Earlier today I had planned to write a blog post about Jörg Haider and his successor in the BZÖ (“Bündnis für die Zukunft Österreichs” or “Federation for the Future of Austria), but I got sidetracked along the way. Now, instead I’ve found this article about a black American teacher at Vienna’s International School who was brutally attacked by the police as he was leaving a tram.
Apparently they mistook him for a drug dealer. We are left to ask ourselves whether they were under the impression that:
- all blacks look alike, or
- all blacks deal drugs
Probably both of the above.
It’ll be interesting to see whether or not the police ‘man-up’ and take responsibility for their mistake.
Maybe this article is about (people like) Jörg Haider after all?!?!
