Apartheid: meaning “separateness”, or “the state of being apart”
Racialize: to impose a racial interpretation on; place in a racial context. To perceive, view, or experience in a racial context. To categorize or differentiate on the basis of membership in a racial group.
Chris Read and the Rotherham Labour Party have done more to divide the communities of Rotherham and encourage racism than the EDL marches and a thousand fascist groups could ever hope to achieve.
They have done more to racialize politics here than the BNP/UKIP combined.
While targeting their words and actions at the smallest of right wing groups, they have lost sight of the vast majority, the working people, the unemployed, the elderly, the disabled, the young, the vulnerable.
People of all ethnicities and religions, who simply want equality, a good education for their children, a clean and safe environment, promotion on merit, justice and the application of law.
Instead they posture meaninglessly and use EDL and other right wing groups as an opiate, a means of forgetting their own impotence and incompetence. Be aware his political correctness is self serving…to keep his national political ambitions on track.
In his latest cabinet appointment, he has created a crazy situation wherein:
4 (50%)out of 8 Cabinet Posts are filled from only 3 of the 20 Wards that make up the Borough. All three Wards are from the inner town.
2 (25%) out of the 8 eight cabinet members come from one Ward: Boston Castle
That Ward was referred to the national Labour Party for bullying and intimidation of members. One of the alleged bullies is now standing in a Sheffield Court accused of rape, and if found guilty the Party will be called to account.
The messages sent by the Cabinet additions are clear, and the focus on central Rotherham will hasten the process where the outer areas of the town look more and more towards elsewhere for entertainment and shopping. Central Rotherham is another step closer to being a ghetto. With limited interaction between ethnicities.
I used the term Apartheid…read the definition again.
The Kashmiri leaders who seek political promotion no longer need the support of the broad range of the electorate, across races, religions and cultures. They can muscle their way into Labour Party selection by buying Ward nominations through enrolling biraderi members, and effectively apply a 3 line whip to make them vote (allegedly some using illegal voting practices.)
They don’t have to live by the rules that apply to others.
