The world must act now

Postby mrswdk on Tue May 08, 2018 5:13 pm

The persecution and marginalisation of black people in America by the American government continues unchecked:

Protesters targeted a Philadelphia Starbucks on Monday after two black men were arrested last week when a store employee called police to say the men were trespassing.

The protests followed the release of a video that showed the two men being arrested after a store manager called the police because they were sitting in the store without placing an order. The two said they were waiting for a friend who arrived just as they were taken away in handcuffs.

Witnesses said the two were refused access to the bathroom because they had not made a purchase but that another customer had just used the bathroom without buying anything. Another said she had been there for hours without making a purchase.


As this government so brazenly abuses the rights of its citizens, when will the world finally find its voice and speak up against this mistreatment of their brothers?

Meanwhile tibetan monks are jailed for ne reason, or even killed in the illegal occupation of Tibet....

C'mon mrswdk, if you want justice, at least be impartial.

Or perhaps we need to revert to chinese labourers making holes in north american mountains for the trains to pass through.

Yeah well, mrsdwk was the reason why the site had to change the rules for the forum not to be named to specifically ban racial abuse. I even had to ask the mod team for permission to reference this stuff a while back, and it turns out they aren't his biggest fans, so it's ok.

So yeah, let's hope mrsdwk's threads about racism and child abuse get consigned somewhere else.

And yet it is the case- the no racist abuse rule was added for a reason. It really seemed to have pissed off the mods who wanted it to be more a free speech thing rather than mrsdwk's take of just calling African-American posters the N-word, over and over.

It's sort of nice that I got clearance for talking about this stuff- I can understand why people might just think that mrsdwk's posts about racism or sexually abusing kids would seem innocent if his positions had't been long part of the public debate over his posts before.

This happened like a month ago, right? Since then:

- The City settled with the two men for some large sum of money which the two men graciously asked the city to give to charity.
- Starbucks closed a bunch of stores for sensitivity training.

Seems like we got a decent result from a racist incident. I'm not sure the same can be said in other countries.

In London the police have taken a strategy of less stop and search. We can see the results but at least there's been no riots. Also in London, Victoria Climbie died because her social workers felt like they couldn't question her parents about bruises. Result she was horrifically murdered. These approaches are bad for black people but again the intellectual fools of the left are easily led. There has got to be a success story somewhere where black and white mix?

Stop and search hasn't ended:

A total of 8,525 of the searches were conducted in the capital in February (2018) — down from 11,406 the previous month.

Well if you want to be pedantic what do you think about the lessening of stop and search and the rise in murders?

The next big push for equality is structural racism. Much like the equal opportunities but on a higher level. Certain higher positions will have to have black people. This has got to be immensely good for black people.

I think there is no possible way to look at those two stats and assume they are connected - especially given you're talking about a difference over a very short space of time. For all we know, murders have spiked over the past few months and are just going to drop again.
