産経社説


東日本大震災 国会は「増税なき復興」を まず公務員人件費削減せよ
2011.9.30



国民に厳しい負担を強いる一方、政府・与党の歳出削減努力は極めて不十分だ。凍結したはずの新たな国家公務員宿舎の建設再開や国会議員の定数削減の放置など枚挙にいとまがない。

 ≪議員の定数減は放置≫


みんなの党の江田憲司幹事長が民主党のマニフェスト(政権公約)を引用して「国家公務員の人件費2割カットで1兆円の財源を捻出するとの約束は実現するのか」と野田首相にただした。首相が「平成25年までに取り組む。旗は降ろしていない」と答えると、江田氏は「だったら、1兆円×10年で、10兆円の財源が増税せずとも捻出できるではないか」とたたみかけた


公務員人件費の削減を地方にも広げれば、さらに大きな歳出削減効果が見込める。肥大化する地方交付税の圧縮にもつながる。首相が強調する財政規律の維持や財政再建にも貢献するだろう。

 増税を前提にしてしまうと、国会議員や国家公務員の人件費削減など、自ら身を削ろうとする推進力は失われる。



 個人的には必要なら増税すればいい、と思うが、産経の社説はもっともである。

 議員定数削減、国家公務員の定数・人件費削減、有害無益の天下り法人の廃止をやらずして、増税などもってのほかである。

 多くの新聞社は、増税に肯定的であるが、しかし、新聞社でぬくぬくしているせいか、新聞社のお偉方も庶民感覚を見逃してはいまいか?

 国民は必要な増税には反対はしまい。しかし、国会議員・公務員が自ら身を削らずに国民に負担ばかり要求しては庶民は納得しまい。

 増税の前提として、国会議員・公務員の人件費・定数削減・天下り法人の廃止は絶対の必要条件だ。

 そういった庶民感覚を無視するから単純に増税を唱える政党は庶民からしっぺ返しを受けるのであろう。

 そして、くだらない失言ばかりに大騒ぎしないで、各新聞社も、声を大にして叫んで欲しい。

 そして、これは、どんな危険源についても言える。原発も然りである。物理的に二重三重の安全策、それをめぐる人的体制、そして、万が一事故が起きたときのための避難体制の確立。

 人間というのは、火の危険を知って、鼻先に火をぶら下げて平気で煙をふかしているいる動物である。そして、危険の性質を知って文明は発展してきた。


 私が反原発派の一部に不合理さを感じるのはこの点である。漠然と危険を煽って、政治活動するなら、漠然と特定の国籍保持者の危険を煽る街宣右翼となんらかわりはない。

Newsround, racism and me
In 1978, 10-year-old Samira Ahmed had her angry letter about 'playground racism' read out on the kids' news programme. But she was shocked by how the show responded. Decades later, she has discovered that Lucy Mathen, the British Asian co-presenter, was haunted by the story

guardian.co.uk, Thursday 29 September 2011





Back in the summer of 1978, the National Front was a significant political presence. At a family party, I and other British Asian children aged between six and 10 went off to the local playground on our own. Older white children arrived and started calling us racist names, then pushing us around. It became more menacing. As the oldest I had an instinct that it might escalate and serious physical violence was possible. I told the others we needed to leave calmly. We started walking but as the troublemakers attempted to trip us, we ended up running, with them in pursuit, hurling abuse. It wasn't any more than that, but it was the only time in my life I've ever run away. I was furious.

・・・・・
"I think I had said that people who are different in any way tend to get picked on, and it didn't have to be because of race. When I got home I felt that I might have made light of the obvious distress that came over in your letter. Also I had been a victim of prejudice many times. But there was I, a successful TV reporter, the first female British Asian on a high-profile programme and perhaps I didn't want to draw attention to myself as anything else."


 子供のころ公園で遊んでいたら、”白人”の子供に追い出された経験をテレビ局に送ったら、それは読み上げられたが、いじめ一般の問題にされ、差別という問題は等閑視、気持をくみ取ってもらえなかった、そのニュースを担当した1人も同じアジア人女性であったが、その当時初のアジア人女性レポーターということもあり、人種に焦点をあわせたくなかったのでお茶をにごしてしまった、と。

 その子供は、現在ジャーナリストになり、その時の経験が今に生きているし、当時の女性レポーターはジャーナリストを辞め、社会改革を実践する仕事に従事している、と。

ーーーいじめに、その回答部分は、これからの日本でも十分ありえる話であろう。

Axing of migrant return scheme 'will cost taxpayers £2m a year'
Service that helps vulnerable people return to country of origin has saved £20m in benefits over past 10 years

guardian.co.uk, Saturday 24 September 2011



A scheme allowing vulnerable people to return to their country of origin is to be abolished by the government at a cost of millions to the taxpayer.

The travel assistance scheme was introduced almost 40 years ago to help immigrants who have acquired British citizenship return home if they have problems integrating or finding work. The scheme has recently helped individuals to return to Iraq and Afghanistan, and campaigners calculate that it has saved £20m over the past decade in state benefits, housing and health provision. The decision to shut the scheme means that some individuals seeking to leave the UK will no longer be able to do so.


 イギリス国籍をとっても、イギリスになじめなかったり、仕事が見つからない場合、元いた国に帰るのを財政支援する制度が、今度廃止されるが、しかし、イギリスにいる場合に、住居の支援や、健康保険などの税金による負担を考えると、むしろ継続したほうがいいのではないか、と。

 こういう制度があるんですね。日本であったら、CNNあたりが、人種差別的政策とかなんとかの見出しをだすかもしれませんね。

Wayne Simmonds is no stranger to controversy right now.

Last week, an ignorant fan in Ontario threw a banana on the ice as Simmonds was taking a shot in an overtime shootout. Now, he is being accused of yelling a homophobic slur at Sean Avery.

The NHL took no immediate action to seek out or find the racist fan, but it thoroughly investigated the most recent incident.

Which begs two questions: Why fine one and not the other? And is it possible that one slur is worse than another one?

First Nations Park-Goers Claim Toronto Police Racism


Some First Nations people in downtown Toronto say they’re being unfairly targeted by police and, in one case, have made an official complaint.

Terra Gardner said she and three friends were in George Hislop Park near Yonge and Charles streets when two police officers confronted them.

A couple of police officers rolled up on their bikes and told us if they ever see a Native person in this park again, they’re going to arrest us,” she told CBC News.

Gardner and her friends are homeless. She says they weren’t drinking that day or breaking any laws.

“It just feels like racism and it’s offensive,” she said.

Gardner now says she feels nervous about going back to the park

Statistics of a Fatherless America




Cool Dad of the Week: Among fathers who maintain contact with their children after a divorce, the pattern of the relationship between father-and-child changes. They begin to behave more like relatives than like parents. Instead of helping with homework, nonresident dads are more likely to take the kids shopping, to the movies, or out to dinner. Instead of providing steady advice and guidance, divorced fathers become "treat dads."

Dadless years: About 40 percent of the kids living in fatherless homes haven't seen their dads in a year or more. Of the rest, only one in five sleeps even one night a month at the father's home. And only one in six sees their father once or more per week.

"The former spouse (mother) was the greatest obstacle to having more frequent contact with the children." (Source: Increasing our understanding of fathers who have infrequent contact with their children, James Dudley, Family Relations, Vol. 4, p. 281, July 1991.)
"A clear majority (70%) of fathers felt that they had too little time with their children." (Source: Visitation and the Noncustodial Father, Mary Ann Kock & Carol Lowery, Journal of Divorce, Vol. 8, No. 2, p. 54, Winter 1984.)

"Feelings of anger towards their former spouses hindered effective involvement on the part of fathers; angry mothers would sometimes sabotage father's efforts to visit their children." (Source: Ahrons and Miller, Am. Journal of Orthopsychiatry, Vol. 63. p. 442, July `93.)
"Mothers may prevent visits to retaliate against fathers for problems in their marital or post-marital relationship." (Source: Seltzer, Shaeffer & Charing, Journal of Marriage & the Family, Vol. 51, p. 1015, November 1989.)
In a study: "Visitational Interference - A National Study" by Ms. J Annette Vanini, M.S.W. and Edward Nichols, M.S.W., it was found that 77% of non-custodial fathers are NOT able to "visit" their children, as ordered by the court, as a result of "visitation interference" perpetuated by the custodial parent. In other words, non-compliance with court ordered visitation is three times the problem of non-compliance with court ordered child support and impacts the children of divorce even more.

ミャンマー人は何故農業をしたくないのか



じゃあどうすればいいのか?。財団を解散して難民に直接金を支給する、というのはどうでしょう?。

【以下の文章については、コメント欄で「現金支給はよろしくない」との指摘があります。】

ミャンマーの難民は家族で来ています。1家族平均4-5人のようですが、とりあえず約30人は4人程度×8家族とします。で、1家族に年500万円支給します。イマドキ年収500万円なんて立派な金額ですが、多めなのには理由があります。で、年500万円支給を10年継続します。そのかわり、500万円で生活費だけでなく、自分たちが民間の日本語学校に行く金も出しなさい。1-2年で日本語学習が終わったら、その後は自分で考えてやりたい仕事の職業訓練なり専門学校の学費も500万円から出しなさい。と命じます。で、10年で支給が切れるので、それまでに自力で就職して自立しろと。国は、アパート契約の保証人とか必要最低限のサポートに留めます。細かい生活マナーなんぞは先輩在留ミャンマー人に聞けば済みます。近くの同郷人や同胞団体を紹介してあげればいい。

これで必要な額は30人受け入れに対して、500万円×8家族×10年で4億円。現行の8億3000万円より4億3000万円も節約できます。支給期間を8年にすれば、3億2000万円で、現行比5億1000万円も削減できます。同予算で受け入れ家族を2.5倍に増やせます。

悪いのは農業をしないミャンマー人か、天下り法人の受け入れ態勢か?。現行の、「実は何も面倒見ない財団が4億かすめとって難民を農家に売り渡す方式」と「金を渡し、各人が考えて民間の日本語学校、希望する民間の専門学校等に通って自立を目指す方式」のどちらが良い成果を上げると思いますか。




現金支給がまずいなら、日本語学校、職業訓練などのサービス料の肩代わりがいい。
それと、先輩在留人を積極的に講師やサポーターとして雇うべきだ。

言語の問題は大きい。反対の立場で、日本人のおっさんやおばはんが、ミャンマーに行って現地の言葉を習い始めて、そこで、生活することを想像してみると、かなり苦労するであろうことは想像にかたくない。

いずれにせよ、天下り法人は有害無益だ。

Saleem teaches small classes of school leavers who have realized they cannot get a job with their level of writing and math skills. These students are managing to stay the course, despite a 30 per cent drop-out rate, and a poor school record.

