A boy of nine who was found hanged is believed to have killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school.
Aaron Dugmore – thought to be one of the youngest children in the UK to commit suicide – was discovered in his bedroom after being tormented for months, his parents said.
They said Aaron was threatened with a plastic knife by one Asian pupil, who warned him: ‘Next time it will be a real one.’
He was also allegedly told by another pupil that ‘all the white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.
Racism is a two way street.
Now don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.
No one, not matter their race, religion, sexuality, gender identification or physical and/or mental capabilities or appearance should have to commit suicide over shit like being bullied. NO BODY! Especially a fucking 9 year old child!
This is problematic.
Racism is not a thing against white people.
Racism is power + prejudice.
What happened to him might have been horrible. It might have been highly prejudiced, but it was not racist.
It is not your place, as white people, to attempt to define what is racist and what isn’t.
Please, spare us your white tears..
As a certified angry African American black guy with a long internet history of raging about America’s white racism and “white is alright, if you’re black stay back” culture
As an African American who cheered every minute of D’Jango Unchained
As an African American who spends much time immersing his 3 daughters and toddler son in positive black images like Bass Reeves, the man behind the legend of the Lone Ranger
As an African American who voted for Obama twice and also went face to face with angry Tea Partiers to yell right back at them to their faces when they came to my city shouting racial epithets about Obama
I do not want to see your “white tears” attitude associated with any concept of social justice that I hold dear.
It is neither white people’s place, nor black people’s place, or anyone’s place, to attempt to define what is racist and what isn’t. It is solely the authority of logic and reasoning to define what racism is.
Racism is not power+prejudice.
Racism is not power+prejudice.
RACISM IS NOT AND NEVER WAS POWER+PREJUDICE.
NO, NO, NO, NO AGAIN, AND HELL FUCKING NO, it is not.
Racism is exactly one and only one thing: it is the hatred of a group of people based on their race. Period. It doesn’t suddenly NOT become racism any more when it’s white people who are being singled out. PERIOD. DOT. STOP.
Do you know who REALLY has the power and the prejudice? The PLUTOCRACY. They’ve got white people and black people at each other’s throats so that we don’t get ourselves focused on who is really enslaving us: the captains of industry who are slashing our wages, cutting our jobs, making TRILLIONS in profits while demanding that the working class make do with less and less and less every year.
Job security, gone.
Livable wages for the 99%, gone.
Jobs themselves, gone overseas to places where you can’t breathe the air for all the pollution and where workers live in rabbit cages or even jump to their deaths to escape their “jobs”.
White people are now starting to suffer the same problems that black people have suffered because the Plutocrats are getting tired of using white people as their economic house niggers. Yes, I said, it, house niggers. White people got the better seats on this cultural Titanic but the ship is sinking and their lives are going to shit, too.
We’re not going to get anywhere drinking WHITE TEARS. We all need to work together, we need to wake up and realize who has really been screwing us.
White tears, black tears, we’re all crying, and guess who’s not? The Pluto fucking crats who are slowly bleeding all of us dry.
Do you even realize when Martin Luther King, Jr. actually got assassinated? It was the day after he traveled to Memphis to support AFSCME, a sanitation labor union. He wasn’t assassinated for his “mountaintop” speech. He was assassinated because he was aligning himself with labor unions… he was expanding his fight to include the working class.
Now let that one sink in for a second.
Oh and in the African American community, WHITE TEARS is ruining us. So many black men aren’t staying home to raise their kids, and we’re too busy blaming that on racism to look at ourselves for solutions. We can’t deal with the gangster rap culture and the hottentot bullshit because we’re too damned busy blaming white people.
Yes, racism is a thing. It’s a huge thing. Black people can’t even walk around in New York City without being targeted by the police for harassment. Most of those cops are white. Schadenfreude over white people crying, isn’t going to stop that. Getting out the vote will. The police are out of control and they’re not being nice to whites, either - look at what happened to Occupy.
Sheesh… people, wake up.
That last comment. Somebody who doesn’t see oppression as a fad that they have the monopoly on. Refreshing.
