From globalpolitician.com :

I had written much of this essay more than a year before I finally decided to post it online. A couple of personal experiences brought me onto the subject of non-white racism. I hesitated to post it, mainly because I instinctively dislike writing about anything related to race. I was brought up that way. Partly, I also convinced myself that I was first and foremost against Islam, and that writing about skin color would only complicate this fight.

However, after thinking about it for some time, I find that none of these arguments hold true. I am tired of ideological censorship. Western nations can never mount a defense against Muslim immigration if this is always dismissed as “racism.” But above all, if you believe that non-white racism exists, it is actually immoral not to deal with the problem and its victims. I am convinced that not just non-white, but also anti-white racism, are real and underestimated phenomena.

In London, an elderly driver who had a heart attack careered into a bus. Here you had a dying man, people trying to save him and police trying to clear the scene. Meanwhile, black youths at the scene just wanted to fight the cops. They shouted, ‘Who cares — it’s just a white man’.”

In September of 2006, TMZ.com had an article on their site that was entitled “Oprah Lords Over White Folk, Talks Poop on XM.” In this article it talks about how Oprah brags with her friend Gayle King on XM satellite radio about how she has an almost all white staff, and calls them “good white folks.” More recently, it seems that the Oprah’s racism is demonstrated through her girls school that was opened in Africa which is almost exclusively an all black school. When asked about this she claims that she does not have to appease the white people in the country. Yet, in another news clip she declares that she will not rest until every ‘black boy’ and every ‘black girl’ has had a chance to prove their worth.

Zimbabwe’s White Farmers Face Government Land Grab in Attempt to Ethnically Cleanse the Country February 7, 2007

The last remaining white farmers in Zimbabwe are resisting a government deadline for them to leave their land. Many of the 400 farmers had until the weekend to hand properties over to new black owners or face prosecution.

But the Commercial Farmers Union (CFU) has advised members to resist – saying arrest and prosecution is their only way of getting a hearing in court. Zimbabwe’s food production has plummeted since land reforms that saw thousands of white-owned farms seized.

A government deadline for almost all the remaining farms to be transferred lapsed on Saturday. But CFU official Emily Crookes said the farmers hoped they would be allowed to stay on to harvest their crops – as President Robert Mugabe has promised. “Some farmers are still a bit anxious about what the future is going to be,” she told AFP news agency.


Black-on-white Halloween attackers get probation, house arrest February 4, 2007

In a decision that shocked both sides – and left the prosecutor in tears – a Los Angeles County judge yesterday released four black teens to their parents to serve 60 days of house arrest for the severe beating of three young white women on Halloween night. The attack on Laura Schneider, 21, Michelle Smith, 19, and Loren Hyman, 19, which occurred in in the Bixby Knolls section of Long Beach, was carried out by a large group of black teens – as many as 30, according to reports. The upscale neighborhood is known for lavish Halloween displays and has long attracted crowds.

Ten teens were charged in the attack. All maintained their innocence throughout the trial. Juvenile Court Judge Gibson Lee [ (562) 491-6159  (dept. 246) ] found nine of them guilty last month.

“Perhaps the only thing worse than suffering 13 facial fractures was seeing my friend Laura lying on the ground lifeless,” Hyman told the court earlier this week, as victim-impact statements were offered before sentencing.

Schneider suffered a concussion after being struck by a skateboard when someone yelled out a racial slur.

Hyman, who was scheduled to have 4 1/2-hour facial reconstruction surgery yesterday, sustained multiple fractures in her nose and around her eye.

“I hope they’re still in jail when our injuries are finally healed,” Schneider said.

Both asked for “the harshest punishment possible” for the nine minors, saying they had done nothing to provoke the beatings and have been scared to leave their homes ever since.

But the sentences for the first four of the defendants issued yesterday were far from harsh. Instead of the nine months in probation camp Deputy Dist. Atty. Andrea Bouas had requested for three of the teens, Gibson sentenced them to probation until age 21, house arrest for 60 days and 250 hours of community service.

Emotional pleas from three white young women attacked by a mob of black teens on Halloween were made Wednesday to Long Beach Superior Court Judge Gibson Lee.The victims – who were attacked by a group of 20 to 40 youths who yelled racial slurs, pelted the young women with with fruit and pumpkins, then beat the victims to the ground using fists, feet, a skateboard and tree branches – implored the judge to give the harshest sentence possible for the nine teens convicted in the case.

