Turkey criticises Obama comments
What is genocide?
Article Two of the UN Convention on Genocide of December 1948 describes genocide as carrying out acts intended "to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group".
Were the killings systematic?
The dispute about whether it was genocide centres on the question of premeditation - the degree to which the killings were orchestrated
UK Gurkha decision sparks anger
The British government has said it will allow 4,300 more Gurkha veterans to settle in the country, changing immigration restrictions on the Nepalese soldiers.
But advocates for the soldiers say the criteria for eligibility introduced by the government means only 100 Gurkhas would actually qualify.
The announcement has sparked outrage from campaigners, who have demanded all 36,000 Gurkhas who served with the British army before 1997 be allowed to live permanently in the UK.
Confederate flag draws tears, cheers in TampaBy Jessica Vander Velde, Times Staff Writer

The flag, first raised in June, has divided some members of the community. Many say it stands for slavery and racism, and several Hillsborough County commissioners suggested a compromise. Maybe the Sons of Confederate Veterans could fly an American flag and on special occasions raise the Confederate flag, they said.
The flag isn't about racism, said Robert Wilson, 46, of St. Johns. He said he's sad to see what certain groups, including the Ku Klux Klan, have made it. "We're not here to hate on people," he said. "We're all Americans, and we're equal."
"They did not die for nothing, because we'll never forget them," she said.
A Family Divided by 2 Words, Legal and Illegal
By DAVID GONZALEZ
Published: April 25, 2009
These four — who let a reporter and a photographer trail them only if they were not identified, for fear of being deported — are part of a growing group of what are often called mixed-status families. Nearly 2.3 million undocumented families, about three-quarters of those who are here illegally, have at least one child who is a United States citizen, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. Nearly 400,000 of them have both citizen and noncitizen children.
It is nearly impossible for an illegal immigrant child to become a legal resident without going back to the native country, then waiting a requisite 10 years to apply.
No chance to say goodbye before deportation
Well-wishers gathered at airport heartbroken, as deported mom and daughter fly to S. Korea

Kim was deported to Seoul, South Korea, late last night after losing her refugee appeal before the Immigration and Refugee Board. She elected to take her Toronto-born daughter with her..
Kim had come to Canada on a visitor's visa in 2000. She had been working in a dry cleaner's shop in the Davenport neighbourhood where Eugene was a Grade 2 student at Dovercourt Jr. Public School
The president of the Canadian branch of Defence for Children International confirmed to the Star yesterday there was nothing more that could be done to keep the Kims in Canada.
"We had to establish if there was a risk of serious harm to the child and we haven't been able to do that, so there are not sufficient reasons to overturn a deportation order," said Agnes Samler. "The only thing we might have been able to do is an appeal on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, but we have not had a lot of success under the current system."
Yesterday, though, Foley said she tried to stress to Eugene that she and her mother would be on to new adventures back in South Korea, where the little girl has never lived. Kim's parents and a brother live about 1 1/2 hours south of Seoul.
"They need to be together," said Foley. "If that means they have to be together in Korea, then that's the way it needs to be."
Bully boss has poisoned the work environment for employees
Posted By TED MOURADIAN
25 Apr 2009
Dear Ted:I am dealing with a boss at work who has been bullying me for more than two years. I have filed grievances at work which are going to arbitration. Presently, I am off on a stress leave for two weeks and am wondering what other actions I can follow other than union grievances. We have a workplace harassment policy, but it is on certain grounds (i. e. colour, race etc.) that don't fall under bullying and harassment. This boss has poisoned my work environment and I am not alone. She has a past history but people end up quitting and I am not prepared to do that. What can I do? Please help me! Thank you.
Answer:What you are saying is a dilemma that a lot of employees are in. There are harassment policies that deal with human rights, such as race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, but these policies don't seem to cover bullying and psychological harassment. Some employers are not up to speed yet with how the laws are changing and the fact that it is the employer's responsibility to make sure that your workplace is harassment free.
Five fired black workers sue PharMerica
The African immigrants charge they were mistreated and harassed by bosses and co-workers.
