UK: Survey Says Half of Britons Can’t Name a “Historical Black British Figure”

Why would there be a “historical black British figure”?

In America, we had slaves, so we remember OJ Simpson, Easy E, and Samuel L. Jackson as historical figures.

But why would the British have this?

They didn’t have black slaves. The nigger invasion of Britain is a post-war phenomenon.

The Guardian:

More than half of Britons know so little about Black British history that they cannot name a single historical figure, a survey has revealed.

The researchers found that the UK knows “shockingly little” about Black British history. While 75% of British adults surveyed acknowledged that they did not know “very much” or “anything at all” about the subject, more than half (53%) could not recall any Black British historical figures and only 7% could name more than four.

Although people with dark skin first came to Britain about 12,000 years ago, with the first known people to come directly from Africa settling approximately 2,000 years ago, more than a third (36%) of Britons surveyed believed that the first Black people migrated to Britain only in the past 200 years, with a further 29% not sure. One in four (25%) believed that it was within the past 100 years and only 9% thought that it was more than 1,500 years ago.

Most people also underestimated the scale of Britain’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. More than half (53%) did not know how many people were taken from Africa by the British. Around half believed the number was 250,000 or fewer and only 12% of Britons thought that more than 1 million people were taken, “despite the true figure being more than three times that amount”, the report found.

Bloomsbury Publishing (UK), which commissioned the survey, recently published an acclaimed book, Brilliant Black British History, celebrating the people who helped build Britain in the fields of science, sport, literature and law.

Atinuke, the book’s award-winning Nigerian-born author, said of the survey’s findings: “Half of UK adults cannot name a single Black historical figure and only 7% can name more than four … I think disbelief is really the only word.”

She would have expected people to name figures such as Quintus Lollius Urbicus, who became governor of Roman Britain; the formerly enslaved Olaudah Equiano, who became an abolitionist and writer; Mary Seacole, who provided sustenance and care for British soldiers during the Crimean war, and the composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.

Quintus Lollius Urbicus was a Berber, not black.

His family came from Numidia, in the northern part of what is today Algeria.

She said: “There have always been people with black and brown skin in Britain – from the stone age, through every single era, to the present day. More than that, the forced contribution of millions of Black people before and during the Georgian era changed the course of British history – helping Britain to become the first industrialised nation in the world, and a superpower.”

This is literally just a lie. The word is actually “fraud.” Academia is committing fraud by claiming that there have always been Africans in Britain.

It’s an easily disproved lie, and people have to wonder why such a lie would be pushed on them so aggressively by the government/media.

If black immigration is good, then why does it have to be justified with goofy and moronic lies?

Maybe black immigration is not actually good?

Maybe every country on earth should, like the Asians, try to have as few black people in their country as possible?
