I have the same opinion that racism still is present in the United States due to the fact that many races discuss other races, and at the largest part of the time, it is not good. The use of credit history to panel potential employees, which is still a common practice, can have a top-heavy blow on minorities. Although a number of states are creating things to limit discrimination against the unemployed and those with poor credit, we have a extensive way to go prior to these actions being done away with. With the intense lack of correspondence in seizures and imprisonment rates among the ethnicities, some have recognized that using convictions and arrest to prohibit people from service may have a contrasting bang on minorities. On the other hand, a large amount of states currently permit unlawful accounts to be utilized to reject experienced candidates.
Desmond LeSure Professor Bolton ENGL 1020 19 April 2012 “Is the Three-Strikes Law fair and ethical?” There are individuals who were known as habitual criminals who constantly repeated the cycle of committing a crime, getting arrested, and eventually getting released. In 1993, Americans noticed that this was very costly to the public because the process of arresting and trying these criminals was expensive. American tax payers were beginning to become concerned with this issue and wanted something to be done about habitual offenders. Society is pushing the issue that it was more logical to keep repeat criminals in jail and not release them to commit more crimes. Politicians listened to society and executed a law that would put an end to
In April 2010, Arizona adopted the nation's toughest law on illegal immigration, provoking a nationwide debate and a Justice Department lawsuit. On July 28, one day before the law was to take effect, a federal district court judge struck down its most controversial provisions, including sections that called for officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws and that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times. In April 2011, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled against the State of Arizona and let stand the lower court's decision. The law, known locally as SB1070 or Senate Bill 1070, was aimed at discouraging illegal immigrants from entering or remaining in the state. It coincided with economic anxiety and followed
ABSTRACT Economic discrimination is a plague that affects many minorities. As a minority group, do homosexuals also experience economic discrimination? This paper explores the topic by researching workforce factors such as job, wage, and income inequality. From the research acquired, homosexuals are found to experience discrimination in the workforce as they are not, for the most part, protected by equal employment acts. It is harder for homosexuals to find and keep positions, and employers often treat them differently.
Arizona is one of the states where discrimination against immigrants has become a serious discriminative problem, which people who is illegally in the country have to face. An article from the internet says “In April 2010, The Arizona Governor Jan Brewer today signed into law Arizona's discriminatory immigration enforcement bill which requires law enforcement to question individuals about their immigration status during every day police meetings. The law creates new immigration crimes and penalties inconsistent with those in federal law, this new law asserts sweeping authority to detain and transport persons suspected of violating civil immigration laws and prohibits speech and other expressive activity by people who every day is seeking work in order to live” (Par 1). The officers who work in Arizona with this new law are required to ask every person they go across about their migratory status. I think that in some points of view, this law has token to far because they are not only taking advantage of undocumented people but they are also violating the right of freedom of
Governor of the U.S. state of Arizona, Jan Brewer signed on Friday, April 23 2010 the strictest immigration law in the United States. From that day, the police will have to check all people who look or act like illegal immigrants. Opponents of this law reported that it will become the basis for racist behavior and will violate human rights. The new law will affect people’s lives after 90 days of the day, the law was signed. Arizona is a state bordering Mexico and ruled mainly by Republicans.
Immigration Laws Many Americans continue to debate over immigration and its effects to the United States. Recent bills have passed that allow for state and local law enforcement to have control over immigration laws. Immigration laws should be enforced and controlled by the federal government rather than state and local law enforcement. State government in Arizona passed SB 1070 which allows state and local police to check the immigration status of anyone whom they arrest and allows police to stop and arrest anyone whom they believe to be an illegal immigrant. Such bills go as far as making it a crime if people fail to carry registration papers.
Eduarda, being of Spanish decent would take offence to this, followed by many other Mexicans and fear that individuals will, if not already have gotten the wrong perception. Based on a study that was done at Southern Illinois University, over 900 films show that arabs are heartless, brutal, uncivilized, crazy religious and fiend wealth/power. According to the National Association for education of young children, kids between the ages of 2-5 start to become aware of race and what it means to have a different racial background. Kathy Maio, a feminist journalist in Boston, USA, states that their have been many instances where racism was identified in Disney movies. Jungle book, portrays gorillas and orang-utans to sound like African-Americans.
The United States does have a strong history of hostility towards specific immigrant groups such as the Nativists who opposed Irish immigration around 1850 and systematic bias against Japanese and German immigrants just before and after the second world war. Jews were also popular targets in the 20th centuary. These days most hostility is geared towards the Latin American immigrants as they are seen to be the largest group of immigrants entering the United States today. Some Americans have not completely adjusted to the largely non-European immigration and racism does occur. Hostility towards people of middle-eastern descent has also become apparent after the September 11th attacks conducted by an Islamic extremist group known as Al Qaeda.
Religion or spirituality is important for Hispanic Americans and Latino Americans, and plays a central role in their lives. Again, individuals who move away from religious or spiritual tradition are not favorably received. Hispanic or Latino and Asian immigrants and their children support many of the same public policies (from reformed health insurance to better education, from less costly housing to better and more secure jobs). Minorities often different more among themselves than they do with the white majority. Hispanic are aware of big differences within the group especially among the Mexican American (largest group) and the Cuban American the latter being more conservative, to vote Republican, to become American citizen.
