This weekend is UK Black Pride 2010. There are many black singers, speakers and DJs taking part (and a couple of token whites, like Peter Tatchell). As you can see from their website masthead, it’s a great opportunity to get up and boogie like a mad thing, if you are black and, er, gay.
The Pink News reports,
Phyllis Opoku-Gyimah, UK Black Pride director, said: “I’m thrilled that Stonewall has formalised its long standing support for our community-led initiative. The help they have gifted us will help to ensure that we put on a strong event that gives space to non-white LGBT people to showcase the best of who we are, as we see ourselves, rather than how others choose to portray us.
These days, non-white (my emphasis, above) includes Hispanic folk. Funny that, because when I was young, they were white. I guess they serve a better purpose to certain people when they are reclassified as ‘black’ even though they are nothing of the sort. It means there are fewer of us evil ‘whites’.
The list of sponsors is interesting. Stonewall have stumped up to help fund this ‘gay apartheid’. It seems strange that they are encouraging division amongst their ranks. What isn’t strange is that the TUC and some of the big unions are sponsors. It also comes as no surprise that the Metropolitan Police are sponsoring the event.
Of course, the name of the game is dividing us. I remember listening to a programme on Radio 4 a few years ago about this club for the blind, gay, Jewish community of North London. I thought that surely there can’t be any more than a couple of dozen of them. The government would be thrilled if we could all be reduced into even smaller ‘communities’, ideally consisting of one person, so that we would never be tempted to exchange opinions or concerns with anyone outside our own tiny peculiar clan.
People must stop falling for all this divisive nonsense being carried out in the name of equality, diversity and ‘community cohesion’.
And ‘pride’ cometh before destruction.
