A Black History Month website controlled by a white man featured taxpayer-funded adverts alongside claims that white people are the “genetically defective descendants of albino mutants”, a Telegraph investigation has found.
Not exactly the way I would put it but as far as we know black is the default colour – perhaps the original – and white skin evolved several times. Evolution is the survival of those with different genes, or genetic expressions perhaps. White skin isn’t albino tho’. But the rest, genetically defective descendants of mutants, is actually true even if not quite the way to put it.
But that’s not the barking mad bit:
However, it is owned by a private business, controlled by Ian Thomas, an advertising executive, who set it up long after the annual celebration was established.
On Friday, Linda Bellos, who was instrumental in launching the Black History Month celebration in the UK in the late Eighties, compared the website’s white ownership to “enslavement”.
“The whole purpose of Black History Month is to empower us [black people] … I don’t want some white man, or even white woman, playing that role,” she said. “The taking of ideas, and indeed the taking of people, was done very successfully by the British, it is called enslavement. I am not talking about his motives, but I am talking about the outcome.”
Celebrating this nation’s lovely diversity with a website is enslavement now….