The victims talked about the pain they endured the night of the beatings, as well as their struggles to recover from ongoing injuries.

In addition to the physical scars, they described psychological torment triggered by the attack and exacerbated by the contentious and lengthy trial.

Loren was the first of the three victims to address Judge Lee Wednesday.

“It is a terrible feeling to enter that courtroom and be surrounded by the defendants and then treated by the defense like I am a criminal,” Loren said. “I was completely honest on the witness stand, and my reward was being called a liar by the defense … it’s an insult to my character.”

The Press-Telegram has opted not to identify the victims,

the witnesses and those accused in the attack out of concern for their safety.

The 21-year-old was followed by her friends Laura and Michelle, both 19, who addressed the court for the very first time when giving their impact statements.

“Perhaps the only thing worse than suffering the 13 facial fractures was watching my best friend Laura lying on the ground, lifeless, while being beaten and kicked and being helpless to stop it,” Loren said, starting to cry.


Pleasantville school official alleges reverse racism by school board January 31, 2007

A longtime school district official is suing the Board of Education for alleged reverse discrimination, claiming the board puts race above qualifications in its hiring practices. Ben Mora, who is white, claims the board has “demonstrated a clear pattern of discrimination against Caucasians and in favor of minority candidates for key administrative positions over approximately the last 15 years,” according to the lawsuit filed last week.

Mora is currently the district’s director of funded programs.

“They’ve been looking past objective qualifications, including the minimum legal requirements, and hiring people who aren’t qualified for these positions based, apparently, on their skin color,” said Clifford Van Syoc, who is representing Mora. “It’s wrong. It’s unlawful.”

None of the past five superintendents has been white, and the district went 15 years before hiring a white candidate as a principal at any of its schools, the suit claims.

Board President Jayson Adams said he has not seen the suit, but defended the board’s hiring practices, saying there is no discrimination. “If there’s an accusation of reverse discrimination in the school district, overall the highest-paid administrators are not minorities,” he said.


Opposition call for Justice minister to resign over refusal to appoint White judges January 28, 2007

Opposition parties have called for the resignation of Justice Minister Brigitte Mabandla, and accused her of racism and of sabotaging the judiciary for her refusal to appoint white male acting judges in the Free State to fill temporary vacancies.

The Democratic Alliance, Freedom Front Plus and the Inkatha Freedom Party warned yesterday that Mabandla’s refusal will further serve to hamper the sound administration of justice and lead to further backlogs in the Free State court.

Mabandla’s ban on the appointment of white judges in the Free State, which was reported earlier this week, sent shockwaves through the opposition, with the DA’s Justice spokeswoman Sheila Camerer accusing her of putting “politicking around transformation issues ahead of sound justice administration”.

The IFP’s Justice spokesman Koos van der Merwe said yesterday that Mabandla has demonstrated, through the ban, that she is racist and that she has no regard for the judiciary.

“This is not the first time that racism has reared its ugly head in the appointment of judges,” Van der Merwe said in a statement.

“We vividly remember how advocate Geoff Budlinder SC, a staunch ANC supporter, was refused an appointment as a judge simply because he is white. We also remember the words of Judge Cachalia, referring to the lack of skills of judges, when he said: ‘our chickens are coming home to roost’.” (more…)

SAYAR’s Anti-Racism Website Proves To Be Racist January 24, 2007

A anti-racism website that is being linked to by digg.com and other big peer submitted news websites lately is unfortunately racist itself. The website by ‘Students and Youth Against Racism‘ published an article called “WHY DO RACISTS HAVE LOW IQs?” Yet, in this article they use the racist ideology that all racists are exclusively White/Caucasian and then resort to using distinctly racist statements. We believe the best way to demonstrate this organizations true racist beliefs is to quote directly from their website. The following are all quotes from SAYAR’s website:

Many studies have explored the psychology of racism and the familial and social backgrounds of racists. Some interesting generalities can be extracted from these studies, including the fact that racists tend to be conservatives, conformists, Republicans, and hypochondriacs. The high incidence of conservatism, conformism, and Republicanism are all related phenomena. That is, one would expect a conformist to be a conservative, and a conservative to be a Republican, and a Republican to be a conformist, etc. But, why would they tend to be hypochondriacs? Perhaps they blame their body parts for imaginary illnesses in the same way they blame parts of society for imaginary social illnesses.

