Om BLM-dækning: ‘At some point, the organization went from ignoring key facts to just reporting lies’

Zar Kriegman var talknuser for Reuters, indtil han gik i dybden med Black Lives Matter-bevægelsen påstande om racistisk-motiveret politivold. Han vidste det kunne koste ham jobbet at fremlægge statistikken, men til sidst smed han det online internt. Hans opslag blev taget ned kort efter, og nogle dage senere var han fyret. Det er en lang beretning (der blandt andet henviser til Roland Fryers forskning), men skal du kun læse en artikel i dag, så lad det være denne. Her lidt fra gennemgangen hos Common sense – I Criticized BLM. Then I Was Fired..

“In 2020, I started to witness the spread of a new ideology inside the company. On our internal collaboration platform, the Hub, people would post about ‘the self-indulgent tears of white women’ and the danger of ‘White Privilege glasses.’ They’d share articles with titles like ‘Seeing White,’ ‘Habits of Whiteness’ and ‘How to Be a Better White Person.’ There was fervent and vocal support for Black Lives Matter at every level of the company. No one challenged the racial essentialism or the groupthink.

This concerned me. I had been following the academic research on BLM for years…, and I had come to the conclusion that the claim upon which the whole movement rested—that police more readily shoot black people—was false.

The data was unequivocal. It showed that, if anything, police were slightly less likely to use lethal force against black suspects than white ones.

… Police are authorized to use lethal force only when they believe a suspect poses a grave danger of harming others. So, when it comes to measuring cops’ racial attitudes, it’s important that we compare apples and apples: Black suspects who pose a grave danger and white suspects who do the same.

Unfortunately, we don’t have reliable data on the racial makeup of dangerous suspects, but we do have a good proxy: The number of people in each group who murder police officers.

According to calculations (published by Patrick Frey, Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County) based on FBI data, black Americans account for 37 percent of those who murder police officers, and 34 percent of the unarmed suspects killed by police. Meanwhile, whites make up 42.7 percent of cop killers and 42 percent of the unarmed suspects shot by police—meaning whites are killed by police at a 7 percent higher rate than blacks.

If you broaden the analysis to include armed suspects, the gap is even wider, with whites shot at a 70 percent higher rate than blacks. Other experts in the field concur that, in relation to the number of police officers murdered, whites are shot disproportionately.

… For many months I stayed silent. I continued to read Reuters’ reporting on the movement, and started to see how the company’s misguided worldview about policing and racism was distorting the way we were reporting news stories to the public.

In one story, Reuters reported on police in Kenosha, Wisconsin shooting a black man, Jacob Blake, in the back—but failed to mention that they did so only after he grabbed a knife and looked likely to lunge at them.

In another story, Reuters referred ‘to a wave of killings of African-Americans by police using unjustified lethal force,’ despite a lack of statistical evidence that such a wave of police killings had taken place. (In 2020, 18 unarmed black Americans were killed by police, according to The Washington Post database.)

And in yet another, Reuters referred to the shooting of Michael Brown as one of a number of ‘egregious examples of lethal police violence,’ despite the fact that an investigation conducted by the Justice Department—then run by Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder—had cleared the police officer in question of all wrongdoing.

A pattern was starting to emerge: Reporters and editors would omit key details that undermined the BLM narrative. More important than reporting accurately was upholding—nurturing—that storyline.

At some point, the organization went from ignoring key facts to just reporting lies. When Donald Trump declared, in July 2020, that the police kill more white than black people—this is true—Reuters, in its dispatch, repeated the false claim that blacks ‘are shot at a disproportionate rate.’ …

All this left me deeply unsettled: It was bad for Reuters, which was supposed to be objective and withhold judgment. It was bad for our readers, who were being misinformed. And it was bad for black people in rough neighborhoods, where local officials, prompted to take action by reporting like ours and the public outcry it triggered, were doing things like defunding the police.”

