Jackson: UK 'must choose inclusion'
belfasttelegraph.co.uk ^ | December 3, 2013

Posted on 12/03/2013 7:41:49 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

American civil rights campaigner the Rev Jesse Jackson says the UK's "big challenge" is to "choose inclusion".

Britain had to build a "new nation" a nd in a speech to Cambridge University students, he said people had to learn to live together and grow.

"Too many Americans do not realise-and perhaps too many Europeans as well do not yet realise-that most people in the world are black, brown, yellow, young, female, non-Christian, and don't speak English," he told the Cambridge Union Society.

"And the formerly colonised peoples are now moving away from the monochrome, all 'one-ethnic- group' societies.

"This is Europe's big challenge for the future, and the UK's big challenge, to build a new nation, to choose inclusion.

"We must unlearn earlier lessons we learned too well. We learned how to survive apart.

"We must now learn a new lesson-how to live and prosper together, choosing inclusion which leads to growth."

He told the student debating society: " A comprehensive policy of democracy and inclusion is the road map to a new England, to serve the emerging, diverse world."


TOPICS: United Kingdom
KEYWORDS:
Jesse Jackson hits out at Oxford-Cambridge admissions - December 3, 2013 - Echoing comments he made on Monday at Cambridge University, he said: "I'm concerned that when 21 colleges at Oxbridge took no black students last year, the students are being cheated of a multi-cultural and multi-racial experience in a world that is multi-cultural and multi-racial."

The USA is probably a lot more ethnically diverse than any country in Africa. And why should anyone listen to this shriveled-up, adulterous, anti-Semite?

Dear Jesse - I have no problem with different skin colors and different languages, it’s the ones that want to take my stuff, harm my family and/or cut off my head that concern me. BTW, you have become completely irrelevant and your opinions mean nothing, so you may as well just shut up.

Dear NON-Reverend Jackson,

The UK is already a new nation. A socialist one that hates it citizenry, steals all its liberties, has no freedom of the press, lousy health care, lots of bad violent crime and lower standards of living than pre WWII. I would say you’re late to the party!

Jessie, maybe Oxford didn’t accept any blacks is because they WERE NOT QUALIFIED to get in?

The Jacksons of the world are big on ‘inclusion’ when it suits them. But I don’t see any big push to make Africa, Asia or any non western society more’ diverse’.

In little Jackson’s world, only the black are “Qualified” for elite positions, and if you dare to suggest that they did not pass the exams and tests, it simply proves you’re a racist.

Lee Rigby would probably applaud Britain’s policy of ‘inclusion’, except no he wouldn’t because he was decapitated by Nigerian Muslims.

Hey, Jessie, that’s because they likely didn’t make the academic cut and Oxbridge doesn’t give you an automatic “affirmative action pass because we know blacks can’t be expected to meet the entrance requirements we’d have for whites and Asians.” Very unlike, say Harvard.

?!?

So the Black/Brown/Yellow people, who had been colonized in the past, are now moving away? From what? Their homelands? Which are monochrome? Why are they moving away - and coming here? Why don't they stay where they are? Maybe - because our western society is more tolerant, more democratic, more capitalistic?

Well, maybe they should stay where they are - in their "monochrome, all 'one-ethnic-group' societies - and try to uplift them, by emulating our western society.

Regards,

Somehow I missed his speech in Saudi Arabia, which is actively rounding up its immigrants and deporting them by the tens of thousands.

...and don’t speak English...

Actually they do, Jesse, if they're at all educated; and as a second language because it's a necessity in a world in which English is the language of science, commerce, travel, and more.

1—I cant disagree.
2—Ditto.
3—No, in fact, the current dispute is the abuse of the press of its freedom.

4—The NHS whilst flawed isn’t the hellhole you think it is.
5—Really?. American lectures on violent crime and society?.

6—Hmm, no.

I think Jessie think the reason you don’t hear Oxford not in the BCS and the NCAA final four is because Oxford doesn’t have enough BLACKS.

Scottsman...Thanks for the reply.

Violent crime per person is higher in the UK. It was not in any way a suggestion towards us being “superior” as much as I use it as a direct correlation to the fact that in the UK you are all but prevented from self protection. Yeah, we have our guns and we have higher deaths by the gun, but a per person LOWER violent crime rate. 1 death is too many in crime we all know and accept, but its out of context in my original post so I hope this clarifies it better.

Cheers!

The biggest violent crime in the UK is burglary.

And we are not not allowed (pardon the double negative) self-defence or defence of the home, that’s a myth I and other British freepers constantly have to correct on here.
I know its myth, as I have been one of those who used violence in defence of myself and my home in 2008.

Also, as I have pointed out, the classification of violent crime in the UK skews the figures, as we have crimes on the books here classed as violent that aren’t in the US or other major countries.
