280K British Children Accused Of Racism

We almost overlooked this latest development in our post-racial world, from the UK’s Daily Mail:

Three-year-olds being labelled bigots by teachers as 250,000 children accused of racism

By Laura Clark
23 September 2010

Teachers are being forced to report children as young as three to the authorities for using alleged ‘racist’ language, it was claimed last night.

Munira Mirza, a senior advisor to London Mayor Boris Johnson, said schools were being made to spy on nursery age youngsters by the Race Relations Act 2000.

More than a quarter of a million children have been accused of racism since it became law, she said.

Writing in Prospect magazine, she said: ‘The more we seek to measure racism, the more it seems to grow.

For the record, Prospect is described as a left of center magazine. In 2005 its readers selected Noam Chomsky as the world’s foremost intellectual.

‘Teachers are now required to report incidents of racist abuse among children as young as three to local authorities, resulting in a massive increase of cases and reinforcing the perception that we need an army of experts to manage race relations from cradle to grave.

‘Does this heightened awareness of racism help to stamp it out? Quite the opposite. It creates a climate of suspicion and anxiety.’

The Act compelled 43,000 public authorities, including schools and churches, ‘to promote good relations between persons of different racial groups’. Details of the incidents are logged on databases.

Teachers are allowed to report racism even if the alleged ‘victim’ was not offended or if the child does not understand what they were saying.

Freedom of Information replies obtained by civil liberties group the Manifesto Club show that between 2002 and 2009, 280,000 incidents have been reported.

Being three years old is no excuse for committing a hate crime.

    Ain’t it odd how witch hunts always seem to turn out that way?

      That’s the comment that jumped out at me as well.

      What did they expect? If you micro inspect anything you can find anything you want if you are willing to twist reality to fit the search target.

      Who appointed these so called “experts” anyway…oh, wait…They did.

      Not surprised this came out of the UK…but remember we are only a few years behind them…Look for a 3 year old bigot/racist coming to a pre-school near you soon!

      Hey, when your only tool is a hammer, pretty damn soon everything starts looking like a nail…

    When will the teachers have to begin reporting anti-government behaviour by the children?

  3. NoNeoCommies says:

    The true bigots (and 3 year olds) are the ones forcing this stupidity on us because they think minorities are too stupid or weak to get through life without government help.

    In Britain, children are taught not to sing ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ and tinkered with other children’s nursery rhymes:

    “TRADITIONAL nursery rhymes are being rewritten at nursery schools to avoid causing offence to children.

    Instead of singing “Baa baa, black sheep” as generations of children have learnt to do, toddlers in Oxfordshire are being taught to sing “Baa baa, rainbow sheep”. ”

    In keeping with the new approach, teachers at the nurseries have reportedly also changed the ending of Humpty Dumpty so as not to upset the children and dropped the seven dwarfs from the title of Snow White. ”

    This article is a must read:

    Why black sheep are barred and Humpty can’t be cracked


    I have family in Toronto, Canada where children can be yanked out of school and put into remedial Culture Sensitivity Training classes until the kids spit out what the politically correct pablum. The adult parents of said child(ren) also must attend the same classes. Also – if an adult were to say something deemed politically incorrect, you cannot return to your job until you attend those same classes and can prove attendance – and have changed your attitude.

    My sister and brother in law says conversations are stilted and shallow, and people are terrified to inadvertently say something someone will take offense with.

    (Mind you, there will always be someone, somewhere who will be ‘offended’ with something…. like muslims who take offense with soft ice cream swirls, piggy banks and the non-muslim world at large.)

    This is exactly the sort of thing one comes to expect from the injection of Liberalism into public schools.

    It would be interesting to learn whether any of the 280,000 young racists were nonwhites? Somehow I doubt it.

    It seems that the entire purpose of the UK Equality Commission and the equality laws is to isolate and humiliate the indigenous British population, to make them targets of hate, and to silence anyone who dares to oppose the program of mass immigration.

    As such it is a method of censorship and repression, a means to avoid political debate and the search for truth. How very Orwellian that the schools should become the Left’s instruments for the suppression of thinking.

