Re: Video about xenophobia and hate

 

What are European Americans afraid of?
Are they afraid of additional consumers?

SPLC Wins $2.5 Million Verdict for Teen in Klan Case

On November 13, 2008, CNN's Jane Velez-Mitchell interviewed Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center to discuss the Center's civil lawsuit on behalf of 16 year-old Jordan Gruver.

 

Jordan, a US citizen of Panamanian and Native American descent, was targeted and brutally beaten by members of the Imperial Klans of America because they thought he was an "illegal spic."

 

On November 15, the all-white jury ruled in favor of the victim, ordering the Klansmen to pay $2.5 million in damages.

 

SPLC President Richard Cohen commented after the verdict, "We intend to collect every dime we can on the judgment and do everything within our power to put the Imperial Klans out of business."

I don't know if I should laugh or cry at this article.


The photo says "No Racism", but the author says:

 

"... “discrimination” against white males is necessary to counter hundreds of years of social, political and economic power that white males have been allowed to accumulate at the expense of everyone else."

I was telling my wife about this news and my daughter said "What happened?" I said "You don't need to know about racism and stereotyping now. You're too young." She says "I just want to know what price they charged." Finally my wife says: "$1.50 for the neighbors, $1.00 for Papy, and $.50 for me" Then Halle says "I guess they charged less because Latinos look the best." Then she said: "Everybody should get the lowest price."

Big Corporation: The Strategy of Racism

Big Corporation: The Strategy of Racism | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"I'm not saying that all republicans are racist. This is a moronic notion and I know for a fact that not all republicans are racist like I know all muslims aren't terrorists.

 

What I'm saying is that racism exists on the right and drives their social agenda.

 

But I'll let you decide for yourself. I'm not going to play "The Race Card". I'm going to let republicans talk and you decide if the left is just being slanderous and paranoid, or if the right really does have and has always had a problem with diversity and race."

Profiling’s Legal! Court Upholds Alabama’s Worst-in-Nation Immigration Law - COLORLINES

Profiling’s Legal! Court Upholds Alabama’s Worst-in-Nation Immigration Law - COLORLINES | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"The Department of Justice and other groups argued that Alabama violated the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, which says that federal law takes precedence over state law, and that Alabama “pre-empted” federal immigration laws by attempting to create its own statutes and enforce them on its own. Traditionally, only the federal government has had the right to write and enforce immigration law, and Alabama had no right to step into this territory, the DOJ argued."

 

“Not only will we appeal the court’s decision, we will also mobilize and organize Alabamians to repeal this law and stand up for immigrant justice,” Isabel Rubio, executive director of the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, said in a statement. HICA is also a plaintiff in the case."

Using the word European-American makes European-American's sound like foreigners. (Which they are - but European-Americans don't want to have a foreign sounding label. Another issues is that using the word "White" is perpetuating a false brand of purity, goodness, and cleanness.

Bachmann: Asian Exclusion Act Worked "Very Well"

Bachmann: Asian Exclusion Act Worked "Very Well" | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"I guess the part of that law that Bachmann missed was that it was enacted specifically to keep people of certain races/ethnicities/national origins out of the United States. Like so many U.S. immigration laws, this particular law that was in place until the 1960s — National Origins Act and the Asian Exclusion Act — gave preference to European immigrants.
So, again, if you don’t think immigration affects you personally, ask yourself whether discriminating against people based on their race does, then I think you might understand how immigration matters to you."

Do Republicans Really Believe That We Should 'Let Him Die'?

Do Republicans Really Believe That We Should 'Let Him Die'? | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"The audience in the recent GOP presidential candidate debates is making almost as much news as the candidates themselves. Whether it is cheering the number of death penalty killings in Texas or yelling out 'Yes' when the moderator asked a candidate if he would let a person without insurance die rather than provide emergency room care ... the GOP appears to have gone wild.

 

One woman -- Susan Grigsby -- was moved and quite hurt by the 'Let Him Die' incident at the GOP debate. She shares her personal insights on the issue ... and wonders why all of the GOP candidates were silent on the matter"
