The Depressing Truth About Kids And Fat Prejudice | Racism and Xenophobia | Scoop.it
Fat prejudice isn't limited to the adults leading Abercrombie & Fitch and the tabloid industry. According to a new study out of the University of Leeds, children as young as four have internalized the idea that overweight means bad.

From this article, i can tell people all over the world have been sensitive about being obese. They are constantly worrying about how they look, how people will see them, how they dress etc. I believe many girls fear about getting judged and no doubt, people say we all live in a judgmental society. I felt ridiculous when a kid as young as 4 have the idea that being overweight means bad. Your appearance does not determine your personality and your attitude. It isn't all about being 'skinny' and 'in shape' as "Nobody's Perfect". I realized that people all over the globe has been trying to chase perfection. I strongly feel that they should stop and be comfortable with the way they look. I wonder what is keeping people from being satisfied with their body weight/ size. Will people continue to have that idea about being obese?

In this article, I can see that even kids are thinking that being fat is bad. This is due to many influences arround them like social media, influence from family and friends. I think that this prejudice should stop. People who are overweight are people too, they have feelings and they will feel hurt if someone were to tell them that being fat is bad. I wonder what will happen if this prejudice goes on.

Jaslyn Si Jia's curator insight, July 4, 2013 5:46 AM

From this article, I realized that not only adults but even young children of 4 to 7 years old are judging that being overweight is bad and that these overweight people are less likely to achieve a result in life, like, winning races etc., and that most children won't accept the friendship between themselves and a overweight child. Not only will prejudice act on others, but it will also act on themselves via the surrounding things that influences them. I feel that everyone shouldn't judge overweight people in the way most people are doing it, but instead they should accept these overweight people and not judge their appearance but their character. I wonder why people judge overweight people in this way and whether there are any plans to help people around the world to understand and stop these unfair judgments.

Racism Is No Excuse, Obama Tells Black Grads--He should take his own advice

Racism Is No Excuse, Obama Tells Black Grads--He should take his own advice | Racism and Xenophobia | Scoop.it
Obama delivered the commencement speech at the historically black, all-male Morehouse College today, encouraging graduates to use their education to help others in their communities, act as role models...

Perhaps if he'd take his own advice, and his followers would consider his character rather than his rhetoric and skin color, then perhaps he would step down or would have never been elected in the first place. Hopefully these graduates will strive to do better than him and stop expecting the color of their skin to get them where they want to be in life. I believe Obama is the first affirmative action president. He certainly didn't win because of his skills, abilities and past experiences. Many of us still no very little about his past, including his grades while he attended Harvard and Columbia as Obama has had them sealed. 

 

But, based on what we know of his past voting record as a Senator, he voted present on many controversial or difficult issues and since then he has left leadership decisions up to those below him so he can blame anyone else but himself. Based on this failed leadership style we have the scandals we have now emerging from this administration. However, as much as he likes to deny knowing anything that goes on below him...as the CEO of the US/or POTUS, he's responsible for what those below him are doing and he should be aware of what officials below him are doing. However, Obama claims to "know nothing''. 

 

Therefore, if Obama would take his own advice and would have tried to achieve his position based on his abilities and experience it is very doubtful he would be POTUS today.

I know that is a big joke...although he is complicit for knowing about it when he started there and not reporting it himself, but the real culprit is that Ingram lady and I'd say Holder and likely Obama and Valerie Jarrett. I don't think anything is done behind his back and Valerie Jarrett is the mastermind behind the mindless, empty chair POTUS
