Discrimination How We Can Learn From Our History To Prevent Discrimination
Main Points on Discrimination • What is Discrimination? • Who is affected by discrimination? • How has History repeated itself when dealing with discrimination? • How can we learn from our History about how to prevent discrimination? • What can I do to prevent discrimination?
Definition of Discrimination • People who are treated differently based upon their sex, race, color, nationality, ethnic or national origins or married status.
Who is affected? • Everyone • Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc. • Disabled • Homeless • Homosexuals • Workers
Repeated History • History repeats itself, that’s a fact • Example: The treatment of the Japanese Americans during WWII vs. the treatment of the Afghani Americans after Sept. 11 • Both were races persecuted after a terrible attack on America by person(s) of the same race • Yet after realizing the mistakes we made with the Chinese we still are carrying out similar acts of discrimination with the Afghani people
How can we prevent it? • We must look at our past mistakes for answers • Example: If you miss a problem on a test • You go back and figure out what you did wrong • Then you don’t repeat the same mistake twice • Americans must look at our past and not repeat ourselves no matter how desperate the situation. • Another way to prevent discrimination is to never hold prejudice against a human being for how they look, dress, or live there every day life.
What is prejudice? • An opinion, judgment, preference, or conception formed without knowing or examining the facts. • Basically prejudice is the prejudgment of another human being before knowing who the person really is
What Can You Do To Prevent Discrimination • Don’t judge someone or something you do not know • Don’t persecute someone for something you do not understand • Don’t let fear get in the way of logical thinking
History and the Present • History is a valuable tool in learning • History can help us overcome obstacles not just in terms of discrimination but with all aspects of life; discrimination is a small part of our history • We must apply history to the present day
