If Black parents don’t have enough to worry about!

The decision to allow members of the BNP to teach on our State schools is appalling; it treats Black communities with zero respect.

We will be writing to the Education Minister to demand the right for Black families to  know if their child is being taught by member of the BNP and pull them out of that class if they so desired.

This is not a political ideal that you somehow leave at the school gate. This is an ideology of pure hatred. Would Ed Balls and Maurice Smith be happy if their children were taught by someone who officially hated their child’s race and religion?

  1. This might not be a popular thing to say, but we live in a democratic society, we have freedom of speech and expression. The BNP are not an illegal political party, and unless they become one, I think it’s wrong to try and ban BNP members from the teaching profession.

    I have to agree with Maurice Smith’s point when he says banning BNP members from teaching would be like

    “taking a very large sledgehammer to crack a minuscule nut”.

    I’m quite sceptical of the idea that the teaching profession will be overrun by BNP members discriminating against BME pupils. Why would any active BNP member want to teach at a school which had a significant number of BME children? Surely that would be against everything they stand for.

    The BNP are a shambolic political organisation, with policies that are totally inadequate for dealing with the major political issues. It’s a failure of the mainstream political parties to scrutinise these policies and honestly discuss issues like immigration which allows the BNP to gain more attention and significance than it actually deserves.

  2. I completely understand the sentiment, but would suggest that the racial stereotypes about the (in)ability of black boys / children to achieve and also other misconceptions (e.g. black history started with enslavement) go beyond the teachers that are BNP members / voters, and this is the real concern.

    The inability to smash the myriad of theories espoused by Griffin et al., and the rather ‘shouty’ response of the BNPs detractors could be seen as light on facts that undermine their arguments (which can easily be done).

    I’d also argue calling them fascists and Nazi scum, whilst cathartic to some, does little to undermine their arguments. Fighting ignorance and misinformation with name-calling hardly changes nor proves / disproves anything.
