When Immigrants Too Hold Anti-Black Sentiments

Caribbean News, Latin America News:

carib-id-2020-census

News Americas, FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Fri. July 3, 2020: The Black Lives Matter Movement is causing everyone, especially in corporations, organizations, and universities, to suddenly wake up and take stock of the “unconscious bias” within.

It’s now the new buzzword, which translates to: “learned stereotypes that are automatic, unintentional, deeply ingrained, universal, and able to influence behavior.”

The term is used to largely refer to White bias against Blacks and People Of Color. But there is also the not too often talked about unconscious xenophobia against immigrants and the far less discussed – unconscious immigrant bias towards Blacks, including Black immigrants from their own countries.

Yet, it is as real as Apple Pie. There are many immigrants from Asian and South Asian nations, from Europe, Australia, and the Middle East, who hold unconscious bias against Blacks.

Recently, the West Indies cricketer Darren Sammy told the story of how he was called ‘Kaalu’ while playing in India. I later learnt from my research that was also confirmed by Desi comedian Hasan Minhaj, that the term is as derogatory as calling a Black person the “N” word. Minaj also confirmed that the term lives on in Desi communities here in the US.

Arabs use the term Abid/Abeed to refer to Blacks while many Asians too have adopted the “N” word in referring to Black people. White Latinos, interestingly enough, are also biased against Black and Indigenous Latinos; and even indigenous Latinos too look down on Black Latinos.

In the Caribbean, we are special and not always in a good way! There is blatant racism in some countries where Black people and People of Color dominate. Take the Dominican Republic for instance, where ‘Antihaitianismo’ is very present.

The bias translates into even hatred against non-Haitians who look Black or are dark and have what is seen as “Bad Hair.” Many tell how they are told not to marry Black people or even see themselves as Black but ‘Dominican.’ This even though it’s obvious to anyone with eyes to see that they are – well Black! That translates to how they view themselves in America upon migration and how they interact with and view Blacks here.

In Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago, there is a different kind of racial issue, where the Black descendants of slaves and the Indo descendants of indentured servants share a tolerance. But there is always the ever present unconscious bias that spills over into the obvious at times of elections.

Immigrants from these countries migrate with these biases and pass them on to their children born in America. Some Indo-Caribbean immigrants, upon migration, expand that bias towards all Blacks in their new society, whether African Americans, Africans, or other fellow Black West Indians, and stay pretty much to their “own.”

So deeply entrenched is it, that children are often threatened with exclusion from their families should they marry a Black man or woman.  Others are warned before hand about not “mixing up with those people;” and ugly stereotypes are used to refer to Blacks even as they are often viewed with suspicion, condescension and less than.

By contrast, and much like immigrants from the Asian continent, there is great celebration if their child marries a White man or woman.

Yet, the irony of all ironies is that in America, these immigrants too are viewed by many Whites as “less than,” and face the same racial and social injustices meted out to Blacks.

In 2020, as we face heighted xenophobia and as a rise in White nationalists who seek to reverse changing demographics and the loss of absolute White hegemony, immigrants must also begin to stamp out the anti-Black biases within themselves, their families and their communities as well.

Caribbean News, Latin America News:

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Thurs. July 2, 2020: It is always fun playing the Jane Blonde Slot at your favourite online casino such as https://www.cinemacasino.com/. But, watching women in action at movies is also fun. Seeing a woman strap up and get ready for battle is quite intriguing, especially when they get to thrash their male counterparts in the end.

The 21st Century surely has some of the best female action movies in Hollywood. And, they will be doing it way better than the male action heroes too. Here is a list of some of the movies that can satisfy that woman empowerment enthusiasm.

Proud Mary

The movie takes its name from the Tina Turner “Proud Mary” song.  And, it has a phenomenal female actress playing the lead role as well, Taraji P. Henson. Therefore, you will get a double serving of the best women in the entertainment industry.

Henson plays the role of a female assassin who feels obligated to take care of the child of one of the men she killed years before.  But, saving him from the drug lord of the streets will need more than a kind heart.

Peppermint

Nothing beats the wrath of a mother who has lost her family. Especially if the killers end up walking away scot-free while she is charged with insanity. Jennifer Garner gets one of the best comebacks of her career in this 2018 movie. According to americancasinosites casino there’s a similar online slot based on the movie.

Garner plays a dedicated mother who has to take matters into her own hands to correct a corrupt, cruel and uncaring society. While the killers of her family will definitely die gruesome deaths, some are just punished for being cruel. Therefore, be kind to everyone, you never know!

Widows

2018 must have been the year for intensive women appreciation. We have all seen the power that Viola Davis has in the courtroom on How to get away with murder. But, she proves that she can actually do more as a thief!