Newham is one of the most deprived boroughs in the UK, where more than two-thirds of children live in low-income families. But it is now also home to the Olympic stadium, and the recently opened Westfield Stratford City, Europe’s largest shopping centre. Westfield aimed to hire 5,000 local people, almost half of them from the ranks of the long-term unemployed. Candidates, managers say, were enthusiastic, but it was soon discovered more than 300 of them could not read or write enough to fill out a basic form.
Westfield is giving remedial classes to its new recruits, in the hopes their enthusiasm will carry them through. But a ComRes market research agency survey shows companies all over the city feel the education system right up to university is letting them down.
“Fifty-eight per cent of London business leaders felt that too often graduates in London lacked basic literacy and numeracy skills,” reveals Scott Payton, Editor-at-large at Londonlovesbusiness.com. “We are talking about people who have spent three or four years in higher education. It is a really damning indictment of the education system at large, and it leaves one wondering what those who haven’t been to university are like.”

As RT’s Ivor Bennett reports, most people at the job centers are migrant workers.
“The problem is a lot of British people at the moment are a bit lazy and they’ve got used to not doing the minimum paid jobs and the low paid work so they need to be forced into taking these jobs,” says Jamie Bragginton.
The government claims it is now doing just that: “We are reforming the welfare system to ensure that we end the benefit dependency which has trapped so many people, and finally ensure work pays.”


さらに、職安には移民が多く、イギリス人は少ない。最低賃金では働きたくない人もおおいからである、と。

Viewpoint: What are BNP supporters really like?



イギリスの反移民極右政党支持者の場合。

・・・・・
Her concern wasn't simply about the economy. It stemmed from her feeling that British culture, values and the national community were under threat.

・・・・・
I spent the next four years travelling up and down the country to interview some of the most committed followers of the far right. Conventional wisdom tells us there is something "wrong" with people like Sharon. Implicit in the stereotypes is that they are driven by crude racism, irrational impulses, and psychological problems.

The inadequacy of these stereotypes became quickly apparent during the interviews. On the whole, most of the activists appeared as relatively normal people.

・・・・・
Rather than isolated, they seemed well connected to their local communities. Rather than irrational, they had a clearly defined and coherent set of goals. Rather than psychologically damaged, they seemed balanced, reasonable and articulate.

Clearly, there were some exceptions, but the point is that these were very much the exception rather than the norm. Like Sharon, most of these supporters were neither Nazis nor fascists. More than anything, they were a group of citizens who were profoundly concerned about the effects of immigration and rising diversity on their communities and the country.

・・・・・
Implicit in their reaction is a sentiment firmly entrenched in the collective British mindset - that no matter how bad things get, Britain is immune to the appeals of extremists. It is difficult to quantify, but centres on the notion there is just something fundamentally "unBritish" about supporting extremists

・・・・・
But is Britain really immune to a successful far right party? I think it would be mistaken to assume that this tradition has deprived extremists of fertile soil.

When we look at the evidence there is a large reservoir of potential support for a far right party. Large numbers of us have become concerned about the issue of immigration - at one point, it was more important to us than education, crime and the NHS.

・・・・・
In fact, one out of every five of us thought it was the most important issue facing the country. And the concern was not simply about competition over jobs or council housing. Surveys told us that two-thirds of the population thought Britain was "losing its culture" because of immigration.

Also, those who are concerned about immigration are not concerned simply about traditional immigration. Significant numbers of us are also anxious over the presence and perceived compatibility of settled Muslim communities.

At the time that two BNP members were elected to the European Parliament in 2009, over two-fifths of the population expressed agreement with the suggestion that even in its milder forms Islam poses a danger to Western civilisation.

・・・・・
My view is that if they were free of baggage and political amateurism they would be met with significant support.


極右政党のメンバーは、お馬鹿で理不尽な人達が多いと思われているが、しかし、それは例外であって、わりに普通の人が多い、と。

実際、移民問題がイギリスが直面する大問題であると思っている人は、極右政党を支持していない人の中にもかなり多い。極端に走るのは英国的ではない、と思われているがしかし、こうした潜在的傾向に鑑みるとそうともいいきれない、と。

あれだけの植民地主義をやっていたのですから、極端に走ることがない、とは言えないと思いますけど、一般人の中にもひそむ異なる人々への不安というのを多文化主義という地に根をはっていない理念だけでメディアが無視すると大変なことになる、というのはイギリスでも日本でも同じでしょう。

Eastern Europe's Scapegoats
Governments Turn Blind Eye to Violence Against Roma

By Keno Verseck


It is a tragedy taking place in the heart of Europe. In many countries, Roma are being bullied by right-wing extremists, and racism against them is considered acceptable in mainstream society. There is no sign of a strategy to solve the problem.

In several eastern European countries, a modern form of civil war is being waged. The governments of the Czech Republic and Bulgaria have been down-playing it for years, and the western public knows little about it: It is a war against the Roma. There are marches against them. Self-proclaimed vigilantes bully and threaten them. Walls are built around the sections of town where they live. Their houses are set on fire. They are forced out of their homes and sometimes brutally murdered.


チェコ、ブルガリなどで、ロマ・ジブシーの居住地の周囲には塀が建てられ、放火され、ジプシーはいじめられ、あるいは、殺害され、ジプシーに対する戦争状態になっているのに、政府はみて見ぬふり。迫害されたジプシー達は西洋に流れ込んでいる、と。なんとかしなくてはいけない、と。

Two Roma people, a father and son, were assaulted in the centre of the Bulgarian town of Blagoevgrad in one of the latest incidents following the deaths and unrest in Katounitsa.

Kostadin Todorov said that he and his son had been attacked while putting up posters. A group of skinheads had assaulted them, knocking his child to the ground. No one had come to assist them, he told Bulgarian National Television.

Q 尖閣諸島を中国が虎視眈々と狙っていますが、どうすればいい?
A スキを見せず、国際社会の力を借りる必要



65年前、日本は敗戦の影響もあって、憲法に「諸国民の公正と信義に信頼して」(前文)、「戦力を保持しない」(9条)と宣言しました。しかし、信頼できる「諸国民の公正と信義」は当時も現在もなく、頼るべき国際警察の代わりに、同盟国アメリカに頼り続けてきています。

 スキを見せないという意味で、国際警察に代わるアメリカ、ときに警察行動が行き過ぎることはあっても、後ろ盾になってくれる保安官として大事にしておくことも戦略の一つです。


Q 中国国民に公正と信義はないのでしょうか?
米売ーーーないでしょうな。


Q 守ってやる代わりに、所場代よこしな、あれしな、これしな、といわれたらどうすればいいのでしょうか?
米売ーーー言うことを聞くにこしたことはありません。しっかり守ってもらえるように、われわれもアメリカから反感をかわないように常日頃ペンを執っているのです。みなさんも協力してください。

Q 守ってくれなかったらどうすればいいでしょうか?
米売ーーー祈るしかありません。神話は信じるためにあるものです。


オランダ・ハーグの国際司法裁判所をはじめ国際機関での裁判は、日本が訴訟を提起しても相手が応訴しない限り裁判は始まらないという国際法上の限界があります。・・・・・
最も大切なことは、尖閣諸島に限らず、竹島、北方領土問題の真相を国会、そして国民レベルで勉強し議論する機会をもっと持つことだと思います

Q 竹島や北方領土は米軍がまもってくれるのですか?
米売ーーーそれはないです。でも騒いでいれば日本国内の右翼を満足させることはできます。

Q 向こうが拒否しても国際裁判所に提訴を正式にまた呼びかけたらどうですか?
米売ーーーいまやったら、韓国が大騒ぎするから駄目です。

Q 北方四島をロシアは返してくれるでしょうか?
米売ーーーロシアがまた崩壊寸前になれば別ですが、それ以外では、当分は無理でしょうな。

Q 歴史的事実をロシアに認めさせた上で、二島返還、台頭する中国に対してロシアカードってのはどうでしょうか?
米売ーーー二島返還では右翼は納得しないし、ロシアと接近したら、アメリカが黙っていないかも知れない、その怒りを恐れる右翼もまた、だまっていないでしょう。

Are Australians actually racist?
Mark Bode | 29th September 2011


Mark Bode




I WAS sitting at a makeshift street bar in Bangkok recently when an American delivered an unflattering verdict on Australian society.

We are, according the American, rotten to the core with racism.

I wasn't overly surprised by the comment, which was immediately followed by him admitting that his own country isn't exactly a bastion of egalitarianism, because I had heard it before while living overseas.

An example being the Belgium woman who, upon learning I was Australian and informing me that she had spent time in Western Australia, berated me over our treatment of Aborigines.

As with the American and the other foreigners who have questioned our nation's soul, I didn't provide a counter-argument because I kind of agreed with them.

But there was no way I was going to let a Pom call Australians racist, which is what happened in Bangkok only days after the American censured us.

My English friend Greg, an Iranian-Brit called Maz and I were discussing racism at Maz's Bangkok home.

Greg ended up reviewing Australia's racial tolerance unfavourably.

I said such remarks were a bit rich coming from a Pom, and left it at that.

But his comments got me thinking.

Having been resettled in Australia for four years now, I've started to re-evaluate my opinion of us as a land of rednecks.

I'm wondering: are we really that bad?

Such a consideration is timely given that high-profile News Limited columnist Andrew Bolt yesterday lost his race discrimination case in the Federal Court of Australia, with him found to have breached the Racial Discrimination Act.

Nine fair-skinned Aborigines brought an action against Bolt after he implied in a column that they chose to identify themselves as Aboriginal so as to gain advantages in life, including in their careers and socially.

Bolt essentially regurgitated the old stereotype that many Australians use their "teaspoon of Abo blood" to their advantage.

Judging by his large, enthusiastic following, there are a lot of Australians who agree with him. No great surprise there.

But, again, are we rotten to the core with racism like it would appear many foreigners believe us to be?

I don't think we are.

Previously in this column I've been highly critical of the level of racism in this country.

But like I told my English mate, we've taken steps to address the problem. Yesterday's Federal Court ruling is a perfect example of that.

Migrants mopping up UK jobs?
permalink email story to a friend print version
Published: 27 September, 2011


As spending cuts in the UK force a growing number of people out of work, the few vacancies that are left are mostly going to immigrants.
Jamie Bragginton is among the growing ranks of the unemployed. He has been trying to find a job in social housing since May – but competition is fierce.
"There are around five or six agencies working for each job so you just find there are about 30-40 people getting shortlisted. I’ve had to look at salaries that are slightly less, maybe going back to college, maybe doing something part-time," he says.
Unemployment is now at 8 per cent – the highest for 15 years. But no matter how hard Jamie tries, the odds are stacked against him.
Job centers across the UK have helped fill over 180,000 new vacancies in the last 12 months. But only 8 per cent of those went to British nationals. Foreign workers were more successful in the job market nine times out of 10.
Reversing that trend was a key election pledge of the new government, promising to slash immigration.
However a year on, it has only increased. Net immigration was nearly a quarter of a million last year – up 20 per cent on 2009 and Britain’s second biggest ever annual total. It is way off the government’s five-figure target.

UK marching banned – Govt calls the tune
permalink email story to a friend print version
Published: 26 September, 2011,





The UK government has granted police the right to prevent far-right groups from marching through five London boroughs for 30 days, prompting concerns that a dangerous precedent has been set in terms of police power and freedom of expression.
Scotland Yard says it applied for the ban over fears of violence and disorder planned by the English Defence League earlier this month.
The view of workers’ rights activists on the Home Office ban on marching is quite clear. “It is an attack on the basic democratic rights of working people in this country,” says Patrick O’Regan from the Workers’ Revolutionary Party.

