- Racism and prejudice has gradually become one of the major impacts and burdens all over the world. They have existed for thousands of years and have been transmitted from generation to generation. However, racism has not always been the same, it has changed through history and every day it has become more sophisticated.
- People of the world are part of different races, which share different biologically transmitted traits that members of society deem socially significant. Nineteenth-century biologist labeled people with relatively light skin and fine hair as Caucasians; they called those with darker skin and coarser, curlier hair Negroid; and people with yellow or brown skin and distinctive folds on the eyelids were termed Mongoloid.
- The result of prejudice stems from many complex mixtures of environmental factors, upbringing, media, economic status, and finally experiences. With this being stated, what is the main factor for prejudice, and what can we as a society do to overcome prejudice views? When prejudice is mentioned, one tends to think of white and black conflict, but prejudice views can also be held about women, age, religion, and other ethnic people.
- Prejudice is the negative attitude based on false generalizations about members of different racial and ethnic groups. From prejudice, discrimination is born. We all are guilty of discriminating other people, but one can only speculate the factors that bring about this hatred towards one another.
- Prejudice is ignorance. People who have prejudices are raised to believe that they are normal and acceptable, and that most people different from them are not. Prejudice does not only apply to race or ethnicity. It can apply to background, sex, sexual preference, or nationality.
- When a person hears the word prejudice, he or she might think it only refers to the racial prejudice often found between those with light skin and those with dark skin. Prejudice, however, runs much deeper than a person’s color. Prejudice is found between gender, religion, cultural, geographical background, and race.
- Some Whites figure they are superior to all other races, especially blacks since they once were property to the white man. Most American people realize that slavery was a very terrible thing that happened in America’s past. Yet there are still some racist people who believe that the blacks should still be property or are less of a human.
- In the past several years there has been a growing trend towards multiculturalism in many areas of our society, most significantly on college and university campuses. This is likely due to a belief that the traditional Christian American values and perspective are unable to deal with the growing numbers of various ethnic minorities in our society.
- Canada is a country of diversity. In addition to Aboriginal people and the founding British and French groups, there are a wide variety of ethnic groups represented in the Canadian population, including large numbers of German, Italian, Dutch, Ukrainian, Chinese, Black, and Indo-Pakistani people, among others.
- Though taken for granted by many, co-sex educational institutions for higher learning are really just recent occurrences. For the most part, colleges and universities, particularly elite ones, taught either men or women. The reasons for this separation date back to early American history, when a woman s place was seen as in the home.
- Historians have traced homosexual imagery to the very start of American cinema, with the Thomas Edison film The Gay Brothers (1895), directed by William Dickson, in which two men dance together. Female impersonators and women playing male roles, both fixtures in late-19th-century vaudeville and theater, began appearing in split- and one-reel films of the 1900s.
- The United States is one of, if not the most, diverse society in the world. As time goes on, our children will be involved in an even more diverse world. That is why it is so crucial for us as role models to educate our youngsters about how to live, learn and play with others whose race, religion or ethnicity is different from their own.
- Prejudice and discrimination can be shown in many different forms such as colour, race, gender or discrimination. I will be looking at what Roman Catholics´ attitudes are towards prejudice and discrimination and how I think they might support victims of this type of crime.
- Hitler and his men killed over five million people because they were Jewish or were not their definition of normal. The Ku Klux Klan exists today and openly professes its hatred towards Jews and colored people.
- Fairy tales have always been told to us as children; whether to comfort or entertain us, they always seem to be a part of most everyone?s childhood. When Nadine Gordimer was asked to write a children?s story, she replied with a short story titled ?Once Upon A Time?.
- The term “race” has not had a consistent meaning throughout its history of use. Instead, “race” has meant different things to different people, often at the same time. Depending on the background of the person you asked the definitions would be as diverse as today s population in the United States.
- In a country dedicated to promoting the concept of free and eternal equally among the cultures from within and around the world. A country that sets forth policies and supports organizations dedicated to protecting people of every race and securing a future where race is no longer an issue, concern or judgement.
- Prejudice has been around as long as anyone can remember, and in one form or another, it has hurt many people in the past as well as in the present. However, if we keep seeing reoccurring statistics of it, why then can we not find a way to stop it? We need to stop it ? because prejudice hurts us all.
- For Democracy to truly thrive there must be equal opportunity and an equal distribution of hope for all people. A myth that underpins American culture is that we live in a land where success is based on merit, and differences in wealth is due to the differences in ambition and ability.
- The Constitution has survived two World Wars, a Civil War, and even slavery. This piece of paper was written to limit government in our lives and proclaim our rights as individuals. Through the course of time, Amendments have been added to aid in current events that were not foreseen when the Constitution was originally written.
