The Met, Racism and Islamophobia

The Metropolitan Police Service has a long, murky and varied history when it comes to institutionalized racism and police brutality. Victims of this state-sanctioned criminality tend to be members of the black, minority and ethnic communities. The response to this issue came to prominence in the 1950s – 80s in the form of both peaceful […]

Stop Treating the Working Class as Racists

At Resisting Hate we are very accustomed to discussing ‘isms’ and ‘phobias.’ Combating racism, homophobia and religious discrimination is a big part of what we do. But recently the prejudice we are seeing online has exposed a new tactic to divide our country and one which perhaps has the potential to do more damage than […]

Chronic Illness and American Healthcare Policy

As healthcare care costs climbed exponentially in the 1980’s, so did the cost of health insurance plans. As a result, employers began to enroll their employees in managed care plans and many Americans were forced to leave their traditional indemnity plans. With the advent of the health maintenance organization (HMO) there is now a financial […]

The Scale of Casual Racism

I’m here to fight the extremism, because it’s filthy, hateful and unbelievably evil in a way which I have never quite realised before (becoming involved with Resisting Hate). And yes, it’s immensely dangerous, it risks contagion and am I am totally committed. But thankfully support for far right extremism isn’t huge so we have every […]

Cambridge Analytica, A Beginner’s Guide

Cambridge Analytica Many people have been hearing the name Cambridge Analytica for the first time recently, following the revelation that they obtained the personal information of around 50 million people by abusing Facebook’s lax permissions system. I first heard of the company about a year ago, after reading an article by Carole Cadwalladr in the […]

The Resistance and Trump

Written by a guest writer for Resisting Hate It’s a tough balancing act to not allow ‘perfect’ to be the enemy of the ‘good’. It’s something I personally struggle with, but an approach that I like to apply when trying to think about solutions is to set up a sort of syllogism: Let’s say we […]

Defeating Trumpism with Faith

A faith based article written by a guest writer Past U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower once said: “A people that value privileges above principles, soon lose both.” It is true, indeed, that we have become a people seeking progression, however, we are a divided people; an occupied people. Notwithstanding Eisenhower’s comment and, apart from the fact […]

Britain First – Over and Out

Ever since the US President Donald Trump retweeted fake news posted by deputy leader Jayda Fransen, Britain First have been receiving a lot of media interest. They have also experienced a backlash from UK political figures including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. The media are giving them a lot of attention, but not for the wrong […]

When Did We Learn To Hate Like This?

Piece written by one of our members I was talking to my friends at Resisting Hate about contributing to their blog. I felt this piece that I wrote earlier in the year might be a good addition to the website. I read through it again today and it finally hit me (forgive my old brain) […]

Kristallnacht – Lest We Forget

The 9th and 10th November mark an anniversary of a dark event that needs to be remembered as it stands as a warning from history. On the 9th November 1938 Kristallnacht began – An attack on Jewish homes, businesses and people by the Sturmabteilung or “SA”, who were Hitler’s “Brownshirts”. This attack was in response […]

Impeach Trump the Nazi Supporter

Our American Admin talks about Trump Before the United States and other Allies went to Germany to fight Nazis and Hitler years passed and countless Jews were executed as the world watched from afar. When the Holocaust was over we vowed to never forget the senseless deaths of the millions of innocents murdered in the […]

The Exhaustion of Opposing Donald Trump

This is a personal post from the lady who represents the American branch of Resisting Hate. (The article, not the meme.) I have never been so involved in politics. Not when I was a lobbyist, not when I was a policy advisor to the Governor, not when I was on the Transition Team or any […]