【特集】電気料金安くできるのか



現在、電力事業は、大手電力10社体制で事実上の地域独占となっている。それが、2000年から始まった規制緩和で新規事業者が参入可能となった。46社が参入し、安く電力を供給している。東京電力など電力会社の電気料金は、“統括原価方式”と呼ばれる計算方法で決められている。人件費や燃料費、広告費などをコストとして積み上げ、そこに決められた金額の利益を上乗せ。この総額によって電気料金が決まる。公益事業のため、法律によって一定の利益を確保する仕組みとなっている。一方、新規参入業者は、この統括原価方式を使わず、一般企業のように人件費や広告費などを削減し、安い料金を実現させている。しかし、国の規制があるため、契約対象は、企業や工場など大口利用者のみで、一般家庭とは契約できない。電気料金の値上げが取りざたされるなか、私たちに第2の選択肢はないのか。政府も検討を始めた。


これ、ちょこっとみた。賛成なのだが、報ステが、新規参入、規制撤廃をいっているのはちと驚いた。

電力会社だけではあるまい。

官僚・企業の既得権益維持・拡大のための無駄・非効率的な事業、独占事業をメディアはどんどん摘発していくべきだ。

市場・競争原理になじまないものが一部あることは認めた上で、原則として、競争原理を導入し、競争を歪める政官業の癒着および規制をもっと摘発してくべきだ。

日本で徹底したネオリベはなじまない。そこで、官から民へ、その他で浮いたお金を弱者や子供の保育、若者の教育に費やすべきだ。

The hit-and-run killing of a teenager blamed on the criminal underworld has sparked violent protests across Bulgaria against the Roma community and the government for its failure to deal with organised crime.

Police have arrested 200 people during protests since Friday when Angel Petrov, 19, was killed near the city of Plovdiv in central Bulgaria.

Properties have been set on fire and cafes ransacked by rioters, while police have acted to prevent attacks on Roma districts and mosques in a number of cities.

Hate Crime Alleged In Attack On Latino Man


A 42-year-old Kent man was charged Monday with second-degree assault and malicious harassment for allegedly beating a Latino man last week in what prosecutors allege was a racially motivated attack.

Kurt Randall Madsen was arrested early Thursday and is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail, according to jail records. He is to be arraigned Oct. 10.

Madsen and the Latino man were drinking together behind the Applebee’s restaurant at 25442 104th Ave. S.E. and argued after Madsen began making racial slurs, according to charging documents.

A co-worker of the Latino man ― both worked in the restaurant ― separated the men.

Madsen, who was intoxicated, was denied service in the restaurant and went out to the parking lot, where he confronted the Latino man and accused him of being “an illegal immigrant.”

Madsen is accused of punching the man repeatedly in the face until he fell to the ground, then straddling the man and slamming his head into some rocks, the papers say.

French police round up Roma ahead of vote
(AFP) – 23 hours ago



MARSEILLE, France ― French police on Tuesday rounded up more than 160 members of the Roma minority from a camp in Marseille, sparking the ire of rights groups some six months ahead of presidential elections.
President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to make security a central theme of his re-election campaign next year, and last year provoked international outrage by targeting foreign-born Roma for expulsion.
Around 150 police took part in the latest round-up of a group that included children and babies, clearing an illegal encampment that local authorities regarded as unsightly and unhygenic.
The purpose of the round-up was not to expel the Roma, but some of 161 detained could be sent back to Romania or Bulgaria if they cannot show how they can support themselves, while others will be offered alternative housing.
There was no violence, but the local head of the Human Rights League, Bernard Eynaud, criticised the raid as "aggressive".
"There are two Roma camps left in Marseille. This one, which is old, houses children at school. Once more, they will be split up and the children will not be able to go to school today," Eynaud said.
He accused the town hall of reneging on an August offer for a negotiated solution, declaring: "Today the only answer they have is the police."
The families were living in caravans and corrugated iron and wooden huts next to a railway line.
"An emergency housing solution has been offered to all those living in the camp," a police official said, asking not to be named.

Uncontrolled immigration is destroying Britain's literacy
By ABHIJIT PANDYA
Last updated at 12:34 AM on 27th September 2011



Migration figures support the fact that there are significant numbers of new arrivals from countries that have very poor numerical and verbal literacy rates. Many of the states of origin of new migrants have no system of cohesive curricula and very few schools that actually function effectively.
Thus there are a bulk of children in the UK today that can get very little early direction towards, both numerical and verbal, literacy from their parents. The burden of educating these folk now falls squarely and unfairly on British tax-payers, at the expense of their own children that continue to be squeezed out from schools, particularly those surrounding inner city migrant ghettos.

Countering Slurs: Hollywood’s Anti-Arab Propaganda

28. SEP, 2011





Fordson High School is a secondary school in Dearborn, Michigan. At times Dearborn has been a victim of hostility toward its Muslim community. The city has the largest concentration of Arabs outside of the Middle East.

The school and its football (American football) team is the setting for the new film “Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football”.

In recent years, Fordson’s team faced a range of challenges, from racial slurs hurled at them while playing to being falsely accused of being terrorists.

The film, about Faith (Islam), Fasting (Muslims during Ramadan) and Football (the film’s setting), premiered on September 9th, two days before the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

The team had to train during Ramadan, and in order to fast for the month, they set their practice times from 11 pm to 4 am.

Paul Brunick, reviewing the film for the New York Times, notes that “…sound bites of unidentified but recognizable talk radio and cable news mainstays are the kind of provocations regularly criticized by media watchdogs.”

A narrator in the film says, “We’ve been called many names: an Islamic School, an Arabic School, a Hezbollah High School, camel jockeys, damn Arabs, towel heads, sand niggers.”

One of the students comments, “It’s real hate; you can feel it
.” But they’re young, they’re football players and they want to win, not just on the football field but as Arab Americans.

Says the narrator, “But when all of this hatemongering is mashed together with a sweeping orchestral march, the individual instances of bigotry are transformed into something larger: a glimpse of how monstrous our post-9/11 hysteria may appear to future students of American history.”

In the film, residents of Dearborn react to the events of 9/11. One man says, “Please God, don’t let them be Arabs” about those who flew the planes into the twin towers.

Another reflects, “We were hit twice; once by Osama bin Laden and second by those who associated us with Osama bin Laden.”

Very few films or TV programmes portray Arabs in a favourable light. Those that do need to counter the negative images reflected in the bigotry of a century in Hollywood.

Films like Oscar nominated “Syriana” and “Kingdom of Heaven,” which display Arabs and Muslims as people rather than stereotypes, can help break down the image that has been built up for years.

As Professor Emeritus Jack Shaheen made clear in his landmark study Reel Bad Arabs and his documentary based on the book, Hollywood has a long and reprehensible record of vilifying Arabs.

September 27, 2011 |



Saul Razcon was driving on Tuscon’s I-10 when he was stopped by the Arizona Highway patrol in August 2010, ostensibly for a broken window. He was asked for his driver’s license. However, the officer proceeded to ask for the license of the passenger driving with him in his car. Then, he asked the three young girls who were present with them in the backseat – aged 11, 13 and 17 – if they had “papers.”

Jamie Juarez’s stepdaughter’s friend was scared and simply did what a good girl should do: she told a highway patrol officer the truth when she was asked questions. As a result, she was deported back to Mexico along with her friend.

Study: What You Wear Can Influence How People Perceive Your Race

What you wear can influence how others view you ― specifically what they perceive your race to be, a new study finds.

The findings show how stereotypes and prejudices play a powerful role in how we mentally categorize people, says Jon Freeman, lead author of the study and a doctoral candidate in psychology at Tufts University.

The researchers, a group of psychologists and sociologists from Tufts, Stanford University and University of California, Irvine, asked study participants to determine the race of computerized faces wearing high-status attire (a business suit) or low-status attire (a janitor’s jumpsuit).

Faces viewed in high-status attire were more likely to be seen as white and faces viewed in low-status attire were likely to be seen as black.

UK Racist Killer Apologizes To Victim’s Mother Over Facebook Abuse

Mother of murdered teenager Anthony Walker has received an apology from one of his killers after racist abuse was posted on a social media site.

Gee Walker said Paul Taylor had contacted her to say that he did not write the abuse which appeared on his Facebook profile in August.

She said Taylor wrote that he knew she had “suffered enough and didn’t want to bring me any more pain”.

In the letter, he also offered to meet her but she said she was “not ready”.

Paul Taylor and Michael Barton were jailed for life in 2005 for the racist murder of Anthony Walker.

Walker died as a result of an ice axe being swung “at him with such force that its end smashed through his skull and was embedded in his brain” . He was only 18.

Update: Three Greeks Face Trial For Attacks On Asians & Africans

Three people went on trial in Athens Tuesday in a rare criminal case against xenophobic violence and the first charges related to a series of vicious attacks on Asian and African migrants in the Greek capital.

The trial of a 44-year-old woman and two men aged 31 and 47 was adjourned to 12 December. They are charged with group assault and causing serious injury in connection with the Sept. 16 stabbing of a 24-year-old Afghan asylum-seeker.

Each charge carries a possible prison term of three months to five years on conviction. This is the first trial of this nature since 1999 when a Greek man was given two life sentences for shooting nine migrants.

“The fact that these people have been brought to trial is positive,” said Giorgos Tsarbopoulos, head of UNHCR’s office in Greece. “It takes courage for foreign victims to go to the police since many feel they will be attacked again.”

Feds Sue Over Alleged Racial Discrimination In New York Apartment Rentals


Loventhal, Goodman and Velasco were caught red-handed by African-American and white “testers” sent to the red-brick, 72-unit building near W. 238th St. to inquire about empty apartments, the suit alleges.

Velasco refused to give a black tester a rental application on April 8, 2009, but hours later provided a white tester with an application, according to the suit.

On April 29, 2009, he allegedly told an African-American tester that the building had no available apartments, but the same day showed an empty apartment to a white tester.

On May 8 and Nov. 18, 2009, Velasco steered away African-American testers while offering apartments to white testers at discounts, according to the suit.

Accused Thai Killers: “Australians Are Racist”

Two Thai men accused of murdering good Samaritan Luke Mitchell claim they cannot get a fair trial in Victoria because of racism.

Surad Seehaverchart, 29, and Thatiya Terdputham, 36, are fighting extradition over the 2009 killing of Mr Mitchell, 29, who was stabbed five times after he broke up a fight outside a Brunswick nightclub.

Mr Seehaverchart told a Bangkok court yesterday he was happy to stand trial in Thailand but did not want to be returned to Australia, because he had been called a “stupid Asian” and had heard reports of many racist attacks.

Asians have to stay low profile to avoid being bullied in Australia,” he told judges in Ratchada Criminal Court.

He said he had been a student at Taylor College in Melbourne.

He flew back to Thailand soon after Mr Mitchell was killed and was arrested several months later.

