I find it rather sad. Blacks are great being who they are, but there is always someone comes along who wants, Orwellian-style, to force them into white history & culture, where they don't belong & stick out like a sore thumb.
And with this #SoreThumb things get even more Orwellian, because it serves #BigBrother & his minions as an instrument of socio-political intimidation & control, with anyone commenting on or protesting it being accused of #HateSpeech, i.e. #RACISM.
#BigBrother & his minions have such a grip on western "democracies" now that it beggars belief. But when I try pointing this out to most people, they look at me as if it is me who is mad.

Maybe I am, but I don't think so:

This is a interactive timeline.js where I curate cases of algorithmic racism. I've just translated it to english, maybe some of you may be interested to check the brazilian cases

Jim's Just Sayin, one year ago today:

The midgets of the Democratic Party are lining up to (a) seek the nomination of their party for the presidency and (b) endorse the so-called "Green New Deal."
No candidate of the Democratic Party can obtain my support without opposing their party's #bloodthirst, #warmongering, #classstrife, and #racism.
Bloodthirst? Yes. Executing a person because they refuse to move out of a home where they are not welcome is a grotesque and violent act, and that is the essence of abortion. Murdering someone because of where they temporarily reside.

This thread is for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. One step is to learn as much as you can about #WhiteSupremacy & #WhitePrivilege. Read! #BlackHistoryMonth2020
Do you know the history of the Civil Rights movement? You could start by reading vol 1 of "America in the King Years," "Parting the Waters" by @taylorbranch. simonandschuster.com/books/Parting-…
@taylorbranch In 1962, the Civil Rights Commission was going to make a very strong statement about racism. Politically, it would be problematic for President Kennedy. JFK was told "It is legal for the police to use dogs." So, turn to "Afro-Dog" next. cup.columbia.edu/book/afro-dog/…

Today my son was cornered at school by kids who wanted to “test” him for #Coronavirus just because he is half-Chinese. They chased him. Scared him. And made him cry.

I was the same age when I was bullied for being Pakistani.

It’s 2020. I thought things had changed by now... 💔
Update: my son is okay. Confused but okay. A Chinese friend and his brother were also targeted.

This morning, we talked about what racism is.

I will talk to the principal. There is hope for education, perspective and compassion. Here’s to making a better world.

#coronoravirus
Update: I spoke to the Principal.

She apologized. By then, she had learned of similar incidents in other classes. She immediately informed relevant parties and went to each class in each grade to talk about #racism, #coronavirus, and #compassion. This is leadership in action.

1/5 I am concerned about the growing number of reports of #racism and stigmatizing comments on social media directed to people of Chinese and Asian descent related to #2019nCOV #coronavirus. #EndStigma
2/5 It is understandable that our fears increase during times like this. However, we need to remember that cohesion in our collective efforts is important.
3/5 Everyone has a part to play in preventing the spread of the virus. The Chinese community and all travellers from affected areas are a key part of these efforts. #2019nCoV #coronavirus

One of my ‘mummy tweets’ went viral last week (1300+). Points I make about #museums, #race & #racism receive less attention. But these themes are deeply related to the criticism of ‘mummy science’. My key message in this THREAD, an English summary of a German op-ed for @SZ:
@SZ Race is the underlying concept of many museums. Take e.g. the ‘divide & rule’ approach of museums: by neatly separating & ‘handpicking’ certain ethnic groups, they erase others from their not so universal narrative to make it their own. Look at the new museum projects in Berlin:
@SZ Many know that the ethnological collections 2 b housed in the #Humboldtforum are problematic bc of their ‘othering’ approach & colonial context. But what about the #archaeology & antiquity collections opposite the Forum? Why have they not been challenged in this heated debate?

Thread 1.| Protests and strikes today in #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #Leros, #Kos against the presence of #hotspots and the plans for new closed reception and detention centers. All the trade associations and local authorities call for the protest. #OpentTheIslands #Refugeesgr
2. The main tone is that the local population is angry with the situation and the negligence of the government. In ##Chios & in Lesvos a lot of people participated in the protests. The officials' speeches were pointing the need to stop the new centers and this inhuman situation
3. The general atmosphere from the published texts seems to be mainly against #refugees, strengthening #racism and #xenophobia, although there are also voices with a #humanitarian approach like the union of Chios Psychiatrists politischios.gr/koinonia/sullo…

This appears to be yet another #HateCrimeHoax. Just like Jussie Smollett, media is breathlessly reporting that James Dees is a Trump supporter. Checked the police report and voter registration and, predictably, it's an unhinged Democrat with "anger issues" foxnews.com/travel/endeavo…
Start with the obvious morally bankrupt media selective omission: Dees is a registered Democrat.
But then when you start to read through the police report, you realize this was not at all a Trump supporter. It was an unhinged, very racist Dem with anger issues. Dees claimed he was going through a "really rough time."

