In the continuing saga of an ignoramus and a priest …
A senior British National party official who described the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, as an “ambitious African” and said his fellow Ugandans threw spears at their enemies is being investigated for making racist remarks.
Simon Darby insists his comments were not racist.
I don’t see how that is offensive or racist. It can be twisted or distorted to look that way, but what I am saying is factual.
There are lots of indigenous people there [in Uganda] and in the bush they have spears – that is their lifestyle. I am not implying that all Ugandan people use spears at all. I was speaking specifically about the indigenous people. The spear is an integral part of their culture and lifestyle.
Once I’m done with my breakfast of warm buffalo blood and slugs, I’ll shower in the jungle waterfalls outside my cave and smear myself with pig fat. I’ll think I’ll wear my chicken bone earrings today; they go well with my goat skin skirt and my leopard teeth necklace.
Then perhaps I’ll join my friend Zamunda on his elephant hunt and help him set warthog traps. If it rains, I think I’ll stay indoors to compose a wailing dirge to my ancestors in a strange primitive tongue, sharpen my stone flints and send a message on my talking drum to Shakalaka in the next valley.
In the evening I’ll go dig up a baby’s skull for a game of footie with the neighbors.
It’s gonna be busy, but only after my supper of wild mushrooms, ostrich eggs and giraffe intestines, will I write an appropriate response to Mr. Darby.
Have a savage day!
