World War II Term Paper

… Jealous of the success of their Japanese counterparts, white American farmers sought to ruin their reputations through anti-Japanese propaganda (Daniels 17). They told their constituents in the state legislatures that Japanese farmers had driven them out of their land, which was clearly false, as the Issei had started their farms on new lands (Daniels 17).

The racism targeted at Japanese on the West Coast was sharply perpetuated by the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Not only were they seen as economic rivals for Americans, but after Pearl Harbor, they were viewed as "enemies." Many of those who discriminated against Japanese before the bombing, found the war against Japan to be a "stepping stool," for propagating fear of the Japanese-Americans. Journalists' published falsified or exaggerated stories to…. [read more]

Racial Reputations for Academic Excellence Explored

Society has dealt with stereotypes since the beginning of time. Whether those stereotypes were racially, ethnically or otherwise motivated they have continued to pervade the mindset of those who coexist on earth. One prevalent stereotype in America is the idea that Asian-Americans and American Jews have a reputation for academic excellence. It is such a strong believe in American society that one highly desirable magnet high school in the nation required Asian applicants to score higher on entrance exams than any other race to obtain a….

Chinese-American Studies: Wen Ho Lee Term Paper

… Not only did the common Asian-American feel outraged, but also the leaders of this community who were very outspoken in demanding that Dr. Lee be compensated in some way. Former UC Berkeley Chancellor Chang-lin Tien, the first Asian-American scientist appointed to the National Science Council, stated that the case was at a critical juncture after Lee's acquittal. As a result, instead of letting go of the issue, the Asian-Americans should unite and demand a complete investigation of the Wen-ho Lee affair. He believed that the community has a right to know if there were any racist reasons behind Lee's prosecution; since if there were any, the community should not tolerate and demand justice. Tien also believed that it was the initial protests by the Asian-American…. [read more]

Islam and Controversial Issues Research Paper

… Islamic Culture Viewed by Americans

Controversial and Sensitive Issues in the Islamic World

Religion can be considered as a controversial topic to be discussed amongst individuals due to the fact that every person feels ethnocentric about his own faith. For some people, religion holds a great significance as it creates a pathway to how their future life will be shaped. Within United State, there exist more than 300 religions and denominations (Wallace, 2013). The rate of diversity among religious group is increasing due to the increased number of people joining their religious group. Islam, which is the third largest religion prevailing in the world is also causing highly controversial issues because of the negative assumptions and misunderstandings about its morals, beliefs and values. Islam, when…. [read more]

Nikes Exploitation of Child Laborers in Asian Countries Thesis

… Nike and Child Labor

It is no secret that American-owned countries frequently outsource their labor to people in foreign countries, because foreign labor is cheap when compared to domestic labor. One reason that foreign labor is frequently less expensive than domestic labor is that many foreign countries do not impose the same types of regulations on employers as the United States does. One of the more controversial missing regulations relates to the use of child labor. While child labor is largely outlawed in the United States, and strictly and carefully regulated in the areas where it is not outright prohibited, many countries in the world do not take such a hard-line stance on child labor. As a result, many American companies are employing children in…. [read more]

Race and Ethnicity in Baseball Research Paper

… This is evident from the nickname "chief" which was used for the Indian ballplayers that how pigeonholed white Media was (Kirsch, Harris & Nolte, 2000).

African-American Players

In the United States of America, the contemporary form of baseball was first played by the African-Americans. However, this ethnic group had to experience the most difficult conditions and behaviors for attaining equal opportunity for participating on the diamonds in American baseball grounds. With the intensification of racial discrimination during the late 18th century, a lot of major African-Americans that played in the major leagues were barred and this consequently resulted in the accommodation of many black players to the isolation and unfairness in baseball. However, the young Black generation was given the opportunity at segregated educational institutions…. [read more]

Anti-Arab Racism Research Proposal

… Anti-Arab Racism

The objective of this work is to conduct a review of literature addressing the question of whether post-9/11 has been a significant factor in promoting popular consent for the erosion of civil liberties for all Americans? Has islamophoibia provoked people to give up their civil liberties through the reinvigoration of Anti-Arab racism?

The work of Rami El-Amine (2006) entitled: "Anti-Arab Racism, Islamophobia, and the Anti-War Movement" states that racism against Muslims and Arabs was around long before the terrorist attacks of 9-11 and that much of this racism has its basis in "Western Imperialism in the Middle East, especially Israel's colonization of Palestine." El-amine reports that the ABC-Washington Post poll of March 2006 states findings that it is the belief of people in…. [read more]

The Origins of Al-Qaeda: The World View of Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the leaders of Al-Qaeda."

Al-Qaeda and its leaders, Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri are frequently popular world news subjects.

The world seems to want to be constantly aware of the goings on of these people and their organization. There is no secret to the desired need for this information. As most people know Al-Qaeda is a significant and ongoing threat to the world, with regard to terrorist activities and continued fundamentalist extremism with regard to jihad, or what these extremists see as a holy war against the rest of the world, but mostly the Western world. This work will begin with a short introduction to the…. [read more]

Human Variation Thesis

… Physical Anthropology

Human variation

Physical anthropology and racism: The interaction between supposedly objective science and cultural assumptions

Because of the sad history of human society, few academic disciplines are immune to accusations of racism. However, anthropology, because it purports to study world cultures, has one of the most troubling histories of all of the social sciences regarding the justification of racial prejudices. This paper will examine how physical anthropology has been used as a liberator as well as an inhibitor of social equality. Anthropologists have used the physical aspects of different human beings classified under 'racial categories' over the centuries to justify pervasive social inequalities and outright segregation and brutal colonialism, as is evident in this excerpt from an early 19th century lecture, quoted at….

