A Health Ministry inspector poured bleach over pots full of food in a Sudanese restaurant in Tel Aviv Sunday night.
The inspector, from the ministry’s district office for Tel Aviv, was participating in a raid by police and municipal inspectors on illegal businesses owned by African migrants. Altogether, the raid shut down 10 businesses in the city’s Neveh Sha’anan neighborhood, confiscating their equipment and welding the doors shut. The equipment was then loaded onto vans by other African migrants who had been hired as contract workers.
Many diners saw the inspector pouring bleach on the food, and one, asylum-seeker Aladin Abaker from Sudan’s Darfur region, posted photos of the incident on his Facebook page. He also described his feelings of humiliation.
“Everyone − except the destroyers − was in tears from the humiliation,” he wrote. “The waitress told us, ‘I’ve seen very harsh things in my life, like torture in Sinai, but this humiliated me more than what happened to me in Sinai.”
Abaker accused the inspector of “insensitivity to people and their culture, which sees food as a sacred thing that must be respected,” and said the raid was aimed at “embittering our lives so we’ll return to Africa ‘voluntarily.’”
Altogether, he said, more than 200 kilograms of meat, chicken and fish and over 500 prepared meals were destroyed.
The inspectors said they didn’t know where the meat came from and therefore feared for the diners’ health, Abaker wrote. “We told them: But this is the only place we’ve eaten all our meals for four years now, and none of us ever had stomach problems. Even whites eat here.”
The Health Ministry responded that inspectors had discovered “deplorable sanitary conditions, food stored under unsuitable conditions and temperatures, and food from unknown sources. In order to preserve the public’s health and that of the diners themselves, it was decided to destroy the food immediately. As part of the process of destroying the food, chemicals suitable to this purpose are used. It should be noted that this was a routine process of food destruction that is no different from other destructions of food/meat.”
Tel Aviv’s deputy city manager, Ruby Zelof, said the raids were carried out “to eradicate the undesirable phenomenon of businesses operating illegally, with sanitation and safety problems and illegal connections to electricity and water, and sales of alcoholic beverages without permits.”

Knesset Member Miri Regev — a member of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud Party — called the refugees “a cancer in our body” and Danny Danon — also a Likud Knesset Member — wrote on his Facebook page referring to the Africans as “infiltrators”. Interior Minister Eli Yishai said the African asylum seekers threaten “the Zionist dream,” adding, “Jobs will root them here.”

- Israeli woman has her photo taken with Africans, titles the Facebook album: “Late night tour of the Tel Aviv Safari”, captions the photo: “There are no signs forbidding taking pictures with the animals. There were no signs that forbid feeding, but we passed on that.”

At the age of seven, it’s safe to say that most kids want to be just like their parents – walk like them, act like them, work like them. For Diamond
On May 13, 1985, Philadelphia police dropped explosives containing C-4 on the roof of a house where members of the black liberation & social justice organization MOVE lived. Right before, police attacked the house with 10,000 rounds of ammunition in 90 minutes, knowing that children were inside. The house burned for 45 minutes before hoses were turned on.
Eleven people, including founder John Africa, five adults & five children were killed. The incident also destroyed 65 homes in the area, leaving 250 homeless. Witnesses reported police officers shooting at those trying to escape from the fire that ensued.
MOVE continues to advocate for prisoners’ rights & for the release of Mumia Abu-Jamal & nine MOVE members who were found guilty of the murder of a police officer in 1978.
An assembly focused on smoothing out racial tensions between black and Latino high school students has created controversy in Reseda.
So This is where I went to high school and is where my brother is currently attending.
Since 10 years ago there’s been a tradition of having Black Brown Love Day which is a day to bring both Hispanics and African Americans together to communicate in order to stop violence. You see in my area there was this constant hate between blacks and browns, there’s been fights, murders and separation. Things are much better now but back in the day at Cleveland there use to be a lot of fights between blacks and browns so the school came up with this day to help bring students get along better with each other.
Back when I was in high school I loved Black Brown Day because besides being fun and giving you an excuse to miss classes, I actually got to made new friends every time which for me it was great.
Well the assembly was yesterday, my brother was there and he said it was great. But now there’s danger of this wonderful movement disappearing because some white girl tried to get in, was denied entrance for obvious reasons and now the Caucasian parents are making a big deal about it.
In the link you can see the local news report about it and the parent that they interviewed actually has the audacity to get mad because according to her the message it sends is that and I quote “only black and brown children can cause trouble, are you saying that white and Asian cant?”
I’m just seriously irritated that just because this girl wanted to get in to an specifically noted “black and brown assembly” that happens every freaking year now the school is in trouble. Yes she got detention because she obviously wanted to ditch classes, and yet their basing it on racism. Now according to this parents they feel offended because the school is saying whites aren’t violent.
It’s not stated on the news report but as far as we know its only white parents who are complaining, the Asian community is not even bothered by the assembly.
WHYYYYY do white people have NO SENSE of propriety tho? THE WORLD IS NOT FOR YOUR TAKING!!!! SOME SHIT AINT FOR YOU!!!!! WHAT TEH FUCK???
Just think of it as preparation for when we grow up and y’all take over for them
This reply was really stupid. And black parents DO have a history of mentally and physically abusing their kids. Smdh.
It really kills my vibe to see black people say stupid shit about black people. There are families of all races that physically discipline their children. I don’t know how white people got a track record of time-outs, they’re the ones you always see on the news that took it too far. Drowning kids, pouring bleach in their food, and abusing them to the point that they want to go on murderous rampages, but of course black people get the savage reputation and dumb asses like you carry that bullshit on.

White people in a non Euro centric history class
they don’t know because they don’t get taught. this is why young white people are often racist
however, it doesn’t excuse adult white people from being racist. they have google. they can learn better, they just refuse to
they ARE being taught, just through a lens of whiteness. it’s “discovering” instead of “invading” and so on… the language is a huge problem. but either way, students are learning that white people showed up, nonwhite people were already there…. now those people are almost gone. it’s just a matter of if they can think critically and see the problem no matter how it’s phrased
It really doesn’t matter what white people think. Most of them will defend whiteness no matter what, it’s their ingrained, lifelong-conditioned self-interest and that’s what they’re gonna fight for regardless, so any energy given to explaining anything to white people or winning them over is a waste of time. All that matters is defeating whiteness, giving white people no choice in the matter. That’s how the world works and that’s the only way white supremacism will be dismantled. Some sensible white people will come along with what’s right, some won’t, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is people of color, getting organized and making things happen without white consent or interference, remaking the world order according to a renewed vision of a POC-centric world.
