shoppingWhileBlack“Shopping while black” is the “crime” of shopping while being a black person. It is not supposed to be a crime but you would not know it the way some shopkeepers seem to assume you are going to take something the minute their back is turned.

In one well-known example a woman and two of her friends from work went to Old Navy during lunch. They were respectably dressed. But despite that when they entered the store the police were informed of a “gang of shoplifters” – based on little more than the fact that the three women were black.  The police came and held them for 90 minutes even though they had shoplifted nothing.

It is not just “certain blacks” either – most blacks in America have had the experience of being followed or closely watched while shopping, of not being trusted. One black woman put it this way:

Yesterday, I received word of some horrible bombings by Islamic militants in India. 13 were killed and 70 were injured. Not a peep of this on the news. Islam is cutting a bloody swath across the planet and the media is giving us shiny things to chase after as distractions. So much for Peace be Upon Him and all that. Jihadists are murdering innocent Hindus and no one seems to care.

Then, even more comes to light as 4 are killed in Bangladesh in a violent ‘Bloggers Riot‘:

Four killed in ‘blasphemous bloggers’ riot in Bangladesh, AFP, February 23, 2013 (thanks to Kenneth)

BANGLADESH police fired live rounds in fierce clashes with Islamists demanding the execution of bloggers they accuse of blasphemy.

Two people were shot dead by police in the northwestern town of Palashbari, and two others died elsewhere, police said.

Parts of the capital Dhaka were turned into a battlefield as thousands of protesters attacked police with bricks and sticks in front of the national mosque. Officers there retaliated with rubber bullets and tear gas.

The country’s 12 Islamic parties called the protests after Friday prayers in nearly half a million mosques nationwide, demanding the execution of bloggers whom they say blasphemed Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

Tensions have risen in the Muslim-majority nation over allegedly anti-Islamic blog posts by Ahmed Rajib Haider, who was hacked to death last week near his home in Dhaka.

And while the world turns a blind eye to the bloody massacres in India, the Mughalistan Project takes shape. It is the Islamic Pakistan-Bangladesh plan to split India. The plan is being billed as Mughalistan – An undivided Islamic nation in the Indian Subcontinent. Pakistan and Bangladesh would be connected through a land corridor running across the Indo-Gangetic plain, the heartland of India.

In 1947, India was partitioned into two countries based on religion – India for Hindus and Pakistan for Muslims. Pakistan had two parts to it – West and East. West is now Pakistan, East is now Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971 occurred and a declaration of independence was made. Muslims wanted a corridor between the two countries in 1947 to unite the country and now want it again to ensure that Bangladesh becomes Islamic. For a full explanation of this Project, read here.

Islam has totally infiltrated India. India has 29 member states and 7 union territories. Kashmir now has a population that is 97% Muslim. This has happened by highly aggressive conversions, marriages and brutal violence. Muslims now own around 100 districts in India and what they don’t own, they are now trying to take by converting owners to Islam, by using violence to drive the Hindus out or by outright theft.

In West Bengal, out of their 19 districts, 5 are now Muslim and the takeover is growing rapidly. Islam composes 40% of the population there now. In Assam, out of their 21 districts, 8 are now a Muslim majority. There are thousands of no-go areas – these are areas that only Muslims may venture into and where sharia law rules. In Uttar Pradesh, the largest state in India, the Islamic population is now 25%. In Bihar, it is 20%. Kerala – 30%. And in Jammu, it is 40%. These are the most violent territories and it is spreading like wildfire. These numbers were given to me by others living in India. In the US, we are worried about Mosques and Madrassas. In India, their entire country is being invaded; converting hundreds of Hindus every day by force and the rape of Hindu women is commonplace.

According to the last census in India, the Muslim population was 13.4%. My sources tell me it is actually closer to 35%.

If Mughalistan becomes a reality (and it looks like it is well on its way to being one), it will be the largest Islamic Republic on the planet and it will take the whole of eastern, northeastern and northern India as part of its domain. Mughalistan will be an independent homeland for the Muslims of India and it will become part of the upcoming caliphate.

