The Dead African Americans are now sees as Martyrs of racism equivalent to the holy prophet and the Police are equivalent to "Christ Killers"
With what is being put forward by BLM types is it actually possible to follow their guidelines without being a weird combination of a segregationist and an Ethnomasochist.
These are just five of the many black people [ who died for our sins.]
How many Shetland folk can tell me they know these names and the systemic injustices which have caused their death?
When the Black Lives Matter movement rose to prominence around the globe, the Shetland staands group made a push for racial equality within Shetland. While this garnered a shocking amount of support throughout the isles, our local council showed little interest in ending this abhorrent system we, as white people, have perpetuated. Whilst many, through lack of racial education, do not understand the racially unjust system we exist in and benefit from as white people.
This pandemic has proved challenging for many of us, myself included. However, it is impacting the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) communities at a much higher rate than any other. We must act to change the racist system we have grown up through and benefitted from, at the expense of non-white people, to prevent even more senseless deaths in the future.
Notice it is always nonspecific there is never an instance example of what needs to be changed besides conversion to BLM "Join our religion and be saved"
REPENT REPENT AND EMBRACE OUR LORD AND SAVIOR GEORGE FLOYD WHO WAS MURDERED BY OUR SINS & SINFUL NATURE!
In a time where Shetland is struggling to attract young, working age families to the isles to work and grow their families, shouldn’t we be striving to cultivate a community which celebrates our differences and defends those who are being systematically trodden on?
The livelihood of the Shetland economy and its future depends on the community embracing the Black Lives Matter movement and providing an example of what it truly means to abolish racism from our lives.
Transport/Infrastructure, Gainful employment, Suitable housing where it is needed and profitability of local enterprises who provide employment aren't racial issues.
Also the fact that besides people who have worked on the oil rigs most of people in the mainland UK without any familial or work connection to Shetland barely know anything of Shetland and also lots of people are total wimps about the cold, thus Shetland isnt a place they would move to.
When i was first talking to people about Jobs advertised in Shetland i was told that they had in the past interviewed and tried to hire people from the Mainland but they ended up not moving and showing up for work,
they told me to call back once i was living i Shetland.
Low Vacancy rate of rentals and shortage of cheap housing near potential work seems like a bigger factor than racism.
Praying away racism isn't going to change that, Its just feel good nonsense
People have a tendency to move to larger cities in search of work but the fact that they aren't finding any there has reversed the trend and caused people to move from cities to rural areas and this was true back in 2019
Lockdowns may price working age people out because people with savings and paid off houses will move first and can do so regardless of what jobs are in the area.
This pandemic has proved challenging for many of us, myself included. However, it is impacting the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) communities at a much higher rate than any other.
Would things look the same if we compared other races to white people of similar income, occupation and status instead of amalgamating into 2 teams Team diverse, Stunning and brave and team Non-diverse untouchable(racist as an inherited original sin)
Are they saying that nonwhites aren't part of the wider communities be it Village, Neighborhood, group of friends etc
and who is Indigenous to Subarctic European Islands?
