Being a full time student, you always look forward for a break where you can refresh and restart.
One of my greatest passions is travelling and exploring God's magnificent canvas.

So my two girlfriends and I agreed that this Chinese Golden Week, we will refresh by travelling to Thailand.
After a lot of hard working, between our demanding classes we managed to save enough for the trip.

So on October 02, 2019, two of my girl friends and I left Shanghai, China were we are studying for a vacation in Thailand.
Our flight was scheduled to leave at 1345hrs but it was delayed until 1655hrs which had us land at Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi airport at 2000hrs.

Inside hate groups on Facebook, police officers trade racist memes, conspiracy theories and Islamophobia | Reveal revealnews.org/article/inside…
The groups cover a range of extremist ideologies. Some present themselves publicly as being dedicated to benign historical discussion of the Confederacy, but are replete with racism inside.
Some trade in anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant memes. Some are openly Islamophobic. And almost 150 of the officers we found are involved with violent anti-government groups such as the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters.

Hey @joerogan- you gonna bring this up on your show since you’re so against cancel culture on the left?
BTW - I helped get Andrew Anglin’s You Tube account DELETED by networking thousands people to report him.
He attacked my friend Heather after she was murdered. He smeared her like the sociopath is.
And if anyone has a problem with that - then too bad.

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

I'm old. I remember this stuff.

How It Used To Be

It took three minutes for the TV to warm up.

Nobody owned a purebred dog.
A quarter was a decent allowance & made with real silver.

You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny - made with real copper. (I still do...giggle).
Your Mom wore stockings that came in two pieces - one for each leg.

You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked & gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time.

You didn't pay for air & you got trading stamps, too.
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box.

And don't forget Crackerjacks! A prize in every box.

Teachers threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and they did it.

When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car.

People "went steady."

How Teachers Are Fighting the #WhiteNationalists Brainwashing Their Students vice.com/en_us/article/…
German government officials have called for an investigation into @YouTube for allowing right-wing groups to use the Internet platform for disseminating #neoNazi material.
It used to be much easier to spot a budding #Nazi in the classroom, or at least a student harboring #extremist views, says Nora Flanagan, a Chicago public school teacher for 20+y.

You’d just look out for the troubled skinhead kid, maybe wearing steel-toed boots & a swastika pin.

THREAD: It’s true. I’ve been running the @GroupBABEL Twitter account for way too long & no one gives a damn. Not to mention that I no longer want to be associated with this group since they attended @KzooICMS 2019 even though Medievalists of Color were iced out. #MedievalTwitter
To be super-frank, I’ve been (heart)sick because of @GroupBABEL’s inattention to divisive issues in the field ever since 2016 when I urged boycotting the Kalamazoo Congress after Allen Frantzen’s misogynist & racist writings came to light, to no avail. I haven’t been back since.
I spent a lot of time in 2016 ranting about Frantzen’s misogyny & racism (& theft of junior colleagues’ work) & also wrote letters to every learned society begging them to censure him, to no avail. But thank you @JonathanHsy, Suzanne Akbari & @muellerale for helping me with that.

The perpetual, persistent, pinning of #racism on #Republicans, #conservatives, and #Trumpsupporters comes from an insufferably #racist #Left.

Proof?

Old or new?
How about @BernieSanders? Aborting the third world to address #climatechange.

How about @barackobama? Telling the third world they can't have air conditioning, can't have single family homes?
How about @PPFA setting up shop for the #abortionmills in and adjacent to #communitiesofcolor?

How about #RBG justifying Roe because of "concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of."

1. In an employment tribunal in 2012 between Claimant Mr R Fraser and Respondent, the University and College Union, Mr Fraser charged the Respondents with ‘institutional anti-Semitism’ which, he said, constituted harassment of him as a Jew.#RFraser #Antisemitism
2. The Judge was AM Snelson, R Fraser was represented by Mr Anthony Julius of Mishcon de Reya, solicitors and Antony White QC represented the defendants. It can be viewed here HT @dascott66 judiciary.uk/wp-content/upl… #AMSnelson #RFraser #AntonyWhite #AnthonyJulius #MishconDeReya
@dascott66 3. The Judge was clear that John Mann was hostile and came up with little to no evidence of anti- semitic actions. #JohnMann #AntisemiticSlurs #AntiSemitismCzar

1) There is never a minute of peace, when it comes down to copping Threats, Racist Abuse, & bullying from #Serco employees in Arbitrary Detention.

