Is it 'cos I is...?

Via Iain Dale, it seems that the disgustingly corrupt Lee Jasper has been opening his fat gob again.
"The fact is, it's time the black community ran its own schools, devised a curriculum that suited the needs of our children, employed teachers that look like the young people they are teaching."

Next up, the joys of apartheid...

Midgets presumably.

Tell people that black people have special needs, and suddenly, in their minds, the black guy in the queue suddenly is less of an individual, with emotions, thoughts, talents and achievments, and more "generic black guy". Such methods, as well as others like anti discrimination laws, or sensitivity training as is so popular in the states,can do nothing but set racial equality back several years. It is a social problem, and requires social change. We can't rely on law to achieve this.

Wherever I have said "black", feel free to insert another race, or disabled, or anything, really. It's universal.

Panopticon Britain said...

On top of that:
"Some of the greatest black leaders in the world - Dr Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, to name just two - attended all-black schools and universities."

Er, MLK only went to an all black school because of oppressive segregation laws in place in Georgia while he was growing up. It's not as if he or his family had a choice.
Jasper really is a racist douche.

Jasp is a corrupt racist, but he is a black corrupt racist and as such the left will never criticise him.

Come to that, neither will the 'right.'

Self-serving morons, of which Jasper is a prime example, set back race relations every time they open their mouths.

Jones said...

Isn't there a word for this kind of behaviour? Tip of my tongue.... begins with an 'R' I believe...

Oh yeah, racist. Fits, Cap.

Good job he didn't say that about any other minority group, eh?

The John Loughborough Seventh-day Adventist School, Holcombe Road, Tottenham, London N17 9AD, was established on just those principles. An essential motivator behind the scheme was the Tottenham Black Parents' Action Group (it even registered as a limited company: number 02530815).

The manifesto was that racist white teachers were, consciously or not, prejudiced against black students, and were (perhaps even maliciously) holding them back from success.

The Ofsted report last year was devastating. In no aspect was the school better than "satisfactory". Pupils joined the school "with attainment that is consistently a little below average": at year 11, standards "are well below average overall". There was high pupil turn-over. There were problems recruiting and retaining staff: other teachers were not performing. Parents were supportive, but "a significant minority wish to see improved behaviour". The report shied away from imposing special measures.

A year later things had not improved: the local authority (Haringey) took over control after a follow-up inspection. This was decried as "victimisation" by "a hit squad" (the balanced judgement of the Evening Standard):

A Haringey spokesman said: "Results for young people at John Loughborough School have been declining over recent years and this year it was the worst performing school in London. That could not be allowed to continue.

"The interests of pupils are, of course, of paramount importance. With the agreement of the Department for Children, Schools and Families, we have set up an interim executive board, [which] includes a number of experienced governors and nominees from the current governing body and the Seventhday Adventist community. This move is to improve leadership, standards achieved by the students and the quality of provision at the school so that the young people can enjoy better longer-term opportunities."

Translation from the Jasperese:

"The fact is, it's time those in the black community who kiss my butt were given barrow-loads of other peoples' cash to pretend to run its own schools, devised a lame-arse divisive, patronising and indoctrinating curriculum that suited our prejudices, paid people called teachers that look like the young people they are standing in front of."

This needs some track changes, I feel.

Nothing like a bit of racism to start my Tuesday morning.

Why not? Just add it to the bill. We'll just print more money.

I eagerly await the news from Lee Jasper that I have won a lottery I never entered in Holland and have inherited $25 Million in notes currently residing in a bank vault in Lagos.

He should be known from now on as Lee419

Newmania said...

Lee Jasper , like Mrs. is mixed race but was brought up in Oldham by his white mother.
Its an interesting psychological point that he chose to identify so vehemently with one side of his heritage and the part with which he had no contact.
Mrs N sensibly regards herself as 100% English but quite likes some of the music and sport from the Caribean.
I wonder where my three sons should go to school according to Lee J. They are an attractive spectrum of shades one being very as white as me .

Do you suppse its the old Southern States "One Drop" rule ? Should they be measured for curliness of hair , thickness of lip?

How lovely

Vicola said...

How bizarre, all those people fought so long and hard to bring about the end of segregation and now Mr Jasper is fighting to bring it back.

I didn't look like my teachers - I didn't have a moustache or a pair of science teacher leather sandals - but I still managed to get an eduation.

How 'black' would you have to be to get into one of Jasper's schools do you think? Would mixed race or light coffee coloured skin be acceptable or is it just very dark skin that is welcome? I don't really think that the dozy twat has thought this through properly.

Rob said...

