Fair warning: This is a really long post. But I think it'll be worth your while, so read up.

 

I don't even know where to begin about my day today. Fact of the matter is that I've had a few encounters? run-ins? with various African-American strangers this month and it's left me feeling hurt and confused.

 

First it was a random guy on the bus. I was going to work downtown and caught my bus as usual. Had to kinda run for it. When I got on the bus an African-American man in the very back yelled out that he'd told the bus driver to stop for me. I said thank you and sat down somewhere in the middle of the bus and started texting someone back on my cell. He then tried to convince me to move to the back and sit next to him so he could show me Something. What it was I never found out. When I refused the third time, politely, and said I had some work to do he got furious with me and told the whole bus that I hated black men and clearly I'd never been with one because then I'd KNOW BETTER.

 

I was seething. My ex boyfriend, in fact, is black and we dated 5 years and I got along great with his family and friends, black or otherwise. How DARE this guy say I knew nothing? I kept my mouth shut because, really, it would only get worse.

 

The next run-in was at work. I wait tables in a fancy restaurant, as most of you are aware. It's expensive and we do get diners who are unaccustomed to fine dining and high prices who have a lot of questions. I'm more than happy to help- it's part of my job and if I hated it, I would find a new career. As it is, I've been working at this restaurant for two and a half years.

 

So it shocked me completely when a very well-spoken and nicely-dressed African American couple stiffed me completely on my tip and left a note on the credit card slip that said "Thanks for teaching us the difference between fried chicken and scallops."

 

What was more shocking was that they ASKED the questions in the first place and asked and asked about the difference between frying and poaching until I was left with few examples and I simply picked the fried chicken that we're not only famous for, but has also been voted best in Chicago. They seemed content and were perfectly friendly and thanked me upon leaving... but left a big, fat zero on a $250 dinner bill.

 

My conflict today left me shaken. It's the worst yet- a scrawny, short, middle-aged African American man was begging in the red line subway at Roosevelt, going up and down asking people for change.

 

Now, I don't mind beggars. Chicago has more than its fair share and I'm sure some of them are legitimate. I'm not against handing out money and I do, from time to time, if I feel compelled. More often, I offer food to have it refused and money requested. Whatever.

 

This guy was dressed just as nicely as myself and I was dressed up to look at apartment showings. What's more, he claimed he needed money for transportation when he was already underground. You can get anywhere and transfer anywhere from Chicago's red line. I felt unwilling to give him anything so I simply said no and went back to my book.

 

He persisted. I said no again. He persisted yet again and I finally said, "Look, just leave me alone." He started screaming in my face, standing above me while I was sitting. He used all manner of swear words and that n-word I hate so much and told me I was awful, etc etc etc.

 

At this point, I got mad. I wish I'd controlled myself more or gotten up and walked away (I was taller and outweighed him, anyway), but I didn't.

 

I waved him away, rudely now, and told him he wasn't supposed to be begging on the CTA anyway and go away before I called the authorities.

 

He finally left me alone and all the other people around me started asking me if I was alright.

 

I guess I hadn't considered that I'd just been verbally assaulted in public.

 

I was shaken and couldn't wait to get out of that train station. My mind just couldn't get over the ugliness of the incident and what might have happened if he'd had a weapon.

 

I don't know. I know I'm not a racist. I know I struggle with prejudices like anyone else but that I manage them as best I can and have friends of all colors and creeds.

 

I'm still unsettled.

Not much to say here.

How can I Favorite my own photos?

This racist cop is ticketing this cab for an expired meter even though she knows the driver is in the mosk across the street enjoying an afternoon pray. This has been going on for years, cops target muslims at prayer for an easy ticket. Where is the freedom of religion promised in the constitution?

childhood hero's a racist apologist, i've still got trust issues at 28, and my roots are showing; i'm going to sleep.

A Peaceful Anti-Racist & Discrimination Rally was held by Thousands of Filipino OFW's.

 

MABUHAY ANG PINOY!

WALALALALA ALLAH HU AKBAR.

 

Some figs that might be put into a scene or dio.

As I hear a Marine at the front of the patrol shout "This is a fucking kodak moment" I instantly start to wonder what he is looking at. He is almost on the ground laughing so hard. Minutes later I am in the same exact position he was, im looking around... I dont see anything. Then I take another look at the Donkey! I guess its Afghans version of the General Lee!

There wasn't a major event in Chicago this weekend but I was heartened to see that the people standing up against hate in Boston and other cities massively outnumbered the neo-Nazis. I will continue to protest of the neo-Nazis hold a rally in Chicago.

