عيد همگى بود مبارك

قطعه اى از ترانه #روحوضى #حاجی‌فیروز كه هر سال ميشنويم و همچون هزاران سال پيش به استقبال #نوروز و بهار ميرويم

در اين رشتو به اين پرسش پاسخ خواهم داد كه آيا حاجى فيروز، ميراث برده دارى عهد #قاجار است؟
اگر نيست، پس از كجا آمده است؟
١/٢٤
در سالهاى اخير پژوهشهاى دكتر پدرام خسرونژاد، درباره برده دارى در عهد قاجار، اطلاعات ارزشمندى درباره بخش مهمى از جامعه و تاريخ ايران در اختيار مخاطبان قرار داده است
او در آثارش سعى ميكند تا از خلال عكسها و اسناد تاريخى، مخاطب را با احوال بخشى از جامعه ايرانى آشنا سازد ٢/٢٤
در عهد قاجار، بردگان سياه و سفيد در خانه اشراف و درباريان خدمت ميكردند
بردگان سياهپوست عمدتا از بازار برده فروشان مكه كه به همت خلافت #عثمانى رونق يافته بود، به ايران راه ميافتند و بردگان سفيدپوست توسط ايلات قفقاز، تركمنستان و مكران، به اسارت درآمده و در ايران فروخته ميشدند ٣/٢٤

🔴 Du coup, quels sont les sujets « Sociaux » sur lesquels vous avez changé d'avis ? 🙃

Faisons une fois de plus primer le courage de pouvoir changer son opinion, que la honte de s'être trompé 👈
Personnellement :
- J'ai mis beaucoup de temps à comprendre le #BlackFace
- J'avais une posture abolitionniste de la #Prostitution qui a plutôt évolué (même si je ne suis pas encore arrêté), un bon podcast qui illustre la problématique du sujet :
- J'avais un apriori assez caricatural de l'écriture #inclusive, m’intéresser vraiment au sujet m'a rendu plutôt sympathisant même si je lui trouve toujours de véritables défauts.

- J'ai mis un moment à comprendre la notion de #Charge #Mentale dans le féminisme.

A thread with examples on what #Antisemitism REALLY looks like since what #DeSeanJackson posted seems to have caused so much calamity. Many are confused on this issue, and I have no problem assisting.
This was the true start of #Antisemitism . Jews were kidnapped and brought to America on ships in 1619. ImageImage

⚠️TW⚠️//: #shanedawson being Offensive, Rasict, Derogatory, Antisemitic, Islamophobic and more- A thread:

#ShaneDawsonIsOverParty #ShaneXJeffree #ShaneDawsonIsOver #shanedawson
Here is a video of a skit that #shanedawson & his friends made in high school. They are degrading & derogatory towards Western Asain people, they are also Islamophic by disrespecting the Hijab which is sacred a symbol of modesty in Islam and devotion to Allah for muslim women.
⚠️TW// Antisemitism and rasim⚠️ Here is a skit that #shanedawson made during his high school days with his friends. He dresses up as Hitler and even does a brief nazi salute.

Let's walk the talk.

Let's fight racialised oppression for real.

Let's put decolonization on the agenda for changing racist power structures for real.

#BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloydMurder #racisme #Roma

@DDGCtweets @ColKnowledges @colonialhangovr @theNUC1 @UN_PGA Image
#Decolonisation is an essential element for any recovery plan for #Europe in order to overcome structural racism & social issues exacerbated by #COVID19.

Replacing statues of criminals with memorials to their millions of victims is a great starting point. #BlackLivesMatter Image
What #BlackLivesMatter means in #Europe?
Why EU is so silent?
Why No action on commissioners who deny racism?
Why politicians who have taken part in #blackface end up being an commissioner?
Why no non-white #EU commissioners?

1) A thread on #ContactTracing. Yes, it's here. We are watching the #NWO #Agenda21 script play out right in front of our eyes. First we'll show what this is, then I'll share an Anon's opinion of what is really going on. No fear....
2) First, THOUSANDS of #ContactTracers are being hired all over the country. The evidence of this is clear. cbsnews.com/news/contact-t…
3) Now, who would be attracted to such an invasive job? How EXCITED your neighbor might be to be able to decide the future of your kids and other family members through #ContactTracing! 🙄 Controlling flags, grass length and noisy dogs is just not enough!

