Pei Ming Seah's insight:

African migrants came from Africa to Italy in hope of a better life. Yet, the Italy government are leaving the Africans to their own fate. Coming into Italy means that the Italy government has a responsibility as they are somewhat guests in a foreign country but, they are still being abandoned. Thus, I feel very sad for the Africans

The Italian government did not have a proper planning for the African refugees, this shows how the government has shown very little interest in helping the African refugees. The African refugees were wrong thinking that they would lead a better and more comfortable life in Italy. Due to the neglection of the society which is an act of racism, they were unable to even have basic necessities which might be as bad or even worse than where they came from. The government should treat everyone fairly in the country since the country has already accepted the African refugees as part of them.

As stated in the article, the African people have risked their lives searching for the refuges, I think it is basic human right to have a proper place to live in and receive education so that they can be self-reliant. The Italian government should take the responsibility to take care of its own people.

I strongly feel that it is an act of racism for Italy to not helping the people in Africa. In my perspective, I strongly believe that everyone should be treated equally as well as lend a helping hand to others regardless of race and religion. The government of Italy should teach its citizens to treat anyone regardless of which race or religion.

How racist bullying made 14-year old Khadeja Fahat's school life a 'daily torment'

Via Justin Gjerazi, Daryl Koh
Pei Ming Seah's insight:

From this article, I feel very sad for this girl. Because of where she came from, she got discriminated and and bullied till she had no confidence left. Her fellow peers just treat her like she is a terrorist. Why do her peers not try to put themselves into her shoes?

After reading this article, I pitied this girl. She suffered so much just because she 'wore a headscarf'. From a happy girl who smiled everyday, to dreading to go to school because she will be bullied and tortured, isolating herself from others, and eventually affected her health too. Imagine having no friends at all, with no one to talk to, but get insulting remarks, how would one feel? Those hurtful words musy have impacted her alot, causing her too lose her appetite too.  Also, I'm surprised that the teachers do not know how to deal with this situation. It is important for the school to educate the students on the effects on racism to prevent future conflicts and prejudice.

Since young, many have faced racist Islamaphobic abuse and I think that this is a relatively serious issue. As we can see from this article that Khadeja have suffered mentally because of all the thoughtless remarks passed by her classmates. This issue is so serious that she fears going to school as she is worried of the comments that she might face whenever she steps into school. Also, from this article we can tell that young people can pick up racist behaviour from parents or friends. I feel that the root of this problem comes from people who are insensitive towards this subject. Is it because they have not been caught in this situation? Like what the article mentioned, I think that by educating the younger generation against racism, it can help prevent all these problems from happening.

Great example of how 9/11 affected the treatment of Muslims.

Racist bullying: Far-right agenda on immigration ‘being taken into classrooms’

Racist bullying: Far-right agenda on immigration ‘being taken into classrooms’ | Conflicts based on racism | Scoop.it
The number of children seeking help for racist bullying increased sharply last year, as campaigners warn that the heated public debate about immigration is souring race relations in the classroom.

Via Leicester Worker, Dawn Choo
Pei Ming Seah's insight:

From this article, I wonder why people always judge others by their skin color or race. For example, muslims are called terriorists and bombers by classmates. Also, people with strong accents and poor English get called 'freshies' . How can all these classmates be this inconsiderate? We are all humans and so we are all equal but our treatments vary based on our race.

According to the article, immigrant students are being bullied and teased. I feel so sorry for these students as they need to bear such suffering at a young age. I think this is not only the local children's problem, but is also their parents' problem as their actions have influence their children. I think in order to solve this problem, community should take part to educate not only the children but also the adults to be role model to be friendly towards the foreigners.

Natasha Ho's curator insight, July 18, 2014 10:47 AM

From this article, I can tell that those who have been bullied because of their races have been affected and impacted very negatively. The students who were muslims were often regarded as the terrorists. Even if some students are UK born, they were also told to pack up and return to where they belonged. I feel that these children should not be bullied based on their races. It is really disappointing to know that students were not made better felt but sometimes even being ignored when they raise their issues of being bullied. I personally feel that racism should not carry on any further as it can affect someone emotionally and the consequences might not be what it seem as minor. Also, I feel that the bullies should put themselves in the victim’s shoes and spare a thought for their friend’s feelings. Everyone should be more sensitive towards this subject of racism and they should always think before making any remarks.

I feel that this is a real time event many would have encountered. I am saddened that this is happening in schools, not by adults, but by children, where those who are of different skin tone or sound different with an accent, would be isolated from the rest. The fact that it started with them learning the wrong things from their surroundings would also play a big part in their lives in the future.
