Racism

Don’t judge blacks differently

This is not a joke, it is not satire, it is a real website dedicated to easing White Guilt

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.

NZ Ferald’s latest project: Is XXX too white?

Is the Olympic Team too white?   That was yesterday.  But let’s keep the theme going for a bit:

Selection_001

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 »

Only the lives taken at the hands of cops or white people matter

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.

The race and gender that earns the most in America despite discrimination

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.

Elite school teaches young white children that they were born racist

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.

Is this poster “Super Racist”?

**UPDATED image of poster2016-06-27t12-12-35-6z--1280x720.nbcnews-ux-1080-600

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?

Answer: Zero

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?

Let’s talk about racism baby, let’s talk about you and me

Spanishbride PHOTO-supplied

I have been called white trash by a blogger whom nobody reads but, apart from him, everyone who meets me thinks I am from a non-white ethnic group. When I was at high school in the Bay of Plenty my two closest girlfriends had white skin. My two closest male friends had brown skin. I had olive skin  and thought nothing of it, because in the Bay of Plenty growing up there was no racism that I was aware of. We all just saw each other as people.

I didn’t become really aware of skin colour until the school holidays before I started university. I bumped into to my friend Tama at Ohope beach. I made some comment about my Lebanese heritage and he stared at me in surprise. “I thought you were Maori,” he said. Until he made that comment I had assumed that I was just like everyone else. I didn’t think of my friends in terms of skin colour or race.

Instead of discussing  skin colour, race and racism,  and whether or not it is possible to be racist towards a person with white skin,  I have put together a series of images. I hope that these images will get you thinking. I may not like all the different cultures in the world because they may value different things to me, but skin colour means nothing to me. We are all human and if you cut us we bleed. It isn’t our skin colour that divides us, it is our beliefs. Being labelled because of skin colour makes no sense at all.

Learning this one historical fact about politics explains so much about the Left

Until recently I was ignorant about the origins of America’s two main political parties. I knew that the Democrats were similar to our Labour party and the Republicans were similar to our National party. They have other parties but, because they do not have MMP, the tail never gets the opportunity to wag the dog like it does here in New Zealand.

So, many of the Democrat’s policies confused me because, to my conservative and libertarian eyes, they were patronising and racist. It turns out that there is a very good historical reason for the way they treat their Black American supporters.
