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- 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?
    According to Pyne (2003) the government is increasing discrimination and prejudice against Muslim immigrants. The government requires immigrants from Muslim countries to register with authorities when entering the country, by requiring them to do this the government is labeling the citizens from these countries as dangerous and possible terrorist. In the months following 9-11, 750 Muslim immigrants found themselves being detained by the Justice Department on minor immigration violations while they were investigated for ties to terrorism. New internal reports show that the government has often held people for long periods of time without any proof of terrorist links.

    There are many characteristic of Orientalism. Two such characteristics are; two different groups of people that are often mistaken as the same and a smaller culturally consistent group or country. Many of the immigrants coming to the United States are taking over jobs that the average American has given up. These jobs often include working in lower income neighborhoods which tend to be more violent and prone to discrimination. Muslims and Asians are also being stereo typed which leads to additional prejudice.
    We can help promote tolerance by not playing games that are violent and promote discrimination; families can get involved with organizations that support equalization and invite someone of a different race to into their home for a meal.
