Jo Brand: ‘you can’t be racist towards white people’

“[Y]ou can be prejudiced towards a group of people who are more powerful than you, but I don’t think you can be racist towards them,” says ‘comedienne’ Jo Brand.

Not very funny, Jo. You seem to be thinking that ordinary white people in their own country are politically more powerful than other ethnic groupings. They are not!

TELEGRAPH BLOGS, 14Oct09: The ever-excellent Biased BBC notes that Jo Brand has been explaining the meaning of racism on Radio Five Live:

Jo Brand: My personal opinion is that you can’t be racist towards white people. You can be prejudiced about them but being prejudiced isn’t an illegal act whereas being racist can be.

Phil Williams: Don’t you think racism is just being derogatory about a race, regardless of the colour?

Jo Brand: No I don’t. I think the definition of racism also encompasses political power. So you can’t be racist towards a race that’s politically more powerful than a minority. That to me is the correct definition of racism. I think you can be prejudiced towards a group of people who are more powerful than you, but I don’t think you can be racist towards them.

NPD letter to immigrant politicians tells them to ‘go home’

THE LOCAL, Germany, 22Sep09: Just days before Germany’s election, the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party (NPD) have sent racist letters to politicians of multicultural background declaring they should leave the country, daily Der Tagesspiegel reported on Tuesday.

The two-page letters, formulated as “proclamations,” were sent to politicians’ home addresses and were meant to inform them of the “details of their trip home,” the paper reported.

The right-wing extremist NPD confirmed it sent the letters over the weekend, and while there was no return address, the party’s Berlin leader Jörg Hähnel is thought to be responsible for them. Berlin public prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation into the letters for incitement of hatred.

According to Hähnel, more letters will soon arrive at the homes of other politicians with immigrant heritage. They are meant to sound official, informing recipients of how “foreigners will be returned to their homelands” based on a “five-point plan” that they should immediately undertake.