 

I have a few thoughts about some recent events and, as I wait for the eclipse, I just wanted to get some of it out.

 

First, the title of this photo is a major chant of this movement from day one. It was shouted when the day after the "election" It was shouted on Not My President's Day. It was shouted at the Women's March. It was proclaimed at the March For Truth, The Tax March, the LGBQT March, the Muslim Ban protests, the Inauguration protests, the Science March.

 

I feel like the conversation liberals have constantly had with centrists and conservatives kind of goes like this...

 

Liberal: Trump is actually a nazi.

Centrist/Conservative: You can't believe that! He has a son in law who is Jewish! He can't be a nazi!

Liberal: His parents were both proud to be KKK members and he has appointed and supported white power neo-Nazis in his cabinet. This Muslim ban is the first step in a long agenda.

Centrist/Conservative: Oh, no, the Muslim ban is just to keep us safe.

Liberal: Explain to me how it keeps us safe. Did you ever stop to look at how the countries not banned are those that have business transactions with Trump whether or not they have a record of terrorism?

Centrist/Conservative: I haven't really looked into it...

Liberal: And, how do you think Muslim grandparents are exactly endangering this country?

Centrist /Conservative: I haven't really been paying attention...

Liberal: And what about the sharp increase in hate crimes that are occurring across America...how is that keeping anyone safe or making American Great Again?

Centrist/Conservative: I've just been really busy to look into it.

 

Ok, so I actually had a conversation like that as early as February. FEBRUARY. It's now August.

  

Second, sometimes people talk about how the media is so negative against Trump vs. how it's the job of journalists to hold our elected leaders accountable and get information out to us. Sometimes, I applaud journalists in their ability to do this but I am very frustrated over the media picking up on this self proclaimed "Free Speech Rally"

 

Let me tell you how I see free speech...I see it as if you have something to say that doesn't harm anyone, you can say it. But, if your idea of free speech is you bring weapons, beat up and murder people then that interferes quite a bit with another Constitutional Right: Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness. So, it's not on governments where even the police force doesn't have your same level of weaponry to allow you a platform to proclaim hate speech and commit bodily harm on those who don't agree with you. Governments are supposed to keep all of their citizens safe. The police force in Charlottesville allowed people to be murdered and badly beaten under their watch because they were outnumbered and terrified. The same kinds of things started happening in Germany leading up to WWII. I was recently glad to see the ACLU proclaim they weren't going to defend dangerous hate speech but it's also important that the media does not call these "Free Speech Rallies" but instead calls them "Neo Nazi Rallies." Call these people what they are and call their rallies what they are.

  

Third, I hate to say this one. Thanks Heather Heyer....you were brave and courageous and just and you did the right thing. Heather Heyer's mother also has a sense of dignity not acknowledging Trump's phone calls after his "both sides" comment. However, I have a sinking suspicion in my heart that if Heather Heyer had been a woman of color, Trump never would have even acknowledged her. I know this because of the many women and men of color who have lost their lives simply for being who they are who have not been acknowledged and used to galvanize a movement. Take the example of Nabra Hassanen, for instance, a young teenager who was murdered leaving an IHOP earlier this year. Did she get a tweet acknowledging her life and this grave injustice? Of course not, because she was killed because she was Muslim. Many of our beautiful Americans who are trans also do not get acknowledgement when they are murdered and many of them are men and women of color. So let's stop deluding ourselves with saying that black lives actually do matter in our country. They don't. People are getting arrested for taking down shitty racist statues but the nazis who brutally attacked Deandre Harris in Charlottesville haven't been charged even though there is tons of video evidence of their crimes.

  

Fourth, there are a few people who suddenly claim "art" and "history" as a reason for wanting to keep a bunch of poorly constructed racist statues. These people only seem to want to honor a certain history supporting an erroneous narrative that the Civil War was about states rights when it was very much about slavery. These deluded fools don't seem to care much for history when they are ruining sacred Native American grounds, stealing their artifacts, poisoning their water. Perhaps, it would be more accurate to state they really care about "White history and art." Now, that seems highly likely. But, if it's history and art that define a culture, I don't want a bunch of deplorable statues defining mine. How about we create a narrative of hope and strength around Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Maya Angelou, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Ellison, Langston Hughes...how about these statues are replaced with pioneers for just causes and we replace all the confederate flags with rainbow flags to show we are not divided by the color of our skin or who we love?

