Uncle Tom’s cabinet

Boris Johnson’s appointment of ethnic-minority ministers has unmasked the ugly racism of identity politics.

Boris Johnson has appointed the most ethnically diverse cabinet in history. Almost a fifth of all ministers come from a minority ethnic background. Two of the great offices of state are occupied by politicians with family backgrounds from the Indian subcontinent: Sajid Javid and Priti Patel.

We live in a world where diversity rules. Achieving ethnic diversity, in particular, is viewed as an overarching progressive goal for businesses, the arts and politics. ‘Now more than ever, we need to celebrate the profound and enriching transformation brought by the diversity of people in this country, with all their different experiences, talents and contributions’, reads the Labour Party’s 2017 manifesto.

In that case, you might expect Johnson’s cabinet appointments to be a cause for celebration. But you’d be wrong. Instead, many on the left – mostly other ethnic minorities, in fact – were quick to denounce the newly appointed ministers. Shadow treasury minister Clive Lewis sarcastically congratulated Conservative chairman James Cleverly, accusing him and other ethnic-minority ministers of ‘selling their souls’ for office. Novara Media’s Ash Sarkar dismissed the ‘ascendence of Priti Patel and Sajid Javid’ as ‘tokenism’, accusing them of assimilating ‘oppressive ideologies in return for representation’.

It gets worse. Canary editor Kerry-Anne Mendoza tweeted that any politician that ‘serves in a far-right government’ (itself a ludicrous accusation) ‘is no longer a person of colour. They are a turncoat of colour.’ A writer in the Huffington Post said she was ashamed of Patel and Javid: ‘We can’t let our young look to them for inspiration because they are a product of internalised whiteness… Patel is used as a pawn in white supremacy and takes it in her stride.’ This goes way beyond disagreements over policy, whether on immigration and Brexit. These ministers are being slurred as Uncle Toms and race traitors. They are being singled out for attack entirely on the basis of their race.

Less heated critiques of Patel and Javid have labelled their appointments as ‘window dressing’. The diversity of the cabinet is a ‘distraction’ from Tory racism, argues Kehinde Andrews in the Guardian. His ire is more focused on Johnson, ‘parading a set of token figures to legitimise his agenda’. But the sense pervades that these ministers, even if they are not outright race traitors, are inauthentic ethnic minorities. ‘A cabinet packed with ministers with brown skin wearing Tory masks’ is surely just a long-winded way of calling them coconuts.

Certainly, there has always been something skin-deep about the diversity obsession and there is a legitimate critique to be made of it. We can all agree, for instance, that Britain’s first female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, was no feminist. And in terms of race, it has never been a given that ‘black faces in high places’ will translate into improved conditions for ethnic minorities in general. Nevertheless, everyone is usually expected to pay lip service to the politics of diversity or find themselves branded a ‘bigot’.

In fact, diversity and the politics of identity have played a key role in facilitating these ugly outbursts. Traditional anti-racist politics – working towards the abolition of race – has been turned upside down. Today, the identitarian impulse has taken over. Everyone is exalted to think racially and to see race as part of their personal and political identity. Some even argue that it is racist to refuse to acknowledge racial differences. Races are also divided into oppressor and oppressed. The white race is, naturally, the chief oppressor group and even its most hard-up members are said to benefit from ‘white privilege’.

In this worldview, people are increasingly seen not as individuals, independent of their race, but as ‘representatives’ of their race. In politics, this burdens ethnic minorities with the expectation that they will hold the ‘correct’ views. These ethnic-minority Tories have committed the cardinal sin against diversity by thinking for themselves. They have crossed a line and defied what is expected of them as ethnic minorities.

The dehumanising slurs and accusations of race treachery thrown at Javid, Patel and others are a product of a worldview that reduces all individuals to their immutable characteristics. Identity politics is inherently dehumanising. That it has now taken such an ugly turn against ethnic minorities should surprise no one.

Let’s see… The Muslims that support Corbyn are great… even tho they support mudering gay people, stoning women to death for getting raped, throwing bricks at children.

Just thought I’d get some clarity…

It is purely because Corbyn has this strange obsessive affinity with the most heinously brutal terror fanatics on the planet. He has even accepted their gold in his quest to betray his own kind and condone the hatred of the Jewish nation.

“When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them, after suitable buildups, as fascist or Nazi or anti-Semitic, and use the prestige of antifascist and tolerance organizations to discredit them. In the public mind constantly associate those who oppose us with those names that already have a bad smell. The association will, after enough repetition, become fact in the public mind.”

Certainly seems true, even if the source of this quote is uncertain.

Identity politics is inherently dehumanising. That it has now taken such an ugly turn against ethnic minorities should surprise no one.

Yes, yes, it’s taken such an ugly turn that ethnic minorities are abandoning Labour in their millions.

