Native American Council Offers Amnesty to 220 Million Undocumented Whites

Native American Council Offers Amnesty to 220 Million Undocumented Whites | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
A council of Native American leaders has offered partial amnesty to the estimated 220 million illegal white immigrants living in the United States.

At a meeting of the Native Peoples Council (NPC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday, Native American leaders considered several proposals on the future of this continent's large, unauthorized European population. The elders ultimately decided to extend a pathway to citizenship for those without criminal backgrounds.

"We are prepared to offer White people the option of staying on this continent legally and applying for citizenship," explains Chief Wamsutta of the Wampanoag nation. "In return, they must pay any outstanding taxes and give back the land stolen from our ancestors.

"Any white person with a criminal record, however, will be deported in the next 90 days back to their ancestral homeland. Rush Limbaugh will be going to Germany. Justin Bieber will depart for Canada. And the entire cast of Jersey Shore will be returning to Italy."

Border Fences Make Unequal Neighbors

Border Fences Make Unequal Neighbors | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

There is one similarity between the Israel/Gaza crisis and the U.S. unaccompanied child immigrant crisis: National borders enforcing social inequality. When unequal populations are separated, the disparity creates social pressure at the border. The stronger the pressure, the greater the military force needed to maintain the separation.

World Bank Poised to Deny Africa's Indigenous Peoples Their Rights | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
The fight over indigenous peoples' rights in Africa is much larger than the World Bank, where its Indigenous Peoples Policy is applied infrequently. The greatest danger comes instead from the World Bank's image, for good or ill, as a global standard-...

Right-Wing Reaction to Mandela's Death Exposes Link Between Racism and Misogyny

Right-Wing Reaction to Mandela's Death Exposes Link Between Racism and Misogyny | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

If there was any doubt that the politics of the right are based in fear and resentment, the right-wing reaction to the death of Nelson Mandela laid it to rest, a moment that also laid bare the relationship between racism and opposition to the free agency of women.

Trayvon Martin’s Mother Speaks Out Against Stop-And-Frisk | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

“You can’t give people the authority, whether civilian or police officers the right to just stop somebody because of the color of their skin.”


"Over the past decade, New York police have stopped, questioned and sometimes patted down about 5 million people; 87 percent were black or Hispanic."

moniqueblog.net's curator insight, August 19, 2013 8:35 PM

I know this isn't "film or television," but this is important. 

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 20, 2013 6:21 AM

I'm so glad Trayvon's case didn't get five minutes of fame and then dissapear. The fact people realised how injust the trial was and are still stepping forward to speak out is incredibly important.

 

I would not only have a unit on laws (civics and citizenship), but also make mention of Trayvon Martin and other prolific cases on rasicm and rights during history units; as important cases like these need to be mentioned to educate!
