White British establishment has been way too racist and harsh towards #DianeAbbott (“DA”) among #BlackWomen—not denying many of their points—compared to others.

1/10: Let's talk about #WhitePrivilege. It's a term used to describe the advantages and benefits that white people receive solely because of the color of their skin.
2/10: These benefits include access to better education, job opportunities, and healthcare, as well as the ability to move through life without being discriminated against based on skin color.
3/10: White privilege doesn't mean that white people don't face challenges or difficulties in life. It simply means that they won't face additional obstacles because of their skin color.

1/As additional context to what appears to be a coordinated attack on Moore County's power grid during a drag show protest in Southern Pines, guess who's a board member of Education First Alliance? Emily Grace Rainey, who has been spewing Christo-fascist rhetoric on social media. Image
2/Education First Alliance's Sloan Rachmuth, if you recall, organized the anti-woke education conference in Charlotte earlier this year and has taken up a crusade against anything that resembles equity in public schools. Image

Ich bin eindeutig nicht Zielgruppe (außer Gottschalk und Koch erkenne ich niemand), aber eine Frage habe ich:
#DiePassion Image
Noch ein paar Gedanken zu Klaws als weißer Jesus und dann noch etwas überraschend positiv zu #DiePassion zum Abschluss:

Der Tweet, den ich auch als Story auf Insta gepostet habe, schlug dann noch Wellen, da @moyome_ ihn und eine Nachricht von Klaws geteilt hat:
Diese unterirdische Reaktion von Klaws bezog sich aber nicht auf die „Wie ist Jesus weiß geworden?“-Story, sondern auf eine andere von @moyome_ vom Vortag, wie sie mir bestätige. Das macht es nicht besser, aber etwas nachvollziehbarer.

Reminder: the word abortion does not appear in the Bible.
Since we’re on the subject of Republican hypocrisy/misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia (and other assorted SCOTUS confirmation bullshit), here’s a throwback to the Keg Stand Kavanaugh tantrums they tolerated without uttering a single objection. 🧾 #KlanBehavior #WeBeenKnew
Black women supporting Kamala Harris’ presidential bid/VP nod, as well as Joe Biden’s early declaration of his commitment to nominating a Black woman to the SCOTUS & a woman as @VP, as well as Jim Clyburn’s 2nd guessed endorsement of Biden above ALL else, tried to tell Y’ALL.

I was violently detained by police for carrying my sleeping infant daughter into my home w porch lights off. A white neighbour called the police on me for "breaking into my own home". The cops didn't hug me. They had me on the ground, screaming obscenities #WhitePrivilege
The experience of Black, Indigenous and other people of colour and the poor with the police in 🇨🇦 could not be more different from the nauseating displays of affection and support given to the white supremacists holding this country hostage. We have always known this.
People are messaging me that I lied about my experience with the police to get likes. I didn't. This is the lived experience of Black, Indigenous and other people of colour and the poor. Just because you haven't experienced racism personally, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

1/ Jim Kerr of #FreedomConvoy2022, usually the clown posting party vids of White Folks Dancing Badly to Awful Music, has a petulant meltdown when the thing they were told was going to happen happened.

I don't think he manages reality that well, nor that it's gonna get easier.
2/ Note here that he gets right up in the faces of two officers who appear to be female.

Have you ever seen him do this to someone male, and his size?
3/ More #WhitePrivilege talk as Jim laments what the world is coming to, when a major city decides to take action to end its occupation by those who have terrorized it.


I'd also take bets that before #WhiteFreedomConvoy2022, Jim never knew a trucker.

Privilege: Effects of a White Privilege Message Intervention and Conservative Media Use on Freedom Threat and Racial Attitudes."

Summary of new research into the effectiveness of '#WhitePrivilege' messaging to white audiences in the USA.…
'White privilege' is a controversial phrase, which produces a wide range of responses, from offended dismissal to complete embrace.