New York: Tre unge negere knivdræbte 18-årige Tessa, ingen racismedebat, ingen demonstrationer…

Det bedste argument for abort i en amerikansk kontekst er den logiske konsekvens af restriktioner, flere underklasse-negere, opvokset i fædreløse hjem. Ja, i det her konkrete tilfælde kunne man på sin vis godt sætte abortgrænse lidt op, eksempelvis til det 16. år. En historie fra New York Post, der ikke får folk til at demonstrere – Teen killer sentenced to 14 years in stabbing death of Barnard student Tessa Majors.

“Weaver was the first to attack Majors after she passed the trio while staring down at her phone. He ran up behind her and kicked her hard in the back.

As the teen muggers descended on Majors, she struggled for her life, at one point biting Weaver in the finger — causing him to fly into a rage.

That’s when Lewis held Majors in a headlock, and Weaver repeatedly knifed her, piercing her heart, and sending the feathers of her down coat into the air. …

During the mugging of Majors, Weaver ‘didn’t just attack her once,’ Bogdanos said, detailing how the trio came after the college freshman three times in the park as she tried to escape.

‘He didn’t just stab her once,’ Bogdanos said. ‘He stabbed her four times. Four times in the chest.’

New York: BLM-sympatiserende black supremacist skyder ti personer, “… efterforskes ikke som terror”

‘Ti personer er blevet skudt i New Yorks subway – efterforskes ikke som terror’, skrev DR Online i tirsdags. Der er ingen opfølgende artikel, hvad indikerer at gerningsmanden ikke deler hudfarve med Anders Breivik. Det viser sig ikke overraskende, at vi har at gøre med en Trumphadende Black Lives Matter-sympatisør, der sågar har flirtet med Nation of Islam. En black supremacist. Detaljer om gerningsmanden fra Heavy.com – Frank R. James, Brooklyn Person of Interest: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know.

“Frank R. James was identified by New York police as the person of interest in the mass shooting inside a Brooklyn subway train during which a green construction-vest clad gunman carrying a .9mm caliber handgun shot 10 people during rush hour. It was a chaotic scene that left bloodied victims lying on the subway platform…

On YouTube, James shared a video in the name ‘prophet oftruth88’ about a slashing and recent violent crimes in the New York subway. …

In another YouTube video, James shared television news reports of a previous mass shooting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at Molson Coors. In that video, James talked about the Molson Coors shooter, Anthony Ferrill, who was Black, saying that gunman was ‘discriminated against’ and ‘no one say and do sh*t’ until he started shooting people. ‘And I’ve dealt with it time and time again.’ He said he was a machinist, calling it the most ‘racist’ trade in the country. He said there were a ‘bunch of racist white mother f******’ in that trade.

‘The vast majority of people, white mother******* are racist,’ he says in that video.

Heavy has confirmed that Frank James had a Facebook page in the name Frank Whitaker. The page contains images of guns and describes Black nationalism as ‘black unity,’ in addition to criticizing former President Donald Trump and posting about racism.

(Eftersøgte Frank R. James på Facebook-profilen ‘Frank Whitaker’)

“James often rails against numerous racial and ethnic groups, including whites, Blacks, Jews, and Latinos. … implies that a race war between whites and Blacks is imminent. In one video, he calls Sept. 11, 2001 ‘the most beautiful day in the history of this country.’ ‘White people and Black people should not have any contact with each other,’ he says in a March 23 video…‘” (Rolling Stone, 13. april 2022)

Ung kvinde antastet af afrikaner i bybus: ‘Jeg er bare en hvid pige.. så jeg skal ikke tro, at jeg er noget’

Det er ikke alle pæne piger, der bliver islam-leflere i mediebranchen. En video cirkulerer på Tiktok, hvor en ung kvinde fortæller om en oplevelse i en bybus. Desværre udateret. Kan ses på Youtube.