How many times will the cisgender white male Big Brains at Spiked tell communities of colour what is bad for them before it sinks in that communities of colour aren’t listening? Your whitesplaining doesn’t work — not in the UK, not in the US, not anywhere. This may be because communities of colour are too stupid to realize what’s in their own best interests.

Alternatively, it may be because they realize that cisgender white males don’t have the best interests of communities of colour at heart. Or any understanding of communities of colour.

Depite the coconuts Sajid Javid and Priti Patel, the Muslim community and other communities of colour will continue to vote overwhelmingly for progress, hope and tolerance. They see the toxic Tories and Bozza the Bullingdon Boy for exactly what they are: toxic and reeking with white cisgender male privilege. And no amount of brownwashing or blackwashing will remove the stink.

Amelia, can you write some more please? I occasionally write (unpaid) for various publications on identity politics and its contradictions, though in a lighthearted vein. Your replies are beautifully written and manage to engage in a few sentences all the nostrums and beliefs of left-wingers like yourself. Great material and I read your stuff with careful attention. Can you write something on the ‘climate emergency’ – I think it is the one area you may have missed.

Amelia Cantor

30th July 2019 at 1:02 pm

Thank you, John. The opinions of a cisgender white male such as yourself mean as much to me as they do to communities of colour.

Can you write something on the ‘climate emergency’ – I think it is the one area you may have missed.

It’s good of you to ask, but I prefer to leave activism around the climate emergency in the safe hands of George Monbiot and Greta Thunberg. They have the expertise that I lack.

Labour passionately believes that anyone not white belongs to their own ethnic ghetto and should stay there. The Labour Party speaks endlessly of “communities” and “community leaders”. What they are thinking of is the idyllic situation of ghetto members turning over their ballot papers to those community leaders for completeion. The ideas of social integration and people thinking for themselves are anathema to Labour.

Amelia Cantor

And they do stay there, Neil. Puzzlingly, the dazzling good looks and high intelligence of folk such as yourself don’t attract them to the Enlightened side of politics.

It’s not racist to call someone an ‘Uncle Tom’, because that epithet is a comment on the person’s character, not on their racial characteristics.

The epithet comes from the time of black slavery in America. Blacks characterised other blacks as UncleToms. It’s nonsensical to contend that, in doing so, they were being racist.

Black people who collude with the Tories (who are indeed racist, as exemplified by their ‘hostile environment’ and Windrush scandals and foreign wars) are being called UncleToms.

You may disagree with that contention; you may even argue it is an ugly smear. But you cannot argue that the flaw with the contention is that it is *racist*.

Thomas Sagan

29th July 2019 at 8:55 am

“It’s not racist to call someone an ‘Uncle Tom’, because that epithet is a comment on the person’s character, not on their racial characteristics.”

Is that so? Can you point to anyone with white ‘racial characteristics’ who has been called an Uncle Tom? If not, that epithet is indeed racist as it is only used against people based on their skin colour.

Jerry Owen

The phrase ‘Uncle Tom’ is not used because of someone’s racial characteristic.. then no doubt you can name a few white ‘Uncle Tom’s’ and a few Jewish ‘Uncle Toms’ ?

Gerard Barry

To call any political party “racist” based on its efforts to bring immigration down (something which they’re not actually achieving anyway, as Winston Stanley’s posts show) is most unfair.

Neil McCaughan

29th July 2019 at 11:03 am

Are the Tories more, or less racist than Labour, Europe’s leading anti-semitic party?

I’m guessing you’re ok with anti semitism, and will seek to exonerate Labour.

Joe Salem

29th July 2019 at 12:32 pm

I can hardly believe that this needs to be said but let me break it down for you:

It is racist to refer to somebody as an ‘Uncle Tom’ based on their political persuasion because the implication is that they should act in accordance with some pre-determined allegiance based on their race.

It may be difficult for people like you to believe but brown and black-skinned folk don’t all share a left-wing hive mind, they are capable of making independent political judgments.

I did comment previously about the One Nation feel of Boris’s cabinet. The ‘ethnics’ that he has chosen are people who are not defined by their ethnicity, they are people who talk about other things. I noticed that Kwame Kwarteng managed to edge out of view on the group photo ( I always try to do that on group photos), but I like the cut of his jib. He speaks intelligently and he doesn’t go on about his ‘blackness’. I actually googled him to check the spelling of his name and I saw that he actually went to Eton and Cambridge. The politics of identity has been dominated by identitarians and the Left and Theresa May bought into this fully. There are plenty of ‘ethnics’ who are not from the identitarian Left who have been squeezed out of the discussion. Johnson’s cabinet signals the possibility that the Left’s monopoly may now be challenged. Having said all of this we have to remember that we are talking about the Conservative Party. The Conservative Party is the party of the establishment. One Nation Tories or Liberals at their best can be progressive and radical and humanistic, but it is like the difference between a good and a bad boss, we might even respect and admire a good boss, but he is still the boss. I think that the charitable instinct is a good thing, paternalism not so good. But the point of being a good ruler or a charitable person is that you remain in control, you decide what to give, how much to give, you will give when it is convenient for you, and you retain the right to withdraw your benevolence. Tony Blair believes that most people are not interested in government and just want the governing classes to get on with it. There may be something in this, if the Tories deliver on Brexit, defeat identity politics, and rule in a just and honourable way, so be it. However maybe someday we will have a truly universalist working class government, and maybe one day we will be in a position where we can be charitable and paternalistic and benevolent.

