The hated white man
By Priit Pullerits

We Estonians have now been warned. Black British journalist, Abdul Turay, imputed in Tuesday's Postimees that we treat black people badly and threatened that if Russia attacked Narva, the USA won't undertake to do something about it, because as Turay imagined President Barack Obama's wife Michelle would then say to her husband.


“Ah Estonia. Isn't that the little, small-minded, white country, to hell with them.”


How come we get this angry, gleeful and belligerent tone addressed at the Estonian land and the Estonian people. It probably stems from Turay's disappointment that we don't treat him or his racial compatriots with sufficient dignity and rights.


But it can't be claimed somehow that Turay's racial compatriots over in America, (where the President-elect presumably will help stop racism), have attitudes towards white people that are tolerant and friendly. Experience says the opposite is true.


One time whilst heading out, I stopped my car in Phoenix, Arizona city centre, to take a picture in front of the State Congress Building. I had scarcely taken my camera out when a threatening-looking band of black people began to assembly. I rapidly made tracks.


Another time in New York I asked a black person if he would let me take a picture with him in the shot. He pushed into his black leather coat's side lapel and exposed a cane from under it. I got the jest and backed off.


Some years back in Broadway, New York, I fell victim to a black blackmailer. He provoked a clash with me. He dropped a bottle in a paper bag and pressured me with his body language which didn't leave room for argument that I have to reward the misfortune.


In the Capitol, Washington, I was passing one time into a shop. In the front hanging about were some black youths. They can't have been more than a couples of steps away, I listened to their abhorrent spite.


In Washington's suburb, Bethesda, a black person ensnared me one evening. His car stopped next to my car and he asked if I could tow him along for a minute as his legs were too weak (to push it). He said he lived in a nearby room. Bethesda is an expensive part of town to be driving a jalopy. This dilapidated man, all things being equal, couldn't somehow live there. It was actually this feeling that saved me from falling victim to this black man.


White people must take care where to go in America. There are parts of cities such a South Central, Los Angeles, Anacostia, Washington or Opa-Locka, Miami, where you can't, for safety's sake, stick your nose. Unfortunately I don't know any parts of towns (in America) where black people can not safely go about their business.


In the same way you can't imagine that if John McCain had been elected president, someone would threaten Turay's racial compatriots :“Ah Africa, isn't that the big war-torn black continent, to hell with them.”

Black men, Estonian women: the truth By Abdul Turay Published Postimees 11 November 2009 Well that got your attention; the headline I mean. Any story on this subject, the technical term is miscegenation, is bound to get punters. The yellow media, women's magazines and reality TV shows are obsessed with the subject. Not a month goes by without some publication writing about it. Anne and Style, for example, recently ran a long feature about mixed couples. Most of these stories are muddle-headed and wrong. There's paranoia in this country that there is an army of dark-skinned men form Turkey, the tropics, some place south, who are going to make off with the nation's women. It's never going to happen. I'll explain why in a minute. Seriously, I think there are more important things to think about and worry about. I worry about feeding my family. I worry about other people being able to feed their families, so I write about politics and economics. But the p
Paradise Lost By Abdul Turay 11 August 2009 Finally the Estonian immigration authorities have done something of which they can be proud . They are getting rid of a very nasty man. Anyone who follows current affairs in Estonia may  vaguely have heard of Craig Cobb, a bearded, 57 year old, extreme right-wing American who for the past few years has made Estonia his home. He hoped to make this country the centre for his one man campaign to promote so-called white nationalism. Tallinn is host to Cobb's Podblanc site, where mostly Russian skinhead thugs post videos of themselves committing acts of brutal violence against men, women, and even small children from ethnic minorities in Russia. Those of us who have been coming to Estonia for some years, either as visitors, investors, or as more permanent guests, have been sadden to see some of the more unsavoury characters from our part of the world show up here. Cobb is of course the worse example of this phenomenon. It&
A note for New Tallinners Russian Translation below.  Dear New Tallinners Whether you are here for work or study; welcome to Tallinn, I hope that you have a successful, productive and fun time in our beautiful city. Tallinn has come a long way in the last 20 years. It is hard to believe this city was once grey and Soviet. It can be bewildering at times being in a new city in a new country, when all the information you need is in another language. Did you know that you can help to make it better? Did you know you have access to legal services? What do you know about the sports, leisure and cultural activities going on in Tallinn? The local elections for the City council take place this October 15. Did you know that you can vote?   Everybody registered to live in Tallinn can vote? Voting will give you say in how the city is run? It gives you power? I hope to serve you as your local candidate. How someone like me ended up in Estonian politics, is too long a story to g
