MicroAggressions (Focus) + Not So Subtle
Some racism is so subtle that neither victim nor perpetrator may entirely understand what is going on—which may be especially toxic for affected people.

Citrine Tan's curator insight, July 13, 2014 7:15 AM

This article mainly focus on how racism and racial discrimination create conflicts and violence in the world. I feel that peaceful protestors should not be gunned down by the police just because they demonstrated against apartheid. It is being unfair and this will only stir up more hatred between one another as they are being shot down innocently since they are just voicing out their opinions and views as they have human rights. By moving to the world of social networking, the government can expect more of such conflicts of racisms as socialising is very common and people will just voice out their views which might eventually lead to more conflicts.

Foo Yan Ling's curator insight, July 13, 2014 10:13 AM

“Racism and racial discrimination have been used as weapons to engender fear and hatred. In extreme cases, ruthless leaders instigate prejudice to incite genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity,” said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in his message marking this year’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which focuses on the theme of racism and conflict.

 

Through this article I have read, I feel that racism is so insidious and pervasive. I learned how racism and racial discrimination can cause tensions among different groups of people and how it can deeply affect us whether politically, economically or socially. Racism undermines peace, security, justice and social progress. People are often enraged and aggravated by these acts of discrimination which results in instability within the country through riots, protests or wars. This thus causes a lack of peace and security in the country. “Racism is a violation of human rights that tears at individuals and rips apart the social fabric.” I agree with this statement as racism do bring about hatred which weakens the roots of a nation as a whole, furthermore, racism transforms people from simply disliking each other, to the permanent and indestructible foundation of common racism and prejudice. As stated, 55 per cent of violent conflicts between 2007 and 2009 had violations of minority rights or ethnic tensions at their core.

 

I feel that it is important to accept and appreciate others for who they are and simply not discriminate them by their skin color or their race. “Where societies have been shattered by conflict, the United Nations strives to promote peace processes and peace building that foster inclusion, dialogue, reconciliation and human rights,” It is seen that actions are taken to resolve these problems however what I feel is truly important is to have tolerance, a change of attitude, mutual understanding and respect for diversity.