He denied running away.

Asked why he wanted to stand trial in Thailand, he said: “Because I’m Thai. If I’m found guilty, I’d like to be punished in Thailand.”

Asked by one of the three judges what he was afraid of, he replied: “I understand the procedures in the Thai court. I’d like to prove my innocence to a Thai court only.”

He and Mr Terdputham, dressed in orange prison garb and with heavy metal chains on their legs, denied killing Mr Mitchell, a chef from Sanctuary Lakes.

After yesterday’s final witness hearing, they told reporters the person who stabbed the Melbourne chef two years ago was a third Thai man yet to be arrested, who is reportedly the son of an influential military officer.

“We did not kill him. The one who did, he’s away – he’s still on the run,” Mr Terdputham said after the judges had left the court.

SA Journalist Arrested In New Zealand For ‘Looking Like A Drug Dealer’, White Peers Claim Racism

New Zealand police arrested and strip searched a black South African rugby journalist drinking with white colleagues in a pub because he “fitted the profile of a drug dealer”.

Vata Ngobeni, who works for the Pretoria News newspaper and acts as an analyst for South Africa’s national broadcaster SABC, was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning and taken to a police station where he was strip searched.

When he tried to explain that he was a journalist on tour covering the Springboks’s performance in the Rugby World Cup, which New Zealand is hosting, he was told they were following standard procedure when they spot someone who fits “the profile of a drug dealer”.

The reality? I live in Shibuya and there are protest marches ‘every weekend’ by large groups of Japanese citizens who want Chinese and Korean people to leave Japan. I repeat: they march ‘every’ weekend. And the protest groups are not just old angry men, it also has young, attractive women/housewives, teens, a full cross section of Japanese people. So, compared to korean & chinese foreigners, we are in heaven. Still, I think it’s important to remember that even though most Japanese don’t even care if we are here or not, there ‘are’ a large number that would prefer we were just visitors and not residents.

The latest Global @dvisor survey conducted in 23 countries shows that only Russians are more likely than Britons to agree that there are too many immigrants in their country (77% do so). Other countries with similarly high levels of agreement are Belgium (72%), Italy (67%), Spain (67%) and South Africa (66%). The Japanese are the happiest with their current level of immigration – just 15% think there are too many immigrants.

Is violence against women a big problem in Japan?

By JACKIE HOFFART

Florence N. Smith
Teacher/photog., 36 (U.S.)
Absolutely. I recently read that one in five Japanese women have suffered violence or the threat of violence from the men in their lives.


John Henville
Teacher, 27 (Canadian)
I think unchecked, overt sexism here is a leading cause of aggression towards women. I'm troubled to think of how much violent crime against women goes unreported.


Makiko Ando
Trading, 33
Besides physical abuse, many people in Japan are not aware of the issue of mental abuse. There should be more opportunities for women to learn how to protect their own dignity and security.


Veronika Racmonova
Finance (Czech)
I feel much safer here than in Prague, but if there is one big problem I think it's that women here behave according to men's expectations rather than their own feelings.


Michiel Oostindie
Engineer, 30 (Dutch)
I think if you compare Japan to other countries ― like Mexico, for example ― it's not that bad here. The women I know don't complain or seem to have any signs of problems.


Kaori Ito
Child care, 28
I know someone who was a victim of domestic violence. For victims, there should be more in place than just shelters. I think that's one of many big problems in Japan.

Petrina


I met Petrina and her daughter in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Petrina lives with her three children in a women's shelter, and her husband stays at a men's shelter on the other side of town.

Families having to split up is often common in homeless services, and can be a road block to families accepting services. Unfortunately, in communities where there is no family specific shelter the only options are remain homeless or split up.

Social assistance provides this family with $688 a month, which makes it challenging to rent an apartment. Daycare is also an issue. The cost of daycare is the reason Petrina had to drop out of school and often becomes a barrier to finding employment.

Rise In Homeless Female Vets Tied To Military Sexual Abuse
First Posted: 8/17/11 08:37 AM ET Updated: 8/17/11 09:15 AM ET



The number of homeless female veterans is on the rise and the high rate of Military Sexual Assault may be partly to blame.

Between 2008 and 2009, women veterans made up 7.5 percent of the estimated 75,609 homeless service members, according to the Department of Veteran Affairs. The same organization found that 20 percent of of female Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have experienced Military Sexual Abuse, a trauma that is more likely to impede a veteran’s transition back to society, than a combat-related trauma, according to a 2009 Clinical Psychology Review study, the Portland Monthly cited.

"I think I can say confidently that every single woman in the military has dealt with sexual harassment at some time in their career," Mickiela Montoya, a homeless veteran, told ABC. Montoya, who served as a policewoman in Iraq for seven years said a fellow soldier threatened to rape her in Iraq.

有道ブログでハーグ関連をまたやっているので、すこし確認しておく。

 ハーグ条約について、、サボイエ事件のような場合に悪用されたりせず、また、女性の権利がしっかり守られるなら、紛争当事国の裁判所で紛争が解決されることに基本的に反対するものではない。

 日本で結婚・子育て・離婚しようと思ったら日本の法律で、アメリカならアメリカの法律で、というのは当事者が覚悟しなければならない。

WEST VIRGINIA: There is a presumption in favor of the parent who has been the primary caretaker of the child. There is no provision for joint custody.

Statistics of a Fatherless America




Cool Dad of the Week: Among fathers who maintain contact with their children after a divorce, the pattern of the relationship between father-and-child changes. They begin to behave more like relatives than like parents. Instead of helping with homework, nonresident dads are more likely to take the kids shopping, to the movies, or out to dinner. Instead of providing steady advice and guidance, divorced fathers become "treat dads."

Only 11% of mothers value their husband's input when it comes to handling problems with their kids. Teachers & doctors rated 45%, and close friends & relatives rated 16%. (Source: EDK Associates survey of 500 women for Redbook Magazine. Redbook, November 1994, p. 36)
"The former spouse (mother) was the greatest obstacle to having more frequent contact with the children." (Source: Increasing our understanding of fathers who have infrequent contact with their children, James Dudley, Family Relations, Vol. 4, p. 281, July 1991.)
"A clear majority (70%) of fathers felt that they had too little time with their children." (Source: Visitation and the Noncustodial Father, Mary Ann Kock & Carol Lowery, Journal of Divorce, Vol. 8, No. 2, p. 54, Winter 1984.)
"Very few of the children were satisfied with the amount of contact with their fathers, after divorce." (Source: Visitation and the Noncustodial Father, Koch & Lowery, Journal of Divorce and Remarriage, Vol. 8, No. 2, p. 50, Winter 1984.)
"Feelings of anger towards their former spouses hindered effective involvement on the part of fathers; angry mothers would sometimes sabotage father's efforts to visit their children." (Source: Ahrons and Miller, Am. Journal of Orthopsychiatry, Vol. 63. p. 442, July `93.)
"Mothers may prevent visits to retaliate against fathers for problems in their marital or post-marital relationship." (Source: Seltzer, Shaeffer & Charing, Journal of Marriage & the Family, Vol. 51, p. 1015, November 1989.)
In a study: "Visitational Interference - A National Study" by Ms. J Annette Vanini, M.S.W. and Edward Nichols, M.S.W., it was found that 77% of non-custodial fathers are NOT able to "visit" their children, as ordered by the court, as a result of "visitation interference" perpetuated by the custodial parent. In other words, non-compliance with court ordered visitation is three times the problem of non-compliance with court ordered child support and impacts the children of divorce even more.

Poverty and the Single Parent

However, a higher proportion of children in poverty come from single parent homes (Dowd 1997: 20). In 2003 also, the Census Bureau reported 42.3% of children who are being raised by single mothers were below poverty (http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty/histpov/hstpov10.html).

Fathers without visitation or joint custody pay only 44.5% of child support owed, but fathers with visitation pay 79.1% of child support owed.

Fathers with joint custody pay 90.2% of child support owed.

The number of single-parent homes has skyrocketed, displacing many children in this country. Approximately 30% of U.S. families are now being headed by a single parent, and in 80% of those families, the mother is the sole parent. The United States is the world's leader in fatherless families.

Father absence contributes to crime and delinquency. Violent criminals are overwhelmingly males who grew up without fathers.

Russell Armstrong Wife and Child Beater Claims First Wife

Filed under : Celebrity News

Russell Armstrong’s attack on estranged wife and fellow Real Housewives of Hollywood star Taylor Armstrong was not the first time he had beat up on a woman. Apparently, he was also known to hit his children in anger.

In court documents dug up by Entertainment Tonight, Russell Armstrong’s ex-wife Barbara Fredrickson claimed the late reality star “hit me … kicked me … blackened my eyes … threw crystal drinking glasses at me … and spit on me.”

The restraining order which she took out on Russell Armstrong on August 20, 2004, runs to 43 pages.

The bombshell allegations that Armstrong not only beat both his wives and his children from his first marriage come just one day after we brought you the photos of Taylor Armstrong (40) with a black eye and bruised forehead, also courtesy of Entertainment Tonight. The photo, taken in an LA hospital, dates from just a few weeks before Russell’s suicide.

Apparently, Russell Armstrong didn’t stop at beating women, either. Fredrickson stated in the court documents that he also slapped their then 6-year-old son Aiden in the face and violently shook him. Aiden was allegedly so scared of his father that he would vomit before visiting with him.

In the court paperwork, Aiden is quoted as saying, “Daddy Russell hit me in the face

Published: September 28, 2011



PLANT CITY --


Many readers shared their comments online following the Sept. 18 slaying of Beatrice Ann "Bea" Dickey, a 44-year-old mother who was found beaten to death in the master bedroom of her Walden Lake home.

Dickey, a member of St. Clement Catholic Church and the Polk County Sheriff's Office's highest-ranking civilian employee, died at Tampa General Hospital, where she was flown for treatment.

Dickey and her 44-year-old husband, Lawrence, had just returned home from a night out, when she was attacked with an aluminum baseball bat, according to an arrest report. He was charged with first-degree murder in his wife's death and was being held last week without bail at Hillsborough County Jail.

JACKSON COUNTY -- A Pascagoula man arrested on felony charges is accused of severely beating his ex-girlfriend and setting fire to her car, Sheriff Mike Byrd said Tuesday.
“We got a call about her, and she collapsed in an officer’s arms,” Byrd said Tuesday, adding that the suspect, identified as Francisco Barragan, 29, of Pascagoula, had searched for the woman until he found her Monday.
Sheriff’s deputies initially got a call about a vehicle, later identified as the woman’s car, on fire near the Executive Inn on U.S. 90 on Monday morning.

Sheriff’s deputies later found the woman severely beaten in the area of Pecan Road. The sheriff said she’d also been strangled during the assault. She was taken to Singing River Hospital, where she was in stable condition Tuesday.

Nevada First in Domestic Violence Murders

POSTED: SEP 21, 2011 8:38 AM
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 2:30 PM




LAS VEGAS -- More women are killed in domestic violence incidents in Nevada than in any other state in the country. According to the Violence Policy Center's Report, Nevada has been first four out of five years. The numbers were released ahead of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.

