A British Black Lives Matter activist known as the “Black Panther of Oxford” is calling for the implementation of extreme measures ostensibly as a means of settling old racial scores.
Sasha Johnson, leader of a new party that reportedly is open to all but will not allow whites to have leadership roles, is calling for “Holocaust-style” reparations for blacks as well as a “race offenders’ register” that would be used to bar people from employment based on accusations of having allegedly committed “micro-aggressions” in the workplace, the Daily Mail reported last week.
Johnson, 26, rose to prominence in the United Kingdom last summer as an organizer of BLM protests. During some of those events, she dressed in camouflage-style pants, wore a black beret and a stab-proof vest.
The Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP) leader said the race-offenders list would be “similar” to sex offender registries which the UK utilizes, among other things, to bar convicted pedophiles from certain professions including teaching.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Johnson explained that the reparations would be for blacks only because, she claimed, capitalism excludes and discriminates against them. She also called for “defunding” British police.
Johnson, who is a graduate of the prestigious Oxford Brookes University, also lambasted ethnic minority political leaders including Labour Party parliamentarians David Lammy and Diane Abbott because “as black people…they have tokenistic.”
In explaining the race registry, Johnson said it would be used to bar alleged racists from living near ethnic minorities.
“It’s similar to the sex offenders register,’ she told the Daily Mail. “If you were to be racially abusive to someone, [the register] would question whether someone is fit enough to hold a particular job where their bias could influence another person’s life.”
“A lot of racism happens at work and places of education in a micro-aggressive way,” she continued. “If you exhibit an element of bias at work, you should probably receive a warning first [before later being added to the register] so people know in future that you hold these views.”
She added: “If you live in a majority-colored neighborhood you shouldn’t reside there because you’re a risk to those people – just like if a sex offender lived next to a school he would be a risk to those children.”
The TTIP’s manifesto does not provide a list of race offenses that would land someone on the register. But it does say that anyone who is simply “accused” of being racist will be added, as well as people “charged” — but not convicted — of a race-related crime.
She also told the outlet that British taxpayers should fund “reparations” because of previous eras of slavery and because capitalism “holds us down.”
But due to constraints on the British government’s budget, Johnson said reparations wouldn’t come as direct payments but rather should be given out in the form of tax breaks.
“Reparations can take the form of tax-free periods, which would give time to build back up economic stability in black communities,” she said. “We have to remember that the Jewish community received reparations for the Holocaust, and no one speaks about forgetting the Holocaust.”
Johnson’s claims and demands were blasted by British writer Guy Birchall, who said she also vowed to make white men “our slaves.”
“Another day has dawned in Britain, and with it yet another ridiculous demand from the intersectional left,” he wrote in RT.com in September.
“So, what kind of revolution is this pound shop Che Guevara planning? Well, a communist one, obviously, but one with a healthy side of racial supremacy to go with the Marxism,” he added.
“The left can try and argue that racism is about systems and power structures all they like, but the rest of us know it is hatred of another race. Johnson plainly hates white people and the mere fact that she is black should not give her a free pass,” Birchall wrote.
The Daily Mail said that BLM as an organization has distanced itself from Johnson’s party and that the group doesn’t seek to form a political party of its own in the UK.