The arguments of racism have been demonstrated time and again to be illogical and irrational. For example, racists claim that so-called white people are “superior” to so-called black people. Ignoring for the moment the inability of science to draw a sharp line between those who are subjectively considered to be white and those who are subjectively considered to be black, lets consider the claims of superiority by racist supremacists. As we look around us in America today we see a country full of diversity in which American blacks and other citizens of non-European descent excel in all the arts and sciences, in all aspects of business, in all political arenas, and in all athletics and other social activities. From our military commanders, to our religious and political leaders, to our star athletes both Olympic and professional, to our fastest-growing independent businesses, and in all genres of the entertainments fields — art, music, acting, directing, film-making, etc. — we witness a growing disproportionate dominance of non-whites, and this in spite of centuries of oppression and the continued denial of equal opportunities. Their successes are undeniable and ubiquitous, and yet the racists of our times act as if they are completely blind to this manifest proof that superiority of whites is a dying mirage.


Congressional Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed January 24, 2007

As a white liberal running in a majority African American district, Tennessee Democrat Stephen I. Cohen made a novel pledge on the campaign trail last year: If elected, he would seek to become the first white member of the Congressional Black Caucus.Now that he’s a freshman in Congress, Cohen has changed his plans. He said he has dropped his bid after several current and former caucus members made it clear to him that whites need not apply.

“I think they’re real happy I’m not going to join,” said Cohen, who succeeded Rep. Harold Ford, D-Tenn., in the Memphis district. “It’s their caucus and they do things their way. You don’t force your way in. You need to be invited.”

Cohen said he became convinced that joining the caucus would be “a social faux pas” after seeing news reports that former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-Mo., a co-founder of the caucus, had circulated a memo telling members it was “critical” that the group remain “exclusively African-American.”

Other members, including the new chairwoman, Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, D-Mich., and Clay’s son, Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., agreed.

“Mr. Cohen asked for admission, and he got his answer. … It’s time to move on,” the younger Clay said. “It’s an unwritten rule. It’s understood. It’s clear.”

The bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, a House aide said, but no non-black member has ever joined.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who is white, tried in 1975 when he was a sophomore representative and the group was only six years old.

“Half my Democratic constituents were African American. I felt we had interests in common as far as helping people in poverty,” Stark said. “They had a vote, and I lost. They said the issue was that I was white, and they felt it was important that the group be limited to African Americans.”


Racist and Violent anti-Australian YouTube Videos Get Another Look January 24, 2007

[Update] Related Story: Racist Lebanese Rappers Sing About Killing Australians

A YouTube video that glorifies notorious gang rapist Bilal Skaf shows there’s a small, antagonistic sub-section within the Lebanese Muslim community, Prime Minister John Howard says.

Mr Howard today described the video as a “shocking exercise”.

“It’s a reminder that there is undoubtedly within a section, a small section, of the Lebanese Muslim community a group of people who are antagonistic to the values and the way of life in this country,” Mr Howard told the Nine Network.

A YouTube user today removed from the website several of the controversial videos, including the Skaf one, called lebo thugs, and another that shows a man being bashed by a gang.

The NSW Premier, Morris Iemma, said this morning that police and the Education Department would investigate whether lebo thugs included images of any current Sydney school students.

A police spokesman said the video will be sent to the NSW Police Legal Services Unit, which will establish if there are any charges arising out of the footage.

He also said the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad and the Counter Terrorist Unit had been informed and police would be making inquiries with the Department of Education.

The three-minute video is backed by a rap song and includes an image of Skaf with a rifle on his lap, footage of a Cronulla riot revenge attack, a photo montage of a group referred to as the “Soldiers of Granville Boys”, and a map of Australia in the colours of the Lebanese flag with the words “under new management” scrawled above it.

Another scene shows a Granville Boys High School shirt with a knife placed on it.


Racist President Hugo Chavez to U.S.: ‘Go to Hell, Gringos!’ January 21, 2007

President Hugo Chavez told U.S. officials to “Go to hell, gringos!” on his weekly radio and TV show Sunday for what he called unacceptable meddling after Washington raised concerns about a measure to grant Venezuela’s fiery leftist leader broad lawmaking powers. The National Assembly, which is controlled by the president’s political allies, is expected to give final approval this week to what it calls the “enabling law,” which would give Chavez the authority to pass a series of laws by decree during an 18-month period.

