    Britain’s black power movement is at risk of being forgotten, say historians

    The Cambridge academic Robin Bunce said: “There is a fundamental danger of erasing the very notion of a struggle at all. I’ve been researching this for four and a half years and there have been so many occasions when people have said to me: ‘There was no black struggle in Britain. You’re thinking of South Africa or America.’“

    The narrative that feeds it is the one that Britain is the utopia of fair play. We have such a commitment to individual rights, we have such a commitment to common sense and decency that there is no systematic racism in Britain.”

    Bunce said it was not just politicians, but wider British society that would rather not dwell on the less palatable.

    white women should hm….watch how they talk about men of color and esp black men ….considering their woman ancestors without a doubt made life living hell for my ancestors and that they still uphold this white supremacy by existing. and yet they think it’s…fine to perpetuate hatred against these disadvantaged men of color because they’re women and these underprivileged men are clearly “just like every man”. like no, it’s more complex than that…you’re still white, you’ve disenfranchised countless of races, your ancestors had my ancestors lynched and beaten and mutilated and swinging from trees for even looking in their direction, like lol. anyway white women are demons and they will hide behind their feminity to get out of their racism and it’s about time we stop letting this happen and giving them a platform to be racist and calling it “progressive” or “feminist”.

    btw this is okay to reblog! esp if you’re a white woman
