his social class. True and False Class discrimination mainly affects the higher class. False, class discrimination mainly affects the lower class, often people in homeless shelters Class discrimination is being treated unfavorably because of their race. False, class discrimination is individual attitude and behavior of prejudice towards a social class Care Canada reaches millions of people in more than 87 countries around the world. True, this organization is one of Canada's largest secular aid and development agencies Gate 3:16 is an organization that provides breakfest and lunch only. False, Gate 3:16 is a drop in centre for the homeless and street people in Oshawa. They provide breakfest, lunch, haircuts, washing laundry and a place to take a shower. Rob Quinn. Newsers.
