UK: Whites Need Not Apply Report;
Posted on: 2005-11-18 13:16:01
Book competition not for whites News article filed by BNP news team Don't bother picking up a Penguin this Christmas. Further evidence that indigenous Britons are second class citizens in these island homelands of ours comes from the blatant anti-white racism displayed by one of Britain’s leading book publishers. Penguin Books, part of the international media group Pearson PLC, owners of the Financial Times, is holding a literary competition inviting submissions on a fictional theme aimed at an adult readership; but whites are excluded! The "decibel Penguin prize" is an opportunity for talented writers from culturally diverse backgrounds to showcase their work. It is also a chance for Penguin to discover promising new writers. The successful entries will be included in an anthology which will be published by Penguin in November 2006, with a percentage of the proceeds of book sales being awarded to the successful authors.However, as the competition entry form states: “All entrants must be residents of the UK from an African, Asian or Caribbean background. ‘Asian’ in this context refers to the continent of Asia from Turkey in the West to Japan in the East.” Although it is not clear whether indigenous Britons who were born in say, Hong Kong during the time that the city was a British colony are eligible, just which box on the entry form would a white entrant tick? There are boxes for Asian Pakistani, Asian Bangladeshi, Black Caribbean, Black African and Chinese but not a box for white Europeans. Taxpayers’ cash Public money is also being used in the "decibel Penguin Prize," because this year for the first time Penguin Books and the Arts Council England are joining forces to give new writers from culturally diverse backgrounds the opportunity to showcase their work, with the aim of discovering fresh talent. Arts Council England is jointly funded from the public purse and the National Lottery Commission. The Minister for Culture David Lammy -- himself of Afro-Caribbean origin -- is the patron for the prize and the judging panel includes Hari Kunzru and Margaret Busby with further judges to be confirmed shortly. Championing diversity Championing cultural diversity is one of the Arts Council’s core ambitions. It is encouraging an environment where the arts reflect the full range and diversity of contemporary society. The Council wants everyone to have access to excellent arts activity. To make this happen, it is focussing on race and ethnicity, disability and social inclusion. It has exceeded its aim that by 2007/08 more than 10 per cent of regularly funded organisations are Black and minority ethnic. With Christmas shopping now upon us Britons angered by this blatant anti-white racism might like to think twice before purchasing any of the Penguin books, which includes Dorling Kindersley, the children’s range of Puffin Books, Hamish Hamilton, Michael Joseph and the Ladybird children’s titles.
