The Daily Mail has written an article of such flagrant racism that it has seen fit to edit itself. A superb piece has already been written on their post by @botherer, but I am actually shaking with rage and so I thought it important that I capture some of my anger here. The Daily Mail published an online piece by a man who scorned the very existence of happy mixed-race middle-class families. Yes, it actually did this.
I understand that there will be many people who will roll their eyes at what they see as such stunts by the Daily Mail. But I can’t be one of them today. This article is uniquely revealing. The Daily Mail has not attacked black men for acts of criminality. It has attacked them for their happy marriages to women who happen to be white.
That is shameful, and, I think, very dangerous. The Daily Mail consistently produces articles that give rise to what many would call leftie outrage. But I’m not a leftie living life in some kind of mythical liberal utopia, who takes calculated offence at every suggestion of prejudice. I am merely a black man entirely and authentically furious at an article whose main racial thrust I consider to be wholly unacceptable.
Right. Blood cooling, but that had to be said, or rather written. Thank you for reading this far.
