    Covid and Conspi

    This is mad and many seem to believe it. It used to be on the fringe but pandemic moved it to the mainstream https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-08-03/5g-conspiracy-theory-investigation-coronavirus-health/12507368

    America on Fire

    As much as I can understand the anti colonial sentiment, it's still not a good excuse to not accept progressive attitudes. A friend of mine researched about migrants and refugees who are stuck Indonesia after their failed journey to Australia. The Indonesians attitude towards these migrants, who...

    You are having a go at BLM movement because some of supporters called out Rowling's anti trans comments? Have you read recently that Trans activist stood up for her when the Sun tabloid published a story of her ex with the headline: I slapped JK and I am not sorry.

    I couldn't agree more with you on this one. Her rant on looting is funny. The detractors of the BLM protests are so obsessed with looting in the solidarity protests for George Floyd and ignore the fact that majority of marches are peaceful. If those right wings are so concerned about the...

    Not sure if the term 'oreo' is appropriate considering our subject in hand is racial inequality towards black people in the US and the rest of the world.

    I think this is a bit of a stretch. Those statues are seen as a symbol of European colonialism - a violent system under which white privileges were born out. The removal of those statues is therefore a symbolic movement of dismantling the system. Isn't it ironic to call the US and UK a place...

    What also scary and disturbing is how right leaning black people such as Candace Owens and Brandon Tatum spout their views on BLM movement and dismiss that systemic racism does exist. This does not exclusively happen in the US. Some right wing indigenous activists in Australia also doubt that...

    Well I can pull out some other familiar names for younger generation. Sudanese model Akech Bior won't be seen as beautiful by Indonesians. This is a country where K-Pop stars and whitening cream are sought after. Now imagine being a Papuan in Indonesia.

    Yep. Many Indonesians have a specific criteria of beauty and Papuans and black skin are not part of it. You can do a survey asking Indonesians if Naomi Campbell is beautiful? I can surmise that many will say not.

    Ah someone is familiar with my way of thinking. That might partially explain why the other officers didn't do anything to stop Derek from kneeling down on Floyd's neck.

    Yep agree with this. We have more cases of the Aus police racially profiling Indigenous people up north in NT and WA. David Dungay's case resurfaced as his desperate final plea was 'I can't breath', exactly the same words that came out of Floyd. But I found it really upsetting that some still...

    Not entirely sure if the whole issue of police brutality against African Americans comes down to a few bad apples within the corps. There seems to be a pattern of killing unarmed black people in the US. Eric Garner, Stephon Clarke, Breonna Taylor, Amadou Diallo and many more were unarmed...

    DON'T PANIC.... well, maybe a little bit.

    The US found the vaccine for the novel virus.
