Some U.S. tech companies expressed disappointment with a ruling by a federal judge that blocked new applications to a program that protects immigrants who were brought to the United States as children from deportation.
Racism, yet again, Racism should have no platform in the UK, but it does and here the blame is not only on the racists, but the Platform providers Facebook, Twitter, etc, who by their apparent refusal to take these abusive down as soon as they appear, are, effectively as guilty as the racists who post these comments.
Not only should the racists be prosecuted, but also the platform providers, for only then will this racism end.
There has to be ‘ZERO tolerism‘ with regards to racism.
It appears that Spain is not as democratic as they lead us to believe, for they are acting as a dictatorship, ‘obeys us or we will destroy you ‘.
I assume they are doing this to ensure the Spanish Basques do not do something similar.
While Spain is governed in this tyrannical manner there will be no freedoms in Spain.
On Tuesday, the conservative Spanish Court of Auditors claimed 5.4 million euros as financial guarantees from some 40 former Catalan government officials for allegedly promoting independence abroad from 2011 to 2017. These financial guarantees are additional to others previously requested by the same court.
In total, the auditing body claims from former president Artur Mas and former finance minister Andreu Mas-Colell 2.8 million euros, as well as 1.9 million euros from former president Carles Puigdemont and former vice president Oriol Junqueras. All this corresponds to allegedly irregular expenses in the framework of the promotion of the process of independence around the world.
The official most affected by this case is the former Secretary General of Diplocat, a semipublic consortium aimed at fostering Catalonia’s interests abroad, Albert Royo, who faces a claim of 3.6 million euros.
Former foreign affairs minister Raül Romeva faces 2.1 million euros and former government’s spokesperson Francesc…

Israel’s military said the explosions were a response to the launching of incendiary balloons that caused fires in fields in southern Israel.
Here we have the classic no trust on both sides, similar to what we had in Northern Ireland, which is still not fully sorted, but peace has been kept to a major degree.
Israel are still allowing israeli settlemen ts on what the Palestians believe to be their land, so there needs to be some show of faith from Israel, otherwise nothing will ever be sorted. One side has to show contrition to show they can be trusted.
If there was one on whom I would expect this to be so, would be the Jewish faith for over the years they have and are still being subjected to acts against them, but they need to take the lead and to not be so distracted by act against them. To bomb Gaza as they are doing is way above the acts from Hamas. Surely a toned down response could be put in place.
It is easy for me to say, for I am not involved in either side, but in some instances eyes of others can be an advantage. This is so because the acts so far are not easing the situation just maintaining it and could well be making it much worse.
Years ago many mistakes were made, but am I being too kind in saying they were mistakes for where there other ulterior motives. Like in the article, stating ‘to keep ethnic numbers low’.
But, no matter the reason or reasons it was completely wrong and should never have occurred. But, is this or something similar still happening now, I hope not, but who knows.
Health over the years and also education have a lot to answer for, fror everyone should be equal, in that they are treated the same.
While it may not be proved, but I feel there was a large degtree of racism in the outlined practice and racism of any degree should not be practiced and be illegal to do so.
While it will not make up for the damage and hurt caused the persons concerned should be entitled to substancial compensation.
England and really the whole of the UK needs to relook at many issues to ensure the pest possible can be done and what is being done is equal to all sections of the community. To focus on any assumed or seen differences is totally wrong, for being a ‘human being’ should be the only focus, not, age, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or anyothers. We all need to learn to live with each other and for those you will not then the full force of the Law should be brought down on them. There should also be regular reviews to ensure full equality is being precticed everywhere within the UK, with no exceptions.
In 1960s and 70s Britain, hundreds of black children were labelled as “educationally subnormal”, and wrongly sent to schools for pupils who were deemed to have low intelligence. For the first time, some former pupils have spoken about their experiences for a new BBC documentary.
In the 1970s, at the age of six, Noel Gordon was sent to what was known at the time as an “educationally subnormal” (ESN) boarding school, 15 miles (24km) from his home.
“That school was hell,” says Noel. “I spent 10 years there, and when I left at 16, I couldn’t even get a job because I couldn’t spell or fill out a job application.”
About a year before joining the ESN school, Noel went into hospital to have a tooth removed. He was given an anaesthetic, but it transpired that Noel had undiagnosed sickle cell anaemia, and the anaesthetic triggered a serious reaction.

No form of abuse is acceptable no matter what circumstances are involved.
With Social Media they do have the resources to eliminate the abuse though their platforms, but they appear unwilling to do so.
