Discrimination between uae nationals and indians in the uae

I have a social science assignment to write a research proposal about discrimination between UAE nationals and Indians within the UAE. It has to include an annotated bibliography in APA style with at least 15 resources including books, journals newspaper articles and any other relevant material.I also need a literature review on the resources giving an opinion on the resources. I would prefer that no websites are included unless they are covered by a copyright and only to be used if needed.

The paper should be objective and not be judgmental or include personal opinion. The paper should not be over critical and not give a personal opinion. I would like the paper to be finished by the 20th of October. I have included a transcript of an interview and would like some of it to be included in the paper. The following is the transcript of the interview.

Omeir (me,the researcher) : I would like to ask you about racism. Did you ever experience racism in your own country?

Mrs. Janet: Not personally, but I m aware that there is a problem with racism. Where I come from there is not really a big ethnic population. There s an Indian community, a Pakistani community and a Chinese community but they keep themselves to themselves. There have been cases, especially among the youths, where they go out at the weekend and play a game called Paki Bashing. Where they go out and look for people and wearing different clothes like turbans etc.. and because they are different and people are perhaps a little bit afraid of them, there was some violence. It still goes on but people are becoming more understanding of other ethnic minorities living within their community.

O : Do you think that here in the UAE there is discrimination against other nationalities, especially Indians because of their large numbers?

J: yes, I do think so. I had never really experienced racism first hand until I came to the UAE 20 years ago from UK. The first thing I thought was that people of the same nationality were much harder on their own kind. If you were a professional Indian they really treated people in menial jobs like laborers and taxi drivers very badly and I found that quite shocking that people could treat their own nationality worst that other people.

O: I know your working in a British school and I used to study there. When I studied there, there were no Indian teachers teaching English, all of them were British. Are there any Indian teachers now?

J:Yes, we do have. About 12 years ago the school employed an Indian teacher but she was born in Britain, had a British passport and had been educated in Britain but it did cause problems. A lot of people complained that their children were in her class and because they were paying for private education in a British school they wanted British faces which really meant European faces not Indian face, so it was a problem. More recently, the school has employed an Indian teacher born and brought and educated in the UK and there has been no problems so far. So, that does show you that there has been a change in attitude towards Indians.

O: Do you think the attitudes towards the Indians has really changed recently?

J: Yes, and one of the reason the attitudes have improved is that there is a much bigger professional class of Indians. Before they tended to be taxi drivers and laborers as I mentioned earlier but because the education system has improved many Indians have many important jobs so I think because of that people cannot get away with treating people with a different color skin with a bad attitude. I think they have to be shown respect.
