As some Middle Eastern passengers began being removed from flights due to more controversial and fear, the inequality became greater.

A stereotype of Muslims is they are all violent. After 9/11 workers at the airport were very skeptical of Changez and they didn’t let him on the plane right away.

If that is not already a monstrous violation of the United States’ values, then the violation of the values of diversity and the common good would make it so. Racial discrimination shuns diversity and tries to take a targeted racial group down in many

From the announcement delivered by Malaysian ministers, uncertainties loomed among them. For example, the time and reason they lost contact with the Flight 370, what happened to the flight and so on which is still an unknown until now. It can be understood that Malaysia Airlines need their time to figure out what was happening on the plane but at the moment when they confirmed lost contact with the flight after it took off not more than one hour, Malaysia Airlines should have to release a press statement immediately.

It is true that society has come a long way in regards to racism, but it has not yet come far enough.
