Teammates: Allen used "N-word" in college

Full article under the cutCollapse )

Despite the sad fact that Americans refuse to recognize racists until they're bludgeoned in the face with tons of evidence of it, this story needs to garner tons of attention. 'Cause I'm pissed, and while punching people would be lots of fun, I think that cutting and pasting is more positive in the long run.

Sep. 24th, 2006 @ 02:40 am YAFers are at it again!
Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) is an ultra-conservative organization aimed at youth, particularly in college. The YAFers at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan are organizing (undisclosed time and location at the mo') the blatantly ignorant, racist and xenophobic "Catch an Illegal Immigrant Day" game, where a volunteer will pretend to be an illegal immigrant and students will spend the day looking for him (gender specified by YAF's publicity, not an assumption on my part). There are prizes for the one that catches the alusive immigrant. Isn't that just lovely? Basically the 2006 college-aged version of playing "Cowboys and Indians". And they're of course saying it's not racist because they don't mean Mexican when they say immigrant, and that the volunteer will probably be a white person.

I'd like to encourage folks to sign this petition calling for MSU's President Simon to stand against it and shut it down based on MSU's anti-harassment policy (details on the petition on how this applies). Usually MSU admin needs a little bit of a more 'legit' reason than just it's fucking racist.

For those of you with facebook accounts, check out these pages too:
People against 'Catch an Illegal Immigrant Day'
Catch an Intolerant YAFer Day

If you want more info on YAF's MSU's Chapter click here. The promotional video alone is worth it! Plus according to Wikipedia, MSU's chapter is one of the most prominent in the country. And by prominent allow me to give you an idea. While I was still at State whenever those "leftist scum" would hold events and rallies, 5-8 YAFers would show up with a bunch of American flags and their smug faces. They are definitely a sorry-ass reactionary group, but don't be fooled, they speak for hundreds that just don't have the guts to say the shit they do in public. And ignoring fringe groups, just gives them permission to grow, because it reinforces that they are not accountable for their bigotry.

From the promotional video, there is a still of a YAFer with a flag and a Coke bottle. That's taken during a rally in front of the administration building at the same time when Luis Adolso Cardona, an assylee from Colombia, was talking about watching his best friend (both men employees of the Coke bottling factory) be gunned down by paramilitary, as have others from that factory for demanding worker's rights and unionization. That, along with the constant laughter in the background, spoke volumes about the utter disrespect for life and humanity that YAF members hold for anyone that doesn't prescribe to their doctrine. Here's some info on the Coke Issue
Killer Coke
Article in Dollars and Sense Magazine
About Coke's habit of draining areas dry of water, particularly in India
A couple more anti-Coke links

I just can't begin to explain how much I despise this organization and the smugness of its members. They always show up with these cheeky grins on their faces talking about how they're not racist (that smile never leaving their faces) and how racist affirmative action is.

Sep. 12th, 2006 @ 10:44 pm OH NOES OPPRESSED
Current Mood: giggly*point and laugh*
From a white guy who replied when I basically passed on the message that I don't talk to white guys who think they're oppressed more than me:

"I probably am more oppressed, actually. She's riding on a wave of enlightenment where we are comubg(sic)* to accept previously oppressed people, but the WASPs are just getting thrown in the dust. Take from that what you will."

I'll take "Privileged White Whiny Men for 200," Alex.

*"coming", probably.

What fucking year is is again?! 9 children crammed into two seats at the back of the bus, but racism had nothing to do with it? Fuck that nonsense, we are not going to be going backwards folks. Can't handle the existence of all of us uppity educated darkies? Too motherfucking bad. Don't leave your house then, because if some shit like this happened to Rugrat? Ya'll wouldn't have to ask what happened to the bodies. And the next fucking person to make up some half assed scenario where they can delude themselves that this is maybe possibly not about race? Getting slapped in the mouth.

Current Mood: annoyedannoyed
From the damn AG boards (name removed to protect the stupid):

"I would like to see Queen Lateffa as Addy's Mom. (I know Addy's mom was thin, but I just think Lateffa has the soul to pull off Addy's Mother.) I am sure Hally Berry could do it also, but she is just too perfect. Addy's Mother has grit and lots of it."

