Racism in Texas,USA

Last night my best friend said that in USA Racism is not so acute so I hacked this video from a Federal site(US Govt. owned website) just to prove that she is wrong its really acute and sometimes lethal.
The whites are still discriminate Blacks as the weaker race.
Shame to this so-called most civilized race

Learn While You Laugh

The following scene took place on a British Airways flight between

Johannesburg and London.

This is a true story.

A White woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a Black man.
Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess.

"Madam, what is the matter," the Hostess asked.

"You obviously do not see it then?" she responded.

"You placed me next to a Black man.

I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group.

Give me an alternative seat."

"Be calm please, " the Hostess replied.

"Almost all the places on this flight are taken.

I will go to see if another seat is available."

The Hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later.

"Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the Economy class.

I spoke to the Captain and he informed me that there is also no seats in the Business class.

All the same, we still have one seat in the First class."

Before the woman could say anything, the Hostess continued:

"It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the Economy class to sit in the First class.

However, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting."

She turned to the Black guy, and said,

"Therefore, Sir,if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First class."

At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.

Guys Racism is another sort of curse on humanity as it differs mankind so please raise your voice against it.

Ugliest Face of Civilisation

President Bush is making an historic visit to Vietnam this weekend. While the agenda is crowded with discussion of trade, North Korea, Iraq, the War Against Terror and other issues, American Human Rights activists are pressing for the United States to make stronger statements about Vietnam's record on human rights.

Vietnam has many problems and one of the more serious for me is the exploitation of hundreds of thousands of poor women every year. Known for their extreme beauty and because in the Vietnamese culture the women are taught to care for the men, young Vietnamese women are prized wives.

Men from mostly Korea and Taiwan (but certainly many other nations) pay fees to join associations which bring them to Vietnam to find such "wives." A Korean or Taiwanese man may meet as many as 300 young Vietnamese women in a day while visiting Vietnam.

He is interviewing them so that he can find a "wife." The time he takes for his decision may be only an elapsed few minutes. He pays a heavy toll to leave Vietnam with his "wife."

The women are motivated by the hope of finding a better life – but this often doesn't happen.

Often the men lie about their income, careers, families and social standing to make themselves look more attractive. Once they get their Vietnamese "wives" back to Korea or Taiwan, they confiscate the young woman's passport, abuse her, force her into sex and generally treat these women with distain.

This situation of dealing in human trafficking is among the ugliest of human rights abuses. Added to the misery the Whites mostly Americans, Canadians are showing their interest in this trade and pulling Vietnamese girls into direct prostitution, the slave trade and child labour are also the by-product of Human Trafficking.

Poverty Comes to an End - A Fallacy

Corruption, conflict, high deficits and a growing gap between the rich and poor are some of the major constraints to boosting economic growth in the South Asia region, according to a new World Bank report released today..

However the report, Economic Growth in South Asia, says while the challenges facing the region are daunting, it is possible South Asia could see poverty rates cut by two thirds in a decade.

Shantayanan Devarajan, World Bank Chief Economist for the region and co-author of the report, says growth rates in South Asia have been accelerating in the last 10 to 15 years.

” South Asia as a whole has been enjoying about five to six percent growth with some countries like India and Pakistan growing over seven percent in the last two years,” Devaranjan says.

“If this growth can be sustained and accelerated, South Asia - which is the region with the largest concentration of poor people in the world - has a significant chance of bringing poverty down to single digits in a decade.”

But I think before make any assumption we should stop Human Trafficking.

The worst ever curse of our society in recent past is human trafficking. Poverty stricken masses are being provoked by some rich insane and let their life to be sucked by riches.

The third world countries specially Bangladesh, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda are the mostly affected countries.

This human trafficking leads poors to the Slave Trade. So guys please pull your arms out to combat the Human Traffickers to offer a Less Starving World to our next generation.
