Racial Prejudice in British Immigration Policy Introduction The purpose of this paper is that to highlight what I see as racist, unjust and inhumane elements in Britain’s immigration system and the culture of secrecy surrounds it. The permanent residents (who has indefinite leave to remain), central to this discussion not the illegal immigrants and bogus asylum seekers. Also immigration’s treatments of people coming over to Britain for a range of other reasons and with papers and visas they expect to be accepted have been highlighted. Mainly my argument is, compared with other countries, UK is more suspicious of all people entering the country and they discriminate against people from ‘underdeveloped’ countries. I have read and quoted from various books in the Immigration subject area.

Understanding French Opposition This essay examines the nature of French opposition to the US-led war in Iraq. In recent months this opposition has reinforced many of the negative stereotypes Americans associate with Frenchmen, and boycotts of French wines and “French” fries are now commonplace in the United States. However, writing the French off as “cowards” or “appeasers” is not only misguided but also fails to consider the complex nature of French opposition. Although inextricably linked, the opposition put forth by the French people is not the same as the opposition directed by the French government. Nonetheless, French President Jacques Chirac and other Gaullist politicians have used the popular opposition to further and justify their own agenda.
The tensions involved with crises also causes Islamophobia. Appleby points out that events like 9/11, the war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan makes people believe that the U.S. is losing their sovereignty and, “their interests are being threatened by outsiders”. A combination of these reason is the formula in making a person Islamophobic. This fear causes people to turn against one another and produces lots of hate. Hate is the fuel in which foolhardy decisions are made on, decisions like supporting presidential candidate,
In the war on terror, an unfair emphasis has been placed on the race and religion of terrorism suspects. This use of racial profiling as a tool in the war on terrorism is questionable at best. Alternatives such as smart profiling may be promising, but requires some modifications before it protects the right of all citizens. Some believe that racial profiling is a myth. People such as failed conservative Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork, the author of “Civil Liberties After 9/11,” feel that racial profiling “does not exist” and believe that “the idea [of racial profiling] rests on false assumption[s]” (Bork 290).
Any people who do not accept the Islamic State 's fundamentalist Muslim beliefs are killed. In other words if relativism causes us to undermine our moral confidence resulting in tolerance for other groups this is obviously a defect of the theory when applied to cultures that have intolerance integrated into their belief system. In turn, a critic could argue that the tolerance of relativism is not a benefit but rather a defect of the theory as it can cause people to stand by as aggressive belief systems take
People who discriminate against other races or other peoples sexuality are considered prejudiced. Prejudice is unreasonable feelings, opinions, or attitudes, especially of a hostile nature, regarding a racial, religious, or national group.

Racial discrimination is a pertinent issue in the United States. Although race relations may seem to have improved over the decades in actuality, it has evolved into a subtler form and now lurks in institutions. Sixty years ago racial discrimination was more overt, but now it has adapted to be more covert. Some argue that these events are isolated and that racism is a thing of the past (Mullainathan). Racial discrimination is negatively affecting the United States by creating a permanent underclass of citizens through institutional racism in business and politics, and creating a cancerous society by rewriting the racist history of America.

The government’s huge efforts to promote sedentism, reflects the common prejudice that nomads represent a deterioration that is extremely distant from modern life.
