    Racist POS good for nothing union. Minorities are not a monolith and asians are not black and vice versa. How horribly misguided to think that using the image of a pakistani pop star will empower black students at the uni more so than using the image of black proponents of anti-racism.


    White people gonna white people. I guess. Sigh.

    This was either due to idiocy or glorious trolling.

    Also, why don't we incorporate 'black history' into regular history instead of having a single special month devoted to it? Or at least call a spade a spade and name it 'Ironically Patronising White Guilt Month.'

    I agree with you. The curriculum can't not portray black people as anything other than subservient unfortunately, as if the last 300 years and slavery encompasses all of black history. If you're going to teach it, it has to be historically accurate and not the same dry stuff over and over again. The problem is, I don't even think history teachers know much about black history outside slavery in America.

    A professional offendee giving it the "it's not my fault if you're offended, that's on you" line. Couldn't make it up.

    On a side note, it's jokes how often SJWs are at least as ignorant, regressive and racist as those they spend all their time bleating about.

    This is not just offensive to black people, it's also offensove to all ethnic minorities in the UK. This clearly shows that if you aren't caucasian then you are part of the 'others' . Clearly their SU isn't diverse.

    To think I was considering Kent at one point smh

    To be fair, Kent's SU isn't by any means the only SU to be full of sheltered, ignorant half-wits. In fact it's more or less a pre-requisite to be a significant part of any SU. I used to be a union rep for a sports society at East Anglia and had to sit through the meetings. It was tortuous.

    Look at the NUS. They're like the final boss of SUs and they're considered a national joke.
