Discrimination against Hispanics I chose this topic because it’s very interesting. I think that we all know that discriminating someone by their religion, color or nationality is illegal. According to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, its illegal to against a person based on his/her color, religion, sex, disability, and national origin. But this doesn’t mean its all over and the problem is solved, it may reduce the discrimination but not enough to eliminate it.

Does it matter what we are called: Latino or Hispanic? Does it change who we are as people? To an extent, most people do not know the difference between either. Typically, people group both terms as one singular item. However, Hispanic and Latino racial classifications are more than a broad category for people from Spanish-speaking countries. The words connote and represent a history of colonial terminology that based its success on the failures of innocent, historically peaceful, cultural groups. Hispanic and Latino terminology are political and economic in every sense. This paper will show that colonial leanings to control and govern people’s lives have yet to culminate, even though the era of imperialism ended a century ago. The United States, although far from its heyday as the singular house of power, still manages to achieve control and influence over the imperialized minds of groups of people, specifically Hispanics and Latinos.
Hispanics experience a great deal of prejudice and discrimination, the result of a perceived economic and cultural threat that Hispanics pose to non-Hispanics (Trujillo, 2011). Hispanics have a deep belief that all
Teen Hispanic Discrimination There are many stereotypes and racist remarks in today’s world. This essay will specifically be describing the discrimination towards teenage Hispanics. Many Hispanics are discriminated in today’s society. Discrimination and racism can emotionally scar a person. Many Hispanic teens dropout out of high school due to discrimination. Other Hispanic teens gain depression due to discrimination. Several other Hispanic teens even share their own personal stories about themselves being discriminated. Discrimination is an atrocity and this essay will be more of an informative essay to explain the barbarity of racial discrimination, specifically towards teenage Hispanics. I have a personal experience towards this topic so I will be sharing my own personal story towards this issue. Discrimination has become a grave dilemma and there has to be a solution to end this reoccurring situation. Many people see the crimes of racial discrimination occurring right in front of their faces, but they do nothing. Those people who just watch and ignore this grave problem are supporters for this issue because instead of putting an end to racial discrimination, those people just let it occur as if it is normal. I always question myself the same questions repeatedly; who has the right to look down upon a different race? What makes one race superior to another? Why is racism an issue? These are the most interesting questions to me, which makes a person think of today’s

Being part of a minority community is beautiful. Although, the burdens that come with it are truly unjust. I constantly grow more aware of the inequality between the people of my Hispanic community and those that have been redlined. I was born into a home where my mother could not find a job after my father left due to personal reasons, leaving my brother to bear the burden of taking care of eight children. It was as though poor people could not have nice things. I realized that for some strange reason, segregation is ever present in our society. A society that claims to have done away with that practice. It is not only the Hispanic coming, but also Latinos and African Americans that are being redlined. We battle with rampant racism along with
Unfortunately, Hispanic groups do face discrimination; however “Hispanics are significantly less likely than blacks (71%) to say they have experienced discrimination or unfair treatment due to their race or ethnicity at some point in their lives” (pewhispanic.org). However, most “Hispanics feel they have fewer employment opportunities simply because they are Hispanic”
“It is important to have an understanding about some of the myths and stereotypes of Latino/Hispanic Americans that contribute to the prejudice, discrimination, and bias this population encounters” (Shusta, Levine, Wong, Olson, and Harris 191).
Racial discrimination among Hispanics in the United States is on the rise along with stricter immigration laws, inadequate education for ESL classes, as well as they are prey to healthcare disparities. Data shows that many states in the United States are implementing tougher immigration laws for their individual states. Also, due to education cuts and kick-backs, English as a second language classes are becoming fewer in many school districts. Finally, health care disparities among Hispanics are on the rise due to lack of insurance, language barriers, and not enough medical resources to meet their needs.

There has been a great deal of discussion about racism in Ecuador. Some people believe that racism was a problem of the past because at present all Ecuadorians have the same rights, and just few people realize how this reality affects them. Stereotypes are the principal reason of discrimination. It not only involve Afro Ecuadorian and indigenous people, Cuban, Chinese and other migrants are also discriminated against. Despite the efforts of President Rafael Correa to instill pride in multiculturalism, the issue remains. Education is essential to fight against racism and discrimination; however, the communication must be directed to families, giving special attention to parents because they transmit to the children their thoughts and patterns
