The father’s face says a million words
— Why Does He Do That by Lundy Bancroft
The White Apologist: "I’m so, so sorry for what my ancestors did to yours, man! It really breaks me down sometimes thinking about how despicable we were to you guys! Please forgive us!"
The Faux-Humanist: "Stop talking about race. We’re all just human."
The Martin-Lover: "Yeah, but didn’t Martin Luther King say to judge people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character! I have a dream today!"
The Lord of the Fee-Fees: "Don’t you understand how your comments about what SOME White people do are offensive to me and hurt my feelings? Not all of us are racist! By pointing out my "privilege", you are spreading hate!"
The Wonderful White Friend: "I’m not racist, some of my best friends are Arabs!"
The Nigger-Lover: "Why can’t I say nigger? I saw it on the Boondocks! Why can’t I say nigger? Eminem’s a rapper! Why can’t she say nigger? What if she married a Black man? Why can’t she say nigger? What if he was adopted by a Black family?"
The Pea-Brained Peacemaker: "Maybe if you people weren’t so harsh and hostile, White people would want to listen to you? Try being a little calmer next time, why don’t you?"
The Silly Bitch: "I don’t care what you say, nigger isn’t a racist word. NIGGER."
The Annoying White Feminist: ”I think our shared experiences as women are more important than race at this time, look at the bigger picture! Woman is the nigger of the world, and I have a right to say it, you colored women are just being divisive!”
The Reverse Race Specialist: "How come there are no historically white colleges? REVERSE RACISM!"
The Slave-Thrower: "Everybody was enslaved, not just you guys!"
The Fool: "I know you were fired from your modeling job because the casting agent said you didn’t ‘have the look’ and you were passed over for the job by ten other White models, but I don’t think this has anything to do with racism!"
The Colorblind Crook: "I don’t see color! There’s no difference at all between the races, we’re all the same deep down!"
The Bleeder: "Racism wouldn’t exist if you stopped talking about it. WE ALL BLEED RED!"

In the drought-stricken corner of northwestern Kenya, the native Turkana community is involved in deadly conflict with rivals from across the border in neighbouring Ethiopia, as the poor populations compete for dwindling food.
Fighting between the communities has a long history, but the conflict has become ever more fatal as automatic weapons from other regional conflicts seep into the area. According to locals, around a dozen Turkana have been killed in clashes since July. — Read More
