The whining just never stops with these people. Unlike in America, where most blacks are descendants of slaves who were brought there against their will, every single black person living in Britain is there by choice, either their own, or that of their parents. No black person in Britain was forced to go there against their will. They all willingly chose to do so, because they wanted an opportunity to create a better life for themselves than they would have had back home in whichever black majority country they came from (it doesn’t matter which one, they all have much lower living standards than Britain does). You would think they would be grateful to have been giving the opportunity to live in a much better country, but no, they always find something stupid to whine about.
Universities across Britain might be causing psychological distress to black students because they’re forced to learn about mostly white Europeans, the National Union of Students (NUS) leader has said.
NUS president Malia Bouattia, herself a black woman of Algerian heritage, believes that as most higher education is based on “Eurocentric” subjects, non-white undergraduates end up lagging behind.
The reason why it’s so “Eurocentric” is because most historical accomplishments, discoveries, inventions, etc, is of European origin, either directly, or from European derived societies such as America and Canada. That’s not to say that other parts of the world haven’t contributed as well, but these contributions are fairly minute compared to the contributions of Europe and North America.
Her comments follow an announcement from the UK government that universities need to increase their numbers of black and minority ethnic students fivefold by 2020.
Why do they “need” this? On the one hand, we’re always told that race is just skin pigmentation, and there are no other significant differences between us. At the same time, they’re demanding a drastic increase in racial diversity because we “need” it. How does this make sense? Why exactly is an increase in ethnic minorities attending university a necessity?
In an interview with the Guardian, Bouattia attacked how ‘white’ British university curricula can be, saying: “When we look at the incredibly Eurocentric curriculum, where people don’t see themselves in what they’re studying, and can’t relate to it, and feel that their European counterparts hit the ground running, they can’t see themselves advancing in the subjects.”
Then why did you choose to study at a British university then? If it upsets you so much attending a university which focuses more on its own culture and other European cultures, then why not go to some African university instead? You would feel a lot more at home, and we wouldn’t have to put up with your pathetic whining and demands. Everybody wins.
She added that on top of the “vast amounts of debt” many students have accumulated by the time they reach higher education, the lack of relatable topics of study available could be “psychologically destructive.”
Again, go to an African university to study “relatable topic” then. Why should a British university which you chose to attend, change its curriculum to accommodate your specific demands you arrogant and self-centered child?
The 28 year-old is the first black Muslim woman to lead the student body. She has previously talked about feeling estranged from her studies after being abused by online trolls and Islamophobes.
I don’t condone online harassment myself, but at the same time, my main sympathies are with the indigenous British people, whose culture and way of life is in the crosshairs. As I’ve said time and time again, multiculturalism does not work. Why not just admit that it has failed and allow the British people to study what’s relevant to them in a British university, and allow Muslim/Black people to study what’s relevant to them in their own countries of origin? This whole thing of trying to change European institutions to accommodate the needs and desires of everybody is never going to work. Changes might satisfy the minorites, but in doing so, you run the risk of upsetting the indigenous majorities, whose needs should come first in their own countries.
Independent think tank Social Market director Emran Mian told the Times that “while senior academic ranks may still be insufficiently diverse, the representation of minority perspectives in UK higher education should be improving.”
“About 14 percent of academic staff in UK universities identify as being from a black or minority ethnic background and almost 17 percent of students,” he added.
So that would mean that about 86% of students and 83% of academic staff are white then. But according to the 2011 census results2011 census results (the most recent available), the British population was 87.17% white. In the five years since, it has probably seen a slight decline in the population percentage, meaning an 86% representation of students, is in line with their population percentage, and 83% staff representation, is actually slightly lower than their population percentage. So in that case, why is there such a need for an increase in minorities at university level, when they’re already been represented quite fairly in relation to their population percentage?
Bouattia has been previously involved in controversy when she was accused of anti-Semitism after arguing that the University of Birmingham, which has a large Jewish student body, was a “Zionist outpost.” She denied the charges.
Yeah funny how that works, isn’t it? In the supposedly racist, white supremacist, British society, people like this are free to criticise the white British population to their heart’s content. Say something bad about the Jews, and suddenly it’s a problem. I wonder why that could be?