Kvinde: Jeg deler det her til alle, så alle kan se det. I skal passe på med hvad I siger, når I kommer ud i byen. Min veninde og jeg, vi er på vej ind i en bus, og så kommer der en fyr – fordi jeg er ved at tage en snap af mig selv. ‘Tror du,, at du er Beyoncé, og så siger jeg ‘Nej’. Så begynder han så at sige til mig, at jeg ikke skal tro jeg er noget – jeg er bare en hvid pige, jeg er bare en europæisk pige, så jeg skal ikke tro, at jeg er noget. Og så siger jeg til ham: ‘Hvorfor skal du være racistisk overfor mig – Jeg må da godt føle mig flot, bare fordi at jeg er hvid’. Vi kommer ind i bussen, og han begynder at blive meget voldsom, og irriteret over at jeg spørger, hvorfor han er racistisk overfor mig. Hvilket han er, så det forestår jeg ikke helt. Her kommer videoen af det hele, det er lidt dårligt filmet…

Kommunistisk propaganda og hadforbrydelser i Haderslev: ‘fuck dansker’, ‘Asyl til alle’…

JyskeVestkysten fortæller, at Haderslev har problemer med graffiti-hærværk. Avisens fotograf har taget fjorten billeder fra det offentlige rum, og det drejer sig blandt andet om ‘fuck dansker’, og ‘Asyl til alle’ efterfulgt af ACAB (All cops are bastards) og det kommunistiske hammer & segl. Fra JV.dk – ‘Lorte svin’, ‘fuck dansker’ og spraymalede penisser: Se billederne af det skæmmende graffiti, der plager midtbyen.

“Hans Peter de Place, der er udviklingskonsulent hos det Kriminalpræventive Råd, fortæller, at hvis det er unge mennesker, der står bag graffitien, at det så handler om, at de leder efter spænding og udfordringer. Derfor skal man give dem flere muligheder for at udfolde sig.

– Det skal være noget, som de, der ellers ville lave graffiti, hellere ville. Jeg ville starte med at undersøge, hvad de er interesseret i, så man sammen med dem kunne finde ud af, hvad de ellers kunne lave, siger han.”

Vestlige lande er ‘Least Racist’: ‘White liberals were the only subgroup exhibiting a pro-outgroup bias’

Det kan være svært at måle graden af racisme i et land, men tjekker man ‘Best Countries Report’, og ser på ‘Least Racist Countrie’ (2022), så er de første sytten lande vestlige. Samtlige islamiske lande, bortset fra Indonesien (24. plads) er ringere placeret end konservative Polen eller Orbans Ungarn.

Der er ikke noget specielt lækkert ved racisme, men alle etniciteter har ‘In-group bias’, og det modsatte svækker blot det kulturelle immunforsvar. Anti-racisme fungerer som en spændetrøje i en boksekamp. Jeg har nævnt artiklen tidligere, men den er værd at gengive. Fra Tabletmag – America’s White Saviors (2019).

“As the graph above shows, white liberals—especially the self-identified ‘very liberal’—are significantly more likely to report intense or extremely frequent feelings of tenderheartedness, protectiveness, and sensitivity when considering the circumstances of racial and ethnic out-group members. A related graph below displays the average differences in feelings of warmth (measured along a 0-100 scale) toward whites vs. nonwhites (i.e., Asians, Hispanics, and blacks) across different subgroups.

Remarkably, white liberals were the only subgroup exhibiting a pro-outgroup bias—meaning white liberals were more favorable toward nonwhites and are the only group to show this preference for group other than their own. Indeed, on average, white liberals rated ethnic and racial minority groups 13 points (or half a standard deviation) warmer than whites. As is depicted in the graph below, this disparity in feelings of warmth toward ingroup vs. outgroup is even more pronounced among whites who consider themselves ‘very liberal’ where it widens to just under 20 points. Notably, while white liberals have consistently evinced weaker pro-ingroup biases than conservatives across time, the emergence and growth of a pro-outgroup bias is actually a very recent, and unprecedented, phenomenon.

