In June 2018, Gopal criticised the alleged racial profiling by college porters at the gate of King’s College, Cambridge. On the subject of racial profiling, here is what racial profiling is
Racial profiling, is not limited only to an individual’s ethnicity or race, but can also be based on the individual’s religion, or national origin.
Gopal, Who allegedly was a victim of racial profiling seems to either not understand or doesn’t care that by saying ‘White Lives Don’t Matter’ is also racial profiling to the highest degree.
Assuming we live in a free and equal United Kingdom, It is plain to see that she should is guilty of an offence under Section 19 of the Public Order Act 1986. It just wouldn’t be fair seeing that in December 2019 in Birmingham a person was arrested for distributing poster that had intent to stir up racial hatred and in the same year people were arrested in the Labour Antisemitism probe
Imagine if, God forbid, People came out and said Black Lives DON’T Matter, Imagine the uproar! (And yes, This happens, And yes they should also be subject to the law) We believe that ALL LIVES MATTER.
Please DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT start tweeting, emailing, or anything of the likes, threats or hate towards Priyamvada. If you disagree with what she has said please go through the correct channels in a civil and proper manner.
