Fighting Racism With Racial Segregation - James Macpherson

British Vogue Magazine published an article on August 2 promoting the idea of a blacks only university under the heading “anti-racism”.

Which just goes to show, socially acceptable racism is very one-sided. If Vogue journalists suggested a whites only university, they would be chased through the streets!

The article began:

“In the wake of anti-racism protests the world over The Black Lives Matter movement has reignited fresh calls to decolonise higher education. Statues of colonialists on university campuses are set to be removed … but efforts haven’t gone far enough … Plans are underway to establish the UK’s first ever Black university.”

Segregation! There’s an idea that hasn’t been tried before!

“Maybe Apartheid was a good system” is not something I expected from British Vogue in 2020.

Why is it that everything Progressives do ends up taking us backwards? They love to run full speed ahead, in reverse.

The article quotes students who complain that there are “not enough black faces” on university campuses in the UK.

Someone might like to suggest to these rocket scientists that, with a UK black population of around 4%, there will always be less black faces on campus. That’s not racism. That’s demographics.

The article doesn’t say exactly how a black university would work. Perhaps they will use a colour wheel to determine whether young people are black enough to attend. Or maybe they play some music and if you dance, you’re in.

Ultimately I imagine everything will depend on whether you identified yourself as black or white at the beginning of the academic year. 

But if they can’t create a black university, maybe these so-called anti-racists could convince universities to start having separate areas for blacks and whites. You know, like separate toilets, separate water fountains, separate seats on busses. It’s the future!

This is what happens when you teach gender studies rather than history and consequences. You end up with gold standard Woketards!
