Abstract

Ethnic and religious diversity is part of each society in the modern world and being an Afghan is another dimension of these differences in the United States. The research question for this study was to see if Afghan-Americans are experiencing more discriminatory practices as a result of the 9/11 events. The results of 502 Afghan-Americans demonstrated that they do report more discrimination in the post-9/11 era. Furthermore, the results of 280 males and 222 females demonstrate no difference in questioning of their civil rights in the United States. Implications and recommendations are offered for effective diversity management.

Keywords: Afghans, ethnicity, religion, Post-9/11, Muslims, diversity, discrimination