The legislation promised in the Queen’s Speech could well alleviate that to some or all extent. However, these platforms are owned my multi-billionaires and so their resources to fight or reduce the effects of any such legislation are enormous, but that should not stop the legislation coming into force and if it needs to be amended to make it more enforceable then so be it.
Black footballers could come off Social Media but why should they, why is it the innocent who have to act, rather than the perpetrators being punished, it is because it is easier for this to occur, but it is a major limitation of freedoms. Just because something is difficult should not be an excuse to not proceed, as by not proceeding this is as bad as the initial racial abuse and is in effect condoning but inaction or insufficient action. If the was put into every legislation, that inaction or insufficient action was illegal then more would be done by all concerned.
This was a very explosive interview, but one that had to take place for it showed, yet again, how ‘The UK Monarchy’ is out of place in the 21st century for it really needs to escape its assumed safety of the 19th century. For other European Monarchies have changed and survived and the ball is now and has been for sometime in the Court of The Monarchy.
Will The Monarchy survive, well I do hope so and it is still not too late for them to fully embrace Harry and Meghan.
Unfortunately, Harry and Meghan will be viewed badly by many in the UK, as many UK racists will feel their views are being supported, especially if they are Monarchists as well. Then the UK Monarchists will be against them.
But they will be supported by anti-monarchists and also many ‘people of Colour’.
This is a great opportunity for racism to be tackled by the establishment in the UK and show racists that they will not be tolerated.
I wish Harry and Meghan well and their starting family.
A very explosive interview and some points which come as no surprise to myself.
The Racist comment for one, as I have believed for sometime that there was a racist element within ‘The Family’. In this I query, where are the ‘persons of colour’ within the employment of The Family, for I am not aware of one, let alone others.
I am also not surprised about the comment that Prince Charles stopped communicating with Harry.
That is just The Family, for I feel it would have been even worse within the area of what I call ‘the grey suits’ for, I feel, this area is much worse than The Family in how they treat persons who are classed as outsiders.
By The Family, not fully accepting, as I have said before, is a great opportunity lost, but not unexpected.
This interview is indeed a massive bombshell and one from which The Family, may never recover.
I am also not surprised, even before the revelations that Meghan had had ‘suicidal thoughts’, which she took the The Families HR Department, one which is not good, especially with regards to the alleged abuse to members of some of Harry and Meghan’s staff, where it appears the HR Department took no action.
There are many reasons why Black Americans are unjustly treated in America and health is just one of many areas, another major area being Law and Order.
Nobody should be abused in any way, especially due to racial origins, but especially in America there is a long history of racial abuse and in many instances the historical instances are still occurring. In fact, many white Americans, would if they could turn back the clocks and this has only been made worse from 4 years of the Trump administration.
Even under the Biden administration changes, if any will be hard to achieve and then there is 2024, the very real possibility that Trump could return.
But it is not just in America that there is mistrust and racism, for this can and does occur in many countries, the UK being one, but, I hope, to not the extent of it is in America. But what do I know, for I am not of Black origin and may not even notice what is occurring in front of me, left alone behind me.
Nobody should have to contend with racist abuse, in fact, any form of abuse, for it is abhorrent and we should all be doing what we can to ensure abuse is not abound.
I do hope, that the mistrust can be minimised and eventually even, not occur, but this will require all of us to be vigilant.
COVID-19 is not concerned who it affects and my real wish is that the vaccine mistrust is overcome, but all the misinformation on Social Media will need to be countered, for if it is not, then there will be no chance that the COVID mutations will ever be reduced. COVID-19 will be with us for the long-term. The only effective counter is the vaccines, for the various restrictions can only go so far and that is assuming that we are all abiding by the restrictions, which we are not, but hopefully only a minority.
Colour is only skin-deep for underneath we are no different, so colour should be no reason to discriminate for we all have an equal right to life.
This says a lot about American Justice, which appears to have one law for persons who are White and another for persons who are Black.
Not only does it emerge with white and black individuals encountering each other, but in many instances how the Forces of law and Order behave.
Granted we only see through the media those that the Media wish us to see, but there does appear to be many elements in the various American Societies who wish for the clocks to be turned back to before Slavery was abolished or was meant to.
If this had been in reverse how would it have proceeded, well, I believe that the charge would not have been dropped. In fact, I was surprised that a charge was even brought, especially against the white women, for the expected would have been an incorrect charge brought against the Black bird-watcher, so this has to be seen as some progress, but far from enough.
To be Black in America is far from good for those who are Black, especially when many of the Police forces can not be trusted.
