Eunice Tan Kai Xin's insight:

I believe that everyone should be treated equally regardless of their nationality. Ongoing maritime disputes should not result in the citizens of the countries involved being deprived of the right to dine at the restaurant. I am glad that the owner has removed the sign.

The owner of this chinese restaurant was so inconsiderate as to ban people of other races because he doesn't like them and it is somwhat implying them as a dog, and even after being forced to take this down he showed no remorse. i can't believe that a guy like that existed

I have only one word to describe the store owner, the one who put on this sign in their restaurant ----uncivilized. I wonder has the thought of that this sign board would actually agitate the people and tourist who is actually willing to pay money to dine in his restaurant ever occurred in his mind. No doubt, I am sure that this post sparked many outrage comments from people who saw this sign board.

Fried chicken and watermelon in school menu serves prejudice against blacks, says USF prof.

Fried chicken and watermelon in school menu serves prejudice against blacks, says USF prof. | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it

The menu may have been well-intentioned, University of San Francisco professor James Taylor explained, but ultimately honors prejudice against blacks.

 

“Chicken, watermelon, collard greens -- these stereotypes of black southern culture come from the same place that the N-word comes from,” he told NBC. “This is not like this food represents some heroic moment in African-American experience. What it represents is the degradation and the stereotyping of African-Americans.”

I feel that we should be more sensitive and respectful towards others of different races. An act like this, though it might actually be for a good purpose, may be hurting or even be a form of discrimination to them unknowingly.

I think that although the school was trying to celebrate the Black History Month, they should not include food that they think are what represents the black sourthern culture as this will upset many people who feel that they are being stereotyped and degraded. I feel that the school should just serve food as normal as this will not upset anyone.

Here we have another case of black stereotyping in the country where the word 'nigger' originated from. We have seen memes created based on a black guy's love for fried chicken, craving for watermelon but why not the white's love for getting obese? Because that's how the country goes. It may be alright to post jokes about such things on the net provided it does not hurt anybody but it's simply outrageous for a SCHOOL to do such a thing and teach the wrong things to the students!

Eunice Tan Kai Xin's insight:

I think that the Germans should be more tolerant towards the Islamists as majority of them do not have bad intentions. Also, the Islamists should not create violence in the country, so that the Germans' hostility and hatred towards Islam will be minimised.

I see that Germans are prejudiced against Muslims and their religion, Islam, because they feel that Muslims are violent people who often plan terrorist attacks in Germany and post a real threat to security. I think that Germans should not stereotype Muslims just because of some major terrorist attacks committed by a small group of Muslims. I wonder if Germans could openly address the issue and stop targeting the Muslims.