Catholic Church in Spain Term Paper

… On the flip side however, rising attitudes of liberalism, republicanism, socialism, anarchism, and intellectual pluralism ensured a direct and stiff challenge to the once accepted view of the clergy that Spain was always a catholic nation and would be one always.

The author has divided the book into twenty-four chapters. There is an introduction that surveys the Church from 1808 to 1873, followed by which there is a critical examination of the Church and politics from the year 1874 which signals the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy until the year 1930 which brought about the fall of the Primo de Rivera dictatorship. There is also a brief description and analysis of a host of topics that comprise the religious organization, clerical demography, the size, positioning…. [read more]

How Bosnians Assimilated into St. Louis Society Dissertation

… [15: Krogstad & Radford (2017), p. 3.]

Figure 3. Percentages of Americans supporting refugee acceptance: 1958-1999

Source: Pew Research Center, 2017

It is reasonable to posit that the American general public’s acceptance levels for refugees, even from Islamic countries, would be far higher if more people knew about the significant successes that have been experienced by the Bosnian refugee community in St. Louis. For instance, Bhaba and Mirga emphasize that:

Although the U.S. reaction to developments in the Czech Republic provides an interesting case study regarding the evolution of U.S. policy and the relationship between U.S. and European approaches, the Balkans would provide multiple additional and equally illuminating chapters. The U.S. role in Dayton or…. [read more]

Servant Leadership in a Conflicted Church Thesis

Applying Servant Leadership within a Conflicted Church: The Project as an Act of Ministry

My church, the South Iowa Chapel, like many modern churches, is a church in conflict. Conflicted churches are problematic because they drive parishioners away from the church, and, possibly, away from Christ. Conflict in a church can also be a difficult situation to remedy, because of the different personality types and leadership styles of people involved in the church. However, I feel that a significant part of the problem is that people are using traditional leadership styles in church. Jesus Christ was not a traditional leader. On the contrary, He was the epitome of a servant leader, one who leads through service to others. Obviously, He did a wonderful job leading…. [read more]

John Grierson the Documentary Film Developed Term Paper

… John Grierson

The documentary film developed alongside the narrative film, though largely during the sound era. It was shaped most profoundly during the 1930s as filmmakers began to record sociological an anthropological studies of different populations. Some of the early films were treated much as narrative films were and were widely released in theaters, achieving some popularity. In the early 1930s, this included such films as Nanook of the North and Moana, both by Robert Flaherty. These films were different not only because they presented real people in real situations but because they were filmed on real locations and not in studios. The silent film had sometimes gone outside the confines of the studio, but the advent of sound tied the camera to the soundstage…. [read more]

Middle East Has the Presence Essay

… If the Assad regime falls, however, civil war could well begin again, leading to a partition of the country. For the time being, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf monarchies have been least affected by the revolutions, and it is by no means certain that regime change there would result in governments any more tolerant of minority groups.

Contrary to its current situation, Islamic civilization in the golden age of the Ottomans experienced a flourish of art and culture that blended Arab, Persian, Egyptian, and European elements, and the result was an era of incredible intellectual and cultural advancements. At the height of its power and glory, the Ottoman Empire controlled all of the present-day Middle East, all of northern Africa, with borders as far east…. [read more]

Race for Colonies Term Paper

… This essay briefly describes fascism and explains how fascist governments came to power in Italy and Germany.

What is Fascism?

Historians do not agree on a single or precise definition of fascism but it generally refers to a totalitarian system of government, which emphasizes an extreme form of nationalism and/or racism, rejects liberal ideals such as democracy, freedom and individual rights, and attempts to build a new idealistic and regimented society by suppressing all dissent through the use of violence. Other features of fascism include the creation of an image of a mythical glorious past of a nation that has been lost; the conception of a nation in crisis; identifying a scapegoat responsible for such loss; and mobilizing the nation towards regaining its glorious mythical….

Race? Racial Formation Literature Review

… Hence, it is way too comprehensive to observe and control how difficult it is to be "colorblind" and treat everyone equally despite their origin and physical attributes.

To wrap up this argument, it can be said that the racial formation theory states that the society is encompassed with racial projects and discrimination. This concept of racial discrimination is purely ideological and is usually instilled in the minds of people automatically. A certain level of "common sense" is involved in each individual where that influences his or her way of comprehending, reacting and interpreting any situation. In circumstances like these, it is not possible to eliminate such a phenomenon unless it is tracked down, explicitly and implicitly in the social construct. Because race can be traced…. [read more]

Hernan Cortez With the Discovery Thesis

… Hernan Cortez

With the discovery of the American continent and its riches, the Europeans were determined to take advantage of the new land. Hernan Cortez, a troubled Spanish in search of glory, had been the first to break the peaceful relationship between the Europeans and the American continent. One of the first major clashes between the two had turned out as a result of the divergences between the Aztecs and the Spanish conquerors.

People have been trying to gain as much land and riches as they possibly could ever since the early ages. This act has triggered the process of globalization because of the frequent interaction between nations that man has made with time. After the great conquests done by the early empires the world….
