The suggestion of "unconscious bias" has come from The National Army Museum. Which despite it's title, is a piss poor effort at representing the history of the British Army.I see a report this morning that they are now questioning the unknown soldier in Westminster Abbey.
It would appear that thanks to unconscious bias the generals would only have picked a white soldier.
It really is getting to be ridicules now
One of the original ideas for the unknown soldier was that families who had lost a loved one, whose remains were unidentified, could believe that "The Unknown Soldier" was their loved one.
Seeing as white people in this country were in an even greater vast majority then than they are now, it's hardly surprising that odds on, the unknown soldier was white. And intended to be so.
Although watching pretty well anything on tv would give the impression that the opposite is now true.
I urge anyone who has any interest in this to read "The Unknown Soldier" by Neil Hanson.
Which also covers the story behind other country's unknowns & is a cracking read.
I, along with most people, have about had enough of this so called woke shit now.
