I am trying to locate credible information in regards to the following question. Please note, I do not want the answers, just possible locations that might provide me with a place to start looking as I can not find anything recent.
According to research and news reports within the past 2 years, what are some of the changes the United States has made to policies concerning the treatment of Muslim and Arabic members of society?
Does any government or agency make POLICY that targets any race or ethnic group? Wouldn't that be akin to "profiling" (taken in the negative sense)?
I agree completely. Honestly I have researched this for 2 days and can find nothing regarding recent (within the past 2 years) regarding this. It has to be noted this comes from a text book that was published in 2006, and from what I am finding this question has been around since that time. I cannot find any "policy" regarding treatment of any ethnic group at all, or even generalities. I was hoping maybe I was simply missing something, but I do not believe I am.
No, you're not missing anything.
We have seen that question over and over. Whatever school you're attending is either writing bad questions or are writing "gotcha" questions. Either way, I'd be contacting the instructor and his/her supervisors to straighten out this ridiculous thing.
I appreciate what you are saying. I did contact my instructor asking for any insight into what might be considered either "credible" information regarding this or even a push in the right direction to finding information on policy. The only response I received was to search our library. Frustration to say the least.
I have read the textbook chapter several times trying to find any hint or idea of a "policy" that might have been noted at the publication of the book, but so far nothing.
Thank you for at least helping me to not feel so foolish in my inability to locate what I felt was impossible information.
I hope other courses are better than this one seems to be!!
This is honestly the first of its kind in regards to this situation I have came across in my year of attendance. I have had similar classes, but the assignments have all been relevant to today's world and research has been "easy" in comparison. At least in my other courses the information actually existed.
I have chosen to address this particular portion of the assignment by stating there "appears" to be no recent policy changes regarding this but....then go on to insert a piece of information I found on one groups attempt to change civil liberty policies. Best I could come up with.
