Meghan Markle Backs Campaign to ‘Decolonize’ UK Curriculum from ‘Male, Pale, and Stale’ Professors

Meghan Markle Backs Campaign to ‘Decolonize’ UK Curriculum from ‘Male, Pale, and Stale’ Professors

Campaign to target ‘legacies’ of empire and racism on UK Campuses.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, is backing a campaign to “decolonize” the British curriculum by getting more women and ethnic minorities to join the faculties instead of “male, pale, and stale” professors, the UK newspapers report.

Getting endorsement from the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex is more than a publicity coup for the leftist campaigners who are calling to purge Britain of its distinct cultural and historic legacy by replacing it with their politically correct worldview. The newest member of the royal family has a great sway over the academic policy making since she is the Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, with over 500 member institutions in the UK and former British colonies.

The campaign backed by Markle “aims to ‘confront the legacies of the empire’ and racism on campuses and promot[e] black and female thinkers instead of ‘male, pale and stale’ ones,” Daily Mail explained.

“Like much of our establishment, our universities are too male, pale and stale and do not represent the communities that they serve or modern Britain,” said Angela Rayner, the Labour politician and a prominent campaigner for the movement. If the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour comes to power, the government will take measures to change the make-up of the university staff across the country, Rayner promised.

The UK-based Daily Express reported Markle’s decision to back the initiative:

Meghan Markle has voiced her support for a campaign aiming to “decolonise the curriculum” by ensuring there are more black professors working in universities in her pioneering political intervention since joining the royal family.

The movement wants to confront the “male, pale and stale” professors and ensure there is more diversity among teachers in higher education. Data from 2018 by Equality and Higher education staff statistical report showed out of 14,205 male professors, more than 12,000 were white and just 90 were black. In 2016, Oxford University students campaigned to have the statue of Cecil Rhodes, the 19th Century colonialist and slave owner, removed from a university college.

One of the campaigners said Rhodes was “responsible for all manner of stealing land, massacring tens of thousands of black Africans, imposing a regime of unspeakable labour exploitation in the diamond mines and devising proto-apartheid policies”.

When the Duchess of Sussex became Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, she made it clear she was surprised at the low diversity of professors in the UK.

The campaign is part of a larger political push by the left-wing activists to reshape British society. In recent years, these campaigners have been calling for the tearing down of British monuments “glorifying” slavery and imperialism. The agitators took aim at London’s landmark Nelson’s Column, which was built in the memory of the famous nineteenth-century naval commander Admiral Horatio Nelson. They smeared the country’s finest naval hero as a “white supremacist” and an enabler of the transatlantic slave trade.

A group of activists at Oxford University demanded the removal of the statue of Cecil Rhodes, a Victorian-era industrialist, from the campus. The statute at Oriel college represented Britain’s “imperial blind spot,” they declared. Despite getting support from the mainstream media, such agitations have been met with strong opposition from the British public. The much-feted #RhodesMustFall movement failed after popular backlash forced the college’s governing body to reject the demand.

Last year, the UK teacher union chief urged schools to replace works of “dead white men” with a more “diverse” curriculum. The current curriculum focused too much on classics and neglected “black and women writers,” said Mary Bousted, head of the UK’s National Education Union. Reading ethnically diverse writers was more important for children than works by Shakespeare, whom she called “an intensely conservative writer.”

Markle, a former American actress and a self-described feminist, has never kept her left-wing political views a secret. “Markle has previously used her celebrity to back Hillary Clinton, lament Brexit and attack Donald Trump,” the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian correctly notes.

In the run-up to the U.S. presidential election, she hit out at then-Republican candidate Donald Trump, calling him “misogynistic and divisive.” In a 2016 interview, she endorsed Hillary Clinton “not because she’s a woman, but because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.” Ahead of the June 2016 Brexit vote, she posted a pro-EU meme on her Instagram account, saying, “If EU leave me now, you take away the biggest part of me.”

Needless to say, Markle’s minor celebrity status didn’t help Hillary win the presidential race, or the EU win the UK referendum. While her activism may win her a few brownie point with the liberal media, it will alienate the conservative base, the bedrock of British monarchy.

Exporting American academic dysfunctions won’t help British universities. As I understand it, universities and many other institutions in the UK are already damaged by politically correct nonsense.

Ironically, Meghan MARRIED a pale male who at some point will also be stale.

Hers is one of the most racist comments I’ve heard in a while.

Dumbing down education in one more country. If it is making us more ignorant here in US, why not export it to the rest of the world?

    The British education system is already as bad as the US, but still not distorted, dumbed-down and politicized enough to suit these racist, leftist morons.

Alternative headline: Person Who Produced Nothing, Married into Wealthy Royal Privilege, Now Declares Her Self-Importance as a Misandrous, Hate Whitey Racist.

‘Royals.’ What the hell does that mean – regardless of generation? My passing interest sees the whole lot of em through the centuries as debauched parasites dancing on the backs of the working class.

As for UK Universities, near as I can tell, they’re already secular cesspools of self-loathing PC horsecrap and capitulation to the Islamic rape grooming gangs which infest their cities.

Return to your embroidery, Meghan. Good grief.

I think that most of Europe is already in a downward spiral, this is just one of many symptoms of that.

Competence need not be a consideration and long as we have the right “diversity’”.

