RACIST TORMENT IN CLASSROOM | Conflict And Prejudice Homework |
How racist bullying made 14-year old Khadeja Fahat's school life a 'daily torment'

Chong PyahPyah's insight:

I feel very annoyed at her classmates who bullied her, just because of her religion, her classmates considered her as a terrorist and she got mocked until she had no confidence left in her. What would you feel if you were mocked everyday you went to school?

Ann Tan's curator insight, July 16, 2014 10:32 AM

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.

Gaza civilians pay heavy price of conflict

Israel says it wants to eliminate the threat of Hamas but civilians are paying the heaviest price. As the Palestinians in Gaza observe Ramadan, they remain on lockdown for fear of being...
Chong PyahPyah's insight:

As citizen of this country, they do not deserve to be involved in this conflict and paying the heaviest price for it.And they should not be in constant danger as they did not do anything.Even the youngest in their family knows about the fighting. They should not be aware of the fighting as they are innocent.

Italy abandoning refugees to poverty and isolation, says report

Italy abandoning refugees to poverty and isolation, says report | Conflict And Prejudice Homework |
Council of Europe says African migrants granted asylum in Italy are being relegated to the margins of society and face racism...

Chong PyahPyah's insight:

African migrants came from Africa to Italy in hopes of a better life. Yet the Italy government do not care about them and leave them to their own fate and as it is a government's job to take care of its citizens, i feel sad for the Africans as they have been neglected and ignored

Teh Shi Yun's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:26 AM

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.

Ray Kang's curator insight, July 16, 2014 6:59 AM

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.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 2014 11:41 AM

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.