On Friday, U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey said Chavez’s plans under the law “have caused us some concern.”

Chavez rejected Casey’s statement in his broadcast, saying: “Go to hell, gringos! Go home!”

Chavez, who was re-elected by a wide margin last month, has said he will enact sweeping reforms to remake Venezuela into a socialist state. Among his plans are nationalizing the main telecommunications company and the electricity and natural gas sectors.

About a month after members of the Duke lacrosse team were falsely accused of raping a stripper last year, 88 members of the Duke faculty fanned the flames of hysteria by signing a letter announcing that they were “listening” to students “who know themselves to be objects of racism and sexism.”

Maybe they should have been listening to the accused, several of whom had iron-clad alibis. Now the professors are going to need a new example of “racism and sexism” at Duke since their case in chief has turned out to be a fraud.

In lieu of a gang rape perpetrated by high-stepping white male athletes against a poor black woman, the Duke lacrosse case has turned out to be another in a long string of hoax hate crimes in which whites are falsely accused.

The lacrosse players denied that any rape had occurred and immediately submitted their DNA to the state, confident that the DNA would prove them innocent.

It did: Not a trace of DNA from any of the lacrosse players was found on the accuser, though this girl had more DNA in her than a refrigerator at a fertility clinic.

She had DNA from five other men, which ought to have raised suspicions about her story that she had not had sex with anyone for the week before the alleged gang rape. Well, that was one of the several versions of events the accuser has offered police to date, although my personal favorite was the one in which Elvis came back from the dead and sexually assaulted her. (I think that was version No. 3—I’d have to check my notes.)

This is the second time this woman has accused a group of men of gang-raping her. One more time and it’s officially considered a hobby.

JACKSON, Miss. A government witness has testified that Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Ike Brown and his associates exploit racial tensions, using fraud and racial slurs to disenfranchise minority white candidates and voters.

The testimony came today (Wednesday) in the federal government’s first use of the Voting Rights Act to allege racial discrimination against whites.  Theodore Arrington, a political science professor at the University of North Carolina and expert witness for the Justice Department, says the situation in Noxubee County was similar to the disfranchisement of black voters in the racially segregated South of the past.

Arrington says Brown and his associates do not uphold the law and customs that prevent bias and fraud in the administration of the Democratic primary, which is tantamount to elections in Noxubee County.  The government alleges Brown and others allow unqualified black candidates to run in Noxubee County elections.

A Bronx man says he was mocked and ignored by two MTA workers at a subway station.

Anthony Sutherland, 33, who is white, says the workers, who were black, refused to serve him. He says he was standing at the token booth at the Nereid station on the 1 and 2 subway lines for nearly ten minutes.

Photos courtesy Anthony Sutherland.

Sutherland says he approached the booth at 8am Friday morning and noticed “Black Power!” written on a dry-erase board behind the ticket agents.

After he asked them to erase the sign because -he says- it offended him, they mocked and mimiced him and laughed.

After several minutes, Sutherland says they did finally issue him a MetroCard.

After he began walking away, Sutherland decided to snap some pictures of the sign with his cell phone camera. It was then, he says, the agents turned off the booth lights, and yelled  “no pictures.


White Red River Parish deputy claims racial discrimination to blame for his termination December 21, 2006

COUSHATTA — A fired Red River Parish sheriff’s deputy says his termination last week is the result of reverse discrimination.

Alvie Myers, who is white, claims his dismissal on Dec. 15 was instigated by black deputies in leadership positions who disagreed with his arrest last month of a black man. But Sheriff Johnny Ray Norman, who is white, said Myers was fired for violating office policy.

“I don’t know what he’s alleging; that’s up to him,” Norman said. “He was terminated because he broke our policies and procedures.”

Norman asked the Louisiana State Police to investigate Myers’ handling of the arrest of Sherman Newton Jr. However, Norman fired Myers before a State Police investigator fully completed his inquiry. The outcome of the state probe has no bearing on Myers’ employment status, Norman said.

“They’re investigating the criminal part to make sure the man’s rights were not violated or excessive force was not used,” Norman said.

AMSTERDAM, 14/12/06 – “Racism and discrimination are no longer a question of white against black, but have become much more complex,” states the Racism and Extremism Monitor presented yesterday. Leiden University and the Anne Frank Foundation, which compile the monitor, have added racist violence against whites as a separate research category.