Domestic violence victim Mona Bowers has her self-esteem back and is sharing her heartbreaking story so others can escape.

"He beat me on my wedding night. Every day, you'd come home. You never knew if you were going to get beaten or not. He'd throw you down a flight of stairs. He'd pull you by the hair of the head and keep kicking you," she said. "People don't understand the thing of domestic violence. You see, these men, they beat you and beat you until you feel worthless, and they kill your self-esteem."

Bowers says in 1974, her young son became a victim to the horror at home.

"He kicked him and kicked him and kicked him, and knocked him all over the house," Bowers said. "I said, ‘Why?' Because, the little boy asked for a donut and his father said no. So, the little boy had to take a beating."

Lack of Protection for Un-Married Women
A woman who complained to the Ankara Judiciary because of domestic violence was denied protection because she was not married officially but religiously and thus did not fall under the scope of the "Law on the Protection of the Family".

Ankara - BİA News Center 27 September 2011, Tuesday

30-year-old female A.A. from Ankara was beaten by her husband Emin K. when she refused to give him the money she earned as a waitress. The marriage of the couple was not officially registered but carried out by an imam, the worship leader of a mosque. The young woman took her four-year-old daughter and went to hospital. Subsequently, she applied to the police station in her neighbourhood.
A.A. went to the Ankara Courthouse and filed a criminal complaint at the prosecution. She was then sent to the Forensic Medicine Institute to obtain a medical report.
According to the press, A.A. explained the violence she experienced in her complaint and said that Emin K. told her "I will not surrender to the police before I have not killed you".
The young woman submitted the medical report on the results of the violence she had been imposed to the prosecution.
She waited for the decision together with her daughter when she was informed that the court was not entitled to take a precautionary decision since she was married religiously and not officially and thus did not fall under the scope of Law No.4320 on the "Protection of the Family".


戸籍にはいっていなかったので、家庭内暴力をうけても保護されなかった、と。



日本はSexist country だといわれることがある。
家庭内暴力もあり、あるいは、先日も、膝枕ルームだかなんだかで、片思いがもつれて殺人事件に至るケースもあった。ストーカーで殺害された事件もあった。
(もっとも、殺害件数でいえば、アメリカに負けるだろう、と思うが・・・・)

パキスタンやバングラディッシュで硫酸をかけられる女性もいる。また、アメリカで拳銃で撃たれて顔を失う女性もいる。

こうした弱者たる女性虐待はグローバルな問題であろう。
それについて、問題意識をもち、また社会を改革していくことは重要なことである。

 しかし、一部の欧米人が非欧米国に向ける視線のなかに、グローバルに解決しようという態度ではなく、自らの暗闇の部分を他者・異端者にシャドーとして投影する視線を感じるのだ。それは欧米中心主義の視線である。

North America

In 2001, Dr. Richard Estes and Dr. Neil Alan Weiner estimated that in the U.S., 162,000 U.S. homeless youth are child prostitutes (CVE) and that 57,800 children in homes (including public housing) are estimated to be victims of CVE. They also estimated that 30% of shelter youth and 70% of homeless youth are victims of CVE in the United States.[23] One third of street-level prostitutes in the U.S. are under 18 years old while fifty percent of off-street prostitutes are less than 18 years old.[23] Off-street prostitution includes massage parlors, strip clubs, and escort services. According to Estes and Weiner, 12 to 14 is the average age of entry into prostitution for girls under 17 years old in the United States while the average age of entry into prostitution is between 11 and 13.[23]
A study by Unicef Mexico and the DIF/National System for Integral Family Development estimated that more than 16,000 children in Mexico were involved in prostitution (in June 2000);[24] a 2004 study by researcher Elena Azaola estimated that some 17,000 children under the age of 18 are victims of the sex trade in Mexico;[25] the State System of Integral Family Development (DIF) reported that more than 20,000 minors were victims of child prostitution in Mexico in 2005, an increase since the year 2000.[26] Out of Mexico City’s 13,000 street children, 95% have already had at least one sexual encounter with an adult (many of them through prostitution).[27]

新しい公共の世紀へ―市民の力で社会を変える




行政を立てなおす取り組みには、二つの潮流がある。

 ひとつは「小泉・竹中改革」のような小さな政府路線だ。「官から民へ」を掲げ、行政コストを下げて増税を避け、企業活動の活力や消費を生もうとする。労働人口が減っていく日本では、著しい経済の成長は望みにくい。活力を引きだそうと考えれば、「官から民へ」の手法は一定の説得力を持つ。

 もうひとつは増税路線だ。福祉社会を維持する費用を社会全体で担おう。高齢人口が増え、膨らんでいく福祉予算を賄うには増税しなければならない。借金を続ければ、いずれ日本もギリシャのような債務危機になりかねないと警告する。

■ウィン・ウィン関係

 だが、どちらにも危うさが潜む。「小さな政府」は行政が担うべき役割を放棄して、弱者に厳しい格差社会を招く恐れがある。増税論は納税者の財布を直撃し、消費など国内経済をしぼませかねない。

 そこに「新しい公共」の出番がある。

 原発事故で避難を強いられた福島県双葉町の人々が多く暮らす埼玉県加須(かぞ)市には、ユニークな事業がある。「ちょこっとおたすけ絆サポート」だ。

 買い物の代行や病院への付き添い、庭の草むしり……。誰かの手を借りたい人は、商工会が発行する「絆サポート券」を買う。1枚500円で1時間の支援サービスを受けられる。支援するサポーターは、商工会に登録した市民だ。09年度の開始から、1500時間分の券が売られ、高齢者らの利用が広がる。

 券は市内の商店などでの買い物に使えるので、お金が地元に落ち、地域経済を元気づける。サポーターは券とともに、人々の役に立つことで精神的な満足感も得られる。市は商工業をてこ入れでき、福祉充実の経費を抑えられる。それぞれがメリットを享受できる「ウィン・ウィン」の関係だ。


いうところの新しい公共という発想は、「官から民へ」の発想とまったく矛盾しない。この場合はうまくいったが、しかし、こうした自由な発想を、むしろ、規制で制限してきたわけだ。

小さな政府で格差が広がるというのは、政官民が癒着して、権益と暴利をむさぼることに起因する方が大きいのではないか。民間が競争すれば、料金は消費者に有利に働くのが道理である。格差はどんな社会でもある程度ある。それが莫大な格差になるというなら、税制で再配分すればよい。情報を透明にして、癒着がないかどうか、無駄な事業がないかどうか、メディアや市民が監視できるシステムのほうが重要である。

一生懸命働く一般公務員を減らせとはいわないし、公共ですべき事業があることは認めた上で、費用対効果は度外視、失敗しても責任はとりません、独占して、価格競争することはしませんという、それでも威張っていられる官僚による事業を私は信用していないから、それはやはり、なるべく少ない方がいいと思っている。


エジプト外相、中東和平行程表「失敗作」と酷評

【ニューヨーク=柳沢亨之】エジプトのアムル外相は24日、国連総会で演説し、米国、ロシア、欧州連合(EU)、国連の「4者」が23日に発表した中東和平の行程表について、イスラエルにユダヤ人入植中止を求めていないことなどを理由に「失敗作」だと酷評した。
パレスチナの後ろ盾である域内大国エジプトの拒否姿勢で、行程表は出だしからつまずいた格好だ。

 アムル外相は、イスラエルが入植やガザ封鎖を続ける限り「和平を口にすること自体、ばかばかしい」などと厳しく批判した。行程表は、パレスチナが国連加盟を申請したことによる和平プロセスの崩壊を防ぐ目的で4者が提示した。今後1か月以内の予備交渉再開などを求めた。

Racist Talk By NY Cops Caught On Wiretaps



It’s more than ticket-fixing chatter investigators caught on their wiretaps: Cops are also heard talking trash about the people they’re paid to protect, sources said.

The wiretap recordings at the heart of the probe captured conversations rife with racist and inflammatory remarks, sources told the Daily News.

“There’s overtly racist language,” said one source. “And it gets a lot worse than that.”

The shocking language could cause the scandal to spiral far beyond the 17 cops already indicted, tainting cases of hundreds of officers caught on tape, legal experts said.

“If a Bronx jury hears a cop call someone a n―-r or an animal, everything else they say goes out the window,” said one veteran defense lawyer with a client who was arrested by a cop implicated in the scandal.

Barbara Sheehan’s daughter testifies – describes daily domestic violence
Irish American lawyers battle in court for wife who killed her husband - VIDEO
By CATHY HAYES, IrishCentral.com Staff Writer


・・・・・

While being cross examined by Assistant District Attorney, Debra Pomodore Jennifer was asked how many incidents of violence she could recall in the Sheehan house hold.

Jennifer replied “Millions. It happened everyday."

・・・・・

She explained that Raymond Sheehan, a ex-policeman, would throw his food to the ceiling or to the floor if he was displeased with what his wife had cooked.

The daughter described her 21st birthday party which ended with her father telling her she would have to move out of the house. He then went outside and threw rocks at the house. She said: “It was very threatening.”

She told the court that it was the everyday violence episodes in the house which led her mother to open fire.

On Monday, according to CBS New York, Barbara Sheehan described in court how her husband would call her “stupid, fat and a terrible mother,” would choke her, knock her down, step on her and spit in her face.

Officials: Husband May Have Strangled Jersey City Woman
September 25, 2011 7:


ERSEY CITY, NJ (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A New Jersey man is being held on $1 million bail after his wife’s remains were found in a Jersey City basement.

LISTEN: WCBS 880′s Monica Miller reports



Police say Steven Acuna has been charged with murder after what is believed to be the remains of his wife, 32-year-old Randy “Amanda” Lehrer, were found in a 55-gallon cement-filled drum on Friday at the Charles Street apartment building where they once lived with their infant daughter.

Acuna was scheduled to be arraigned Monday. Authorities say he might have strangled Lehrer.

Investigators have spoken with Lehrer’s parents and they were able to corroborate a tattoo on the body, but officials are still waiting on DNA results to confirm the identity of the remains.

Lehrer was reported missing on August 17 after the two had an argument. Hudson County prosecutor Edward DeFazio says police think the killing is the result of “a domestic violence situation.”

"I Wanted to Die," Domestic Abuse Victim Said
Domestic violence is a silent killer claiming many lives every year in the Ozarks
Mary Moloney, Jason Crow
Reporter, Photographer
11:05 p.m. CDT, September 25, 2011



Bolivar, MO― More women were killed by men in Missouri than in most other states in the nation, according to the Violence Policy Center. Missouri rounds out the top 10 with Nevada, Alabama, Louisiana, Arizona, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, South Dakota and Hawaii. The study looked at data from the F.B.I's Supplementary Homicide Report. In 2009, 1,818 females were murdered by males in a single victim/single offender situation. When a relationship could be established, more than 90 percent of the victims knew who their attacker was.

