Holland's Got Talent judge Gordon makes racist jokes to Chinese contestant Xiao Wang.

Racism in any form must not be tolerated! If you think what happened was wrong sign the petitions below 1) if you think Gordon should apologize https://www.c...
Rilwan Unfazed's insight:

I strongly believe that it is very irresponsible for an adult to make a racist joke or racist comment about someone, especially on international television. Even though it may be a joke to him/her, it may be very hurtful for the one on the receiving end. Such comments or racist joke could even spark off riots and conflicts in many countries.

I think that this judge has no self control and has no empathy for others. she openly made racist comments about a chinese contestant knowingly on national television. is this what we want our future generations to become? She as an adult has to serve as a role model and cannot afford to make such immature comments about anyone, no matter what race or religion the person is.

I really think that racism is something that must be stopped in this world. From  this article, i have learnt that Racism can lead to severe consequences such as the deterioration of mental and physical health. Racism against black Americans is one such example of the many scenes of racism that occurs all around the world.

Racist man on the London Underground

A racist man on the London unground starts shouting abusive and racist remarks at Japanese passenger then threatens to kill other passenger on train.
Rilwan Unfazed's insight:

I really think that this American man should not have done such an indecent act. Just because a man is Japanese and is the same race as someone who killed your relative or family member does not mean that he should take the blame for it. The reason why racism is so rampant in this world is because of  people like him.

Well, this is pretty ridiculous and stupid but i guess the guy was high or drunk or something so he probably wasn't thinking straight. I'm glad that at least someone stood up for this bullshit and defended the fellow japanese.This guy should honestly be put on counselling or something because this behaviour in public is unacceptable.Even if there was a conflict back in the days, the japanese people now have nothing to blame as it is their ancestors and not them who made those decisions.

This man is angry with the japanesepassenger as his family member was killed by japanese. i find this extremely unfair for the japanese passenger..he cant blame the japanese passenger just because the person who killed his family memebr is of the same origin as the passenger.this man also starts to threaten to kill other passengers on board. i think that this man needs to learn some self control as if he says the wrong thing to the wrong person, matter will escalate very quickly.

I have read some of the comments under this youtube vedio and to my delight, I found that this phenomenon is widely condemned by the people, this shows that racism is has become a minority. The idea of anti-racism is well-received by most of the people. I believe that the issue of racism will vanish if we continue to follow this trend.
