â Lee Jasper, who advised former London Mayor Ken Livingstone on equalities, said it was time the black community ran its own schools, with black teachers and black governors.â
âMr Jasper said Jewish, Muslim and Hindu communities already had their own schools. And he accused the "liberal community" of dismissing the idea of black schools, while failing to address "institutional racism" within education.â
Not only is he allowed to publicly say this, he gets space in National press and National TV? Of course âHeâsâ not racist, is he, no of course not. Now, if say Peregrine Foreskin-Smythe declared there should be schools for âwhitesâ only â the outrage bus would be on his doorstep before he reached the last full stop and heâd be in the can awaiting the magistrate.
âMr Jasper said Jewish, Muslim and Hindu communities already had their own schools.â
Yes because their criteria is religion, not colour. Religions have different practices, diets, holy days, prayer schedules, dress codes etc. I donât really suppose many Christians would be happy about their children dancing around a statue of Ganesh as Jews would be happy about their children singing songs to the Virgin Mary.
And, yet again we see the âselective blackâ issue. When it suites the protesters âblackâ includes the world and his wife who are not âwhiteâ. e.g. When weâre told what a magnificent contribution the âblackâ soldier made in WWII, we are given examples of Sikhs VC, MÃ¢oris VC and Ghurkas VC??? Great, Central Asiatics, Nepalese and Polynesians are lumped in with Afro-Caribbeans? If thatâs the case how come the Arabs miss a mention? Yet when it suites the argument, the likes of Lee Jasper elect to modify terminology to play a âraceâ card?
âwhile failing to address "institutional racism" within educationâ
They say heâs the former adviser to Livingstone â presumably this relates to London? So what about ALL the London schools, not to mention other parts of the country, where âwhiteâ children account for less than 20% of the pupils??? Against whom would âinstitutional racismâ be levied???
âMr Jasper said black schools would be open to all races but would be âfocused in terms of their ethos, ethics and curriculum to the needs of our childrenâ".
Yeah, so the school cap is replaced with tea cosies and teachers smoke splifs in the Common Room? Weâll call them âModel T Fordâ schools â any colour as long as itâs black.
ââ¦..employed teachers that look like the young people they are teaching."
Utterly unbelievable! Suppose a âwhiteâ parent made that statement???
So, is Jasper saying it should be publicly acknowledged that children who are âblackâ are academically inferior â which is bollox IMHO â or is he a racist ****?
