Prominent Black History Month website under fire for article labeling white people “genetically defective mutants”
By Cassie B. // Oct 05, 2021

A prominent Black History Month website in the UK that was caught espousing the notion that white people are “genetically defective mutants” has deleted the offensive article.


Although the site is not run officially by the British government, it is considered one of the most prominent websites to promote the event in the country and features content by British politicians who have pledged to support the event and “fight for racial justice.”

However, the website has a long history of publishing content that is racist against white people. The latest drama surrounds an article on the site about the work of American psychiatrist Frances Cress Welsing. She theorized that white people were actually what she termed “genetically defective mutants” who had been driven out of Africa by black natives there.

According to Welsing, once whites were expelled from the African continent, they turned to white supremacy and racism to protect their mutation. Moreover, she said their lack of melanin, a skin pigment, was responsible for their deviation from morality.

She added that being black was “an established basis for moral, or more specially, normal human behaviour.”

After The Telegraph contacted the site for a comment for its investigation of the racist piece, they pulled the article in question. It can still be viewed on the Internet Archive, however, where the introduction boasts that Welsing is “the woman who redefined the discussion around Racism.”

However, the site continues to host other racially questionable articles, such as a 2020 piece by the Reach Society stating that “Europeans have been encouraged to be morally monstrous to non-Europeans for so long, this behaviour has become second nature.” It’s scary to think that this is the viewpoint of a group through which black professionals mentor young black boys; they have also received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

Articles posted on the site often appear alongside recruitment ads funded by taxpayers for the British Armed Forces, police services and government agencies, along with ads for several universities in the UK.

Black History Month site is run by white ad exec

Surprisingly, the site is actually owned and run by a white advertising executive named Ian Thomas, who set it up as a private business. It is the top search result for the terms “Black History Month” in the UK and is linked to a magazine of the same name.

The month-long celebration is celebrating its 34th year in the UK. A former London councilor who was one of the people behind the launch of Black History Month back in the ‘80s, Linda Bellos, told The Telegraph that she found this ownership appalling and compared it to "enslavement.”

“The whole purpose of Black History Month is to empower us … I don’t want some white man, or even white woman, playing that role,” she said. “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.”

When contacted by The Telegraph, Thomas admitted that some of the racist content they highlighted was “dreadful” and took down articles promising to broadcast Welsing’s theories, but he left the article up saying that it was second nature for Europeans to be “morally monstruous to non-Europeans." He said that the website and magazine have an editor who decides what gets posted but conceded that he proofreads them as the managing editor.

It’s not really all that hard to believe that a white person could run a propaganda site like this. After all, anti-white racism seems to be growing more popular every day as critical race theory continues to reach its hateful hands across American schools, government bodies and businesses.
