A Hong Kong newspaper has sparked outrage after the silver medalist who gave Australia's golden girl Ariarne Titmus a run for her money at the Tokyo Olympics was dubbed as a 'mixed-race mermaid Hong Kong swimmer Siobhan Haughey pushed the Australian all the way in the 200 metres freestyle final and led for much of the race before Titmus came storming home to claim her second gold medal within 48 hours

Born to an Irish father and Hong Kong mother, Haughey finished second to take her country's first ever Olympic medal in swimming.

A Chinese state-run publication back home in Hong Kong raised eyebrows with its choice of words to describe the dual Olympian's groundbreaking feat



Even stating a person is “mixed race” is wrong now?  How are we meant to describe them “nicely”? We have to “sweep race under the mat”!

NC dealership calls Black customer ‘Bon Quisha’ on Facebook

Black woman says NC dealership called her derogatory name on Facebook after buying car

A Lumberton, North Carolina car dealership is accused of posting a picture on its Facebook page referring to a Black customer named Trinity Bethune as “Bon Quisha.” As reported by our media partner, ABC11 News. By ABC11

A North Carolina car dealership’s Facebook page has been flooded with comments after it reportedly referred to a Black woman as “Bon Quisha” in a post congratulating her on buying her first car.

The woman’s name is Trinity Bethune.

“I’m not sure if this is a ‘joke’ or something but my name is definitely Trinity Bethune,” she said in a comment on the since-deleted post. “I’m very offended by this post, it’s almost a racial slur. If I’m not addressed by MY name then please don’t address me at all.”

Lumberton Honda issued a statement just before 6 p.m. Friday apologizing for the “inappropriate post” and confirming the person who wrote it no longer works there.

“Lumberton Honda has been a part of the community for over 18 years, serving thousands of customers of all ethnicities,” the dealership said. “This incident reminds us that there is always room for improvement. Again, please accept our sincere apology. We are truly sorry.”

The Facebook post appeared to have been made Thursday. It shows Bethune standing in front of a white Toyota outside the dealership with the caption, “Congratulations to Bon Quisha on her 2016 Toyota Camry.”

Bethune’s brother, Tyrone Jacob, shared a screenshot of the post on his personal Facebook page before it was taken down. He called it “completely intentional, disgusting, unfair.”

“This was not a mistake. With the exception of the letter ‘N,’ her name is spelled using the first row of the keyboard,” Jacob said. “Typing Bon Quisha requires effort and intent. I’m outraged that she was publicly humiliated without a public/private apology.”

Bethune also posted about the incident on her Facebook just before 8 a.m. Eastern time Friday, saying she doesn’t believe the dealership’s actions were an “honest mistake.”

“It was intended as a ‘joke’ I’m assuming,” she said. “I’m very offended. If you know what a ‘Bon Quisha’ (is) you will be also. As a black woman, I carry myself in a way where I will not have to be stereotyped. This is public humiliation and at the LEAST, I deserve an apology.”

Urban Dictionary defines “Bonquisha” as a “loquacious white boy that acts like a Black women as a joke.” It’s also seen as a derogatory term that stereotypes Black people.

Hundreds of people have since commented on Lumberton Honda’s Facebook page demanding an apology or boycott. An advertisement for new APR rates posted on the dealership’s page around 11 a.m. Eastern time Friday has garnered more than 500 comments.

“You might want to Apologize for Blatant racism and disrespect before you post about another car... How dare you!!!” one person said.

“Seriously, this is the first thing you post????” another commented. “How about a public statement on how y’all messed up instead of hocking more cars???”

An older post from July 17 congratulating a couple on their new car has more than 500 comments — mostly from people questioning why the dealership was able to spell their names correctly.

“So apparently it easy to type proper names if your customers are white,” someone said.

