When a question asks me to list two to three characteristics of orientalism and how may orientalism and prejudice contribute to hate crimes against the muslims,arabs,and related groups. FIRST of all is orientalism mean chinese , japanese etc. I don't know what it means and what is the question is asking can you provide with some examples at least one so i can see what i'm suppost to be answering.

Well, I guess first you have to try to dissect this question or assignment.

Orientalism:

http://www.answers.com/orientalism

You'd then have to determine what "orientalism" and prejudice have to do with the Middle East ("muslims, arabs..."). Hate crimes committed against people of an Oriental culture by people of Middle Eastern cultures? Hate crimes committed against people of Middle Eastern cultures by people of an Oriental culture?? The entire assignment is terribly fuzzy, as you already know.

My suggestion is to concentrate on only ONE of the Oriental cultures (Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, or ??) and try to determine if any people from THAT culture have committed hate crimes against any from the Middle East. If one culture turns up nothing, try another. If you find anything, then you have the focus of your paper. If you find nothing among all the cultures, then that tells you a whole lot in a totally different direction!

Another teacher here may have further ideas for you.

Another suggestion is to express your confusion and ask your teacher — the source of the assignment — to elaborate/explain the question in more detail. This would be best done on a one-on-one basis rather than in front of the class.

This should resolve the confusion in the assignment. Most teachers would not mind a sincere question of the sort.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.

Orientalism is basically the study of the east by the west. What we now refer to as the ‘Middle East’, used to be referred to as ‘the Orient’. I would say that Orientalism and prejudice was contributed to these groups due to the fact that they are all clustered near each other and their values, common practices, etc are quite similar to each other and what one group does, the other groups must as well considering their similarities in comparison to each other