We have just launched our report about the media ecosystem and mis/disinformation in the 2019 Canadian Federal election. What follows is a mega thread detailing our methods, findings and some broader reflections. @mcgillu @munkschool @MaxBellSchool @ppforumca
1/n
There is a big worry about the influence of mis/disinformation and other forms of online media manipulation on democratic institutions, elections and political life. We set out to build and produce a robust and reproducible Canadian study. And we are heartened by what we found.
We assembled a fantastic team of political scientists, computer scientists, communications and public policy scholars to do what we believe to be the most comprehensive case study of an information ecosystem done during a Canadian election to-date.

#Election2019 for @VaGenAss is less than 2 weeks away. I have thoughts.

As I wrote for @RVAmag this week, I think #BlueWave is (probably) still cresting, with @vademocrats likely to take back #VAGeneralAssembly

Basic numbers still favor Dems by far. Dem fundraising is good, including record haul for @debrarodmanva; still getting tons of outside $$, as I told @vpm earlier this month

The problem is Judy that 1) you did not treat the #blackface issue with seriousness or sensitivity. You got your ass handed to you and then decided to put out a statement.
2) You felt ok to publicly state that “the community” accepts this because your leader, the PM, did not use the opportunity to raise the consciousness of Canadians about #blackface and tell people who need to learn about it, why it was wrong in the first place
3) Most candidates hoped the issue would just disappear, and instead of showing your mettle and challenging the PM to do better, and telling Canadians what he will do to be held accountable for his behaviour, most of y’all stayed silent

After reflecting on Trudeau’s #brownface (and now #blackface) scandal, a THREAD:

TL;DR: Racism is systemic. Policies matter. Commit to anti-racism. Amplify racialized voices. Scrutinize for consistency.

Race is complex. Its discourse must meet that complexity, not overlook it.
First, be *aware*. Stop being surprised by events like this. It’s not “shocking” that Trudeau wore blackface; It’s expected. Racism is systemic in Canada. Those who deny it aren’t seeing a different society, they’re simply failing to name it.
Second, be *precise*. Specifically, ask the right questions: Not “is Trudeau racist?” But “how do his actions reflect systemic racism?” And “what are we doing to dismantle that system?” The individualization of racism is what upholds its systemic force.

No. Nobody with even half a brain cell on the left would do that if they were aware of the historical significance of Caucasian people painting themselves into #BlackFace. (gollywogs etc) So it's clearly something @JustinTrudeau did before he learned what it meant.
To anyone accusing me of being biased or inconsistent, suggesting that I'm only taking this position on blackface because I Iike Justin Trudeau.... Here's a thread I made over a year ago about people I'd never even heard of...
Honest opinion:
Blackface to imitate black people in general has historical connotations making it racist AF.
Blackface as an homage to a character/celeb you love doesn't make you racist... but unless Spielberg does your makeup it won't look good enough not to look disrespectful.

We are missing the point if this story becomes about Justin Trudeau being unveiled as "a racist". Here is an opportunity to think more deeply about the situation and what allows it to be so. I'm not in any way surprised by the image that has been circulated. /1
North American society is quite focused on identifying people as 'racists' or 'not racists'. Being called racist is considered one of the worst labels you could apply to someone. And yet, we all live, breathe and swim in a soup of structural racism reinforcing racist beliefs. /2
The reason for the crisis is that @JustinTrudeau's image is one of being a 'good person' who identifies as feminist, welcomes immigrants, and reconciliation. So his defenders rush to say, he's not 'a racist' because this is impossible for someone who is a 'good person'. /3

