Calling all 'lefties'!Watch
I am writing this post to urge you to reinforce the embattled ranks of the anti-fascists in the News and Current Affairs forum, because it is at risk of falling to the hordes of the far-right.
It is important that we fight racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia, especially on this forum, which is meant to be a bastion of liberal thinking.
Thank you, and happy easter!
I'm so stupid sometimes, I thought the thread meant 'left handed people' so I clicked on it thinking 'I'm Left handed!'
Its a valid mistake to make
The reasons behind fear of blacks are different to fear of Islam. Due to a history of pseudoscientific racism, racism in general, modern racism and colonialism, Blacks, on average, currently have a low socioeconomic status in the West and elsewhere. Their history of being oppressed and enslaved has created a culture which places low value on education, steering many Blacks towards crime and drug use and lower average IQs - hence the stereotype of Black criminality. However, this stereotype reflects real statistics on crime, although institutional racism (e.g. persecuting Black crime and not White crime) may affect these figures. Nonetheless, just because your Black doesn't mean you're inherently criminal.
Re Islam, I'll just leave these here:
