Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race. On 22 February 2014, I published a post on my blog.

Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race

I titled it “Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race”. It read: “I’m no longer engaging with white people on the topic of race. Not all white people, just the vast majority who refuse to accept the existence of structural racism and its symptoms. I can no longer engage with the gulf of an emotional disconnect that white people display when a person of colour articulates their experience. You can see their eyes shut down and harden.

Racial disparities continue to persist in San Francisco's criminal justice system, according to a study reported by the San Francisco Examiner.


The study, which was commissioned by the San Francisco Public Defender's Office and conducted by the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice, found that minority populations, especially blacks, are booked on more severe charges, more likely to be convicted of felonies and spend more time behind bars compared to white offenders. The racial disparity is rooted in the arresting and booking processes as opposed to the court system, according to the study. That point was highlighted by the finding claiming that blacks endure 50 percent more severe charges compared to whites at the time of booking. Prejudice by Tim Minchin.

Young, black and unemployed: the tragedy of the 44%

Figures I've just received from the Labour Force Survey reveal that unemployment among young black people (aged 16-24) is a shocking 44% – over twice the rate of their white counterparts, of whom 20% are jobless. Black and Asian migrants after the war helped rebuild the economy: working in factories; doing the night shifts; working on the railways and driving the buses. 5 Ways to Disrupt Racism.

Police Shooting Statistics 2016: Are More Black People Killed By Officers Than Other Races?

So far in 2016, there have been 708 documented deaths in police shootings, 173 of which have resulted the deaths of African-Americans. Although there has been increased media attention surrounding the police killings of black people — on Saturday videos were released of Keith Scott’s death after he was shot by a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina — statistics show the number of police shootings has increased among all races. The Post, which has been collecting data and public records on police shootings throughout the country since last year, reported 325 white people and 111 Hispanics have been shot and killed by police so far in 2016.

Of the 708 deaths reported, the races of 27 of those kills were described as other, and the races of 72 of the deceased are still unknown. See soccer star's reaction to tossed banana. YouTube.

Luis Suárez joins anti-racism calls after Dani Alves banana incident

Luis Suárez, Neymar, Hulk, Mario Balotelli and Sergio Agüero were among those who posted pictures of themselves taking bites out of bananas in tribute to Alves' actions in his side's La Liga match at Villarreal on Sunday. The Fifa president Sepp Blatter has branded the abuse directed at Alves an "outrage" and promised zero tolerance towards discrimination at the World Cup, while Villarreal took swift action by identifying the culprit and handing them a lifetime stadium ban. Alves' response to the banana being thrown on to the pitch in front of him as he prepared to take a corner was to nonchalantly pick it up, peel it and take a bite before continuing with the game. Blatter admitted he was appalled by the treatment of Alves.

Analysis: Telephone Conversation by Wole Soyinka.

The title reveals the fact that two people are talking on the phone, so the beginning of the poem is on a positive note: The man is searching for a house and the land lady has named a considerable price, and the area where it is located is an impartial and not racially prejudiced. Also the man could enjoy his privacy as the land lady does not live under the same roof.
