For some reason the following story of multiculti madness in Sweden reminds me of a recent news report about accusations that panelists on a BBC Radio 4 gardening program are using racist language when they talk about “native” and “non-native” plant species. This WAYCIST obsession has gone beyond barking mad into some new twilight world…
Swedes to Remove ‘The Concept of Race’ from All Legislation
The Swedish government plans to remove the concept of race from all legislation, claiming that accepting that there are different races means one race is superior to another.
However, the National Afro-Swedish Association has criticised the proposal, arguing that the concept of race is important in order to highlight discrimination.
Swedish Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag told Sveriges Television (SVT) this week that: “We know that there aren’t really different human races. We also know that the fundamental grounds of racism are based on the belief that there are different races, and that belonging to a race makes people behave in a certain way, and that some races are superior to others.”
He said the “concept of race” had a negative connotation and was likely to stir up prejudice. Therefore he will remove the word from Swedish legislation.
“Legislation should not include the word race, if we argue that there are not actually races. I have wanted to remove the concept of race for a long time,” the minister said…
However SVT reports that Zakaria Zouhir, a Left Party activist and President of the National Afro-Swedish Association (ASR), opposed the Government’s decision on the concept of race: “It is an important tool to highlight the structural discrimination that exists in society. And that affects a significant portion of society’s citizens, solely because of their skin colour.”
