Your column here – Silence is Complicity

first_img Ina Thorner says: 3 Comments We all MUST stand together for this inhuman violence to stop. Black, brown, red, yellow, white, mixed. All of us. Black men are being murdered. Red women are being murdered. Brown men, women and children are being kept in cages. Many immigrants are in slavery. Where are the moms? The women of the Me Too movement? The businesses we all sustain? Do they care less for human life than property? Where are the interfaith organizations? The balanced media coverage? The politicians? May 30, 2020 at 12:18 PM I cannot even imagine standing around doing nothing while an adult verbally harasses a child! What is wrong with people??? I hope that I shall always do the right thing and be an ally.Thank you for all that you do! Comments are closed.

Many are wondering how/why do these events keep happening. There may be some clues in a local event in Santa Monica that you may have read about in last weekend’s paper. A little black boy was riding his bike home with his mom. They were around 4th and Montana when a young white man started swearing at and using the “N” word while verbally assaulting the boy. That hate crime was bad enough, but this was not a deserted street. There were passers-by and they DID NOTHING! This is nothing new. Robbie Jones, a 62yr Pico Neighborhood resident, says “28 years ago, when my son was attending Roosevelt elementary school. I experienced almost the exact same incident . The guy was a body builder. He came directly at me shouting obscenities and racial slurs at me and then attempted to punch me in the face as people on the street walked pass. I remember being relieved and grateful as I hurriedly got on the bus shaken, disturbed and just cried my eyes out. I remember feeling ashamed (as though I had caused this to come upon myself). I felt frightened, angry and sad all at the same time. I am still shaken by the incident today.”Do white people understand that when we see or hear something and DO NOTHING, we are causing more trauma? Silence is not neutral. Silence is on the side of the oppressor. Our high schools are not immune. When black students are threatened, white students stand by and do nothing and white parents protect the oppressors, and deride the black parents, causing further trauma. In a racist country, especially when witnessing a racist event, to be silent is to strengthen the systems of oppression and increase the trauma. Silence in the face of racism speaks volumes. Silence IS complicity.If we are white and we “Stand by” and “act nice” and are not working to be anti-racist, we are fueling the system. We did not shout at this little boy, but we might as well have. We didn’t shoot Ahmaud Arbery or suffocate George Floyd or murder the thousands of other unnamed victims of racism, but we might as well have. We are a part of the system that allows this to happen. If we are not working to eradicate racism then we are contributing to the problem. From the little boy on 4th and Montana to the man jogging through a white neighborhood, these incidents stem from systemic problems. We have a choice. We can do nothing and allow it to become worse. Or we can actively work to eradicate it. Anti-racist work will be misunderstood by your friends. They will try to convince you that there was a reason for each of these incidents, claiming that in each case, the black person was in the wrong somehow, and that you just don’t have enough evidence/information. You are jumping to conclusions and don’t really understand how life works, they will say. Your friends mean well but they are contributing to the problem. And so are you if you allow them to derail your sense of justice. That is part of how the system reinforces itself.Do not stand by and watch and strengthen the racism that infects our society. Stand with us against racism and work for justice. It does not have to be this way. We can dismantle this system. But it will take a whole lot more of us standing up, calling out and working for a better way. We hope you will join us. #CommitteeForRacialJustice, #SURJ, #BlackLivesMatter, #AWAREWritten by the Committee for Racial Justice.

Airtel moves step closer to sealing Telkom Kenya buy

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 16 DEC 2019 States call for conditions on Verizon, Tracfone deal The Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) approved Airtel Kenya’s acquisition of rival operator Telkom Kenya, a move which would step up competition against market leader Safaricom.CAK director general Wang’ombe Kariuki outlined conditions for the acquisition in The Kenya Gazette, the government’s official publication, stating Airtel Kenya cannot sell the merged entity for the next five years and must fulfil all existing contracts with government entities.In a move to safeguard jobs, CAK demanded 349 of Telkom Kenya’s 674 employees be retained after the acquisition. Two-thirds must be employed for a minimum of two years, with the rest to be absorbed by network partners. Telkom Kenya stated in August it would make 575 of its staff redundant as a result of the acquisition.One last hurdle for the merger is an investigation by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, which already delayed the process.Prior to the probe, a committee in Kenya’s National Assembly said the deal had “all the hallmarks of a scandal” noting it enabled private individuals to acquire a public company “through the backdoor for a song”.The merger of the second- and third-largest operators in Kenya was announced in February: the new company would be called Airtel-Telkom.
