Apparently bearing another ethnicity is a protection against racism.
But this article is utterly racist.

Damn these people competing to be more Holocausty than thou!

Why don't we call it Universal Victimhood Day and throw it open to everyone?

ZS said...

HMD is about modern genocides. Not just the murder of Jews. It's not about victimhood and it's not for my benefit or the advantage of any group. It's about remembering hatred and murder, so that we can educate and avoid future instances of it.

Isn't there a whole black history month in the UK? Perhaps it's that "black culture" is patronisingly homogenising. And reduces the story of the Windrush generation, recent Commonwealth immigrants and French, American communtiies to one mass.

Pogroms will happen when government breaks down. I genuinely did not know that HMD was also for gentiles. I bet most people don't know it, probably that black woman who was whingeing on Huffington Post.

It's not really for Jews at all. We have other days for memorial in the Jewish calendar. 9 Av. 10 Tevet. Yom Hazikaron

Is it for Palestinians as well?

We must all campaign to make Nakba Day (15 May) a National Day of rememberance in the UK and throughout Europe. Talk to MPs now.

We must not close our ears, eyes and minds to the ongoing racism hatred and murder against the Palestinians

We could call Holocaust Memorial Day World Victimhood Day so everyone in the world can get on the Jewish bandwagon.
