In our ethnically diverse, politically correct country we respect every culture but should this be to the detriment of our own? I was interested to see that the National Society of Church Schools celebrate their bicentenary with a service at Westminster Abbey today. On taking a look at their web site I was surprised to see that the only white face visible is that of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
This mirrors something I have puzzled over for some time. I regularly watch BBC News bulletins so it can't be simply chance that in reports about schools a white face is rarely seen. Why? In archive footage the position is reversed. Have we reached the stage where it is no longer acceptable to show indigenous white children for fear of being branded racist?
