What sort of a world is this? Can anybody explain this, understand it?

How is it possible that this sort of treatment is still going on? Maybe it takes many generations before people’s thinking at the grass-root level is going to change for the better. I don’t know. I am very confused. I want to believe in the basic goodness of every human being. How then is it possible to treat your fellow human being like this?
