    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    NASCAR has embarrassed itself over the matter of a noose supposedly found in black driver Bubba Wallace's garage.

    It wasn't a noose, it had nothing to do with him, and it had been there since last year.

    I thought it a bit sissy. Hopefully only good came out of it

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    OK, so what are white people asserting their white privilege going to give up themselves? They always want other white people to make sacrifices, usually the poorest of them.

    The Stolen Children

    Efforts to 'breed out' indigenous identity (now recognised as cultural genocide) were not restricted to Australia. Canadian indigenes suffered similar treatment, highlighted in the past few days by the unearthing of the remains of 215 children in a mass grave at Kamloops Indian Residential School (closed in 1978).

    Remains of 215 children found at Indigenous school site in Canada

    [While driving through Kamloops on a Vancouver - Rockies tour in 2016, the guide pointed out the school and spoke of its dark history]

    This is exactly the point. And nobody is responsible for those issues other than the people and I believe this is the case with many other problems where its not about race discrimination but about about systimatic problems within certain communities.

    You've missed Kevin's point completely. He said: "Societal inequalities with a racial dimension (ie systemic racism) contribute to that. So if anyone wants to bring up racism and abortion they should be questioning whether the policies that drive the high black abortion rate are themselves racist."

    ‘You don’t ever let your guard down’: Racism and reality in Australia

    We’re against racism, on that we all agree. Half-way through the Sir Doug Nicholls round in the AFL, we’re so very against it. But what exactly are we against? Racism flickers at the edge of white people’s consciousness, but for those who aren’t Caucasian, it is an everyday, in-your-face reality. ...

    Recounts detailed in a letter from club management described the exchange where a player had used a racial slur toward an Indigenous player and had repeated the slur after being told this was inappropriate. ...
