The UK celebrated its 34th year of Black History Month and decided this year’s theme would be “Proud to Be.” While pulling out all the stops, the UK was caught allowing taxpayer-funded advertisements to be promoted on a Black History Month website that claimed white people are “genetically defective descendants of albino mutants” and that the white man “fantasies that he is genetically equal to the black male.” 

First reported by The Telegraph, the Black History Month website is first to appear online when searched. The website also includes content by famous black figures and major political parties as advertisements for the police and MI6 play alongside. 


While the website has a long history of promoting racist content towards white people, most followers were shocked to learn the site is managed by… a white man named Ian Thomas. 

With the news that both taxpayer dollars were going towards anti-white propaganda and that the person behind the website was a white man, Thomas and the government received a fair share of criticism. When Linda Bellos, who famously launched the Black History Month in the UK during the 80s, found out a white man ran the site, she compared it to “enslavement.” 

“The whole purpose of Black History Month is to empower us [black people] … I don’t want some white man, or even white woman, playing that role. The taking of ideas, and indeed the taking of people, was done very successfully by the British, it is called enslavement. I am not talking about his motives, but I am talking about the outcome.”

  As for the website’s belief that all white people are somehow genetically disordered, users online were quick to fight that narrative. One said, “If that was the case, then surely they would want to return to their country of origin rather than mix with genetically defective mutants. What can our attraction possibly be?”


Another user jokingly said, “It’s amazing how so many white people have overcome their genetic defects and done so well in life.”


While the site might promote radical ideas, one user summed it up perfectly.  “The person who runs the website which published those comments is deliberately trying to wind people up interestingly that person is white. My view is don’t let those types of people divide us. That’s their ultimate aim. It’s not a reflection on Black History Month.”
