Fighting the racism that killed George Floyd requires more than hashtags
White people must understand that true solidarity is helping the cause when it’s not fashionable to do so

Every few years, being black becomes a macabre spectacle. What is usually a complicated private identity becomes a public one. A black man is killed by a white police officer in the United States, and suddenly the world is attuned to your race.

Suddenly, the world is trying to help. It’s trying to amplify black voices. It’s posting Martin Luther King and Malcolm X quotes and videos. It’s donating money. It’s circulating videos of black protesters and black media voices.

From the piece:
Because this is the easy part: no matter how much effort has gone in to making sure you are the right sort of ally, no matter how much money you have donated or supportive feeds you have curated. For white people in America, there is no solidarity that is not received without a heavy dose of scepticism. The frequency of black men and women dying at the hands of white police officers tars a whole nation, not just a police force – one that is so empowered only because of the systemic complacency and normalisation of black murder. Those officers who kill are not all flukes, they’re not all “bad apples”. A black man would not end up under the knee of a white officer for almost nine minutes if a black life mattered.

These people need to maintain the white people oppressing black people narrative. It's their meal ticket.

"White supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID-19," they wrote.

White supremacy is now a biological weapon, watch out!
NPR used to at least keep a mask on an pretend at neutrality and civility; any bias was usually just implied. The last decade for them has been them slipping into the abyss. RIP

So the BBC has an article on an up and coming Vogue magazine that is to picture 3 people that represent all of the key workers across the country. They are:

A white female
A black female
A Muslim female

All 3 from London

Dat representation.

"They represent the millions of people in the UK who, at the height of the pandemic, put on their uniforms and went to help," Vogue's editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said."

This is emphatically not true. It's insultingly not true.

Let's pop to that massively biased and untrustworthy website, GOV.UK for a gander:





Vogue's efforts are the very opposite of what their 'inclusive' grandstanding purport to be.

How can this be? I thought the London police had seized all the rusty sporks and other household junk drawer items.

I wonder if the people who run the camera are given special training for stuff like this. Reporters get assaulted a fair bit or are in dangerous areas.

I was going to question those stats. 20% of the Yorkshire and humber being Pakistani while only 10% are white?

Outside of Leeds, Bradford and Dewsbury, you won't find many Asians. South Yorkshire is majority white, as is North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire is inbred and Polish.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong?
