There has been fierce competition for the most woke statement of 2021, but I am confident in proclaiming we have a winner, even with six months to go.
The School Strike 4 Climate Auckland have announced they are disbanding because they are racist.
This is a feat of woke purity that reminds me of The Life of Brian with the Judean People’s Front.
Some aspects of their statement that make them the winner for 2021 include:
- Declaring they have been a racist space
- They need to decolonise themselves
- The repeated use of the US term BIPOC
- Their failure to pay reparations to BIPOC groups
- Their declaration that all future climate change groups must be BIPOC led and any Pakeha led groups should be discouraged
This is a level of self-flagellation that can’t be beat.
