National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds is downplaying the shocking incident at the Rose Hill Roman Catholic School on Monday, where pupils had to duck and cover under desks as criminals exchanged gunfire nearby. In a social medial post on Facebook on Thursday, Hinds said the video was "misleading" and that the shooting was 200 metres away.
On Thursday, noted “free-thinker” and basketball player Kyrie Irving took to Twitter to boost a movie and book, Hebrews to Negroes, stuffed with antisemitic tropes. The 2018 film was directed by Ronald Dalton, Jr., and based upon his 2015 book of the same name. A description for the film states that it “uncovers the true identity of the Children of Israel,” while a similar one for the book reads, “Since the European and Arab slave traders stepped foot into Africa, blacks have been told lies about their heritage.” Both suggest Hebrews to Negroes espouse ideas in line with more extreme factions of the Black Hebrew Israelites, which have a long history of misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and especially antisemitism. -Rolling Stone--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/renaldo-questelles/message
