Shiya Watanabe's insight:

This is a video i came across thanks to my friend, and i find it to be really helpful in helping me understand exactly why this israeli-palestine conflict is happening right now. Due to land disputes and racial discrimination, the palestinians are facing terror and living in constant fear as many of the innocent palestinians get killed and shot just because they are identified as "terrorists". It really appalls me as to how racism can displayed on such a large scale where millions of people get killed due to past conflicts. As of now people are getting brutally murdered right this second and this conflict is continually escalating. I hope the people could come to a just peace and stop killing people just to support a certain belief that is forced upon the country by its government etc.

Shiya Watanabe's insight:

The Israel-Palestine conflict comes from a long time ago, where deep seated hate continues to grow even until now. The ongoing struggle between Israelis and Palestinians that began in the mid-20th century pains me because seeing graphic images of innocent Palestinians getting brutally murdered really makes me wonder if all this conflict is worth it? This is the fifth major assault in nine years. When and how it will end is unclear, but here's what we know for certain: No good will come from this madness; there will be no winners; and when the dust settles and the tears dry, Palestinians and Israelis will be more embittered and will feel less secure.

Neely Fuller Jr - How Racism/White Supremacy Works

Neely Fuller Jr at the C.O.W.S..this one was recorded about 2 years ago. I found it so I thought to poste for ya'll.
Shiya Watanabe's insight:
White supremacy is the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially the black race, and should therefore dominate society. It is historically based, institutionally perpetuated system of exploitation and oppression of continents and nations by white peoples and nations of the european continent, for the purpose of maintaining and defending a system of wealth, power and privilege. There are no reasons or excuses for racism, its just wrong. Racism is ugly. It divides people into “us” and “them”, based on where we come from or the colour of our skin. And it happens when people feel that it’s okay to treat others badly as they go about their daily lives. And i think that is horrible, racism is a global issue that is pervasive in everyone's daily lives and i think everyone should play a part to stop this.
