Why Does Social Media Deem It Acceptable to Allow Racial Abuse to Black Footballers? | Community | News


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.

Sobbing mother describes ‘barbaric’ treatment of autistic daughter in hospital | Express & Star


Autism is a condition not an illness, so why are the NHS still looking after people with autism as though there is a health cure.

People with autism have difficulty dealing with changes of routine, so taking them from a safe home environment is not a way to deal with anyone showing autistic tendencies. For it is not a health cure that is required, but a change of direction by the health authorities to understand autism more and thereby understand each person with autism. For each person with autism is an individual and needs an individual approach, unfortunately health does not work like that and just uses an approach which is the same for everyone.

Putting persons with autism in these health institutions is nowhere the correct approach, as they need to be within the community, one that is part of them. Autism is not a mental problem, but the way the health authorities and then the general community is. Care in the community should have been the best approach, but true to form community care was never sufficiently funded and is still not along with many other areas including Social Care, which is also seriously underfunded.

The National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 was supposed to have been the answer, but it would never be without the required sufficient funding.

Care and Treatments reviews were introduced in 2015, to alleviate some of the problems, but really it needs a complete overall and more importantly to be sufficiently funded.

Family Facing Deportation From Australia Because Of Son’s CP


I agree with you.

This is disgraceful that residency can be judged on the disability of a child and the related cost to Australia.

Yes, this is how it is in Australia today.

This is blatant disability discrimination, which I  would not have thought possible in such a progressive country as Australia. For this means it does not matter, what people have been doing in Australia, working there and producing wealth, not just for themselves, but also Australia, for when they have children and if they dared to have a child with disabilities, this could affect the decision whether they could stay in Australia. It shows that these parents have not been really valued by Australia, perhaps these parents should be able to claim from Australia a cost related to their time in Australia and the benefit Australia has had from them.

This is not what should be expected from, a so called, civilised country, as Australia, appears, to take what they want and then discard, when they feel there will be additional costs to Australia.

For this is totally disgraceful and Australia should be ashamed of themselves. This is a form of abuse, disability abuse.

I can’t describe how sad and angry I am after reading this. I have Cerebral Palsy and am a British Asian. I have grown up in the UK. I can’t imagine anything like this happening here. The fact that this child was actually born in Australia just makes the situation 1000 times worse in my eyes.

Australia’s disability discrimination commissioner has called on the immigration minister, Alex Hawke, to intervene “in a humane way” in a case in which a family is facing deportation because their six-year-old son has a disability.

On Tuesday night Ben Gauntlett was quizzed at Senate estimates about the plight of Australian-born Kayaan Katyal, and his parents, Varun and Priyanka, who are facing deportation after being rejected for permanent residency last month.

The ABC, which revealed the case on Sunday, reported that the family had been told in a rejection letter that Kayaan would cost…

Fury at ‘do not resuscitate’ notices given to Covid patients with learning disabilities | Coronavirus | The Guardian


Yet again persons with learning disabilities, (LD), are, apparently, going unnoticed by the UK Authorities. This is in spite of a report in November 2020 from Public Health England,  which showed that people with learning disabilities were three to six times more likely to die from covid-19 than the general population during the pandemic’s first wave

This is when, before COVID-19, the risk of persons with LD dying earlier than persons without LD is well known and the reason the LeDeR programme with the University of Bristol, is being researched, which started on 1 July 2016 and is funded by NHS England.

So, why with all the above are persons with LD being ignored and even worse, if they went into hospital could well have a DNR (Do not resuscitate), placed on their record.

It would appear all is against persons with LD, but why?

Do these authorities feel the right to life of persons with LD should be ignored, if this is correct, then this is a very dangerous and very worrying premise, for to believe, this is how exterminations start, just look at Germany in the 1930/40s.

This needs to be stopped forthwith for persons with LD have as much right to life as anyone.

Critics Tell GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert What To Do With Her ‘Prayers’ After Boulder Shooting | HuffPost UK


Yet another shooting and loss of life in America, when will it stop?

The gun lobby feel it will when everyone carries a gun, but was that not the case before ‘so called’ Law and Order was established in America. This was referred to the ‘Wild West‘, when virtually everyone carried a gun.

WShen it did not stop gun killings then and it will not know. Since then the range of firearms has increased considerably, as had the fire power of these weapons, for now instead of the six shot gun, the weapon of favour is the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, a weapon with so much more fire power as the old six shot guns, a weapon of ultimate destruction, which is put forward as a weapon of defence. With a weapon of that nature there is no defence, just killings.

