Oh, good. More destruction of white culture in the pursuit of whatever it is we’re pursuing with that project.
Mahatma Gandhi will be the first non-white person on British currency.
The Royal Mint Advisory Committee, which recommends themes and designs for coins, has started work on a coin featuring the Indian independence leader.
Gandhi was assassinated five months after the end of British rule in August 1947.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak, who is of Indian origin, has offered his support to a campaign to help recognise the efforts of black and minority ethnic (BAME) people in shaping modern Britain.
In a letter to Zehra Zaidi, a former Tory candidate who leads the We Too Built Britain campaign, Mr Sunak said: ‘Black, Asian and other ethnic minority communities have made a profound contribution to the shared history of the UK.’
Gandhi will be the first BAME person to feature on British currency, although figures such as Walter Tull – the Army’s first black officer – have featured on commemorative coins, but not legal tender.
Miss Zaidi told The Sunday Telegraph: ‘We welcome the Chancellor’s support.’
British Finance Minister Rishi Sunak wrote to the Royal Mint Advisory Committee (RMAC), asking them to pursue recognition of individuals from BAME communities on the UK’s coinage, the UK Treasury said.
A statement from the UK Treasury, emailed late on Saturday, said: ‘RMAC is currently considering a coin to commemorate Gandhi.’
Gandhi led a revolution against the British. It’s never really been clear to me exactly what his issue was. He’s a hero to white people because he fought against white people, but I can’t imagine the average Indian thinks very much of him.
Putting pictures of people who fought against you out of hatred for your race on your money is a unique behavior.
We are really locked into this path of “everything white is evil, everything that hurts white people is good.” It’s hard to imagine any way out of it short of a total collapse.
