This chart shows every person killed in the Israel-Palestine conflict ... | Conflicts due to racism | Scoop.it
It's no secret that the death tolls in the Israel-Palestine conflict are lopsided, with Palestinians far more likely to be killed than Israelis. But just how lopsided is driven home by looking at the month-to-month fatality statistics, ...
Peng Han Ho's insight:

Even though for both sides the situation at hand here is terrible, it is disgusting to even think that one would kill another merely because of him being of a different race. As the death tolls had proven. Palestinians are more likely to be killed than Israelis showing how much prejudice they have to deal with.

Watching the Lights Go Out: Racism in My Community?

Watching the Lights Go Out: Racism in My Community? | Conflicts due to racism | Scoop.it
As we have struggled with the issue of racism, there have been conflicts within the community that have become heated and, in my opinion, have been creating some potentially serious divisions. On the other hand, I believe ...
Peng Han Ho's insight:

I feel that this is a good step towards fighting racism, as most of the time racism is all the difference we see in each other, most of the time it is all in our minds, that we are different. In fact, all of us are the same and these  anti-racism training helps to stop racism itself therefore stopping conflicts caused by it.

Peng Han Ho's insight:

In sports, there should only be meritocracy and none of racism, but in this case, conflict has arose from simply the fact that a player is of a different colour. This brings the question of whether a fundamentally unsound society that is in Brazil, which still is largely racist, is fit to host this international sports event where people of different race, religion and culture come together to play a game.

i used to think that racial prejudice in sports would not lead to a serious problem

but now, i think racial prejudice will result in a really serious major problem that will even affect the country.

It is ironic how sports 

 

such as soccer and tournaments such as the world cup which is meant to unite people of different ethnicity and walks of life can result in so much hate a fine example would be this article where the Colombian player received astounding amounts of hate such as racial slurs after neymars injury thus proving how racism is a much more complex issue which need to be widely disscussed
