Trump hasn't even built his wall yet and it's already earmarked for dismantling.

They tried that once. Ask Czeckoslovakia.

You of all people invoking Godwin, tres drole.

Are you really suggesting that a NAZI occupation is the same as a black civil rights struggle?

I've seen a lot of racially hateful things on here, but that really takes the biscuit!

This is not primarily a civil rights struggle any more. It has been co-opted by extreme and militant leftists trying to shoehorn in everything they believe in.

I think he has settled for a wire fence around the white house. Keeps the little boy happy!

You think? I don't know if it's always that organised... I've seen a video with Columbus' decapitated statue and some white women chanting some "amerindian songs" (I doubt, I mean - in this case I can do that too) and dancing around it. Oh, and one male dressed as native American, it seemed more like what teenagers left without supervision on a wild school trip would do.

Lets look at it this way. If there were 12% Afro Americans in CH like in USA then the discrination would be exactly the same if not worse than USA

Perhaps for guilt-ridden whites who want to call themselves 'allies'.

Re: The racial time bomb-USA

SRF Arena on Friday night turned out to be a disaster. The theme was "Now blacks are talking" - except 3 of the 4 main panelists in the front row were white and the blacks were relegated to the back row. The only black panelist in the front row was a comedian. One of the panelists was Gabriella Binkert, a mixed-race SVP Nationalrat from Graubunden. Even her bias showed when she said (paraphrasing) "Black is entirely black, not mixed race. I'm not black."

We're watching it now, it's pretty bad. It was horribly biased from the start, and now the token black guests are essentially defending racism they have experienced, while Binkert and the white guests (including a Trump mouthpiece) are essentially claiming there's no racism in Switzerland.

Blick article: https://www.blick.ch/news/politik/au...d15935103.html

Imagine such a show in the USA paid for with tax dollars.

But would that be because if the Afro bit, or the American bit?

No, I am not guilt ridden. Why should I be? People were largely the products of their time and age. I am not responsible for the genes that I have inherited or the sins committed by ancestors long gone.
What happened in the past has gone. We should just face up seeing as it was.
What is important is what happens now.
Today with our education, we have no excuse for continuing racism.

I think it's a good idea to make kids more aware of their history, but what about older generations who have benefited and profited from being white in a white supremacist world.

Shouldn't they be doing more to recognize their privilege, be an ally and perhaps give something back?
