view: prejudice and violence against africans tarnish india's image


by amulya gangulithe continued presence of insensate prejudice and brutal violence in public life has again been highlighted by the recent attacks on african students in greater noida in uttar pradesh, a township near new delhi. with its well-kept and well-lit roads, bustling malls and shopping arcades and rows of high-rise residential complexes, greater noida -- like gurugram in haryana -- is typical of a booming india whose affluent citizenry have been compared by nobel laureate amartya sen with the denizens of california. but in the midst of the razzmatazz lurk ill-bred and ill-educated louts ready to vent their spleen on anyone who either rouses their antipathy, like africans or people from india's northeast with their mongoloid features, or looks to the ruffians like an easy prey lik.

india failed to deter xenophobic, racist attacks: african envoys | india news

the remarkable referendum of 1992


south africans were asked: do you support continuation of the reform process which the state president [fw de klerk] began on 2 february 1990?”on 17 march 1992 an absolutely remarkable referendum — it could easily be called “shocking” — was held in south africa.to be sure, only white south africans were entitled to respond to the single question put to the electorate for a direct decision on that tuesday 25 years ago.but we must recall that south africans of colour had never been properly enfranchised. post-1910 there had existed a few tiny cracks in the monolith of white political power. but by 1953 the national party (np) had removed coloured (mixed-race) people from the common voters’ roll in the now western cape and by 1960 the law allowing a few (black) africans to have a ...






tackling our own inner prejudice


with few exceptions, most of us like to believe that we are without prejudice. we like to think that we are blind to colour, race, culture and creed and that we see people as individuals and not as a product of a type. as a co-founder of an anti-hate group, who regularly speaks up about tackling prejudice within a wide range of different communities, it is very important to me personally that i remain prejudice free and supportive of other people's rights to be who they are without being judged. however, i had an experience the other week that made me question my own perception of others and which illustrated to me very clearly that even within the most liberal, open minded, accepting kind of person there can be hidden prejudice lurking beneath the surface.the event that raised my concern.

in italy, politicians court votes by stoking racism against romanians


luigi di maio of the five star movement at a news conference in rome on march 23. (alessandro bianchi/reuters)milan — when people think of racism and xenophobia in italy, what comes to mind is usually prejudice toward arabs, africans and other easily identifiable minorities. but romanians have become one of the major targets of xenophobic abuse here — despite the fact that the two countries are both european union members that have similar languages and cultures.a high-profile example of that prejudice occurred earlier in april, when a prominent italian politician falsely accused romania of exporting almost half of its criminals to italy, then blamed the european union for making it possible.“italy has imported 40 percent of [their] criminals from romania. while romania is importin...






dnd 5e - water weird attack weirdness


my players fought a water weird last night, and it's attack as written on page 299 of the monster manual is rather complex. first, you make an roll as normal, and do bludgeoning damage. if the target is medium or smaller, it's grappled so it's speed becomes 0 and it has all the other effects of that condition. the target is also pulled 5 feet towards the water weird. while the grapple is in effect, the target is also restrained. the effects of that condition are the target's speed becomes 0, which is redundant with being grappled, the creature has disadvantage to hit, but advantage to be hit, and the creature has disadvantage on dexterity save. also, the water weird's grapple includes the notation "...(escape dc 13)...". however, the rules for escaping a grapple are that a contested...

exploring britain's african connections | the huffington post


growing up as a child of ghanaian origin in england, i often wondered why school history lessons never made mention of africans other than them being slaves. i remember vividly those awkward classroom sessions (as the only black girl in the class), where i'd feel eyes boring into me as the teacher droned on about these poor africans forced on to ships to the americas.no explanation was given about what preceded that momentous trans-atlantic slave trading period. and no acknowledgement of the impact africans (such as fante-born 18th century slave abolitionist quobna ottobah cugaono, and igbo-born abolitionist olaudah equiano) made in shaping the modern world. this omission said more to me about this massive gulf i was being forced to breach. i was schooled to believe that highly developed .
