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.

Through this article, I have learnt that racism is a permanant cause of conflict. America, having once when black people are oppressed by a vicious white power structure,  have proved to the world how powerful and impactful racial tension is. Since both parties would not have any gains, why do people still discriminate another race? In my opinion, the feeling of superiority or inferiority  is the root cause of racial conflict.

Lee Hong Teng's insight:

I feel that something like scholarship should only be based on the student's ability and not on race. So there should not be any special rights for anyone in order to be fair. So people who qualify should get what they deserve.

This case is much closer to home, and shows how prejudice still exists in a country as modern as Malaysia. Many consider scholarships among other things should be prioritized towards the Malay locals, and some might even go so far to say that it is a fact. I feel this will do no good to a country and that those who receive scholarships should be the most deserving, regardless of race.
