Eujuin Toh's insight:

Knowing that in today's world, people are starting to reduce gender discrimination, I have a sense of fairness in this society. Women are collectively seen as high in warmth but low on competence, similar to other low-status groups who are not a threat to the high-status group. I completely disagree with such a stand as no one should be deprived of the opportunity to do better.

I think that racism is happening everywhere in our daily lives. So a way to stop it would be to stop talking about it. It would not remind remind people about it and so long nobody talks about it, there will be lesser room for conflict over it.

Eujuin Toh's insight:

I feel that political conflict arises when different political parties with  their own ideologies try to achieve their interest. The main cause of this kind  of conflict is power which they want to capture. For the religion conflict, I think it can also lead to economic conflict. The Sunni are wealthier, and the Shia are poorer. So the press writes about the religious conflict, but it's also very much an economic class war between two groups. Conflicts indeed have a domino effect.