MSM?

Winston Stanley

The first assumption is that the TP is any less committed to mass immigration and integration than the LP.

True, the TP committed itself to “bring down migration to the tens of thousands” in the 2010 TP election manifesto and the 2015 TP manifesto under Cameron, and the 2017 TP manifesto under T. May.

But that was just to get votes at elections, especially with the rise of UKIP. Although the TP could not control migration from within the EU before Brexit, it did absolutely nothing to control immigration from outside the EU, over which it had full control. Senior Tories were always against the policy to reduce immigration and the TP never had any intention to follow through. The TP sheerly lied to the demos to get votes and to win elections.

Net immigration to the UK between 2010, when Cameron was elected, and 2018 was 2,326,000. Actual immigration during that period, not substracting emigration from the UK, was 5,311,000. With an average of around 600,000, the figure is likely to pass 6,000,000 by the end of October when UK is supposed to leave the EU.

Boris has now made it clear that he is dumping the thrice manifesto commitment to reduce immigration to the 10s of thousands after Brexit.

It is hard to say that the TP, a party which let in 6,000,000 immigrants in a 9 year period is anti-mass immigration. True the overt policy was to massively reduce immigration, but the TP never had any intention of doing so. It did nothing to control non-EU immigration, over which it had complete control, and it knew that it could do nothing about EU immigration before Brexit. And the TP has now dumped any commitment to reduce immigration after Brexit.

It is clear that the TP is totally committed to mass immigration. It is above all a capitalist state party, which does the bidding of the capitalist state. The capitalist state above all is concerned with the expansion of the capitalist economy and it wants mass immigration to expand the workforce and the domestic market. That has always been true and it is especially true these days when productivity growth has been close to zero over the last ten years.

The TP simply lied to the demos, while implementing the interests of the capitalist state. The capitalist state is fully committed to a multiracial Britain, and the TP no less so than the LP. The TP has a strategy of mass immigration coupled with mass integration, no less than the LP. There is nothing between them on that.

So, politicians with an immigrant background are no more going against the objective of an harmonious multiracial Britain by backing the TP than they do by backing the LP. The entire British state is committed to that, the TP no less than the LP.

It is just posturing from the LP and from the left to pretend otherwise. Mass immigration and integration is not a “left wing” policy per se. It has its origins in the needs of the capitalist base, and thus it is “right wing” in origin. The right, no less than the left, is totally committed to it.

The illusion that support for mass immigration is “left wing” has served the TP well over the last decade, it has allowed them to pose as if they are in any way against it, in three manifestos, which undoubtedly helped the TP to overcome the threat of UKIP and to get elected three times.

On that reading, the LP has actually helped the TP to get elected, by maintaining the pretence that the TP is against mass immigration and integration. The LP stand to gain nothing from that approach, if the last three elections are anything to go by. The LP may do well to drop the illusion that the TP is against mass immigration, an illusion that the TP has clearly and openly nurtured as part of its own successful election campaigns.

UK politics needs more honesty, both from the TP and the LP. Elections should be fought on an honest basis, not on the basis of an ID politics that is structured around myths and illusions about the various intentions of TP and LP on mass immigration and integration. The TP and LP are peas in a pod on that count and it is silly to pretend otherwise.

Winston Stanley

28th July 2019 at 6:20 pm

So, if the LP ever wants to get elected again, then it may do well to drop the ID posturing, and stop building the TP pretence that is against mass immigration and integration – and to focus on an honest politics and on policies that will benefit all of the peoples of Britain.

But as we see with the DP in the USA, there seems to be little chance of that. They will continue to bang on with ID politics, even when the evidence is that it does them more harm than good. The left is stuck in ruts and it simply looks tired out and totally incapable of reimagining itself.

The TP and the LP are of course both capitalist state parties, so there does not seem to be any real reason why they should have different policies anyway. What does the LP exist for? If they are for the betterment of the working class, then what distinct policies do they have to facilitate that?

