A Hell Of A Lot Of Words To Say…

….’Go forth & multiply’:

A school named after slave trader Edward Colston is to resist calls from activists to change its name.
Colston’s Girls’ School, in Bristol, said there was no benefit in ‘obscuring history’ and said instead it wanted students to ‘engage thoughtfully with the past’.

It’s shown more courage than other institutions which plan to meekly submit to these idiotic demands:

The concert venue Colston Hall – which has been a target for activists for decades – will reopen in 2020, after its refurbishment, with a new name.

And a local primary school bearing Colston’s name has also said it is consulting on a re-brand.

Maybe they, too, will now come to their senses?

CGS said in a letter to parents it would not be removing the name of the slave trader from its official title.

It read: ‘It has been suggested that Colston’s Girls’ School should change its name in order to remove the association with Edward Colston.

‘We have considered this suggestion and we have listened carefully to views on both sides.

‘After much discussion, it has been agreed that it would not be appropriate to rename the school.

‘There is no doubt that Colston’s Girls’ School exists today as an outstanding school for girls, nationally known for its academic excellence and well respected for its inclusivity and diversity – because of the financial endowment given by Edward Colston but we see no benefit in denying the school’s financial origin and obscuring history itself.

‘To the contrary, by enabling our students to engage thoughtfully with our past, we continue to encourage them to ask questions about present-day moral values and to stand up for what they believe is right.’

I can’t think of a better advertisement for this school, frankly.

    Hopefully Mr W-wordhead (I mean with a name like that he has to be a screaming racist doesn’t he?)is not long for his job. Far too much of that ‘victims of class system sense’ stuff, the NUT must act swiftly.

    A reality check at last, can we now say White Aid,, or Foreign Aid as it is known is really racist, is it insulting to Africans who keep demonstrating how dependent on whites they really are. In the convoluted logic of Lib-nuts ,, whites having more brain power is racist.

      We don’t have more brain power, but as I said to a chum when they went about promoting water aid – why do they wait until we turn up to dig the wells?

      It isn’t about money. It’s because it’s easier to do nothing and have someone else do the work than do it themselves.

        Dear Errol whites do have more brain power than Africans, post a list of African inventions, starting from the time of the wheel,

    Yet little condemnation of the africans and arabs who were the suppliers to the slave trade – and are still indulging in such commerce.