I was searching for something totally unrelated to this but yet it popped up in my search anyway. I guess I need to be de-radicalized so I can be more devoted to my rat faced overlords. >:D


Alt_Right White Lite: trolling, hate speech and cyber racism on social media

The spread of cyber racism has become an increasingly prominent issue, from Myanmar to India, from the USA to Africa, and throughout Europe. An Australian study, ‘Cyber Racism and Community Resilience’[1] (Jakubowicz et al., 2017) has recently been completed by an interdisciplinary research team from six Australian universities, in partnership with the Australian Research Council, the Australian Human Rights Commission, VicHealth and the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia, and in conjunction with the Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI). This article draws on that study to reflect on one aspect of online racism, namely antisemitism, and the rise of online neo-nazism. While the full study covers many ethnic, racial and religious groups, antisemitism has been chosen here because the author came across a strong antisemitic attack directed towards him online, and discovered in pursuing its origins some of the real world complexities of fighting racism online.

It's hilarious to me that the word nigger is such a bad/evil word that this news article never mentioned it once and the photo of the receipt has it blurred out.

Whites are "black balled" from society for even repeating the word, but the blacks refer to each other as niggers or niggas (ebonics) at ad nauseam. What an ignorant subspecies and so to are the race traitors that support them.

Racist receipt prompts public apology from Snellville company | News

www.cbs46.com

SNELLVILLE, Ga. (CBS46) — A racist remark on a receipt has prompted an apology from a local adventure park franchise in Snellville.

It all comes after the customer posted a picture of the receipt to Instagram, claiming staff racially discriminated against him.

Stepfan Black said a receipt he received on Saturday ruined his family’s outing at the adventure park.


“They asked me what my name was for the order and I gave them my name,” Black said.

He said he didn’t notice anything strange about his food receipt from the Urban Air Adventure Park until he took a second look.

“I looked at the receipt and I noticed there’s an actual racist word and I really couldn’t believe it to be honest with you.”

Black said when he complained to staff about his less than enjoyable experience, staff took his receipt from him and never gave it back.

“The first thing they offered was to give us free passes to come back and free fries.”

After reaching out to the facility several times, with no response, he said he finally decided to go public by posting a picture he took of the original receipt.

He shared the post with his 16,000 Instagram followers, gaining hundreds of reactions.

“Just to bring awareness to the situation. It’s unacceptable.”

His post prompted a public response from the company.

The company said, in part, that they are a black-owned business that doesn’t tolerate racism, the employee was terminated, and they apologize for what happened.

The company shared a similar statement with CBS46 News.

“I want the owner to know that he has to respect people.”

Mr. Black said he now has an attorney, and they are considering taking legal action in the near future.

German man forced to remove statue at grave of father over resemblance to Hitler

Following complaints, mayor of Weil im Schönbuch orders the figure taken away, though man claims the engraved number '88' has no connection to Hitler

By TOI STAFF27 July 2021, 10:47 am 

A man living in Weil im Schönbuch in southern Germany has been ordered to remove a statue of his father that he placed at his grave after local residents complained it looked like Adolf Hitler.

According to the German news outlet Bild, the man, named Oliver, placed a wooden statue meant to represent his father — who died in 2013 — at his gravesite earlier this month.

The statue had a small mustache and a soccer jersey that bore the number 88 — which is often a white supremacist code meaning Heil Hitler, since H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

According to the New York Post, residents of the town complained about the statue to Mayor Wolfgang Lahl, who instructed Oliver to remove it from the cemetery. Lahl told Bild that he had received numerous complaints about the wooden figure “within a few days.”

The Daily Mail quoted a lawyer for Oliver as saying there was zero connection between the statue and Hitler, and that {his father was an avid soccer player, so he chose to portray his father in a soccer uniform and the number} 88 was chosen because his father lived at number 88 for many years.

According to Bild, state security officials are investigating the incident. It is illegal in Germany to display Nazi symbols outside of educational and historical purposes. Similar rules exist in other European countries, including Austria, Lithuania and Ukraine.

Earlier this year, Amazon altered the new icon for its app after users pointed out that it bore a resemblance to Hitler.
