'Kids can end racism!' Proud father films the heartwarming moment his son is ...
Daily Mail
The heartwarming moment a four-year-old boy was embraced by his classmates after taking a week off school has been caught on camera.
Fatimah Mujibah's insight:

Conflicts caused by racism took place in a large scale many many years ago in the United States. Although many snide racist comments are still made today, the above article shows that if a child is raised well there is no place for racism. If it instilled in the child that a person's personality does not depend on their race, then as they grow up they will think that way also. This will also be carried on and taught for generations. Parents setting the right examples for their children, would never ever result in any conflicts based on racism.

Fatimah Mujibah's insight:

After some research, this conflicts is caused by the Israelis taking over the land that the Palestinians lived in because they want to create an all-Jew country of some sort. Although this conflict has been going on for a very long time it has been in the same repeated cycle on one side attacking at the other resulting in a numerous death toll. This time the death of the 3 teenage Jews followed by the revenge death of a Palestinian , the internal war has been capturing the attention of people all over the world again. Since it is the Israelis goal to conquer the land of the Palestinians, obviously they are armed and ready to get rid of anything that hinders them. So, when the Palestinians fight back for their freedom all they get in return is missiles blowing up they place they live in and blood of their family running the streets. The Palestinians do want freedom but the also fear the Israelis so they blew up the train tracks to prevent them from coming. In this 21st century when there are so many countries around the world which have multi-racial societies, i don't understand why the Jews just cant live peacefully with the Palestinians.

Committee releases report on Singapore's Little India riots, govt responds - Asian Correspondent

Committee releases report on Singapore's Little India riots, govt responds
Asian Correspondent
December 8, 2013 was a day that entered Singapore's history books.
Fatimah Mujibah's insight:

I think this riot wouldn't even have started if the Indian construction workers working here weren't angry in the first place. Maybe due their long working hours with one day rest, they had pent up frustration. I'm sure they must have many things they wanted to voice out but with many of them not fluent in English, they didn't know how to. Hence the death of their fellow worker was a sufficient enough a reason to spark their long bottled up anger and frustrations which cased them to overturn vehicles and setting them on fire. If their thoughts for better facilities or something and had been voiced out i'm sure the Singapore government would have come up with a solution to cater to their needs. Because in Singapore, no one is discriminated against their race.

Chan Yu Hui's curator insight, July 12, 2014 11:35 PM

Racism happens around the world, however It is very uncommon to see riots happening in Singapore, while  last year on December 8, it actually happened. Further investigations had reported that the riot on that day was caused by mainly the drunk workers, miscommunication between the workers and the bus driver .

No matter what had happened, i still think that we must always be vigilant and expect the unexpected so in order to react efficiently to the above scenarios.

The riot has already occured and would not be able to easily erase it from the Singapore history. However, some preventive meaures in the case whereby this incident will happen again, the police officers can try to improve on the efficiency of how they handle the situations, and more "real case scenarios" like this should be practised next time in their trainings.
