    I was looking for a place to put this so we could discuss but didn't really find a place that worked so I created this thread so we can all place articles, experiences, videos and examples of racism in the USA.

    This is one that happened this week. The lady even called and filed a complaint on the officer. This officer also chose to wear the body cam (apparently, LA doesn't require this yet). This exchange wasn't necessarily racist IMO until she started with the "mexican racist...you will never be white, like you want" garbage. That is when it turned racist IMO

    All the murderer and other insults, I think are just a by product of CRT and ACAB rhetoric that is very common on the radical left and sadly is being brought to mainstream in this country.

    Another point that I think is worth mentioning is she is a teacher and the sense of entitlement she feels is mind blowing.

    Too political for Saints Report
    ======================
    When a white, all-American NFL player from Cincinnati, Ohio, sits down to discuss why he has picked up and read a book on the black experience in America and admits he is embarrassed it has taken him so long, you wonder what the motivating factor might possibly be.

    A black, all-American NFL player from Norfolk, Virginia, it transpires. Zach Strief, of the New Orleans Saints, was a team-mate of Benjamin Watson for two years and admitted recently that it was only their friendship which caused him to put aside apathy and read ‘Under our Skin,’ Watson’s part-memoir, part treatise on race - a remarkable addition to the generally forgettable literature to have emerged from occupants of the locker room or dressing room.

    Dispensing with a match-by-match treatise on life as a ‘tight end’ at the Saints, the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns, Watson takes us on a journey through the myriad put-downs and pre-conceptions that are the daily reality of being a black player in a predominantly white sport.

    Like the young white drivers of the luxury Mercedes SUVs who shuttle players to and from training with hip hop music on the radio and who omit the N-word when they sing along to the lyrics. “We are in what black people call mixed company,” Watson writes. “I always wonder what the driver is thinking. I’m not naïve enough to assume they don’t recite the songs, word-for-word, when blacks aren’t present and honestly, I’m not mad at them for it. But I know there is an uneasiness when blacks are around…”

    Or the assumption, when he’d left high school for Duke University on academic merit, that he must have won an athletics scholarship. He wound up producing his academic certificates for friends to see, to prove he was there on merit. “I was supposed to be good at sports,” he writes. “The black kid was always supposed to be able to run fast and jump high.”


    Watson self-evidently doesn’t dance around the subject. He asked the driver to change the radio station. And he relates a conversation in which a Jewish team-mate tells him he thinks black people use the N-word to “embrace and neutralise the word.” Watson names a couple of Jewish slurs he has heard used and asked the team-mate if Jews used them among themselves to diminish their power. “No,” replies the team-mate.

    The level of detail is uncomfortable because political correctness programmes us not to enter these waters, but Watson approaches things with the knowledge of what his father and grandfather went through. The latter worked at the port in Norfolk, which was the intake point for German Nazi prisoners in World War II. If his grandfather required the toilet, it could not be the one that the Nazis and white workers used…..

     
    Three Valencia fans have been sentenced to eight months in prison for hate crimes against Real Madrid’s Vinícius Júnior, in what La Liga described as the first conviction related to racist abuse at a football match in Spain.

    The ruling goes back to a match in May last year during which several Valencia fans hurled racist slurs at the Brazilian footballer. The match came to a halt for several minutes as Vinícius pointed to a Valencia fan in the stands, telling his teammates that the man had called him a monkey and made the gestures of an ape.

    Images of Vinícius on the Valencia pitch, tears welling in his eyes, swiftly made headlines around the world, recasting a spotlight on Spanish football’s longstanding failure to tackle racism. While Valencia moved to ban the fans from the stadium, Vinícius vowed to fight on. “I will go up against the racists until the very end,” he said.

    On Monday, more than a year later, La Liga said that three individuals had been convicted over the racist abuse. They had been sentenced to eight months in prison, handed a two-year stadium ban and ordered to pay the cost of the legal proceedings. They had also been made to read a letter of apology to Vinícius, La Liga and Real Madrid, the league added.


    An agreement struck during the investigation cut their sentences by a third; if the individuals had not cooperated, they would have faced imprisonment lasting 12 months and a three-year stadium ban, according to La Liga.

    The defendants may not have to actually serve any time in prison; in Spain, a prison sentence of less than two years for nonviolent crimes does not usually lead to any time behind bars unless the offender has a previous criminal record.…….

     
    An all-white school board in Virginia has voted to restore the names of Robert E Lee and other Confederate military leaders to two public schools in a backlash to the racial reckoning that followed the police murder of George Floyd.

    The decision to restore the names of Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Turner Ashby was taken on Friday morning by the six-member school board in Shenandoah county. Only one of the members voted against the resolution.

    As a result of the vote, Mountain View high school will return to its pre-2020 name, Stonewall Jackson high school, and Honey Run elementary school will once again be named Ashby-Lee elementary school – honoring three men who were seminal in leading the attempt to secede from the Union in defense of slavery.


