The beauty of America is the unification of multiple skin colors, nationalities, religions, ethic, and morals. America has always been the escape for a better life of obtaining freedom.
With many nationalities, skin colors, religions comes racism. Racism is “(the prejudice that member of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races). ” (Worsened) Racism had been a major problem in the early creation of this county, with time this issue became attainable with different movements but never eliminated.
Although, America attempts to remain the image Of anti-racism after September 1 1, 2001 life for Muslims in America would change forever. The creditability Muslims had collapsed with the world trade center. With the amendment freedom of speech news stations, newspapers, and activist lowered their standards of decency to preach how all Muslims are terrorist Racism creates hostility, just because an action done by an individual of a particular religion does not make the entire group bad because their religion.There are many ways racism can be eliminated in the United States, starting with congress, having ore of control of publications, education the citizen of the religion.
For some Americans the news is the only thing they see to get information. Not everything on the news a valid. But many citizens do not take the matter in their hands in reading more about it they just make assumptions of what is occurring. For example many religion sanctions get build every. Veer around The United States every day.
Park 51 is the area a new mosque is supposed to be built near ground zero. Park 51 is one tenth of a mile away from ground zero according to fact check. If media restrictions was controlled more by overspent then park 51 would have not received so much negative press and made an false reputation of the Muslim culture. People’s opposing view of the build of mosque in park 51 was “Islam has proven to be oppressive and violent in other parts of the world, and U. S. Citizens should be wary of such tendencies among American Muslims.
In particular, the idea of erecting a mosque near Ground Zero is insensitive to the memory of the victims of the September 11 attacks, and the center should be moved. ” People opposed of the building of the new mosque because media labeled it as the ground zero mosque. As a matter of fact according to fact check there are two more mosque in the area. The only proof we have received is from the media. We should provide restrictions to the media in only publicizing valid facts.
This can potentially help eliminate racism when media is only able to give out facts.Education is very important in America, and strongly enforced. There are restrictions on teaching but typically only taught about the American culture. According to the Arab American Institute “Another of the poll’s findings establishes that a majority of Americans say that they feel that do not know enough about Arab history and people (57%) or about Islam and Muslims (52%). ” Indicating that most Americans are not exposed or know much about Arab history or Islam.
Arab American Institute came to the conclusion “The way forward is clear.Education about and greater exposure to Arab Americans and American Muslims are the keys both to greater understanding of these growing communities of American citizens and to insuring that their rights are secured. ” Which are absolutely right as humans there is the tendency of judging people based on stereotypes that is the thing we can only base our opinion upon. To potentially eliminate racism we must educate our citizens of other religions, and nationality to change the perception of a certain race, religion, or skin color. Many innocent Arab have been held captive just being of the assumption they are terrorist for being Arab.Many police officials are responsible but they possibly only imprison them due to being racist. Dan B.
Gorgon reports how innocent men Were held to being a treat to national security for being Arab and were released later with no explanation. ‘ ‘The cases were dismissed and Nacre Mustang was let out of the Federal Detention Center. He received no explanation and no apology, he just walked out. Both Nacre and Faith filed petitions under the Hyde Amendment, requesting that the government reimburse them for reasonable attorney’s fees because they had been wrongfully prosecuted.In order to collect money from the government under the Hyde Amendment, the prevailing defendant must show that the government’s actions were “frivolous, vexatious, or in bad faith. ” (Gorgon) In order to eliminate racism we must eliminate police officials from have this misconception of people by race.
How can police officials prevent racism and rime without implementing it? If our justice system contain to fail how we demolish racism. Racism may never be eliminated but we have come a long way in demolish segregation.Optionally one day perhaps we can see past religion, color, and race. Eliminating racism will be extremely hard but with help and desire from the government it can be accomplished. Racism does not only occur in against the Muslim religion but one of the least talked about sort of racism. Unfortunately on September 1 1 , 201 1 a group of radical Islamic groups ran into the world trade center and many lives were lost to the United States. It as one of the most tragic incidents in the United States. One-person actions do not make all Muslims terrorist.
With bad media, prejudice officials, and the failure to education our youth of other cultures has made racism still exist in this country. Perhaps providing restrictions, providing better education to our youth of other cultures, and unprejudiced government officials, racism can be eliminated.
