I grew up around people who thought it was OK to be "colored" if, but only if, you're one of the "good ones." Shit never really changes.

The hilarious part of Dame Lindsey's statement is his use of Tim Scott, South Carolina's other GOP senator, as an example. Scott's a black man who's done well in S.C. because of how conservative he is, ya see. Trouble is, Scott gave a rather famous speech a few years back describing how he's a U.S. Senator who lives his life entirely within the bounds of the law, yet gets pulled over by cops at least seven times per year in his home state for absolutely nothing. Well, not really for nothing, but instead for driving while black.

This 7-yr old post seems to have been the first mention of Golden Dawn on this forum, so you get all the marbles.

Yes, the Church of England is an anachronism.
Yes, so is the House of Lords


... but notwithstanding, this is still pretty blatant racism on the part of the Johnson/Cummings government.