Thread on #poverty, #racism, & #MLK:
#MLKDay #MLKDay2020

Reflecting back upon the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1 point always stands out, a searing reminder of what was – and still is – America’s grossest injustice: /1
that in the one of the richest nations in the world, so many millions of people remain trapped in cyclical, soul-crushing poverty. /2
Dr. King, of course, regularly received death threats as he fought for political rights for African Americans. Police and law enforcement agents beat and jailed him repeatedly for his stances on social equity. /3

Yesterday was at a rail stn in Herts. YP who had arrived by train from London was being talked to by 5 Police officers and suspected of drug supply. Police were very courteous, repeatedly asking if he felt at risk, was being threatened, needed help
Transpired his brother was fatally stabbed in London some time previously. Young police officers chatted to him for a while, very sympathetically whilst continuously asking and offering, further support. YP was then asked to get back on a train to London, which he agreed to do...
Went to buy my ticket and could hear a commotion behind. A lady ticket officer had come from behind the counter to tell anyone that wanted to know that the YP was not a kid, that the police had just being talking to him as he was a drug dealer and to make sure he bought a ticket

(2) The Federal Bureau of Terrorism and its pathetic cadre of infidel lackeys have mounted an all-out attack on the American population; an extension of #COINTELPRO and #OperationHammer.

This is one aspect of the bogus #FISA court and #watchlisting scam.
(3) The corrupt #FBI #JTTF #DHS have infiltrated & hijacked companies in the United States to engage in acts that collectively, per the #FBI's own definition, constitute terrorism.

Per the #FBI's internal documents they admit to engaging in "#Disruption" of "targets."

#Update #Antisemitic Incident!

#Germany #Gießen #Buchenwald

It was an incident that made headlines far beyond the borders of the 14,000-inhabitant city of #Grünberg (#Gießen).
At the beginning of November, it became known that several students from Theo-Koch School had #played and #sung #Antisemitic songs on their way back from a visit to the memorial in the former #Buchenwald #concentrationcamp near #Weimar.
Even then, the school announced the #consequences. Now school #community has turned to the public - with an #advertisement in a regional #newspapers. In the #ad, which appeared under the heading "Zero #Tolerance with #AntiSemitism",

#Antisemitic Incident !!!

#Belgium #Aalst

The #Belgian city of #Aalst returns the #award of its #carnival as a #Worldheritage Site.
Background are allegations of #racism and #antisemitism.
Mayor Christoph D'Haese said that one has had enough of the "grotesque #complaints" and let the #carnival be #deleted from the list. He thus came before a decision of @UNESCO before.
he had already considered removing the #Aalst #Carnival from World Heritage at the upcoming mid-month meeting.
The controversy has been going on since #spring. At that time D'Haese defended a float of the procession,

Let’s be clear: discussion of so-called discrimination without attention to contextual power dynamics & histories of oppression is meaningless & counter-productive.
Asking privileged folks to be aware of their privilege & to be responsible for their guests’ behavior in a space for marginalized people is not discrimination. It is asking folks to attend to & be accountable for power dynamics & histories of oppression that benefit them.
Further, someone being made to feel uncomfortable is not inherently discrimination. Accountability is uncomfortable. Being made aware of (let alone relinquishing some) of your privilege is uncomfortable. One’s feelings of discomfort are not facts/evidence of discrimination.

Last night after an incident in London in which members of the public were killed #FrancesBarber took the opportunity to link #JeremyCorbyn to the act of terror! In her eagerness to smear #Corbyn with the charge of #Antisemitism she herself made antisemitic comments
You may perhaps think that this is just a one off Jibe but it is not.
#Antisemitism & #Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it raises its head. Unfortunately #FrancesBarber is not really concerned about #Antisemitism rather she likes to focus her hate on #JC4PM Corbyn's actions would suggest not! bit.ly/35MONcn @threadreaderapp "Unroll"
