Ethnic Conflict in Sub Saharan Africa: Parallels to US Racism? - racismreview.com | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
TweetRecent intercommunal conflicts in Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, DR Congo, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan and Zimbabwe bring to mind the role of a certain ethnocentrism or tribalism in conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa. …
Jing Yuan Cheong's insight:

After reading this article, I learnt that more and more people are becoming racist. In my opinion, they are probably influenced by the people around them. They could be influenced by a group of people such as a tribal group in Africa. Thus, their perspective of another race is changed. I think this type of act should stop as we ought to appreciate other religion and culture.

Anti-Muslim riots in Meikhtila, Myanmar on March 20-22 left many buildings destroyed and thousands of Rohingya people displaced. The conflict claimed ...
Jing Yuan Cheong's insight:

After reading this article, I have a deeper understanding about what racial and religious conflicts are happening in Asia, the continent where we are located at. It was unbelievable that these conflicts are happening near us, such as Indonesia, our neighboring country. From the article, I also learnt about the difficulty to maintain peace and social order in a country especially with so many races. People with different perspective might eventually lead to conflicts. These conflicts will then affect a country's economy and prosperity. Therefore, we are very fortunate as we are a racially harmonious society and I hope we will continue to prosper Singapore.

Israel-Palestine conflict reignited once again

Israel-Palestine conflict reignited once again | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
Both sides have used deadly force against one another and both sides have suffered civilian casualties. There is no clear solution for this complex issue, but it is clear that the use of rockets, instead of diplomacy, is not working. Justifying mass murder for the sake of religious preservation is unacceptable and both sides need to work on a peaceful solution.
Jing Yuan Cheong's insight:

After reading this article, I feel very sorrow for both countries as even after so many decades of fighting, they are still continuing the war. Through these years, so many lives are lost, yet, both parties are unwilling to stop the tragedy. Israel is still considered as a young nation, but it was expected that conflicts would happen. I hope both countries can agree to stop all the conflicts so that both countries can prosper.