 

 

From Creeping Sharia:

Mughalistan (or Mughalstan) is the name of an independent homeland proposed for the Muslims of India. This Mughal-Muslim state in the Indian subcontinent will include all of North India and Eastern India, and will be formed by merging Pakistan and Bangladesh through a large corridor of land running across the Indo-Gangetic plain, the heartland of India. This Mughalistan corridor will comprise Muslim-majority areas of Northern India and eastern India that will be partitioned for the second time in history.

MughalistanThe comprehensive plan for a second partition of India was first developed by the Mughalstan Research Institute (MRI) of Jahangir Nagar University (Bangladesh) under the patronage of the two intelligence agencies, Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and Bangladesh’s Director General of Forces Intelligence, DGFI. The “Mughalistan Reaserch Institute of Bangladesh” has released a map where a Muslim corridor named “Mughalistan” connects Pakistan and Bangladesh via India.

This Greater Mughalistan is of strategic significance as it will provide a contiguous, strategic corridor linking the Ummah into a pan-Islamic Caliphate. The ISI-DGFI-Indian Jihadi triumvirate has fondly nicknamed this pan-Islamic Caliphate as Islamistan (meaning “Land of Islam”), a synonym for `Islamic World’ or `Dar-ul-Islam’. This geographical Islamic crescent will link the Islamic Middle-East to Islamic South-East Asia, with the new Islamic World stretching all the way from Morocco and Bosnia in the West to Malaysia and Indonesia in the East.

Jihad manifests its hideous visage in many forms on the Indian Subcontinent as it does all over the world. What we see happening in India, Africa and other countries is a preview of events to come in the US if we are not vigilant within our borders. Islam targets and converts as many as possible and once you convert, you can never go back on penalty of death. It’s another perk of sharia law, along with removing hands and other appendages as well as hanging, stoning and beheading. Jihadists practice ‘Love Jihad’ where they target women for the sole purpose of expanding the Islamic Umma. Peaceful Hindus are murdered for their land. Slavery is common – it is called ‘Bonded Labor,’ where landlords in Pakistan chain people to their work. These slaves get one meal a day at gunpoint. They are forbidden to travel or marry. Political Jihad takes the place of rights for the Hindus. The Islamists are hellish overlords. Any religion even rumored to be worshiped outside of Islam by families will get them charged with blasphemy, which is punishable by death.

The recent bombings in Canning and Hyderabad, destroyed holy shrines and entire villages. If you speak out against them, they hunt you down and kill you. It’s that simple. And the West is complicit in keeping the conquest by Islam quiet through the simple device of deliberate media ignorance. It reminds me of those who ignored the Jews being slaughtered. For shame. Censorship and propaganda abound, just as they are beginning to take hold in the US. India not only needs help, her plight should be a rude awakening for America. We’re on the Islamic dance card.

Islam (the religion of “peace”) has discovered for itself the simple truth: violence works. In a modern world of “anti-bullying” rhetoric, no one wants to see the real bully for who he is, the sharia thug enforcer of Islam. Hoping that “maybe if we don’t look at him or talk about him he’ll leave us alone,” has never worked. It didn’t work for the victims of the pogroms, it didn’t work for those gulag-bound souls in Russia, nor again in the Asian countries conquered by assorted communists. The frightened and cowed common man and his family do their best to pretend there are no monsters, but the monsters are real, and they ravage and pillage as they come.

Islam now holds all of Western civilization in contempt. Islam knows no one has the courage to stand in its way and call its name as the monstrosity it is. Islam comes for its prey with sword and gun, shackle and manacle, prison and grave. Of course, there’s always the “easy way.” You can always just give up — and be assimilated by the Muslim Borg.

Would you want to live this way? No, you wouldn’t and our brothers and sisters in India should not be forced into this Islamic nightmare either. A not-so-silent bloody coup is going on in India while the world turns their back on peace-loving Hindus. Behold, Mughalistan and the caliphate are rising.

North Sudan’s cracking down on Christians in their latest war against non-Muslims and non-Arabs

North Sudan’s genocidal war against non-muslims continues in their quest to islamise and arabize the country. The Arab League and the OIC looking the other way

Having deported scores of foreign Christians and demolished several church buildings in the past few months, Sudan continued ridding the country of Christianity this week by raiding Christian bookshops in Khartoum and arresting Christians, sources said.

