Dawn Choo's insight:

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. 

Jocelin Ting's curator insight, July 13, 2014 2:15 AM

I think it's really unforgivable for the paramedics to neglect the man when he was in pain just because of his race. As a paramedic, it's his job to bring the victim to the hospital. And it's the job of a doctor to say if he is in good state or not. Not for the paramedic to take things into his hands and insist that the victim is fine and need not be sent to the hospital. I feel really sorry for the victim and his family members. If he was sent to the hospital and was given help on time, he might have been alive. But because of the paramedic's prejudice towards someone of a different race, he lost his life. And I feel that what he did was really something that should not be let off by the law.

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.

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.

A Warrington mosque has had a number of windows smashed by two men who were "shouting racist abuse", police said. Officers were called to Jamiat Ul-Mulemeen Mosque on Arpley Street on Monday during...

Dawn Choo's insight:

I think that those two man had been treated unfairly because of their race. Thus, they decided to smashed the windows of the Mosque to vent their anger. In my opinion, i think that there is need to stop categorizing people as 'white' people and 'black people and that we should not  judge people by their race so that such incidents will not happen again.

Travis Lim's curator insight, July 13, 2014 4:27 AM

This all reminds us of the racist events that take place everyday. There is always tensions between one race and the other, but abusing and shouting racist remarks should not be the case. We should just keep all our nasty remarks to ourselves and not to make negative remarks to another race, because tensions may rise, and a fight or a war may happen

Huang Ziqian's curator insight, July 13, 2014 11:54 AM

When a group of people share the same feelings towards a particular group and they take action to express their feelings. At first, the particular group would get angry, then hatred would start growing between these groups. Racist attack would not solve any problem but hurt innocent people.

Dong Yutong's curator insight, July 16, 2014 5:44 AM

Almost all conflicts started because of 'unjust'. Grouping people according to their race and religion and nationality. And the most common one is racism. If each of them, could put in the effort  giving just a bit more understanding to the other group that they know little of, then these incidents could be simply avoid.

Racist bullying: Far-right agenda on immigration ‘being taken into classrooms’

Racist bullying: Far-right agenda on immigration ‘being taken into classrooms’ | conflicts based on racism |
The number of children seeking help for racist bullying increased sharply last year, as campaigners warn that the heated public debate about immigration is souring race relations in the classroom.

Via Leicester Worker
Dawn Choo's insight:

Cases of racist bullying has been increasing. Everyday, more and more children are becoming victims of racist bullying. This kind of bullying seems to be happening much more at school and on the way to school than on social media. Put yourself in their shoes, imagine yourself being called a 'terrorist' or 'bomber' and you will understand how sad they are. Fortunately, many campaigns are willing to help out those children. I hope that people will learn to understand their feelings.

Ray Kang's curator insight, July 16, 2014 6:58 AM

According to the article, immigrant students are being bullied and teased. I feel so sorry for these students as they need to bear such suffering at a young age. I think this is not only the local children's problem, but is also their parents' problem as their actions have influence their children. I think in order to solve this problem, community should take part to educate not only the children but also the adults to be role model to be friendly towards the foreigners.

Natasha Ho's curator insight, July 18, 2014 10:47 AM

From this article, I can tell that those who have been bullied because of their races have been affected and impacted very negatively. The students who were muslims were often regarded as the terrorists. Even if some students are UK born, they were also told to pack up and return to where they belonged. I feel that these children should not be bullied based on their races. It is really disappointing to know that students were not made better felt but sometimes even being ignored when they raise their issues of being bullied. I personally feel that racism should not carry on any further as it can affect someone emotionally and the consequences might not be what it seem as minor. Also, I feel that the bullies should put themselves in the victim’s shoes and spare a thought for their friend’s feelings. Everyone should be more sensitive towards this subject of racism and they should always think before making any remarks. 

Aqil Norazali's curator insight, July 12, 2016 5:43 PM
I feel that this is a real time event many would have encountered. I am saddened that this is happening in schools, not by adults, but by children, where those who are of different skin tone or sound different with an accent, would be isolated from the rest. The fact that it started with them learning the wrong things from their surroundings would also play a big part in their lives in the future.
