Shadow Health Minister Diane Abbott has apologised for any offence caused by comments she made on Twitter, after claims they were racist.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-16423278
She said she had not meant to generalise when she wrote: ''White people love playing 'divide & rule'".
It was a response to criticism of media use of "black community leaders" after the Stephen Lawrence murder trial.
Labour's Chuka Umunna said party leader Ed Miliband had told Ms Abbott her remarks were "unacceptable".
In a statement, Ms Abbott said: "I apologise for any offence caused.
Would it be politically incorrect to assert that race relations are not based solely on the whims of Western majorities, but on the actions of minorities as well? As we see here it is clear that while her claim may contain merit, it probably does, deteriorating race relations are always a result of the two opposing races, unable to escape from their everpresent conflict.
In utopia, the scales of racial justice are supposedly evened. But how do you prevent conflict when every option is a reaction to the past? That's why war is inevitable... that's why Ms. Abbott is right, and that is why white people should be offended that despite their most democratic intentions they have not created a Western utopia.
War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with, since without it an unhealthy development will follow, which excludes every advancement of the race, and therefore all real civilization.-Friedrich von Bernhardi
What can be said for a man who would allow his home to be invaded by strangers who demanded they be fed, clothed, housed and granted the rights of the first-born? What can be said for a ruling elite that permits this to be done to the nation, and who celebrate it as a milestone of moral progress?-Pat Buchanan