Men who described themselves as agents of Khartoum State Security on Monday (Feb. 18) confiscated books, films and archives from the Evangelical Literature Centre, part of the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SPEC) denominational headquarters, church leaders said.

“They took everything – not a single sheet of paper was left on the shelves,” said one church leader. “They took the cinema, old movies and tapes and archives. They filled a big truck with our stuff from the ELC.”

When SPEC leaders asked the security agents why they were taking the items away, they replied that they had “orders from above” to confiscate all Christian books, the church leaders said. The clergymen said they understood this to mean the government intends to make Sudan a solely Islamic country.

In the course of the raid, security personnel beat a church leader for taking photos, sources said. The following day (Feb. 19), national security agents arrested the church leader, whose name is withheld, and his whereabouts remained unknown at press time, a pastor told Morning Star News.

Prior to the raid, authorities of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) in Khartoum state sent a letter to SPEC leaders informing them of their plan to search the premises for Christian literature, according to the church leaders. They described the move as unlawful and unacceptable.

Security agents later confiscated two containers full of Christian books and Bibles at the SPEC headquarters adjoining the Evangelical Literature Centre.

Church leaders hope to meet with an official from the Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowment about the raid. SPEC officials have decided to hold regular prayer meetings at the depleted Evangelical Literature Center.

“We continue to pray for God to strengthen our faith in these difficult times,” a church leader told Morning Star News by phone.

In a related incident, national security agents on Feb. 14 went to an academic institution in Khartoum, forced open a container and confiscated Christian literature, a source said.

“They took three cartons of books,” he said.

In addition, NISS agents on Feb. 15 went to another bookstore, whose name is withheld, and confiscated Christian books, sources said. Three Christians were arrested, including one foreigner; they were still in custody at press time.

In the past month authorities have also summoned church youth group leaders for interrogation, sources said. At least three were held for days, and after their release they have been ordered to report to NISS offices every day.

Authorities have arrested at least 55 Christians this month, according to aid and advocacy organization Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW). The detained Christians have been falsely accused of receiving money from foreign countries, CSW reported, adding that a crackdown on Christians that began at the end of last year has led to the deportation of about 100 foreign workers.

Harassment, violence and arrests of Christians have intensified since the secession of South Sudan in July 2011, when President Omar al-Bashir vowed to adopt a stricter version of sharia (Islamic law) and recognize only Islamic culture and the Arabic language. South Sudanese have been ordered to leave the country following the new republic’s secession, but thousands are reportedly stranded in the north due to loss of jobs,poverty, transportation limitations and ethnic and tribal conflict in South Sudan.

South Sudanese Christians in Sudan have faced increased hostilities due to their ethnic origins – though thousands have little or no ties to South Sudan – as well as their faith.

Churches Demolished
Besides arresting and deporting foreign Christians, the government has also demolished several church buildings.

Authorities on Jan. 15 and 16 destroyed seven church buildings in or near Khartoum, as well as a health center run by the Sudan Council of Churches (SCC), claiming that they belonged to South Sudanese who are no longer citizens of the country, sources said. Although the properties originated with South Sudanese, they now belong to citizens of Sudan, church leaders said.

“Christians in north Sudan are very worried and in a dangerous situation,” one church leader said.

The demolished buildings belonged to Roman Catholic, Presbyterian Church of Sudan, Africa Inland Church, Episcopal Church of Sudan, Sudan Pentecostal Church and Seventh-day Adventist congregations, along with the SCC health center, sources said. Most of the buildings were in the Soba al Aradi area on the outskirts of Khartoum.

A pastor whose identity is withheld was arrested during a church service last month, the sources said; he was released after a few hours. Security personnel arrested two other leaders and a pastor’s wife at another church on Jan. 22, accusing them of links to a Christian school in Omdurman, across the Nile from Khartoum.

The three Christians were still in custody at press time, the sources said.

North Dakota high school investigating fans in Ku Klux Klan-style white robes and hoods

 

link

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A North Dakota high school principal says appropriate action is being taken after three students briefly donned Ku Klux Klan-style white robes and hoods Friday night during a state hockey semifinal game.

