We Britons are a culture, not a costume. It is not right for the history of a particular people to be misrepresented, and for multiracialism to be back-projected into a past where it was not, in fact, a feature. Figures like Friar Tuck and Queen Guinevere belong to British and ethnic European history and mythology. It is also wrong for the BBC to cast black actors as medieval bishops and knights in Shakespearean dramas (i.e. The Hollow Crown' which are otherwise relatively authentic. Can we not even claim our past and our cultural icons as our own? Must these too be up for grabs? This is a trend that seems to be becoming more prevalent, and there is a need to protest against it. The design behind all this is surely to dull in peoples minds consciousness of the fact that Albion was a white land.
One is reminded of the maxim of the totalitarian party in George Orwell's dystopian novel 'Nineteen Eighty Four': Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.'
