‘Forgive me, Father, for I am white’: Kier Starmer absolves himself of the sin of whiteness with unconscious bias training

‘Forgive me, Father, for I am white’: Kier Starmer absolves himself of the sin of whiteness with unconscious bias training, by Frank Furedi.

Sir Keir Starmer has passed his unconscious bias training, his spokesman reveals.

The British Labour leader enthusiastically prostrated himself before the gods of woke to purge his soul of racism, but this is not harmless virtue-signaling, it is promotion of dangerous indoctrination. …

In reality, anyone who is prepared to humiliate themselves and listen to a moral entrepreneur lecture them about their bias and unwitting racism can pass their unconscious bias training.

All you have to do is nod your head, acknowledge that you, along with all white people, are unwittingly racist and confess to a time when you used your white privilege, and you will get your course certificate. As Starmer no doubt understands, what’s important about the ritual of unconscious bias training is your willingness to participate and subjugate yourself to a few hours of humiliation. …

A willingness to be humiliated indicates that you are prepared to be reborn as a re-educated white person. It is not a particularly expensive ritual and in return you are rewarded with a certificate that indicates that you are a person of virtue. …

Unconscious bias is the original sin of white people. It implies that even if you think you are anti-racist, you are not free from your unconscious biases. Race entrepreneurs argue that they know better than you what is really going on inside your head. Therefore, it does not matter what you think or say, they get to decide what’s on your mind.

Top-grade virtue-signalling, and really rather racist (in the traditional sense of that word).

This man would be leader of Britain — yet he doesn’t have the wit to avoid being hoodwinked by race hustlers. Imagine if he had to negotiate with hard nosed realists who wanted to take advantage of Britain, like, say, the Chinese.
