    Super, you can Google for pictures of white people in Western governments.

    Here is a picture for you from two days ago of the Zimbabwean cabinet:


    Did you ever see so much "black privilege"? Completely unearned, must be, else why would black?

    "White privilege" is a crock.

    Is that from when they were watching him sign something relating to women's reproductive rights? If not it's a similar thing, a room of old white dudes signing something.

    You posted your photographs after that. There is no reason why I should not have done likewise.

    White "dudes" - the only bunch of people we're still allowed to look down on.

    So your damning evidence is a photo where 7% of the cabinet is Asian... and they comprise 5% of the UK population...

    But let me guess... Asian isn't ''Black'' enough...

    Racialist thinking at its finest.

    BME population is 13%

    Do you see 13% of the Cabinet being BME?

    Depends on the chap really, if they are generally decent and don't actually mean any harm then their fine. If it's some condescending hoofbanking bunglepunt that is clearly not going to apologise any time soon then they've more than earnt being looked down on.

    Yes in Scotland 2014 i was called all sorts, but to twist this very basic and important poll question and it's result to then be about, 'White privilege' and 'trans rights' is edging ever so slightly to the LBC phone ins where

    moronic from great yarmouth phones in to tell us "its the liberal lefts fault that you can't say anything (racist) anymore" its poooolitical correctedness gone maaaad ain't it"

    I wish i hadn't voted before i'd read how it was being framed

    every question is now RIGHT vs LEFT :rolleyes:

    its probably why we have people actively defending and encouraging votes for an accused child molester, VILE

    tribalism, raw unfettered tribalism

    Have to agree with this. If anyone commented that "white women", "black men", "Asian women" etc. were by implication exercising power in a manner some might consider incorrect or inappropriate, it wouldn't be allowed to just pass by, by many posters.
