A deprived community in Sweden? According to Fark progressives Sweden's "everything is free" welfare system makes a deprived community impossible.

"I cannot say there are not racist police officers," says Rissa. "If I say that, I am lying to you."

And lying is physically impossible for a Swede.

"It's not acceptable to throw stones at the police," says Jamil, a 25-year-old gardener of Iraqi origin, who is smoking and chatting to friends in the central square. "But it is understandable."

I like that distinction.  It seems usually that if people don't find something to be acceptable, they can't see it as understandable.  Maybe that's an American thing?

An example:

Q:  I find it unacceptable that Edward Snowden leaked classified documents, but I understand why he ...

A:  ... should hang as a traitor?

I've browsed a website called "STORMFRONT.ORG" and there are a LOT of Swedish members.

I think they don't like people who are pale and pink colored. They claim to be White Nationalists, but, honestly, they're pinkish color. I think Northern Chinese and Koreans are much more milky White.

However, Finnish people are pretty pale White - they look like they were drained of blood, plus their hair is very pale and light. Like vampires got to them and sucked out most of their blood and color.

It's amusing that the expectation is that the people actually know their local cops in Sweden.

Around here the less cops you interact with the better, much less know their names.

/got pulled over at midnight once by a black lady cop once for a burnout brake light. She seemed relieved that I wasn't a drunk leaving the nearby tittybar.

White folk in Togo are waaaay more likely to be landowners or businessmen than beat cops. If there's a white cop in Togo he's probably a hired out contractor for the president.

I get that emigration from the middle east into europe is a bit of a bugbear for white supremacists, but keep in mind that west african Moors used to own the Iberian peninsula.

Also, I like how a featureless gollywog character is doing the raping. There's no way you're a giant racist.

mrlewish: Not to be contrarian...  but how many white police officers in Togo?


None, probably. Europeans for the most part shipped out of their African colonies once they gained independence.

kingoomieiii: I get that emigration from the middle east into europe is a bit of a bugbear for white supremacists, but keep in mind that west african Moors used to own the Iberian peninsula.


And Europeans used to own pretty large bits of Africa. You don't see them wanting us back.

sendtodave: It seems usually that if people don't find something to be acceptable, they can't see it as understandable. Maybe that's an American thing?


Yes, yes it is an American thing. Just because you understand someone's reasoning and motivation for doing something doesn't mean that you think what they are doing is correct. I think this is because of the idea of "American Exceptionalism" wherein any hint of trying to understand the reasoning of people who don't like the US is seen as betrayal of the idea that the US is supposedly perfect and completely without blame. Example: Zomg, why try and understand Muslims? If they don't like us we'll simply bomb them.

See, that was a trick question to bait foreigners.

Kinda like when I loudly asked "In the future, women won't even need men at all, just their sperm" within earshot of my biatchy lesbian-for-college ex girlfriend.

Of course a dyke hates men, and of course people who aren't American hate us.

Definitely not the only black, female, police officer in the whole of Sweden. Maybe the only one, as she asserts, with two African parents.
 
2013-07-04 06:41:20 AM  
While it's not Togo, according this article from Feb, white Namibians have shown very little interest in joining the police force.

According to one police commander interviewed, he chalks it up to whites not getting preferential treatment, like they did pre-independence.

Absolutely true CSB moment:
Back in the 80s when I worked retail, I had a female black State Trooper that would occassionally come through my line. Being a female S.T. in Floriduh was rare enough, but to be a black female Trooper in racist North Florida? Oh, and did I mention that her name tag read: "Officer D.K. Head"?

She must've been the toughest biatch in all of the South! I made a mental note to never get pulled over by her, because it could only end badly.
 
2013-07-04 12:22:18 PM  
Hmmm... in hindsight, I rarely see black female cops.  In fact now that I think about it, I can't even recall ever seeing one.  Well, except that character in the Police Academy movies.

Weird.
 
2013-07-04 12:43:49 PM  
According to Wikipedia, less than 1% of the population of Togo is European.  There are likely no white officers.
 
2013-07-04 01:12:23 PM  
Well, there might be an albino officer who could be conside... nevermind.
