The Hierarchy Of Victimhood- A Cut Out & Keep Guide.

Guardian race nut Joseph Harker prattles on about racist the British are (because we are more welcoming to immigrants from Canada than from Derkastan). It's mostly nonsense of course, but rather helpfully he assembles the ethnic groups in a hierarchy of victimhood, which will be useful to refer to next time victimhood poker is being played.

His list is pretty good, it's roughly the same order of preference* I would have given those various groups.

And why?

Because the higher up the list you are, the more likely you are to 'fit in' with society in the UK; less likely to turn to crime or live on benefits.

* I personally would have Canadians and ANZs above US Americans, who are on par with white South Africans, but hey.

Ooh, no - white South Africans come top for me!

What can I say, I looooovee the accent :)

Mark Wadsworth said...

JM, true, the white South Africans I have met have all been stirling folk, I just worry that they themselves qualify for victim status because of the ANC kicking them out of their own country, so I marked them down.

"I personally would have Canadians and ANZs above US Americans"

That would be more obvious, I suspect he put Americans top because of their status as world oppressors and source of all evil (in Guardian land).