Numbers aren't better in Greene County. Sheriff's officials acknowledge domestic violence often is a silent killer claiming many lives every year. In the Ozarks, abused women and children have a safe place to go, before it's too late.・・・・・


2009年に男性に殺された女性1818件のうち、9割が知り合いに殺されている、と。




・・・・・
One woman who is staying in the shelter is 42-year-old Rita. She is the mother of two kids and for 23 years, endured abuse at the hands of her husband. Eventually her daughter started to abuse her as well.

"'You're ugly, you're a liar, and you're stupid.' That's what he would say," explained Rita. "He made me believe that I was being punished for being bad."

Rita said her husband was addicted to drugs and would control everything, from the finances to when she was allowed to eat. Sometimes, she wouldn't even eat at all.

"I felt like a worthless piece of trash. Worthless piece of trash," she said, her voice cracking. "I was so desperate and so sad that I wanted to die. I just wanted it over. I didn't want to fight anymore. Every day was a struggle for me."

Rita's story is all too familiar for Kristi Doukas, victim advocate at the House of Hope.

"It's a much bigger problem then people think. I think if you are living in a neighborhood where there's 500 people, I think there are at least one or two people that are experiencing severe abuse... and you don't even know it," explained Doukas.

Rita didn't tell many people about her abuse, because she was afraid of her husband and she was afraid of what others might think.

"It's embarrassing. It's embarrassing and humiliating. You don't want people to know that you are treated in such a way," she said, shaking her head.

When she did reach out to some friends, they wouldn't help her.

"Some people don't want to know because they don't care and because they don't want to get involved. Their life is perfect and sweet and nice just the way it is. And they don't want anything messing it up," detailed Rita.

However when she broke down and told another friend about her situation, she was given the hotline number to the House of Hope.

"We've had several here that were in horrendous abusive situations and when they came in it did seem hopeless," explained Doukas. "We had a lady not too long ago that had been held captive by the person that she loved. For several days she was tortured, beaten, and sexual assaulted."

In 2010, staff members at the House of Hope devoted 160 hours to crisis intervention, getting victims into a safe and secure place away from their abusers. At the shelter, the hope is women who previously felt powerless begin to get their lives back.

Fighting domestic violence in N.C.

By: Annette Newell
Published: September 25, 2011


» 0 Comments | Post a Comment
RALEIGH, N.C. --
At a time when our state spends more than 4.6 million dollars a year to fight domestic violence, the incidents keep getting more violent, and more deadly. So far there are at least 52 deaths from domestic violence in North Carolina this year. And there are thousands more, who've sought out help from the legal system for protection.

But getting that protection is not easy. One victim described her journey through North Carolina's legal system. "Instead of law enforcement gonna help me, I feel like they're actually gonna arrest me, right there. It's some feelings that are so so terrible."

要するに台湾は見捨てられて、中国は、戦わずして、台湾を手中におさめ、余裕で、南シナ海・インド洋に進出、他方、アメリカはオーストラリアとの連携を強めて、そこから、迎え撃つ、というわけだが、かなり後退して受け身になってきている。

ミアシャイマーのオフショアバランシング:まとめ


●オフショア・バランシングとは、ようするに他の地域の国の友好国(バック・キャッチャー)にたいしてアメリカが(バック・パッサー)が「バックパッシング」(責任転嫁)をすることだ。

●バック・パッシングの狙いは、地元の友好国に侵略的な国家をぶつけて、自分たちだけはその侵略的な国家と直接対決を避ける、という点にある。


友好国を日本と置きかえると、

日米関係;昨日日米学生会議で講演。学生に幾つか質問した。現在米国において将来の戦略に付き、四つの考え方:(1)今後、米中は世界の二超大国と位置付け、協調を計る、(2)多国間協力関係を模索する、(3)オフショアーバランシング:米国は後退。地域の国を敵対国との関係で使用、

日米関係2;(4)現在の日米関係などそのまま維持。さて米国学生の一番多かったのはどれか。私は(4)を選択するのでないかと思ったが、実は(3)。オフショアーバランシングはあまり聞かない考え。だが、米国学生しっかり理解。考えて見れば米国に最も有利。日本に中国と戦う前面にでてもらう。


ということになる。経済の衰退の有無は別にして、そうした戦略があるのかもしれない。

その内実はいずれにせよ、アメリカは後退する傾向にあり、それは、日本は中国と対峙することを意味する。




アメリカがこの地域から後退していくのにあわせて、あるいは、それに先だって、アメリカと協調しながらも、日本の防衛力、したがって、自律性をを高めて、かつ、中国との直接的対峙がないようにしていくのが日本の課題であろう。

打ち寄せる波の上の小舟のように、うまくバランスをとって行かなくては沈没する。

再び奥山氏の投稿にもどると、

●戦争は始めに当事者なるのはアホ。最後になってから介入して漁夫の利を得るのが吉。


 戦争を回避するために、軍事力を高めるというのは、愚かで矛盾のように見えるが、相手が仕掛けたら損すると思わせるだけのものをもっているということは、戦争を回避する有力な手段である。また、自己の選択肢を他人に握られていないということもその際重要である。寄らば大樹で安全・安心というのは思考停止で、時代の潮流を見極めて、行く末を見定めるべきだ。



「主婦に冷たい政策」へ舵を切る小宮山厚労相、家族観めぐる論争も
2011.9.25



 優遇措置の見直しで女性の就労が拡大する保証はない。労働政策研究・研修機構の平成22年の調査では、パート労働者の25%がわざと労働時間を短くしていると答え、うち36%は厚生年金に加入しないためと回答した。年収基準を引き下げられると、主婦がさらに労働時間を短くする可能性もあり、主婦のパート労働者を多く雇用する流通業界などは労使双方が反対する。

 また、小宮山氏が制度改革の狙いを「世帯単位から、もっと個人単位になっていくということだ」と語るため、民主党保守派や自民党は「小宮山氏の議論は女性が全員フルタイムで働くべきだという考えで、主婦の立場を軽視している」と批判する。主婦の優遇措置見直しは、家族観をめぐる論争に発展しつつある。


これも時代の潮流をみるべき。

「女性が全員フルタイムで働くべきだ」というより、「より多くの女性がより多くの時間働かざる得ない」経済状況にすでになりつつあり、専業主婦でいられる余裕のある人々ーーー産経の記者の奥さん達か?ーーーを優遇する、社会的余裕もなくなってきており、また、専業主婦と一般人との不公平も是正すべきということであろう。

 それよりも、女性の就労が拡大して、子育て世代の夫婦が共稼ぎで愛のある家族を営めるような社会環境・労働環境を創設していくべきだ。

一部の保守は、一部の老人ばかり優遇して、移民は嫌だ、女性は家にいろ、それでいて、少子高齢化問題には着手せず、のようだが、それでは、日本が枯渇してしまう。

Antigua, Barbuda Want Reparations For Slave Trade


The Caribbean island State of Antigua and Barbuda demanded reparations for injustices suffered by African slaves and their descendants, saying at the United Nations that segregation and violence against people of African descent had impaired their capacity for advancement as nations, communities and individuals.

“None should disagree that racism and other legacies of slavery continue to shape the lives of people of African descent – thus reparations must be directed toward repairing the damage inflicted by slavery and racism,” Baldwin Spencer, the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, told the General Assembly’s annual general debate in New York.

He stressed that former slave-owning States should begin a reconciliation process by formally apologizing for the crimes committed by those nations or their citizens over the 400 years of the African slave trade.

“And to help counter the lingering damage inflicted on generations of peoples of African descent by generations of slave-trading and colonialism, we call on those very States to back up their apologies with new commitments to the economic development of the nations that have suffered from this human tragedy,” said Mr. Spencer.

Algerian doctors not allowed to practice in France
Font size: ennahar 25 September, 2011 12:59:00


Algiers- the French authorities have decided to ban all foreign doctors to practice medicine in French hospitals, according to the new French bill on health, which prohibits all foreign doctors, including Algerians, to practice this job in France

According to Dr. Bekkat Berkani, president of the Algerian doctors’ deanship, in a statement to Ennahar, this is a racist action by the French authorities, since neighbouring countries such as Tunisia and Morocco, have reciprocal agreements.
Dr. Bekkat reported that the number of physicians practicing in France is estimated at 4000 whereas only 500 doctors are registered with the French doctors’ deanship. Many of them are specialists and professors who work as resident doctors and forced to accept the position because of large pay compared to that in their country, in addition to the means at the availability of doctors in France.
For the president of the Medical Association, many of the Algerian doctors flee the country for Europe in general and France in particular because of the language.


フランス アルジェリア人医師は診療禁止。
イギリスなんかだと、言語が問題にされてましたけど、この場合にはその問題はない。他の国はアルジェリアと相互主義でアルジェリア人医師の診療を認めいている、というわけで、人種差別ではないか、と。



Stereotypes still surround musicians in many genres

By Rege Behe, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Sunday, September 25, 2011




When Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers performed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio, earlier this year, drummer Joffo Simmons arrived just a little bit after his bandmates. When Simmons tried to enter the venue, he was stopped by a security guard.

"The guy didn't believe I was with the band," Simmons says. "I couldn't get in."

He was not stopped because he lacked identification, but because he is black. It's a situation he's often faced during almost three decades with the Houserockers. There are people who still don't believe a black musician would want to play rock or folk or any genre outside of R&B, soul and rap. Simmons is one of a number of local singers and musicians who have defied the stereotype expectations of society.


”黒人”シンガーというと、R&Bやソウルミュージック、ラップといった固定観念があり、そうでない音楽をやるなんておもわれてもいない。

こうしたジャンルでない音楽をやる”黒人”のバンドのメンバーは会場で警備員から呼び止められることも多い、と。

Black and white twins
James and Daniel are twins. What sets them apart is that one is white and one is black – and the differences don't end there, as Joanna Moorhead discovers
Joanna Moorhead
The Guardian, Saturday 24 September 2011


双子の兄弟

お父さんは”黒人”、お母さんは”白人”

So how does it happen that a white and a black partner – who would usually produce, as Alyson and Errol did in their other children, black-skinned offspring – have a child who is as white as his mum? I spoke to Dr Jim Wilson, population geneticist at Edinburgh University – and his first question was, "What is Errol's heritage?" Errol is Jamaican – and that, says Jim, is the basic explanation.

"It wouldn't really be possible for a black African father and a white mother to have a white child, because the African would carry only black skin gene variants in his DNA, so wouldn't have any European DNA, with white skin variants, to pass on," he explains.

"But most Caribbean people, though black-skinned, have European DNA because in the days of slavery, many plantation owners raped female slaves, and so introduced European DNA into the black gene pool.


カリビアン系の”黒人”は祖先が”白人”に強姦されていたから、白い肌の遺伝子も持っているから、不思議ではない、と。




"The boys were in different classes, so for a while no one realised they were related. Then someone found out, and the story went round that this white boy, Daniel, was actually black, and the evidence was that he had a black twin brother, James, who was right here in the school. And then Daniel started being picked on and it got really ugly and racist, and there were lots of physical attacks. Daniel was only a little kid, and he was being called names and being beaten up by much older children – it was really horrible. We even called the police."

"I was really bullied," cuts in Daniel, his face hardening at the memory. "People couldn't believe James and I were brothers, and they didn't like the fact that I looked white, but was – as they saw it – black."

