Singapore's 'anti-Chinese curry war' - Telegraph

Singapore's 'anti-Chinese curry war'  - Telegraph | CONFLICT AND PREJUDICE | Scoop.it
What began as a quarrel over the pungent aromas wafting from one family's kitchen has bubbled up into Singapore's spiciest protest movement, with 40,000 people set to express their national pride this weekend by cooking curry.
Matthew Tan's insight:

The family should have been sensitive to the other family cooking curry. If they could not stand the smell of curry they could close their windows. We should respect each others culture and race.

I did not know that a small quarrel over the pungent aromas of curry could lead to many Singaporeans voicing out their opinions about curry, which is a national dish. I felt that the Chinese family who came from Mainland was very inconsiderate. They did not respect the culture of the Indian family and even brought them for mediation!  I believe that Singapore is a multi-racial country and we should not be going against other races.Instead, we should all accept one another's different cultures and live peacefully. Conflicts such as the 'curry war'  would  not have happened if the Chinese family had just accepted the culture of the Indian family. I am glad that many Singaporeans felt that cooking curry was not a huge problem and curry was enjoyed by many people.

I am surprised that racism can occur in Singapore due to such small matter. I think the family from mainland should try to accept the smell. If the smell is really unbearable to them, they can actually close their doors and windows or even spray some perfume in their house. Since Singapore is a multi-racial country, it is understood that we should all respect each other race and religion. Beside, I think it is very rude for the family from mainland to be making such remarks on a Singapore's national dish. I really hope that such small matter will not happen in Singapore again so that we can continue to live in peace and harmony.

with Juan Zuniga fracturing Neymar's back, strings of hateful racist death threats came directing at Juan. Regardless of the incident being accidental or intentional, i feel that racist comments and remarks are not necessary, not just for this case but for any situation as well. Was his race to be blamed for injuring Neymar? The answer may not obvious to some. So it is sad to see racism still happening today.

The 1964 race riots were a series of riots that took place in Singapore during two separate periods in July and September between Chinese and Malay groups. The first incident occurred on 21 July during a Malay procession marking the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

Matthew Tan's insight:

We should respect each other race and religion. We should like in harmony with each other so as not to cause conflicts.

Matthew Tan's insight:

I think that the woman should have been convicted. If she is not convicted she might be racist again. We should respect each other and not say insensitive and racist remarks.
