In Rhodes We Trust - #DefundTheRhodesScholarship

As loyal readers know, the subject of the statue of Rhodes has featured on this site a few years ago. At the time the campaign to remove the statue was being fronted by someone who was in receipt of a Rhodes Scholarship.

Students don't get this hypocrisy thing!

Anyhoo, fast forward a few years and it seems that the Baizuo have had a pyrrhic victory with their campaign to have the statue of Rhodes taken down from Oriel College Oxford.

The college governors have voted to take it down, eventually, once planning procedures etc have been dealt with.

Given that anything associated with Rhodes, in the minds of the Baizuo, is now verboten I assume that they will now be moving heaven and earth to defund the Rhodes Scholarship and the Mandela Rhodes Foundation.

For the benefit of the Baizuo, who may not be as well educated as they think they are:

The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest (first awarded in 1902) and perhaps most prestigious international scholarship programme, enabling outstanding young people from around the world to study at the University of Oxford.

The Mandela Rhodes Foundation is one of Nelson Mandela’s three official legacy organisations, founded in 2003 in partnership with the Rhodes Trust. They find, fund, and empower young Africans who aspire towards the kind of leadership Mr Mandela embodied: leaders who can bridge historic divides and who use their talents for the betterment of their societies and the African continent.

They do this by providing a postgraduate scholarship for young leaders to study in South Africa, an experience which is accompanied by a residential Leadership Development Programme.
"We believe that leadership begins with inner transformation, and our Programmes are built on our founding principles of reconciliation, education, entrepreneurship and leadership."
Given that the Baizuo don't seem to believe in Mandela's methodology, I assume that they will be demanding that the Rhodes Scholarship is eliminated from Oxford? is brought to you by "The Living Brand"

  1. I got banned off a group on reddit for asking a guy for facts when they went on a rant about racist churchill.

    I tried to explain he (churchill) might be rascist by today's standards but at the time he was was absolutely doing the right thing. The guy didn't even know churchill got voted back in 1951.

    Suffice it to say, the snowflake "no platformed me" which on reddit these days means "first person to complain wins", which they did. Instant ban on my part. Not even able to ctc a moderator.

    It was a uk group. I'm done with social media. I'm done with snowflakes. Fuck 'em.
