@Regranned from @dp_mind.and.soul #Men ’s and #women ’s #collegebasketball players from a #Kansascollege were subjected to #racistschants during a game in #Arkansas last week, according to media reports and a coach at the game.The #LabetteCommunityCollege teams traveled from #Parsons, Kan., to #NorthArkansasCollege on Wednesday for the games. #Fans of North Arkansas hurled #monkey noises and crow caws at the players, the Parsons Sun reported. “In snippets of game footage viewed by the Sun, one member of the North Arkansas crowd made sounds of a crow cawing several times when black Labette players shot free throws,” the Sun reported.
The chant was a reference to #JimCrowlaws of the segregation era, the Sun reported.Mark Watkins, president of Labette, said the college encourages #diversity. “The opposing team will try to distract us, to cause us to lose our focus,” Watkins said in a statement to the Sun. “But, as long as we continue to focus on utilizing our #strength through diversity, we will overcome distractions, such as #discrimination.” Micki Somers, a spokeswoman for North Arkansas, said the school has found no evidence of the slurs after interviewing fans and coaches and reviewing its own game footage. The school also hasn’t received any complaints. “Unfortunately the whole town of Harrison has been judged by these accusations,” she said.But Jason Hinson, an assistant coach for the Labette men’s team, told The Star he heard racist chants clearly during the men’s game. “I can assure you this isn’t a hoax,” he said. “I heard the chants firsthand, both the ones directed towards me and the ones from across the gym.” North Arkansas plans to ask the Sun to view the video in order to “see where they (the chants) came from, so we can investigate it,” Somers said. “We definitely don’t condone any kind of conduct that includes any kind of insults or slurs, especially any that would target any kind of ethnicity,” she said. “If there were offenses perceived as racist, we want to make sure those don’t happen again in the future.” The person who shot video of the incident wished to remain anonymous and did not allow the Sun to publish the footage, #Yahoo #Sports #rascist
hallo ik heb een instagram aangemaakt (grapje heeft geerte gedaan want die heeft niks beters te doen) nou ik ben geboren op het griekse eiland samos met mijn zusje yassou (rip i will always love you) en toen zijn we naar een dierenasiel in eindhoven verhuisd. Ron Stefanie Geerte en Willem wilden mij heel graag hebben maar helaas was ik al geplaatst bij een gaycouple (🏳️🌈yes) in een flatgebouw in eindhoven. Yassou was wel nog beschikbaar maar ze was erg ziek en zwak en zat in een gastgezin. Omdat mijn familie toen Yassou wilde hebben EN mij vond het dierenasiel dat goed want 2 hondjes is beter dan 1 en zo ben ik terechtgekomen in zeeland groetjes pyrgos •

@Regranned from @dp_mind.and.soul - A #HawaiianAirlines employee has filed a #racialharassment and #discrimination suit against the carrier, saying that his life was #threatened by colleagues who placed a #noose and a #lynchingrope near his locker.
#TimothyDegrate, who is black, alleges the incident happened in August 2016. "What that means to me, #murder, #death, intimidation," Degrate tells Hawaii News Now. "It was just a hostile environment to work in." Degrate said it started with a few derogatory comments years ago, then co-workers started harassing him.He says he suffered psychological trauma as a result. "Whenever there's a lynch rope and a noose toward a black person, immediately we consider that a death threat there's no doubt about it," said Degrate's attorney, Elizabeth Fujiwara. When Degrate found the noose on the locker next to his, he says he immediately knew it was for him. "I'm the only black person there," Degrate says it was on the neighboring locker because his locker was broken and nothing could hang from it.
The #employee who uses that neighboring locker is now a witness for Degrate, saying in the complaint that he heard employees make racially insensitive comments to Degrate and believes the noose was meant for him.In a statement, Hawaiian Airlines denied the allegations of workplace violence, but said it has taken steps to bolster staff training. "We are sorry that Mr. Degrate felt disrespected in any way," said Ann Botticelli, senior vice president of corporate communications at Hawaiian Airlines, in an emailed statement. "An independent investigation of Mr. Degrate’s allegations was unable to verify actions by specific individuals as described by Mr. Degrate, and we vigorously deny all allegations of workplace violence. Having said that, because Hawaiian Airlines is committed to maintaining a fair and safe work environment we have taken additional efforts to improve workplace interaction at our Kona station, including mandatory staff-wide training on communicating and interacting with respect." Degrate has been with Hawaiian Airlines since 2000, and is a lead line service supervisor at the Kona International Airport #rascist #racism
