‘Culture’ now means black. White culture has been abolished

The Summer Edition of the Salisbury Review is out now..

I like the idea of further study but didn’t expect to have a whole new learning suddenly required of me. Like many I am struggling to keep up; it began on Friday June 5th when registered nurse Carol Cooper told BBC Woman’s Hour about something very like genocide.

Just back from the Birmingham Black Lives Matter demonstration, she described the ‘less favourable outcome’ for black staff with the Covid virus, due to a deliberate ‘bias’ in the NHS. Nurse Cooper said they were being deliberately, ‘appointed to Covid-19 wards disproportionately.’

Interviewer Jenni Murray was surprised enough to ask her for evidence.

‘Evidence is always a difficult one,’ Cooper replied knowingly. ‘It’s a problem for (dealing with) racism.’

‘This is what staff are telling me,’ she said, ‘and I am in a unique position.’

She’s a Regional NHS Head of Equality, Diversity and Human Rights, and last year won a ‘Nursing Diversity and Inclusion Champion of the Year Award.’

Surprisingly not all NHS staff have been happy with her allegations. She says some colleagues who’ve been challenged ungratefully adopt, ‘a position of white fragility,’ ignoring the fact that, she says, ‘We must all own and accept racism.’

That includes the NHS and Public Health England, which recently carried out a report into the virus and ethnicity looking at a thousand cases. Cooper believes that, ‘Racism is a toxin, a public health issue,’ and the report was just ‘Spin,’ another attempt at, ‘stifling our voices and saying again that black lives don’t matter.’

Rule 1 of the new learning: Asking for evidence may be racist. The need for the deconstructions of British institutions is already a given.

For the first time I had to try to ‘own’ as they now say, the idea that empirical evidence is reactionary, only required by the unenlightened. This is just part of a whole new culture we must embrace.  

Rule 2: ‘Culture’ now means black, from the street, anything else is elitist and unacceptable.

This was confirmed by a black activist at the London BLM rally who told the BBC Today program, ‘Black Lives Matter is about breaking the strangle-hold of the Oxbridge elite.’

This agenda was perhaps first observed openly in 2011 by Historian David Starkey on BBC Question Time. He mentioned a ‘profound cultural change.’

‘The whites have become black,’ he opined. ‘A particular sort of violent destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become the fashion and black and white boys and girls operate in this language together.’

Outrageously he called this, ‘A problem.’

There was a storm of protest led in the media by Jeremy Corbyn. Owen Jones on the panel with Starkey said, ‘He tapped into racial prejudice at a time of national crisis. (The economic crash) At other times, those comments would be inflammatory but they are downright dangerous in the current climate.’

Starkey hasn’t been on the programme or anywhere else much since.

Later that evening I understood that for middle-aged white people like me, ‘Boomers,’ ‘Gammons’ whatever you call us, our culture is now over and we are all the better for that.  Clive Anderson’s Radio 4 programme Loose Ends, once a mild chat show, featured a group called, The Last Poets. Formed to commemorate the death of Malcolm X, their name is taken from a poem by South African revolutionary Keorapetse Kgositsile, who believed he was in the last era of poetry before guns would take over.

‘Just as relevant now as it was then,’ chirped Anderson.

The group, Abiodun Oyowele, Umar Bin Hassan and Suliaman El-Hadi, performed a slow rap called ‘Understand What Black Is,’ with the clear message, ‘Understand, or else.’

On Saturday I awoke to an interview with Dr Bettina Love, ‘A professor of Hip-Hop’ from the University of Georgia.  I had felt Starkey’s ‘shift of culture,’ but it seemed there had been an overnight coup where useless old discourse had been replaced by the language of the street, the one which winds from Brixton to the US, embracing crack-houses rather than middle-class aspiration.

 For a few reactionary moments I felt uneasy, but quickly repressed those heretical feelings.

Instead I listened eagerly to George The Poet, real name George Mpanga, a Ugandan from Neasden, asked by the BBC to ‘explore what rap can teach us about education.’

He explained that during his Politics A Level he realised, ‘You had to be really good at reading and that’s not fair,’ so he decided on ‘trying to put current affairs into my own way of doing things,’ by becoming a rapper. A wise choice; in 2018 he was elected to be a Member of the National Council of Arts for Arts Council England.

