Consider this question: What are an average American’s perceptions about Muslim/Arab American and Christian American groups?

Copy each descriptor from the paragraph below and paste it into the table according to how you think an average American would categorize the descriptor. Would each descriptor best apply to Christian Americans only, Muslim and Arab Americans only, or to both groups? In organizing this information, you are conveying what you think most Americans perceive about these groups, so there are no “right” answers. In fact, your table categorizations may be markedly different from what you personally believe is true.

We also agreed that both parties allowed women to go to work and that they had moderate moral values. religious values perpetuated in politics. His and mine were both based not only from opinion. but that was simply based off of the past experiences with either 9/11 or assumptions that we make from hearing information about how Muslim or Arab men treat their women. male-dominated political environment. We both however did feel that Muslim or Arab Americans could be violent. Yes. flexible moral values How are your table answers similar? How are they different? Well we both seem to agree on the fact that Christian Americans and Muslim – Arab Americans can be family orientated and be either well educated or undereducated. women who go violent. but from personal experience. everything from then on practically were completely different. modest dress. socially inclusive. we still came to the conclusion that they have some moral values. conservative political values. religion part of government.

and even read. but at least we have the option to. Well. but we should know as Americans that we should not judge people by what we have seen.they all become friends. Women may be told that there is a lot of things that they can not do or should not do. How do you think an average American’s perceptions of each group are created? I believe that a lot of the groups are perceived by media coverage. If you take two red men and bring in a blue man. We should make our own decisions and choices to decide for ourselves. Whether it be on TV or in the newspaper. Most governments does not have a law or a requirement to pray two to three times a day or government facilities that are specified for prayer. hear. heard. ETH 125 . The two things that represents the Muslim Arab Americans is that they are governed by Qur'an and that religion plays a part of their government. But the blue man warns the red men that they should watch out for the yellow man. name one or two descriptors that you think represent true facts about each group and one or two descriptors that you think are false. That immediately sets the yellow man up for failure before he is even given the chance. Muslim and Arabs love their family just like Christian Americans do. not that there is anything wrong with knowing in advance. Two things that would falsely represent Christian Americans would be being governed by Qur'an and being oppressive to women. However. outside of the church. Two things that would misrepresent Muslim or Arab Americans would be saying that they are undereducated and that they are not family orientated. Groups of people respond to what they see. or read.From either or both tables. if I had to pick two that I think represent true facts about each group than I would say that Christian Americans are governed by Biblical law and that politics are open to both sexes.
