Black Lives Matter... in Scotland

Surprised no one has mentioned access to Capital as a major factor in aiding your chances of "success".

The Black population  by and large have no access to institutional capital to start new businesses etc. If you are born white and attend elite schools in developed societies you will have almost unlimited access to capital through the social networks inherent in those schools / colleges. 

And then of course there's the whole parenting & financial security thing.

 

What happened to Black Wall Street and then to their farm land from 1900 for almost a century was a total eye opener.

Mark Renton knew the score....

"One bottle of Valium, which i've already procured from my Mother, who is - in her own domestic and socially acceptable way - also a drug addict".

 

 

 

Does this mean Tommy deserved to die? #tommyslivemattered

I always did feel sorry for the cat

Both are wrong

Seems to me this reaction is the intention of the cartoon.

You could do the same trick with a cartoon of a fascist-nationalist and a civic nationalist, to get the reaction "they're both nationalists... both as bad as each other".

I suppose you could but wouldn’t be true, nor is it true for that cartoon.

On one level, you have two people - seemingly at odds with each other - both stating the same thing.  The inference here is that they are the same,

On another level - and how I read it - you have a juxtaposition, where two people are stating the same fact but the inference is that one person is supporting that position, the other is opposing it..  

Its a common device in cartoons, to have a more subtle subtext that subverts the more obvious meaning

Secoriya Williamson, the father of eight-year-old Secoriea Turner, told reporters that his daughter had been killed after at least two people in a crowd of armed people opened fire on a car she was riding in with her mother. Authorities said the mother had attempted to drive through illegally placed barricades in the area when the vehicle came under fire Saturday night.

Bottoms said there have been problems with protesters in the area putting up barriers to close off the street. She said she received a message that the barriers were back up less than an hour before she was informed that the eight-year-old girl had died.

"They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own," Williamson said. "They killed my baby because she crossed a barrier and made a U-turn? You killed a child. She didn't do nothing to nobody. Black Lives Matter? You killing your own. You killed an eight-year-old child. She ain't did nothing to no one of y'all. She just wanted to get home to see her cousin. That's all she wanted to do."
