The Racism of Food
Now here's a thing that I had never realised before, until Nanny very kindly pointed it out. In my naive, happy go lucky 45 years on this planet I had assumed that people's likes and dislikes when it comes to food were down to what they had been brought up on, local availability and personal taste preferences.
How wrong was I!
Seemingly ones' choice of food, or rather what one chooses not to eat, is racist.
Gosh, I never knew that!
That at least is the conclusion of Nanny's National Children's Bureau (NCB), which has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
Seemingly racism is construed as a child of eg three who says "yuk", in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.
The guidance also warns playgroup leaders that babies should not be ignored, as they can "recognise different people in their lives".
The NCB's dire warning come in an "easy to read" and doubtless "cheap" to produce 366 page guide for staff in charge of pre-school children, called Young Children and Racial Justice.
The guide warns that children might also "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuk'".
Staff are told:
"No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist incident, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action."
Public flogging maybe?
Nurseries are told to report as many incidents as possible to their local council.
"Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution. In fact, the opposite is the case."
Let us be clear, the NCB is encouraging the creation of a police state whereby people are proactively told to report every single "incident" to their local council.
Now you know what your local council is really for, thought crime reporting!
I have nothing but contempt for any organisation that encourages such behaviour. This bunch of fascists (NCB) takes £12M a year out of our pockets, in order to fund its perverted view of the world.
Let us be very clear, a child's attitudes to food are formed by what it is given to eat, and how the parent administers discipline at the dining table. The weaker the parent, the more fussy and spoilt the child.
Racism has nothing to do with it.
