Wait, there is racism in Europe!?!?!
 
2013-01-10 07:37:03 AM
I wasn't, but if I get to watch the police beat everyone else that's dinner AND a show!

"I can understand them asking me for ID and I even understand that there may have been a case to justify them hitting me in the first instance. But why did they continue beating me after I was handcuffed?"

Because they are police officers, that's why.

If the Greeks think they have it bad right now, it's really going to hurt when their tourism industry collapses

The tourist industry is all that remains, and you do this.

After several thousand years, civilisation can fall far indeed.

Greece is one goat shy of being a third world country, so not surprised they don't know how to conduct themselves.

/not sure why anyone would migrate there. Haven't they been reading the papers?

According to TFA, they think wrongly that it's an easy route into the rest of the EU...

"DammitIForgotMyLogin: If the Greeks think they have it bad right now, it's really going to hurt when their tourism industry collapses

Actually doesn't take many actions like this to have a very bad impact on tourism. Some years back, Jamaica had several similar incidents of tourists beaten by both locals and police. Enough people stopped going for enough time to kill many smaller businesses. Saint Croix had the same thing happen in the '70s. Tourism returned, but many small businesses were killed off before it did.

He didn't have his ID with him, which is the law. I don't know why he is biatching about treated like a criminal, because in his country only criminals are handcuffed, when he has clearly broken the law.

I'm leaving this "papers please" country to visit another "papers please" country in some months and I know what they can do if I don't carry my passport with me.

No but the lose of non-white tourism, and the loss of white tourism of people who don't want to support policies like this sure will.

My cousin studied abroad there 4 years ago and had no problem being half black. Wonder if he lucked otu or if this is just getting more common.

The Chinese are one of the fastest-growing sources of tourism dollars these days, so there's that.

Plenty of places in Europe where brutal, redneck, racist cops will hand you your azz for almost no reason. Greece, France, Southern Italy, Spain, Portugal. Happens all the time.
 
2013-01-10 08:44:49 AM
Sounds like the police brass said "Check the IDs of anyone you suspect of being here illegally." which, when filtered down though the ranks of cops became "Stop and be a dick to anyone who doesn't look like us." Not that it's at all justified. Great idea, guys- Tourism is a major part of your economy. So go destroy that, too!

Now, now. There are certainly plenty of assbackwards and derpworthy things to mock Texas about, but compared to the rest of the South and Southwest, aren't they actually one of the more sensible and hinged states when it comes to immigration policy?

IIRC, Rick Perry even got called out during last year's GOP debates for defending Texas' policy of providing scholarships to illegal immigrants' kids.

This.
Greece has frequently been voted China's #1 tourist destination.
Half a million east asians visit Greece each year.

Not surprising that Greece is getting racist and reactionary in their treatments. This is a country that voted a far-right Neo-Nazi party into Parliament in the last elections. A Neo-Nazi party complete with black-shirted thugs who would target non-Caucasians and beat them.

Could someone please 'shoop the guy on the left in the first picture into a frilly, pink tutu? There exists a jarring gap between my mind and reality.

You may wish to consult a tea-partier. They have some experience here.

Yeah, I was going strictly with the headline on that one: being unwhite and interacting with the police, not so much the immigration issue.

Fortunately, Arizona works on all levels.

You didn't notice the part of the article that said that the US state department has issued advice against visiting Greece?

hint: not every non-white person in the world is an illegal African immigrant
