Dr Gopal has taken to threatening legal action against people circulating a doctored tweet in which a Stalin quote is attributed to her. She bizarrely threatened legal action against a bemused Darren Grimes on Monday morning, despite the fact he'd never shared or even referenced the fake tweet. However, it soon transpired that there was an even more provocative tweet that was definitely not fake and at the time of writing is still there for all to see. It dates from February 2019 (see Twitter thread below).
If the shoe was on the other foot and a white professor had tweeted this about black men they would be out of a job by the end of the day. How has our society reached a position where those in powerful positions deem it acceptable to incite racial hatred as long as it's directed against white people?
Just a reminder that the following Labour MPs follow the racist professor on Twitter:
Stella Creasy (Walthamstow)
Clive Lewis (Norwich South)
Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi (Slough)
Zarah Sultana (Coventry South)
Claudia Webbe (Leicester East)
Nadia Whittome (Nottingham East)
