This is a book that you can borrow from your local library or buy from a number of local book retailers- sure not signed but isn’t it the contents that offend?
Not in this case, no.
I don't believe any books should be banned or that ownership of them implies agreement with all ideas in them. Still, Dotcom's copy of Mein Kampf is really a piece of memorabilia that just happens to be a book. Whether you then think collecting WW2 artefacts in general or Nazi ones in particular is problematic is a different question.
Malmö looks like an extreme case , a city that is 41% 1st or 2nd gen immigrants , mostly unskilled.
Hey! We got Zlatan Ibrahimović from there...
For example, newcomers to Sweden have a 520% higher incarceration rate than native Swedes.
If you are going to quote from that article you could at least read all of it.
Yes, it says that:
Foreigners are thus 6.2 times as likely to be incarcerated than Swedes, or 520% higher incarceration rate.
The section before explains that foreigners are not synonymous with immigrants.
Sweden refuses to report the incarceration rate of immigrants. They do however report the incarceration rate of foreign citizens (people who don't have Swedish passports, not dual citizens). Immigrants who have gotten Swedish citizenship (56% of the foreign born 2008) will be counted as Swedes.
But I have a feeling you know all this already.
Image I’ve created clearly illustrates...
If you look closely you should be able to make out the p-lab on Buxton St before it exploded.
So why, as far as I can tell, hasn’t this gotten any mainstream media attention at all?
I’m guessing because it’s genre fiction. It doesn’t belong in the nice drawing rooms of literary fiction. (Not my own opinion I’ll add). And while there may occasionally be a story on Eleanor Catton in mainstream media it’s only because she won the 2013 Writers’ World Cup or something.
starting a Twitter outrage
isn't that the point of twitter?
where Tyler verbally blasted an activist
So not just jumping on roofs - VERBAL BLASTING too.
Phew, I feel safer now.
