Your Ethnic History is being Erased

The London Telegraph reports:
Cambridge is teaching students that Anglo-Saxons did not exist as a distinct ethnic group as part of efforts to undermine “myths of nationalism”.

Britain’s early medieval history is taught by the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, but the terms within its own title are being addressed as part of efforts to make teaching more “anti-racist”.

Its teaching aims to “dismantle the basis of myths of nationalism” by explaining that the Anglo-Saxons were not a distinct ethnic group, according to information from the department.

The department’s approach also aims to show that there were never “coherent” Scottish, Irish and Welsh ethnic identities with ancient roots.

The increased focus on anti-racism comes amid a broader debate over the continued use of terms like “Anglo-Saxon”, with some in academia alleging that the ethnonym is used to support “racist” ideas of a native English identity.

Are your fee-fees hurt?
Does your ass feel sore from having it whipped in every rational discussion?
Do you frequently go blind from the sun shining off pesky pasty white people?
Do you pop-out at parties for lack of Vegemeatavitamin(TM)?
Or feel raped and pillaged from being culturally appropriated?

Well, here at Loonie Toon Labs(TM), we have the solution to all your ills!

Every time you encounter something in history you don't like, Simply pretend it didn't happen!
In just a few short semesters you will start to believe the MOST AMAZING THINGS! And be entirely prepared to go out into the world and professionally riot and burn things down as you mock your elders for being so culturally insensitive and Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrracist! (you have to roll your 'r' to pronounce it correctly).

Only in the West do we value vapid clueless stupid children to this extent. We spared the rod and got a extra large bucket of spoiled ass crazy.
