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