The TP has just as much interest in working class mobility as the LP, in so far as it means that workers are more productive, and in so far as it means that there is stability within capitalist society. Mobility depends on a more productive economy, and the TP is just as committed to that as the LP – notwithstanding that productivity growth has been zero over the last ten years.

So what policies does the LP have to improve productivity growth? And what would be distinctively “left” about building the capitalist base? The LP would simply be trying to do the TP’s job better than the TP.

So what is the LP left with? ID posturing, that likely does more harm than good, and posturing about the material wellbeing of the worst off? The LP needs to think long and hard about why it even exists and what policies it might come out with, for the entire country, which are not capitalist state TP policies anyway. Otherwise, why exist at all?

Martin Bishop

28th July 2019 at 8:41 pm

That sounds like a pretty accurate summary of the situation to me, although I suspect that until a decent alternative to FPTP can be implemented there will be nothing more than a watered down TP on offer as a TP alternative, which is what we have had during the TB/GB years. Expecting either LP or TP to offer any kind of FPTP alternative would be to expect turkeys to vote for Christmas, so the left are without any political vehicle of their own at present, possibly permanently. I’m inclined to agree with Bret Weinstein’s suggestion that an alliance of Libertarian left and right against authoritarian left and right would be the better way forward. I assume the mass immigration you speak of is due to having an economic system dependent on the creation of ever increasing debt to function?

Fraser Miles suggests we should praise the enrichment of ideas and experience that diversity has given us using Boris’s recruiting as an example.
I don’t do identity politics, so I profoundly hope these people ( of colour ) have been recruited because of their commitment to Brexit and their belief in Conservatism.
Their ethnicity should be of no consequence.

Gerard Barry

28th July 2019 at 5:01 pm

The racialised remarks against these Tory cabinet members are truly shocking but, alas, not very surprising. The idea that people from ethnic minorities should be left-leaning is one found now in all Western countries. I first became aware of this “phenomenon” from reading online articles by Michelle Malkin, a conservative American journalist of Filipino descent. She claimed – and regularly posted vicious tweets she had received to prove it – that American “liberals” hated nobody more than they hated people of colour who dared to hold conservative political views. Sad but true.

Jim Lawrie

28th July 2019 at 2:40 pm

Identity politics started over 100 years ago with the middle class left assumption of their right to the unquestioning support of those they had deigned to help – the working class.
They have a whole vocabulary of put downs developed around it – class traitor, working class Tory, I can’t believe someone like you could think that, chip on his shoulder, etc …. all harking back to that assumption, and taking it to its logical conclusion that these ingrates are not to be reasoned with, as they are political criminals to be condemned.
Having ditched the working class for a new constituency of effniks, it is no surprise that when they do not play the part scripted to them the reaction is the same.

In the USA it comes in is taking the form of an open attack on the white working class. With the effniks joining in. The same is happening here.

There are working class tories. There are champagne socialists. While one’s social origins and parental models often influence one’s adult political inclinations, there are many individuals who question nurtured values fundamentally. “I got where I am by talent and hard work”, is a common claim by people who overcame disadvantage and excelled beyond the dreams of their parents. Other people will claim that another ingredient is needed to overcome humble social origins – good luck, and maybe a modicum of cunning. The self-made man and woman is to be admired, but the person who doesn’t despise humble origins and extends a helping hand to many others from the same background is to be admired much more.

Why are we so sure that ethnic minorities cannot deserve a role in their own right? Is it not possible that Boris Johnson actually thinks his new cabinet is the one to get the job he wants done? Come to that, if we are so keen that everyone fits into their politically correct role in life, why are we not criticising Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Len McClusky et al for not being Tories, seeing as they are old white men? When did the world get so complicated with people actually just doing whatever they want without a thought for the confusion it causes???????

Paul Robson

2nd August 2019 at 9:15 am

I don’t think anyone does in the Tories anyway. Apart from Alok Sharma, whom I don’t know much about (this isn’t a criticism of him, I just don’t know much about him) none of the BAME cabinet or their positions is remotely surprising.

I think it comes up because there’s a regular discussion like “Boris is a far right racist nazi” …. “Well how come his cabinet has so many ethnic members then ?”.

I have doubts about Boris, certainly, but him being far right isn’t one of them.

Martin Bishop

28th July 2019 at 1:03 pm

“Boris Johnson has appointed the most ethnically diverse cabinet in history.”. So is this diversity coincidence, or is it not?

Paul Robson

2nd August 2019 at 9:12 am

It’s coincidence. If Patel and Javid are “window dressing”, why bother with Sunak, Sharma, Cleverly and the others. Most voters wouldn’t recognise them and they’re not in high profile jobs that mean they are on the TV every 2 minutes so their only “use” is in a visual cabinet pictures. Also, why give them two of the top three jobs after PM ?

They’re just trying to make their simplistic view of the world add up, and it doesn’t
