Question Time With Yasmin Alibhai-Brown…

The Question:
What, I wonder, was the poor mite thinking and feeling?
The Answer:
Not so long ago, I sat in a nursery class in Wandsworth, South London, where a teacher was conducting a test to discover how the children felt about their race.

She asked each youngster to hug the doll in the classroom that looked most like them.
Naomi, a black girl, at once grabbed a blonde, blue-eyed doll and wouldn’t let go.

Tears rolled down her face when it was gently taken from her.
Well, Yaz, she was probably thinking ‘Why are these big bullies taking my dolly away?!’

I can’t be bothered to query why a nursery teacher feels she has carte blanche to use her classroom as a sociology lab, or to fisk the rest of this pile of cack, not least because Laban Tall has done such a splendid job already, and Tim Worstall has pointed out that this isn’t exactly a ‘problem’ confined to just the asian or black community. The Grim Reaper and Timdog at 'Make It Stop!' have also weighed in.

But this is such arrant nonsense that it’s a wonder she didn’t spontaneously combust when she typed it:
…that every woman of colour has an important social and cultural history that cannot simply be bleached away or denied by the use of hair straighteners.
What utter bilge.

But typical of someone who never sees an individual, but rather, sees a member of an identity group…

How does Yazza define black? Does she reach for those apartheid manuals and start measuring curliness of hair and breadth of nostril?

The woman is the worst racist I can think of. Well, OK she's running neck-and-neck with Darcus Howe

Shit for brains like that should not be allowed near toddlers. Toddlers of that age have not one clue about theirs or others race.

Dear God.

Do these people not realise that there would be a lot LESS racism if they didn't bang on about it all the time.

To quote the great Morgan Freeman -:

"I'm going to stop calling you a white man, and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man."

The woman's a professional racist. What Beyonce does with the colour of her hair is her concern and no one else's. She is not obliged to provide a racist role model. Good for her doing as she pleases.

WV - COLOSS, no kidding.

Lynne said...

Yazz the Spazz - yaaaaaawn. Nothing the silly cow does or says is of any relevance to me so I refuse to pay her much attention because she doesn't merit it.

That stupid teacher, on the other hand, needs a bloody good kicking. Who the hell does she think she is? She is supposed to be there to educate not racially/socially manipulate. No wonder kids leave school as clueless as the day they started.

I believe that every woman of pallor has an important social and cultural history that cannot simply be tanned away or denied by the use of hair curlers.

Katabasis said...

This is one of the most offensive race-related articles I have ever read in the MSM. And it is offensive because it is so obviously focused on creating a problem where none exists. Not to mention her own anti-white racist sentiments.

I'm glad she has received an almighty kicking in the comments.

The Heresiarch said...

Looking at that photo of Beyoncé, it was most probably a bright flashbulb rather than any attempt on her part to "go white". Though it's no-one's business but hers anyway. As for the blonde wig/hair extensions - is it worse for a black woman to dye her hair blonde than for a white woman to?

YAB has good things to say, occasionally, on subjects like Islamists and burqas. But pieces like this merely undermine her credibility.

Foxy Brown said...

We've not heard the last of this subject, as pet token ethnic female at the Guardian, Hannah Pool, has not yet written a piece for the should-be-used-to-line-cat-litter-trays weekday supplement.

I have a message for Yasmin Ali-fucking-Baba-Brown ..

Shut the fuck up, you whining old slapper .. you're the biggest Racist in the UK and you're rapidly becoming increasingly boring .. Surely even you must recognise yourself as a crackpot, when even Labour MP's have a go at you ?

Besides which .. who (besides you )gives a monkey's fuck what Beyonce Whatsherface does anyway ?

"The woman is the worst racist I can think of. Well, OK she's running neck-and-neck with Darcus Howe"

Probably the only competition she's ever likely to win...

"Shit for brains like that should not be allowed near toddlers. "

Yup, I'm with Lynne - it's no more than one expects from Yazz, but that teacher should be struck off.

"YAB has good things to say, occasionally, on subjects like Islamists and burqas."

Unfortunately, in demanding the burkha be banned, she just proves herself part of the problem, and not the solution.

Woman on a Raft said...

So having been rebuffed or threatened wiv the rozzers for trying to talk to stranger's children in the park, she's now resorted to getting in to a school where she has managed to over-impress a teacher.

I don't like the CRB system, but it stops just one Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, then I might have to revise my opinion.

'YAB has good things to say, occasionally'

No she doesn't - ever.