Cause you know, those are the only black actresses worth anything. And "Lateffa" has "soul".

Y'all hear that ticky noise? That's my eye twitching again.

Aug. 11th, 2006 @ 03:28 pm No, you're not trying to change the topic at all!
Current Mood: aggravatedaggravated
http://community.livejournal.com/50bookchallenge/5192820.html?thread=9450868#t9450868

Why is it that every time people want to discuss white racism honestly--considering that whites have the power of societal racism that people of color don't--people want to turn and point about the mean old black people who are racially prejudiced as well, like we don't KNOW that there are some black people who are racial jerks too? Do these people also insist that we must discuss the smaller percentage of male rape when people talk about the pain of female rape or talk about the poor put upon men who may have to pay child support when we discuss abortion rights?

Sweet Isis, we don't always have to talk about the crows when the topic's on peacocks.

STFU.

Aug. 11th, 2006 @ 12:49 am WE CANNOT FUCK TO ONE COLOR.
Current Mood: enragedSTOP BEING STUPID!
The next dumbass to tell me that if we'd all interracially marry and breed, we'd eliminate racism once we're all the same color gets a SPIKED SHOE HEEL IN THE EYES.

Human skin color, unlike paint, does not become uniform through mixing over and over until you get a shade of grey. Because genes randomly shuffle. Skin color can vary drastically when two parents are the same race (see many black families with light and dark children); It can happen just as drastically in interracial relationships. Mixing ourselves up to get rid of racism won't work. There is no way we could fuck ourselves to one color. There would still be paler people and darker people, and discrimination based on that (I'm paler, I'm darker, etc etc etc).

Take, for example, these twin sisters with biracial parents.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Using the "fuck to one color" logic, they shouldn't diverge like they do, they should both be a tan color because both their parents are half black and half white. And yet, they DO.

Furthermore, if all it took to end racism was fucking to blend the races, then black and Native women with half white children would be progressives lauded by the anti-racist movement. And yet, NOT.

There are two tiers of justice in Canada.

One for aboriginals, and one for just about everyone else.

Take the latest racist shocker:

On July 22, a 14 year old aboriginal boy, Jordan, had a missing persons case filed. He was last seen with a convicted pedophile who has reoffended multiple times in the past, and was considered high risk to reoffend again. His main target, young boys. The man, Peter Whitmore, was friends with Jordan's family. They were on a trip, when Whitmore told Jordan's father it was okay to go back home to grab something he had forgotten, that he would 'take Jordan home'. It's been 2 weeks and he has not taken Jordan home. Jordan was filed as a missing person, but not much else was done, nor was there an investigation into who Peter Whitmore was.

On July 30th, Whitmore struck again. This time, on Sunday night a 10 year old caucasian boy disappeared from his home in Whitewood, Saskatchewan.

A nation wide Amber Alert was issued for 10 year old Zachary Miller, and the face of he and his abductor appeared on front pages across Canada, everyone desperate to find him.

The kicker? This uproar was never created for aboriginal Jordan. Even after it was revealed that the person who still had Jordan with him was a convicted pedophile who preyed on young boys, each paper was SPECIFIC in pointing out that the Amber Alert was only for Zachary Miller and that Police were not treating Jordan's disappearance as an abduction.

Now, following a standoff in Kipling, both boys have been saved. The papers are also very specific in pointing out that Zachary Miller is back home, and safe. Also, Jordan is with police. Should be returned home soon after "questioning".

Jordan's family is wondering why an Amber Alert was never issued for Jordan, nor was his case considered a kidnapping, NOR was the abductor even CHECKED, because if they HAD checked they would have realized right away, convicted pedophile. The police are saying that Jordan went 'willingly'.

What 14 year old would you hold accountable for going with the flow with a dangerous convicted criminal who may or may not have been assaulting him along the way? What 14 year old would you think REALLY had a choice?

Because there are two tiers of justice in Canada.

One for aboriginals.
One for just about everyone else.

I also recommend watching the "Not So Gentle Neighbor" video on the American Indian Movement website for those of you who are not familiar with it, especially if you're Native.
