European accents (and in general white people accents) are commonly perceived as attractive and endearing, while accents from basically any other part of the world are considered to be signs of laziness and disrespect and get routinely made fun of.

Ahead of Toronto’s upcoming municipal elections, Ward 2 candidate Munira Abukar has been the target of racial hatred and vandalism. City councillors, members of the public, and other candidates have outwardly shown support for her on Twitter, including mayoral candidate Olivia Chow (who has herself been the target of racism and threats of violence on a large scale).

#IStandWithMunira trended city-wide last night, and you can donate to her campaign here to help replace the signs and pictures that have been destroyed. x

Some examples of the bigotry and racism happening right now in Toronto. Some responses.

Full recap once I get back to my laptop, but seriously, the police are ridiculous as fuck with this VonDerrit Myers story. Just admit it: your racist vigilante brother in arms gunned down this kid in the street.

#staywoke #16times

White people will believe a man was wearing a cloaked hoody, jumped out an invisible bush and fired 3 shots at a cop from a sandwich before they believe racism still exists

revolutionary-afrolatino:

for those who still somehow defend charter schools, here’s another brilliant reason why they’re not only no good but also oppressive. the same racist shit that happened then is happening now.

This white sasquatch needs to read a history book. Your people stole this land from Native Americans, this land is Native land and it will always be. You have the audacity to complain about the existence of black Americans in America when your people brought them here because whites were too fucking lazy to do their own labor. Then you have the audacity to call Black Americans lazy. 

You don’t own America, you never will.

Go back to fucking Europe.

This is from a Vice documentary called The KKK vs. the Crips vs. Memphis City Council . Huge trigger warning, lots of white ignorance and narcissism. 

For the people who claim racism no longer exists, this was documented in 2013. 

2013.
