The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

@srdaugherty @billmaher Actually, though not from Spain, the origin of the virus is still disputed. There was a cluster in Kansas, yes.
In terms of why so many virus originate from, @billmaher might need to b reminded of how old the country is (w that, a history of political corruption & bureaucratic
@srdaugherty @billmaher mismanagement) & its important on the Asian-European trade route.
Given #climatechange & (global) #overpopulation, while it is generally a good thing to eat locally sourced food, ppl's incursion into uncharted territory will bring us into contact w exotic species & diseases we
@srdaugherty @billmaher have no immunity to defend ourselves against, whether that's through food sourcing or economic activities, such as logging. Given the fact that there is an intermediary between bats & humans (pangolins), simply making ppl stop eating bats is not gonna help. Also, is @billmaher

Baroness Warsi (the first Muslim to
attend Tory Cabinet meetings).

THEY, CLEARLY, KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE TORY PARTY, how #racist, #xenophobic, and nasty this #Conservative Party really is, they were right at the top of it, #BaronessWarsi ... the #Cons Party's most sen fig
Some key things to understand. Andrew Lansley (1st quote) was in the #Cameron Cabinet.
Baroness Warsi was Tory Chairman for this, Theresa May Government. Her comment, (2), was made LAST SUNDAY, her other quote (3) was from 2016.
She was so disturbed about the disgraceful attitudes she could see all the time that she decided to blow the lid on her own, rabid, Party. Her incendiary comment , in 2016, about there being "a simmering UNDERBELLY of #Islamophobia" came from her own experiences dealing with

Anti-Muslim #extremist #HATEGROUP ACT says it will host $1,500-a-plate gala at Trump’s Mar-a-Lardo

“The hate group makes money and ... Trump makes money. It’s a win-win for bigotry.”
miamiherald.com/news/politics-…
The jump in ticket prices also reflects how controversial groups may seek to use @realDonaldTrump properties to boost their own profiles...thus giving them more opportunity to recruit, radicalize and spread their hate-filled propaganda. ⚠️
ACT for America would likely be the most extreme group to book a major event at Mar-a-Lardo.

The club has seen its revenue dip due to @realDonaldTrump’s #whitesupremacist rhetoric

If you desire to understand the roots of the perennial & persistent #SouthAfricanXenophobia "crisis", you need to read this enlightening 2014 article by a South African @Sisonkemsimang

..madness that has been going on in #SouthAfrica for a couple of years now. Please take my word for it; it is a worthy read for anyone who seeks to truly understand the GENESIS

That said, I don't intend to dwell on the #xenophobic SA attacks, because I believe there is enough...
..news on conventional & social media. Everyone knows what's going on in #SouthAfrica already, so what I seek to do, is draw parallels with my own country, Nigeria, to reveal how we, despite not experiencing #Apartheid like SA, are on the same destructive path

Pls indulge me...

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

1. Constitution. Its important to understand the Constitution as a whole,not just sections. Also, you must understand the spirit and the letter of the constitution @HermanMashaba. Below is an excerpt but please read Section 2, in its entirety. Note:use of ‘everyone’ & ‘citizen’.
2. “This Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of democracy in South Africa. It enshrines the right of people in our country and affirms the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom. The state must protect, respect, promote and fulfill the Rights in the Bill of Rights.”
3. In addition to the Constitution, please remember South Africa is signatory to international Treaties and Conventions amongst others, international human rights treaties. Having ratified these treaties, South Africa is bound by them. We cannot have laws contradicting these.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

The problem with “#SHITHOLE”.
I do not give a shit about “anyone” including our #SHITHOLEPresident using the word SHITHOLE! That is just a stupid vulgar word. Our #SHITHOLEPresident should never have used it, But…

2.)

THAT IS NOT THE REAL PROBLEM!!!
There are many problems surrounding our #SHITHOLEPresident and his #SHITHOLE comments, but my issues are twofold, (ONE). the full contextual meaning of what he said, and

3.)

(TWO). the level of his ignorance and negative impact it is having on the global community.

1. When viewed in full context, the use of the word #SHITHOLE by our #SHITHOLEPresident is total undeniable #xenophobic.