Jasper wants to accelerate the 'ghettoisation' (horrible word, but I can't think of anything better) of his 'community' to shore up his position as a 'community leader'.

If black people are integrated and successful people like Lee Jasper are no longer needed.

Sounds like it's perfectly attuned for generating highly educated yoof qualified for the streets and then full time employment on the locked bars side of the prison service. Congratulations all round are in order.

Excellent. Can I do that too? Get government money to set up a middle-class school that won't let any of those council-estate yobboes in? With a proper old-style grammar school curriculum?

Of course I can't.

Jasper called for all black schools as far back as 2001. Nobody dared challenge him at the time because he had such high-level influence.

Take a look at his CV. He has been chair or principal advisor to innumerable committees etc. His influence has been (and still is) very widespread. And all along this anti-racism campaigner was unashamedly racist.

But what did you expect? He describes himself as a Black Nationalist. What views on race would you expect from someone describing themselves as a White Nationalist?

pagar said...

The point is that, if expressing racist views is illegal, any interest group based around the ethnicity of the people it purports to support should also be illegal. By funding these goups with public money the Government is supporting racism.

Most of the problems of the 'afro-carribean community' exist because the individuals within that community perceive themselves to be a part of it and to be victimised.

And we pay Jasper and his ilk to stir the pot......

Why oh why does this chap remind me of Sheffield's own corrupt, racist cunt, Ruggie Johnson?

In a word .... yes.

All Black hospitals, police and prisons next.

they are working hard to all black prison..... inmates

Miss Snuffleupagus said...

It is funny you know. When I read your post, as when I heard about Lee and his latest nonsense I felt my usual sense of loathing for the man.

Then I read your comments page and I could suddenly see why so many Blacks support him.

Old Holborn said...

Are you suggesting that the cure for all the numerous ills of the black community is to support a racist?

Didn't work in Germany. Hasn't worked in Zimbabwe.

Maybe they're just too thick to realise.

ENGLISHMAN said...

I would have thought that this professional negro would be keeping a low profile these days,after all there is still that small matter of 3 million pounds anaccounted for.As to the question of all negro schools,great idea,lets build them in africa ,where whitey will not hold back thier obvious genius and they all share the same IQ.

Old Holborn said...

The problem with black youth is that their parent(s) couldn't give a flying fuck.

We are seeing exactly the same with our burberry chavs.

Go and have a look at any other social species raising their young. The youngsters who push the boundaries get a wallop to remind them of their place in the order.

For some reason, parents and those exercising loco parentis are no longer allowed to do this. The effect on society is enormous

Dave H. said...

Miss Snuffle... you may find it distasteful but you should not be surprised at a backlash to this sickening overarchingly-PC government. What do you think something like Harman's plans for positive discrimination are doing to support for the far right?

Jasper was bigoted and corrupt but his race gave him immunity and favouritism from Ken 'I trust him with my life' Livingstone. Why shouldn't that piss people off?

Roger Thornhill said...

Racism is a turd in the swimming pool.

Lee Jasper thinks pinching off his own stinking log at the deep end will clean it. He is wrong.

Miss Snuffleupagus said...

Yes, I understand people being upset, but losing all sense of reason? No, I don't understand that. One should always endeavour to be clever and consistent, no matter how angry 'they' make you.

@ Miss snuffleupagus

"One should always endeavour to be clever and consistent, no matter how angry 'they' make you."


Why?

Old Holborn said...

There used to be a, 'lower class', in this country; powerless, exploited, bled dry, kicked around and despised.

Now they are called, 'English'.

Of course the fact that or jails and mental health hospitals are full of black, 70% of black kids fail in school. the body bags mount up and you lot here vent fury whilst comming up up with sweet fuck all by way of solution. You lot couldnt give a fuck about black people or thier kids.

Black schools stop the violence I'd vote for it in a hot second.

Devil's Kitchen said...

"Black schools stop the violence I'd vote for it in a hot second."

Prove it.

Look, Anon, the vast amount of black kids killed in London, for instance, are murdered by other black kids.

Would you like to explain to me how, precisely, racial segregation -- apartheid -- is going to solve that problem?

Unsworth said...

So, Anonymous 11:09 PM, this is all the fault of 'society', eh?

Frankly I couldn't give a fuck and I won't give a fuck until I see blacks taking real steps to rectify the problems of their own communities, rather than simply ripping off rate-payers and taxpayers like the illustrious Lee Jasper.

You want to ghetto-ise the blacks? Fine by me. Let's understand that walls both protect and contain. If blacks want to retreat to their communities so be it.

Don't get me wrong. I'd say the same of any section of society who took this stance.
