Begs the question if asking why is racist?

“Racism requires the ability to deploy, or at least benefit from, power,” says Jamila Michener, an associate professor of government at Cornell University who researches racial inequality and poverty. “So people who can neither deploy nor benefit from power can’t be racist. They can be prejudiced, but they can’t be racist.”
What does that assertion have to do with black people?

Tackling racism on social media is just the tip of the iceberg


Owen Jones

Standard Guardian and Owen fare, what is different you ask?

The main image on this article was changed on 29 July 2020. An earlier version incorrectly used an image of the rapper Kano.
Guess they all look the same to the Guardian.

I see. So they corrected their error and they published this fact as well. All quite open.
What's the big deal?

Would you prefer that they publish lies and misrepresentations like in the other stuff you post?

Or the poor lad or lady who was told to source a file photo clicked on the wrong image name, or the image was named incorrectly.

An interesting turn of phrase from CNN to refer to one of the many genders.
