#whiteprivilege

Doesn't apply when campaigning for anything which negates that privilege.

You must excersise your white privilege by burying your head in the sand to retain it.

Also in my FB feed I've got people who work in investment banking or finance for the same companies responsible for the sub prime mortgage crisis sharing explainer videos about systemic racism and economic inequality.

That's much more rage inducing than seeing a bunch of instagram himbos and thots recommending reading the Akala book or whatever.

TBH i’d prefer selfies to moralising, self-aggrandising social media posts from armchair activists who didn’t give a toss about black lives matter 2 weeks ago and probably won’t in 2 weeks time

Same darko - it does my head in too. People follow them to see their tits and they say ‘if you don’t want to hear my politics - unfollow’ I just wish everyone would do exactly that so they have to go and get a 9-5 like every other cunt that didn’t win the genetic lottery.

It feels like outside of football UK police see an excessive show of force as inflammatory and are aware of the negative consequences, whereas in the US you’ll see a platoon of hotdog-necked psychos wading into half a dozen people at the first sign of civil disobedience as a way of restoring authority.

EDIT- I seem to have had my mind momentarily wiped of that kettling period the UK police had and appear to have learnt from

You’re trying to reason with the angry man of FUK. Normally he gets it out of his system at boxing training. Did he mention he goes boxing training?

Disagree with this - the people responsible for gunning a man down in a tube station and then lying about it faced no consequences, and the person who led that operation now leads the metropolitan police force.

Might be better at crowd control but UK police very good at distributing extreme violence and/or covering up corruption when they want to.

This scandal in particular was disgusting and a real shame it had no more traction with the public.

Although you’re stating facts I was answering this assuming that it was in the context of response to civil disobedience. It feels like the police on the ground have dealt with some high-profile terrorist attacks, public opinion is with them, and they are broadly aware of the need to protect their image.

I get more out of finding about literature that they're (not) reading than I do out of seeing someone's face for the fourth time this week.

Get what you're saying, totally. I reckon they do have an us/them mentality though, evidenced by the way they cover up fuck ups pretty comprehensively, and they're used to the press following along and spinning their story (think Ian Tomlinson). I think this complacency could trip them up in the next few days/weeks, rather than the way the American police are just going hog wild very openly.

Mr X. - If I was Aboriginal I'd want to play the victim card too. Why not? It means extra dole over white people and it can never be cut off. It means guaranteed social housing. So I would just sit in my home I could never get kicked out of and drink all day too, maybe go out and cause some shit. Just like so many Aboriginals do every day. You get told you're a victim and financed to be it then unless you are very strong, like some Aboriginals, you will become a victim and live it, all your life. Aboriginals should be treated the same as every Australian by the government. Treating Aboriginals as victims is racism. It's keeping them down. You are too small minded to see this however.

Flaskett; The Somalian born police officer did the wrong thing. If the woman was black the outcome would have been the same. He was actually only convicted of 3rd degree murder, not first. And it took a year to even get it to trial. He's going to jail for maximum 12.7 years. For blowing away a woman who was calling the cops for help. Can you link me to these protests for the white woman?

I heard the Nigerian thing on Info Wars. There are a lot of rich Nigerians. "Racism" doesn't seem to effec them. Also 3 of the top 5 as per wikipedia are probably non-white, the other two (Australia and SA) don't strongly associate a race or colour with their country.

Top 5 median incomes by ancestory in USA according to Wikipedia (probably lies):

1 Indian American (2016) : $132,746 [1]
2 Australian American (2016) : $90,930[2]
3 South African American (2017) : $90,517[2]
4 Taiwanese American (2016) : $90,221[1]
5 Filipino American (2016) : $84,620[1]

Yeah I just said murder of any degree. With such a high bar to convict a police officer of murder, it's a really slow arduous process for the state prosecutor to bring charges. A year is certainly the norm. Bringing charges against the officer who killed GF after just 4 days is lightning quick.

I didn't go quite far enough back to when the Justine incident happened, but this is a protest after the guilty verdict was announced - https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2019/04/30/community-reacts-to-mohamed-noor-verdict-protest/

Has to be said though, for a multitude of reasons, all through this case the protests never reached the fever pitch seen with some of the other protests after police shootings that have happened here.

..just came across an article closer to when it happened that shows a video of one of the protests - https://www.startribune.com/cries-for-more-justice-at-vigil-for-justine-ruszczyk-damond/477460113/
you're right though, that coverage of the protests was certainly muted.

Yep, I'm in the All Lives Matter camp. I'm white, but I had a lot of shit in my life, including being stopped and searched by cops in Australia and Japan. Actually taken to a station in Japan for further questioning. Just coz of the clothes I was wearing and being alone in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thing is I can't claim racial profiling, I just haveta roll with the punches, coz I'm white. Maybe if all people had to roll with the punches they'd do better in life. I'm not rich but I got mine, I still rent but I got some cool Herman Miller furniture and some cool clothes and I'm still not permanent where I work but I keep working coz I know if I stop the system is going to take no mercy on me. White single man? Nah fuck you the systems gonna say. Maybe if the system said fuck you equally to everyone regardless of race or gender then we would have a a nation of stronger individuals, like me, who keep workin, paying taxes and keepin out of trouble…maybe..
