He is a proper black man!

How racist is it to question the racial identity of this proud Black man?
A theatre director chose an African name and scooped taxpayer funding for ethnic minority arts leaders despite admitting his parents and grandparents were all white. Anthony Ekundayo Lennon has worked on all-black productions and last year won a paid traineeship as a 'theatre practitioner of colour'.

Born to Irish parents but naturally darker-skinned, Mr Lennon has called himself a 'born-again African' and said in 2012 that he had 'gone through the struggles of a black man'. Starting his career as an actor he embraced his chosen black identity and took a middle name from an African name book as he felt his given name did not 'fulfil' him any more, The Sunday Times reported.
Since race is only skin deep, how can anyone doubt the veracity of a man who claims he is black, any more than one doubts the veracity of a man who claims he is a woman?

So offended. Someone call the SPLC already.

My hope is that we could pass Most Favored Race legislation. To finely end discrimination, all Americans should have the right to declare themselves whatever race they chose. Thus Americans who are not in the most favored race could gain the benefits of the most favored race by declaring themselves as members of that race, ending racial discrimination once and for all.

Well... alright. Perhaps got some African somewhere in his ancestry.

Anyways, definitely can see why he says he relates to being Black.

Hope the best for him going forward.

I'd honestly think he was biracial at first glance too without knowing both his biological parents are white Irish people.

Seen even more extreme real life cases on this on some YouTube vids about black people having biological white parents and white people having biological black parents.

Life's funny "irony" lol.

SJWs flipped from "gender is a social construct" to "you're born this way and it's unchangeable" at record-breaking speeds. It was quite amazing to watch. But it also made it clear that they only respond to social validation and threat of humiliation. There is no point debating them in good faith about anything. They should be bullycided.

I can't recall what it was they had to come up with, but they taxed the local heavily, done on a tribal level. The occupation was more ruthless than usual.

I favor the passing of a Most Favored Person law. As some groups are discriminated against, each of us should be allowed to declare we are whatever race or sex we wish to be. This would allow the discriminated against to enter the favored group by declaration. Hey, why should only the weirdos get the benefit of this stuff. I say spread it around.

"OT: Can anyone give me a hint at why in the world Belgians would want to live in the Congo?"

Belgian's didn't necessarily want to live there, but the Belgian government saw it as a land of riches, and they wanted a piece of that action.


From britannica.com:

"Private European and American corporations invested heavily in the Belgian Congo after World War I. Large plantations (growing cotton, oil palms, coffee, cacao, and rubber) and livestock farms were developed. In the interior, gold, diamonds, copper, tin, cobalt, and zinc were mined; the colony became an important source of uranium for the United States during World War II. Africans worked the mines and plantations as indentured labourers on four- to seven-year contracts, in accordance with a law passed in Belgium in 1922. Roads, railroads, electric stations, and public buildings were constructed by forced labour."

What it would destroy would be their ability to give preference to one group at the expense of another because it would botch up their data. In most things the pandering to a race or sex would be over because they couldn't implement. How do you give preference when anybody could benefit?

It goes like this. A bank has to give 40% of its house loans to blacks regardless of creditworthiness or they are guilty of discrimination based on race because they live in an area where 40% of the population is black. So a white guy like me declares himself a black guy and gets a loan based on creditworthiness. And if they make me furnish a picture based on race on, that would be violation of the Most Favored Person law. Plus I could reasonably have the right to furnish the picture of a black guy to avoid discrimination.

The beauty of the thing is that the alleged to be discriminated group would be forced to argue for preference based on being given preference and not being willing to share it. Thus hard to sell an affirmative action program based on ill treatment.

Blogger Trebor Nosemaj November 04, 2018 10:00 PM  

Even though it's a ludicrous claim, after checking out the story I'm a little bit conflicted because he claims that the only roles he gets cast for are black/mixed race type roles which makes sense to me because his features really do look more "black" than "white". Bizarrely this white Irish/British guy might be facing genuine discrimination for not being white enough for certain roles. He may have tired out swimming against the tide of other people's perception in his industry and just said "Fuck it...I'll embrace what they're labelling me because I can't win otherwise." Unlike Rachel Dolazel, other people may have originally fashioned his identity rather than it coming from him. However, he still has a moral choice to make, and his justification that everyone comes from Africa is hilarious and unintentionally self-defeating - opening the floodgates for the likes of Brad Pitt & Benedict Cumberbatch to undercut him for Sub-saharan roles.

Supposedly, Phillip of Spain's great armada was hit by a hurricane force storm on the way to invade Elizabethan England, and a number of the "Spanish" seamen made it to shore in Ireland after their ships foundered. This might explain the rather rough and dark appearance of many Irishmen.

Blogger Johnny November 04, 2018 11:02 PM  

Perhaps this dark Irishman should spend the hundred bucks and get a DNA test. As far as being discriminated against owing to appearance, that is universal in Hollywood for the actors.

The actor Redd Fox had a joke about it. A black guy, he wanted to be an extra in a Tarzan movie, but they told him he was too light. And so he gained some weight and came back another time. The second time around they told him he was too fat along with being too light.

You just described 'Black Irish'. My Paternal Grandfather was from Roscommon and was Black Irish: dark hair, dark complexion. My Maternal Grandfather was from Cork and looked much more like what is often referred to as 'Dublin Irish': Reddish blonde hair, light complexion. The Irish don't all look alike except possibly to Cankles Clinton.

Blogger linesy November 05, 2018 1:52 AM  

My take away from the article was that if you are a failed black actor etc, the assumption is that its not your fault and its whiteness that held you down. Thus the state should shower you with money. The BAME schemes are all over the place in the UK, based on the frankly racist idea that these individuals would not make it by themselves. The idea that they would rise to their level by themselves is regarded as racist. The worst outcomes in the UK are for 'working class' white boys, there is no scheme for them, except, of course, the monies given to their single Mother's for conceiving them.

In all seriousness, there are Irish mythological exchanges with a "blue people" -- and the Berber/Tuareg in North Africa might be in play (or slaves taken therefrom) as they have a fondness for blue in their traditional garments.
