Italy abandoning refugees to poverty and isolation, says report

Council of Europe says African migrants granted asylum in Italy are being relegated to the margins of society and face racism...

Via ASGI, Ang Marcus
Teh Shi Yun's insight:

The Italian government did not have a proper planning for the African refugees, this shows how the government has shown very little interest in helping the African refugees. The African refugees were wrong thinking that they would lead a better and more comfortable life in Italy. Due to the neglection of the society which is an act of racism, they were unable to even have basic necessities which might be as bad or even worse than where they came from. The government should treat everyone fairly in the country since the country has already accepted the African refugees as part of them.

The Africans migrant came to Italy in hope of having a better but the Italy government did not even care about them and just left them on their own without helping them.

As stated in the article, the African people have risked their lives searching for the refuges, I think it is basic human right to have a proper place to live in and receive education so that they can be self-reliant. The Italian government should take the responsibility to take care of its own people.

I strongly feel that it is an act of racism for Italy to not helping the people in Africa. In my perspective, I strongly believe that everyone should be treated equally as well as lend a helping hand to others regardless of race and religion. The government of Italy should teach its citizens to treat anyone regardless of which race or religion.

RACIST TORMENT IN CLASSROOM

How racist bullying made 14-year old Khadeja Fahat's school life a 'daily torment'

Via Justin Gjerazi, Daryl Koh, Pei Ming Seah
Teh Shi Yun's insight:

Having prejudice on someone that comes from a country where there were many terrorist is a cruel and unrightful act. Khadeja Fahat is one of many students that had to suffer from the acts of racism in her school. I felt very sorry towards her as she is just a innocent teenager and could not cope with such harsh comments and bullying moreover, she herself is not a terrorist and does not deserve such humiliation and torture from others. People should not stereotype anyone coming from the same country as a terrorists. The school should have taken action in this matter, not doing anything shows that it supports the unrightful act of racism.

After reading this article, I pitied this girl. She suffered so much just because she 'wore a headscarf'. From a happy girl who smiled everyday, to dreading to go to school because she will be bullied and tortured, isolating herself from others, and eventually affected her health too. Imagine having no friends at all, with no one to talk to, but get insulting remarks, how would one feel? Those hurtful words musy have impacted her alot, causing her too lose her appetite too.  Also, I'm surprised that the teachers do not know how to deal with this situation. It is important for the school to educate the students on the effects on racism to prevent future conflicts and prejudice. 

Natasha Ho's curator insight, July 18, 2014 10:45 AM

Since young, many have faced racist Islamaphobic abuse and I think that this is a relatively serious issue. As we can see from this article that Khadeja have suffered mentally because of all the thoughtless remarks passed by her classmates. This issue is so serious that she fears going to school as she is worried of the comments that she might face whenever she steps into school. Also, from this article we can tell that young people can pick up racist behaviour from parents or friends. I feel that the root of this problem comes from people who are insensitive towards this subject. Is it because they have not been caught in this situation? Like what the article mentioned, I think that by educating the younger generation against racism, it can help prevent all these problems from happening.

Great example of how 9/11 affected the treatment of Muslims.

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.

Via Afrikasources, Ang Marcus
Teh Shi Yun's insight:

I think that the members of the Tuareg National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad is going overboard by attacking the "black" people to chase them out of the district. The Bamako political class should not be discriminated in such a way just because of their skin colour. The members of the Tuareg National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad were being very selfish and thoughtless by doing such an act. They should put themselves in the shoes of the Bamako political class as all of them are humans regardless of their skin colour and everyone should be treated fairly. Acts of racial harmony should be promoted in the country by the government and not holding an election which would make the matter worse.

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.

 

Ong Meng Kiat's curator insight, July 17, 2014 9:55 AM

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.
