This is an old article, but it seems like a good one to share.
Let’s face it: Britain has an ethnic problem. Its patchwork of peoples, once the envy of the world, has become frayed, its harmony devolving into anger and xenophobia. And, we should be honest, the problem is rooted in one ethnic group – one large but troubled people who are failing to integrate into modern postindustrial society.
Hmm, I wonder which group could be failing to integrate.
While some of its more ambitious members have found success in politics and business, this community is falling behind educationally and economically as a whole, self-segregating into ethnic enclaves, becoming increasingly prone to violence, rioting and substance abuse. More troubling, in recent years they have begun to vote for ethnic extremist parties that threaten to undermine basic British values.
Sounds like the above group alright.
Who are these people? The English. Once a tolerant, welcoming people who thrived in scholarship and commerce, they have become a drag on British society.
Wow so according to this guy, the English people are somehow wrong for pursuing their own ethnic interests in the land that they and their ancestors built, and which they are indigenous to. What kind of fucked up logic is that?
They have become Britain’s problem group. Government figures show that “white English” students are now outperformed in school results by British children of Bangladeshi, Ghanaian, Indian, Sierra Leonean, Chinese, Sri Lankan, Vietnamese and Nigerian ancestry.
The link above just goes to an old Guardian article which states that these Ethnic groups are apparently outperforming British kids in school. The actual report isn’t shown, so I can neither confirm or deny how accurate this is.
This was not always the case: A decade ago, it seemed as if Britons with darker skin colours were trapped behind the English in education and income. But it’s all changed: In 2009, Bangladeshi-British kids soared ahead of the English; black African kids caught up with them in 2010 and Pakistani kids are on course to pass them this year.
Well extra help from private tutors definitely pays dividends.
Unlike the island’s other ethnic groups, low-income members of the English community seem determined to stay poor and uneducated. Britain’s Department of Education has published figures listing how many low-income children achieved passing grades in secondary school in 2012. Sixty per cent of black African and Bangladeshi students did, about half of Pakistanis and black Caribbean kids did, 40 per cent of Indians did – and only three in 10 “white British” (mainly English) kids did, putting them at the bottom of the list.
Again, he doesn’t actually link to the report itself, so we can’t confirm if those figures are accurate or not. Although I would like to point out that it’s interesting how he’s only comparing the poorest members of each ethnic group to each other. I wonder why he doesn’t compare each ethnic group as a whole to each other, to find out the percentages that pass then. It’s very misleading to write an article complaining about all English people, when he only talks about an alleged issue with the poorest of them.
On top of this – or perhaps because of it – the English are now self-segregating into isolated, and sometimes impoverished, uni-ethnic enclaves. Some 600,000 white English people moved out of the mixed-ethnicity districts of London between 2001 and 2011 for less integrated areas, while other ethnic groups moved into areas of higher diversity.
“HOW DARE THESE ENGLISH PEOPLE WANT TO LIVE WITH OTHER PEOPLE JUST LIKE THEMSELVES!!!”
If so many people are desperately fleeing diversity, then is that not a sign that it isn’t a good thing? You can be sure that this prick probably doesn’t live in a very diverse neighbourhood himself, all while he lectures others for trying to do the same.
The English are more prone than other groups to drop out of school early, to live on welfare benefits, to become unhealthy and to engage in crime. In measures of alcohol abuse, “trouble with police while drinking” and lawbreaking, they outrank any other ethnic group in Britain (except the Irish). Riots led by ethnic English youths tore the cities of England apart in the summer of 2011, while ethnic Turks, Bangladeshis and Africans guarded shops and became heroes for rescuing people from the riots. There is a constant sense that the poor English are about to break out in violence.
It might have something to do with sheer numbers. There are more people of English and Irish descent in Britain, than there are of Africans, Turks, Asians etc (at least for now) so it stands to reason that in “real numbers” they may very well riot more. However, if you were to compare on a “per capita” basis, I would bet that other groups commit far more trouble in proportion to their population sizes, especially when you bring in other serious crimes such as rapes, child molestation, and terrorism as well.
This was one thing when it was all kept inside the English community, but it is now beginning to affect Britain’s future. Growing numbers of the ethnic English are casting votes for the extremist UK Independence Party, which seeks to end immigration and pull Britain out of Europe. The party seems poised to capture a third of Britain’s seats in next year’s European Parliament elections.
UKIP are extremists now apparently -_-
They are unlikely to win seats in national elections – they tend to spoil the Tory vote – but their threat has caused the English community’s traditional party, the Conservatives, to become less moderate. Prime Minister David Cameron has recently taken a weird turn into anti-immigrant nastiness, denying benefits to newcomers (even though immigrants rarely claim unemployment benefits) and buying into an implausible media theory about Romanians and Bulgarians flooding the country, all to appease the ethnic English.
Why should newcomers be entitled to benefits, when they haven’t contributed anything to the pot? And if they really do so rarely claim benefits anyway, then why does it matter if they’re denied them? If they aren’t going to claim anyway, then they aren’t going to be affected by this decision. If they work for a while and then become unemployed later, they should be as entitled as anyone else to claim benefits, because they would have paid taxes through working at that point. Otherwise, fuck them. They don’t deserve anything just for showing up inside Britain’s borders.
These xenophobic attitudes are harming Britain’s economy. As the Economist recently wrote, the Prime Minister’s pledge to drive immigration below 100,000 a year has done serious damage – steep visa fees, quotas and restrictions have driven away foreign students, educated elites and investors, while many British companies are moving their operations overseas, where it’s easier to hire the best workers. And it is causing a fiscal crisis – according to the Office for Budget Responsibility, immigration rates will need to double if national debt is to be lowered to half its level (and UKIP’s immigration freeze would double public debt).
Britain needs more of these super geniuses in order to maintain their position in the world. Sure, the countries they come from are often miserable hellholes which they are seemingly unable to improve but somehow, they’re needed to make Britain great.
Don’t get me wrong about the English. I know quite a few English people who are rather decent (including my dear old Mum and Gran), and their culture is not without its charm. But they need help. Ethnic English numbers are growing, and if they’re allowed to gain any more influence in British society, they could be trouble.
And this is where it ends. It’s essentially satirising what people say about non-indigenous groups increasing in number and gaining influence, except it completely misses the point entirely as to why this is an issue. There is nothing wrong with Ethnic English growing in numbers in England, because England is their homeland, and they should be the ones to decide its path. England’s culture and values should be a representation of the Ethnic English people. If other, non-indigenous groups don’t like that, then they always have their own homelands, which they can return to quite freely if they choose. There is always a land where their cultures and values can be practiced and this isn’t under threat by the English people living in England. On the other hand, if Ethnic English people are surpassed in England by another ethnic group, who wish to impose their culture and values on England, then they have nowhere escape to. They have to submit to the will of the other group.
The difference really is quite obvious.
