Racism. This would be an example of ethnophaulism. E thnophaulism is verbal slang against a group. For example calling a black person nappy headed, a white a cracker or som…eone from China a chink. Sorry for the examples being offensive but it is needed to help define.
Prejudice is the personal irrational generalization about an entire category of people (be it based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.); it is a feeling or be…lief. Discrimination is the treatment of people in a negative or distinct fashion because of their membership in a category of people (be it based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.). Discrimination can be shown in demonstrable actions, such as laws, housing, jobs, etc.
Answer 1 Some people may hate them just because some Arabs and Islamic people were behind the bombings and stuff no offence but just because some of the bombers were Muslims… i don't think that the whole religion and people who are Muslims should be hated. Answer 2 You should read an orientalism article by Edward Said. Orientalism was something that traditionally divided the East and West, and it is still used as a powerful political tool today. Orientalism basically states that people from the East (including middle east as we now call it) were exotic, seedy, deviants... all sort of negative connotations. You can see a great example in the Disney movie Aladdin. Ali is portrayed as a "street rat" and he steals and lives this bohemian-type life, but he is mostly cavalier and has grown used to living a simple life. This is a very charming and endearing reading of his character, but orientalists would say that his stealing means that he is without morals and order, and that his simple lifestyle is the result of a simple mentality. When people commit hate crimes against Arabs and Muslims they are seeing the systems that those people follow as more primitive, simple, and inferior. For many people, this view justifies imposing an order on others, which leads to war and oppression. Arabs and Muslims are simply viewed by many as one entity, one body that acts a certain way and looks a certain way. Orientalism is a form of stereotyping that for centuries scholars believed to be valid and true.
Prejudice (or foredeeming) is most often used to refer to preconceived judgments toward people or a person because of race/ethnicity, gender, social class, age, disability, re…ligion, sexuality, nationality or other personal characteristics. Discrimination is the prejudicial treatment of an individual based on their membership - or perceived membership - in a certain group or category.
It is unfortunate to have prejudice against any human on the basisof religion, race, color or country. All human beings are theoff-spring of a single couple - Hazrat Adam (AS)… and Hazrat Eve(AS). As such we are all brotheren. All of us have equalfundamental human rights. Unfortunately, practically it does nothappen. Different people have prejudice against others. It is notthe case only with the Muslims or Arabs. Anyhow, sane mindedpersons don't nourish prejudice against Muslims and Arabs. TheMuslims are living in many countries of the world. No one dislikesthem if they abide by the law of the land. As concerns terms, Prejudice towards Muslims can be calledAnti-Mohammedanism and Islamophobia, and Prejudice toward Arabs istypically called Anti-Arab Sentiment.
How did the Crusades affect the economy and government of Europe and relations among religious groups?
Well during the crusades many feudal lords lost Thieu money soldiers and recourse's their fore this weakened their power. Crusades also caused new conflicts between Christan's… Jews and Muslim's. Jews ended many Jewish peoples lives on their way to Palestine. Once their they did the same 2 Muslims fear of hatred Christians continued many years After the crusades ended.
African-Americans, because they were enslaved for years and are still discriminated against.
If you are being governed by another country are you being prejudices discriminated segregated or in slavery?
What other groups of people suffered from discrimination and prejudice at the same time as African Americans?
The Chinese. (or are they called Sino-Americans)
Why does our American government favor relations with Jewish Israel over their Muslim Arab neighbors if America is a country of all faiths as well as nonbelievers?
America is not "Just" a Christian nation. America is a mixture of many faiths including Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, Atheist, Agnostics, and people who just d…on't care one way or the other about religion. The one thing we all Americans have in common is the fact that we pay an exurbanite amount of taxes to our government. Much of that tax money is given to Israel. A reasonable person would understand that Israel's favored status as a recipient of our collective tax dollars makes no sense. As a matter of historical fact the Jews rejected Christ, tortured, and killed him. If indeed America is a "Christian" nation, why does our government pander to the descendants of those who killed our Lord?
Who formulated a typology that shows how prejudice and discrimination are related but not the same thing?
W E B Debois
Predjudice and discrimination are basically the same thing but they are different prejudice Alouthough people relate it mostly to racism to african americans it actually means… your against something with no reason or for unreasonable reasons. discrimination means treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit. So I guess you could say they are both related because they both mean to be against something for reasons someone cannot help. also you could say there both against something i guess but it wouldn't be very descriptive.

Because Muslims have different religious believes comparing to the Jews.
