SQUAD'S OWN RACISM RUNS RAMPANT. Proof. Also Racism in Puerto Rico, Somali, and Palestine.
Updated: Feb 29
Why doesn't AOC discuss Puerto Rican racism? Tlaib, Palestian racism? Omar, Somali racism? Pressley, Communist Chinese racism and her personal racism?
According to the Race, Gender and Class Journal, many--not all--white or light-skinned Puerto Ricans have historically been racist or bigoted against dark-skinned Puerto Ricans.
“Although Puerto Rico is portrayed as a racial paradise, where race is subordinate to national and cultural identity, nothing could be further from the truth. Racism runs deep, with a long history fueling the racial rancor between White/light-skinned and Black/dark-skinned Puerto Ricans. People of apparent Black heritage flood the prisons and penal systems, live in the poorest and most oppressive conditions and are known as less able to obtain upwardly mobile jobs, even when qualified. There is a strong association between Black and poor, slums, crime, unemployment, etc. Many Puerto Ricans, including dark-skinned ones, are quick to negate the existence of racism among them while regarding those of apparent African ancestry as inferior. They believe that a successful life means lighter-skinned generations of children. They are quick to negate an African root even though most have varying levels of African ancestry and the African presence permeates most aspects of their daily life.”

Just because AOC is a Puerto Rican American does not mean that she is racist or bigoted. But AOC, the rest of the squad, and many democrats insist that white Americans are the only racist people in the world-- which is simply not true by any measure. Yes, there are some racist white people but there are also racist Puerto Ricans, Somalis, Blacks, and Palestinians. Name a race that has not shown Racism. You can't. No matter what race we are, we can overcome our biological tendencies, or our upbringing, or social pressure and not judge or exclude by skin color. To be racist is to form exclusive in-groups based on perceived racial characteristics of out-groups. To call oneself a “person of color” is to be racist because of implied exclusion of whites, I hate to tell you, but “white” is a color, anyway.
To single out white Republicans as racist is a very racist and bigoted statement. The Squad and the Democrats are showing their racism by accusing ALL white Republicans of being racist, when we all know it is a small percentage.
Ayanna Pressley, so eloquently, said this to embarrass a nation:
“We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice," she said. "We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice. If you’re worried about being marginalized and stereotyped, please don’t even show up because we need you to represent that voice."
You can’t get any more racist or bigoted than this.
Ilhan Elmi aka Ilhan Omar showed us her racism regarding Hispanic immigrants.
“Ted Cruz rips Ilhan for implying Latinos are too dumb for merit-based immigration”
Ilhan tweets and deletes:
“A ‘merit-based’ immigration policy is fueled by racism toward the Latino community. Our immigration policies shouldn’t be based on discrimination, fear, or bigotry. We should welcome immigrants to our country and offer a simple pathway to citizenship.
Ilhan is being racist by suggesting that Hispanics don't have enough merit to compete. Are Hispanics just dumb votes to arrogant and supremacist Ilhan?
That sparked a ton of blowback from critics.
Michelle Malkin tweeted:
“So Ms. Smarty Pants deleted her tweet, cuz she finally realized that in accusing the President of racism, she was sounding mighty racist herself.”
Senator Ted Cruz tweeted:
“As the son of a Cuban immigrant whose Dad came to get a math degree and became a computer programmer, I’m troubled that Dems seem to believe Hispanic immigrants can’t qualify for skills-based legal immigration.”
“Bringing in more scientists, engineers & doctors is good for US jobs.”
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex, called out Rep. Ilhan, D-Minn, over a now-deleted tweet that suggested having a merit-based immigration system would disadvantage Latino migrants.
In February, Tlaib called Housing and Urban Development official Lynne Patton, a black woman, a “prop” for appearing in the gallery during a hearing where members of Congress were debating whether Trump was racist.
In May, Tlaib made the bizarre statement that she felt “a calming feeling … when I think of the Holocaust.” She explained by making the false claim that Palestinians had offered Jews a “haven” from the Holocaust.
