A school in London that is owned, funded and run by the Saudi Arabian government teaches students that Christians are ‘pigs’ and Jews are ‘monkeys’, a former teacher has alleged in an employment tribunal claim.

The Times of London reports that Colin Cook, who taught English at King Fahad Academy for 18 years, cited Arabic teaching materials used at the school to confirm his belief that the academy was “institutionally racist”.

“The schoolbooks presently in use describe Jews as ‘monkeys’ (or apes) and Christians as ‘pigs’,” said Cook, who was dismissed from the school in December.

After speaking to senior staff about his concerns, Cook, 57, claims he was told: “This is not England, it is Saudi Arabia.”

He is taking action against the school for unfairly dismissing him and because he alleges he suffered racial discrimination for not being a Saudi.

When Lovie Smith’s Chicago Bears beat the New Orleans Saints, and when Tony Dungy’s Indianapolis Colts defeated the New England Patriots, the two men became the first black head coaches to advance to the Super Bowl in the game’s 41-year history.

And it didn’t take long for the media to take notice.

Not one minute after Colts quarterback Peyton Manning took a knee to seal the AFC Championship, CBS’ Jim Nantz gushed over the fact that not one, but two African-American coaches have finally made it to the nation’s grandest sporting event. And get this – one of them is going to win!

Every major sports Web site featured a column on the momentous occasion.

ESPN’s John Clayton wrote, “The NFL has been waiting 41 years for the first African-American head coach to patrol the sidelines at a Super Bowl. Now there will be two, and one will be the winner. Actually, the nation will be the winner in this one.”

Sports Illustrated columnist Jeffri Chadiha joined in the celebration as well.

“You have to understand this isn’t merely about the Super Bowl,” he wrote. “It’s about a cultural shift. It’s about progress.”

Racism and race crime redefined: no longer a black and white issue November 8, 2006

Kriss Donald was killed by three Asian men in a racist attack

Racism was once defined as “prejudice plus power” – a definition which, in a British context, has tended to exclude all but the white population.

However, the “racist murders” of Kriss Donald in Glasgow in 2004 and Ross Parker in Peterborough in 2001, young white men killed by Asians, demonstrate how society has been forced to redefine racism.

It was, of course, the murder of a young black man, Stephen Lawrence, which changed the debate about race crime in Britain.

The inquiry which followed redefined a racist incident as any “which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person”. It is, therefore, a largely subjective crime – and one which has proved extremely difficult to prove beyond reasonable doubt.

The statistics reflect that subjectivity, but they also reflect a belief right across the spectrum in multicultural Britain, that people are attacked because of the colour of their skin.

Can computers be racist? July 31, 2006

In a strange story a director of a University Culture Center feels the license plate N666R contains a “blatant racial epitaph”. If the “blatant racial epitatph” is not apparent it is because of institutional racism. The story follows below:

Last month, I drove out of an apartment complex in Boise and spotted a license plate that had 3 sixes.

This captured my attention, and as I slowed to look I realize I was staring at a blatant racial epitaph.

I questioned how the Idaho Department of Motor Vehicles could let this one slip by?
