Swee Khim's insight:

Racism is a refuge for the ignorant. It seeks to divide and to destroy. It is the enemy of freedom, and deserves to be met head-on and stamped out. I think that rather than people taking notice of one another’s skin tone and rhetoric colour, we should strive to understand one another’s race better and not discriminate each other and resort to violence and human conflicts. This is because the consequences of those acts would only lead to the loss of many lives. Hence I feel that we should never resort to violence against racial discrimination like how the Pakistani got killed in Athens due to racist attacks.

#UN To Confront #USA On Persistent Racial Discrimination #racism

Widespread racial Discrimination continue to exist in the United States, and results in serious and pervasive human rights violations in a wide range of areas.

Swee Khim's insight:

I think that racism disempowers people by devaluing their identity. It is the opposite of the democratic principle of equality and the right of all people to be treated fairly. This would cause human violations to attain their rights and widespread racial disparities. In my opinion, racism is something you learn and not what you are born with. Hence instead of criticizing and discriminating people around us, we should learn to appreciate their existence. Even the UN cannot stand the level of racism and are searching for a treatment for racial discrimination to resolve this problem by confronting the USA. This is to prevent further conflicts between the nations and the people.

I feel that racial discrimination is a serious problem in our everyday lives. Even if we might not notice it, but we are sometimes already discriminating someone of different race. I feel that everyone should be treated the same and not treat them base on their race. Everyone should learn to appreciate people of other race and racial discrimination wouldn't be that be of a problem anymore.

Oh how a great nation has fallen. These people are throwing everything that Abraham lincoln and his soldiers had fought for, down the drain. That homeless African American was sent to jail without any possibility of being pardoned just because he was the middleman in the sales of drugs since he needed money for him to eat.

Racial discrimination is definitely a extreme problem which is still very prevalent in the world. If we do not discriminate others just because of the race, religion, gender, etc...,our world would be a more pleasant place to live in as everyone will work together as one family.This is because discriminating a group of people will only cause more hatred and no one will stand to gain. Thus, it is important for the American community to address these issues.

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_Yeh Swee Khim | Scoop.it
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.

Swee Khim's insight:

Racism is the prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. Hence I think that Mali should learn to accept both races and not discriminate each other as with a multi ethnic country where people get along well with one another, they can lend each other a helping hand when there is a need. In my opinion, racism is destructive where it can cause human conflicts, destroys community cohesion and creates divisions in society. However I strongly feel that colour does not matter. It is the inside heart of the person that matters.

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.