Saturday ended with the Simon Armitage, Britain’s Poet Laureate, making farting noises with a rapper called Testament, who was teaching him how to ‘beatbox’ a black art-form using the voice to imitate drums. Perhaps I was hearing ‘The last poets,’ it certainly made a change from all that old white stuff we used to hear on Poetry Please presented by Roger McGough.

Over the weekend the new learning continued to be delineated by the BBC as Black Lives Matter demonstrators went into action injuring ten policemen and putting one in hospital after her horse was hit by a barrage of bottles and stolen bikes. A boy in a red hoodie defaced both the Cenotaph and the statue of Churchill unimpeded by any police action. A white man was filmed being beaten to the ground again with no concern from the bluebottles. Since the 1980s parts of the black community have been calling for an end to all policing of their community and now at last it seemed they’d achieved their rightful wish.

Rule 3: Better to take no action than be accused of the R word.

Many demonstrators were fuelled by the belief that policing in the UK is exactly the same as in the US

‘I’m so glad we can finally be open about the abuse and killing of black people which goes on every single day,’ said a fourteen -year- old black girl in the crowd.

Rule 4: What black believe must be true. There is no other possibility.

Protests about this incessant massacre led to demonstrations in many cities including Bristol where the statue of slaver, MP and philanthropist Edward Colston was toppled. The BBC only refer to him as ‘a slaver,’ and on Twitter the event was joyfully compared the fall of the Berlin Wall.    

Rule 5: There is no need for any accurate appraisal of history.

Sunday evening the BBC gave us Profile when presenter Mark Coles usually interviews cabinet ministers and foreign leaders. This week he appraised ‘Killer Mike,’ and played his song, ‘Sanctified Sick.’

As he rapped away, I could almost see his long flingers flicking and gold teeth flashing. I once thought I’d left all that behind in South London, how glad I am to find that is no longer possible. But perhaps the BBC didn’t check on Killer’s attitudes were before they booked him; he rejected the violence of BLM demonstrators and wept. He is also a philanthropist so if he isn’t careful may find himself in serious trouble.

Monday began with BBC Radio 4, Thought for the Day. The Rev Professor David Wilkinson furthered Nurse Cooper’s observations by stating that more black infants die in NHS hospitals than white due to racism.  He didn’t provide any evidence but as we all know; statistics are very likely to be racist.

Rule 6:  Black cannot be blamed for problems. White created them all.   

Monday lunch-time Sarah Smith on BBC Radio 4 World at One, asked, ‘Why wasn’t the statue of Colston pulled down earlier?’  and stated that no one mourned its loss.  What fool would dare to?

Later, on BBC Radio 4 Extra, by accident I had on, shamefully, a very old episode of, Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, broadcast from Liverpool which was described as ‘an old sea port.’ Hearing that sounded to my re-educated ears, akin to an old racist joke; Liverpool like Bristol has an evil past which should no longer be ignored. It’s unlikely that it will ever be described in that innocent way again, if described at all.

There have been some surprising slip-ups today; a feature on Woman’s Hour about fertility treatment neglected to say that it a is inherently racist. It must be – as everything else is. No doubt they will apologise tomorrow.

Rule 7: There can be no nuance.

By Tuesday we had a minute’s silence in Parliament and Diane Abbott talking at length on the BBC at lunch time, about the lack of racism she has experienced, which is merely a disguise for  underlying, ‘micro-aggressions.’

The campaign to replace erroneous British thought is now well under way but another threat looms:  handsome, successful Sean Bailey, black but Conservative, as if that is really possible, and lacking consciousness of his own victimhood, is planning to stand as the next Mayor of London. He will need very careful watching.

9 Comments on ‘Culture’ now means black. White culture has been abolished

  1. All looks bad.

    But perhaps this:

    There are three groups who really do need one another:

    The investor classes and the people in the hard professions and the excellent folk who labour mightily in the systems that supply goods and services-

    -that is, in food, healthcare, construction/renovation of shelter, all things to make a house a home, transport, energy, water and waste, policing and other security, all these essentials.

