I had thought that what I was doing was innocent, normal. But now I realise, to my eternal shame, that I was actually supporting wicked racism, albeit inadvertently. By shopping at Tesco, I was rendering myself equivalent to those who stood by and watched the Nazi atrocities, but did nothing.
Or at least, so says Trevor "untermenschen" Phillips (the man responsible for promoting 'equality' in Britain, by which is meant, turning the native population into second-class citizens, and calling us racist if we object), for whom supermarkets are the new frontline in the battle against 'racism':
Supermarkets have expressed concern after Britain's race watchdog said they should be forced to recruit more ethnic minority [staff] by positive discrimination.Now, I don't know why Trev has picked a fight with the supermarkets. He certainly hasn't produced any evidence to support his assertion that they are hotbeds of racial discrimination. Indeed, I don't know about you, but I don't think that non-whites are exactly under-represented among the employees of supermarkets. In the whole of London I cannot recall ever having been into a supermarket where the overwhelming majority of staff were not either black or Asian. The Tesco store I go to has no white staff, the Sainsbury's store one. Given that Fulham is one of London's whiter areas, I hardly think that this reflects the "make-up of the local community". Perhaps I should write to Trev, and ask him to pop round, and order them to sack some of their existing, competent, staff, and hire the first white layabout who comes their way.
Trevor Phillips said retailers should have new powers making it is easier to attract employees to reflect the make-up of their local communities.
The new Commission for Equalities and Human Rights chairman told MPs that his body should have sweeping powers to permit positive discrimination to prevent jobseekers from migrant communities being disadvantaged.
But I suppose Trev would answer that the high percentage of white people round here simply means that we are all wicked racists ourselves. Applying Trev's principles, perhaps some of us should be evicted from our houses, and replaced with blacks and Asians, in order that the area might be made more 'diverse'!
