Jewish woman says racism to blame for her removal from plane

Rosenberg said she never said anything negative about Palestinians and was only complimenting Israel on how leaders there have handled this latest conflict.

Keith Lee's insight:

Dr Rosenberg was kicked off from a plane because of a passenger complaining she was a Jew. She has said nothing offensive, but the passenger complained that Dr Rosenberg made her feel uncomfortable. I feel that she should not be kicked out form a plane just because she is a Jew. JetBlue should listen to both sides of the story and come with a conclusion and not just conclude the incident solely based on the passenger's complain.

Jesslyn Tan's curator insight, July 11, 2014 11:50 PM

After reading ths article, I think that what has sparked this conflict was what the Jewish woman said to her friend through her phone. She told her friend about the violence in Isreal and this was all that caused the argument between her and the Palestinian. Some comments made about violence, especially due to racism, are very sensitive. Therefore, before saying something about conflict due to racism, no matter where we are, we should always be careful and think before we make the comment, as we will not know if someone around us is sensitive to the comment and end up creating conflict.

From fans in blackface to Twitter memes showing Colombians snorting field chalk, the 2014 World Cup is fertile ground for racial shittiness.

Keith Lee's insight:

Germans rooting for Ghana paint their faces black with make up and wear afro-wigs. This portrayal has offended some Ghana fans as well some has expressed that they should not be portrayed as caricature.  To me, painting faces black to mimic your favourite team, ridiculing them at the same time meaning to support them, is not right.

In my opinion, what i find most appalling is that these acts are being committed by grown adults, fully aware of the grievous hurt they can cause to members of the receiving party. Not only are they disrespecting the beautiful game on the biggest stage on earth, they do not seem to be displaying the slightest bit of remorse.

Joel Lim's curator insight, July 13, 2014 11:48 AM

From this article, I felt very disgusted by the adults' behavior, they should all know fully well that doing this kind of act will definitely hurt the black people but they still continue to do so. If they were treated the same way they treat the black people, wouldn't they feel sad and hurt too?

EXCLUSIVE: Racist death threats sent to Juan Zuniga after Neymar ... | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
THE Colombian defender who ended Brazilian star Neymar's World Cup has received a string of racist death threats.

Keith Lee's insight:

with Juan Zuniga fracturing Neymar's back, strings of hateful racist death threats came directing at Juan. Regardless of the incident being accidental or intentional, i feel that racist comments and remarks are not necessary, not just for this case but for any situation as well. Was his race to be blamed for injuring Neymar? The answer may not obvious to some. So it is sad to see racism still happening today.