    Members of these three groups all need one another to flourish, even if they do not attend the same social gatherings.

    Just perhaps, as the marxist-inspired “social justice” forces make things increasingly difficult for goods and services to be supplied, and for money to change hands, and for rewards to flow to the highly-skilled, the steely-eyed realists in the three productive classes will have words with politicians and civil servants, and encourage them to take proper action to push back the various non-productive/destructive and ungrateful beneficiaries of Western Civ of all colours and creeds/non-creeds.

    But then, perhaps nothing like that will be done, and the destructive people will indeed entirely wreck the place.

  2. Black culture, or indeed, the US/UK axis of it, is mired in a self-defeating loop with slavery as its focal point. The black community knows full well the power of maintaining this chip on the collective shoulder because, as long as slavery continues unforgiven and can be weaponised by each subsequent generation, it acts as a comfort blanket with ‘Blame Whitey’ written on it in big letters.

    Black people don’t want to move on from the slave trade, in fact, they are desperate to cling on to the memory of it at all costs. What if they, as a community and a culture, one day all stand and announce that although never forgotten, they have forgiven the white man and recognise the need to consign events to history where they belong, to let go of the past and move forward into a brighter future? What will they have left? Only themselves, forever required to confront all the uncomfortable flaws in their own culture which have thus far been conveniently sidestepped because ‘it’s the white man’s fault’: the criminality, the fatherlessness, the normalisation of violence both inside and outside the home, the grotesque sense of ancestral entitlement…all must then be addressed with no excuses to offer and no race cards left to play. The American version of black society – imported wholesale into the UK – has become a grotesque caricature of itself, with scant regard for the wonders of antiquity or the potential of self-love over self-pity. Given current developments, I will no longer listen to anybody tell me how dirty my doorstep is until they’ve picked up a broom and swept their own.

  3. The killing of a black criminal 4,000 miles away, for which the accused has yet to go to trial and the full story told, is a different historical signifier to that of the obviously primed reaction from the hating left, black activists, woke politicians, media, and corporations all across the European world. The former is a criminal matter which is undergoing due process (as, for example, is the killing of the black policeman David Dorn in St Louis). The latter is a deliberate paradigm shift, widening the left’s anti-white culture war to anti-white race war; generalising the hatred from institutions to all white people, and paving the way for genocide.

    The answer is our nationalism, the burning-out of anti-white racism from all its places in the polity, the government machine and the public sector, and the ending of multiracialism via an humane but thorough-going, long-run process of mass repatriation. This is no longer a “happy multicult” -style paradigm, whereby everyone involved in the culture war tries to present what is happening in our home as “diversity”, “exciting”, “the future for our children”, etc. It is a paradigm of white-hatred and whitelessness. The enemies of our existence have to fought on the the ground on which they are now standing. Radicalise, therefore.

    • The political organisation called ‘Black Lives Matter’ does not seek ‘equality’, it is seeking black Marxist dominance and the people who have influence and power in Britain are aiding its cause by allowing our history to be consigned to ‘the memory hole’. “who controls the past controls the future. who controls the present controls the past”. Ring any alarm bells!? It did to George Orwell.

  4. Aldous Huxley and George Orwell wrote dystopian novels as a warning for a possible future Britain but I doubt very much that a dystopian novel based on Melanie Philip’s ‘Londonistan’, Douglas Murray’s ‘The Strange Death of Europe’ , or Michel Houlebeque’s ‘Submission’ would ever be transcribed into a movie for popular distribution. This can only be that those in power see accepting the denigration of British history as a positive policy. This latest show of acceptance for imported alien racialism by our infiltrated institutions is on track to fulfil the downfall of Anglo-Saxon/Christian culture in their own nation state. Tolerance shown to an aggressive alien force posing as morally superior whilst threatening violence means capitulation. Did we learn nothing from the Munich agreement of 1938?

    • Try reading ‘This Is London’ by Ben Judah – but only if you can stomach the desperate truth about where we are headed.

      • Dear Robert. the book – This is London – sounds to be in the same vein as ‘Dark Albion’ by David Abbott and portrays a dismal present and disastrous future not only for London’s dwindling English minority but for other major cities and communities in Britain.
