Racial Profiling Of Arabic People After September 11

1272 words - 5 pages

A series of tragic events occurred in United States. On September 11th, 2001 the Twin Towers in New York City were destroyed by two planes that were hijacked by Arabic people. As planes were crashing into the Twin Towers, regular people saw the tragedy take place. All they could do was stare in despair as they watched the towers come crumbling down. The Pentagon in Virginia also was also crashed into by a hijacked plane. Thousands died and many were left injured. The Arabian people laughed and cheered at the sad moment that took place in the United States. The Unites States will never forget what happened. The Arabian People scarred us for life. After the attacks on September 11th, 2001, there was a dramatic increase in racial profiling against Arabic people in the United States.
Americans were pissed off and angry at the Arabian race. As they giggled and smiled, we were all frowning and crying at the sadness that took over our nation. The Unites States defines racism as a discrimination of another race made by another race or the same race; also known as hatred. The Arabian community had a huge controversy in Israeli. “The Israeli citizens are forcing the Arab people to migrate and disguard their citizenships. Israeli “public opinion” on Arabic people is that they’re “enemies” and “traitors”. (Crider 1). It may feel unfair to them, but why would you want terrorist living in the community. Since the dramatic event that occurred in the Unites States, there has been many, not only local but global racial comments towards the Arabian race. Did you know that Arabian people have a much greater fear of immigration or hate crimes than any other race since September 11th, 2001? (Ramahi 1) Arabian race is discriminated still today, even though the crashing of the planes happened 10 years ago. After 9/11 there has been a decrease in the Arabian people in America. Before 9/11 there was about 41% Arabian people; now that it is 10 years later, there has been a decrease and now there is only a 38% population. (Elliott 1). It may be surprising to some, but normal to the rest of us it is normal, especially since we and other nations have been “kicking them out”.
Within the U.S. many Americans blame all Arabic people for what happened on September 11th, 2001. Even if you are not Arabic, but you fit the description of one, people might judge you for the killing of millions that day. America’s response was disgusted and shocked by the crashing of planes that day. The United States wanted to retaliate and get them back, but we are stronger ad more powerful than them. We do not need the back and froth situations that could occur at anyplace and anytime. (Olmert 2) We point fingers to Arabic race for the doings of a couple grown men who were acting selfish and unreasonable. Not saying we egged the Arabic people on, but we did challenge them to a point of no return. Then gain we have reasons to be unfair and slander to the...
