UK’s Guardian newspaper apologizes for its links to SLAVERY
By Ramon Tomey // Mar 30, 2023

British newspaper the Guardian has issued an apology for its founder's role in the transatlantic slave trade, the latest entity to grovel to the woke mob.

First established in 1821 by journalist John Edward Taylor, the British paper now operates in other countries such as the U.S., Australia and New Zealand through the Guardian Media Group (GMG) – which is owned by the Scott Trust. However, a March 28 report titled "The Scott Trust Legacies of Enslavement" disclosed the dark secret of the Guardian's founder.

Guardian community correspondent Aamna Mohdin disclosed the contents of the said report. She noted that "Taylor and at least nine of his 11 backers had links to slavery, principally through the textile industry."

"Taylor had multiple links through partnerships in the cotton manufacturing firm Oakden and Taylor," Mohdin wrote. The Guardian founder also had links to the cotton merchant company Shuttleworth, Taylor and Co. which, according to her, "imported vast amounts of raw cotton produced by enslaved people in the Americas."

Following the report, the Scott Trust has pledged £10 million ($12.34 million) to communities linked to Taylor's activities. The money will support projects in the U.S. and Jamaica over the next decade after consultations with experts and community groups.

The Guardian is not the first Western institution to have apologized for supposed links to slavery. Harvard University, the Church of England and even the city of Edinburgh in Scotland have done the same.

"It is impossible to look out from this building across the city and not see how the landscape of the city was shaped from wealth generated from colonialism and slavery," wrote Robert Aldridge, lord provost for the Scottish capital. "The effects of colonialism and slavery are deeply embedded in the fabric of our city, in the buildings, in the institutions and even in the way that Edinburgh is laid out."

New York Times founders also linked to slavery

While the Guardian yielded to demands by the woke mob to apologize for slavery and pay "reparations," a paper closer to home – the New York Times – has yet to do it. In the same manner, the Ochs-Sulzberger family that owns the Times was found to have links to slavery. But instead of acknowledging those links, the publication has even dipped into historical revisionism through the so-called 1619 Project. (Related: Family of New York Times has ties to slavery and Confederacy, so the "cancel culture" mob has to tear it down, right?)

New York Post writer Michael Goodwin revealed the paper's links to slavery in a July 2020 op-ed. He pointed out that ever since Adolph Ochs took control of the Times in 1896, it followed a tradition of strictly separating news and opinion. Goodwin lamented that this is no longer the case nowadays.

Goodwin started by mentioning that Adolph's mother, Bertha Levy, "developed a fondness" for slavery, something her husband and Adolph's father Julius Ochs detested as a "villainous relic of barbarism." According to "The Trust," a 1999 biography of the Ochs-Sulzberger families, so deep was Bertha's fondness for slavery that she was determined to preserve "the South's peculiar institution."

This "fondness" for slavery seems to have been carried over in the modern era, with the Times under the leadership of Arthur Gregg Sulzberger – Adolph's great-great grandson – promoting The 1619 Project. The endeavor by journalist and academic Nikole Hannah-Jones argued that America's history began with the story of the first slave ship landing in Virginia in 1619, contrary to the traditional view of America's birth being the 1776 Declaration of Independence.

"The Times, as the chief media cheerleader for the chaos unfolding across the nation, routinely eviscerates America's heroes, its culture and – through the paper's 1619 Project – its founding," Goodwin pointed out.

"Yet the Times has never applied to its own history the standards it uses to demonize others. If it did, reporters there would learn that the Ochs-Sulzberger family that has owned and run the paper for 125 years has a 'complicated legacy' of its own."
