Vietnam latest news - Thanh Nien Daily | China racism case: Restaurant owner removes 'racist' sign

Vietnam latest news - Thanh Nien Daily | China racism case: Restaurant owner removes 'racist' sign | Racism | Scoop.it

Tse Min's insight:

I have only one word to describe the store owner, the one who put on this sign in their restaurant ----uncivilized. I wonder has the thought of that this sign board would actually agitate the people and tourist who is actually willing to pay money to dine in his restaurant ever occurred in his mind. No doubt, I am sure that this post sparked many outrage comments from people who saw this sign board.

The owner of this chinese restaurant was so inconsiderate as to ban people of other races because he doesn't like them and it is somwhat implying them as a dog, and even after being forced to take this down he showed no remorse. i can't believe that a guy like that existed

Eunice Tan Kai Xin's curator insight, July 13, 2014 5:24 AM

I believe that everyone should be treated equally regardless of their nationality. Ongoing maritime disputes should not result in the citizens of the countries involved being deprived of the right to dine at the restaurant. I am glad that the owner has removed the sign.

15 Charts That Show The U.S. Isn't Over Racism

15 Charts That Show The U.S. Isn't Over Racism | Racism | Scoop.it
On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act was signed into law, officially banning discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. It also ended racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and in general public facilities.

Tse Min's insight:

If you clicked on the webpage to view the charts, there are actually so many examples shown visually that U.S. is NOT over racism. I strongly everyone deserves a seconds chance, whether you have crimminal record or not. But if we take a look at graph 13, the chances of a white-skinned men getting a job after being released from the jail is so much higher even after the the black-skinned men have voiced their minds.

Prejudice is an instinct and it is natural. Those in power benefit from prejudice such as white Americans, they might not want to change the society, and there is a lack of will. The world will never be fair to everybody.

After reading this article, I realised that even after we have claimed to be over Prejudice of any type, there is still some Prejudice going on around the world. This article shows us some examples of Racial Prejudice or Racism. It shows us how the Blacks and Hispanics are being treated unequally from the Whites. Even though 50 years ago, the Civil Rights Act was signed into law, officially banning discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, there is still some minor discrimination against this law. Some examples of the Whites being treated better includes the facts that Blacks and Hispanics attend poorer funded schools than the Whites. Also, Affluent Blacks live in poorer neighbourhoods compared to Working-Class Whites, the loss of different Racial Communities to the Great Recession was widely different and how employers are most likely to turn away job seekers if they are African American. I feel that it is outrageous to judge a person based on colour, race or religion. If the world is going to be so hypocritical, then what is the point of ever signing the Civil Rights Act into law? I think that once such a law has been implied, people (citizens) should take note of it and abide by it. This law has been implied to prevent any conflicts from occuring. However, if people are still being so hypocritical and judgemental, then conflicts would definitely be sparked. I feel that people should be aware of other people's feelings about major problems like this. It is important for us to take laws like this seriously. I feel that, as Singaporeans, we should be most aware of this as we are living in a multi-racial country with a constantly increasing number of foreigners. By taking situations like this seriously, we, as a nation, are preventing the spark of a possible conflict together.

Tse Min's insight:

Honestly, I was shocked when I saw this video. No one deserves to be told off like that!! If I was there, I could not care less and stood up for my morals; for what I think is right. What she said was simply awful. I am grateful to the person who took this video, because I am pretty sure that without this video, no action would be taken, and this act of racism would not have been known to the world. I think that this lady should pay others more respect and have more patience and try not to disgrace herself next time in public.

After watching this video i felt really angry at this lady as she not only made fun of the people around her calling them fat and that they cannot get girlfriend and insults like that, she also insulted an asian lady and mocked her way of talking. i feel that it was very rude and insulting to the lady as well as the other people she mocked. She shouldn't do such a thing as we are all human beings and she is no different, she should respect those around her as how the public respects her.

Everlyn Chia Yee Hui's curator insight, July 14, 2014 8:37 AM

This woman's behaviour is impossibly horrendous. I could not believe she just hurled words of Racism onto people like that. Her words not only involved hurting the other party but also insulting the party's country. I feel that such behaviour should not be tolerated in any country and I think that it is upright justice that she is paying for it.

Ying Ting's curator insight, July 15, 2014 8:25 AM

I am really disgusted at this lady's behavior, who gave her the right to insult chinese people like that.She even quarreled and mock her boyfriend saying that he can't even have a regular girlfriend.
