Top 10 Most Racist Countries in the World - InfoBarrel

Top 10 Most Racist Countries in the World - InfoBarrel | Soceity & Culture | Scoop.it
As controversial as it may be, there are lots of misconstrued notions floating around on racism. Here is a top 10 list of the most racist countries actually based on something more than speculation.
Treathyl Fox's insight:
Since this article is dated 2013. Perhaps it's an impossible dream but I was just wondering if anything has changed in these countries and/or if other countries just added to the list in a re-ranking process.

Roughly half the countries around the world experience low fertility rates, and some get pretty creative in how they encourage procreation.

Deanna Wiist's curator insight, September 12, 2017 8:55 PM

While many countries have anti-natalist policies (policies to discourage more births), other countries with declining populations have pro-natalist policies in an attempt to increase fertility rates.  While not an exhaustive list, this list gives a few more examples that teachers can use to show how countries in stage 4 of the demographic transition are dealing with declining fertility rates.

Jordanian parliament repeals rape law

Jordanian parliament repeals rape law | Soceity & Culture | Scoop.it

"The Jordanian parliament voted on Tuesday to abolish a provision in the penal code that allows rapists to escape punishment if they marry their victims - a move that is being hailed as 'historic' by activists and locals. Article 308 permit[ed] pardoning rape perpetrators if they marry their victims and stay with them for at least three years.  The controversial provision has for decades divided Jordan between those who believe the law is necessary to protect women's 'honour', and others who see it as a violation of basic human rights."

This is major for womens' rights.

David G Tibbs's curator insight, March 22, 2018 12:54 PM
It's amazing how these laws can even exist in today's global society. The law itself is a violation of human rights by making someone who is harmed to before attached to the person that harmed them. It's also shocking some of the countries that have abolished similar laws only within the last 30 years. Countries like Italy, Romania, France, and Peru to name a few. This is not just a continuing issue in the middle east but also in areas in Latin America and in Asia. Hopefully, countries will follow suit, which will take a major change in culture and thought. It will also take a major amount of energy from the people in those countries to change these laws.
 
Katie Kershaw's curator insight, March 27, 2018 11:39 AM
The original reason that this law was put into practice was the most interesting part of the article.  The law stated that men who raped women would not be punished if they married their victim.  It was said that the law protected women from the stigma surrounding rape, especially if they became pregnant.  It’s hard to tell if lawmakers were genuinely concerned with women’s well-beings or if they were just looking for a way to prevent men from being punished and just disguising it as beneficial to women.  The law was in place for about 60 years and was approved to repeal by a very slim majority.  This is a step in making Jordan a more progressive country that respects human rights, however they are still far from having gender equality.  It was upsetting to me that I had never heard of this law before it was introduced to me in class because it shows that the U.S. and media don’t pay attention to such violations of human rights.  It was also crazy to me that it took until 2017 for the law to be repealed, but even more shocking that it was put into place just 60 years ago.  If I didn’t know the history of it, I would have assumed it was some ancient law.

Why Early Globalization Matters: Crash Course Big History #206

Globalization has been in process for centuries, and has had a huge effect on Big History, and on Collective Learning. This week, Emily is investigating early globalization through three things that moved around the world and shaped collective learning in the early decades of globalization: Printing, Potatoes, and Plagues.

Via Seth Dixon
Treathyl Fox's insight:
Printing, Potatoes, and Plagues.  Even without being an historian or watching the video, there is no doubt these 3 things had an impact on the whole wide world.

Want my thoughts on this? Have to read the article in more detail but just based on the article's title, this is my reaction. 220 million???!!! Where on God's green earth did they find 220 million undocumented white people? Are they just in America? Or are they all over the world and they are being “invited”?? Like I said. Have to read the article thoroughly. But the title sure caught my attention!! Anyway … November is Native American Heritage Month in the USA.

Interesting question posed at a blog I recently started following called Bibliophile Cafe. The question was or is: Why read Sade?  ...

Treathyl Fox's insight:
If we can't learn on our own how to to exercise discretion and judgment and discern the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, what's bad and what is not bad … well then, somebody else will take it upon themselves to do it for you. Would you rather you decide OR they decide?  As the comedian Lewis Black would likely say: “Don't think on it too hard or blood will shoot our your nose!”

The world's first ghetto, 500 years later

The world's first ghetto, 500 years later | Soceity & Culture | Scoop.it
The word "ghetto" is derived from a community in Venice, Italy, where Jewish people were forced to live five centuries ago.  

 

In preparation for the 500th anniversary of Italy's Venetian Ghetto, Ziyah Gafic scoured the 7-acre-wide part of the Cannaregio district where, for centuries, Jews were forced to live.  But all he found was an overwhelming silence -- an element that became central to the photographs he made there.


Via Seth Dixon
Treathyl Fox's insight:

No additional insight to add. except  ... Wondering that if such a community had never been established perhaps the world "ghetto" would not be in our vocabulary.