  

Fifth and Last, I have been glad to see some members of the GOP come out over the past week and say they don't agree with white supremacy and Trump's racist comments but I would like to remind them that actions speak louder of words. When you try time and time again to take away healthcare from millions of Americans, you're not targeting rich white people. When you try to take away any funds for helping poor African Americans get through college, that's racist. When you make sure that the pubic education system is a dismal failure by making sure that public schools don't have libraries, music, art, social workers, and funds for kids who speak English as a second language or who have disabilities and you target specifically poor urban areas, who exactly do you think you are claiming not to be racist? When you support the National Rifle Association, a racist organization that seeks to arm white power advocates just because they have lobbyists who give you kickbacks, who are you to claim you aren't racist? When you support incarceration of minorities for minor crimes like possession of marijuana, who are you to claim you aren't racist? When you support ensuring that those who have entered this country never have a chance to become citizens, who are you to claim you aren't racist? When you support a privatized prison industrial complex that preys upon minorities and introduces a modern system of slavery right before our eyes, who are you to claim you aren't racist.

 

Dear GOP-you are just as racist as your leader. You have proven it time and time again.

 

To Sum:

 

"Free Speech Rallies"=Neo Nazi Rallies.

Liberals have been aware of how harmful Trump is right from the beginning and trying to warn the rest of the country. Please listen instead of claiming we're just reactionaries. There are actual nazis marching in the streets. This is NOT ok.

Black Lives still don't matter to the powers that be in this country.

Confederate Monuments perpetuate harmful myths and are racist.

The GOP should not fool you into thinking they are not racist until they start legislating a whole lot differently.

Anti racist rally Glasgow March 18

Under a bridge and by some train tracks - in Wabasha, Minnesota.

BERKELEY, CA - 27AUGUST17 - Community organizations, leftwing and anti-racist groups, churches and religious leaders and others marched through the streets of Berkeley, carrying banners and blocking streets, to protest a planned rally by Nazis and white supremacists.

I could not believe this when I saw it. Growing up in the Akron area of Ohio, I saw these fairly regularly in the 70s, but I thought they were banned. Guess not. This one was seen in my old neighborhood directly across the street from the only black family in the neighborhood. Sickening.

 

update -- I just noticed the metadata lists this photo being taken in Silver Lake. Not so. I geotagged it at the exact corner where the photo was taken in Cuyahoga Falls. Thanks, Yahoo Maps.

'If a child feels an incident is racist - it is'

(model head teacher quoted by Ofsted)

 

It is estimated that around 250,000 racist incidents have been officially reported by schools since the legal duty to report took effect in 2002. Race relations officials claim this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the hidden reality of racism in Britain - 'institutional' or otherwise.

 

Are schools awash with racism or is this a fiction produced by a new brand of official anti-racism?

 

The Myth of Racist Kids' is a report produced by The Manifesto Club Publications , Adrian Hart uses his own experience working in primary schools (and observing one too many diversity workshops) as a spring-board for exposing what passes for anti-racism.

 

Adrian Hart demonstrates that today's official anti-racism threatens to disable a generation of children from rising above the divisive concept of race.

 

This brand of anti-racism has no place amidst Britain's dynamic social diversity and should, Hart argues, be scrapped: "This brand of anti-racism is about as progressive as racism itself and bears the familiar hallmark of the state seeking further opportunities to colonise and regulate everyday life. It stifles the burgeoning diversity taking place in Britain's primary schools, undermines the authority of schools, mistrusts teachers and profoundly misunderstands the nature of children."

Syrian Immigrant Who Said 9/11 ‘Changed The World For Good’ Is A Homeland Security Adviser

Peter Hasson

Reporter, Associate Editor

06/13/2016

 

NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 11: Hijacked United Airlines Flight 175 from Boston crashes into the south tower of the World Trade Center and explodes at 9:03 a.m. on September 11, 2001 in New York City. The crash of two airliners hijacked by terrorists loyal to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and subsequent collapse of the twin towers killed some 2,800 people.

 

One of the sitting members on the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism is a 25-year-old immigrant of Syrian heritage who said that the 9/11 attacks “changed the world for good” and has consistently disparaged America, free speech and white people on social media.

 

Laila Alawa was one of just 15 people tapped to serve on the newly-formed HSAC Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism in 2015 — the same year she became an American citizen. Just last week, the subcommittee submitted a report to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, recommending that the DHS avoid using Muslim terminology like the words “sharia” and “jihad” when discussing terrorism.

 

Alawa says she immigrated into the U.S. when she was ten years old. Her family had already left Syria by the time she was born. “But I will always be Syrian. I will always be from Syria. I will always be of Syria,” she wrote in November 2015, calling the country her “homeland.”