“In the past five years, white liberals have moved so far to the left on questions of race and racism that they are now, on these issues, to the left of even the typical black voter.” (Matthew Yglesias, Vox, 2019)

Crumb anno 1981: Negere overfalder en dansker: ‘Hiv bukserne af ham!’, ‘Af med dem Hvidemand!’

Da jeg var teenager lå Robert Crumbs mange tegneserier frit tilgængelige på det lokale bibliotek, og jeg havde egentligt glemt navnet. Uforvarende kom jeg under oprydning i kælderen til at bladre lidt i ‘Den Afskyelige Snekvinde’, udgivet i 1981. Her er eksempelvis seks siders hygge-incest under overskriften ‘Viggo Våed’, og en fire siders historie om ‘Hvidemand’, der ydmyges af sorte. Moralen er vist at vi alle er ‘niggere’, men den var ikke gået i dag. ja, faktisk villle ingen af historierne kunne trykkes i dag. Incest, voldtægt, racisme…

Om Will Smith-vold: “This is about a much larger systemic issue rooted in white supremacist culture…”

Jyllands-Posten skriver med baggrund i Will Smith-affæren om ‘racebaseret hårdiskrimination’, men hvis du synes det er sort snak, så kan det blive meget værre. Erhvervsmagasinet Forbes har en kommentar fra ph.d. Maia Niguel Hoskin, som fortjener en selvstændig post. Selv i Twitterland vækker hun opsigt.

Set hos Forbes.com – While Talking About Will Smith’s Behavior, Don’t Forget To Also Talk About The System That Helped Create It.

“… perhaps the larger question that should be asked is why Blacks in Hollywood have routinely been expected to grin and bear embarrassment and degradation without expressing any discontent or risk being viewed as angry? Furthermore, why is it permissible for a Black woman’s health condition to be made content for a few cheap laughs at an award show and how will this incident overshadow the hard work of Will Packer, the Black man who produced the award show along with an all-Black team for the first time in history.

… Some argue that this is not about Will Smith and Chris Rock being Black or Will Smith ’setting Black people back.’ This is about a much larger systemic issue rooted in white supremacist culture designed to police the behavior of Blacks amongst the who’s who in Hollywood and beyond. Respectability politics suggest that equity and fair treatment require that Black people — both inside and outside of Hollywood — conduct ourselves in a manner deemed acceptable to whites. Furthermore, expressing any emotion other than complacence, apathy, or agreeance directly violates those norms, disqualifying Black people from receiving the same equitable treatment that whites enjoy as a birthright. And sadly, there is a large group of Blacks who have internalized this toxic messaging.

Again, most will agree that grievances should not be met with balled-up fists or open-palmed slaps. But perhaps there is space to challenge the system and the cultural norms and expectations that have created a pressure cooker for repressed and stereotyped emotions and behaviors of people of color. Bottom line: the joke was made in extremely poor taste. Many have pointed out that it is far from the norm for the health of white actresses to be made the butt of a joke in such a public and esteemed space. So, why should it be acceptable for Black women to be made the exception, and why is the public so eager to only wag their fingers in judgment of Smith’s behavior and not question the racist system that was designed to incubate his and so many others’ frustrations. Perhaps, the most tremendous disservice this rumble has caused was overshadowing history being made — the hard work of Will Packer, the first Black man to produce the esteemed award ceremony with an all-Black production team.”

Fake news: Institut for Menneskerettigheder lader kulturblind liberal støbe kugler til Rosa Lunds kanon

“Det er på grund af min hudfarve”, klynker ‘Omar’ i Ekstra Bladet, der henviser til en ny rapport om etnisk profilering fra Institut for Menneskerettigheder. “Jeg tror, at grunden til, at det sker, er at der findes racisme i vores samfund”, forklarer Enhedslistens Rosa Lund til avisen. Flere medier har pustet til narrativet, eksempelvis Dagbladet Information, der bragte en kommentar af Nadeen Aiche om ‘Politiarbejde baseret på fordomme’.

