Comparison of Racism in History I have a dream where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character -Martin Luther King Jr We have come a long way since the Civil Rights Movement in the United States Our cities are filled with numerous minority groups with different religions and cultures We live in a multicultural society where we dont have to think about hate crime too much We can feel safe when going to the corner store without being pasteurized by a mob of haters We live in a very safe country but instances during the World Wars make us pray that non-of that will ever happen in Canada again This ISP will examine the similarities and differences of racism and racial issues between a true-story novel called Obasan by Joy Kogawa and a fictional play called The Komagata Maru Incident by Sharon Pollock Each story is set in a different period during Canadas history World War I and II In the play The Komagata Maru Incident Sharon tells a story of the racist Canadian Government The setting of the play is in Vancouver and it takes place right after World War I Its about a group of 376 East Indian Immigrants who sail to Canada to start a new life but are not excepted due to the racist immigration officials The immigrants had a right to be in Canada because they were British subjects but Canada decided to shut their doors This shows how cruel the people were at that time Slowly the East Indian communities within Vancouver were beginning to get racist threats The whites complained about how the immigrants were taking over jobs because they were willing to work cheap It is overwhelming to think that just because of a different race it would mean non-whites couldnt do what whites do make a living
