We were wrong to try to ban racism out of existence, says former equality chief

Ahhhh…. Music to my ears.

A former equality chief has branded his years working to stamp out racial discrimination as ‘utterly wrong’.

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Writer and broadcaster Trevor Phillips said efforts made under the Blair government turned anti-racism into an ‘ugly new doctrine’.

Mr Phillips is the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and has waged a 30-year campaign to tackle issues around discrimination and equality.

In an upcoming Channel 4 documentary, called Things We Won’t Say About Race That Are True, he says attempts to stop prejudice instead encouraged abuse and endangered lives as well as contributed to the rise of parties like Ukip.

‘Campaigners like me seriously believed that if we could prevent people expressing prejudiced ideas then eventually they would stop thinking them.

‘But now I’m convinced we were utterly wrong.’

Mr Phillips, a Labour party member, says anti-racism began with good intentions but turned into ‘thought control’.

He says the London 2005 bombing by British Muslims, forced him to do rethink his views.

Now, he insists that only a willingness to talk more openly about race, despite risk of causing offence, will help those in need.

I love this. It’s so nice to see an opponent of ours admit that antiwhites engage in thought control and that disregarding the possibility of offending someone is the only way to go. I could have told this guy that! This is all so evident that I can’t think of much more to say, but I’m sure I’ll gloat over this article for my podcast on Wednesday for Renegade Broadcasting. Stay tuned!
