So, it’s come to this.

We are now officially looking at a Pakistani leader of the UK.

Someone could say “yeah but the US had a black president all the way back in 2008!” But the comparison doesn’t work. Firstly, Barack Obama wasn’t “black,” he was a mulatto only raised by white people, due to having experienced “disappearing black father syndrome.”

Where’s daddy??? Secondly, black people are actually American. Under slavery they were viewed as Americans, under Jim Crow they were viewed as Americans both by opponents and proponents of slavery and Jim Crow. There is no real argument that black people are not “Americans.”

There are arguments that black people should be rounded up and sent back to Africa, course, and those arguments may have some validity. There are also slightly less extreme arguments that even though black people are Americans, they do not represent the core American population, and therefore it is inappropriate to have a black person (or a mulatto) as the leader of America. That argument is not only valid, but one which I agree with entirely. Lots of countries have had ethnic minorities, and considered them equal under the law, but also not wanted them in positions of authority over the majority.

Whatever the case, I am definitely against a black president of America. (I might not be against blacks having their own, separate black president, but that’s a whole other issue.)

Nonetheless, a black president of America is not comparable to a Pakistani Prime Minister of the UK. I can explain to you why America has black people, and again, I don’t think there is a real argument that they are “not American.” However, I don’t think anyone can explain why there are Pakistanis in the UK, or how it is possible for a Pakistani to be “British.”

Whereas black Americans were brought to America, and then completely immersed in American culture and have zero connection to Africa beyond their genetics, Pakistanis just showed up in the UK inexplicably, and continue to maintain a strict connection to their ethnic homeland.

Whereas a black president of America is a clear moral outrage and a true abomination, a Pakistani PM of the UK is reverse colonization, and a handing of control of the government over to a foreign power.
