Discrimination Against Middle Eastern Americans, Still Searching for Affirmative Action Rights

Pogue, Eric; Smith, Raymond Arthur

The September 11th attacks have largely alienated all Middle Eastern Americans from the rest of the country such that they are actively being discriminated against. Furthermore, attempts for reorganization as a collective unit are difficult as classification efforts largely obscure Middle Easterners as a distinct group. Only through new changes in legislative policy and a reintroduction into Academia can Middle Eastern Americans begin to be reintegrated into American Culture.
