Cuccinelli: Statue of Liberty poem refers to people from Europe | TheHill
(warning: autoplay video)

Quote:
Ken Cuccinelli, the acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said on Tuesday that the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants to the United States was referring to “people coming from Europe.”

“Well of course that poem referred back to people coming from Europe where they had class-based societies,” Cuccinelli said of the inscription on the statue during an appearance on CNN on Tuesday. “Where people were considered wretched if they weren't in the right class.”
Also Jesus and Santa Claus are white.

Four black high school kids in Wynne, Arkansas were going door-to-door selling discount cards to help fund the high school football team. Upstanding whitie Jerri Kelly responded in the only rational, non-racist manner available to her under the circumstances by making the kids lie on the ground at gunpoint and wait for the cops to arrive.

The feel-good part of the story is that the cops, who all too often are more than happy to serve as racism concierges for dumbfuck white people, let the young 'uns go and arrested Ms. Kelly for aggravated assault, false imprisonment and endangering the welfare of minors.

This Veterans’ Day, let’s take a look at how our country has historically treated Black soldiers and veterans, going back to the Revolutionary War:

Thread by @michaelharriot: “Thread: Perhaps no other group of people in America exemplifies the disdain and racism America has for black people throughout history more …”

I’m not going to excerpt this, because there are too many great stories here. I know a lot of times people don’t click links here, but trust me – this one’s worth your time to read in full.

Meanwhile in Canada, well known hockey commentator Don Cherry opened his pie hole about brown people not wearing enough poppies. (Somewhat unfair characterization, but he spoke in dog whistle which makes it okay.)

Best satirical take:

Sportsnet reminds viewers of its zero-consequence-for-racism policy - The Beaverton

Note, Cherry's known for his loud suits.

I listened to a podcast today. It's a stupid comedy podcast about classic bad video games, which normally not something that would be posted on this thread.

No, it was a show about "Custer's Revenge" - the terrible :airquote:adult:airquote: game which the goal is to rape a Native American woman. It dropped this week (you know, the Thanksgiving show), and they invited a Native American on the show to play and discuss it.

:jawdrop2:

The guest (Joey Clift) called them out on this. To the hosts' credit, they both pretty quickly admit they totally fucked up, and eventually apologized. There was some decent discussion, but one of the things that stuck out to me is that the hosts' rationalization was they were hoping he could point them to better representation of indigenous people in media. Clift was very gracious in not reminding them that it's not his job to educate them about his culture.

You can listen to the show here.

Clift isn't the first person of color on the show, it's just that this is the first show in which they themed the show around the heritage of the person.

Apparently, they needed someone to point in any direction away from the fucking video game they were discussing.

Just in case anyone had a view of New Zealand as somewhere pleasant with enlightened attitudes such as recent willingness to ban assault rifles, here's an example of a type of racism that's pretty embedded in a section of our society.

Samoa is currently suffering a measles outbreak, which almost certainly came from NZ, where our vaccination rate has fallen, as it has elsewhere, due to the anti-vax/MMR/autism bullshit. Samoa, being underdeveloped, has a low immunisation rate, and 60 people have died of measles recently, most of them being young children.

One of our newspaper cartoonists - known for his other racist work - decided this tragedy was a suitable subject for a bit of levity. And the editor ran it.

I don't know who appalls me most in this outrage, the bank or the cops.

Indigenous man and girl handcuffed for opening bank account - BBC News

From the linkThe [Bank of Montreal] employee told Mr Johnson there were some "discrepancies" with the card [and] left to verify the IDs. Soon after she returned and he and his granddaughter went to retrieve their cards, two police officers arrived at the bank.

Mr Johnson and his granddaughter were handcuffed.