ARAB RACISM IN EGYPT
Mona Eltahawy, a columnist for Egypt's Al Masry Al Youm and Qatar's Al Arab, wrote in the New York Times an article titled, "Racism: The Arab world's dirty secret". She was a witness to racist attacks by Arab Egyptians on blacks and stated: "We are a racist people in Egypt and we are in deep denial about it. On my Facebook page, I blamed racism for my argument and an Egyptian man wrote to deny that we are racists and used as his proof a program on Egyptian Radio featuring Sudanese songs and poetry! Our silence over racism not only destroys the warmth and hospitality we are proud of as Egyptians, but it also has deadly consequences." She believed racism was behind a police crackdown on 5,000 Sudanese refugees and the beating to death of some women and children. She added: "The racism I saw on the Cairo Metro has an echo in the Arab world at large, where the suffering in Darfur goes ignored because its victims are black and because those who are creating the misery in Darfur are not Americans or Israelis and we only pay attention when America and Israel behave badly." She criticized the country's attitudes: "We love to cry 'Islamophobia' when we talk about the way Muslim minorities are treated in the West and yet we never stop to consider how we treat minorities and the most vulnerable among us." While noting that racist incidents are condemned in the United States, she said that in Egypt, as well as in the Arab world, there is a culture of silence toward racist incidents which reflects negatively on Arab society.
In the Arab Gulf states, Sudanese, who consider themselves Arabs, are labeled as abeed, literally meaning slaves, or as fusduq al-abeed ("slave's peanuts"), referring to Sudan's production of peanuts.
Racism directed towards blacks
Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has been the subject of some viciously racial personal attacks, alongside vociferous criticism of her policies. These included an anti-black racist Cartoon in Palestinian Authority's controlled Press Al Quds. The New York Times reported in 2006
"Her comment that the Israel-Lebanon war represented the “birth pangs of a new Middle East”— coming at a time when television stations were showing images of dead Lebanese children — sparked ridicule and even racist cartoons. A Palestinian newspaper, Al Quds," which "depicted Ms. Rice as pregnant with an armed monkey, and a caption that read, “Rice speaks about the birth of a new Middle East."
MODERN RACISM AND SUPREMACY ATTITUDE OF ARAB SOMALIS AGAINST BLACK ETHNIC TRIBES
“An article from the Journal of Somali Studies 1 (2014): 91–118 and applied by an Iowa State study “mapped the nature of prejudice and hate discourse used by Somalis against the Bantu Jareer and the Yibir, Gabooye, and Tumaal communities in Somalia. The hate discourse is premised on assumptions of their supposed unholy origin and their engagement in occupations and social activities that are despised by the so-called Somali noble groups. The prejudice and hate discourse against the Bantu Jareer Somalis is derived from their African origin and alleged African-like physical characteristics in comparison with the features of other Somalis.”
“The Somali Bantu Jareer and the Somali caste communities come from different social, historical, and ethnical backgrounds. The Somali Bantu Jareer community can be divided into three groups: (1) runaway slaves, (2) emancipated slaves, and (3) an indigenous community. The social formation of the first two can be traced to nineteenth-century Indian Ocean slave traders, who brought large numbers of slaves from Tanzania and Mozambique to Somalia. The slaves provided Racial and Caste Prejudice in Somalia 94 labor that supported the booming plantation economy in the southern Somalia Banadir coastal communities of Mogadishu, Merka, and Baraawe, as well as in the Jubba and Shabelle valleys and the wider agro-pastoral regions of southwestern Somalia.”
“One narrative suggests that at the time of the arrival of the Somali founding ancestor there existed in the land a vicious magician king who ruled the country. This king, according to the narrative, was ruthless and terrorized the people—raping women, killing innocent children, and in general exploiting the people—until the founding Somali ancestor, with the help of Saint Aw Barkhadle, caused two mighty hills to close down on him. This event created the distinction between the noble and non-noble groups.”
“The formation of this image results from a collective experience and operates through the public media and culminates in a number of collectively shared feelings, including: (1) a feeling of superiority shown by dominant groups through the disparagement of the behaviors and qualities of the subordinate minority group, (2) a feeling that the subordinate group is intrinsically different, alien, and therefore justifiably excluded, (3) a feeling of the oppressors’ proprietary claim to certain areas of privilege and advantage, and (4) fear and suspicion that the subordinate group harbors designs on the prerogatives of the dominant group (Blumer 1958, 4). “
“Taken together, these four sentiments constitute the crystallization of a fully developed group position and refer to positional arrangements such that the feeling of superiority places the subordinate group in a lower position.”