The photo caused an uproar on Twitter when it was posted by 19-year-old Shane Schuster, who was seated with some friends at Ralph Engelstad Arena when something in the student section across the rink caught his eye.

“I thought, ‘Are those KKK hoods?’ I couldn’t believe it,” Schuster said. “I was shocked.”

Schuster said he focused his camera phone and snapped a photo, later uploading it to Twitter.

Kristopher Arason, Red River’s principal, said the school’s investigation determined that the students put on the attire just after Red River’s first goal and wore it for about 30 seconds to a minute. The teens removed the outfits after students in the section told them it was offensive, he said.

“We, as a school, are extremely disappointed with the behavior of these three students,” Arason said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Saturday. “This behavior is not a representation of our school or student body.”

Arason said administrators were notified of the incident at the completion of the game. The students and their parents have been contacted and “appropriate action is being taken,” he said.

Arason did not indicate what disciplinary action, if any, the three unidentified students could face.

Red River topped Fargo’s Davies High School 2-0 to advance to Saturday night’s North Dakota Boys State Hockey Tournament title game against Grafton-Park River.

Davies High School is named in honor of Ronald Davies, the former federal judge from Fargo whose 1957 rulings integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. — a pivotal event in the civil rights movement.

The photo that Schuster posted on the social media site shows the three hooded fans in the middle of the Red River Roughriders section, in which everyone is dressed in white as part of a “whiteout.” The post had been retweeted 75 times by late Saturday afternoon, with many users expressing their outrage.

The hockey tradition of encouraging fans to all wear all white was started more than 25 years ago by the original Winnipeg Jets — which currently are the Phoenix Coyotes. In 1987, Jets fans donning white shirts and jerseys packed Winnipeg Arena to watch the team take on the Calgary Flames in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The practice has since spread to the college and high school levels.

Arason said Red River has a tradition of wearing a different color for each of the three days of the state tournament in accordance with the team’s colors. Roughrider fans wore black for the first day, white for the second and red for the final day.

 

Why Toronto’s plan to give illegal immigrants sanctuary is nuts: Walkom

link

 

Toronto council’s decision to declare the city a sanctuary for illegal immigrants is both irrelevant and misguided.

It is irrelevant because services the city alone administers are already available to all Torontonians, legal or otherwise.

It is misguided because it is based on the assumption that Canada should have no border controls whatsoever, that anyone in the world who wants to come and live in this country should have the right to do so without hindrance.

That’s an assumption I doubt most Canadians accept, particularly at a time when the federal Conservative government is already using immigration loopholes to push down wages.

The fact that Toronto city council passed the sanctuary motion overwhelmingly Thursday underscores its irrelevance. Toronto council likes nothing better than passing feel-good resolutions in areas over which it has no jurisdiction. Motions decrying the war in Vietnam come to mind.

The sanctuary resolution is firmly in this tradition. It requires city officials to ignore a person’s immigration status when providing services. But that’s the case already.

You do not need a passport to borrow books from Toronto’s library system. What you do need is something like a phone bill to prove you live here rather than in, say, Mississauga.

Nor do you need papers to ride the subway, have your garbage collected or drive on city-maintained streets.

By law, schools are not supposed to discriminate on the basis of legal status. Some once did. But the Toronto District School Board agreed six years ago to end the practice.

Since 2006, Toronto police have agreed not to ask witnesses to or victims of crime about their residency status — unless there is an overwhelming reason to do so.

In some areas of provincial or federal jurisdiction, immigration status does matter. Those who are not legal Canadian residents don’t qualify for publicly subsidized medicare and must pay out of pocket for health services.

Similarly, those who haven’t lived legally in Canada for the required number of years can’t collect federal old age pensions. Nor can illegals obtain welfare.

Do these rules discriminate against those who are neither Canadian citizens nor legal residents? Yes, they do. Are such rules reasonable? Yes again.

Or at least they are reasonable if you believe the country needs some border controls. Right-wing libertarians do not. They hold that borders should be wide open so as to allow business to import low-wage labour whenever it pleases.

