If you looked online or in the newspapers today the British media picked up a story which should strike black and ethnic minorities as strange regarding research by Professor David Coleman, of Oxford University who said that whites would become a minority by 2066 in their own country because of immigration and the migration of thousands of white Britons abroad. The British media always boasts that Britain is a multicultural society and tolerant, so why the obsession with keeping Britain white? Why is this even a news story?
There is something hypocritical about a country which boast about being tolerant and having a successful multicultural society only to publish yearly headlines about the soaring birth rates of non whites and the impending doomsday news stories which tell white readers that Britain will become a non white country in a few decades.
Is this really the sign of a country that has embraced people from other races, cultures and religion? No.
Yet today the British media decided that research by Professor David Coleman, of Oxford University regarding the racial demographic changes which will take place in Britain within the next few decades should be major news. Why?
Professor Coleman said that immigration levels and the number of whites migrating to other countries will mean that whites will be a minority in their own country within the next 50 years.
According to the MailOnline, professor Coleman said, “The transition…would represent an enormous change to national identity – cultural, political, economic and religious.” (Tim Shipman: 18 November)
What is disturbing about the language used by the professor and mainstream British media is that immigrants and all non whites are portrayed as an outside force damaging British identity and culture; but what is more sinister about the usage of language in this report is that the term immigration is used to describe all non whites, even those who are born here.
In the Daily Mail report it says, “…the white British population, defined as English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish-born citizens, would become the minority after about 2066.
Towards the end of the article it says, “The ethnic minority population expanded by almost two million between 2001 and 2007, from 13 per cent to nearly 16 per cent of the total.” From this perspective all non whites are seen as a threat to the white British population, identity and culture.
The Mail report then goes on to state that over half of Britain’s population growth is by immigrants, and that foreign born mothers account for a quarter of births in England and Wales.
This is hostile language cloaked behind research and academia, it is in effect racism at its ugliest. It is the language of racist eugenics which dealt with preserving the white race and white civilisation.
The headlines says it all. The Express.co.uk, home of the Daily Mail and Sunday Express reads, “WHITE BRITONS ‘A MINORITY BY 2066“. The Daily Mail online had this more threatening headline, “By 2066, white Britons ‘will be outnumbered’ if immigration continues at current rates“. The Sun headline reads, “White Britons a minority by ’66“. This is enhanced by a side story about German Chancellor Angela Merkel who said that multiculturalism has failed in Germany.
A read of all these articles will send a clear message to all black and minority ethnic communities in Britain. They are not welcome in this country and they are seen as a threat to white Britain.
It is disturbing to say the least that the British media casually reports on stories which the extreme far-right use on a daily basis to defend their white supremacist ideology, and few people bat an eyelid.
Stories such as this reminds black and minority ethnic communities that white extremism is not just the domain of the poor white working classes, but also the professional, well educated white person like professor Coleman; and there are many more just like him who hold these extremist views.
