Liberal wishful thinking on race.

An atmosphere of suspicion and mistrust can arise in the multiracial workplace, as white people need to be continually on their guard about what they may say to, and about, black colleagues, since any slip of the tongue that is deemed 'racist' could lead to dismissal. It should be remembered that the whole employment equality agenda is based on the fictional premise that, taken as a whole, the people of all races are potentially equally competent in all areas of work and that, if any inequality of outcome occurs between the races, it can only be due to 'discrimination' or 'prejudice'. There is absolutely no foundation for this belief other than liberal egalitarian wishful thinking.

One only has to compare the historical achievements of white Europeans with those of black Africans, in just about every category of attainment other than some sports, to understand the absurdity of the 'equality' agenda. However, this is not to say that some individual blacks are not more skilled or intelligent than some individual whites, since there is a wide overlap between the intelligence and abilities of people from the two races. Unfortunately, some on the Right are proponents of the theory of genetic determinism, which declares that black people, by virtue of being black are, for genetic reasons, inferior in intelligence and ability to whites. However, there is not a shred of objective evidence to support this theory, which owes its origins to eugenics and dud scientism. The reason for the disparity in general intelligence and ability between races still remains a mystery.

In the early days of mass third world immigration liberals advocated a policy of assimilation into British society. However, by the early seventies this policy was found to be unrealistic since most ethnic people chose to retain their cultural identity, which was facilitated by the growth of minority communities. So the policy of integration was quietly dropped and replaced by the promotion of multiculturalism, which stressed the 'enrichment' and 'diversity' that ethnic minorities bring to British society.

However, the term 'multicultural society' is another liberal nonsense, since the presence of different cultural communities leads to the fragmentation of society. In practice, the different communities live largely separate lives, connected only by geographical proximity. If multiculturalism was genuinely as enriching as its supporters claim, then the residents of the more homogeneous parts of Britain, such as Cornwall or Cumbria, would be agitating for more ethnic minorities to move into their areas. There is clearly no such demand by ordinary people who are quite content for their neighbourhoods to remain as defiantly monocultural as they have always been. For example, the late esteemed Charles Kennedy, when Liberal Democrat leader, repeatedly stressed the benefits of a multicultural society. It is worth noting that his own constituency in northern Scotland had about the lowest percentage of ethnic minorities in the country, and his constituents were likely to be blissfully unaware of the benefits that multiculturalism brings.

One further fallacy proclaimed by liberals is that it is only whites who are capable of practicing the sin of 'racism'. In reality, it is only whites who are made to feel guilty about the achievements of their race, for the fact of being white and for preferring their own kind. People of other races do not share this guilt complex and have fewer qualms about pursuing their own racial agenda. This is a bitter lesson whites are likely to learn in the coming years when black people achieve more positions of power and authority in our society. What underpins multiculturalism is the cultural Marxist elite’s distaste and dislike of Western culture and achievement. In their eyes traditional British culture has now become 'irrelevant' or 'outdated' and must be replaced by a bogus value system which proclaims that all cultures (except our own) are equally 'valid' or 'relevant'. The end result of this iconoclasm will be to lose our national heritage for 'a mess of potage'. So the state sponsored multiculturalist experiment, in which we are all unwilling guinea-pigs, needs to be brought to a swift conclusion before the damage becomes irreparable. Some aspects of ethnic minority involvement in British life have been highly detrimental, such as black ghetto culture, or could be potentially destructive, for example, militant Islam. The black musical heritage of gospel, jazz, rhythm & blues, reggae and sixties soul has been a very positive one. However, since the eighties it has largely been replaced by a degraded form of 'musical' expression known as rap or hip-hop. In fact it is not music at all since the 'tune' is always the same, the lyrics being 'rapped' to much the same beat.

For some inexplicable reason it is enormously popular with urban blacks, and is considered to be the height of cool amongst some impressionable white youths. The music industry appears content for this to continue indefinitely since it requires no talent for musical composition, which is in short supply. Rap is noted for its often offensive lyrics, contemptuous attitude towards women, celebration of violence for its own sake and the extolling of gun culture and gangsterism. Had it arisen from the white working class it would have been reviled and condemned, but instead it is considered as an authentic expression of black urban culture and patronised by the liberal elite. The most noticeable example of this was when one particularly asinine Chief Constable performed a rap at a meeting of his black police association, degrading his uniform and police force in the process. Many of the less appealing aspects of urban black culture have been adopted by deadbeat white youths, who mimic black ghetto fashions, and spread graffiti.

For most of the post war years youth culture had the capacity to renew itself with vibrant new fashions and music. However, this all now seems to have come to an end as, for the last quarter century, popular music and fashions have hardly changed with both remaining at a low level of creativity and style. Evidence for this depressed state is demonstrated by the folding of three of the four popular music weeklies and the collapse of the audience for the BBC’s flagship popular music programme Top of the Pops, which has now been axed. Although it would be a mistake to blame black culture entirely for this malaise, it has certainly had a disproportionate impact.
