Racism

Another Day in Internet Paradise, or “I’m Only Joking”

The article that I will be focusing on is entitled “When His Beautiful Wedding Photos Were Used for a Racist Meme, This Man Fought Back” by Margarita Noriega on June 2nd, 2015 for Vox. The article mainly focuses on the internet's unfortunate ability to transform beautiful and personal moments into offensive, racist slurs, and how one man sets the record straight. On September 13th 2014, Adam and Tisa Harris were officially pronounced as a newly-wed couple. Eleven days later, Adam uploaded his wedding photos on his personal Tumblr blog.

The article “Florida Moms Putting Kids up for Adoption see Canada as Promised Land with ‘Less Racism’ than U.S.” by Elizabeth Payne in the National Post on July 21, 2014 brings up the issue of the increase in children being put up for adoption in Canada by African-American parents because the multicultural country has less racism than in the United States. The author explains that these women wish for their children to be raised in a society that does not limit them based on their skin tone. These families believe that Canada will less expose their children to racism.

In Kali Holloway’s article “Racism is so insidious, even black people underestimate it”, posted by the guardian on September 29th, 2014, the author underlines people’s ignorance in regards to the true size of racism and it’s pervasiveness in North American society. Her main point in the article is that most americans (generally white people) don’t believe that racism is a real factor in the US, and that many believe it is “entirely made up by black people”, despite all the evidence to prove it. She begins by underlining the effects of racial profiling in context to the justice system.

In an article entitled titled “A Racist Turn in India” by Nilanjana S. Roy we get an inside look of the problems of India and where the blame is being put. At one time many Africans lived happily in New Delhi, making the community more diverse and rich in culture. They lived in harmony with the natives of the capital, until a man who was rumored to be a Nigerian national involved in the drug trade was found dead in Goa.

Racism is still around…

Did you know that racism still exists? If you didn’t, you should open your eyes. Racism is in every aspect of life, such as at work, at school, and even in public. I should say especially in public, after I watched this shocking video: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/09/17/anti-muslim-montreal-bus_n_3941269.html

 

50 years after the segregation: Obama, president, who would have believed it?

50 years earlier, thousands of people where in Washington to listen to the speech of Martin Luther King. Since that year, the segregation has been completely removed and is now illegal. Washrooms for black and white, places in the bus, no voting right , those things are now normal and accept like many others. The steps that the United States did by electing a black president is incredible.
