Doll Test

Video that BSC4 Scholars watched on 2/712.

Nathan Soh's insight:

I think that this just shows the discrimination the black feels in the US. Even as children do they think that the white doll is better just because it is white and it has blue eyes, while the black doll is ugly because it is black. This shows how racist the people are among the blacks and whites. "Why is this white child smarter?" "Because she looks just like me." This kind of racism makes me feel angry as the whites feel superior just because they are white.

This shows the discrimination of the blacks in US. The white doll has blues eyes and being white, the children thinks that it is better and nicer as compared to the black doll. This video shows how the children are being racist to even a doll. In conclusion, in this video, white is somehow more higher class or more lovable.

The extremists frequently attack Rohingyas and have set fire to their homes in several villages in Rakhine.

Nathan Soh's insight:

I feel very angry at the extremist for their racist acts against the muslims. They have done nothing wrong to deserve this kind of suffering. This kind of prejudice which is caused by racism is very useless and people of different races should learn to live in harmony despite of all their differences.

Innocent people die, got badly injurd. They did nothing wrong, just because the extremists cant accept their beliefs. These actions are so self-centre and undesired. Only if they can come to an understanding, then so much sacrificent cant be prevented. The govenment could had react faster, then many lives could had been saved.

After reading this article, I felt angry that the government did nothing to help the Muslims. The fact that the Muslims and Buddhist were treated differently led the conflict and prejudice due to the unfair treatment. At the same time, it was very heartbreaking to know that the Muslims' houses were being burnt down and were left homeless. They were neglected and tortured. Therefore, I think that the Muslims and Buddhists should be treated equally to prevent such prejudices they have among them.

It can be seen clearly that the Myanmar government not giving citizenship to Rohingya muslims is an act of racism. Also, the Buddhist extremists targeting them by attacking two mosques and hundreds of Rohingya Muslims’ houses is an act of racism. I strongly suggest that the government in Myanmar should treat its people regardless of race and religion and treat everyone equally.

Teaching about Racism in Japan

Is there racism and discrimination in Japan? I was surprised to find out that almost all of my high school students (about 1000 students) were not aware of t...

Nathan Soh's insight:

I feel that racism and discrimination is a very redundant thing and not many people know about its existence in their own country. Be it against Koreans, or blacks, it is still a problem. It enrages me when i think of being discriminated just because i am different. It just isn't fair.

There are a lot of discrimination in Japan but many students do not know that. Maybe it is because of how they are influenced. They discriminate against Koreans or even Okinawa people. A lot of this discrimination is wrong. People might say they are loud, party too much, but it is definitely wrong.

After watching this video, I realised that many Japanese people were oblivious about their country's racist nature. I think it is because the Japanese government had censored most of racist issues thus,  Compared to the Germans I don’t think the Japanese sense of racial superiority is that specific. There is a sense of Japan’s superiority politically speaking. I think the sense of Japan’s superiority fundamentally comes from the fact that Japan is a unique country because of its emperor system, it’s a divine country, that kind of thing. That is why Japanese dislike foreigners coming to their country as they are afraid that foreigners might ruined their traditional ways and culture. The Japanese people want to preserve their culture very badly. In another words, I dare to say that Japanese people are rigid and narrow-minded, I think ten years down the road if japan is still like that, it's economy will go down hill. 

Emily Lai Yin's curator insight, July 13, 2014 9:57 AM

It first surprised me to know that students in Japan are not aware of racism and discrimination in their own country. but I came to realised that they were most probably influenced by the older generation when they were young. such discrimination to people with different races and origins such as Koreans, Okinawans and burakumins are quite severe and for most students to not realise it must mean that they were mostly likely raised in a way that they were being taught to discriminate people for their origins naturally. this situation certainly needs to be changed as the discrimination will only get from ad to worse as time passes if nothing is done to stop this "natural discrimination".
