Ming Ting's insight:

From this article, I can see that the Singapore government is doing a good job in treating all races equally, hosting programmes and activities to allow different races to bond together, to avoid having disharmony and providing a wonderful place for everyone to live in. I think that apart from the government efforts, the people must also bother to take part in those activities and care for each other to allow harmony to happen. I wonder whether if singapore will stay as a multi-ethnic country.

Thinesh Kannan's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:32 AM

Singapore is a country with a multi-ethnic society and therefore it is vital for Singapore to maintain racial harmony. Singapore has set up many different programmes to ensure everyone enjoys societal harmony. One example in which is the "bilingualism policy where students learn English and their own Mother Tongue". I think that this is good as it ensures that everyone lives in harmony. Also, these policies are reviewed periodically and tweaked to ensure they meet the current and future needs of the population.

I think that Singapore is a country with multi-ethnic society and thus it is important for them to mantain racial harmony. Or there will be many racial riots, and many lives would be lost.

Wu Weiyang's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:53 AM

I see that the Singapore government has implemented many policies and programmes to maintain the racial cohesion in Singapore. They have truly considered all aspects of race and religion and that is the key to our harmonious society now. I think that it is important that we do not have racial riots in Singapore because that would disrupt the peaceful lives of people and reflect badly on Singapore. Our economic will also be affected. The racial riots will lead to nothing, except lives lost and broken families. I wonder what will happen if such policies and programmes are not implemented.

Ming Ting's insight:

From this article, I see that people treat those whose skin colour is black, differently. They look down on them, casuing them to have low self-esteem. I think that we should treat everyone equally regardless of our skin colour as we are born like this. It is not their choice or fault that some are born dark-skinned. We should not judge others base on their skin colour. I wonder why is the society like this? Why can't everyone accept each other? We are all human beings, aren't we?

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the blacks are treated differently from the others, as if they are not important, all because their skin color are different. I think that this kind of behavior is rather disappointing and disgusting, seeing how blacks are no different from us. We are all humans, we have feelings. I wonder what could have made them think that they can judge a person just from his/her appearance, without knowing anything about them.

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the blacks are treated differently from the others, especially in the past as if they are not important, all because their skin color are different. I think that this kind of behavior is rather disappointing and disgusting, seeing how blacks are no different from us as we are all human and there should be equality. All of us have feelings. So i wonder how the 'Whites' will feel if they are discriminated like that 'blacks'.

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's curator insight, July 2, 2013 11:43 AM

Using the 'see-think-wonder', I can see from this article that the black people are treated very differently from white people. White americans often discriminate the African American people and often look down on them. Probably since the African American were once slaves that were freed by Lincoln. But that was history and we should not let it repeat itself, just because others are of a different skin colour does not mean we should look down on them. After all,they too are humans, and so are we. I think that people who look down of the black people should really reconsider their reasons. Why follow others ways when it is known that they have made the wrong decisions? I wonder how the black people cope with such discrimination and how their daily lives go about.
