A couple of snowball-head Aryans and then one with fairly olive skin and one in between. I have prejudged this group on the basis of press reports, possibly in right-wing newspapers, about the greater likelihood of being mugged by young black males than by any other group.
But somehow or other a little beeper goes off in my brain. It is common ground among both right-wingers and left-wingers that racism is "natural", in that it seems to arise organically, in all civilisations.
And the same mistake, of course, is being made by the race relations industry today. The question is, what to do with the effluent? Where is the foaming river of blood? In fact, I like to think my instincts, in this respect, are as blameless as those of the average Guardian reader; and the thing is, I am guilty none the less.
Not of racism, I hope, but of spasms of incorrectitude, soon over, soon regretted. Share via Email Am I a racist? Well, even if you accept the distinction, you have to admit that, as a prophet, Powell got it crashingly wrong. No wonder the CPS groans with anti-discrimination units, while making a balls-up of so many cases.
Kiddies romping around in the minimalist basement. On questions of race, the man to listen to is not Enoch Powell, but WF Deedes, who served in the same Tory cabinet, and who thinks our record in this country is as good as anywhere in the world.
I cannot rule out that I have suffered from a tiny fit of prejudice. It is as natural as sewage. If the Macpherson report had been implemented in full, you might not get away with that, Gary. Now you might tell me not to be such a wuss.
In reality, provided we have a reasonable legal framework for minimising the problem - like the infrastructure used to remove sewage - we could probably achieve the same results, if not better. Heaven knows why Macpherson made his weird recommendation, that the law might be changed so as to allow prosecution for racist language or behaviour "other than in a public place".
House in some Islington media gulch. Look at my life. If we axed large chunks of the anti-racism industry, stopped taxing so many people with the threat of legal action, and left a bit more of the struggle against racism to tolerance and good manners.
He was not a racist; he was merely the prophet of racism.
He was simply pointing out that other people - the benighted folk of Wolverhampton - could not be expected to show the same restraint. Powell himself was not a racist, say the Powellites, but he spoke for those whose baser feelings were too sorely taxed by their neighbours. One of the features of conservative cant is the assertion that "Enoch did not have a racist bone in his body".
So are we all. It is all very well for the Hampstead liberals to be tolerant; but what of the urban poor, those at the sharp end? You might say that I am at no more risk than if I had come across a bunch of winos. And so are you, baby.
And if that is racial prejudice, then I am guilty.Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for I Am Guilty at mi-centre.com Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users.
