Aryanization compared to Affirmative actionEdit

Zezen[1] and GizzyCatBella[2] are comparing the anti-racist Affirmative action policy to the Nazi policy of Aryanization. This is deplorable, and Wikipedia should stop this!

Why is there no racism in Ethiopia?Edit

Please see the discussion at Talk:Ethnic_discrimination_in_Ethiopia#NPOV_tag_due_to_whitewashing_to_remove_references_to_racism Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:13, 2 July 2021 (UTC)

I am sure there is plenty of racism in Ethiopia. This article however, describes conflicts between ethnicities, not races. We have gone over this before, and would be happy to go over it again. Also, just because your poorly-conceived RM failed, please refrain from vandalizing the article resentfully with tags. Walrasiad (talk) 00:17, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

Missing white woman syndrome needs an urgent fixEdit

If the article Missing white woman syndrome is viewed with Google Chrome for Android on the Mi Mix 2S, the text in the row of Shoshana Johnson, which is a woman of color, is significantly smaller than the white Lori Piestewa. Ironically that article is exactly about this kind of discrimination. You can see the screenshot here. I did not find any way to fix this with CSS, so it seems that Google Chrome’s AI to adjust font-sizes can be blamed here. As it is already known that Google develops racist AIs we urgently have to fix that. --2A02:908:1464:B00:CDDF:E777:AF29:F629 (talk) 11:40, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Medical RacismEdit

FAR for Ketuanan MelayuEdit

I have nominated Ketuanan Melayu for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Z1720 (talk) 16:01, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

Join us! Become part of the Wikimedia Human Rights Interest Group. :)Edit

Valued members of the WikiProject Discrimination!

Thank you for the wonderful work you all have been doing in regards to coverage of Discrimination topics on Wikipedia. We are reaching out on behalf of the newly formed Human Rights Team(HRT) at the Foundation. We are currently in the process of forming a Human Rights Interest Group (HRIG) that aims to listen to and address the various human rights concerns and challenges pertaining to the Movement, its members and the readers around the world interested in the content you produce. The HRIG is a cross-wiki, cross-cultural and cross-language initiative aiming to share knowledge regarding human rights challenges, ideas, movements and actors (both historical and current) from around the globe. With this in mind, we are reaching out to you to start a dialogue, present our ideas, hear your feedback and perhaps find some motivated Wikimedians to turn this is a successful initiative. Should this be of interest to you, please feel free to reply here or reach out to us at talktohumanrights We very much much look forward to hearing from you. :) -–KUrban (WMF) (talk) 13:17, 1 February 2022 (UTC)


There seems to be a certain lack of consensus at Misandry. So I am asking interested editors at all related wikiprojects if they would care to help in some consensus building. Though editors should be aware that this topic can be divisive. Talpedia (talk) 16:49, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

New stub Everything's Gonna Be All White createdEdit

I've created a new stub called Everything's Gonna Be All White. I've added 9 references to the article and have added the infobox as well as the overview, cast, episodes and reception sections, but the article still needs some work like expanding and the episode list reformatted to the correct format. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 19:29, 23 April 2022 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.

Help with new page The "Mighty Girl" Effect?Edit
