Une pub du média français Spicee s'amuse de la violence policière envers les noirs

Une des publicités du média en ligne français Spicee annonce avec sarcasme: "Cette semaine, j'ai tiré sur aucun black dans la rue. J'étais trop occupé à regarder des documentaires sur spicee.com. - Stanley Aldridge, policier américain".

Ce "sarcasme" a heurté certains internautes, en particulier des noirs, qui trouvent déplacé de faire du marketing et de vendre un produit en s'amusant du racisme qu'ils subissent au quotidien.

Sur la défensive, le média…

Black women storm the internet to show #WhatADoctorLooksLike after Delta Airlines discrimination scandal

Dr. Tamika Cross is like any other doctor. She got her degree from a reputable medical school and now practices in Houston, TX, where she’s an OB-GYN. And like any other physician, when they’re on a plane and someone needs medical attention, generally she steps up to the plate to offer her professional opinion. Unfortunately, Delta Airlines had trouble seeing the doctor past her skin tone because Dr. Cross happens to be a Black woman. Her story’s gone viral since she first…

[FR] 'Violences, Racisme & Religions' - Un livre captivant célèbre le philosophe Cornel West sur fond de Blues et de Jazz

Un travail tout à fait d'actualité et particulièrement pertinent en cette période où de plus en plus d'afro-descendants se conscientisent et remettent en question l'ordre établi et les propagandes d'Etat.

Dans son livre …

Leaked documents remind us that Hollywood is paying Black & Brown actors and actresses chump change compared to their white counterparts

The equal pay debate has been raging since the 60s, and the fact that in 2016 Black men and women are still being paid less than their white counterparts is outrageous. On Tuesday, Variety uncovered and published the salaries of many television stars, and in the midst of controversy over the film and television industry’s treatment of minority actors, the numbers don’t paint a surprising picture, but the picture is disheartening nonetheless. The men and women representing… Continue

Support the campaign to Abolish Columbus Day—because celebrating native genocide is racist, period

The Zinn Education Project has launched an effort to get schools and communities to change Columbus day to Indigenous Peoples Day. We all know that Christopher Columbus was a racist, xenophobic murderous colonizer, but that has stopped the United States from celebrating his conquest with a day of his very own. Meanwhile in North Dakota, Indigenous people and allies are attempting to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, on land that would still be theirs had Christopher…

WTF - Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re: "Rape not as bad as abortion"

*TW: rape, sexual assault, child abuse



French Magazine Marie-Claire called out the fact Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re is still part of Vatican leadership in spite of his comments condemning the abortion of a 9-year-old Brazilian girl who was raped by her step-father. In the years since these comments, the Vatican still defends this stance, due to the belief that the fetus is a person and that the fetuses’ innocence and pregnant woman’s life are of equal…

[FR] Le Musée du Quai Branly "apprend" aux enfants que certains esclaves avaient une vie "agréable" et que les discriminations raciales aux Etats-Unis se sont terminées en 1964

Un livret pour enfants du Musée du Quai Branly commence avec plusieurs paragraphes douteux affirmant que certains esclaves avaient des vies "agréables" et que le Civil Rights Act de 1964 a marqué "la fin de la discrimination raciale" aux Etats-Unis. Certains invités du vernissage outrés parlent de révisionnisme. 



La grande institution parisienne Musée du Quai Branly vient d'inaugurer 'The Color Line', une…

Major French institution teaches kids that some U.S. slaves had "pleasant lives" & that racial discrimination ended in 1964

Musée du Quai Branly's booklet for kids starts with several questionable paragraphs stating that some slaves had "pleasant lives" and that the Civil Rights Act from 1964 marked "the end of racial discrimination"... Many say this is revisionist "History" at its best.



Major Parisian institution Musée du Quai Branly just launched 'The Color Line', a very ambitious exhibition about the History of…
