“…the Herero and the Nama did not prove quite as ‘inferior’ as the German occupiers thought. For years they stubbornly resisted being driven off their lands into the desert to die, despite huge loss of life at the hands of the Schutztruppe (colonial army) and their ‘cleansing patrols’.
But by 1905 the survivors were weary and weakened. The final straw came when the Kaiser issued an imperial decree expropriating the African lands.
Most of the Africans surrendered and were rounded up into concentration camps to build the colony’s new railways – gruelling work where men were routinely beaten and women workers systematically raped. on one section of the line, two-thirds of the prisoners died in 18 months.” Continue reading

“…reports of inhumane treatment have continued to filter back and there is no end in sight. Some of the job seekers have been tortured, raped, drowned, burnt, and beheaded, etc.
According to a watchdog report, more than 50 Ugandans working as maids, guards and drivers have died this year alone, 34 of whom reportedly committed suicide.” Continue reading

“I see my department uncritically reproducing a narrative that diminishes black agency in favor of a white-centric explanation that appeals to the department’s apparent desire to shoulder the ‘white man’s burden’ and to promote a narrative of white guilt.
If we claim that the criminal justice system is white-supremacist, why is it that Asian Americans, Indian Americans, and Nigerian Americans are incarcerated at vastly lower rates than white Americans? This is a funny sort of white supremacy. Even Jewish Americans are incarcerated less than gentile whites. I think it’s fair to say that your average white supremacist disapproves of Jews. And yet, these alleged white supremacists incarcerate gentiles at vastly higher rates than Jews. None of this is addressed in your literature. None of this is explained, beyond hand-waving and ad hominems. “Those are racist dogwhistles”. “The model minority myth is white supremacist”. “Only fascists talk about black-on-black crime”, ad nauseam….
I personally don’t dare speak out against the BLM narrative, and with this barrage of alleged unity being mass-produced by the administration, tenured professoriat, the UC administration, corporate America, and the media, the punishment for dissent is a clear danger at a time of widespread economic vulnerability. I am certain that if my name were attached to this email, I would lose my job and all future jobs, even though I believe in and can justify every word I type.
A typical workday for domestic workers in Saudi Arabia is between 15 to 18 hours in a day.
Imagine somebody working straight for 18 hours in a day out of 24 hours and they pay them about $5 to $7 per day and guess what some of this employers would refuse to pay the employees for a long time.
In fact sometimes for years, they may not pay the employees. They would say we are giving you food, we’re giving you a place to sleep even if it’s outside. They would say; what do you need the money for. So many employers are actually killed their employees if they keep asking for their money. There are no off days, no rest hours, there is no vacation, no nothing. Continue reading
“I must object. This is no reasoned ethical reflection. Rather, it is indoctrination, virtue-signaling, and the transparent currying of favor with our charges. The roster of Brown’s “leaders” who signed this manifesto in lockstep remind me of a Soviet Politburo making some party-line declaration. I can only assume that the point here is to forestall any student protests by declaring the university to be on the Right Side of History.” ~ Professor Glenn C. Loury, Brown University Continue reading
“What we are seeing is not just chaos. We are actually seeing resistance and organizing. And what we know is that uprising, including actions like burning buildings are legitimate and powerful forms of resistance” ~ Sarah Abbot, Sunrise Movement Organizer Continue reading
“Anti Racism as currently configured has gone a long way from what used to be considered intelligent and sincere civil rights activism. Today it’s a religion. … I mean that it actually is what any naive anthropologist would recognize as a faith… Galileo would recognize them quite easily. And so, for example, the idea that the responsible white person is supposed to attest to their white privilege and realize it can never go away and to feel eternally guilty about it, that’s original sin right there.” ~ Professor John McWhorton, Columbia University Continue reading