This is a very difficult question to answer given the wide varietyof Muslim opinions on the matter and the amount of doublethinkpresent in many Muslim opinions. 1) Muslims T…hemselves: Muslims are consistentlyopposed to any discrimination or prejudice against Muslims forbeing Muslims. This refers to situations of massacres of Muslimssuch as what the Rohingya face and Kosovars used to face, to theinformal discrimination that is common in Europe and the Americas. 2) Religious Minorities: Muslim-majority societieshave discriminated against and have continued to discriminateagainst Non-Muslim members of their society. There are problemsconcerning treatment of Christians, Jews, Baha'i, Druze, and Yazidithroughout the Middle East. Iran has problems with the treatment ofZoroastrians. Pakistan and Bangladesh have problems concerning thetreatment of what few Hindus remain. As concerns the discrimination against Non-Muslims, the majorityMuslims continue to refuse to listen to the claims of theseminority religions that they are being discriminated against andthat all they want is fair treatment under the law. They accusethese people of being Anti-Muslim and wishing to denigrate Islamwithout cause, even when nearly every Human Rights group agreesthat the situation for these minorities is problematic or dire.Some Muslims have protested this treatment, but they have oftenbeen branded as traitors, secret Zionists, and non-Muslims.Therefore, it must be assumed that most Muslims support this typeof discrimination. Anti-Semitism is especially common in Muslim communities and many(but not all) Muslims believe that the Jews are eternal enemies ofMuslims, are descended from apes and pigs, kill Muslims forenjoyment, and many other commonplace Anti-Semitic rhetoric. Thereare numerous rallies where Muslims declare their unending supportto the eradication of the Jewish people and will occasionallypraise Hitler's "achievements" in this regard. There are somecenter-line Muslims (in addition to more liberal Muslims) whooppose this like Yusuf Hamza and Tariq Ramadan, but polls amongMuslim communities show deeply-ingrained Anti-Semitic attitudes anda lack of knowledge about actual Jewish customs, beliefs, andhistory. 3) Ethnic Minorities that are Muslims: Additionally, there is a large amount of discrimination againstMawali (Non-Arab Muslims) in countries with large Arab Muslimpopulations. Common examples include the treatment of the Kurds,the Circassians, the Darfurians in Sudan, the South AsianImmigrants to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, and the historicalrepression of Amazigh/Berber culture in North Africa. There has been some change in the Middle East as concerns the Kurdsand the Amazigh. Each group has begun to achieve partial autonomyin their countries. The South Asian Immigrants are not as welltreated and discussion on their situation is stifled. The status ofCircassians varies by country, with Jordan giving them many rights,but Turkey denying them a right to their unique culture. Darfuriansare still under attack from government-sponsored militia. However,it seems that progress is being made to discuss the well-being ofthese people, mostly outside of the countries where thediscrimination is taking place. 4) Women: Most Muslims oppose discriminationagainst women when it is phrased as such. However, they generallysupport laws and actions that are seen to be discriminatory towardswomen such as: daughters inheriting at half the rate of sons, womenbeing equally liable for rape as men, women being dissuaded fromgetting an education, and men presumptively getting custody of thechildren in a divorce. Less commonly supported, but still legal inmany Muslim-majority countries, are honor killings (where a femalevictim of rape or female participant in consensual premarital sexis killed by her family for "shaming them") and female genitalmutilation (where the clitoris is removed in a very painfulprocedure). 5) Sexual Minorities: Homosexuals, Transsexuals, andnearly every other color of the "LGBT rainbow" are activelydiscriminated against and punished in Islamic societies. Almostevery Muslim-majority nation has criminalized homosexual sex actsand nearly a third have instituted the death penalty for suchoccurrences. The only three Muslim speakers who have attempted to moderate theIslamic approach towards gays are Irshad Manji, Tawfik Hamid, andTarek Fatah and all three have been branded as "Anti-Islamic" and"Misguided" by most Muslims. There are many more "Conservative"Muslim Clerics who extol the virtues of butchering homosexuals andhave large followings. This would show that most Muslims activelysupport Sexual Minority discrimination. 6) Apostates and Atheists: Those who leave Islamare subject to both legal death threats (in countries like SaudiArabia and Iran) and extralegal death threats, primarily in theirhome communities. While most Muslims would argue that Apostatesshould not receive the death penalty, they support measuresostracizing them and making life more difficult for them. In Egypt,for example, it is illegal to change your religion from Islam toany other religion and since religion is on a person's ID card,this prevents a person's ID from reflecting their beliefs. Atheists in general are ridiculed and ostracized. Atheism inIslamic communities is rare and where it does exist, its membersoften keep their opinions in the closet to prevent recriminations.Organizations that help out Atheists in Islamic communities, evenin Western countries, are so afraid of such recriminations, thatthey do not keep membership lists and do not disclose meetinglocations.