Når man ved at Rasmus Brygger leder ‘etnicitetsteamet’ hos Institut for Menneskerettigheder, er der god grund til at stille kritiske spørgsmål, men ingen gjorde det. Bortset fra landets borgerlige alternativ. Fra Kontrast.dk – Institut bag rapport: Vi er ikke sikre på etnisk profilering.

“Enhedslisten har brugt en ny rapport fra Institut for Menneskerettigheder til at gøre gældende, at politiet arbejder ud fra en etnisk profilering, der usagligt diskriminerer borgere med anden etnisk baggrund.

… over for Kontrast understreger rapportens redaktør, Rasmus Brygger, at instituttet med rapporten ikke siger, at dette foregår:

‘Bare for at slå fast. Vi konkluderer ikke, at politiet anvender etnisk profilering i deres arbejde, eller at der skulle være en stærk indikation på det. Vi siger, det kan være, at politiet anvender etnisk profilering,’ siger han. …

Kontrast har også spurgt Rasmus Brygger, hvordan det stemmer med teorien om etnisk profilering, at tallene for indvandrere adskiller sig markant fra tallene for efterkommere, siden de to grupper må formodes at ligne hinanden af udseende.

Det er jo et godt spørgsmål. Vi har ikke kunnet finde svar på det i tallene. Man kan sige, at hvis vi kigger på de korrigerede tal, så er der et stort spring fra personer med dansk oprindelse til indvandrere. Hvad der så er årsagen til, at der også er en forskel mellem indvandrere og efterkommere, det siger de tal ikke noget om,’ siger han.”

Grundlæggende så ved vi ikke, om det skyldes dét, eller noget andet, eller noget tredje, eller om det skyldes etnisk profilering. Formålet med rapporten er også at gøre opmærksom på, at etnisk profilering kan være en forklaring.” (Rasmus Brygger)

Harald Toksværd: “Når det kommer til stykket, kan vi bare ikke særlig godt lide brune mennesker…”

Harald Toksværd er søn af skuespiller Andrea Vagn Jensen, der trods et sommerhus i Nordsjælland og et liv på første klasse, ser sig selv som venstreorienteret. Sønnen blev sendt på en Nørrebro-skole med 80 procent AEH’ere, og han endte selvfølgelig med at blive en oikofobisk anarkist.

Herunder lidt fra Harald Toksværds seneste kommentar i Politiken – Ukrainerne er ikke perfekte tragiske helte. De er bare hvide og tæt på.

Den global neoliberalisme behandler i det 21. århundrede altødelæggende krig og international sikkerhedspolitik som en middelmådig tv-serie, med perfekte charmerende helte og manisk leende, komisk onde skurke. Det er politisk analyse helt i Harry Potter-generationens ånd.

Samtidig det til, at vi endelig er nået til det punkt i den danske nations tilsyneladende endeløse højresving, hvor man kan sige den fortiede del højt. … Ikke nok med det, statsministeren har meldt klart ud, at man fint kan rejse til Ukraine for at kæmpe mod Rusland, hvis man vil – alt imens danskere er blevet straffet for at tage til Syrien og kæmpe mod IS. Jeg ville sådan ønske, at der var en god forklaring, der ikke var den pureste, mest indædte racisme. Noget med geografisk nærhed? Større folkeligt had til Putin end Assad og Saddam Hussein? Måske har danskerne og ukrainerne bare altid været et broderfolk, ens i sjæl og ånd! Nej, vel? Det er bare lettere at sympatisere, når dagens hovedperson er på den heldige side af beige. Når det kommer til stykket, kan vi bare ikke særlig godt lide brune mennesker, altså. Og måske er det i virkeligheden meget rart, at vi endelig er klar til at indrømme det.

En halvdum dranker og kolonial folkemorder som Winston Churchill kan hurtigt blive verdenshistoriens største krigshelt, fordi han er fandens dygtig til at sprænge ting i luften. En isoleret og selvfed lille ligusternation kan pludselig knibe tårer for et nærmest ukendt folkefærd, mens den har glemt de mange nationer, den selv har sønderbombet.”
