We really should know better than to listen to htem

This is one of the little things about the modern world which just should not surprise us. Even though it does come as a surprise to find out how these higher reaches of governance actually work. For someone interested in finding racism in every corner and nook of modern life has found racism in the UK. We are surprised, no?

Britain’s policies on austerity, immigration and tackling terrorism are racist, a United Nations watchdog has claimed.

Ministers hit back after Tendayi Achiume, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on racism, called for the anti-terrorism Prevent strategy to be shut down and anti-immigration laws to be repealed.

A Home Office source said the criticism was not based on “reality” while former Conservative leader Iain Duncan-Smith said her claims were “complete rubbish”.

The rapporteur involved is this one. Who is part of this at UCLA Law School:

Critical Race Studies Program: Think. Teach. Transform.

The mission of the Critical Race Studies program is to:

think new ideas
teach future leaders and scholars and
transform racial justice advocacy.

The only program of its kind in the United States, UCLA Law’s Critical Race Studies (CRS) program is the premier institutional setting for the study of the intersection between race and the law. Anchored by renowned scholars whose research represents the cutting edge of critical race theory in legal scholarship and related disciplines, our CRS program has no parallel in American legal education.

The cornerstone of the program is an academic course of study, the CRS specialization, which attracts the top students committed to racial justice scholarship and legal practice.

“Critical Studies” is always a bit of a giveaway, isn’t it?

Do note something about these rapporteurs. According to the UN at least they gain no income from their work and reports. They’re thus public spirited citizens doing it for free. Or as we might put it, maniacs on their subject.

Maniac on the subject of race, one involved with a US law program so extreme there’s only one of its type, finds racism in UK.

We are indeed surprised. That anyone ever thought she’d find anything else.

  1. Be surprised, if you looked at the UK without the distorting filters of multiculturalism intervening, you didn’t find a great deal of racism.
    There’s the racism endemic with pretty well all of the ethnic minorities, for a start. With the Afro derived it’s directed against everyone else, with Afro-Caribbean versus African as a sideline. The various asian populations against anyone not them. Chinese are in doubt about the qualification for humanity about many of the non-Chinese & Indians have a whole internal system of racism of their very own. Jews have a whole religion & culture built around exclusion. In big cities like London over half the population is racist to some degree.
    Oh & there may even be some white British racists about, somewhere. Although they generally try & keep their heads down & their opinions to themselves.
    For the particular sort of institutional racism around government & the law, it’s generally anti-white racism. The better treatment of minorities versus the indigenous population. The various bys they’re given on infringements of the law are pursued with vigour in the general population.
    But I don’t supposed critical studies are interested in critically studying at any of this.

  2. An advocate who is looking for racism beneath every stone, using “disparate impact” as evidence of ill will, and demanding equality of result is: a racist, certain to evaluate on a racial basis policies, such as strong borders, that have no racial basis except that those on the outside happen to look different from (traditional) Brits.

    “The intersection between race and the law” means exploiting the universal public opposition to actual racism in order to get remedial racism made coercive and universal. This unites those of dark skin with a dozen other groups with unrelated grievances into a political movement which, in American cities, never actually addresses anyone’s grievance. What ferments in California does not stay in California!
