Anti Racist Is A Code Word For Anti White
A major state-level teachers union accused a group promoting school choice for African-American families of supporting the notorious white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan in a series of statements on Thursday.
The Louisiana Federation of Teachers accused the Louisiana Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO) of advancing a “pro-KKK agenda,” in the words of one tweet sent from the union’s official Twitter account. Another claimed that the group “endorses teaching that the KKK is good.”
Before the match ended one wrote the game would end ‘the same way WWII did. With Hiroshima and Nagasaki burnt to the ground’.
The game – and the tweets – fell on the 67th anniversary of the Nagasaki atomic bomb attack, which killed 70,000 people on August 9, 1945.
Another, @CocoSully7 wrote: ‘Watching this game makes me think of how much I really do hate Asians.’
@emilydunderwood tweeted how winning a gold medal in the women’s football meant the U.S. was ‘almost even’ with Japan for the the December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbour attack.
Others hit back at the racist tweets, arguing the women’s game had nothing to do with either attack.

The U.S. team’s win made up for the heartache of last year’s World Cup final when they lost to Japan on penalties.
The women’s coach Pia Sundhage even declared her side could be ‘unstoppable’ at the next World Cup in 2015.
American Carli Lloyd scored both goals last night in front of a record 80,203-strong crowd at Wembley Arena in London.
Lloyd said: ‘Wembley was amazing. ‘To play in all these historic stadia is amazing. 80,000 people for a women’s final is unbelievable – it says a lot and we feel very lucky.’
The highest-ranking official in football wants the Swiss player who was expelled from the Olympics for posting a threatening and racist message to be banned from other competition.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter supports the SwissOlympic committee‘s decision to send Michel Morganella home for his Twitter post about South Koreans on Monday, hours after his team lost to the same opponent. Blatter said FIFA would accept any further international ban taken in Switzerland against Morganella.
“This is now up to the football federation of Switzerland, they have to deal with this case and then they will transmit it to us,” Blatter said Tuesday from Wembley Stadium. “If the national association transmit the decision taken by their respective committees to FIFA asking for a ban, then we do it.”
Blatter, who is Swiss, was attending an anti-racism event at the London Games.
“It is embarrassing for the whole football family and for the Olympics games,” said Blatter, who was at Wembley as hosts Britain played Brazil in women’s football.
Morganella’s case comes after England’s Football Association charged Chelsea defenderJohn Terry for racially abusing an opponent last season. Terry also faced criminal charges, which were ultimately dropped.
Blatter caused furor with the Terry case when he was quoted saying any racial incidents could be settled by a handshake at the end of a match and could be “solved from within.”
At the “Let’s Kick It Out of Football” event, chairman Herman Ouseley admitted he initially thought Blatter “didn’t have a clue what racism is” after hearing the remarks, but said Tuesday “the further I reflected on his alleged remark, I thought it might have some validity. If Nelson Mandela could walk out and shake the hands of his persecutors, then there’s no reason why on the football field you can’t.”