    The school board’s U-turn is one of the sharpest examples of a nationwide pushback by conservative groups against the changes that were made after the summer of protests in 2020 following Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis. At least 160 Confederate symbols were taken down in that year, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks such public emblems.

    Sarah Kohrs, a Shenandoah county resident and parent, said: “With the world watching, the Shenandoah county school board sent a terrible message.

    “We deplore the board’s decision to regress and ‘honor’ civil war figures that consciously betrayed the United States and were proponents of slavery and segregation,” Kohrs added.

    “This decision seems more about vengeance, control and hatred than heritage or due process. Looking ahead, the many good people of Shenandoah county will have to work even harder to ensure that our complete history, good and bad, remains available to students and the public. Our fight for what’s right is not over.”…….

    The Virginia NAACP and five students are suing a school board that voted last month to restore the names of two schools previously named for Confederate leaders, saying the decision creates a discriminatory educational environment for Black students.


    The federal complaint filed Tuesday says the reversal denies Black students an equal opportunity to education by forcing them to attend a school named after Confederate leaders.


    “It just feels like a huge step in the wrong direction,” said Briana Brown, one of the student plaintiffs, and a rising senior in a program housed in Mountain View High School. “And if we let them get away with this, what’s next?”


    The Shenandoah County School Board voted 5-1 last month to revert the name of Mountain View High to Stonewall Jackson High School. In addition, Honey Run Elementary School was renamed Ashby Lee Elementary School after Robert E. Lee and Turner Ashby.


    A previous board agreed in 2020 to remove the names of the Confederate military leaders amid a reckoning on race in Virginia and across the country after the killing of George Floyd.

    In recent years, school districts and other agencies across Virginia and the country removed the names of Confederate leaders from buildings as well as toppled statues and monuments……

     
    That's a crock of sheet. If ever there were people who deserved reparations, it would be the families of the victims of the massacre. I mean, ugh. That's just chicken sheet.
     
    A white man was charged with a hate crimeafter he allegedly punched a Black sixth-grade boy in Bellingham, Washington, while the student was on a field trip.

    Paul Jonathan Bittner, 42, was booked in Whatcom County jail on June 12 on charges of assault of a child in the second degree and malicious harassment, a hate crime offense in Washington, booking records show. His bail was set at $500,000.

    Court records, obtained by The Bellingham Herald, revealed that the unnamed 11-year-old suffered a chipped tooth.


    Students were walking to the Pickford Film Center on a field trip when “a community member physically assaulted and used racist comments towards one of our students,” the Whatcom Middle School principal Mischelle Darragh said in a statement.

    While the middle school students were walking on the sidewalk, Bittner crossed the street, approached the child, and “without warning,” pushed the student. Bittner then made a comment along the lines of: “Are you gonna talk to a white man like that?” The 42-year-old then punched the student, a Bellingham Police Department spokesperson told The Independent.……

     
    Hateful lettering and imagery appeared on a campaign sign featuring Maryland Democratic Senate nominee Angela D. Alsobrooks, prompting a police investigation.


    The defaced sign, which sits on a grassy median near a busy six-lane road in Prince George’s County, where Alsobrooks is county executive, had two additions in black ink: the letters “KKK” near her hands and crosshairs drawn on her forehead.


    Prince George’s County Police Department public information officer Brian Fischer said on Monday that police are investigating the incident.


    The markings are a concerning development in a Senate race that is grabbing national attention and could determine which party holds control of the Senate.


    Gina Ford, a spokesperson for Alsobrooks’s senate campaign, said Alsobrooks is aware of the defaced sign but noted that it will not stop her from campaigning.


    “Our paramount concern is Angela’s safety,” Ford said. “However, this sort of hateful threat will not deter Angela or her campaign.”……..

    Senior Vice President at The Walt Disney Company details discriminatory hiring practices: "Nobody else is going to tell you this, but they're not considering any white males for the job," says Michael Giordano, a Vice President of Business affairs, "there’s no way we’re hiring a white male.” Giordano reveals Disney uses "code words and buzzwords" to avoid legal action and even mentions a candidate being rejected for not looking black enough. Giordano also admits Disney gives bonuses to executives for practicing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), agreeing that "diversity helps with financial incentives." Giordano further claims he’s been denied promotions due to his race.
     
    As an aside- James O' Keefe?!? Jeebus.

    Anyway. Go to a post graduate graduation ceremony and you will see why us White guys are starting to lose the strangle hold.

    Go to the ceremonies and you will see almost all aren't from America. And a whole lot aren't dudes.

    My alma mater, Purdue, just announced they have 35% women in the incoming engineering class. It was three when I went in the late 90's.

    Despite what you hear from clowns, diversity movement in these highly successful multinationals is real and climbing the managerial ranks steadily not because they went woke. That is just dumb.

    No companies are going that way because those are the people who are excelling at work.

    Instead of complaining about how great it used to be women and minorities went and just flat out worked us. For less money.

    You know the fastest growing demographic of entrepreneurs? Black women.

    The harsh reality some don't want to face is a lot of us White guys are lazy and a lot of rest on the laurels of the Greatest Generation.