For example, UK Minister for Equality, Kemi Badenoch said: "We don't want our teachers to give their white students lessons on White Privilege."
I can see why the phrase is problematic for some audiences, & how it can have a counterproductive impact eg implying to poor or otherwise struggling people that they are 'privileged' will cause a negative reaction. It is, nonetheless, easy to understand:

THREAD: #Diwali is around the corner, & Hindus will adorn their homes & businesses w/ the Swastika. But, Prof Truschke peddles #Hinduphobia in the name of the Swastika (this is not the first time). Her argument is dangerous & should be condemned by @rutgers & @Rutgers_Newark. 1/n
"Ambiguous sense??" The Swastika has ALWAYS been a positive, auspicious sign (vs the Hakenkreuz of Hitler). To suggest that Swastika is "sometimes" and "ambiguously" used by Hindus for hate is blatantly false & paints Hindus as Nazi sympathizers, opens them up for attacks. 2/n
In Sept 2016, she connected an innocuous Indian university building shaped like a Swastika to Nazism, even though the two had nothing to do w/ each other - a thinly veiled attempt to link Hindus & Nazis together again (tweet deleted since then). 3/n

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

Im sorry but the phrase #whiteprivilege hardly created adverse material conditions of “WWC”. Let’s start w/ Enclosures Acts of 1700s. These allowed wealthy farmers to buy up large sections of land that smaller farmers relied on for centuries to graze their cattle collectively
I don’t think it was the phrase ‘white privilege’ that “forced” the British parliament to increase private land ownership impoverishing multitudes of people who were forced into industrial towns to seek work in factories and mines fuelling the Industrial Revolution
and the accumulation of obscene wealth and economic and political power for British elites (at the expense -always- of the poor)

1/ #WhitePrivilege It is not anti-racism that has caused white working class kids to perform badly at school, and it's cynical and divisive of the Tories to suggest otherwise.

But there is clearly a problem among a segment of the white working class. So some thoughts.
2/ Deindustrialisation has hit the working class hard. Employment patterns, communities and working class organisations have crumbled. Millions of stable unskilled jobs have disappeared and those that remain are often in the gig economy.
3/ Since the 1970s patterns of working class life that had endured for generations have disappeared. Many working class people have adapted and thrived in the post-industrial economy, but many others are struggling in a less stable economy that demands higher skills.

Aged 12, I did an experiment.😈

I got 3 white friends (worse academic/detention records than me) to untuck their shirts, pull down their ties & undo their top buttons while queuing to be let into lunch.
I undid one button.

The teacher only stopped me.
I laughed.
Which is why this didn't really come as a surprise.

People are going nuts over this, calling me a liar, so for the record...

I honestly have no idea whether it was 2 kids or 3 kids. I can remember 2 (best friends) but can't picture the third.

Apparently not remembering every detail from 20 years ago makes it LESS believable.🤷🏿😬 Image

Working class well educated white guy here. A few words on the #WhitePrivilege thing in this context... (1)
...yes, its true, #WhitePrivilege is unhelpful in discussions of the problems you face in education from my background. But its also just not the point. Yes, there are huge challenges, its not because you're white though (2)
...race is a proxy of class in the UK. White kids in the working class are held back by poor schools, disinterested and under resourced teachers, an anti-intellectual culture and higher education thats hostile to us (3)

You have to understand the British elite's war on left ideologies as reactions, not action: BLM triggers the "war on woke"; the huge Gaza/Al-Aqsa demos trigger this new attack on the concept of #WhitePrivilege ... soon there'll be a full-blown attempt to ban #CRT ... 1/...
2/ ... but the action/reaction cycle is international, with the Murdoch empire as the vector. If Fox is banging on about #CRT thousands of times a month, but the UK Times and Sky are not, things feel out of joint...
3/ So the whole Anglosphere, from Sydney to Belfast, has to jump to the rhythm of the GOP right, which in turn is the willing host of fascist groups and ideologies...

"No need to plead guilty. The fashionable doctrine of #whiteprivilege is fatally undermined by the facts"

#WhiteSupremacy #Colonisation #SlaveTrade #Rasism…
"The blatant racial bigotry of the left must be called out. It is no longer an esoteric academic debate; it is a crisis that threatens to tear the country apart."

#WhiteSupremacy #Colonisation #SlaveTrade #Rasism…
"In 1870, only 10 percent of Africa was under formal European control"

The European colonization of Africa only lasted a short time period so we cant be blamed for most of Africas tribal problems.
