Harcèlement en ligne: 41% des Américains en seraient victimes

Le harcèlement en ligne est un phénomène qu'on déplore un peu partout. Le Pew Research Center étoffe ici nos perceptions.

 "A new, nationally representative Pew Research Center survey of 4,248 U.S. adults finds that 41% of Americans have been personally subjected to harassing behavior online, and an even larger share (66%) has witnessed these behaviors directed at others. In some cases, these experiences are limited to behaviors that can be ignored or shrugged off as a nuisance of online life, such as offensive name-calling or efforts to embarrass someone. But nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) have been subjected to particularly severe forms of harassment online, such as physical threats, harassment over a sustained period, sexual harassment or stalking."

Les Musulmans des États-Unis croient toujours au rêve américain (Pew Research Center)

Intéressants ces résultats du Pew Research Center dans une période marquée par des tensions. Même s'ils sont confrontés à des difficultés les Musulmans gardent espoir.

 "At the same time, however, Muslim Americans express a persistent streak of optimism and positive feelings. Overwhelmingly, they say they are proud to be Americans, believe that hard work generally brings success in this country and are satisfied with the way things are going in their own lives – even if they are not satisfied with the direction of the country as a whole."

General John “Black Jack" Pershing: Trump se trompe

Donald Trump a référé au célèbre général dernièrement, le citant en exemple dans sa lutte au terrorisme. Non seulement l'histoire racontée par le Président américain ne tenait pas la route, mais l'auteur défend ici l'idée que le général n'aurait jamais présenté l'insurrection aux Philippines comme du terrorisme.

 "But by the standards of his age, Pershing was fairly enlightened. When he fought the Moros at what has gone down in history as the Battle of Bud Bagsak (in June of 1913), Pershing proved adept at implementing tactics that would dampen Philippine (and U.S.) casualties: He recruited local leaders to denounce the uprising, attempted to negotiate a political agreement with the rebels, then waited them out (which siphoned off their strength) before attacking. Despite this, Bud Bagsak resulted in the deaths of approximately 500 Moro tribesmen, and 13 Americans. “The fighting was the fiercest I have ever seen,” he later wrote. “They [the tribesmen] are absolutely fearless, and once committed to combat they count death as a mere incident.”
