Gymnastics Ireland fails to apologise despite row over medal snub for black girl

Video of the event in March 2022 shows a judge handing out participation medals to a line of young gymnasts, but ignoring the only black girl. A photographer, coach and other officials look on without intervening, with an audience of hundreds in the stands.

Can you imagine how this poor girl felt? She is going to remember this demeaning experience her whole life.

Everyone who claims "it was #aliens" in reference to those who built such sites wherever they exist on #Earth is an ignorant #racist.

It was #humans; it's only ever been humans and humans alone.

"Nearly 2,000 years ago, #NativeAmericans built 800,000-square-foot geometric enormous circle and square aligning with the movements of the sun and the moon."

"They had to do it, to be the people they were."

Roger Ebert reprimands a #racist commentator and defends the freedom of the #arts and #artists at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.

"What I find very offensive and condescending about your statement is nobody would say to a bunch of white filmmakers, 'How could you do this to your people?' This #film has the right to be about these people, and Asian American characters have the right to be whoever the hell they want to be. They do not have to 'represent' their people."

"Despite studies showing #Black #immigrants are, on average, the most educated group of immigrants in the #UnitedStates, they earn lower wages than similarly trained non-Black immigrants and have the highest #unemployment rate of any #immigrant group.

An ethnic #racist asks, 'Why are Black immigrants doing better than African Americans?'

An ethnic #antiracist asks, 'Why are Black immigrants not doing as well as other immigrant groups?'"

How to Be an Antiracist, Ibram X. Kendi

"We practice #ethnic #racism when we express a #racist idea about an ethnic group or support a racist #policy toward an ethnic group. Ethnic racism, like racism itself, points to group behavior, instead of policies, as the cause of disparities between groups.

When Ghanaian immigrants to the United States join with White #Americans and say #AfricanAmericans are lazy, they are recycling the #racist ideas of #White Americans about African Americans. This is ethnic racism."

How to Be an Antiracist, Ibram X. Kendi

“Singular-race makers push for the end of categorizing and identifying by race. They wag their fingers at people like me identifying as Black—but the unfortunate truth is that their well-meaning post-racial strategy makes no sense in our #racist world. #Race is a mirage but one that humanity has organized itself around in very real ways. Imagining away the existence of races in a racist world is as conserving and harmful as imagining away classes in a capitalistic world—it allows the ruling races and classes to keep on ruling.”

How to Be an Antiracist, Ibram X. Kendi

"I do not use “#microaggression” anymore. [...] A persistent daily low hum of #racist #abuse is not minor. I use the term “abuse” because aggression is not as exacting a term. Abuse accurately describes the action and its effects on people: distress, anger, worry, depression, anxiety, pain, fatigue, and suicide.

What other people call racial #microaggressions I call racist abuse. And I call the zero-tolerance policies preventing and punishing these abusers what they are: #antiracist. Only racists shy away from the R-word — #racism is steeped in denial."

How to Be an Antiracist, Ibram X. Kendi

"...generalizing the behavior of #racist White individuals to all White people is as perilous as generalizing the individual faults of people of color to entire races. "He acted that way because he is Black. She acted that way because she is Asian." We often see and remember the race and not the individual.

This is racist categorizing, this stuffing of our experiences with individuals into color-marked racial closets. An #antiracist treats and remembers individuals as individuals. "She acted that way," we should say, "because she is racist."

#instagram says they have reason to believe I am under the age of 13 and my account is likely going to be deleted I am 36. These days I think I look older than that😅 ain’t no way anyone thinks I’m under 13. ithink this is just a way to suppress Black and Queer voices who are constantly speaking up against #whiteSupremacy
I’ve been called all sorts of #racist, #homophobic, and #transphobic and nothing ever seems to come of it. If I report them they’ll just decide it doesn’t go against community guidelines. If I clap back, I’ll get reported and thrown into ig jail. Something I’ve experienced many times. The only reason I’m sad is bc I have so many memories and experiences and instagram is the only place I can see them. Images of dead loved ones, or places I can no longer visit. I say all of this to say I think this may be the only space I turn to as a form of social media. I’m tired of fighting to exist in a space that was never actually welcoming to me anyway. #Queer #Gay #Black #GayMastodon #BlackMastodon

If you're not a #WASP, they want you to get the fuck out. It's not enough to not be on their #racist instance, they want us completely off here.

Here is a #parody of the controversial song with a super #racist video by #JasonAldean. #Aldean became known for filming a country video outside the #MauryCountyCourthouse, where a #black teenager was lynched in 1927. Aldean claimed this was not racist, and simply indicative of something that made no sense except as #racism.

'Proud to be misogynistic and racist': Grammy-winner blames 'Trump years' for country music exit

Regarding the genre, the singer-songwriter told the newspaper, "I thought I'd like to burn it to the ground

She added, "After the #Trump years, people’s biases were on full display. It just revealed who people really were and that they were proud to be #misogynistic and #racist and #homophobic and #transphobic."

The right likes to feign outrage, and insist that #whiteNationalist / #whiteSupremacist #violence is a myth being perpetuated by the left. But then, every time there's another white supremacist shooting, they immediately rush to #glorify the #violence and slander the victims, typically with #racist slurs. These people are vile, lying pieces of human garbage with no redeeming qualities. Their agenda is the promotion of #hate.

Fani Willis asks court to protect jurors after doxing in Trump's Georgia case

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis asked a judge on Wednesday to take steps to protect jurors who indicted former President Trump and over a dozen of his allies for their alleged attempts to flip Georgia's election results in 2020.

Willis said at least 23 jurors in the case have had their personal information — including their names, ages, addresses and vehicle details —posted anonymously on "conspiracy theory websites" hosted by a Russian company as part of an effort to "harass and intimidate them."

She and other members of her office were also #doxed, and their personal information was often "intertwined with #derogatory and #racist remarks," Willis said in the filing.