[CONTRE ENQUETE] Le soir de la fête de la musique à Nantes, la police charge violemment les fêtards. 14 personnes tombent dans la Loire. 1 disparu #Oueststeeve ? On a enquêté sur le commissaire responsable de l'opération. Plusieurs révélations. #Thread ⬇️
streetpress.com/sujet/15627494…
Selon plusieurs témoins, avant la charge de la police, des fêtards / organisateurs ont voulu dialoguer pour désamorcer la situation : 🗨️« Ils nous ont directement insultés et bousculés. Ils nous ont dit: Fermez vos gueules, on vous parle pas ! » #Thread ⬇️streetpress.com/sujet/15627494…
Comme s'ils voulaient en découdre. Alors qu'ils tentent de discuter et qu'il n'y a aucune violence des fêtards, « ils sont repartis s’équiper. », raconte un témoin. Le drame pouvait être évité ! #Thread ⬇️

Yesterday I met with labor union representatives who asked me, "What are people telling you on the doors about how we can move forward?"

"Forward" is a really great-sounding, popular political term. Obama used it. So did Communist China in the 1980's: (向前看) I have, too.
It came up at our healthcare/reproductive freedom roundtable last night. "How do we move forward?" I asked my guests @MargieInTheDMV and @srobgyn.

Certainly, recognizing the need to move forward and having conversations is important, and a first step as Margie pointed out.
The refrain after a tragedy like #NewZealandTerroristAttack is always how to move "past" it. The same words used in the wake of the #Blackface scandals here in Virginia.

The metaphor underlying it all is: we're all on a linear path: backward is bad, forward is good.

@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Amen brother!!😍🤗

#BlackHistoryMonth is like a breadcrumb, to follow our #Clues, that as another proverb hashtag called #AmericanDOS is used, leading more #ISRAELITES to #Awake from #Christianity paganism and sorcery. #Religion has never been our friend. #WakeUp 911. #REPENT
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Understanding: #Hosea 4:6. #Christianity never told us the #Messiah whom is called #Jesus is #blackface as in naturally #Dark. Never told us that #Moses is #Dark. #Job, #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB all are #BlackLikeUs.

#Churches teach #paganism and doesn't keep #Sabbath Day holy

First, #blackface. Then, #sexualassault allegations. Now, threats of impeachment. I’ve got the latest information on the chaos in the #Commonwealth all morning on @wusa9 #GetUpDC Image
#Virginia @LGJustinFairfax could soon be on the way to losing his job if one #Arlington lawmaker gets his way.

@HopeforVirginia is planning to introduce articles of impeachment against #Fairfax today.

The 39-year-old is facing sexual assault allegations from two women. @wusa9 Image
If those articles of impeachment are introduced against Fairfax today, we could see a vote as early as tomorrow.

That resolution would kick off hearings on the allegations. A committee would have to recommend impeachment, and the full house would have to vote @wusa9 Image

Talking to voters on the campaign trail is one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. So I'm going to start #VoterPearls, pearls of wisdom I pick up as I meet the people of Virginia's 87th District.
From this weekend's canvass:

"Traffic is bad, but people are good. At least , they want good. That's my story and I'm sticking with it."

#VoterPearls
"I stood there, the only born American in the circle, and thought, why does that matter? One of these people (born elsewhere) might cure Alzheimer's. Why wouldn't we let people in?"

First, #Virginia's governor defends #infantacide, now this yearbook photo from college where he is dressed in #blackface surfaces a few days later.

#Kavenhaugh did nothing. Rep. #SteveKing's statement was taken out of context by The New York Times...
but their crimes were being #Republican.

#Democrats are literally getting a pass for baby murder and blatanty saying black people are stupid clowns.

....
Since so many #blacks continue to support Democrats regardles what they say or do, the shoe obviously fits for them and all other #Democrats are sick #hypocrites.

Nessa thread eu vou usar a psicologia pra te libertar de um arquétipo perverso: o #vagabundo; uma ficção criada pra marginalizar a pobreza e principalmente o povo negro.
O nosso povo foi taxado como vagabundo desde que deixou de ser escravizado. Não é atoa que um dos atributos negativos que a cultura do #blackface atribuía em seus espetáculos era de que os negros seriam preguiçosos e desengonçados.
Existe uma técnica de limpeza social velada que é usada com êxito até hoje: a criminalização de certos comportamentos. Nos EUA e em outros lugares é discutido se o uso e a venda de certos entorpecentes foi atribuída a grupos étnicos como forma de reprimi-los.
