Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | Conflict and Prejudice |
We tend to underrate the importance of racism as a factor in the ongoing crisis in Mali. A short item from Radio France Internationale–English is a good reminder.

David T's insight:

getting arrested for the colour of their skin.

why? it is because they are infiltrators

i feel that this is very shocking to have this happening in mali

to have conflict because of racial discrimination, that although they come from close places, there is still racism by skin colour

Ann Tan's curator insight, July 16, 2014 10:57 AM

Racism is one of the main cause to prejudice. I think that what MNLA is doing is wrong, they are bias towards the 'whites' which would raise the racial tension among the Africans. I think that fair and equally treatment among the Africans is very important. This is to bring harmony among them. I strongly think that the skin colour does not matter, and that they should learn to accept one another. I believe that without racism, it would resolve many conflicts and prejudices happening around the world.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 2014 11:02 AM

Racism is actually a belief that inherent differences among the various human races that determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. I strongly think that Mali should treat everyone in their country equally regardless of race or colour. Most human conflicts are caused mainly due the race factor which creates destruction and many social problems. In my perspective, I think that no one should judge anyone by looking at the colour of their skin tone or their race. It is who they really are that matters.


Ong Meng Kiat's curator insight, July 17, 2014 9:55 AM

This is a saddening story to see that discrimination is still so prevalent. Mali should learn to see everyone as the same kind, so that everyone can be happy and advance as a country at the same pace. It would do not good if we are fighting a "civil war" in our country as no one will stand to gain. Easing up tensions in Mali and having peace is the best remedy.

Two Minutes Hate: Racism in the 21st Century

White Supremacy =/= Racism. Fighting against White Supremacy is not making racism disappear. There can be no Diversity without Racism to occur, and Racism ca...
David T's insight:

this video shows racism that is not commonly seen or thought about

the racial grouped shown being discriminated of is the whites this time instead of the usual blacks that most people think are the ones that are discriminated 

i feel that this is the reality of the world now of days and its quite sad to see all the hate happening

Racism becomes normal among young Israelis

Racism becomes normal among young Israelis | Conflict and Prejudice |
Something stinks in the state of Israel says Israeli citizen Ilene Prusher. That something is racism, both the assaults on non-Jews by Jews and the wider refusal to give such racism its proper name.

David T's insight:

i feel suprised that racism has reached a state where israeli soldiers just target Palestinian children as part of their effort to document 

a point. where their mindset is that all palestinian children are guilty of things although it may not be true

Phonehtet Aung's curator insight, July 13, 2014 9:56 AM

What they have done and said about the Palestinian children are horrifying and this should not have happened. Everyone should be treated equally and they should not abuse other races.

Jia Hui's curator insight, July 13, 2014 11:22 AM

I know that a person's hatred for someone cannot be erased in a short period of time. However, the Israelis should never "seized and detained dozens of Palestinian children, some aged as young as eight", no matter how much they are against the Palestinian people. They should put themselves in the shoes of the Palestinian parents so that they will know how much it hurts to lose their children and they would not want the Palestinian people to do the same to them. Therefore, if only each party is willing to learn to accept the other and try to get along with one another, there will then be hope for this conflict to end.

Joel Lim's curator insight, July 13, 2014 11:55 AM

From this article, i felt shocked those Israeli soldiers could just target Palestinian children for doing nothing and was forced to confess to crime they did not commit. The soldiers mindsets are all wrong about Palestinian children and if this goes on, the consequences will dire.
