WeiJun's insight:

From this article, I can see that Indians are not comfortable in having neighbours who are foreigners and that a staggering 43 per cent of Indians say that they wouldn't want to live next to a neighbour of a different race. I think that they should be more accepting towards other races and not be prejudiced against them. After reading this article, my thoughts and feelings are that we are all human beings and we should accept one another regardless of race and differences, everyone is equal. We should be more thoughtful about other peoples' feelings.I wonder if people will start accepting one another in the near future and whether this problem on racism can be solved and that the world will be peaceful.

Teo J-lyn's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:31 AM

India is the world's second-most racist country after Jordan. I think that people should be more accepting towards other races,their languages as well as their religion and not be prejudice. It do not matter what colour we are, as we are all humans, and have blood flowing in us. I wonder if racism will continue and is the government going to do anything about it . Racism had also become a serious issue.

Seamus Ong's curator insight, July 5, 2013 8:55 AM

This is my insight using the see-think-wonder routine. From this article I can see that people are being judged by the colour of their skin, accent and other stuff. I see that most races are being judged based on what the minority from the race does like how some act or talk in public and based on that, other racial groups are under the impression that all people of that certain race is like that and they thus sterotype or generalise everyone belonging to that race. this article makes me think that racism is a big problem and one of the main causes of conflict in multienthnic societies like racial riots. I wonder if racism will ever stop.

Asha Begum's curator insight, July 6, 5:20 AM

Treating the Indians in this way is not right. White men should change their perception of Indian people. Racism should stop because it is not fair to be prejudiced.
