Karena Kwong's insight:

A white couple was being assaulted while strolling through the French Quarter by a black mob in New Orleans. This is perceived to be yet another act of violence instigated by racism. Racism is something that cannot be entirely inhibited but it can be suppressed as far as possible. I feel that one should not induce a blitzkrieg on innocent people and harm them. If this were to perpetuate, even more innocent people will be harmed and wounded. I think that the blacks could have been treated unfairly and thus induced anger and then violence. If so, justice should be served to these people and all races should be treated equally. Ensuring equal treatment among all races should be the top priority for now and the future.

Karena Kwong's insight:

Bangladesh migrants in Manolada, Southern Greece are frequently being exploited, treated with condescension and harrassed by the police as well as the people. Furthermore, the culmination of months of neglect and ill-treatment of thousands of migrant workers in Greece is an importunate issue that needs to be resolved. I feel utterly chafed upon reading about this situation. I reckon that the Greek Government should investigate on racist attacks happening in Greece and those responsible must be brought to justice and ensure that the Greek Police must uphold justice, treating everyone equally regardless of race. I strongly believe that it is essential for everyone to treat one another with respect and courtesy.

BDS South Africa condemns anti-Jewish song ::

"The board and staff of BDS South Africa condemn any and all incitement to violence and racism – including anti-Semitism and Zionism – even if it were to come from within our ranks," the group said in a statement.

 

"Given our history of work against racism, including anti-Semitism, we unequivocally distance ourselves from the singing of this song and its sentiments. Also, to tarnish all Jews with the Zionist brush is racism regardless of who does it. Racism is racism and racism is abominable."

 

The incident occurred on 28 August at Wits University in Johannesburg, at a protest organized and attended by members of Wits University Palestine Solidarity Committee, BDS South Africa, staff, students and members of the public.

 

The protest targeted a performance by Daniel Zamir, an Israeli musician, as well as racial profiling by the organizers of the concert itself, the South African Zionist Federation. 

 

 

 

 

Pro-Israel groups seized on the incident to discredit BDS South Africa and its allies.

 

The South African Jewish Board of Deputies claimed that the incident "unmistakably shows … that BDS SA’s real agenda is not to stand up for the Palestinian cause, but to incite hatred, and possibly even violence, against Jewish South Africans."

 

Avi Mayer, the social media director of Israel’s government-backed Jewish Agency, an organization that works against Palestinian rights, tweeted that "The #BDS’ers try very hard to hide their movement’s anti-Semitism from public view. But sometimes it seeps through."

Karena Kwong's insight:

Palestine solidarity activists in South Africa have condemned an incident in which several protestors sang a traditional struggle sung, replacing the lyric to "shoot the Jew." Regarding this matter, I feel convulsed with anger. It is absolutely very disrespectful and hurtful to incite racist remarks on traditional songs of a different country. The Palestines wanted to actuate apartheid between them and the Jewish South Africans. I believe that if the Palestines want to show their disapproval towards the Jewish, they should come face to face with them to talk to them instead of arousing more hurt and hatred. The priority now is to cease any more violence between the two races and in the future solve any disagreement to prevent the matter from exacerbating.
