Short and "to the point" answer: Those numbers are just identifiers for various school district organization plans. The digits refer to the number of years a student spends in each "section" of a schooling system. The general notation is A-B-C, where "A" is the number of years in primary school (elementary school), "B" ...

In the years before the Kennedy administration, visiting African dignitaries, mostly from Liberia and Ethiopia, could hope for (but not expect) the red carpet to be rolled out / meet a senior government official up to and including the president. However, when travelling around / visiting places, most could expect to be exposed to segregation and other ...

What is a Nordic, Aryan or Slav anyway? The most outstanding thing to observe here is of course to assume that decidedly irrational racism can provide an objective, reliable and valid consistency that one would expect from a scientific concept. It is somehow a lot like accusing racists of being 'not racist enough'? Racism always has to bend observable ...

Yes, he did As @LangLangC wrote in a comment, the relevant document is available at the Austrian State Archive (Nottendorfer Gasse 2, 1030 Wien) under the number ÖStA AVA MdI Präs. 19/3. Zl. 17256/15. The staff will give you a folder, slightly bigger than A4 that looks like this: (click images for higher resolution) Inside this folder there are multiple ...

Short answer: The terminology being used here, is I believe, incorrect. The true Neo-Nazis have not changed their view on Slavic people. What you are observing is the attitude of Neo-Fascists among each other. or some combination of Authoritarian Nationalist and even a form of White supremacy Fascism evolved during the 19th century and became known ...

Yes, English-speaking white South Africans on the whole were nearly as racist as the Afrikaners and many supported apartheid, even if they were less vocal about it. For his article "Towards Darkness and Death: Racial Demonology in South Africa" (1988), Pierre Hugo conducted a survey to measure white attitudes toward the prospect of black-majority ...

I've seen no clear evidence either way, but the following anecdote from Nathan Bedford Forrest: A Biography by Jack Hurst may be of interest. At a dinner during the war, to a society woman who inquired why his hair had turned gray while his beard remained dark, he replied that it was possibly because he tended to work his brains more than his jaws.

The overall meaning of the sign is not certain, but it is probably not a direct reference to racial integration. What is clear is that "6-3-3" is a common term for the structure of 6 levels of elementary education, followed by 3 levels of junior high and 3 levels of senior high. I see no other possible way to interpret this. It is very likely that ...

I think it unlikely that you'll find the answer you are looking for, at least as the question is currently framed. In a society where racist views are unchallenged (widely held or not), you are unlikely to find public opinion data to "measure" this. And without extensive polling at frequent intervals and with some geographic granularity, I'm not sure how you ...

I blame Tacitus In his text Germania (published circa 98 AD) Tacitus gives a lengthy description of Germany and German tribes. While he does not describe them as "superior" -- in places he seems to use them as a foil to contrast supposed German virtues with what he sees as the flaws of the Roman character (adultery vs marital fidelity for example)....

I'll make two preliminary points before addressing the question directly. First, there isn't anything terribly unique about Irish-Americans as compared to white ethnics in general, and so my answer will be on that level applicable to Jews, Italians, etc. Second, I think it is easy to answer this question if we approach economic class and social status (of ...

The sign refers to the fact that the integration fight intersected with another big debate at the time: the minimum amount of compulsory schooling. Today's rules are more stringent, but at the time, the debate for the minimum compulsory schooling was between eight years and nine years. The term 6-3-3 referred to the "old" formula of six years of ...

A little of both. In economics, there are two effects when new "money" enters the picture: The income effect and the substitution effect. The income effect is just that; if you receive income from government programs, that income makes you richer and alleviates poverty. The substitution effect is more subtle: If you receive income from the government, ...
