Racism in the British Ruling Classses

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:23 pm by Aleksan

Was Churchill a racist? The fact is that most men and women from his background were homophobic and racist in the 50s, and before that. They were ignorant of things we now understand more clearly, and prejudiced culturally throughout the private education system.

I remember – we were told at my public school, in about 1959 that we were to go out after school and be rulers of the British Empire all over the world. I was horrified at the time, and still am – the whole private education system was institutionally racist.

I hope it is not so now, bot in reality this country has a long way to go if we are to have equal opportunities for the BAME community, women and the poor.