By TREVOR MAXWELL, Staff Writer
April 24, 2000
the supervisor allegedly told the plaintiffs they were not allowed breaks after 4:30 p.m., which the plaintiffs later learned was a violation of labor laws. The men said the supervisor told them, "This isn't a mosque," and would not allow them to pray during breaks.
The supervisor and other employees allegedly insulted the plaintiffs and repeatedly used slurs.
"They were called (the n-word), lazy, black sheep, barbarians, filthy, irresponsible, dumb, dirty, little boys and stupid," Webbert wrote in the complaint.
Two white female co-workers, Webbert wrote, told the supervisor they did not want to work closing shift because "they were afraid the plaintiffs would 'jump' them and 'rape' them in the parking lot."
Two other white female co-workers felt the men were being harassed,...so they reported their concerns on a PharMerica telephone hotline. The supervisor allegedly responded by telling the women they would be fired if they spoke again with the men.
On July 30, 2007, Haji said he was ordered by his supervisor to work directly across from the two women who had expressed fear of attack by the men. Haji told the supervisor and regional manager that he didn't feel comfortable at the work station. He claims he was immediately fired and escorted out of the building.
The regional manager then allegedly came back inside and told the four other plaintiffs – plus another black man who worked as a technician but who is not a party in the lawsuit – that they were all fired.
"It's very unusual that it would be so blatant, for the manager to say, 'Everyone the same color as you is out of here,' " Webbert said. "It cries out for the legal system to send a signal."

Bosses do read blogs
Howard Levitt, Financial Post
Published: Wednesday, April 22, 2009魚拓
After blogging about her sex life, Jessica Cutler was fired from her job as a U. S. Senator's aide and then ended up with a book deal
Most people blog the way they speak, moaning about perceived petty injustices. "I should have been promoted instead of Nancy." "Christina is lazy and I end up doing her work" "My boss shouldn't have his job." But blogging is not analagous to grumbling to your partner at home. A blog, like everything online, is both permanent and public.
Jessica Clarke didn't think about that, when she blogged about her job as a personal caregiver at a home for the aged. She complained about her "lazy, slow" co-workers, described her employer's new residential facility as "a hole" and even ridiculed a resident with Parkinson's disease. She also referred to her managers as "stupid f---ing a--holes" who kept making mistakes. After reading the blog, Ms. Clarke's managers decided to fire her. Her union fought her dimissal and lost.
Many white collar employees make the same mistake. One woman in an Alberta government office wrote that "imbeciles and idiot savants (no offense to them) were running the ship". She described her co-workers as "stupid, cheap or stuck-up." When a taxpayer complained about her to the provincial Ombudsperson, she blogged that the woman had "ratted her out." She called one of her bosses the "Lunatic in Charge" and another a "power-hungry wench." When her employer perused her blog, she was fired. She and her union also lost her suit.
When an employee is rude and insubordinate to a manager, continued employment can be untenable, which is why blogging about your workplace is often cause for discharge
However, if a blog does not relate to work, an employee has considerable leeway. One B. C. warehouse worker glorified Nazism and Hitler on his blog and described fantasies of violent attacks. Horrified, his employer fired him. But his hatred wasn't directed toward his employer or co-workers. As a result, there was no legal cause to fire him and he was reinstated at arbitration.
The courts deem Internet libel to be more serious than other forms of libel because of its permanent and international circulation, so it follows that disparaging comments about an employer also will be treated more seriously than comments with limited coverage. Employers can protect themselves by including rules about blogs in their Internet policies.
When an employer discovers such blogs it should: - Print the blog to preserve the evidence; - Consider whether anything the employer, the workplace or the employees are adversely affected; - Consult with counsel to determine whether the employee can be justifiably disciplined or fired.
Hate crime rises in Wales as economic hardship bites
Apr 26 2009 by David James, Wales On Sunday 魚拓
Ethnic minorities, gay people, faith groups and even the disabled have been reporting far more incidents of violence, verbal abuse and criminal damage over the past year.
Hate crime is described by the Home Office as any attack motivated by an offenders’ hatred of the victim’s race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
Resentment in economically struggling white, working class neighbourhoods can fuel hate crime, according to criminologist Georgios Antonopoulos.
