BNP claims there is a "racial genocide" in Britain

Oh dear. Don't get me started.

The BNP's Language and Concepts Discipline Manual (the very title makes your skin crawl) says that the term used for black and Asian people in this country should be "racial foreigners".

BNP leader Nick Griffin added to the BBC:

" civic terms they are British, British also has a meaning as an ethnic description. These people are 'black residents' of the UK etc, and are no more British than an Englishman living in Hong Kong is Chinese."
We don't subscribe to the politically correct fiction that just because they happen to be born in Britain, a Pakistani is a Briton. They're not. They remain of Pakistani stock," he added.
"You can't say that especially large numbers of people can come from the rest of the world and assume an English identity without denying the English their own identity, and I would say that's wrong. In a very subtle way, it's a sort of bloodless genocide."

Nick Griffin, BNP chairman, spoke to the BBC to defend a party leaflet that said black and Asian Britons "do not exist", arguing that calling such people British denied indigenous people their own identity.


But the problem is that there is no indigenous group with Britain, unless you can find anyone descended from the Beaker folk. "Indigenous" refers to origination of a group. Anglo-Saxons originated form Saxony (presumably) and Celts originated from Northern Europe.

And by the way, the first Black people came to this country with the Romans to staff Hadrian's Wall, which was about 600 years before the first Anglo-Saxons came here.

The whole BNP's ethos is based on total ignorance of history.