“In the previous monitor we identified three movements: anti-Semitic violence, violence against Muslims and violence against refugees. A fourth category has been added: racist violence against whites. This is a relatively new theme and it is possible that the significance of the problem is insufficiently recognised,” explained the study.

Between 1 and 3 percent of the native Dutch (aged 16 and over) experienced racial discrimination in 2005. This is between 100,000 and 300,000 people. “The discrimination experience probably had a violent aspect in an unknown number of cases. These research findings prompted us to devote more attention than in the past to racism against whites as a theme in the monitor work.”

[ Gov. Phil Bredesen]

Tennessee – Two white candidates claim that they were rejected for the fifth and final seat on the Supreme Court of the state because of their race. Earlier this year, Gov. Phil Bredesen scrapped the first panel of candidates given by the commission after the only minority candidate, Davidson County Chancellor Richard Dinkins, withdrew for family reasons. The commission was told by Gov. Phil Bredesen that he wanted the panel to include qualified minority candidates.

One black candidate was included in the second panel, Memphis Circuit Judge D’Army Bailey. Yet, it as well included J. Houston Gordon, an attorney and former state Democratic Party chairman, and George T. “Buck” Lewis, each of which were rejected from the panel previously.

John Hicks, Lewis’ attorney said: “There’s no real question that the reason Mr. Lewis and Mr. Gordon were rejected was because of race.” Charles W. Bone, an attorney for Gordon said: “It’s just as significant for (Bredesen) to say, ‘I’m not going to appoint these people because they’re white as it is for him to say I’m not going to appoint somebody because they’re black.”

Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle is hearing the case by the candidates. The case is hoped to be ruled on by Friday.

Racism, guns a deadly mix December 10, 2006

Terror gripped the streets of San Francisco in late 1973 and early 1974.

Black men affiliated with the Nation of Islam were shooting whites, at random and out in the open. In less than six months, 15 people were killed and seven were injured, including a future mayor, Art Agnos.

At the time, Prentice Earl Sanders was one of two black homicide inspectors in a department already fractured internally over race. Suddenly, because of the so-called “Zebra Murders,” police officials found themselves needing black officers they didn’t have.

“The same thing that sparked the killing was getting in the way of solving it,” Sanders writes in his recently published memoir, “The Zebra Murders: A Season of Killing, Racial Madness, and Civil Rights” (Arcade Publishing, $26).

“As hateful as the killers were, it was racism that lit the fire that burned inside them,” he says. “And it was racism that kept the department so white we didn’t have enough black officers to infiltrate a group like the one we were after.”

In a distinguished, nearly 40-year career, Sanders later became the city’s first black police chief. But he chose to write his first book about this episode in his career because the havoc the killers unleashed on the city seemed to symbolize the social instability of the time.

Even within the San Francisco Police Department, a group of black officers had sued alleging racial discrimination.

“A lot of things were going on in the early ’70s all at once — guys at war with the Police Department, unrest in the Police Department,” Sanders said in an interview at his daughter’s home in San Bruno, just south of San Francisco.


Two men allege discrimination against Whites in TCC’s hiring practices December 2, 2006

Tidewater Community College is accused of discrimination. The school will not comment on the allegations because officials say it is a personnel issue. Officials add the school policy is to hire without regard to race or color.

Ed Tompkins, a trucker from Chesapeake, and Russell Luck, who lives in Portsmouth, say combined, they’ve driven more than three million miles accident free and Luck says that safety record is no accident, “That’s not by chance. I mean you really have to pay attention.”

So it’s no wonder a friend suggested both apply to be tractor-trailer instructors for Tidewater Community College’s Portsmouth campus. Tompkins says there were a total of five applicants there, “I felt that I was probably more qualified than anybody else who was sitting there.”

But in June 2005, they learned neither man got either of the two openings. Tompkins has 15 years experience, Luck 18.

Luck says, “I’ve done everything I can in 18 years to do my best and it’s like somebody walks up and slaps you in the face.”

Luck may sound like he has an extreme case of sour grapes. But the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determined this fall there was something rotten in TCC’s hiring process– discrimination. EEOC documents for both truckers read quote,”There is reasonable cause to believe that the charging party was denied hire because of his race, white.” The two people TCC did hire, the truckers charged, were African-American. Tompkins says,
