Patriotism is for Black People – Donald Trump and the Selectivity of White Rage – by Tim Wise

Patriotism is for Black People: Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump and the Selectivity of White Rage

August 30, 2016 – by Tim Wise

US PatriotismSo just in case you were wondering, when a white man bellows that America is no longer great, and in fact is akin to a third world country, and that many other countries are better than we are at all kinds of things — and this is why we should elect him, so he can “make America great again,” because right now, we’re sorta suckin’ wind — that is the height of patriotism. The kind of talk we need! The kind of nationalistic endorsement around which all Americans should be willing to rally.

And when this same man says black people aren’t safe from other black people, and they can’t even walk down the street without getting shot by other black people, and that’s why they specifically should vote for him, so he can make their communities safe, that too is to be understood as a laudable commentary, even an ecumenical “outreach” to African Americans. Because black folks naturally love it when white men tell them how utterly degenerate is their daily existence, having spent exactly zero time in actual black communities so as to know what the hell they’re talking about.       Continue reading

The Walter Roth Museum, Georgetown. Guyana – By Francis Quamina-Farrier

The Walter Roth Museum, Georgetown. Guyana

The announced transfer of the prized Indigenous artifacts from the iconic wooden building on Main Street in North Cummingsburg, Georgetown, is likely the kind of reaction to a plan to demolish those century-old Giant Ant Hills in the Rupununi. From the very first time that it was announced that the Walter Roth Museum of Anthropology in Georgetown was to be transferred to the National Museum, it was met with many fierce objectors; and I am not shy to state clearly, that I am one of those objectors. It was with lots of vision that my former Colleague at the Ministry of Culture, the late Dr. Denis Williams, established that Museum, with professional support by Ms Jennifer Wiltshire, his dedicated Secretary. No one knows quite clearly what is the true reason for the plan to remove all those artifacts – some of which will be damaged beyond repairs with such an unnecessary exercise.   Continue reading