Canada’s Conservative federal government has expanded its so-called temporary skilled foreign worker program for exactly this purpose. In Alberta, doughnut shops are using “skilled” foreign workers to pour coffee. In British Columbia, one coal mining firm is refusing to hire Canadians and is instead bringing in temporary, low-wage Chinese workers.

Ottawa specifically allows employers to pay such foreign workers less than the going wage rate.

Given that many temporary workers overstay their visas, this part of the immigration system is destined to create a reserve army of low-wage, undocumented labour — which is reportedly what is happening in Toronto.

So what to do? For hard-boiled, free marketeers, scrapping all border controls might be the answer. For the rest of us, the solution is a more coherent immigration system.

First, scrap the temporary worker programs. My guess is that higher wages would solve a host of labour shortages. But if Canada really does have a dearth of nannies, fruit-pickers, plumbers, and doughnut-shop baristas, let them enter as permanent residents on an assured path to citizenship rather than as temporary low-wage help.

Then they wouldn’t be nervous about getting library cards. And then Toronto city council could get back to dealing with matters over which it has some control.

New Study Indicates Broadway Shows Employ Higher Percentage of Minority Actors Than Not-for-Profit Sector

New Study Indicates Broadway Shows Employ Higher Percentage of Minority Actors Than Not-for-Profit Sector

By Andrew Gans
15 Feb 2013

A new study released by the Asian American Performers Action Coalition finds that the not-for-profit sector lags behind the commercial Broadway sector in terms of hiring minority actors.

 

The study focused on the top 16 not-for-profit theatre companies in New York City.

In the 2011-12 season, African-American actors were cast in 16 percent of all roles, Hispanic American/Latino actors in 3 percent and Asian-American actors in 3 percent (others, including Arab American/Middle Eastern and Native American actors, comprised 1 percent). Caucasian actors filled 77 percent of all roles at these not-for-profit companies.

On Broadway minority actors filled 25 percent of all roles for the past two years, the highest percentage in the six years studied in the report. In fact, African-American representation hit a six-year high this past season at 19 percent. Asian Americans increased a percentage point over the previous year to 3 percent.

The non-profits, which had once consistently hired more actors of color than the commercial sector (reaching a high of 27 percent during the 2008-09 season), have fallen below the industry average of 20 percent for the second year in a row, landing at 19 percent this past year.

The following are this year’s rankings for the most and least diverse among the 16 companies based on percentages of actors of color employed:

MOST DIVERSE
1. SIGNATURE THEATRE (46.4%)
2. ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY (29.5%)
3. VINEYARD THEATRE (28.6%)
4. PLAYWRIGHTS HORIZONS (27.8%)
5. NEW YORK THEATRE WORKSHOP (25%)

LEAST DIVERSE
*1. YORK THEATRE COMPANY (0%)
2. CLASSIC STAGE COMPANY (2.9%)
3. PRIMARY STAGES (5.6%)
4. ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY (6.1%)
5. MCC THEATER (7.7%)

*[The York Theatre Company disputes its rating. Artistic director James Morgan said in a statement, “We are always delighted to find areas we can improve what we do, but we are actually extremely proud of our record in diverse casting over the years, and find this recent charge of 0% diverse casting not only unfounded but ludicrous.” Among the diverse group of actors to have worked at the Off-Broadway company this past year are Krystal Joy BrownStephanie Umoh, Gilbert Bailey, John-Michael Lyles, Angela Grovey, Alton Fitzgerald White, Anastacia McClesky, Janet DacalNicholas Rodriguez and Rafael Rodriguez. For its part, the AAPAC said its study only took into account full productions; readings, workshops and the York’s Musical in Mufti series were not included.]

The report also tracked the number of minority actors cast in roles not racially-specific (non-traditional casting): Only 10 percent of all roles received by actors of color were not defined by the color of their skin. The theatre companies with the highest percentage of roles cast non-traditionally follow:

MOST INCLUSIVE CASTING
1. PUBLIC THEATER (19.2%)
2. THEATRE FOR A NEW AUDIENCE (13.3%)
3. MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB (13%)
4. SECOND STAGE COMPANY (12.5%)
5. VINEYARD THEATRE (7.1%)