The only sure way of bringing the killings down is for very tight gun control, a ban on personal use of semiautomatic rifles and a removal of ‘open carry’ for the general population, this is what we do in the UK and our gun killings are no where the numbers of in America.

The referred defence is the, The Second Amendment, one of the ten amendments to the Constitution comprising the Bill of Rights, states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”.

Which means ‘The right to keep and bear arms (often referred to as the right to bear arms) is a right for people to possess weapons (arms) for their own defense.’.

It was adopted on 15 December 1791, this is well before the development of semiautomatic rifles and should therefore only relate to the firearms of that time and not of the current time.

For today , in certain areas, is back to pre 1791, they have learnt nothing over the years, so the killings go and on.

Where is the Human right to Life in America, for it appears to not exist.

Many Black Americans aren’t rushing to get the COVID-19 vaccine – a long history of medical abuse suggests why


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.

Since the pandemic began more than a year ago, one of my greatest fears has been losing my brother, who lives in a care home. He is in his late 20s, is severely autistic and has epilepsy, as well as other complex needs. He is extremely vulnerable. According to Public Health England, people with severe learning disabilities are six times more likely to die from Covid-19 than the general population. In my brother’s age group, the 18-34 bracket, the death rate is 30 times higher.

Then there is the added risk of where he lives. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), living in a care home is a “major factor in the increased exposure of people with learning disabilities to Covid-19”. The communal nature of these facilities, combined with how much contact is required between care workers and residents – my brother needs help with everything, from…

Charge dropped against white woman who called police on Black bird-watcher


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.

Whatever you think of Harry and Meghan, their media critics are far worse | Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex | The Guardian


Meghan and Harry from a different perspective, a perspective which shows the Royal Family, the Hanger-ons and the Royal Media are not in control. That Meghan and Harry dare to wants to live their own life away from the control of a 94 year old grandmama.

Why should anyone have so much control over the lives of anyone.

The Royal family have a lot to learn, but they do not wish to and certainly the persons who surround the Royal family do not. These are, so called, experts on how Royalty are supposed to behave.

For it appears males within the family can, effectively do as they please provided it does not become public knowledge, but even then they are allowed to get away with it and some arrogantly believe they have a right to do so, are you not Andrew and Philip.

But, if you are female, except if you are directly connected to the family, such as Anne and previously Margaret, they have to do no wrong, this was previously Diana, Fergie and now Meghan.

This family have great privileges and for some money appears to be no object, yes, the press is always on their tail, but are their duties really that exhausting, in fact,Andrew appears to be drawing money for doing more than nothing, but then would anyone want to be associated with him, except his Mum, but is that also doubtful.

Harry and Meghan have every right to live their own lives and they have promised to refund all or most of what was spent on them or on gifted properties.

With Meghan, the Royal family have let a great opportunity to learn slip through their fingers, for they have a lot to learn about diversity and Meghan would have been and still is, if the family would get off their ‘high horse’ and ask for help.

As the article states many families have relatives who are there for themselves and the Markles and Windsors are no exception. Meghans half-sister is a nightmare, and her father needs to learn that life does not revolve around him, for his daughter, Meghan has a right to live her own life, either with or without him.

She has chosen to live with Harry and I feel it will be good for both of them, for Harry, since the death of his mother, Diana, has not been good, certainly his mental state. For who would wish to be forced to walk behind his mother coffin, certainly at his young age and all the instances before and after her death, was he really allowed to mourn how he wished to, who knows, well Harry for one.

Meghan before Harry had her independence and to live with someone does mean that some of the independence can not continue in the same way, she will have made mistakes, but do we not all and we are not hounded by the press, the so called, Royal experts and members of the Royal family. Philip certainly does, but he is not continually hounded, except in the first instances to some degree.

So, allow Harry and Meghan to live their own lives, how they wish, mistakes will be made, but it is for them to deal with them how they feel fit. If they want publicity or not, then that is their choice, for I would certainly use what I have to my own advantage, while endeavouring to protect my children.

We all feel the Queen is for all of us, but is she,, for she does not know that the majority of us exist and would not acknowledge us, unless we were in her way. How she shouted out to people who were in her line of view at a racecourse a few years ago says a lot.

I wish Harry and Meghan all the best and do realise they would not give me a second glance, that is assuming there was a first.
