Also let's not have that conversation about how even in liberalism white people do speak over black/Latinx folks sometimes which causes problems y'all but apparently it's acceptable as long as they "Democrat" and agree with the hive mind cause they "good white people" lmao.
Welp. #generationy and #millennials, y'all not so tolerant now? You only not #transphobic, #misogynist, #racist, avoid #ethnic #discrimination, avoid critiquing valid #religions, non #ableist against disabled folx etc. as long as ppl agree 100% with the #liberal #hivemind 🤷

Superpower or 🤡? "Pakistan’s army & its Inter-Services Intelligence(ISI) play key role in Taliban offensive. Without logistical support from Pakistan, the Taliban would be hard-pressed to operate in such a widespread way". epaper.timesgroup.com/Olive/ODN/TheE…
2/usa Superpower or 🤡? "Of course, Pakistan has been the Taliban’s patron since its creation in the 1990s.
It is impossible to defeat the Taliban as long as Pakistan provides sanctuary and safety, training, equipment and funds for the Taliban."..3/
3/usa #Clownanalysis101 🤡 "Pakistan cannot be defeated, as it is a nuclear-armed State and has the fifth-largest population in world. ...It is curious that Biden has so little to engage with Pakistan. He has yet to talk with Imran Khan." ☝🏼superpower is going to fight #China?😭

#BritishEmpire is trending on twitter: and so is #BlackLivesMatter. We want to take this moment to raise awareness of the the nature Wales shares with the British Empire 1/
Both colonised and subject to colonisation, Wales has a radical potential for radical solidarity and decolonisation. We need decolonisation, desperately, and anti-colonisation, as colonialism in #Wales is not over, nor is colonialism undertaken by the #BritishEmpire 2/
Grassroots local change with the support of others can harness real tangible long-term change beyond tick-boxes, key performance indicators and unionist political parties (and non-unionist political parties who are complicit in institutional racism and anti-Blackness) 3/

#DidYouKnow that #Wales🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 is 6% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic? In 2011, this was 4%, and has grown by 2% over the past 9 years.
Over 50% of #Wales lives in or around Cardiff, Newport or Swansea...

#Cardiff is 20.6% #BAME
#Swansea is 10.8% #BAME
#Newport is 13.1% #BAME Image
We are a Welsh language speaking team of #PeopleofColour who have seen how conversations on race, ethnicity, and diversity are minimised because #Wales is "Only 4% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic".

The new #UN Special Rapporteur to #Myanmar to replace @YangheeLeeSKKU hasn't been identified yet but the successor has big shoes to fill. He/she will also need to convince Myanmar to allow visits within country & to cooperate, communicate again with the Special Rapporteur

Appears #Myanmar defacto leader #AungSanSuuKyi & team briefed key leaders like #Military Chief SG #MinAungHlaing & #President about #Rakhine #Rohingya situation, how #genocide accusations are false & how they intend to "defend/protect" nation's interests m.facebook.com/story.php?stor… ImageImageImageImage
Some #Myanmar defences likely to include 1) #Rakhine situation is complex 2) World has overlooked attacks by terrorists against #ethnic Rakhine citizens 3) #Military was defending nation's sovereignty & weeding out terrorists in brutal crackdown 4) Nation has own investigations ImageImageImageImage
Aside from #Myanmar #AungSanSuuKyi leading team to challenge @Gambia_MOJ over case at @CIJ_ICJ next month, you can expect her delegation to likely include Kyaw Tint Swe, minister in her office, who has represented her at the #UN & Minister Kyaw Tin, her Foreign Affairs deputy ImageImageImageImage
