How can this be remidied? I believe these kinds of incidences are rooted in the animosity of the past 50 years of the Sudanese history. There is complete lack of trust in each other. A simple dispute can be blown out of proportion from both sides. This must end.
Once and agreemnt has been signed, it is a signal to all people that war is not and option in solving our problems anymore. It is time to try other avenues.
As the politicians and the UNAMIS say, "I urge the parties to exercise restrain . . ."

There are lots of South Sudanese in Egypt who go through the same abuse and racists taunts everyday. I once blogged about Egyptians are trying to woe the Southern Sudanese here. And last month Hosni Mubarak was in Juba, a visit that evryone knows was about the Nile water. I wonder what he will tell the South Sudanese if he read the story.
At least Muna spoke about it.
"The racism I saw on the Cairo Metro has an echo in the Arab world at large, where the suffering in Darfur goes ignored because its victims are black and because those who are creating the misery in Darfur are not Americans or Israelis and we only pay attention when America and Israel behave badly.
We love to cry "Islamophobia" when we talk about the way Muslim minorities are treated in the West and yet we never stop to consider how we treat minorities and the most vulnerable among us."

Amidst the corruption and waste of public money that goes into individual pockets, there is still a lot to be desired in the Government of Southern Sudan under the SPLM. I just hope they understand the meaning of the Obama success. People comes first before individual interests.
Will we as Southern Sudanese be able to get there? I want to shout YES WE CAN, but it is held in my throat, for now.
