UK Conservative Party member, Kemi Badenoch, who is also UK’s Women and Equalities Minister, delivered a blistering condemnation of the “anti-capitalist Black Lives Matter” movement and critical race theory on the floor of the House of Commons. The brave ambassador for fairness warned members of the Parliament that such ideologies have no place in British schools.about:blankabout:blankabout:blank

Badenoch explained, “What we are against is the teaching of contested political ideas as if they are accepted fact,” adding, “We don’t do this with communism, we don’t do this with socialism, we don’t do it with capitalism—and I want to speak about a dangerous trend in race relations that has come far too close to home to my life, and it’s the promotion of Critical Race Theory, an ideology that sees my blackness as victimhood and their whiteness as oppression.”

“I want to absolutely clear,” Badenoch said. “This government stands unequivocally against Critical Race Theory.”

She explained her position to members of Parliament, “Some schools have decided to openly support the anti-capitalist Black Lives Matter group, often fully aware that they have a statutory duty to be politically impartial.” The UK Equalities Minister continued, “Black lives do matter, of course, they do. But we know that the Black Lives Matter movement— capital B.L.M.— is political. I know this, because, at the height of the protests, I have been told of white Black Lives Matter protesters calling,  and I’m afraid, I apologize for saying this word, calling a black armed police officer guarding downing street a ‘pet n****r,” she said as she turned her head to address the room, telling them, “That is why we do not endorse that movement on this side of the House,”

Badenoch condemned the one-sided political movement and the members of the UK Parliament who support it, “It is a political movement, and what would be nice, would be for members on the opposite side to condemn many of the actions that we see this political movement, instead of pretending that it is completely wholesome anti-racist organization, that there is a lot of pernicious stuff that is being pushed and we stand against that.”

Finally, the UK Equality Minister warned, “We do not want to see teachers teaching their white pupils about white privilege and inherited racial guilt. And let me be clear: any school which teaches these elements of Critical Race Theory as fact, or which promotes partisan political views such as defunding the police without offering a balanced treatment of opposing views, is breaking the law.”