The academic said research shows that the shame they feel can be transformed into rage. And the present “constant discussion on the financial crisis” could be fuelling these feelings
Yet Mr Kidwai said he believed community relations in Wales were better than in other parts of the UK.
He added: “I personally feel from what I gather from my counterparts in England and Scotland is that things are much worse. We are lucky in Wales, inter community relations are better.”
All-white jury chosen in Pa. hate crime trial
By MICHAEL RUBINKAM – 3 days ago
POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — An all-white jury was seated Wednesday in the trial of two northeastern Pennsylvania teenagers charged in the fatal beating of an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
Schuylkill County prosecutors allege the attack on Luis Ramirez, 25, was racially motivated. Witnesses have said the victim was sucker-punched and kicked in the head during a late-night, epithet-filled melee.
Prosecutors have charged Brandon Piekarsky, 17, of Shenandoah, with third-degree murder. He and Derrick Donchak, 19, also of Shenandoah, were charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and ethnic intimidation.

South Belfast urged: 'Unite against hate crime' 魚拓
POLITICIANS and community leaders in south Belfast have been urged by Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey to unite in support of foreign nationals who live in the area in the wake of an upsurge of hate crimes. “Political and community representatives have a duty to make it clear that racism has no place in this community,” said Maskey.
The South Belfast MLA was speaking after an attack by a racist mob from the loyalist Village area of south Belfast last Thursday. Five people, including four from Hungary, were in a house on Donegall Road when a gang attacked the property.
The women in the house barricaded themselves in behind a kitchen table after a mob broke windows and tried to smash their way through the front door. The mob shouted abuse and threatened to kill the residents if they didn’t leave the area.
“We were crying and screaming and they were yelling they were going to kill us” said one woman. “It was terrible. None of us can go back to Donegall Road.”
Last month, the homes of Eastern European workers and their families were targeted by a racist mob in south Belfast. The attacks took place after loyalists targeted homes following an unrelated confrontation between rival soccer fans from Poland and those supporting the local team during a European qualifying match at Belfast’s Windsor Park.
Over 40 foreign nationals were forced to flee from their homes. Slovenian, Hungarian, Lithuanian and Polish families were attacked as a racist gang rampaged through the area.
Windows were smashed, front doors kicked in and homes were pelted with stones and bricks. The assailants yelled abuse, including death threats.
Eastern European families have also been targeted by racists in Ballymena.
A house where a group of Polish people were staying was attacked on Easter Monday. The attack took place just before 2pm when stones were thrown, smashing six windows in the house.
“There have been attempts to link these attacks to the trouble before and after the Poland v Northern Ireland soccer match,” Alex Maskey said. “This is a smokescreen being used by the narrow-minded thugs who engage in racist attacks.
“The whole Polish community and the wider community of foreign nationals cannot be held responsible for the actions of a small minority of football hooligans.
“Let us be clear: these types of racist incidents were taking place for years before this soccer game. They were wrong then and they are wrong now,” said the Sinn Féin Assembly member.
This is not the first time loyalists in south Belfast have engaged in racist attacks.
In 2004, a series of racist incidents led to the formation of a Roundtable on Racism.
A Romanian family and two Chinese families were forced to flee. People from the 26 Counties were also targeted
The move followed repeated attacks on the Village and Donegall Road area picking out Asian and Chinese families. In one incident, a Pakistani family were forced to leave only hours after moving into the neighbourhood.
Other homes were subjected to arson attacks, resulting in a Romanian family and two Chinese families being forced to flee. People from the 26 Counties were also targeted.
Racist slogans were painted on walls and loyalists held a mass rally in an attempt to intimidate people into leaving the area. But Sinn Féin’s Alex Maskey has pointed out that such actions are not supported by the majority of local people.
“There have been increasing reports of racist attacks and intimidation directed at foreign nationals. Within south Belfast, much of the media reports have focused on the Village area,” said Maskey.
“I have spoken to a number of people from the Village area and it is clear that such racist attacks and attitudes do not have the support of the majority of people in this area. Those responsible for racist intimidation are a very small minority, a minority whose actions are abhorred by the local community,” said Maskey.