Are Afro-Arabs More Racist Than Whites?
“While it’s not every Arab in Egypt and other Afro-Arab countries who are racist, it is no secret that racism exists in most of these countries and the people involved don’t want to accept it.”
“Yvonne Khamati, a Kenyan diplomat attending the conference, filed a formal complaint with the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, accusing an Egyptian expatriate of referring to sub-Saharan Africans as “dogs and slaves.”
“The first form of oppression against Black Africans was from the Arabs.”
“In Mauritania, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and other Afro-Arab countries, slavery and other forms of oppression against Black Africans are still widespread.”
“In Sudan, it has been widely reported that nearly 20 million Black Africans in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile regions were ethnically cleansed during the first and second Sudanese Civil wars.”
“It is this form of abuse that triggered the infamous Darfur War, which ended with the excision of South Sudan, a predominantly Black Nubian state, from the larger Sudan.”
“Racism is also very rife in Libya if the 2000 anti-African racist violence is anything to go by. According to Amnesty International, thousands of Black Africans were massacred during the Libyan Civil War in 2011.”
DARK HISTORY OF ISLAM AND SLAVERY
The Koran (Quran) endorsed slavery of non-Muslims. Not only did Islamics widely participate in slavery, but they also dominated it as the undisputed experts. Slavery preceded Mohammed in Arabia. Mohammed owned over 40 slaves, actively traded slaves, turned prisoners of war into slaves, and was a slave trade advisor. Mohammed gave his companions slaves who had been war prisoners.
When Mohammed gained control of Arabia he had the power to end slavery but instead adopted and regulated it in his favor.
When Mohammed’s Arabic armies reached the coast of East Africa they captured many black slaves and slavery became an important segment of their economy.
The Muslim Slave Trade began in the 7th to 8th centuries as a result of Islamic conquests, a full 7 centuries before the Atlantic Slave Trade. It expanded to include slaves from Southern Europe and India and the network of countries trading slaves expanded greatly. Muslims were not commonly slaves but females were more common as sex slaves and sold to Muslim nations in North Africa.
The end of the Muslim Slave Trade was in the 20th century with Islamics being the last to abolish it from European colonial pressure.
The main victims of slavery were African blacks called “Zanj” which, no surprise, means “black.”
Mohammed, “Allah’s Messenger,” once said, “You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.” Sahi Bukhari 9:89: 256Arabic historian Muqaddimah, of the Golden Age of Islam, said: The Negro nations (sub-Saharan Africa) are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because Negroes have little that is human and possess attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals.
Slavery was prominent in the three Muslim Caliphates. Slaves were used as political gifts and parts of treaties. Arab supremacy classes:1. Arab Muslim2. Non-Arab Muslim3. Non-Muslim4. Slaves
Arab supremacy classes:
1. Arab Muslim
2. Non-Arab Muslim
The Muslim Slave Trade reached India, France, Spain, Italy, Iceland, and the British Isles. The Muslim slave overlords treated the slaves poorly resulting in occasional rebellions. The Ottoman Empire also maintained slavery, an ingrained part of Islamic society. Women and children were in high demand. Ottoman harems were sex slave harems. Ottoman Turks captured Caucasian boys to make them into soldiers.
Most slaves were fully castrated and this began prominently in early Islamic history because they were deemed to be more valuable as free from sexual urges. Most slaves died from castration, so the ones that survived were of high value.
Europeans began ending slavery in the 19th century, but the Ottoman Empire continued mass slavery into the 20th century. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Yemen practiced slavery until the 1950s.
In Mauritania and Sudan, slavery continued much longer with Mauritania officially abolishing slavery in 1981, but in both countries, it continues to this day unofficially. Slaves were sold in open auction in Libya around 2015. Mauritania waited until 2007 to criminalize slavery. Muslims were directly involved and contributed heavily to the Atlantic Slave Trade as the “experts on hand compared to the European amateurs.
The Muslim slave trade existed at least 700 years before the Atlantic slave trade and ended after the Atlantic slave trade due to European colonization of Africa. The Muslim or Arab Slave trade, when compared to the Atlantic Slave trade, had massive sex slavery and castration, a preference for children, higher death rates, and racially targeted non-Muslims.