It is interesting that it was the white twin, Daniel, and not the black twin who was on the receiving end of racism – but, though it's counter-intuitive, Alyson agrees that it betrayed very deep-seated prejudices. "Those kids couldn't stand the fact that, as they saw it, this white kid was actually black. It was as though they wanted to punish him for daring to call himself white," she says.


学校でいじめられたのは”白人”のダニエル君。周囲の”白人”の子供達は、”黒人”なのに”白人”に見えること、(彼等の考えからすれば)”黒人”なのに、自分を”白人”と呼ぶことに対してに我慢できず、罰を与えるつもりでいじめていたのではないか、と。

因みに二人は兄弟愛でむすばれているものの、性格は全く違い、”黒人”系のジェームス君はゲイであるのに、ダニエル君はそうではない。
 
お母さんは、ゲイであることで偏見を持たれたり、差別されるのではないか、と心配している。



Killer cops sentenced in beating death of New Orleans man
Family's struggle key to justice being served
By Andrew Cheramie
SEPTEMBER 24, 2011



Two New Orleans Police Department officers were sentenced Sept. 15 in the beating death of Raymond Robair. Six years earlier, before Katrina hit New Orleans, local handyman Raymond Robair, 48, was beaten to death. Former NOPD officers Melvin Williams, an NOPD veteran known for a high number of arrests, and Dean Moore, a rookie, were found guilty in April.

Williams was sentenced to over 21 years, while Moore will serve more than 5 years. Moore stood by and did nothing while Williams brutally killed an unarmed man who was not implicated in any crime. Witnesses saw the former officers beat Robair to death while he was attempting to fix a neighbor's roof vent.

After fatally beating him, the former officers dumped Robair at Charity Hospital without any documentation. They never responded to radio calls. They later claimed Robair had powder cocaine in a bag wet with saliva on him and overdosed.

As part of the cover-up, Williams and Moore claimed Robair ran and fell as an explanation for his injuries. Robair died with a lacerated spleen and fractured ribs, which are incompatible with an injury caused by falling.

Saranac Lake Central School District Faces $6 Million Lawsuit Over Racial Bullying

A young girl who was bullied, harassed and assaulted in school because of her race has filed a $6 million federal lawsuit against the Saranac Lake Central School District.

The girl, who is referred to in court papers as A.O., and her parents, Amy and Hiram Oliveras, filed a complaint Monday in U.S. Northern District Court, alleging the school district violated her civil rights and the state’s Human Rights Law by failing to protect her from bullying, racial discrimination and harassment.

The complaint alleges the girl, who is now 12 years old and whose father is of Caribbean descent, was “subjected to a learning environment hostile toward her on account of her race.”

It cites several incidents that took place during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years, the summer of 2010 and the fall of 2010.

In one of those incidents, which took place June 21, 2010, the contents of the girl’s backpack were smashed and a racial slur was written with her deodorant on the sidewalk outside the Saranac Lake Middle School.

School officials were told about what happened shortly thereafter, but the racial slur wasn’t washed off until eight days after the incident.

The backpack incident sparked a firestorm of criticism against the school district. School officials responded with an apology, admitting in a letter to the Enterprise that they had failed in their responsibility to protect the girl and vowed to do better.

Despite the district’s promises to protect the girl, the lawsuit claims the bullying and harassment continued. The complaint says the district arranged for the girl to be the summer school partner with a student who was a suspect in the backpack incident, and who had previously grabbed the girl’s breast and threatened to beat her up.

In September 2010, the complaint says, the same student pushed the girl down several stairs at school. These incidents were reported, the complaint says, but no suspension or other action was taken against the student.

・・・・・
“The worst part was the adults didn’t care to do anything about it, and that’s not right,” Oliveras said. “You can let some things go, but there’s some things that are just not forgivable to me.”

Watchdog: Gov't paid $600 million to dead people


(AP) WASHINGTON - The federal government has doled out more than $600 million in benefit payments to dead people over the past five years, a watchdog report says.
Such payments are meant for retired or disabled federal workers, but sometimes the checks keep going out even after the former employees pass away and the deaths are not reported, according to the report this week from the Office of Personnel Management's inspector general, Patrick McFarland.

In one case, the son of a beneficiary continued receiving payments for 37 years after his father's death in 1971. The payments ― totaling more than $515,000 ― were only discovered when the son died in 2008.
・・・・・
Both the Obama administration and Congress have made it a higher priority to crack down on improper government payments.

Last year, government investigators found that more than 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each from the massive economic recovery package went to people who were either dead or in prison.

パレスチナ 国家樹立と和平に近道はない(9月25日付・読売社説)



自治政府はその袋小路を脱する最後の手段として、加盟申請に踏み切ったのだろう。

 しかし、オバマ米大統領が21日の国連演説で語ったように、イスラエルと自治政府の合意がなければ、パレスチナ国家の樹立も2国家の平和共存も達成できない。そこに至る近道はない。

 自治政府側には、イスラエルの存在を認めようとしないイスラム原理主義組織ハマスが自治区の一部を支配しているという問題がある。自治政府はまず、この足元の分裂を正すことが重要だ


産経社説

パレスチナ申請 中東和平を阻害しないか
2011.9.25




 独立国家を希求するパレスチナの悲願は理解できる。米主導でまとめられた1993年のオスロ合意と翌年のカイロ協定で、パレスチナはヨルダン川西岸とガザ地区の暫定自治権を獲得した。

 その後の和平交渉が繰り返し頓挫した理由は、イスラエルがヨルダン川西岸の入植活動をやめないことにもよるが、パレスチナ側にも問題が少なくない。

 第1が内部の意思統一だ。パレスチナ評議会(議会)は、和平交渉に反対するイスラム原理主義組織ハマスが多数を占め、アッバス議長率いる穏健派ファタハは第2勢力にすぎない。ハマスが実効支配するガザ地区からのロケット弾攻撃が続くようでは、イスラエル側のパレスチナ不信は絶えることがない。

 第2に、現状では経済的にも「国家」として自立性に欠ける。パレスチナは物資の多くをイスラエルからの輸入に頼り、輸出も大半がイスラエル向けだ。

 米国から年間4億7千万ドル、原油の9割を中東に依存する日本からも93年以降計11億ドル以上の支援を受けている。和平交渉が途絶すれば、これらの支援にも支障がでることをパレスチナは深く認識すべきである。


読売、産経はアメリカ側のかたをもつ。


産経の支援云々の最後の議論は、事の正否を論じているいるのではなく、おれらのいうことを聞かないと支援もなくなるよ、という脅しだ。

政治というものはそういったところがあるが、しかし、実質的にどうなのだろうか。

たしかに、パレスチナの側にも問題はあろう。しかし、イスラエルの側にも大問題がある。パレスチナの人々は
enough is enough もういい加減にしてくれ、といっている。

逆に、「パレスチナにも全く問題がないとはいえない、しかし、イスラエルの側の非は、大きい、加盟に賛成することによって、イスラエルに国際的に圧力を加えるべき」、という議論も十分成り立つ。


・・・・・日本はなるべく目立たないように様子をうかがう、と。

出口の見えない日本のエネルギー問題
2011.09.23(金)





 電気料金が高いのは、独占企業にはコスト削減の動機がほとんどないからだ。それどころか、利益率は政府によって決められており、電力会社はコストを膨らませれば、収入を増やせるのだ。


 改革派は、電力会社の地域独占の解体を求めている。発電と送電を分離し、新規参入企業に対し門戸を開けば、効率を高め、コストを下げることができる。しかし大手企業を代表する経団連は、東電をはじめとする電力各社が電力の安定供給を担保しているとして、自由化に反対している。


反原発派の人達もまず、こちらに集中してみたらどうか。(当面)原発維持派でも、こちらには賛成出来る人がおおいのではないか。かつ、脱原発の道筋もできるのではないか。



「復興特区」で法人税を廃止せよ

高い法人税の大部分は雇用喪失という形で労働者が負担するのだ。

かといって法人税をすべてやめるのは非現実的だから、私は被災地に設置される予定の「復興特区」で法人税を廃止することを提案したい。これによって自動車メーカーは、アジアに移転する代わりに被災地に移転するかもしれない。円高の問題は残るが、法人税率40%がゼロになれば、生産性を勘案すれば国内に立地するメリットはあるだろう。法人事業税(地方税)を残せば、被災地の自治体は企業から税収を得ることができる

 歴史を学ぶには双方の見方に留意することが大切だ。それで教科書問題についての平川提案はこうである。見方の異なる教科書を二種類とも読ませ、生徒に相違点を拾わせ、どの記述が納得がいくか議論させる。外交や歴史は両面を観察せねばならない。高校入試には「日本が大東亜戦争と呼んだ戦争は米国で何と呼ばれたか」あるいは「太平洋戦争は戦争中の日本で何と呼ばれたか」といった常識的な問題を出すといいだろう。

Racist LSE lecturer removed from compulsory subjects
Thu 22 September 2011



The London School of Economics lecturer involved in the publication of racist material demonising African women has been banned from teaching any compulsory courses.

An internal review and formal disciplinary hearing by London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has concluded that the racist posting of its lecturer, Dr Satoshi Kanazawa contained flawed hypothesis and due to its lack of evidence and incendiary content should not have been published.

On 15 May 2011 Dr Satoshi Kanazawa posted an article on the Psychology Today website entitled “Why are black women less physically attractive than other women?”. As a result both editorial team of Psychology Today and the LSE received considerable criticism including that from LSE students and academics about the racist nature of the publication.

An Ohio woman who was the victim of racial bullying is speaking out, hoping others can learn from her experience.

“I didn’t realize I was adopted. My family was Caucasian but they never made a big deal about it, but on my first day of kindergarten a little boy came up to me and said, ‘Why are your parents white?’” said Michelle Jones-Jackson.

Jones and her twin brother Michael became part of Ned and Debbie Jones’ family a week after they turned two years old. A few years later, they found the world outside their loving family home in Coolville a cold and sometimes cruel place.

They were two of only a handful of black students in the Federal Hocking School District. Michelle said she would rely on her brother to stand up for her when she was taunted. By the second grade, she said, the taunts were intense.

I was called [n-----], black trash, told nobody loved me and I should just kill myself,” Michelle said.

Her brother was held back, so by the 4th grade, Michelle was often on her own, trying to fit in. But, she said, things only worsened as she reached junior high school.

“That’s when the death threats came. I would be in music class and boys sitting behind me would say things like, ‘Going coon hunting tonight, burn a cross in your yard, you’re not going to live another day,’” she said.

Michelle said her family proved a haven and filed a lawsuit to toughen school policy. She said she wouldn’t have made it without her family and two friends.

In high school, a more subtle racism and isolation led Michelle to make self-destructive choices, still bearing scars from the razor blade she used to cut herself.

When I was bullied, I was numb. I would put that smile on my face and go to volleyball and track or studies. When I got home, I needed to feel some type of pain,” she said.

