Je denkt nu misschien:
Gedeeltelijke straffeloosheid voor politie bestaat hier al 3 jaar. Dat werd door politici van rechts tot links besloten, die in de fcking zelfde maand nog 'solidair' waren met #BlackLivesMatter ...
En ik schrijf hierboven dan wel 'gedeeltelijke straffeloosheid', maar er is eigenlijk maar weinig gedeeltelijk aan.
US surveillance firm’s charm offensive to UK councils and police forces
#US #surveillance tech firm Fusus has hired former police officers to aid in its charm offensive to #UK councils and police forces
US tech firm has been privately lobbying UK councils and police forces to scale up their surveillance using an #AI -powered platform used against #BlackLivesMatter protesters in the wake of #GeorgeFloyd’s murder, openDemocracy can reveal
#IbramKendi "allegedly" used #GeorgeFloyd as a come up. 🤷🏿♀️ It's a larger plan tho:
1.pick "educated" kneegrows who won't do anything
2.throw money at them and use them as a shield from criticism
3.write it off
4.kneegrows stay at the bottom👏🏻
Btwn #BlackLivesMatter, Shaun King, and #IbramKendi at #BostonUniversity, it's a mess. Mfks who refuse to acknowledge Yvette Carnell, Antonio Moore and #ADOSAF are in shambles.🤦🏿♀️We've all suffered bc black academics value their resumes over everything else

The "copaganda" epidemic: How #media glorifies police and vilifies protesters
"How the pro-police focus of #mainstream crime reporting misdirects policy discussions and blocks real solutions.
Last year, Project Censored identified news coverage of protests by #BlackLivesMatter as an egregious example of "News Abuse," the Project's term for distorted, misleading coverage of genuinely important news topics. Legacy and corporate media portrayed #BLM demonstrators across the United States as violent and chaotic, despite subsequent evidence that, in 97 percent of cases, protests were peaceful and nonviolent. At the time, alternative and independent media carried very different stories, some with headlines accurately describing "police riots."

#CopCity is a 100 acre #military facility being built outside of #Atlanta for the #APD. All of us distinctly remember chanting "build the #cops a military facility" while we marched for #BlackLivesMatter.
Special shout out to all of the #Democratic council members that voted to approve Cop City, please never march with or for #BLM ever again. You are not welcome.
Today my daughter's school had to evacuate because the police were told there was an "active shooter." I wrote about this in terms of my addiction to #whiteness and becoming fully human. Knowing that parents of children who are Black (often) have to have “the talk“ with their children, and how infuriating enraging how brutal that is.
And addressed to the EU Commission: "The EU must suspend all negotiations and financial payments to Tunisia until the displacements stop, the crimes against humanity are prosecuted and safe entry conditions to Europe have actually been created".
Tunisia is not yet on your list. Please read these articles and put it on the list:
How about the following demands: "The Tunisian Government must immediately stop the expulsions of Africans - especially to the desert - and prosecute the security agents who threatened and expelled the Subsaharians."

Survivors Of The Birmingham Church Bombing Say GOP Culture War Bills Are Trying To Erase Their History
"Parents rushed to the Sunday school classroom to check on their children and soon discovered that four young girls had been killed in the blast: Denise McNair (11), Addie Mae Collins (14), Carole Robertson (14), and Cynthia Wesley (14). More than 20 others were injured." #DomesticTerrorism #BlackLivesMatter
Today in Labor History September 15, 1963: Four members of the local KKK planted 19 sticks of dynamite in the Sixteenth Street Baptist church in Birmingham, Alabama. As a result, 4 young African-American girls died: Denise McNair, 11, and Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Addie Mae Collins, all 14. The outrage helped mobilize support for the Civil Rights movement. By 1965, the FBI knew who the perpetrators were. However, no prosecutions occurred until 1977. Others weren’t convicted until 2001-2002.

Any Canadians reading this thread should read this article:
After seeing the post from @QasimRashid, I realized I didn't know the history of racial segregation in Canada (aside from the "Indian" Residential and Day Schools).
TIL that the last _legally_ segregated school in Canada closed in 1983.
Friends, I was 3 years old that year. It's only 40 years ago. Michael Jackson's "Beat It" was on the radio. Dallas and Dynasty were the must-watch TV shows.
Canada's history of racial segregation has tried to hide in the shadows cast by the US. Let's bring it out into the light and face it and do something about it.
they know Twitter was fundamental to the #ArabSpring #OccupyWallStreet #Ferguson but most importantly, #BlackLivesMatter
BLM got us Trump and the record-breaking profits fueled by the scams, insider trading & pump & dumps of stocks, crypto and, with Trump, USGov that they hand-waved as fake-news

a new anarchist movement called anarcho-anti-capitalism. (an ancap) towards a self-sustaining culture of life! we oppose capitalism and work to dismantle it. even going as far as questioning the status quo and the values of modern imperial society. standing in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter, #landback, and others. we seek to de-center whitening experiences and build an egalitarian and anti-sectarian international society.
we don’t have any illusions that such a world would be perfect, by any means, but every reasonable person can agree that the capitalist colonizer systems MUST BE DISMANTLED and replaced with local autonomous systems. today we must boldly go where no leftist bastard has gone before. a world without capitalism.
daily reminder to punch Nazis; they have already chosen violence, their words have broken the peace. tolerance is not a paradox, tolerance guarantees the peace. coexistence is not negotiable. strike now and break confinement; alienation makes us weak.
otherwise, the capitalists win.
As Frank says:
> Social movements succeed. They build and they change the intellectual climate and then, when the crisis comes, they make possible things like agrarian reform or the New Deal or the Civil Rights acts of the 1960s.
"What police shrug off as mistaken identity never takes into account how it feels for someone to be treated as a criminal, to face police guns drawn and pointed, or the vulnerability of having one’s hands cuffed behind their back."
If this happened regularly to middle-class white people, radical police reform would have as much support as tax cuts.

In a recent interview, actor Tom Hanks lamented over the fact that it's only now that he's learnt about the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, which led to the destruction of what was known back then as Black Wall Street.
He said this made him very upset.
Mr. Hanks needs to get on Wikipedia for some much-needed history lessons that schools either gloss over or omit entirely.

In Alabama, a white-on-black attack and subsequent vigilante response encapsulates so much of America today: white privilege running amok and citizens of color believing it is up to them -- not law enforcement -- to stop racial violence. Can we please just focus on being good to each other and not -- you know -- having hate crimes?
