The shocking revelation that a seven year old boy from Hull was branded a 'racist' by his school for asking a fellow pupil a question demonstrates the politically correct depths to which the Lib-Lab-Con parties have plunged our country.
To recap, for those of you who managed to avoid news of this sorry tale: A seven year boy asked a fellow pupil at Griffin Primary School (pictured) in Hull if he was 'brown because he's from Africa'. Following this, the boy's mother was called into the school by staff and asked to sign a form acknowledging that her son had made a racist remark.
She is quotes as saying "I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation.
'I refused to sign it and I told the teacher in no way did I agree the comment was racist. My son is inquisitive. He always likes to ask questions, but that doesn't make him a racist.'
The mother of the boy who was asked the question has made it clear that she was not behind this vile witch hunt, and has stated that "I don't want people going round saying I called that little boy racist. This is extremely distressing for me and my family." This makes it clear that the initiative for this incident came from within the school.
Anyone with children will know that they are naturally inquisitive and innocent. These twin traits can lead them to ask questions which may occasionally make their parents blush. In such situations, a good parent will seek to answer the question in a way which both provides a satisfactory explanation and, the parent in question will hope, will prevent the need for the same awkward question to arise again.
This should not be taken for one second to suggest that the question asked in this case should be an embarrassing one, but the fact is that decades of politically correct subversion by treacherous politicians from the Lib-Lab-Con cartel parties have ensured that the subject of race is taboo and there is an ever-present risk that even innocuous remarks can be interpreted as 'racist' and used against the statement maker.
Most adults in our society today have been sufficiently indoctrinated to be able to take steps, often unconsciously, to avoid putting themselves in a situation where they may enter the 'PC danger zone' and say something which could result in them being branded a 'racist', but young children have not yet generally been so conditioned, despite the worst intentions of the staff at Griffin Primary School and their ilk.
There are many ways that this question could have been answered, ranging from the politically correct through to the honest and commonsense. The fact that the staff at the school felt it appropriate to drag the boy's poor mother into school and attempt to force her to sign a form condemning her son for an alleged thought-crime is a damning indictment indeed of these so-called teachers. Those responsible should hang their heads in shame and be thrown out of the school and banned from ever working with children again. Politically correct indoctrination is a form of child abuse and those who practice it should be treated accordingly.
In a sane and healthy society our children would be encouraged to ask questions and no subject would be taboo. This is the approach which all good parents already take of course. Occasionally this may lead to awkward questions being asked, but these can be easily answered.
It is a sobering thought that more than 20,000 children under the age of 11 were put on record by their teachers (and one can only use this term in its loosest sense in this context) in 2010 for the kind of 'hate-crimes' as the one allegedly committed by the young boy in Hull when he asked an innocent question.
Little wonder then, that our school system is failing our children so badly, when politically correct indoctrination is prioritised over real education. This sickening episode shows just how badly our country needs a party that will fight the evils of this alien ideology wherever it rears its ugly head.
That party is the English Democrats and I would urge you to join us and help us to free our people from this madness.
