A Flowchart For People Who Get Defensive When Talking About Racism - BuzzFeed News. Black Dragons: The Black Punk Gang Who Fought Racism & Skinheads in 1980s France. In a new short series, Okayafrica contributor Aude Konan will be highlighting little known black punk communities around the world, and how they work to gain more visibility within their local punk scenes.

Black Dragons: The Black Punk Gang Who Fought Racism & Skinheads in 1980s France

The first part of the series is a portrait of the Black Dragons and their fight against racist skinheads in 1980s France. Black punk communities seldom exist in France. Many French black punks don’t gather in groups as they don’t feel the necessity to further ostracize themselves from a punk scene that’s already not so welcoming of non-white faces. Throughout the years, though, a few black indie punks groups have emerged such as Mau Maus in the 1980s or the still active Zenzille. One of the closest thing France had to a black punk community was the Black Dragons, a group united by a will to fight back against racist skinheads and a strong sense of belonging to the Parisian suburbs.

The Black Dragons were an anti-fascist group formed in the 1980s in the northwestern Parisian suburbs. It Would Take 228 Years for Black Families to Amass Wealth of White Families, Analysis Says. Two hundred and twenty-eight years: That’s how long it would take for African-Americans to accumulate the same amount of wealth whites have now if current policies remain in place, according to a new analysis from the Corporation for Enterprise Development and Institute for Policy Studies.

It Would Take 228 Years for Black Families to Amass Wealth of White Families, Analysis Says

The stunning estimate is part of a study the two groups released this week on the racial wealth divide in the U.S., highlighting the growing disparity between Americans of color and everyone else, the policies that contributed to a widening divide and proposals to help reverse the trend. CFED and IPS looked at 30 years of data from the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, which includes information on Americans’ balance sheets, income, pensions and demographic characteristics.

Over the past 30 years, they found the average wealth of white families has grown by 84%, three times as fast as the rate for African-American families and 1.2 times the growth rate for Latino families. DOCU. "Le blanchiment des troupes coloniales" : un hommage vibrant aux tirailleurs noirs. Documentaire: Le blanchiment des troupes coloniales ( complet) Next time someone says, “But Africans sold themselves into slavery!”, send this article to them. EDITOR’S NOTE: The following except from pages 47-50 of Overturning the Culture of Violence, written by Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee and printed by Burning Spear Publications, debunks the cynical and anti-black argument that “Africans enslaved themselves.”

Next time someone says, “But Africans sold themselves into slavery!”, send this article to them

This argument points to the presence of Africans who collaborated with the European slave masters and “sold” Africans to them in order to shift the responsibility for the slave trade off the shoulders of the European colonial slavemaster and onto the backs of the colonized and enslaved African. Today, as the voice of the enslaved African community asserts itself in the world and lifts up the demand for reparations, the blame-shifting “African collaborator” argument can be seen gaining traction in universities and bourgeois historical publications, not as an historical argument but as a political defense against the legitimacy of the reparations demand.

I’ve been getting into a number of discussions and arguments lately, and wanted to put my thoughts and some links together in one place to refer back to.

Thoughts and Links on Black Lives Matter - Jim C. Hines

Black Lives Matter was created by three queer Black women: Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza after the killing of Trayvon Martin. From the BLM website, “Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum.” BLM’s principles include diversity, empathy, and the affirmation of black women, black trans folks, and black families. 11 Major Misconceptions About the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Meurtres de masse de Nice : made in America ou made in Daech ? Plus de 24 heures après les assassinats de masse de Nice, contrairement à ce que claironnaient les médias et la classe politique, jusqu’à la revendication probablement opportuniste de l’État Islamique peu d’éléments permettaient d’affirmer clairement que ces meurtres étaient liés directement à une organisation terroriste djihadiste.

Meurtres de masse de Nice : made in America ou made in Daech ?

Ceci n’a pas empêché nos hommes politiques de l’affirmer pour mieux nous vendre leur guerre de civilisations. Les premiers éléments du portrait de l’assassin qui conduisait le camion décrivaient plus sûrement un individu en désocialisation avancée qu’un fan de l’EI. Il était au chômage, issu d’un quartier populaire, en instance de divorce, plombé par des affaires judiciaires en lien avec son travail de chauffeur et sujet à des accès de violence contre ses proches.

The UK has a similar problem.

The fact that he was a police officer himself had varying effects on the officers who stopped him. “On some occasions it’s changed the encounter for the better and they have been much more friendly … the encounters ended pretty quickly,” Glynn said, “but on other occasions for some reason it has made it worse.” There are tools available to bring more accountability to policing, however.

Africans are fighting media poverty-porn by tweeting beautiful images of their real lives

Yesterday Greece missed the deadline to pay €1.5 billion ($1.7 billion) to the International Monetary Fund, a default that is likely to cause further turmoil in economic activity by creating more uncertainty for lenders. But even as Greek banks are closed and ATMs are nearly empty, political elites and creditors are stagnant arguing over conditions and structural adjustment policies of the bailout deal that has been offered.

The problem is that while Greek banks lie on life support and elites debate in air-conditioned board rooms, the Greek people, especially pensioners, are suffering. As Tom Feeney, a 29-year-old Londoner writes on his Indie GoGo account, “All this dithering over Greece is getting boring, European ministers flexing their muscles and posturing over whether they can help the Greek people or not. Qui sont les blancs. Le terme blanc a (re)fait son apparition dans le champ politique. Mais que signifie ce terme ? Qui sont les blancs ? Plus qu’une nécessité pour combattre le racisme, l’utilisation du terme blanc est une exigence politique. L’utilisation du terme blancs est nécessaire pour lutter contre le racisme, car sinon par quoi le remplacer ?
