Question:

In some societies of Northern Ireland, the colonies of Protestant andCatholic communities are divided by walls. These walls are sometimes filledwith graffiti as you can see here. The Irish Republican Army and British Government signed an agreement in 2005. What does the graffiti here tell about the conflict in the society?

Answer:

  • The graffiti tells us in how people used to be discriminated on the basis of colour and origin, the people used to hate Blacks and Irish. In 2005, in Belfast, racism has been prohibited and people treat each other’s equally without any prejudice.
  • It does not mean that social differences have been abolished. It means that people started accepting the differences in a peaceful manner.
