The Last Supper
White Allies, in the night in which they were betrayed
White Allyship is an educational process which trains white people on how to talk to black people and safely make friends with us. The training is run by the Woke Academy, and it's open to all white people who don't live in the racist countryside. If you self-identify as an urban white, you can take the course over the internet, and at the end you print out a certificate to prove that you have passed the test and are now certified as safe to be friends with black people. You might wonder why credentials are necessary, but this is essential for your own protection and to keep all our communities safe.
Naked Edward of Bristol Harbour, as conceptualised by his fans
Take a hypothetical man named, say, Edward. Ask yourself, is he a good man or a bad man? It's important to know, because before cancelling anyone you have to know whether they are good people or bad people.
"By jove!" Cornwallis smiles. "216 years on, and I've colonised the Internet! Oh jolly good show! Time for a good cup of Darjeeling to celebrate! Attr: Corny's Corner
Free markets are brilliant. In open markets, a seller prefers the buyer who offers the best price. Very few sellers will let their ideology determine their bargains, and those who do will soon crash and burn. It is simply not possible to succeed in the long-term by making decisions based purely on ideology. Price is more important than ideology in market exchanges.
This means that a lot of time, energy, fury and effort is wasted monitoring discrimination and passing more and more hate-crime legislation. All these anti-racist measures make woke folk sleep better on their pillows at night, as they feel that they are good people, but it makes no difference to anybody's life outcomes.

I know a few things about colonialism. I learned these things from growing up in Kenya, a former British colony. I have always been interested in hearing what other people think about colonialism, the advantages and disadvantages, and how it has influenced the socioeconomic outcomes of former colonies and their peoples.
Now Bruce Gilley’s Studies in Anti-Colonialism, a book series that aims “to raise questions about the normative and empirical validity of anti-colonial perspectives, to stimulate debate and offer new solutions to pressing global problems” has been characterised as a threat to public health: it risks exposing readers to positive views on colonialism.
Racism exists. A victim of racism faces different life challenges than they would face if racism did not exist. But racism does not play the primary role in forging our life path. It never did. It never will.
