Ms. Sue,

Please guide me to some info or data in order to discuss this statement.

According Pyne, how have post-9-11 government responses affected prejudice and discrimination against Muslims, Arabs, and related groups?
List two to three characteristics of Orientalism. How many Orientalism and prejudice contribute to hate crimes against these groups?
In addition to the examples of tolerance identified in the article, what else can individuals do to promote tolerance and reduce prejudice in their towns and cities.

    I don't have access to the article by Pyne, so you'll need to read it and make your own decision about what s/he said.

    Orientalism is not a term that's used by most people. It basically means anything connected with Asia. Remember that Asia includes a large number of diverse cultures and nations -- Japan, Russia, India, Vietnam, Myanmar (Burma), Afghanistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Korea, China, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Turkey, etc. In my opinion, Orientalism has nothing to do with prejudice against Muslims and Arabs.

    Rose -- your Axia class is the only class in any college that uses Said's "Orientalism" as a source. It is not a mainstream book. I'd refuse to answer this question because it's a terribly biased and unsubstantiated source.

    Check this site for more information.

    The last question asks you to explain what you think.

    Thanks a lot Ms. Sue

    You're welcome, Rose.

    In my college-level "non-western" art history course the introduction to Edward W. Said's Orientalism was a required reading assignment. Mine was not definitely not an Axia class, either.
