Brutality and Racist Violence against Aboriginal Youth

I am posting links to the stories below as further documentaton of the global nature of racist police violence and brutality.  Athough this incident occurred nearly a year ago, this story is  all over the Australian press and international press today as the officer has just been charged. You may have seen the viral video (above).  

NSW police officer charged over alleged assault of Indigenous teen.


And this one, also from a year ago:  

Members of the public call for sacking of Senior Constable "Raptor 13". 

As you will know if you follow my blogs, I often state that racist police violence against Black communities is a global problem.  It is not something that is confined to a particular group, community, country or society.  It happens in every country where Europeans are the dominant group.  

Go here to watch our recent Global Peace Summit, where we screened Injustice, the film the police tried to ban, and held a discussion with the director, Ken Fero.  

And go here for my conversation with Ken Fero.  He has made films about the same issue in many European country. 

As I often say, and have posted many times as part of the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence, we need to find solutions to this ongoing problem.  And I believe NVC (Nonviolent Communication) is one such solution.  

What do you think will resolve this ongoing issue?  Please leave your comments below and please share this with your networks.  Thanks.

Black History: Who Were the Scottsboro Nine?

The Scottsboro Nine
Content Warning:  This post contains adult content and is not suitable for children.  

In 1931, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, nine Black teenagers, known as the Scottsboro Nine, were convicted of raping two white women.  The men were completely innocent of this crime.  It took just four days for an all-white jury to convict them.  

 As Paul Gardullo, a curator at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, states, there existed "a myth of black predation on white women when the reality was the polar opposite".  In slavery, Black women were routinely raped and Black men, women and children were exploited and brutalised.  

Go here for more about the Scottsboro Nine.  

Ida B. Wells, a tireless anti-lyching campaigner, produced the Red Record, having systematically researched accounts of lynchings which were based on the fallacy of Black men raping white women.  Wells proved that these accounts were wholly false.  

For more about Ida B. Wells, see:  Ida B. Wells:  a Passion for Justice.

I have two questions for you today:  

1) Does this incident remind you of anything that has happened in the past year or few years?; and 

2) If so, what can be done about this repeated pattern?  

I have my own thoughts about this, but I want to know what you think.

White Women's Role in White Supremacy

I don't often blog specifically about white supremacy, as I think it is important to focus on the positive.  However, white supremacy is all around us - and inside of us - and we need to understand it.  

This is a very interesting article about white women's role in white supremacy, both historic and current.  White women were among the architects of white supremacy.  Until they won the right to vote, white women's main economic power came through their ability to own, buy and sell enslaved African people.  

After the Civil War, white women joined, and were active in, the Ku Klux Klan.  And, of course, Birth of a Nation contributed to the mythology of the Klan as a necessary protection of white women from Black men who were keen, and naturally inclined, to attack them sexually.  In the film Freedom Riders, some of the participants speak of the involvement of white women in assaulting the riders. 

According to this article, white women also played an active role in the recent storming of the Capitol building, in which five people died, and they are active, and play key roles, in white supremacist organisations. 

What are your thoughts about the role of white women in white supremacy?  Please leave your comments below and please share this with your networks.  Thanks.
