A storm as big as a hurricane has been provoked by rapper Stormzy. But IS Britain 100% racist?

11 68 0

Urban icon Stormzy has them huffing and puffing over the breakfast tables of Britain as the Italian paper La Republica slowly translates into the English tabloids. Some of it has been lost in translation.

Stormzy didn’t mean that 100% of British people were racists. How could they be?

If they were, Stormzy would be on the roads of Croydon kicking his heels rather than bringing Christmas Day to a close on the BBC, neither would he have headlined Glastonbury or been a judge of prime-time TV on the X Factor. Neither would he now be a multi-millionaire.

He meant that the British state was 100% racist. And that would be 100% true.

The British Empire had racism as its premise. How could it be otherwise?

How else could a small set of islands off the north of Europe justify ruling about a quarter of the landmass and 23 percent of the people........
