Just really no substantial evidence for this claim, but I hear and read this all the time. Perhaps it’s because whites are seen as the one’s whose culture is always moving forward, and blacks backwards? That’s why Obama can lecture Africa about its homophobia but not Russia in the same manner. White supremacist double standards.

White supremacy needs its double standards and myths in order to continue its existence, and trick people into the idea that it doesn’t exist. I sounded off more than three years ago about the problematic Swiss’ racial profiling and burqa bans. Now, Switzerland is poised to enact racial segregation versus legal immigrants. Even religion is implicated in this blatant racist law: “In Bremgarten, a church will also be off-limits to asylum-seekers.” It seems even after apologizing for neoconfederate Paula Deen and the fact that she’s a billionaire could not even keep Oprah Winfrey from experiencing Swiss racism. No form of monetary gain, no politics of respect [sorrynotsorry Don Lemon] through capitalism or socialism will solve the problem of the color line. White supremacy must be called out, confronted, and dismantled as an institution.

When it comes to Jews and Muslims, the Swiss are not so neutral

I would like to thank gracious God for the First Amendment. Freedom of speech, religion, of the press, and to assemble.

Some disturbing news from that neutral country of Switzerland.

First, Sunday, a ban was passed throughout all cantons, by majority vote, that would disallow minarets to be placed on top of mosques.  Where are the fighters of religious freedom on this issue?

And even scarier, the campaign posters have large racial overtones, affirming my commentary on BLACK FRIDAY.

And now, emboldened by Sunday’s vote, another Swiss political party is promoting a ban on
the separate cemeteries that Jews and Muslims currently have.

Xenophobia. Hysteria. Racism. Orientalism. Anti-semitism. All driving forces in public policy debates in Switzerland.

I sense history repeating itself.
