Indianapolis newspaper alters, then deletes racist Thanksgiving cartoon following complaints

 

Responding to criticism that a cartoon depicting undocumented immigrants coming through a window to share Thanksgiving dinner with a white family was racist, an Indiana newspaper edited out the stereotyped housebreaker’s mustache, ostensibly to make the cartoon seem less racist.

This is what #xenophobia, #racism and white supremacist patriarchy look like – the cartoonist and the white family in the cartoon.

 

The dad is holding the turkey as if he did all the cooking.

 

And Instead of inviting Latino guests or Native Americans to their dinner, they the cartoonist depicts that Latinos are breaking into their house – because, you know, all Latinos are criminals.

 

The doctrine of white supremacy does this. It always flips the script to make white people appear as the norm and the law abiding while making people of color appear as invaders and law breakers.  And Euro-Americans do all this while living on Amerindian land.

 

How New York Schools Are Deterring Immigrants From Enrollment

At least 86 school districts in New York are requiring documents that some immigrant children do not have and discouraging enrollment as a result, a New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) survey found Thursday. Some schools are even reportedly turning kids away. An earlier review found that 139 districts were out of compliance with the law in their 2010 survey, but four years on, the majority of those schools still require information or proof of residency that could have a “chilling effect” on immigrants who are too afraid to register because of their immigration status, a move that could be in violation of federal law.

“Today’s survey demonstrates that the State Education Department (SED) has failed to enforce its own guidelines regarding immigrant student enrollment, despite being aware of the problems for years,” the NYCLU press release read in part.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1982 that public schools cannot deny undocumented immigrants a public education on account of their legal status.

Massacres in Mexico underscore government collusion with cartels

 

Two recent massacres tell the story of human rights failures in Mexico. One massacre was committed by municipal police in Iguala, the second one by Mexican soldiers in Tlatlaya. Both occurred in areas teeming with crime, and activists have linked each one to a government increasingly powerless against drug cartels and violence.
