I think that this just shows the discrimination the black feels in the US. Even as children do they think that the white doll is better just because it is white and it has blue eyes, while the black doll is ugly because it is black. This shows how racist the people are among the blacks and whites. "Why is this white child smarter?" "Because she looks just like me." This kind of racism makes me feel angry as the whites feel superior just because they are white.

This shows the discrimination of the blacks in US. The white doll has blues eyes and being white, the children thinks that it is better and nicer as compared to the black doll. This video shows how the children are being racist to even a doll. In conclusion, in this video, white is somehow more higher class or more lovable.

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | Conflicts & Prejudice |
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.

Brandon Gopilan's insight:

In my opinion, what MNLA has done is just increase the racial tensions between the two parties that are disagreeing with each other. Easing up tensions between them should be a priority for this kind of prejudice as this may escalate to even more racial inequalities for the MNLA is creating conflict over an election.

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.


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.

Brandon Gopilan's insight:

Truly, this demonstrates that racism is a big issue around the world.

In my opinion, just because his skin colour was different from the normal Australians, doesn't mean he had to be denied any medical attention. He did not have to die just because he was from a different race. What the government should do is to create equality for all the Australians who even though they have different skin color or race.

Dawn Choo's curator insight, July 13, 2014 2:25 AM

I am very upset after reading this article about a son of a family suffering chest pain and being send to the hospital. However, due to his race, he was not receiving proper medical attention and was left to die. I believe that every hospital is supposed to treat all their patients equally regardless of their race. 

Chan Kin Leong's curator insight, July 13, 2014 6:17 AM

After reading this article, I have finally seen how racism affects innocent people. Some people even lost their lives due to racial prejudice as shown in the article. In my opinion, I think that what the paramedics had done is very unforgivable as what they had done has cost an innocent life being lost. They should not reject giving the boy necessary medical attention and treatment just because the boy is of different race or skin colour. I think that people should be treated equally and fairly in every country, despite their race, belief and religion. If this is achieved, I believe everyone would live happily and racial conflicts would be prevented.

Ng E-Lin's curator insight, July 13, 2014 9:38 AM

I felt very that the poor decease was mistreated. Despite the decease's call for help, being in pain, his efforts were in vain as the ambulance officer refused to send him to the hospital even stating that the decease was perfectly fine and even healthier than himself. The decease eventually died due to the ambulance officer neglecting his needs of medical attention. Even though the decease clearly needed the medical treatment at the very beginning, he did not receive any, primarily because of his race. When in comes to health everyone should receive the treatment they need. Everyone should be treated equally regardless of race, if not people all around the world will have their health or even life at stake.
