White Guilt and Black Power: The Creation of the Structural Racism Myth

White Guilt and Black Power: The Creation of the Structural Racism Myth

Shelby Steele argues that the combination of a black power ideology and white guilt (or more accurately white fear of the stigma of racism) has thwarted the promise of the civil rights era to create a post-racial world.

A Women’s Equality Party that alienates its most vulnerable

A Women’s Equality Party that alienates its most vulnerable

Far from its claim of making politics more diverse and representative, the WEP appears to be a platform for a singular elite to wield power by enacting a form of feminism that only achieves women’s liberation by curtailing that of men.

Artists4Brexit: Response to Matthew Parris

It has long been a curatorial fantasy of mine to organise a re-staging of a boxing match that took place in 1972 between the German artist Joseph Beuys, regarded as a giant of modern art, with a local art student of his.

The Psychopathology of the Progressive Mind

The Psychopathology of the Progressive Mind

Our values today are being driven not by morality, rationality or philosophy but by the harsh, crude and bitter outpourings of petulant and snarling individuals.

But the EU is a very modern empire which extends its power through regulation and bureaucracy not with armies.

Immigrants at Ease Make the Antiracists Uneasy

Two years ago, I took a visiting German colleague to a Diwali dinner at an Indian friend’s house in the UK. The guests were a mixed bunch, mostly Southeast Asian but several English and mixed-race couples. The serving staff were English.

Decolonising the Curriculum: Whose Knowledge is it Anyway?

Decolonising the Curriculum: Whose Knowledge is it Anyway?

We need a debate about the curriculum and the knowledge we teach pupils in schools and later on at university level. The decolonising the curriculum movement isn’t it.

Whose mythical past?

Whose mythical past?

This month, scientists unveiled a reconstruction of the face of Cheddar Man, who died around 9,000 years ago, and whose skeleton was found in a cave in Somerset in 1903. DNA analysis has now revealed that ‘the earliest known Briton’ – part of a population from which modern white Britons are thought to descend – probably had dark to black skin and blue eyes.

A victory for diversity – of opinion

Good news: Kings College London Student Union passed a motion at their AGM to send to the NUS Conference calling upon student unions to end safe space and no-platform policies at universities. The proposal won by a landslide.

A new category of victimhood? Caste in the UK

A new category of victimhood? Caste in the UK

In 2013 amendments initiated in the House of Lords decided that specific legal protection against caste discrimination should be introduced in the UK, by making caste an aspect of race in the Equality Act 2010. The underlying assumptions were that caste discrimination is rife against the 500,000 Dalits in UK (a figure that cannot be confirmed, since no caste based data are currently collected), and that current legislation neither protected them nor acknowledged their unfair treatment in UK. The Government set out a public consultation and the responses are being analysed now.

Immigration and the outrage industry

Immigration and the outrage industry

David Goodhart's report for Policy Exchange on the ending of free movement has provoked a predictably hysterical reaction from those who seem unable to deal with any discussion of immigration in a fair and rational way.

Who speaks for Muslims?

The announcement yesterday that the government has chosen Sara Khan as the Lead Commissioner for its new Counter-Extremism agency has provoked predictable condemnation from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) and one of its most high profile allies, Conservative peer Baroness Sayeeda Warsi.

H&M Fallout

H&M Fallout

"The social media spat around H&M and the 'monkey boy hoodie' is touch ironic, given that the company at the centre of this storm is one of the most progressive in the casting of black models in the the retail industry in the UK and internationally. If there was a league table of ethical fashion retailers H&M would be in the top 10. The picture below is from their 2014 autumn campaign taken by me in Barcelona. I took the picture. All of the models in the campaign were black, not just the one shown. Is this issue about racism or people turning an innocent image into something more political." says Kunle Olulode

Thomas Sowell lives!

Thomas Sowell lives!

I read a tweet the other day from Andrew Neil which saddened me. It said “Mr Sowell was a great man. His death a great loss”. Thankfully, after a quick check, I established that reports of Thomas Sowell’s death have been greatly exaggerated.  Aged 87, he has merely retired from writing to focus on his hobby of photography.
