Now here’s something I would never have expected

Amnesty International has a culture of white privilege

An organisation which exists to tell all those damn foreigners how they should treat the natives does what?

  1. To be fair to them, they started out telling foreigners to adopt or stick to Western traditional liberal standards. Fair trials, not torturing, due process, and the like. Possibly futile, but worth a try in and some cases even worth supporting.

    Then they gradually changed into another woke organisation that exists to gain equality of outcome for non-whites. So it then became predictable that it would turn on itself and instigate purges.

    Just look at the accusations in the article. “No, you can’t have promotion, because your work isn’t up to it, and besides, your sort don’t fit in here. Know your place. Oh, and before you get back to your cubicle….could I just touch your hair?”

  2. Senior staff using the N-word and P-word, with colleagues labelled over-sensitive if they complained.

    What’s the P word? Pakistani, or its shorthand?

    Systemic bias including the capability of black staff being questioned consistently and without justification

    Lol, sure.

    A lack of awareness or sensitivity to religious practices resulting in problematic comments and behaviour.

    Not too keen on Catholics and their fishy Fridays, are they?

    Aggressive and dismissive behaviour, particularly over email

    These people have no idea what aggressive behaviour is.

    Citing the killing of George Floyd

    That’s St. George of Fentanyl to you, infidel.

    But what’s it all about, Alfie?

    It continued: “Despite some notable and hard-won changes in recent years, control and influence over our resources, decision-making … has remained overwhelmingly in the hands of … people from the white majority Global North.”

    Ah. Charity, eh?

    Odukoya, who worked within the campaigns and community organising teams at AIUK, said that as a black woman she was constantly mentally exhausted navigating an environment that was “hostile to blackness”. “There’s a hegemonic white middle-class culture that seemed to be protected and reproduced. White privilege was pervasive,” she said.

    Exhausting indeed. Have we reached Peak N-word yet or nah?

    Doubt. Some black women seem to be insanely jealous of white wimmins’ hair, it’s a weird hangup they have, hence these ridiculous stories that sound a lot like how small children tell lies.

    It’s not a rough inner city high school circa 1976 though, she’s demanding we believe that painfully right-on middle class wokies in 2020’s London are asking to pet her afro.

    Narp.

    Is it too much to ask the Conservative (lol) government to take the golden opportunity, when woke organisations such as Amnesty or Glasgow University, declare themselves to be institutionally raciss, to cut them off from taxpayer cash?

    After all, they’re raciss.

  3. Citing the killing of George Floyd

    This is forbidden?!

    Calling balls on the second part.

  4. Rob – it’s not forbidden, they ‘cited’ the tragically stupid death of a druggie career criminal in America as a reason why Amnesty International is plagued by whiteness and needs to immediately turn over all them comfortably remunerated senior leadership jobs to People of Soul-Glo.

    Makes sense when you don’t think about it.

    I wish it wasn’t Steve. But it is.

  6. I once asked a friend, an Amnesty supporter, about their mild criticism of a left-wing regime. “Yes” said she “we have to do that occasionally to give the appearance of being even-handed.”
