“But?!?! I Can’t Be Racist Because…” [SHORT FILM]

“But?!?! I Can’t Be Racist Because is the first short film brought to you by theliberatedzonetv to commemorate the 47th anniversary since Malcolm X’s assassination.

“But?!?! We Can’t Be Racist Because…” touches on the issues in a day-to-day and global context of white supremacy in order to try to open up the in-depth discussion and understanding that we need so desperately.

Is racism a thing of the past?

Are white people victims of racism too?

Do you feel uncomfortable/awkward when white people emulate Black culture?

Does Black culture ‘belong’ to everyone?

Does suffering in Africa have nothing to do with people living in Europe?

Are YOU aware of how you fit into the white supremacist structure enforced by imperialism?

CAN WE SPEAK OPENLY AND HONESTLY ABOUT RACISM?

Please use this as a resource and the comments by co-producers Shamim Kisakye, Iman Hussein and Lizzie Phelan in education establishments, youth and community groups and amongst your friends in order to open up the discussion about the modern day manifestations of white supremacy.

If you would like co-producers Iman Hussein, Shamim Kisakye and Lizzie Phelan to come and discuss this film in a community or institutional setting, please contact theliberatedzone1957@gmail.com

This film was made with NO funding. To support further work like this please donate via www.lizzie-phelan.blogspot.com

Israeli Apartheid: Tourists venture to West Bank to 'shoot terrorists'

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

The white supremacists in Israel take the next step beyond “Trayvon Martin shooting targets.”

Summer camp, warfare style: Like a frozen turkey plunged into boiling oil, a group of American tourists descend from an air-conditioned van into the scorching heat of the West Bank. Flashing smiles all around, they march into Caliber 3, a local shooting range. 

“Move it!” the Israeli guide suddenly yells. “Destroy that terrorist,” he orders them, and they charge, guns loaded, at cardboard targets. 

Gush Etzion has become a hot destination in recent months for tourists seeking an Israeli experience like no other: The opportunity to pretend-shoot a terror operative. Residents of the nearby settlements, who run the site, offer day-trippers a chance to hear stories from the battleground, watch a simulated assassination of terrorists by guards, and fire weapons at the range.

The shameful deeds of the British State in Derry on January 30th will always be remembered as Bloody Sunday, but often forgotten are its shameful deeds of January 31st 1919, or ‘Bloody Friday’.

“On Friday 31 January 1919 upwards of 60,000 demonstrators gathered in George Square in support of the 40-hours strike and to hear the Lord Provost’s reply to the workers’ request for a 40-hour week. Whilst the deputation was in the building the police mounted a vicious and unprovoked attack on the demonstrators, felling unarmed men and women with their batons. The demonstrators, with the ex-servicemen to the fore, quickly retaliated with fists, iron railings and broken bottles, and forced the police into a retreat.”
“An estimated 10000 English troops in total were sent to Glasgow in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of George Square. This was in spite of a full battalion of Scottish soldiers being stationed at Maryhill barracks in Glasgow at the time. No Scottish troops were deployed, with the government fearing that fellow Scots, soldiers or otherwise, would go over to the workers side if a revolutionary situation developed in Glasgow.
 
On 10 February 1919 the 40-hours strike was called off by the Joint Strike Committee. Whilst not achieving their stated aim of a 40-hour working week, the striking workers from the engineering and shipbuilding industries did return to work having at least negotiated an agreement that guaranteed them a 47-hour working week; 10 hours less than they were working prior to the strike.”

Reverse Racism is a myth created by racist white people

brazenbitch:

Who believe that sporadic, interpersonal acts of hostility from people of color is equivalent or relevant to the struggle of people of color from oppression.

Even if a person of color is hateful against white people, it has nothing to do with the thought of whites being inferior to people of color, but rather backlash from the harm whiteness has caused non whites, and non white cultures. 

We are enraged that our land has been stolen and occupied 

We are furious that our people are treated as second citizens, IF citizens at all 

We are infuriated that we are forced to assimilate, apologize, and dismiss racism in our lives for the sake of solidarity, to get jobs, to be successful, to be heard. 

So excuse us if we are belligerent, if we are militant in our speech and actions. We can’t afford to be otherwise.
