    South Africa: Rioters Trash H&M Stores Over ‘Racist’ Hoodie

    I wonder why South Africa is such a s–thole?

    From Sky News:

    People angered by a “racist” advert for H&M have ransacked some of the clothing chain’s stores in South Africa. Protesters from the left-wing Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) group targeted six shops in Gauteng province, police said. Video posted on social media showed racks of clothes being pushed to the floor. In one location, rubber bullets were fired to disperse demonstrators. While officers are monitoring the situation, they said they had not made any arrests so far.

    They chose to riot over this hoodie:



    EFF’s Floyd Shivambu tweeted after the incident: “That @hm nonsense of a clothing store is now facing consequences for its racism. All rational people should agree that the store should not be allowed to continue operating in South Africa.”

    “[IMPORTANT NOTICE]: All the stores of that racist retailer @hmsouthafrica are CLOSED. Racism must fall and we will never tip toe around racists,” he wrote in another tweet.

    The “Economic Freedom Fighters” are a Marxist-Leninist party in South Africa whose leaders have openly said they want to kill all white people.

    They’re the third largest party in the country.

    Their members were seen dancing in celebration over the destruction of the store:

    EFF leader Julius Malema defended the destruction of H&M’s stores, saying no one should be allowed to “make jokes” about black people.

    “No one should make jokes about the dignity of black people and is left unattended to,” Malema said. “We make no apology about what the fighters did today against that store called H&M.”

    “We are not going to allow anyone to use the colour of our skin to humiliate us, to exclude us. We are black we are proud, we are black we are beautiful. We are black and we are not ashamed of being black.”

    Wow... I'm far from racist but this seems like an exaggerated reaction. It is illegal and destroying property. Perhaps the print was uninspiringly chosen but surely protest could have been expressed in a more peaceful manner?

    This story has spread a lot farther than any reports of farm murders. The average naive fool is now worried about H&M being "racists," but they don't even realize that blacks are routinely murdering white families in South Africa. The Jewsmedia doesn't need to lie about things, all they need do is accentuate stories that drive their narratives, and they certainly DON'T want any international sympathy for white Christian farmers in South Africa. It IS important to them that the general public come to feel that "racism" is rampant, though, and that the only "racism" that exists is harbored and expressed by people of European descent.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    That about sums up the public's manipulated mind set. Gruesome murders are irrelevant, but let somebody famous crack a joke about Blacks and the whole world is up in arms. And believe me, this makes the jokes actually more funny than they really are.

    As for the slanted journalism. They actually ARE lying they not necessary make up "facts", but they give it a slant by accentuating and omitting. I found this confirmed by investigating supposed incidents of "White against Black Racism". Turns out that Blacks, portrayed as innocent victims did do something provoking that kind of reaction. The "coffin-case" comes to mind. Some White guys portrayed as "farmers", but actually being farm workers themselves, put a Black dude in a coffin (which they videoed). Big tantrum thrown about this. But after investigating the story it came out that the Black dude actually a) was caught stealing b) threatened the families of the White farm workers. The putting into the coffin was meant as a harmless deterrent. Court sentenced them to 11 and 14 years for "assault" and "attempted" murder.

    So this is the kind of message these people are sending, that it's okay to act violently, destroy and vandalize stores because they don't like the merchandise. As long as it's in the name of "anti-racism!", they are justified to do any crime they want, because they are "angry"... It's pure criminal behavior.

    And H&M's reaction was predictable: apologize, remove the photo from their website and pull the product from the shelves. This only further validates and encourages such reactions for the future. Honestly, I have more sympathy for the mother of the child, who showed more backbone and stood by her principles. On the other hand, maybe it's not so bad that the mainstream and politically correct see what kind of a monster they have created and keep feeding. Today it's H&M, tomorrow it may very well be another victim. No one remains safe and untouched, not even the mainstream, rich or politically correct themselves... the H&M store they trashed was actually located in the rich and "nice" part of Johannesburg. They think it's only those evil nazis and bigots who "get what they deserve" but that isn't true, at least not any longer. This is really just another form of hatred, and that they like to believe it's warranted makes it all the more dangerous...

    And as human ignorance knows no borders, this became an international incident. The black boy’s mother has been called a ‘monkey’ herself by anti-racists because she didn’t agree that this whole thing was a big deal and because she said ‘people shall get over it’:

    Clarifying her stance, Ms Mango explained she 'really doesn't understand' the issue, adding: 'Not coz am choosing not to but because it's not my way of thinking sorry [sic].' In a separate post she added: 'Everyone is entitled to their opinion.'

    Speaking to Gulf News, Ms Mango later revealed she had been targeted by trolls over her comments, including those who used 'monkey' as a racial slur.

    She said: 'How can you fight racism if you make racist remarks?,' she said. 'You cannot try to defend my son and use the same words to describe me.'
    So she wrote: 'Am the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled... stop crying wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here... get over it .' And then anti-racists called her a ‘monkey’ for being not ‘sensitive’ enough...

    Obviously, one needs to be a racist in order to understand this message (‘coolest monkey in the jungle’) in a racist manner. Many parents call their kids monkeys (or other animal names) in an endearing, playful manner and ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’ would be something like ‘coolest kid on the block’...

    Also, it was just one shirt model out of three, a print... nobody noticed it, not the kid... the mom of the kid didn't notice it either... one would have to consciously look for ‘racist’ messages to spot everything and make a big deal out of it. They corrupt every innocent thing. And then Tweets like these: "Why is the white kid "a jungle survivor" and the black kid the "coolest monkey in the jungle"? How do you think this is okay?" People are brainwashed and incited to such an extent, it’s difficult to envision how humanity can overcome this…

    Unfortunately, it didn't end there. The mom and her kid also had to move house in the wake of the controversy. Incredible.

    They also "torched" the store online, of course, everyone had to be "outraged" and express their indignation and crocodile tears...

    Reaction online has been mostly negative, with the general consensus being that the add was “inappropriate,” “offensive” and “racist.”

    The King Center suggested more diversity and cultural sensitivity training is needed to prevent retailers from causing mass offense.

    Others believed a boycott of the store was the only way to communicate just how inappropriate the image was.

    However, others were calmer in their responses, believing that it may have been a simple mishap with no racist undertones and that any offense was being artificially injected into the conversation.
    Well, at least some people still saw the light...

    “We are not going to allow anyone to use the colour of our skin to humiliate us, to exclude us. We are black we are proud, we are black we are beautiful. We are black and we are not ashamed of being black.”
    How about

    We are black and we are rational beings. We are black and we will not vandalize and plunder over an ad that is not racist. We are black and we are self-confident. We are black and we fail to see how such a slogan could refer to black people. One needs to be a racist to perceive the ad as racist. Maybe all the white folks who think the ad is racist, should foremost search for the racist in their own souls.
    Ummm... no, that belongs in a different universe, for certain.
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    Yes, idiots are everywhere.



    The first few minutes of this video shows a mass negro protest in front of an H&M shop in Belgium.

    They chant:

    “Black and Proud! Shame on H&M!”

    and

    “Long Live the Black Race!”

    All the good stuff is in the first 3 minutes of this video. After that, it’s just the manager trying to talk sense into them – obviously not an easy task, given the raw material she has to work with.

    and France



    Here we see the Ligue de Défense Noire Africaine (LDNA) “Black African Defence League” harassing staff, demanding that the shirt be removed from sale and threatening to come back if it isn’t.

    They talk in French but their body language and tone will give you the gist of it. The negroes address some sales floor guy as if he is the one making the decisions. He tries to be reasonable and asks if they want to have a discussion with his manager but they just keep haranguing him.