    I suppose it was only a matter of time before they reached down into the nursery school level and began taking names. Who knows what forbidden thoughts may lurk in the minds of three year-olds?

      You can only be counted a racist if you are white Anglo, Petronius.
      While non-whites practice racism in the open, a blind eye is cast towards them……just because!

  6. Right of the People says:

    It sounds like the Brits have gone beyond socialism to National Socialism (NAZI). What’s next, will the kiddies be encouraged to turn in Mummy and Daddy if they say naughty things at home?

    From what hushpuppy posted Canada’s already there. I haven’t noticed traveling to Quebec just over the border but on the other hand they all speak French so who the hell can understand anyway.

  7. untrainable says:

    They’re just trying to get in all the socialist clap-trap in as early as they can. With 3 year-olds they don’t have to compete with other subjects like
    English (soon to be abolished as an official language because it offends people who don’t speak it),
    Math (wouldn’t want to offend lil muslims by showing them up in a subject that they invented),
    Literature (which will also soon be banned in favor of an entirely muslim koran readin’ class. We all know that’s all they really need)
    Science (because anything that’s not in the koran should not be taught), or
    Phys-Ed (because other than learning how to wrap yourself in dynamite and wander through an airport without sweating, why would you need phys-ed)

    Is it an understatement to say that some leftists need a bogeyman? If they can’t tar adults they will go after children.

    Do they still allow girls to go to school? Sharia law, ya know.

    Jane Elliott’s Blue Eyes / Brown Eyes experiment was to prove that white children were racist. To me, it proves white people have a strong sense of INJUSTICE, not willing discriminators. And no one ever questions Elliott’s horrifically unethical tactics to bring about her conclusions. http://janeelliott.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=J&Product_Code=JE-26&Category_Code=VV

    Anderson Cooper did a “study” trying to prove how racist white children are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PnTUvdZpGY

    There are never studies about black kids and their racial stereotypes.

    When black people run around as thugs on t.v. in music, and in reality, how can anyone have but a negative outlook of them, that is how they are marketing themselves. . .

      “When black people run around as thugs on t.v. in music, and in reality, how can anyone have but a negative outlook of them, that is how they are marketing themselves”

      Couldn’t agree more. Moreover, most black MEN I have met in my life also agree. I don’t dislike black people as a group, but I have issues with the stereotypical thug/gangsta whatever you call it. I am sorry, but it is not racist to dislike violent rap music fans, stupid clothes, drug dealing, murder and violent crimes lauded as admirable, or profuse use of the N word (see, I should be allowed to say that word in this context, but even here among friends I am afraid to). Those dislikes are my judgement calls. Now, when you choose to dress and act in a manner I don’t like, and intentionally model yourself after a stereotype. don’t be surprised if you are judged because of it. I will not deny for a minute that when I see a black MAN dressed sensibly, speaking articulately and projecting the image that anyone who used the N word in his presence would face his wrath no matter what race they were, I have more respect for him initially, just as I expect I am judged differently in uniform than wearing my filthy working around the house clothes. Of course, it is all moot, as I try for all I am worth to do what The Rev. Dr. King said we should, and judge by character not color.

    This situation truly scares me – it is so insidious, so underhanded – that it can skate through – because there are so many parents who think they are doing the right thing for their children by getting them into ‘school’ early to give them an advantage – when all they are doing is opening their children up for indoctrination sooner.

    People would be up in arms if this was a White Supremacist attitude being acculturated into their children at such an early age – but seem to take no mind to their children (and by extension – them) as being called racist.

    I weep for the World – we are being taken over – by hate, fear and accusations all coming from ‘special interests groups’ – that make no bones about their hatred for anyone not them – and willingness to lie and distort to win – how did Malcolm X say – ‘…which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary’. Be afraid.

    Examples left out were most likely children speaking of fear of muslims trying to bomb their transportation, schools, or a relative in the military.

    The parents need to request to see their childs records so they can dispute & try and keep anything off it.

    I guarantee you, the schools are keeping alot of the propaganda, question sheets, assignments in children files, parents aren’t even aware are being kept.
