Racialising Hadrian’s Wall? MUST Be BBC!


 

Celebrations to mark the 1,900th anniversary of Hadrian’s Wall have missed a chance to acknowledge the contribution of ethnic communities to the area, it has been claimed..

.

Of course I may be wrong, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the Guardian or Independent had some similar slop, but that junk at the top of our page is easily recognisable….

..as quintessentially UK Pravda prattle!

  ‘Campaigners believe more outreach work needs to be done with diverse communities’

– exploiting the 1800th anniversary of Hadrian’s Wall to push their ‘diversity’ agenda.

Like that Detroit issue last week…

….this propaganda is not just annoying in general but also personally irksome, in that I spent many happy summer days as a youngster…

1960s -digging at Housesteads

0000

….digging up Roman remains in that part of Northumbria.

But the BBC has handed its tax-funded megaphones to some geezer who coincidentally holds the glorious title of ‘equality, diversity and inclusion manager for the Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service’ (seriously!) allowing him to whine that ‘apart from details of Syrian archers there were few mentions along the wall of the role diverse groups played…-

Well, boo hoo…

…hoo!

Mohammed Dhalech said African and Middle Eastern people got little mention on the 73-mile (118km) route. The campaigner said more needed to be done to engage ethnic minorities in the area’s history https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-61661813

Yeah, right.

Once the residents of Brixton are told of Syrian archers who died over 1700 years ago  they’ll skip Caribbean clubbing and organise bus-runs northwards.

Once congregations leaving Bradford mosques hear about long-dead legionaries of Eastern origin, wow, it’ll be trainloads to the Wall.

Anyone interested in the Wall could always find details of the cohorts who served.

When I hung around Housesteads Roman Fort, decades ago, there was a guide-book and a small museum, where one learned that the troops stationed there were Tungrians, from what is now Belgium, and at the next fort along the Wall, Chesters, a much larger museum, sculptures etc…

.

.

…named other far-away provinces from which Rome brought its soldiers to garrison those forts.

The information was always there, never secreted, just not dragged in as multicultist propaganda.

But the sheer nonsense of the BBC article has to be exemplified by its quote from a woman named Jacqueline Scott, whose photo clearly identifies her as of black African descent.

She walked the route with that ‘equality, diversity and inclusion manager for the Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service’ and she said:

“I came here to honour the ancestors, the black history that is right here in the English countryside…’

WHOSE ANCESTORS?

For pity’s sakes, not hers.

Those Tungrians, and Syrians, and Dacians and the worshippers of the Persian god Mithras, who came from all over the then-known world, may well have inter-married with local Britons, but only the tiniest strain of their ancestry is likely to remain among any descendants of those ancient folk still in the area…

…assuming their original offspring were not wiped out by Pictish Incursions, Viking Raids, Border Rievers and all the other belligerents who swarmed the region over the centuries.