Update: California High School Charged With ‘Institutionalized Racism’ By Boardmember


Boardmember Oscar de la Torre said Thursday at the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education meeting that “institutional racism” was responsible for inflated suspension rates for African-American students at Santa Monica High School.

The comments followed a presentation made by SMMUSD staff regarding efforts to improve racial sensitivity at the school after a May 4 incident in which two white members of the wrestling team chained an African-American student to his locker and shouted “slave for sale,” and other racial epithets.

A noose was also reportedly found nearby.

Citing statistics from the 2010-11 school year, De La Torre said that while African-American students comprised about 10 percent of the student population, they accounted for 31 percent of school suspensions. De La Torre said this disproportional percentage was not true of white or Latino students

Australian Schoolboy Claims He Was Beaten, Racially Abused For Being Muslim

A Sydney schoolboy was brutally bashed and verbally abused by more than 20 students for being Muslim, the boy has claimed.

Hamid Mamozai, 15, was allegedly hit up to a dozen times by two fellow students at Asquith Boys’ High School on Wednesday as several more cheered and hurled racial abuse from the sidelines.

”[They were saying] hit him more, hit him more, he deserves it, you terrorists, go back to where you came from, go blow something up,” Hamid told Channel 10.

He said he was kneed in the face four of five times and hit up to 15 times in the face.

Hamid was taken to hospital unconscious and with internal bleeding but suffered no serious injuries.

Najia, Hamid’s sister, said he had been subjected to racial abuse at the school for up to two years and was ”emotionally and mentally sick” because of it.

”The boy is scared … he doesn’t get out of the house,” she said.

His mother, Hosna, who fled war-torn Afghanistan 20 years ago, said she had repeatedly complained to the school to no effect.

”I just want to know why this is happening, why the principal doesn’t care that students are being bullied, why don’t they stop it? I want other parents to know why this is happening,” she said.

Asquith Boys’ High declined to comment last night.



これも学校のいじめ。オーストラリア。イスラム教徒の生徒が2年あまりいじめにあい、「このテロリスト、祖国に帰りやがれ」と怒鳴られながら、殴りつけられた、と。


Slasher case magnifies huge hole in Indiana’s hate crime enforcement

Dr. Jason Johnson




When Elree Jones walked into an Indiana convenience store to pick up a beer and make a quick phone call he had no idea that his life would be painfully and irrevocably changed. Jones had asked the store clerk if he could use the phone to call a family member and while calmly placing a call all hell broke loose.

Mark Neal, 50 years old, simply walked up to Jones, screaming, “I’ll kill you nigger” and began slashing at his face, leaving a gash from his forehead to his lower cheek. Jones tried to defend himself and ran outside the store only to have Neal follow him, screaming, cutting, slashing and calling for his blood. Jones finally escaped to a friend’s house where he managed to call the police and get medical attention.

Does this sound like a hate crime to you? It won’t to the state’s attorneys in Indiana. When you look at the larger story – the level of animus, racism and downright insensitivity on the part of local police authorities in Lafayette, Ind. – it is a frightening sign of where our nation is today.

Berlin network seeks all-embracing concept to fight racism in Germany


The scene is not so unusual. Four young men, about 20 years old, stand in a subway station in the Bavarian town of Nuremberg and start to berate a man for the color of his skin. They insult and swear at him and accuse them of taking their beer.

Eric, from Burkina Faso and only a little older than them, threatens to call the police if they do not stop. It works, at least this time.


Such examples of racism do not only affect Africans in Germany. The Berlin-based Anti-discrimination Network has recorded numerous examples of discrimination.

There is the case of the neurologist who refuses to treat an elderly Turkish woman because she speaks no German - even though her daughter has agreed to attend and translate everything.


The Durban conference called on countries to draw up action plans to curb racism
In other complaints dealt with by the network, a Columbian girl now living in Berlin says that she is not invited to job interviews because German is not her mother tongue. And a young doctor is immediately rejected from the application process in a private practice because she refuses to take off her headscarf.

Such cases are typical.


ドイツ。

地下鉄では、肌の色のことで、ガミガミ言われ、ドイツ語が出来ないからと、その娘がすべて通訳するといっているのに、診療を拒否され、また、ドイツ語が母国語でないからといって、企業などの面接も断られる。そういった例が典型的な人種差別の事例である、と。


こうした事例は日本でもありえるじゃないかな。

I don’t think you’re sincere at all, Eido. http://www.japanprobe.com/2011/05/23/why-i-turned-on-debito-org/"This post by you on Japan Probe proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt. By your very tone above, you’re as usual being a smarmy little [unflattering word]. That’s putting it like your trolling kind would. On my site, I would just note more charitably that you’re an apologist in activists’ clothing, snuggling up to people you might see as rivals so you get enough dirt on them to eventually turn on them (your words, see Japan Probe link above). You’ll do that, of course, as soon as you can find a big enough group supporting your world view you can glom onto, and take the public eye off you (in this case, internet trolls on Tepido) ― because you’re too mentally insecure to stand alone and stand up to bullies. You’re the typical contradiction found amongst the less savory internet denizens: a coward and a bully.

No doubt this exchange will turn up with that group as evidence of something anti-Debito.org (it should in fact be seen as evidence of your obsessiveness). But so what, I’m not a moderator of this site and don’t need to act in moderation. So I’ll say what I feel: Get lost, turncoat. Don’t turn from snuggler into stalker.


知らん単語がでてきてね。
 
スマーミーがごますりで、ターンコートは裏切り者ね、なるほど。


漫画でいうと、デビルマンなんかが「裏切り者の名をうけて、すべてを捨てて戦うおとこ~♪」で、デーモン族から追われていたのだが、さしずめ井上さんは、デビト族から追われるデビルマンか?

しかし、そういう意味ではひこざえもんさんかもスマーミーで、ターンコートなどとよばれてしまうのであろうか。


ことの発端は、井上氏が有道ブログがリンクを貼っていた投稿が(一時)消えたのでどうなったの?とコメントした。


はじめは、

Oh there you are, Eido. I thought you weren’t participating on Debito.org anymore (you’ve said so on at least two occasions, here’s one). Clearly you’ll only drop by if you can make some kind of stink or blame me for something.

Anyway, I can’t explain. They’re the source, and if the source won’t back something up, then that’s that. It’s their responsibility, like any source, to back up their claims. Waiting for final confirmation about what happened.




いや、わからない、と説明していた。(これは私も記憶にある)
ところが、投稿がもどってきたら、

太字の部分をつけたしたわけだね。「あれ、なにいってんの?ちゃんとあるじゃない?」と。あとで付け足すことによって、井上氏がブログ荒らしをしているのではないかという印象操作をしているのではないか、と。

でも、さすが有道センセ、頭いいから、最後の「説明できない」という部分は残している。頭隠して尻隠さずってところかーーーこれじゃあ、付け足しがバレバレでしょう。

とにかくあそこにコメントしても、気に入らないと公開されないか、あるいは、公開されても、編集されたりするから、コメント欄を含めて有道センセの作品といってよいでしょう。


まあ、英語圏のコメント欄を読んでいると、英語の勉強にもなるし、また、井上氏のように、うまい論理運びと上記のセンセのように個人誹謗ばかりの下手な議論というのも勉強になる。

 ソクラテスは死ぬか、という論題で、すべての人間は死ぬ、ソクラテスは人間である、よって、ソクラテスは死ぬというのは筋がとおっているが、論者であるお前は裏切り者だ、ごますりだ、というのは論題の議論になっていない。議論と論者は区別すべきであるにも関わらず、往々にして議論からはずれて論者についての誹謗になってしまうわけですね。

日本語でも英語でも論理的な文章というのはあるのだが、論題から外れず、論理がすっきりしていると日本語でも英語でも伝わりやすい。
(私は下手)

で、ちょっと強引につなげるがーーーー久しぶりにデービッドチャートさんのブログをのぞいたら、

Activist Debby Chan takes on one of the world's favourite brands in her fight for workers' rights.
Activate Last Modified: 19 Sep 201



Apple is one of the coolest brands on the planet but it is currently under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

A spate of suicides at one of its main suppliers, Foxconn, has led to allegations of labour rights abuses in its Chinese factories.

"News of the spate of suicides [at the] Foxconn [plants] in 2010 alarmed me greatly and I wondered whether the harsh management methodology drove workers to despair.

As consumers we should ask ourselves how certain products are made .... Corporate social responsibility is always window-dressing measures without enforcement mechanisms and remedies for workers. So the only way to stop labour rights violations is through campaigning. We hope that more consumers can pressure Apple and Foxconn."

ニューヨークでは、モロッコ人の日常生活が警察によって秘密裏に監視されていることが暴露された、と。

 これは、先日日本でも、警察の秘密文書がネットで流れてイスラム教徒について、似たようなことが日本でも行われていたのではないか、といわれているわけですね。

 NYのケースではCIAもからんでいるということで、全くの推測で、根拠はないですけど、日米関係のありかたを考えると、米国から、日本でもやるように、”要請”というか、”助言”というか、そんなものがあったのかな、と不図思います。

 だから、日本が悪くないというつもりはない、一般市民をなんの根拠・権限もなく、監視するのは違法であり、間違っている。

Police forces cease recording race of people they stop
Forces that no longer record ethnicity are those most likely to stop disproportionate numbers of black people



Vikram Dodd
guardian.co.uk, Thursday 22 September 2011


Police forces with some of the worst records of targeting black people have decided to stop recording the ethnicity of the people their officers stop and ask to account for their movements, the Guardian has learned.

Five out of the 10 forces most likely to use stop-and-account powers disproportionately against black people – West Midlands, Avon and Somerset, Thames Valley, Sussex and Hertfordshire – have halted recording the race of people they have stopped. They have used a government change in the rules introduced in March, which was aimed at cutting bureaucracy.

In total, 21 out of 43 forces in England and Wales will stop recording details, according to responses to requests under the Freedom of Information Act.

Louisiana saw an advert for cleaning and waitressing jobs in the UK, and travelled to England with a man from the employment agency.
"I had my own passport. But when we arrived he took my passport away and told me I had to work as a prostitute.

"He said I owed him money for the travel and I would pay him back this way. I was shocked. I would never have chosen this. I did not know what to do. I don't feel able to talk properly about what happened to me after that."

While the US boycotts the UN Durban 3 conference on combating racism, racism and oppression are still deeply entrenched in America. Slavery and segregation maybe a thing of the past, but African Americans are still no where near achieving equality.
A big fat “no” to an anti-racism meet-up at the UN – from the US and some of its friends with benefits.
“They want to protect each other. The United States because of its original sin of genocide against Native Americans and slavery, and the Europeans because of their ongoing neo-colonial ties to Africa and Asia,” said Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report.


人種差別撤廃を唱えるダーバン会議をアメリカはボイコットするようだが、アメリカも今でも人種差別はあらゆる分野でのこっており、アメリカはアメリカインディアンに対するジェノサイドや奴隷制度、そして、欧州人は進行中のアフリカ・アジアにネオ植民地主義があり、それに触れられたくないから欧米はボイコットで協調しているんじゃないか、と。

ロシアトゥデイらしいといえば、らしい。
