i know, its sad to think that in this day in age there are still certain people with such negitive and narrow minded attitudes. Although I believe the majority of our societies believe in equality you will never ever get a single country in the world where there arent some people who hold prejudice and old school attitudes...wherever you go whether its sitting on a bus,in a bar, walking down the street anywhere in the world there will always be people who can be cruel and misinformed.its really sad
so smile and talk to every person you think gets discriminated against, when you get the chance. at least you'll show them there are some people that are out there for the good.
It's hard not to have racial discrimination isn't it? Though you may not discriminate, you can't stop others from doing so. The world will be a better place without discrimation.
seems like we are going back in time not forward!!
It's been happening here in australia too for as long as I can remember. Mostly under the surface discrimination and racism, but over the last couble of days the issue has been put at the top of the national agenda, following violent riots through the streets of Sydney.
I'm very sad to read such stories about discrimination and racism, especially because I've only been to Granada last week and thought what a cool city it was. It?s very arab-influenced and I had the feeling that foreigners, no matter what colour of skin they have, are welcome there. Pity you prove me wrong, but I really hope this terrible incident changes some attitudes!
It happens everywhere. In a restaurant at Sudderstreet in Kolkata an African tourist was refused to get in because of his colour. When other tourists complaint the waiter told them that black men are always asking for problems. And that in a country where majority is black (especially in Bihar en West-Bengal.....its a shame).....
Here in the Netherlands (known as quite tolerant) it also happens because Africans (especially Morrocans) are known for "problem-seakers". Its a shame and the fact that a little group is spoiling it for the good-ones should be understatement of the year....
Smile is the best medicine ,but sometimes people may not accept your smile just turn away then go away from those who does not appreciate your beautiful smile. Sometimes so hard to get a smile from somebody but they are time people giving smile so easyly, then may be friendship started with a smile.We should not practice discrimination to anybody .Thinks may be you are lucky to be born by a well to do family how about if you are born to a very poor family and not somewhere in well developed country....
I am spaniard (living in italy) and if that's true I feel ashamed.
Anyway... I consider my country very open-minded and that thing for sure was an exception of the rule. I think generally foreigners no matter what religion,colour, etc find theirselves pretty fine there.
