I think so, when we consider the outcomes of it – ethnic or racial patronage, economic rewards that accrue to citizens based on tribal or ethnic and racial affiliations, and the violence that one race/ethnic group/tribe visits on the ...
Goh Chang Yun's insight:

Racism is sometimes one of the spark and fuel of conflicts as it causes conflicts to arise, and continues to let it happen as the prejudice grows. Racism is something we should take caution against and solve the problem, as one grave mistake carries on for a very long time.

Respect: Israel's Assault on Gaza Obscures Core Issues: Racism ... | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
Despite its potential for getting out of the control of the protagonists, and despite the psychological impact of the rocket attacks on Israelis, this conflict has certain advantages for the Israeli government.
Goh Chang Yun's insight:

It is saddening to see people live in fear constantly, i believe that if some incidents did not happen, it would not have sparked this whole assault. There could be a way to prevent this if an agreement was signed earlier. Returning the peace that everyone is entitled to.

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
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.

Goh Chang Yun's insight:

Racism brings about conflicts if an incident occurs affecting two races, each of their perspective of the situation may be different from the other party leading to further clashes. All of this brings instability to a country and it should be resolved.

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.

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.
