EtcetEraThread Black man killed by neo-nazi in Denmark imitating the killing of George Floyd
Reason User banned (permanent): dismissing concerns around white supremacism. Prior ban for dismissing and speaking over the concerns of minority members.
They are not wrong. A Danish neo-nazi such as the one in this sorry episode is just as likely to be racist against eastern or southern Europeans, because that's the thing with nazis, they believe one sub-group of Europeans is superior to others. Racism and xenophobia in Europe has always been targeted against the outsiders, and to a Danish a Spaniard, or an Italian or a Serbian also an outsider. --- I think that is an important factor many Americans do not consider when discussing racism in Europe. In the US, Euro-Americans have all coalesced into a sort of semi-homogenous blob, the so-called "white people". They maintain some quirks from their European ancestors like some dishes or family traditions, but in the end one white American is very much like the other, particularly newer generations. Hence white supremacism, in the US, is this idea of group superiority against others, "white people" vs. "the rest (PoC)". In Europe, where racism most definitely exists and it is rampant and no one should ever put that in doubt, native Europeans haven't merged into "one people". A Swede is nothing like a Slovene, who is nothing like a Portuguese, and in all aspects: looks, culture, language, religion. Thus, you don't need to be non-white to be "the other". I mean, as people like to bring up the Nazis, they thought Slavs were "sub-human" and that Mediterraneans were "not as good" when compared to Germanics, and yet this was all "white people" (in American terms). Southern Europeans are often victims of discimination in northern Europe and eastern Europeans are often victims of discrimination in western Europe. People from Africa, Asia and the Middle East have the aggravating factor that on top of everything they look different, have a skin, or dress too differently, etc, which greatly increases their chances of being "othered", of suffering discrimination or even worse, racially motivated attacks as I personally believe was the case in this occassion. I do not think this can be reduced to being "white supremacism", because racially motivated attacks in Europe happen all the time unfortunately, and most of the victims are other Europeans (ask the Polish in the UK). Maybe the individual of this specific event was in fact anti-black and would only target African people. But racism in Europe is not a "white people vs the rest" situation (ie white supremacism) as it is in the US, it is more of a "my ethnicity/related-ethnicities vs others". That's the point I'm trying to make and that I believe other Europeans try to make when they speak about the specific circumstances of European racism. And if it makes any difference, I'm a mixed race European.

EtcetEraThread Black man killed by neo-nazi in Denmark imitating the killing of George Floyd
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissing concerns around racism in Europe. Prior severe ban or dismissing concerns around racism in America.
Don't wanna derail the thread since this is important news. Just gonna say that no, while every country in the first world has racism problems, equiparating america and "europe" is ridicolous. There's no way most countries in the union have police brutality, racial divide, shootings, public and rampant white supremacism incited by the highest government figure. I understand that feeling dogpiled as Americans feels bad, but this isn't how you get a "SEEE?? GOTCHA!". Anyhow. The problem with Denmark, as far as i understand from having lived close to it and acquaintances (one of my good friends is a very well educated Somali heritage Danish born) is that shit is *normalised* there. It MOST CERTAINLY IS NOT in the vast majority of countries. You should probably just come to accept it instead of trying to rile up circlejerking.

EtcetEraThread Black man killed by neo-nazi in Denmark imitating the killing of George Floyd
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissing racism over a series of posts, junior account
I don't agree with you and I find your view on this particularly destructive. There is plenty of racism in Europe, but I reject he idea that it is 1:1 equivalent with the American racisme. Plenty of racist aspects in Europe are affected by local factors and ignoring that by wholesale import of American movements, ideas and view on racism is so massively unhelpful that it is hard to overstate. At it's simplest a majority of the public will reject the notion of racism because the contextual framing applied is American and thus have a poor contextual fit for the racism in a European country.

EtcetEraThread Pool patrol Karen fired by Hampton Inn after calling cops on black hotel guest for using the hotel pool
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Concern trolling around racial issues
So in the interest of recent site criticism, I'm going to avoid low effort posts and dog piling and try to clarify the article which seems to have some contradictions. If I'm understanding the events correctly, it sounds like this employee noticed unattended kids swimming and proceeded to search the area for presumed parent(s), ultimately finding the mother (Mrs. Write) in her car in the parking lot. This was a good thing full stop, unattended kids in a pool is dangerous as fuck. Based on Mrs. Write's reference to an allegedly unquestioned white couple, I'm assuming the employee had asked Mrs. Write to prove her guest status prior to calling the cops, which she refused (based on the cops being called). The question is did the employee question Mrs. Write's status because she was in her car, or because she was black? Would she have questioned Mrs. Write if she was sitting pool side? Would she have questioned a white mother sitting in a car if she found 2 kids swimming unattended?

I understand the problems and the atrocities that have plagued history and and appreciate the desire to rectify them in some way. I think a much more productive use of energy and money would be to try to solve the problem of today's world. There are 10's of millions of slaves in the world right now!! Establishing a venue for identifying grievances for one group of people against others for the acts of ancestors opens up such a can of worms. Which groups are allowed to have grievances? How should a person who is 1/16 from Africa, 1/6 Native American, 1/3 German, be handled? Are we genetically testing everyone for racial purity to know who is really worthy of getting a payment? Is someone who is descended from Africa somehow more worthy than someone who is Jewish, or another group of people who have been oppressed or colonized throughout history? or is it only the history that a certain group determines is relevant

If that’s what he wants to do because he’s sees something good from it then go ahead. I firmly disagree with the notion that only white VA can play white characters and only black VA can play black characters. Samurai jack was played by a black guy, and no one noticed because that’s what a voice actor does. They are paid to act as all kinds of people. And there isn’t some “voice” that applies to a specific ethnicity unless they are really playing it up in which case you call that out as a racist caricature

Trust me. He's legitimate to make that joke on that topic. But you didn't reply to the question: Who's paying ? And who's getting paid ? That question is important, because a lot of countries which had a colonial empire also have a sizeable population from ex-colonies descent. To make it simple: Are you asking people, including especially people from ex-colonies descent, to pay corrupt governments for stuff they didn't do, and even worse, their ancestors suffered from ?
