Posted by minemine on Thursday, November 2, 2006 at 5:29pm.

The instructor states the following that i have to cover these points on a)characteristics of orientalism
b)how orientalism has involved into prejudice and discrimation
c)How to promote tolerance and reduce prejudice in our cities.

and the syllabus states this as well

(1) according to pyne, how have post 9-11 government responses affected prejudice and discrimination against muslims,arabs,and related groups?
(2) List two to three characteristics of orientalism. How may orientalism and prejudice contribute to hate crimes against these groups?
(3) what else can individuals do to promote tolerance and reduce prejudice in their towns and cities?
(4) responce has to be between 200-300 words.

the answer:(how does it sound and if it covers all points at least needed)what else can i add to it.

According to payne in making enemies she contends that throughout the united states there has been increased prejudice against muslims and arabs after 9/11 . she also contends that htis was exacerbated by the united states government's actions, and response, to these people in response to the terrorist attacks. more then just effectively condoning this type of behavior it also served to encourage discrimination as an act of pariotism.
The strong negative emotional aspect itied to mislims and arabs after 9/11 would entice a greater incidence of hate crimes against these groups. This would only be aggravated, as payne suggested, by those who were more patriotic;as treating muslims and arabs would beperceived as supporitng the United States. Furthermore, the affective prejudice made the arabs and muslims seem like lesser americans, or not amercan at all, and thus not entiled to the treatment that others deserve.
There are a number of htings that can be done to promote tolerance within local cities. A good portion of the danger is caused by ignorance of islam and arab culture. this could be mitigated by having a muslim talk about both culture and religion to groups of people in places usch as at churches, schools, and other large group gatherings. secondarily, local news outlets should be encouraged to do stories that positively report on islam and arab culture to reach an even broader audience. finally those that are not prejudiced hsould encourage multi-culture gatherings, and personally participate in these events and organizations.

Other teachers have answered your subsequent questions very well. But I must put my own two cents in to this post.

Orientalism implies distrust of anything or anyone who is Asian. Yet, you seem to be focusing on only the Islamic and Arabic parts of Asia. As you can see from this map, Islam is not the major religion in the Orient and most Asians are not Arabic.

Is it possible that the current prejudice against Muslims is due to the actions and diatribes of a few Muslims against the U.S. and its allies in the last 50 years?

In my opinion, the prejudice is not due to Orientalism, but is due to anti-Muslim and anti-Arabic sentiments.



I am under the impression that Orientalism would include the Muslims because Orientalism is the study of the far East. At bleast that's how I understand it to be
