This man right here Martin Luther King Jr. is the definition of a "King." He changed the world by his famous speeches. This picture explains that anyone can destroy racism with the power of their words.

What Would You Do? - A White Male Haircutter Faces Racism At A Black Barbershop! (Premiere) - YouTube

Well it looks like people finally got their wish and a white person is discriminated this time in a black barbershop where we normally see it the other way a...
Shahriyar Habib's insight:

This video (Uploaded by: mrduckbears24) explains the power of people, whether it be a good or bad. This video basically has people judging a white barber at essentially a 'Black Barber'. During the video people give opinions about the white barber, whether he should cut their hair or not. He faces racism at a barber shop. But the white barber, Ben is very experienced and certified, however most people won't choose him. This relates to racism in our community. This kind of racism could happen in our daily lives, we must use our words to create change.  The 'thing' that surprised me the most, it the power of words, and how they influence one another.

Excerpt from Luis Suarez's new book: "Call me a biter or a diver, but I'm not a racist" | Enko-football

Excerpt from Luis Suarez's new book: "Call me a biter or a diver, but I'm not a racist" | Enko-football | Insanity of Racism | Scoop.it

Shahriyar Habib's insight:

Luis Suarez a brilliant footballer, but when he spat out the wrong word at the wrong time his career will change forever. Suarez is one of commonly known footballers that are hated. He has had over a 100 fights, 100 rude comments, and a 100 of everything. But recently he has bit the Italian centerback(defender) Giorgio Chielinni, and all of a sudden he's banned from football for a good month. Suarez claims that he hasn't done anything racist, like said in the article "Call me a biter, or a diver, but I'm not racist." He just hasn't bit one person, he has bit at least three (one includes his own team mate), and he even said the word "Negro" towards Patrice Evra, a defender for Manchester United. Evra claims that Suarez was walking past him and quietly said the work "Negro." In the 57th minute Suarez goes in for a tackle on Evra, after Suarez got a yellow card, "bad" things came out of his mouth(at least on video),Is this what football has come to? In this article Suarez claims that all of the things that Evra said was false. As said in the article "It hurts because of how it affects me, it hurts because my wife had to suffer through the hearing too, watching me getting accused of being someone she knows I'm not, and it hurts because in the future the stain will still be there when my children grow up. It's a slur on my name that no-one can take away." Even if Suarez is telling the truth, there have been tons of Racist acts in football that the public is unaware of, Racism is still a problem. Suarez might be the best striker in the world, that still doesn't mean he has the power for racial abuse.

 

 

But the question still remains, when will racism truly be kicked out of football?-Enko Football

These statistics can prove that racism is alive and fresh. It explains how people's background is affecting their lives in U.S.A. The most important factor is that many suffer it to this very day. This relates to racism all around the world not just the community, people are showing 'supremacy' over other cultures.

Charts: How Much Danger Do We Face From Homegrown Jihadist Terrorists? | Insanity of Racism | Scoop.it
Since 9/11, successful domestic terror plots like the Boston Marathon bombing have been rare exceptions.

Shahriyar Habib's insight:

This is another example of Racism. These people should not worry about the dangers of terrorism, but rather the things that they are saying about Muslims. I agree that the 9/11 was a terrorist attack, 

but 21 Men did this, not an entire religion.

Smoothing your accent to make yourself better understood

Smoothing your accent to make yourself better understood | Insanity of Racism | Scoop.it

But there’s no question that strong language skills are key to workplace success. A survey conducted in 2009 by Compas Research, for example, found that language skills were the biggest gulf between Canadian employers and highly skilled immigrants who were looking for a job. The survey found that 87 per cent of senior executives said inadequate language skills in English and French stopped them from hiring foreign-trained professionals – but few of those newcomers thought their language skills were inadequate. Phani Radhakrishnan, who teaches human resources and courses such as diversity in the workplace at the University of Toronto Scarborough campus, has mixed feelings about accent-reduction services. “When I first came here, I tried to make my Indian accent more Canadian, because I wanted to feel accepted,” she said. “Everyone talks about multiculturalism here, but what happens in the backyard is different. But it’s a personal thing, and I felt I was losing a part of my identity. So now I go with my original accent and it gives me more self-confidence.” Roland Sintos Coloma, a professor at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies, finds the concept of reducing accents disturbing. “This speaks to a certain kind of linguistic racism,” Prof. Coloma said, adding that the idea of “making North American customers comfortable is silly, especially when you consider that there isn’t even a standard Canadian English accent. A person who lives in the Atlantic provinces will not sound the same as someone from the Prairies or Ontario,” he noted. But Randall Hansen, a Canada Research Chair in immigration and governance at the University of Toronto, said the tendency toward multiculturalism should be tempered with pragmatism. “It seems to me a kind of vacuous political correctness to suggest that acquiring a local accent won’t provide, in general terms, an advantage in the business world,” he said. “There is a lot of social-psychological research that has indicated when you speak the same language and have the same accent, that a person will assume … that you have a commonality.”

Shahriyar Habib's insight:

Check this out, although it's right in some ways, I personally believe that you don't need to change your accent to feel accepted. You should not need to adapt to a new accent just to receive love from others."Should you really?," why are people being forced to change their accent, when people can't accept their 'voice.' In general you should not need to change the way you speak,  if someone questions something your saying,i reply in a such a manner that he/she won't question you ever again.
