RfC: Antisemitism in the UK Labour PartyEdit


Hello, can someone check the Intersectionality page? The "Criticism" section was full of non notable and irrelevant content. Rupert Loup (talk) 12:10, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello again, there is currently an RfC in Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard#Intersectionality, comments are appreciated. Rupert Loup (talk) 10:57, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Consent search and Terry stop (stop and frisk)Edit

Hello, I would like to lobby your WikiProject to add Consent search and Stop and frisk (which redirects to Terry stop, the technical term) to your project. Both are major drivers in racial profiling and police abuse. A good example is in the following LA Times story: "L.A. County deputies stopped thousands of innocent Latinos on the 5 Freeway in hopes of their next drug bust".[1] Other examples are: Stop-and-frisk in New York City and Ferguson unrest (caused by a terry stop, community exploded because of heavy-handed use of terry stops and consent searches). Also, both pages need work, so please come by and help out. Thanks! Seahawk01 (talk) 09:11, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Moose LodgeEdit

There is an effort to whitewash the racist history of the Loyal Order of Moose. — BillHPike (talk, contribs) 02:15, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Request for comment at Jackie WalkerEdit

Stop-and-frisk in New York CityEdit

Hello everyone, I'd like to get Stop-and-frisk in New York City (talk) up to WP:GOOD standards over the next few weeks. This is an especially important topic as using stop-and-frisk in cities like Chicago have been discussed in the news recently. So, if you have the time, please come by and help out. Thanks!

WikiJournal of Humanities published first articleEdit

The WikiJournal of Humanities is a free, peer reviewed academic journal which aims to provide a new mechanism for ensuring the accuracy of Wikipedia's humanities, arts and social sciences content. We started it as a way of bridging the Wikipedia-academia gap. It is also part of a WikiJournal User Group along with Wiki.J.Med and Wiki.J.Sci. The journal is still starting out and not yet well known, so we are advertising ourselves to WikiProjects that might be interested.


  • Invite submissions from non-wikipedians
  • Coordinate the organisation of external academic peer review
  • Format accepted articles
  • Promote the journal


If you want to know more, please see this recent interview with some WikiJournal editors, the journal's About page, or check out a comparison of similar initiatives. If you're interested, please come and discuss the project on the journal's talk page, or the general discussion page for the WikiJournal User group.

As an illustrative example, Wiki.J.Hum published its first article this month!

I added Quotaism to this project as it appears relevant but also low quality and possibly overlapping with articles such as affirmative action. If this was inappropriate please feel free to remove the project. MegaSloth (talk) 09:56, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

white pride articleEdit

Hi, I posted on the talk page over there, this article is in dire need of some positivity.

Surely the use of 2 simple words, white and pride, by bad actors cannot make the two words together racist and equivalent to "white power" for example can it? Like wikipedia in general expects good faith, I think the concept of white pride deserves a good faith article, expressing a white person being proud of their heritage, without being presented as explicitly racist.

the sources at least for the introduction are biased and questionable or unavailable, and the rest is 3 similar reading sections all talking about how racist white people are, or how some hate groups are hateful thus rendering white people unable to express pride. I dont see why the concept of white pride cannot be expressed in the same fashion as pride of any other color or creed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:41, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

This is being discussed pretty much to death on the article talk page, to the point where we've gone into WP:NOTAFORUM territory - so it will soon have to stop. The IP editor doesn't seem to want to accept the reality that "white pride" isn't a simple unloaded and neutral term, it's being deliberately promulgated by white supremacists, white separatists and white nationalists to provide cover for their loathsome ideologies. Folks can come over to the discussion if they want, but I doubt it's going to do any good: when it comes to "white pride", the IP sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:04, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
My two cents on the matter is that the article is racist against white people, period. Other groups can have their pride groups fine, but whites? Their article is littered with decade-old pictures of thuggish-looking monster skinheads. However this article is backed up by reliable sources, so I think the bigger discussion should be about the sources themselves. Is it appropriate to demonize an ethnic group and justify it through hateful reliable sources? Because that's what it does. If one hundred reliable sources suddenly in unison say the earth is flat, should the earth Wikipedia article suddenly go along with what they say? The reliable sources have an innate bias (racism against whites) and suddenly their opinion becomes crystallized and set in stone as fact on Wikipedia.

Looking for helpEdit


I was looking for some small help. I created a new article en:Kithaab-a play about women rights issues- which has been copy edited and is ready for translation in various languages. Looking for your possible help in translating the article en:Kithaab to your language. If you are unable to spare time yourself then may be you like to refer the same to some other translator.

Thanking you , with warm regards

Origins of the word "discrimination".Edit

As it had been told here:

I believe people of the world are mislead by improper and blind usage of word discrimination. Let's try to unwind the roots of this word!

if CRIME is deed.

and CRIMINAL - is doer.

then IN-CRIMINATE - is to accuse of crime.

and then DIS-CRIMINATE - is to drop charges of crime.

IN and DIS are opposite prefixes, prefixes with opposite meaning.

And, I still don't understand why people remove meaningful contributions, without meaningful argumentation.

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Suidlanders discussion could use more inputEdit

If anyone would like to weigh in on whether a group should be called racist, here is an ongoing discussion. -Furicorn (talk) 18:04, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Bigoted comments in Talk sectionsEdit

Sorry if I'm not asking this in the right place, but I'm not sure how this works. I just saw a minor but decidedly antisemitic remark at the bottom of the talk section of the Cliff Robertson article (someone wrote, "Typical Hollywood Jewish producers!") and I was wondering what the Wikipedia policy is about dealing with racist, antisemitic, and other hate speech-type comments in the Talk sections. Do you have a procedure for removing them, or do you allow them in the spirit of free speech? Embram (talk) 14:33, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

I went ahead and deleted it. WanderingWanda (talk) 16:36, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Okay, if that's the accepted procedure. I did not know deleting someone's comment in a "Talk" section was allowed. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of Wikipedia rules and I didn't want to get on Wikipedia's Sheiße list. Embram (talk) 17:06, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Deleting talk page comments is usually best avoided but in this case the post was clearly harmful with no value to the encyclopedia. WP:TPO says that it is OK to cautiously remove harmful posts, including personal attacks, trolling, and vandalism. WanderingWanda (talk) 17:53, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Good to know. Thank you! Embram (talk) 23:13, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
