The Racism Filter (Or, Reading Between Race Lines by Skimming Lines)

The Racism Filter (Or, Reading Between Race Lines by Skimming Lines) | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

You need to keep scrolling, reading; because if you don’t, your lack of attention is as bad as the lack of context. And then “Well done Tumblr. You posted a picture without context and made two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.” becomes “Well done lazy reader. You now think two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.”

Earliest Victim Of Child Abuse Seen In Ancient Cemetery

Earliest Victim Of Child Abuse Seen In Ancient Cemetery | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

A 2- to 3-year-old child from a Romano-Christian-period cemetery in Dakhleh Oasis, Egypt, shows evidence of physical child abuse, archaeologists have found.

 

...Whereas no particular fracture is diagnostic of child abuse, the pattern of trauma suggests it occurred. Additionally, the injuries were all in different stages of healing, which further signifies repeated nonaccidental trauma.

Egypt won't rent Pyramids to foreign firms, says antiquities ministry

Egypt won't rent Pyramids to foreign firms, says antiquities ministry | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The Egyptian antiquities ministry has rejected a proposal by the finance ministry to rent out the country's major archaeological sites to international tourism companies in an attempt to reduce the government's budget deficit.

 

Some archaeologists have called the proposal 'insulting' and 'humiliating.'

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

When austerity goes too far... Talk about a true proposed sell-out! This would have been far worse than the use of a Beatles song in a commercial or something.

Body Snatchers of Old New York

Body Snatchers of Old New York | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

There was a lot to be afraid of in New York after the Revolutionary War. Burned buildings loomed out of dark, crooked streets, which met at strange angles. Fights broke out in the taverns, while thieves lurked in the shadows. Families huddled in shantytowns constructed out of ships’ canvasses, while garbage piled high on the corners. The city watch was nothing more than forty men with clubs.


Besides the thieves and the brawls, people feared the medical students. The young men in black suits who studied at Columbia College and New York Hospital did as their teachers from England and Scotland had done: they learned anatomy by dissecting bodies stolen from the local cemeteries. In London and Edinburgh, a quasi-professional class of grave-robbers known as the “Resurrection Men” dug fresh corpses from the cemeteries of the poor and brought them to the medical school. In eighteenth-century New York, the medical students robbed the graves themselves, sneaking into cemeteries on cold, moonless nights and carrying wooden shovels to avoid the loud scrape of metal on stone.


But the bodies on the dissecting tables in New York often had a different hue than the bodies in Europe.

Was Hitler evil?

"Was Hitler evil?

 

Most White Americans will say yes: he killed 6 million Jews in the Holocaust! But to avoid any double standard we should apply the same moral reasoning White Americans apply to their own history."

I don't think the word 'evil' is helpful because that is a religious term.  

 

Would we say that someone born as a psychopath is evil? I suppose if one is religious they would say that.  

 

Psychopaths lack the neurophysiological “hardwiring” that enables them to care about people's feelings. 

 

Psychopathy affects approximately 1 percent of the United States general population and 20 percent to 30 percent of the male and female U.S. prison population. 


The danger in every community and nation is that it only takes one psychopath to get into a position of power (or get their hands on a gun) to end up doing massive harm.

Bogolan to Baghdad: Textiles Tell the Story of Genocide in Iraq

Bogolan to Baghdad: Textiles Tell the Story of Genocide in Iraq | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

In summer of 2006 I left my job working for Brown University's Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology to participate in a project in Iraq investigating mass graves for the Iraqi High Tribunal. My primary duty was analyzing "cultural objects" found in the graves of genocide victims. These objects included ballistic evidence, personal effects, and clothing. Clothing offered a particularly interesting window into the lives of the victims, revealing ethnic identity, gender, manner of death and more. Collectively and individually, clothing made a compelling line of evidence for telling the story of crimes against humanity.

The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking

The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

THIRTEEN years ago, researchers at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum began the grim task of documenting all the ghettos, slave labor sites, concentration camps and killing factories that the Nazis set up throughout Europe.

 

What they have found so far has shocked even scholars steeped in the history of the Holocaust.

 

The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler’s reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945.

 

...The documented camps include not only “killing centers” but also thousands of forced labor camps, where prisoners manufactured war supplies; prisoner-of-war camps; sites euphemistically named “care” centers, where pregnant women were forced to have abortions or their babies were killed after birth; and brothels, where women were coerced into having sex with German military personnel.
