Who Would Want To Be A White Person In The UK These Days When Being White = Being Racist?

Who Would Want To Be A White Person In The UK These Days When Being White = Being Racist?

Editor writes…

Five years ago, the following tweet was published by a Cambridge student:  “All white people are racist. White middle class, white working class, white men, white women, white gays, white children, they can ALL geddit.”   

Why live in a country that is full of racists?  Why do so many people from non-white nations pay thousands of pounds to criminal gangsters to sneak into the UK illegally?  What IS the attraction?  I don’t get it…

I will say, though, I’m surprised that Lady Hussey didn’t have more sense than to ask Ngozi Fulani about her family’s origins.  Not so long ago, in conversation with a Nigerian friend of mine, I told her (and she said she totally understood) that I would – by instinct these days – never ask any person who is not white, anything about their background. Never. And that despite the fact that during the almost 20 years that I lived in England, I didn’t give a second thought to the matter when people, hearing my accent, asked me whereabouts in Scotland I originated, nor did I scream “racism” when a gentleman in America asked me if I came from Ireland.  Shock horror!  You mean to suggest that I’m not American! 

As I’ve said before, many times, on this blog, I cannot comprehend racism.  I just do not understand it at all.  But I have to be honest and say that I do sympathise with the friend who once argued that the ongoing attacks on white people just because they’re white “…is enough to make someone racist.”  He had a point, but he knew that no Catholic could possibly adhere to racist beliefs and behaviour and still consider themselves to be Catholic.

Let’s pray, then, to all the great black canonised saints in Heaven, for their intercession to end the divisive and unChristian mentality that causes this particular brand of hatred to take root in hearts and souls.  To one of my own favourites, the lovely mixed-race saint, Martin de Porres, I pray – intercede for us, please and thank you!

    I’ve been following this story since the start and it’s ludicrous beyond words to think that the royal family have forced Lady Hussey to resign over something so stupid. This article from Spiked is saying what I’d like to say, i.e. it is a sign of interest, curiosity, to ask someone where they are “really” from.

    This wokery nonsense is making it impossible to claim we are a nation where free speech is valued. It’s just not true, it’s not true for white people now, that is for sure. White people are being made to feel guilty about slavery which is ridiculous, and now that the royal family are caving into the woke bullying, where will it end? It won’t end well for them, IMHO.

    I’m so tired of the race hustlers. It is perfectly reasonable to be curious about someone’s origins. We commonly ask about people’s accents, for example, because we are interested in them. It’s part of life’s rich tapestry.

    The current storm in a teapot is a fabricated one. The race activist was born in England to a Caribbean couple and has a typically Anglo name. She has chosen to “go African” as an affectation with new name, hairstyle and fancy dress. Cultural appropriation if ever I saw it.

    If you make yourself exotic you are looking for attention and comments. That she was recording the interaction tells us that this is probably part of the Markle Netflix “all the Royals are racist” publicity stunt. It is disgraceful that Lady Hussey has been thrown under the bus for making polite small talk.

    My thoughts exactly. I am SO sick of the “racist” narrative. It’s depressingly predictable. That’s why I am surprised myself at Lady Susan Hussey – surely an alarm bell would have sounded in her head at one point when she wasn’t getting the answer she was looking for.

    BTW I don’t think the offended one taped the conversation – I heard someone saying that it was all transcribed from her memory and she admitted herself she couldn’t be sure it was all accurate. She’s made it worse than it probably was and it wasn’t all that bad to start with IMHO, unless you (she!) was looking to make something of it for troublemaking reasons. She’s an attention seeker, you can tell that from her interviews. All smiles for someone so “offended”.

      I think most people are sick and tired of the racist narrative. I know I am. I’ve never felt any animosity towards anyone because of their race, religion or skin colour but I can see how that could change when I am considered to be racist just because I happen to be white, as if I made a decision to be white, LOL! The whole thing is sheer lunacy.

        Margaret Mary,

        “Lunacy” is the word. The whole nonsense of racist this, and racist that, is lunacy and it is designed to cause division in the country. I think it’s deliberate. I’m just not sure who exactly is pulling the strings. But somebody is.

    I couldn’t agree more – the racist rubbish, the whole woke nonsense, is really wearing. That woman is an attention seeker and obviously well in with Meghan Markle, a woman I just can’t think of as “royal”.
    Prince William should be ashamed of his treatment of Lady Hussey.

      Bernie,

      Agreed. Indeed, I think Prince William’s response to this nonsense is one of the most worrying aspects of the whole thing. Now that the royal family is seen to have abandoned its clever “never complain, never explain” policy, it’s set on a never-ending downward spiral of having to cave into the increasingly outrageous demands of the woke mob. And it IS a “mob”. A bunch of bullies.

    This wokery Garbage is now and always has been B.S . This Black Women came from Africa originally just as Lots of Our Ancestors came from Ireland .
    One other thing is I never seen a Black Person in my Working Life in construction with a Pair of Working Boots on . The Illegal Immigrants don’t have to worry about Energy Prices and thats a Fact. They sure know a good thing when they see it.

    I feel really sorry for Lady Hussey – this is a friend of hers writing about her.

      Margaret Mary,

      I feel sorry for her too and anyone else caught out by the woke mob. After 60 years of service to the royal family, they threw her under the bus the minute this stupid fuss, this “much ado about nothing”, broke out. Shame on them.
