A lot of people are not going to like this…
Everyone else is going on about racism against black and minority groups…white people are a minority in America…so ‘who, what and where’ all got a lot more complicated.
America had a black president…how could that possibly happen in the country that is being portrayed by the press constantly as being so racist towards blacks? And he served two terms…
If you want change, vote for it, don’t riot.
Let’s talk about discrimination in the United Kingdom. The racism which I see in our health policies and in our media every single day bombarding the population with destructive news is ruining our country and making people depressed.
Today, in main national media news, we are told that black and south Asian(brown) people are more likely to die from covid19 in the United Kingdom…again this story keeps coming up without any evidence.
We didn’t rise up in defence of some crook who got killed by the police when he was arrested. I watched it as it happened. Saw the full footage on Facebook. To be honest, horrified, I just sat here and waited for the authorities to arrest the police which they did after firing them from their jobs.
Within moments an edited version of the video was flying around the internet and everyone, everyone was horrified. Within moments I watched the footage of the same policeman shoot two unarmed white Brits. Why was he on the streets…thankfully black lives matter enough or more, so that this nasty policeman is finally stopped.
But it wasn’t enough…the press wanted blood and they got it. America in flames.
My terminology – In the UK the ethnic grouping South Asian is generally brown skinned people from Afghanistan, Indonesia, India or Pakistan. I’m using brown and black as descriptive terms same as white is a descriptor for me within our administration.
The news that covid19 would somehow affect others worse than white people just in England didn’t surprise me. The same way that, in England, diabetes, obesity and heart disease are also seen as not affecting white people as much or as hard. In London resources are spent on who shouts loudest and tells the best lies. These spurious reports and news articles just aid fraud.
Having looked at the figures, from the NOS, I’ve said I doubt the truthfulness of the press but as not all the figures are available to view, so I’ll just try and GUESS what they are implying by running this (LIE) story about covid19 sufferers being non white:
White British people are genetically more capable of fighting off covid19 than white people in other countries?
White British people are stronger than black, brown people and foreign white people as they are less prone to diabetes, rickets, heart disease and therefore any corona virus that hits the island?
Or, perhaps they’re suggesting that ‘white people’ are knocking off black and brown people in NHS hospitals?
Or is it that the corona virus outbreak was designed genetically to just attack black and brown people by white british people??? It must annoy the press that white people get ill at all from covid19…after all Boris made the news when he got it, I jest.
What is our media doing and why?
For me, journalist lost their way some time ago. The constant muddling up of data between UK and US…tarring us all with the same brush. And not a truthful brush.
I find myself constantly triggered by the need to defend myself against the onslaught of negativity about white people being racist. Britain being accused of being racist makes my blood boil.
Ever since I was a little kid…the constant clawing at my emotional wellbeing being told because of my skin I am evil, I have no right to be annoyed if a black or brown person hurts me because that is what whites deserve.
Because I’m white I’ve got to suck it up and move on…so in my measure that means, so does everyone else. Equality right?
However, the reality is, none of us can move on. Because anyone can beat a stick because we let them.. by being uneducated about our past.
I verbally fight my corner but the onslaught is becoming too constant…the ignorance against whites is building and because many whites believe, for whatever reason, ‘we deserve it’ they do nothing.
Well Britain isn’t racist. Most of our hospital staff are foreign or non UK white british…so when black and browns go into hospital they are most likely being treated by black and browns as most of our docs are South Asian…amongst the white docs there are eastern Europeans, American, Russians, Ukrainians and Chinese doctors here, they train all here and often go into the NHS hospitals as junior doctors.
Most UK white brits are unlikely to afford medical school.
Regarding the plight of black and browns being more susceptible to diabetes, heart disease etc…there is no scientific evidence to back this up. None, the NHS did a private little study with no controls, of twenty people and from the results of that they changed all the treatment criteria and test thresholds.
There is one large study done in America which does declare a slight rise for one race in heart disease. The Americans call them Asian…we call them Chinese. Yet the NHS still uses this data to give preferential treatments to a ethnic grouping we call ‘South Asian’ basically funds which should be going to stop the rise in deaths from heart disease of Han Chinese is going to ‘brown people’ because of this.
Our NHS is racist …the doctors in place perhaps aren’t so capable as Dr Peter Duffy was fired from his job for saying…bad doctors are bad doctors regardless of where they come from. We should not protect them just because of their race.
England has had a huge amount of deaths during this pandemic.
We don’t need race riots on top…regardless of how much the pharma companies are paying the journalists to stir up trouble and get people out on the streets…stay calm and stay home.
Most people are not racist. Most people see each other as human…we just live with discriminative strategies designed to divide us.
