Racist man on the London Underground

A racist man on the London unground starts shouting abusive and racist remarks at Japanese passenger then threatens to kill other passenger on train.

Ishwer Singh's insight:

This man is angry with the japanesepassenger as his family member was killed by japanese. i find this extremely unfair for the japanese passenger..he cant blame the japanese passenger just because the person who killed his family memebr is of the same origin as the passenger.this man also starts to threaten to kill other passengers on board. i think that this man needs to learn some self control as if he says the wrong thing to the wrong person, matter will escalate very quickly.

In my opinion, prejudice of race may start when parents' share their views on the past conflicts and wars with their children when they mention negative things about their enemies, which will influence their children's mind set. I think that this may be what had happened to this man in video. Maybe, his parents had told him many bad things about the Japanese which thus, resulted in him to hate all Japanese and to always discriminate and blame his uncle's death on them.

Well, this is pretty ridiculous and stupid but i guess the guy was high or drunk or something so he probably wasn't thinking straight. I'm glad that at least someone stood up for this bullshit and defended the fellow japanese.This guy should honestly be put on counselling or something because this behaviour in public is unacceptable.Even if there was a conflict back in the days, the japanese people now have nothing to blame as it is their ancestors and not them who made those decisions.

I have read some of the comments under this youtube vedio and to my delight, I found that this phenomenon is widely condemned by the people, this shows that racism is has become a minority. The idea of anti-racism is well-received by most of the people. I believe that the issue of racism will vanish if we continue to follow this trend.

Ishwer Singh's insight:

I think that this judge has no self control and has no empathy for others. she openly made racist comments about a chinese contestant knowingly on national television. is this what we want our future generations to become? She as an adult has to serve as a role model and cannot afford to make such immature comments about anyone, no matter what race or religion the person is.

I strongly believe that it is very irresponsible for an adult to make a racist joke or racist comment about someone, especially on international television. Even though it may be a joke to him/her, it may be very hurtful for the one on the receiving end. Such comments or racist joke could even spark off riots and conflicts in many countries.

Racism In America: Old White Man Tells Black Woman To Move To The Back Of The Bus (Video)

Racism In America: Old White Man Tells Black Woman To Move To The Back Of The Bus (Video) | Conflict and prejudice | Scoop.it
Hoses and lynching may be no more, but this video taken on a New York bus shows that shameless racism is still alive and well.

Ishwer Singh's insight:

This man  obviously thinks that racism is still tolertaed today. but its not. its no longer the 1900s where racism is tolerated. his prejudice to african americans is despicable and he should be punished. he is supposed to be a role model for children and teenagers alike but he is incapable of carrying that role due to his racism.

i feel that racism towards people,be it black or white,is the thing of the past.Racism should not be left unpunished as the world has come a long way to erradicate racism.I also feel that these people should keep their comments to themselves as it will anger others.This was also unnessarcy conflicts between people.
