Kill the White People (But Buy My Record First)

You may remember last week’s news from the UK about Goldsmiths university “welfare and diversity officer” Bahar Mustafa, who insisted that as a “an ethnic minority woman” she couldn’t possibly “be racist or sexist towards white men,” despite excluding them from her “diversity” event.

Well, now there’s this:

The Goldsmiths diversity officer embroiled in a racism row could lose her job after allegedly tweeting with the hashtag “kill all white men”.

Ms Mustafa said in a statement the use of the term “white trash” – an offensive American term referring to poor white people following the Great Depression – on an official account had been “not professional”.

But she added the uses of hashtags such as “kill all white men” on her personal account were “in-jokes and ways that many people in the queer feminist community express ourselves”.

Such hateful forms of self-expression should be banned for the sake of diversity.
