Oh, I remember Thatcher....but as far as I can recall PC as a principle started creeping in around the end of her reign as PM, to be fair to her I don't think she personally had much time for it, and has gradually insinuated itself into almost every influential body or organisation.

It seems to me, and I could easily be wrong here, that it is driven by interfering, middle class suburbanite do-gooders who, despite being well intentioned, are destroying the very fabric of our society and doing far more harm than good.

New Labour and it's nanny state mind set implemented much legislation which is PC influenced, not all of it necessarily bad, but it seems as if the current equally inept and amoral administration is continuing in the same vein.

We are producing a generation of people who are incapable of dealing with the cold, harsh realities of life and the challenges it throw at us.

The UK government, in 2001, forced schools and colleges to promote good relations between persons of different racial groups.

It's kind of sad that they have to brand over 30,000 kids as racists while doing it.


The race equality duty places a general duty on public authorities in
performing their public function to have due regard for the need to:
a) eliminate unlawful racial discrimination;
b) promote equality of opportunity; and
c) promote good relations between persons of different racial groups.

Race Relations Act and the Duty to Promote Racial Equality


So schools don't just have a duty to take reasonable steps to prevent racism, they have a legal duty to promote equality and good relations between different races.


Actions schools and colleges are required to undertake Each school/college should:

● agree a race equality policy which is compliant with the legislation and the code of practice;
● establish an action plan and timetable for the implementation of the policy;
● communicate the policy to staff, pupils/students and parents;
● train staff as appropriate;
● provide such resources as are necessary for the implementation of the policy;
● monitor the operation and impact of its race equality policy and all other policies;
● identify and implement changes to bring about improvements in racial equality practice and outcomes.

Race Relations Act and the Duty to Promote Racial Equality


So schools and colleges are no longer allowed to just teach people. They have a legal duty to enagage in social engineering.

There is perhaps more to it than that.

For instance, MI5 apparently suspected Harold Wilson of being a KGB agent.


MI5 secret file on Harold Wilson: KGB contacts made him a suspect

The Security Service, MI5, kept a secret file on Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson throughout his time in office because of his friendships with eastern European businessmen and contacts with the KGB.

The Telegraph


I find it hard to accept that the sheer power and extent of the PC movement has just come from middle class suburbanite do-gooders.

What I can be sure of, is that it has come from somewhere and hasn't just happened.

Believe it or not this story is true even though it came from the mail. the black boy didnt mind the question but when he went home and asked his mum if he aas from africa his mum kicked off with tge school.

Also the curious childs mum refused to sign the notification declaring her son was a racist, rightly so, and enrolled him in a different school.

it was a mountain out of an anthill & the school should of used there brains & common sense. unfortunately talking to my wifes dad who is a teacher; Common sense is sadly lacking in schools, & most of society nowadays.

Apologies for the grammar, posted from a mobile.

Sorry, I don't quite get the connection?

They may not have been the instigators but they seem to be it's biggest public proponents and supporters etc.

I don't know.....not sure if it was designed to deliberately undermine our society, or as a social engineering exercise or even if it is a well intentioned attempt to eliminate things like racism and inequality etc that has just developed a momentum of it's own and has become far more detrimental and divisive than it's original intention.

This ex-KGB agent has been strangely prophetic

Bezmenov on demoralization in America

- He makes the point that the KGB spent (spends?) 85% of its budget distorting how the people in enemy states view reality. It is a process of destroying states from the inside out.

In my experience, kids don't seem to be racist, it's adulthood that brings that. Especialy at very young ages, it's naivity and curiosity, not racism.

I live in a small village in the UK, growing up my kids had only white kids at thier school, there just wasn't anyone of any other colour here. When my kids were about 5, they sent a shoebox full of things to Africa as a gift to other children, then one day when we were shopping in the nearby city my daughter saw a black girl in one of the shops. She said to me, "Daddy, can i ask her if she got my shoebox?"


I guess i could have handed her over to the police and asked for her to be done for racism, but i went with my better judgement and just smiled before educating her in the subject.

I'm guessing better than 90%...but that's racist to say, I'm sure.

The reason why I ask, is because, if the study is just focusing on racisism with caucasians, then wouldn't that be. . . er. . . . um . . . . racist?

Thats truly amazing, I wasn't the most prone to using racist remarks at school but i certainly wasn't complete innocently either. I remember calling my chinese friends gooks and they called us guilos. People calling each other gay or gaylord or even jewish. I also had to explain to my black friend that people were taking the mick out of him when they said "alright junglebunny" and would then throw an imaginary spear at him, which he would catch and throw back, even after i explained. It was all just part of the banter, and none of us really cared, generally we could be racsist towards each other because we were all good friends but i was always wary of over doing it, i would never even think of it with a stranger. Although never insult a chinese mans family in his own language, even if you are friends and especially if he is bigger than you
(Cantonese - lay lo mo wat dat tsing tsing - your mother is a disgusting gorilla
)

edit: oh just so you know i was at a boarding school so we had people from all over the place.

I find it sad how we now live in a world, where thoughts once natural are now classed as hate crimes.

So when my six year old asked me why he and i are white and mummy is brown was i being racist and even worse instilling my racism in to my sons mind by telling him that granma is from Malaysia and grandad is from Jamaca and the people there are brown so mummy is brown?
I think not.

On a side note my son is white skined and fair haired,while his mum is brown skined and has lovely dark curly hair and you should see some people's reaction when he calls her mummy in public,im sure they think he is adopted.

Any organisation which parrots the term

"ZERO TOLERANCE" about anything should be disbanded immediately

Like some sort of missive from an old eastern bloc country

My son told a particularly awful mouthy girl at school to go "Put some more make up on her spotty face", she later opened a report for racism as this translated in her brain to " Put some more make up on your dirty face" and claimed it was a racist insult as she in an asian lass.

She eventually dropped it when even her friends came forward to say she's made it up, did we even get an apology? No. Even the school said they couldn't do anything as her family would just brand the teachers racist. You couldn't make it up!.

This makes me so angry.
You can't condemn or brand a child because they have a natural curiosity.
When my ex-boyfriend's brother was young, they had a black man in their home who was visiting. He went up to the man and wiped him on the arm with his hand, and then looked at his hand, to see if the colour came off. He was about 4 years old.
Where we are from, we have a very very small black community, you can go for weeks without seeing a black person, which I think further increases curiosity.

You say 21 years of racial abuse and counting and that kids are the worst for it.

Could you expand your post and share your experiences?

Ok people can we stop pretending that children cannot be racist. True they lack maturity and developed critical thinking but unfortunetly they can be influenced. Parents mold thier children so chances are if both parents are racists and thats what the child is around it will be racist. Its just like parents teaching their kids about anything whether directly or indirectly kids pick up on these things they arent stupid. So there are children who could be identified as racist because of those things.

Also I dont understand why people are upset that schools are doing social engineering....this has always been the case. School is supposed to teach skills so that you can function in society. Racism is detrimental to society because it creats divison and hate. Therefore schools are taking steps to try and stamp it out.
