UK Nursery School Teachers Turn-In Three-Year-Olds for Racist Remarks
By Jerry A. Kane
Teachers in the United Kingdom have been turning in primary and nursery school children as young as three-years-old to local authorities for alleged “racist” remarks.
The UK’s Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 compels public authorities, including schools and churches, to monitor children and log the details of racist abuse incidents on to databases.
“More than a quarter of a million children have been accused of racism since it became law.”—Munira Mirza, a senior advisor to London Mayor Boris Johnson
Since the Act has gone into effect, schools have been investigating every playground squabble, while teachers have been busy filing racist abuse reports in the database—even instances where the children were too young to understand what they were saying or the alleged victim was not offended.
“[T]he definition of racism can be taken too far, especially with young children who clearly don’t understand the connotation behind the words.”—Martin Ward, deputy general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders
Each year as many as 40,000 youngsters are being wrongly branded as racists and disciplined for racist insults when they don’t even know what the terms mean. In one instance a child was severely disciplined for calling two other children a “chocolate bar.” In another instance, a child was punished for calling a boy “white trash.”
“There are a small number of cases of sustained targeted bullying … But most of these ‘racist incidents’ are just kids falling out. They don’t need re-educating out of their prejudice – they and their teachers need to be left alone.”—Adrian Hart, author of the report The Myth of Racist Kids
The Act’s anti-racist policies have created divisions where none had previously existed and have turned routine playground quarrels into major racial issues.
“[The anti-racist interventions have created] an absolutely awful atmosphere around the school. Children who used to play beautifully together are starting to separate along racial lines.”—UK teacher in an interview with researchers
The Act was written to curb racism and “promote good relations between persons of different racial groups.” And of course, like all good government programs, has turned a manageable problem into a full-blown catastrophe, once again proving Quinn’s Law that “liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.”
“The more we seek to measure racism, the more it seems to grow.”—Munira Mirza
The Manifesto Club is calling for an end to the compulsory reporting of racist incidents arguing that anti-racist interventions have increased divisions between white and black children by forcing them to view the world through the filter of race. However, school officials remain undeterred in their mission to cleanse the UK of racism.
“If racist bullying is not dealt with in schools, then this will send a powerful message to children that racism is acceptable – not only in schools but in society as a whole”—Diana Johnson, Schools Minister
In sending forth an army of diversity missionaries to raise the specter of racism in the receptive minds of primary and nursery school students, school officials are guilty of proselytizing a particular political worldview and creating racial angst and tensions where none had existed. Consequently, God hath reserved hell’s deepest circle for such despicable people.