 

In 2014, Alawa commemorated the September 11 attacks by tweeting that “9/11 changed the world for good, and there’s no other way to say it.”

LailaAlawaAfterSept11

 

Exactly a year later, she claimed that, after September 11, “Being American meant you were white.”

 

In April 2013, she responded to a tweet from activist Pamela Geller who called the Boston Marathon bombings “jihad” by tweeting: “go fuck yourself.”

LailaPamelaGeller

 

On September 21 — the day after Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the U.S. would accept 85,000 Syrian refugees in 2016 and 100,000 more in 2017 — Alawa mocked the “Salty white tears all over my newsfeed.”

AlawaWhiteTears

 

In the Countering Violent Extremism report published last week, Alawa and her fellow subcommittee members recommended that the Department of Homeland Security “adapt to the changing nature of violent extremism itself” by devoting more attention to “anarchists, sovereign citizens, white-supremacists, and others.”

LailaAlawaAmericaBest

 

The report also recommended that, in order to combat violent extremism, the DHS “Focus on gender diversity of youth through careful attention to the range of push and pull factors that attract individuals of differing gender.”

 

As originally reported by The Daily Caller, the subcommittee Alawa serves on instructed the DHS to begin “using American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir‘ or ‘umma‘” when discussing terrorism in order to avoid offending Muslims.

 

Two months before Secretary Johnson created the Subcommittee on Combatting Violent Extremism, Alawa tweeted: “THE US HAS NEVER BEEN A UTOPIA UNLESS YOU WERE A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE THAT OWNED LAND. straight up period go home shut up.”

LailaAlawaCitizen AmericaUtopiaAlawa

 

She has previously indicated her belief that only “idiots” believe that “America is the best nation in the world.”

LailaAlawa911Good

 

In September 2014, a week after saying that “9/11 changed the world for good,” Alawa said that “9/11 is your day to pull out your flag themed clothing, and my day to look behind my back as I walk home.”

Alawa911Flag

 

Alawa is outspoken in her belief that “Islamophobic” rhetoric shouldn’t be allowed.

LailaAlawaFreedomOfSpeech

 

“We are living in a country that deems it ‘freedom of speech’ to spew absolutely hateful ish about Muslims. That’s not freedom of speech,” she tweeted. LailaAlawaIntolerant

 

Less than two weeks after the Boston Bombings, Alawa tweeted: “You can’t say something intolerant and not expect consequences. Not on my watch.” In April 2015, Alawa asked: “How the hell is the shit @PamelaGeller is spewing ‘free speech’? it’s straight up warmongering hate speech. It’s xenophobia.'”

LailaAlawaFreeSpeech

 

At the time, Geller (who is known as a bit of a provocateur) had recently arranged for ads in New York City with phrases such as: “Islamic-Jew hatred. It’s in the Quran.”

LailaAlawaWhiteDominant

 

In February 2015, she claimed that she can’t wait until “The Bachelor” has a star that “isn’t pure white” because white people are “not gonna be [the] dominant majority much longer.”

 

Neither Alawa nor the DHS replied to TheDC’s requests for comment over Alawa’s social media activity.

According to this article, hate crimes rise by up to 100 per cent across England and Wales. Just wondering, how many people would still vote for Brexit if they knew that food prices will go up, but all foreigners will be staying in the country?

So, is Mr. Popo racist?

 

The thing to keep in mind is, Japan has a vastly different racial history than America. There's a lot of Japanese racism (particularly against their indigenous people, Russians, the Chinese, and westerners). Certain thigns seem totally lost on Japanese society, such as blackface and golliwog imagery. When you see something that looks like this, it's usually totally innocent. Mind you, if the black dude starts gobbling fried chicken and lookin' for all da white wimmins, then we have a reason to talk.

 

So... Mr. Popo. His appearance is pretty cringe-worthy, so much so that some US versions of the anime colored him blue. Mr. Popo is an immortal genie who serves the current kami, or guardian (god) of earth. SO... yeah, sorta some slave imagery there. Ulp! But all the same, he's also wise, intelligent, pretty capable of doing his own thing (such as selecting a new kami), and could whoop Goku in a fight in their first appearance.

 

It's just so innocently, gleefully racist that... he's sorta not racist. But sorta is. I DUNNO!

The boys with feelings roll out the holidays.

A fear of being viewed as racist has been cited as one of the reasons why child sexual exploitation in Rotherham was allowed to proliferate for 16 years. But how much of a factor is this fear in the day-to-day work of social workers and others working to prevent abuse?
