I feel sympathised with those suffering due to their dark- skinned colour. The writer thought he could get over with it as time goes by, when he was old enough to see another side of the country, where he is met with people of different races(colours). After awhile, he was still haunted with the same fact. I do not understand why they are discriminated because of their colour, and it is saddening that they have to live in fear, or feel hopeless. The people living in poverty are mostly blacks and people refuse to help them, it is torturous for them. Not being able to lead the way others can and looked upon differently compared to the rest, is not a pleasant thing to me. It is hurtful to even see the society this way, there seems to be no end for this racism to stop.

I feel that there should be mutual respect for the different religion and races. People have different cultures but there is no need for riots to take place that causes destruction in the country, innocent lives were lost. I do not agree with the monk that provoked this whole issue and stop buddhists from purchasing from the muslims. I strongly believe that each and everyone of us has our own rights to decide what is right or wrong, stopping buddhists to purchase from the muslims so to not destroy their race and religion is unnecessary to me. There is a higher percentage of buddhists than muslims and i do not see how are muslims a threat to the buddhists. I agree that the logic of religious and racial discrimination inherited from the colonialists should stop spreading in order to put conflicts and violence to an end.

I felt that it was unreasonable that the blacks can only eat vanilla ice cream on independence day. Although as said in the article it was not bad after all, i do not understand the fact that a law was passed for just an ice cream. But looking from another perspective, this creates a deeper psychological thinking on racism. This allows me to find out that in certain parts of the world, this is taking place. Not just the remarks made by the people, even their daily lives are affected.
