Thread su #Minneapolis e #DaunteWright: questo studio su 100 milioni di fermi della polizia mostra che: i neri vengono fermati il 20% di più dei bianchi (in proporzione)/1…
Capita spesso di venire fermati per controlli o infrazioni minori del codice della strada (un fanalino che non funziona) e poi incriminati, perquisiti, per altro. I bianchi vengono perquisiti 1,5-2 volte di meno dei neri/2 #Minneapolisprotests #DuanteWright #blacklivesmatter
I fermi casuali in seguito a una infrazione stradale proseguono troppo spesso con le perquisizioni. Se si limitassero a fare la multa, ci sarebbero meno incidenti. Alcuni Stati hanno emanato regole in questo senso/3 #Minneapolisprotests #DuanteWright #blacklivesmatter

"Let's go move, move, move!" As rioting re-emerged in Minneapolis last night, one officer could be seen pointing a rifle at protesters violating curfew, who then ran away.

Footage by @chrisjuhnphoto for @N2Sreports. Contact me for licensing.
Police could be seen confronting people inside of a business. After speaking to the business owner, police went inside.

They came out with the protesters in handcuffs and loaded them into a bus.
After the protesters were dispersed, @chrisjuhnphoto also captured footage as an individual boarded up businesses with broken windows and doors.

For example, in Chile they have used handheld lasers to disorient and neutralize riot police.
In #HongKong they have a bunch of people ready to put out tear gas systematically, and constantly innovate on how to fight back

“The black American struggle against racism is not only the struggle for freedom and liberation from exploited and oppressed, but also the new clarion call of the whole oppressed and exploited American people against the tyranny of the monopoly capitalism.”
--Mao Zedong
W. E. B. Du Bois is a black civil rights leader in the US. Since the late 1950s, China's diplomacy has been increasingly turning to the left, advocating world revolution and giving material and moral support to the national liberation movement in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Whether it's #COVID19, healthcare disparities, or police brutality, Black people need STRONGER white allies.

We are NOT expecting perfection from white people but here's how to be a BETTER ally to people of colour.

A thread ...
#GeorgeFloyd #Minneapolisprotests #JusticeForRegis
1. Great allies listen, listen, and learn.

To be an effective ally, it's necessary to understand the experiences of those you want to support.

Let them tell you.
2. Do your OWN research on the issues.

How are you going to be an effective ally if you don't know what the issues are?

Don't just learn about white supremacy, but understand how your personal lives support it.

As Trump calls the #Minneapolisprotests fighting racism THUGS, Biden addressed the problem like a leader: “We can’t ignore that we are in a country with an open wound right now. A wound far older and deeper than George Floyd’s killing-and his brutal, brutal death captured on film
2-"His final words, pleading for breath. ‘Let me breathe, I can’t breathe.’ It’s ripped open anew this ugly underbelly of our society. We need to make sure justice is real for the Floyd family. That the protections and the rule of law are real for every American.
3-"That officers in the Floyd case must be held accountable, including with the FBI investigation and independent Department of Justice civil rights investigation. You know, if we’re not committed as a nation, with every ounce of purpose in our beings-not just to binding up this

⬇️Thread of HD stills from tonight in #Minneapolis, taken during the ongoing #GeorgeFloyd uprising in the #TwinCities.

Slides 1–2: maX it PAWN, 28th Ave & Lake Street
Slides 3–5: heading West on Lake Street, approaching the #Minneapolis police dept #3rdPrecinct station.

A sign on a repurposed Target cart corral reads "R.I.P. Big Floyd" #GeorgeFloyd #GeorgeFloydProtest
The #3rdPrecinct was burning steadily at ~11 p.m. last night. The grounds were covered with graffiti, while the building was occupied inside all the way to the rooftop.

Spray-painted on a barrier is the phrase "Burn The MPD"

As protests continue across #Minnesota and #Minneapolis it's important to remember the state's racial disparities in poverty rates are among the worst in the country. #GeorgeFloyd…
Despite having an overall poverty rate that sits below the national average, the poverty rate (27.2 percent) for African Americans is almost four times the white poverty rate in the state.
This phenomenon has been dubbed “the Minnesota paradox” by Samuel L. Myers Jr., director of the Roy Wilkins Center of Human Relations and Social Justice at the University of Minnesota. @HHHSchool

THREAD on #GeorgeFloyd and #icantbreathe and #Minneapolisprotests: One good thing God can bring out of this lockdown & mask situation is to help the white church understand the anger of people of color.

If you have a hard time understanding, give me 2 minutes.

Imagine governors & local officials going beyond their mandate, and imposing extra burdens on freedoms you thought you were guaranteed in the Constitution.

Imagine local law enforcement tackling people for something like not wearing a mask.

Imagine no real recourse available.
Imagine that police were far more likely to do this to evangelical Christians who looked like you.

Imagine someone you knew had been jailed for it.
Imagine they were killed in custody.

Then imagine that nothing was done; the people responsible were never brought to justice.

Bizi var olduğuna ikna etmeye çalıştıkları Salgınla ilgili, verilen bilgilerin, paylaşılan verilerin hepsi yalan; Virüsle ilgili söylenen sözlerin, sosyal mesafe kuralı dahil, tedbir diye bize uygulatılan kuralların hepsi, masa başı çalışmasıyla oluşturulmuş uydurma bilgilerdir. Image
Bilim, bilimsel gibi kelimeleri kendilerine kalkan yapıp yalanlarını onların arkasına gizledikleri zaman insanları ikna etmek/kandırmak kolay oluyor.

Ama Allah var, adamların üçkağıtçıları bile dürüst.
