Bangladesh Just Banned Marriages For This Muslim Minority Group

Bangladesh Just Banned Marriages For This Muslim Minority Group | Conflict and Prejudice |
Bangladesh law minister Syed Anisul Haque announced on Thursday that the country would cease officiating marriages for Rohingya Muslims, an ethnic minority group that has been displaced from Myanmar due to persecution.

The marriage ban affects Roh...
Joey Tan's insight:

After reading this article, I could understand the seriousness of racism discrimination and prejudice. The Rohingya Muslims are unable to marry the Bangladeshi nationals just because the government banned it due to them being most persecuted minority groups in the world. The Rohingya Muslims are unable to obtain citizenship and passports, hence, unable to have a proper job to earn a living. They have to live in poverty without any country's help. Personally, I sincerely sympathize them. They required help but no one is willing to lend a helping hand to them just because of their racial groups. I feel that the U.N should at least provide them with their basic necessities and live no one living and dying in poverty just because of prejudice.

Joey Tan's insight:

Prejudice could be felt upon reading this article. I personally feel that the Italy government should at least provide proper necessities for those refugees from Africa.  I think it is a logical and deserving for the refugees as they risked their life to enter the country to have a better living. It will definitely be saddening for the refugees as they are not treated well upon their arrival to Italy, which might not be what they are expecting for before they come. Hence, I feel that Italy government should start doing actions.

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.

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.

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | Conflict and Prejudice |
We tend to underrate the importance of racism as a factor in the ongoing crisis in Mali. A short item from Radio France Internationale–English is a good reminder.

Joey Tan's insight:

Racism is a form of prejudice directed against someone or a group of people of other races based on their various features. In this article, I can see that this kind of prejudice is occurring and is eventually breaking out as conflict. I personally feel that Mali citizens should learn to accept other races or religion groups. If everyone does so, I am certain that Mali will be a multi-racial country where different groups of people will help each other when they are in need. The skin colour of one does not matter much, it is only the internal side of one that matters the most. 

Ann Tan's curator insight, July 16, 2014 10:57 AM

Racism is one of the main cause to prejudice. I think that what MNLA is doing is wrong, they are bias towards the 'whites' which would raise the racial tension among the Africans. I think that fair and equally treatment among the Africans is very important. This is to bring harmony among them. I strongly think that the skin colour does not matter, and that they should learn to accept one another. I believe that without racism, it would resolve many conflicts and prejudices happening around the world.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 2014 11:02 AM

Racism is actually a belief that inherent differences among the various human races that determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. I strongly think that Mali should treat everyone in their country equally regardless of race or colour. Most human conflicts are caused mainly due the race factor which creates destruction and many social problems. In my perspective, I think that no one should judge anyone by looking at the colour of their skin tone or their race. It is who they really are that matters.


Ong Meng Kiat's curator insight, July 17, 2014 9:55 AM

This is a saddening story to see that discrimination is still so prevalent. Mali should learn to see everyone as the same kind, so that everyone can be happy and advance as a country at the same pace. It would do not good if we are fighting a "civil war" in our country as no one will stand to gain. Easing up tensions in Mali and having peace is the best remedy.
