Abstract:
The purpose of this brief is to focus on the shifting perception and discrimination against individuals of Middle-Eastern decent. Particularly, discrimination in the form of Racial Profiling and Unequal Employment Opportunities has disproportionately impacted Middle-Easterners in the United States since the September 11th, 2001 attacks in New York. Magnifying the issue is the racial classification of Middle-Easterners as Caucasian, rendering them ineligible for protection as a minority group.