Meghan Markle, married a whitest of the white monarch. Talk about outdated. What does a member of the monarchy do all day? Come up with this kind of crap because there is no other meaning to their pampered lives? I’m sure if a Margaret Thatcher clone showed up, she’d be hired right away?

Hello, is this thing on?

Diversity of thought doesn’t exist on the left. Only superficial diversity counts. They claim to want a cornucopia, but what they really want are apples that taste like oranges, grapes that taste like oranges, pears that taste like oranges, chicken that tastes like oranges, bread that tastes like oranges, walnuts that taste like oranges – as long as you taste like an orange, you’re good. Not counting hard boiled eggs, they are white and oppressive.

If not for British colonialism, what language would Meghan be speaking?

LOOK AT ME!!!!!

Without colonialism and Western civilization most of the world would be Third World hellholes governed by tribalism and strongmen. And technology would be centuries behind where we are currently.

In other words, that’s the exact world the Left wants us to go back to.

Rhodes also stopped tribal warfare. The failure of present day Africa is the result of too quickly “decolonizing”. It has reverted back to tribalism and the “Big Chief” governance.

Deconstructing the basis of the “Pax Britannia/Pax Americana” will leave a world ripe for totalitarian rule.

Britain is now a historical theme park which will have its history washed away.

Well her father in law Prince Charles is nutty as a fruitcake, so Meghan isn’t adding much here.

I think most everybody on the planet realized that Harry made a blunder of historic proportions. Maybe it’s genetic—his mum was a royal fruitcake, too. With an able assist from dingbat Dad.

Denial of individual dignity. Judgment without principle. A rabid diversitist.

And THIS is what REAL racism and sexism looks like….

OleDirtyBarrister | February 19, 2019 at 5:22 pm

He he! This is exactly what England needs, imported leftwing actresses to tell them how to run the country.

Who could possibly know what England needs more than a foreign outsider who pretends to be someone else and reads lines that other people write?

All nations, companies, and professional firms should hire pretenders who regurgitate lines and put them in charge of the entire enterprise. Obviously, they are omnipotent and are more qualified than the people who make it to the top through the silly and outdated modes of formal education, job training, years of experience, etc. Just imagine how swell everything should be if we just hired poseurs to run things.

Queen Elizabeth II’s uncle marrying a divorced American caused all kinds of problems. Her grandson marrying this one may turn out to be far worse.

” diversity ” has always been(at least to the libtards)the code word for ” discrimination “–at least since the civil rights act of ’64–even humphrey, classic liberal that he was, wanted to rewrite/modify provisions of the act as he wrote and stated that said provisions would result in outright reverse-discrimination and a significant restriction of civil rights for those not in ” preferred ” groups/classes–and, of course, he was ignored and dismissed as being too soft on integration

I think she’s already worn out her welcome in Britain.

Eastwood Ravine | February 19, 2019 at 7:12 pm

Just a thought, what’s the over/under on her and Harry getting divorced?

Another story of a yenta with zero talent marrying into money and thinking she’s the one who earned all of it.

We knew this character was bad news for Harry. He’s been unhappy for a while now. He should have never married an older woman, let alone an ambitious, narcissistic American actress like this one. He could not have picked someone worse.

She totally played the poor guy. He had it made, and how he’s got this nightmare on his hands.

Btw, Meghan: F-U, you racist pig.

    Not to mention the fact that she is a previously-owned older model with considerable mileage.

    She is very demanding, and made the poor bastage give up shooting during the holidays. She will demand a new house, a new car, a new television, a new this, a new that, a new replacement for one thing and then another, and all Harry gets in return is…a used wife.

Every Monarchy that has ended, in one way or another, has had a Poison Pill.

Yes. A Poison Pill. Or a Pretty Poison.

Rasputin for the Romanovs.

Marie Antoinette for the French.

The Hapsburg king himself.

The last Bismark.

The British one thought they had dodged a bullet when Diana passed. Nope. Not done yet.

This woman is POISON, all over.

Too many English professors in English universities? Who’d a thunk it?

Make way for the Duchess of Wokeness!!

Is anyone surprised? Bring a half-porch-monkey into the Royal Family and expecting anything different?

If only we could ship all of our SJWs to England. Harry really pooped in his own nest marrying that one.

If only we could ship all of our SJWs to England. Harry really pooped in his own nest marrying that one.

Prince Harry must have inherited one of his mother’s sick genes to have married that mongrel bitch—poor queen Elizabeth having another nut case in the family.

“The aristocrats” has gone from a joke to a documentary.

Stinkbomb racist. Charles went Islamofascist, now this new “royal” advocates racism as an excuse for handing the rest of already leftist Brit academia over to the most radical communists. Disgusting.

Harry could not have been more vindictive and spiteful to the Royal Family by marrying this little “Tart” than if he had stuck his thumb and entire arm into the Queen’s eye.

This woman is a hypocrite.

Married into a white upper class institution. Enjoys the privileges then insults the people of this country with her racist bigotry.

Don’t like it love..? F**k off back where you came from.

But you won’t will you? You’re too comfortable with your privileged lifestyle.

Leave our history and culture alone and just cut ribbons and be decorative.

The royals are SUPPOSED TO BE ABOVE POLITICS SO BUTT OUT.

We don’t want your input.
