The words “#israel is a RACIST APARTHEID state” actually never came out of #DesmondTutu mouth - so before you VEX up to my tweets: check, check again and check a 3rd time! Coz you will get checked🤷🏾♂️💥!
2/ He commented on what HE SAW and what it made him REFLECT on!
Here are some facts - #DesmondTutu was a BLACK man who was born and raised in #SouthAfrica a country that practiced #Apartheid, his skinfolk were mistreated, tortured, jailed (Mandela), killed etc.
3/ his skinfolk (black people) were deprived of freedoms and liberty within the borders of THEIR own country #SouthAfrica, the white oppressor kept for themselves the best lands and pushed his skinfolk into SLUMS, where they lived a life of poverty and ill-health!
2/ those who live in their white western world bubble and didn’t know about #DesmondTutu, will today have learnt that he wasn’t just a robotic #ArchbishopTutu, he didn’t just wear robes, walk around reading institutional sermons and psalms, he was also a CONSCIENTIOUS Black man
I came here at the age of 5, my family were refugees escaping the Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi!
I’m currently a taxpaying contributing British citizen
2/Seeing the way the #ToryCorruption government uses connotations and terminology to whip up a frenzy from their xenophobic and racist voters (and Britons at large) makes me feel sick
This country was built by White people and PoC alike! And will forever be that way going forward
3/ PoC/ BAME such as @sajidjavid@SadiqKhan@pritipatel etc all came here as economic migrants seeking a better life - few years ago Sajid and Sadiq were competing about whose dad came with the least in their pockets!
Ultimately the HUMANS who died could have been their parents
2/There’s something about the way the WHITE community thinks that being racist to black/Asians & Muslims (islamaphobia) is permissible and excusable
We have this hierarchy where being antiBAME racist doesn’t lose you a job, it doesn’t require an apology, you just laugh it off🥶
3/ being Antiblack racist means that you get platformed by western media… associates and sponsors don’t have to feel shame … and when the racist is corned - she quite literally laughs it off as “it happened 4 years ago… let’s MOVE ON🤣😂”
Im so very glad that @kehinde_andrews has commented & written on these intracommunity terminologies! We black people have tried to educate “white socialists” on twitter about the origins and use of the terms - but in order to defend #RachaelSwindon and racists: they acted DUMB AF
2/ the journey to challenging white supremacy and slavery was NOT an easy because the enemy (white supremacy) KNEW how to manipulate our skinfolk in order to divide and conquer
They’d treat Selected black ppl with tokenism, favour, grace in order to yield spies/uncleToms/coconut
3/By manipulating cherrypicked black people - white supremacy knew that racism they could coax information out of uncle Toms! If there were any slave escape plans - an Uncle Tom would slide into white man’s Manor House and snitch, in return for a single cigar/bottle/pair of shoes
Because Robert chose to speak with @UnknownMe82 (Judy Gatiss) a black woman whose been target of racist abuse from Rachael!
Yet RS parades herself as a “socialist”🖕🏾
2/ Astonishingly, despite #RachaelSwindon ‘s abuse & orchestration of abuse being public a lot of “socialists” on twitter continue Shield her from accountability and indeed continue to fund her PayPal
Those who enable RachaelSwindon through silence and PayPal are part of problem
3/ For past few months, black ppl on twitter have raised concern about #RachaelSwindon - few “socialists” listened: saw the evidence and condemned her bigotry and racism! But sadly she continues to receive endorsement from “socialists” - much to the chagrin of victims of racism😤
2/ It’s also CLASSIC that it’s white people coming out to try and minimise racism in order to paint their friends (that they refuse to reprimand) in good light
You can defend Tiff all you like, you can defend LouiseRawAuthor #rachaelSwindon etc ALL YOU LIKE, but we got receipts
3/ See, dear white people who are trying to minimise racism in order to paint your racist enabling friends in good light…if you’re going to be brave and courageous enough to defend racist-why don’t you stay strong enough and not run 🏃♀️ away from scrutiny!
3/ A racist account called Joker and another one called cheeky monkey used the tropes against black women.
A previously friendly “antiracist” LouiseRawAuthor endorsed the tropes! @feeldalove168 reached out to her in DM to ask her to retract/apologise - she REFUSED, doubled down🤷🏾♂️
1/ Let me say this as a black man reflecting on the racism & enablement of racism that I see today, and how indeed the resistance and pushback against racism is demonised and tarnished by keepers of status quo. And how today’s experience has made me ponder on my ancestors🤔🤯🤨🤷🏾♂️
2/ to say that what we have all witnessed over the last few months pertaining to the use of antiblack tropes: 🍌 🐒 and lynching images - is an understatement!
