@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP Well quite. So why everyone waiting for him to get permission to go out and play? He seems uninterested in letting us out to play. Lol. Seriously, there is actually a problematic paternalistic dependency here.Malcolm X Movement @mxmovement • 17 Jan 12:44 GMT
@HywelRoberts2 All very well said.
This is systemic.
I terminated my TV licence. I am no longer funding this cultural poison.
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @tisy47 @edwardpoole1975 1/2. If a white man attacked me shouting "n*gger" it is obvious ... But if I was in a pub & this white person wouldn't serve me or just ignored me; it is subtle by as devastating
The later is insidious but more difficult to police & more embedded in societal attitudes & culture
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @tisy47 @edwardpoole1975 1/2. I get what you are both saying. However, I strongly believe that it is not nice to tar all people with the same brush just bcus of an accident of birth or racial background.
Assumptions can lead to wrong conclusions and stereotypes. What happens if the assumption is wrong?
@tisy47 @edwardpoole1975 That's very defensive. Like the man in the video above.
Do you really believe a person identifying as White, exposed to the cultures of SA and UK, could not be 'racist'?
I don't know of this hidden British racism. But I know about people who try to hide their racialist biases.
@edwardpoole1975 But what if you were to leave her & your association with her out of it & talk about yourself & your own difficulties to accept people's accounts of 'racism'.
Or your experiences of 'racism' as the beliefs & thoughts that occur in your head.
@Jackiew80333500 @IanMartin55 @itvpeston @sowetokinch @stormzy Well said.
The term racism has been rendered pretty unhelpful a lot of the time due to the backlash again initiatives for social justice.
I think if we start to name Whiteness and White Supremacism as the problem, the conversation and agenda is less likely to be derailed.
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @jewssf @TomLondon6 All the obvious stuff left wing Jews and antisemitism experts have been saying all this time. Eg the smear campaign is more likely to harm the fight against antisemitism. That the IHRA doc is unsuitable for discipline. That the BoD don't represent most/all British Jews.GreenAndRedTed ☮️🦊🦈🌳🌗🌍 @OutriderTed • 16 Jan 08:17 GMT
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @GaryJoseph71 represented on TV but I also want to see the rest of my family represented. It's sad to say that a mixed race actor/ress will be cast as a black character over an actual black actor/ress. It's about who is responsible for making these decisions and why. 2/2May @maylangslow • 15 Jan 01:28 GMT
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @GaryJoseph71 There is no simple answer there is however significantly more mixed race people in the UK than black people. Also most mixed families dont even look like the ones they depict but representation has to start somewhere. So yes I am happy that my children will see themselves 1/2May @maylangslow • 15 Jan 01:22 GMT
@davidgraeber Fair point, we are all complicit on some level, to some degree.
They can and should but I will too. I don't think it's doctrinaire to judge others. I think it's unavoidable.
Jones and Monbiot have done some terrible flipfloping as Guardian employees.
@tammilyh @Thosi43314438 @SholaMos1 @thismorning Unfortunate and also quite fortunate for those who reap the advantages of racism-white supremacy while trotting out fragile 'not all us' lines like this one.Competitive Co-operativism @WSDEs_vs_IWSCP • 14 Jan 09:06 GMT
@Africarevolt Isn't the idea of whiteness of skin (when talking about the colour pink) and blackness of skin (when talking about the colour brown) also an example of mental colonisation?Competitive Co-operativism @WSDEs_vs_IWSCP • 14 Jan 08:52 GMT
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @SocialistBooksy I should have been specific that its the Board of Deputies, but I would not restrict discussion if other Jewish groups got involved. I personally would not get into the "Non Jewish" Jewish groups stuff. That's for the communities to resolve themselves.((Almost)) Always Positive + @NubiBlue • 14 Jan 06:28 GMT
@WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @SupremeLordbot @SteveWickens1 @Charliecondou @SholaMos1 Do train tracks make up for the fact that the Jallianwalla Bagh massacre took place where General Dyer took cannons into a peaceful rally and mowed down all including women and children? That Churchill caused the Bengal Famine? Endless atrocities and plundering of resources.Stand Up for Democracy @up_democracy • 14 Jan 00:07 GMT
@SupremeLordbot @WSDEs_vs_IWSCP @SteveWickens1 @Charliecondou @SholaMos1 Awful standards of living. In Asia living conditions are far superior for well off urbanites. Did you have domestic staff, chauffeurs, beautiful homes with multiple en-suite....many there do. They would find it shocking how most Brit homes have only a single bathroom.Stand Up for Democracy @up_democracy • 13 Jan 23:22 GMT
