BBC.This.Week.171012.-.Racist.Munroe.Bergdorf.Diatribe

MB: "The uncomfortable truth is that the white race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on earth."

Comment
Brown/Muslim - over 1,000 years of war between sects & other religions to present day
Black/Africa - wars between tribes from <C5 to present day
White - comparatively few wars.

MB: "I'm not talking about their academic performance. I'm talking about how we are taught about each other. If black kids are not being taught about their history, if we are taught that white history is paramount, that is essentially feeding into a white supremacist narrative.

We can't be teaching kids that white is the default, that white people's history is the sole history of this country. We need to be taught about black contributions, and other contributions of other cultures."

Comment
Until mid/late C20 Britain was a >95% white - predominantly Judaeo-Christian - country. Thus, negligible history of blacks & other cultures.

Her pitiful lefty sjw performance was all "me me me" with no facts.

.
It's not Gov't's job to eradicate racism [sexism/anyism]; it's the job of immigrants to integrate and persuade indigenous population to see them as equals. Gov't intervention angers many and pushes them to hide their true feelings and resent those shown favouritism imposed by the state.

From elsewhere link:

Quite. Both Neil and the big-lipped fellow Portillo* were particularly gentle with the person; it's complaint was largely that there's an insidious racism in the country which gives schoolchildren a hard ride, and subsequently prevents ethnic minorities from achieving high office in commerce, government etc, and that there's no discussion about racism.

Its blind disregard of the figures presented in this report, of the facts about the splendid results achieved by Indian and Chinese students, and the ghastly ones shown by 'white working-class (boys)', and the fact that it is discussing these issues with three well-versed commentators on one of the best-regarded current affairs programmes really is a condemnation of the stance it takes. If that wasn't enough, it then decided to claim that there is a separate community of its' kind; 'Black Britain', which is wholly at ease with itself. Disgusting.

*Edit. Portillo; a very bright and perceptive chap, who wears very silly shirts.

.
IT also makes no mention of personal attitude, the single biggest factor in anyone getting ahead in life no matter what skin colour you have - if you speak like a yank rapper, dress like a chav, disrespect people you are speaking to, look surly, keep your head tucked inside a hood and have a body posture that looks like you're ready for the knackers yard then its no surprise you may not get the job or will attract police notice!

The Reformation & Social Media

Tech Vs. Trump: The Great Battle Of Our Time Has Begun

For most of history, it is true, hierarchies have tended to dominate distributed networks. However, there are historical precedents for technological change leading to enhanced connectedness that empowers social networks and weakens hierarchies.

The first began exactly 500 years ago, when Martin Luther launched his campaign for reform of the Roman Catholic church. Had it not been for the printing press, Luther would have been just another obscure heretic and might well have ended his life in the flames of the stake. But Gutenberg’s innovation enabled Luther’s message to ‘go viral’ — as we would now say — and it spread with remarkable speed throughout Germany and then across north-western Europe.

Stewgreen and AK. I agree with both comments but the beholder chooses what they want to read and that includes what subjects and how they are portrayed. The WikiTribune can't be all things to all men.

The Russiagate Scandal Descends Into Total Absurdity

The Senate Intel Committee told us yesterday that, after nearly nine months of investigation — that’s included more than 100 interviews, over more than 250 hours, 4,000 pages of transcripts, 100,000 pages of documents, interviewing officials in the intelligence community who wrote the report on Russian election meddling, interviewing relevant Obama administration officials, and talking to every Trump campaign official they’ve requested — it’s literally found zero evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Never mind Russia dismantling America’s democratic system with only $100,000 in Facebook ads, which did not even discuss the US election, Russia has now weaponized Pokemon.

CNN broke an ‘exclusive’ story on Thursday in their desperate attempt to publish anything with the word ‘Russians’ in the title. CNN is now claiming the Russians meddled in the 2016 presidential election through Pokemon Go.

From WUWT
"OCO-2’s sensors also measured carbon dioxide emissions over the Los Angeles basin, detecting a sort of carbon dioxide “dome”. Urban areas account for more than 70 percent of anthropogenic emissions."

" so we do thing that will add more umph to the jetstream producing stronger storms, and more frequently"

\\ The irony of @BBCCountryfile doing a piece on a medieval village destroyed by storm & no mention of #GlobalWarming //

Example of choosing agenda to report 4pm R4
\\Omar El Akkad's* debut novel American War
: a future America where the country has been ravaged by climate change and a second Civil War breaks out over fossil fuels. //
* BTW He was upset at people describing him as ethnic Egyptian

then at 4:30pm
"Writer and poet Bridget Minamore explores how women - particularly women of colour - have pushed back against the poetry establishment to create their own literary narratives."
She started Octavia a poetry group that only admits Women of Colour.
Apparently that is not racist

Equality should not be #MoreEqualThanOthers where specialvictim groups get masses of coverage

Bias is in the eye of the beholder.

@TinyCO2
Bias is* just HOW you report
but about WHAT you CHOOSE to report
by choosing an SJW-dream story as their first post .. Wikitribune shows it has an agenda