In the 21st century I naively thought that white people would all join us in challenging racism - I was very wrong🤷🏾♂️🤯
Taking the knee is not your voice - it’s our voice, it’s the voice of black people, doing what their predecessor like #MLK and #Mandela had to do to get YOUR predecessors to stop treating them like subhuman!
❌You don’t get to tell us how to express our trauma/pain❌
2/ Taking the knee has been discredited by bigots and racists like Farage et al. In order to build their culture war against “woke”- woke being a euphemism for “stop whitewashing history and teach full unfiltered history” l- If we did that - it exposes British atrocities & wealth
3/ and it’s not “borrowed” from the USA #MLK fought for ALL black people across the globe! In the 1960s Britain and Europeans still had colonies across Africa and Caribbean where your predecessors were committing the most horrendous racism - away from the British eyes!
3/ When a racism crisis broke out on the #SocialistSunday corner of twitter, and black women were receiving lynching emails, unknown calls making racist remarks - “socialist accounts” trolled black women rather than rebuke racism! Some even sent out “solidarity” (for the racists)
Well this is interesting, one of the paragraphs in there where she comments on people “conflating” her comment is probably a response to my initial message to her on the fateful day she chose to endorse LouiseRawAuthor
I had asked to “read context” she replied with: see attached
2/ after sending me a PATRONISING response, she did NOT read the context, instead she blocked me, and behind a block proceeded to bait her hyenas with my account. I subsequently had Rose Shillito come at me with ACCUSATIONS and pile-ons!
Rachael DID NOT LISTEN to black voices❌
3/ the backtracking and gaslighting she tried to give @ThatAsianDude_ in DMs did NOT correspond to her abuse on the TL!❌
1/ Good morning twitter,
So I’ve just woken to discover that a certain @Mxv021 account has in the last couple of weeks been trying his UTMOST to 1) pile-on my account and 2) lie about my account’s character ALL because I will not tolerate his and his associates racism enableism
2/ the first allegation from @Mxv021 is that I’ve doxxed somebody - point of correction- if someone is racist or spreads racism and I make a point of showing my rebuke of racism - it’s not doxxing - it’s me saying RACISM is NEVER acceptable!
❌To gain attention Mxv fabricates❌
3/ A couple of days ago @Mxv021 tried a midnight blitz attack on my account, he got minimal attention from his racism enabler audience, so last night he tried another midnight raid on my account, this time he has sought the use of antisemitism against myself and @PettiiSpaghetti
Thing is @susieshoes you weren’t alone in being caught off guard!
I remember the night Rachael joined in, I vividly remember trying to say “hey Rachael, not sure if you’ve seen context and chronology… “ she responded by PATRONISING me, pile quote tweet and blocked me!
2/ After her quote tweet - I received a tsunami 🌊 worth of targeted gaslighting by GregHarriett, he dragged me for several days, it all culminated with another pile on, the next one was RoseShillito - she even tried to get me suspended by twitter!
Rachael tried to destroy me
3/ wolfie was the next prophet sent by RachaelSwindon- he has been UNRELENTING in his gaslighting and abuse!
@stevewil94@GoodwinCharlie@Stephen888WTF@rooobine1@LouiseRawAuthor The 100% truth:
As we have re-iterated numerous times, prior to this crisis most of us black people followed both Louise & Rachael. THE DAY Louise tweeted endorsing racists, a black lady reached her via DM, she read & replied, when they asked for PUBLIC retraction: she MUTED &run
@stevewil94@GoodwinCharlie@Stephen888WTF@rooobine1@LouiseRawAuthor 2/ As soon as she stopped replying to DMs and TL messages, there was a relative period of quiet... then along came Rachael - the day Rachael waded in, was the day the twitter war started. It was the day gaslighting started. It was the day "tit for tat" "black hysteria" started
@stevewil94@GoodwinCharlie@Stephen888WTF@rooobine1@LouiseRawAuthor 3/ Louise then cleverly retreated, she would systematically ignore messages from black people, but for anyone who was not blocked by her- you could see her retweeting all her defenders.
Louise manufactured a situation that saw us (black people) fall out with many previous allies
Dear @stevewil94 I sincerely admire your sentiment, and your desire to see people do the right thing, however, @GoodwinCharlie has outlined what i think about Louise with re: her endorsement and encouragement of racist accounts.
2/ From the very beginning the task was a MORAL and ETHICAL task. No-one was beseeching her to be black people's best friend or advocate. All she was asked to do was: Recognise RACISM, recognise RACIST TROPES and distance herself from RACISM. She choose to embrace racists
3/ More, she took it a step further, she galvanised socialists accounts to join in her pool of gaslighting, truth twisting and ultimately she encouraged accounts to attack and misrepresent black women.
She even falsely encouraged an antiracist charity to pile against black women
