Mainstream Media: Ireland’s Classrooms Too White
Ireland’s classrooms are too white and children “should learn about black history from an early age” to fight racism, according to the country’s mainstream media.
National public broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTE) and the Irish Times both published pieces praising Black Lives Matter
(BLM) protests against “police racism” which have erupted into violence around the world.
Ireland, which has seen protests against the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd six thousand kilometres away in the United States, must do more to boost the nation’s “anti-racist” credentials, according to the mainstream media outlets.
RTE lamented that teachers in Ireland are mostly “white and middle class” in a piece insisting it is “so important to have ethnic diversity in Ireland” because “if you can’t see it you can’t be it”.
In an article entitled ‘Ethnic Diversity Matters in Irish Classrooms’, published Saturday, the state media company spoke to teachers and academics who argued that racial diversity is “enriching”.
These included Dr Ebun Joseph, a ‘Race Relations Consultant’ who has hailed controversial scholar Noel Ignatiev — who demanded that “the white race” is “not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed” — and his call to “abolish whiteness”.
