RACISM the new black in uncivil Malaysia?

Intelligently and nonchalantly phrased by my aunt just as we were about to head out to dinner, it's a wonder how one passing statement made a magnificent impression on me. Maybe it boggled me that in a world that takes pride in a postmodern state of mind, advanced technology and clothes that fall out of season within a month, it seems that humanity has not had a software upgrade in matters pertaining to race and respect.

Rotherham Update

What has gone wrong in Rotherham, and what is wrong with its Pakistani community, are questions much asked in recent weeks: How could this small, run-down town in northern England have been the center of sexual abuse of children on such an epic and horrifying scale? According to the official report published in August, there were an estimated 1,400 victims. And they were, in the main, poor and vulnerable white girls, while the great majority of perpetrators were men, mainly young men, from the town's Pakistani community.

Fall TV: ABC comedy a black-isha tackles cultural identity

The new ABC comedy “black-ish” partially came out of a conversation Anthony Anderson had with his son a couple of years ago. The actor-writer says that one day his then-12-year-old told him, “Dad, I don't feel black.” Taken aback, he let his son explain that his world was very different than the one in which Anderson grew up - “in the hood, in Compton.” “The existence that my son knows is nothing short of privilege, being in private school since the age of 4, and his surroundings in that environment is what he was referring to,” Anderson says.

The founder and former chief executive of a charter school in Fremont has been awarded $545,000 in damages by jurors who found that she had been fired in retaliation for complaining that she had been discriminated against. An Alameda County Superior Court jury ruled that board members at Families of Alameda for Multi-Cultural/Multi-Lingual Education Charter School, or FAME, created a hostile work environment for Maram Alaiwat, retaliated against her and breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing by preventing her from doing her job.

Alex Kane: Better Together campaign has let us down

Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of the Scottish referendum is the fact that just two years ago very few people - including senior members of the Scottish National Party - believed that it would be a nail-bitingly close finish. The general assumption was that there would be a 60-40 split in support for remaining within the United Kingdom, followed by greater powers being offered to the Scottish Parliament to fend off the possibility of a series of increasingly divisive and probably downright nasty referendums.