The compound i'm currently in, is made up of extremely medically unwell detainees, elderly, depressed, disabled, suicidal etc.
2) The detainees brought to the attention that they are absolutely terrified of an extremely Racist Serco Bully named: 'Bruce'. A middle aged white man, who works as "Welfare & Engagement Officer". He would regularly subject detainees to Racist Abuse, & derogatory racial slurs.
Annexure 1: A different #Serco guard abusing & using #Homophobic slurs against elderly detainees in a deifferent detention centre in #MITA.

In any other work place this person would have lost his job, but @AusBorderForce protected this guard:

How Fascist based
#CorporateNazism
is being used by Trump
to Divide the United States and install
itself as
#KochBrothers preferred government.
It is easier to Divide and conquer than it is
to take on everyone at one time.
Subdue and remove one group at a time.
Trump is using Immigration as his first assault instead of Hitler's "Jew blaming and Hatred".
First divide, then attack the first group
you want to destroy.
Hitler chose the Jews. Put them in 'work camps' made into 'concentration camps'.
Then used his 'holocaust' to destroy them.
Also sent innocent Polish citizens there, wanted their homes & property for Germans.

Current #WestPapua protests are fueled by Indonesian racism against Papuans. asiatimes.com/2019/08/opinio… That #racism has a history, and it's one reason world powers agreed to hand West Papua to Indonesia in the first place back in the 1960s. Thread.
1960s: one Indonesian writer wanted to “free” Papuans from “stone age civilization” but noted their skills in music & sports; foreign minister wanted Papuans “down out of the trees even if we have to pull them down”; Indonesian president's audience wore blackface at a rally.
A briefing from US president John F Kennedy's national security staff dismissed Papuans as a "stone age" people

Hey @PennLaw, it's a good thing that you gave Professor Wax a sabbatical so she could enhance your brand!

And the @NewYorker was happy to help!

newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/a….

(Thread)

#Lawtwitter #academictwitter #phdchat #racism @atlblog @JosephPatrice
Some highlights on this thread. First quote from Wax: "Why are successful, peaceful, orderly, prosperous, technologically advanced, democratically sound countries so rare and so few, and why do they clump up in one tiny corner of the globe, namely Europe, the Anglosphere?"
(Gosh, I dunno, you never spoke to anyone about colonialism?).

Wax: "I think colonialism as an explanation is just a nonstarter. Colonialism came very late on the scene."

This morning I sent a tweet to someone who was clearly smearing #Corbyn I started by saying "You joined the Lib Dems because you are a #Tory You line your pockets on the hard work of others." For my troubles I received a lot of abuse.
Nice to know that remainers consider a nurse and veteran a cultist dickhead. I actually voted remain, but would rather see Corbyn negotiate a trade deal that keeps many of the freedoms we have than have a no deal Brexit!
To debate and discuss the nuances of brexit etc. Is one thing but to use #Antisemitism #Racism #Cult and the notion that Lib Dems are progressive is another.

TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

The USA is guilty of multiple counts of mass murder.

How do you go about trusting a mass murderer to do the right thing?

Apparently the heads of European states have no problem doing so.

Are they mad, or are we?

#Racism #US #State #Terrorism
TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

The USA finds it easy to kill millions if they aren’t white. The native Americans, then came the African slaves.

Later, the Japanese, then the Vietnamese. In recent times the Iraqis, Libyans, Syrians & Yemenis.

#Racism #US #State #Terrorism
TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

Is it just coincidence that the USA can kill millions of non-white people & few to no questions are asked by the heads of state in western Europe?

Are those heads of state racists too?

Conscious racism or not.

ALERT: Neo-Nazi Organizing “Salute to President Trump” Rally, September 14 in #Dahlonega, #Georgia

Chester Doles, a longtime neo-Nazi & “fourth-generation” Klansman, is organizing rally in downtown Dahlonega, GA 9/14
atlantaantifa.org/2019/08/16/ale…

#LumpkinCounty #racism #noklan #gapol
Despite the #Dahlonega rally being organized by a notorious neo-Nazi with a history of violence, the national director of Bikers for Trump - Dale Herndon - has pledged his support.

#BikersforTrump #NeoNazi #klan #Georgia
Looks like the local #LumpkinCounty #GOP also give a nod and a wink to the Nazi-organized event.

Care to comment @ga9_gop @GaRepublicans?
