AFL player Nic Naitanui is the boy in question’s idol and he has said nothing about the outrage that has been fanned predictably by white social justice warriors who have taken offence on his behalf.
I thought it would be interesting to take a racism test. As I am neither white nor black I thought I would make an interesting test subject for what they call an Implicit association test: Black and White race.
I am half Arab ( Lebanese ) and half European ( British and German. ) I look Arab, not European so I assumed that I didn’t see myself as being White. I have relatives with dark skin and very curly dark hair so what this test told me about myself was shocking. I expected that only someone who knew that they were prejudiced would get the highest score, not someone like myself who doesn’t see herself that way at all.
I was shocked by my result. I would be interested to hear what other people think of the test. I have never before taken a test that analyses you with this method. I would have liked it to break down what it was that I did that indicated the label they gave me. Was I too slow to make a decision? Did I make too many mistakes? How did they come to the conclusion they did about me? Read more »
In Britain Hate preachers spread hate with impunity. Muslim protesters hold signs threatening death to infidels who insult the prophet but when a British man says something hurtful to a woman on the street he gets sent to prison for 18 months? It is yet another example in Europe of truth being stranger than fiction.
...Prosecutor Lynne Shirley told the court that Hennigan stopped Ms Ford and asked whether she needed directions. Ms Shirley said: ‘It seemed a normal conversation and she walked off but as she did Hennigan said “I don’t agree with inter-racial relationships. I like natural. I prefer white children”. She said her children were natural and he said “I’m just saying”. The incident made her feel very upset, hurt, out of place and distressed.’
Hennigan sounds like a mule’s posterior, sure. The guy is undoubtedly a racist, yes. But that doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s been imprisoned for 18 months over “language.” Not terrorism, not violence, not theft… But mean words. Let that sink in.
Are you white and do you feel guilty? Then boy, do I have the thing for you! You can make reparations for the crimes of your ancestors by doing what the people of colour on this website ask you to do. But wait there’s more… blame yourself now and I will throw in a complimentary flogger for self flagellation!
At first glance it may not seem that bad to you. You may be imagining worthy charitable acts for people who have serious needs. A few of the requests may indeed fit the title charitable act but many do not. I also think that linking charity and volunteer actions to guilt and self hate for what your ancestors did is wrong. The woman who started this has called it a social experiment and it is. It is seeing how far she can push political correctness in order to take advantage of stupid white liberals.
Is the Olympic Team too white? That was yesterday. But let’s keep the theme going for a bit:
Auckland’s diversity not reflected in local government, writes Lincoln Tan.
Auckland may be one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world but nine in 10 elected representatives on the Auckland Council are white, a study has found.
Ethnic minorities are being urged to stand as local body candidates, after AUT University research found the 23 per cent who identify as Asian had just 1 per cent representation on the council.
The study looked at how closely Auckland Council representatives reflected the population, and looked at who stood, and who was elected at the 2013 elections. Read more »
An African-American police officer has written an emotional post on Facebook based on his experiences as a black cop in Florida. He works in the city of Riviera Beach that is known for its significant rate of black-on-black crime. He concludes that only the lives taken at the hands of cops or white people matter to most black people and, after reading what he wrote, I agree with him.
I have come to realize something that is still hard for me to understand to this day. The following may be a shock to some coming from an African American, but the mere fact that it may be shocking to some is prima facie evidence of the sad state of affairs that we are in as Humans.
I used to be so torn inside growing up. Here I am, a young African-American born and raised in Brooklyn, NY wanting to be a cop. I watched and lived through the crime that took place in the hood. My own black people killing others over nothing. Crack heads and heroin addicts lined the lobby of my building as I shuffled around them to make my way to our 1 bedroom apartment with 6 of us living inside. I used to be woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of gun fire, only to look outside and see that it was 2 African Americans shooting at each other.
It never sat right with me. I wanted to help my community and stop watching the blood of African Americans spilled on the street at the hands of a fellow black man. I became a cop because black lives in my community, along with ALL lives, mattered to me, and wanted to help stop the bloodshed.
People of which race and gender earn the most in America, do you think? If your answer is white men you would be wrong. Now ask yourself, which race and gender is most likely to be discriminated against when it comes to getting a university education in America? If your answer is black women you are not only wrong, you are not even in the ballpark. Black women are now the most educated group in America.
This morning, the Pew Research Center released a new report on how Americans are paid by race and gender — and boy, are there some bombshells for those interested in our nation’s wage disparities…
1. America’s top earners are Asian men
…All groups trail white men in earnings — except Asian men. They made 117 percent of what white men earned in 2015:
Last year, average hourly wages for black and Hispanic men were $15 and $14, while white men pocketed $21 and Asian men made $24.
With more evidence that liberals are more about dividing us than uniting us, an elite school in Manhattan has separated out white children for special racial indoctrination. Instead of actively promoting colourblindness where are all students are treated the same, they have gone out of their way to create a racial divide. Their lofty goal, of course, is to have the opposite effect, but even liberal parents are unhappy with their methods.
An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.
Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.
So what does a racist poster look like? Is it a poster where children of only one colour are shown as if the other colour doesn’t exist? Is it a poster showing children of two different colours but where only one colour is shown in a positive light? Is it a poster where cool and not cool are not divided evenly along racial lines?
Let’s look closely at the above poster and break it down numerically.
Question: How many white children have been labelled cool?
Answer: Two, one boy and one girl.
Question: How many white children have been labelled not cool?
Answer: Two, both boys.
Question: How many brown children have been labelled cool?
Question: How many brown children have been labelled not cool?
Answer: Four, three boys, one girl
On the basis of these numbers alone we can conclude that more brown children have been shown being labelled not cool than white children, and that no brown children have been labelled as cool at all. There is also a sexual imbalance, with boys overall of both colours being labelled uncool. Labels, though, do not represent the whole poster as it also shows responsible behaviour from brown children that is simply not labelled.
The most responsible job, the lifeguard, is shown as a brown child. Isn’t that cool? The lifeguard is a girl, isn’t that cool? Brown and white children are shown swimming together, happy and having fun while following the rules. Isn’t that cool? There may be an imbalance if you go only by the labels but isn’t that being a bit precious? Would anyone have said anything if the majority of the not cool labels were on white children? No, of course not.
Here is a racist poster to compare it with. What do you think? Are they both racist or is only one racist? If they are both racist, is the pool poster also sexist because cool and not cool isn’t evenly split between girls and boys?
