Does the commonwealth games whitewash British colonial atrocities and maintain white supremacy?




The Queen will formally open the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later, in front of a 40,000 crowd at Celtic Park.
Organisers said a global TV audience of up to a billion people was expected to watch the event from 21:00 BST.

I don’t know how the formerly oppressed and exploited nations under the colonial auspices of the UK can take part in such a self-abnegating event.  

They were, after all, colonised, exploited terribly, and millions of them died in ‘service’ of the British Queen and country.  Picture China having a ‘commonwealth’ games in a few decades time and the Tibetans sending a team to take part in it whilst the event is overseen by the CCP.  Does that not justify all that had happened to them?  Is that not a subconscious or conscious kow-tow to the CCP?  Or perhaps the Jews occupying Palestine could in the future, after they had successfully shuffled off and talked the Palestinians into accepting their places, hold similar games and have the Palestinians take part to celebrate peace and harmony? 


Same goes in the case of the Commonwealth.  It is an insult to the ancestors of all the non-European member states of the 'commonwealth' who were forced to grow cash crops for the British and die by the millions as a result; it is an insult to all the aboriginals of states like New Zealand, Australia, and Tasmania who were slaughtered because they were deemed to be inferior by the British, the Africans whom were enslaved by the millions, the Chinese, the Indians......   


And what is so ‘common’ about the ‘wealth’?  Britain ripped off trillions from all those states it economically and racistly colonised, took it and built their amenities and corporations that dominate the globe, and then formed a union with ‘whites only’ via the European Union and basically told those they exploited to bugger off.

For the British Queen to preside over this disgraceful event is to basically state that no remorse on the part of the British Monarchy or Country is necessary for their genocidal and grossly exploitative activities throughout the world that basically makes Hitler just a little evil in comparison.  This is no different from, if Hitler had won the war and held a Nazi commonwealth games a couple of decades later with all nations that had been under its thumb in attendance.  



It is nothing but a tribute to the Nazi colonial overlords and their racist exploitation of your people in the past.  By not doing so, you have successfully turned the graves of your ancestors into a playground for the entertainment of those who killed them.



All non-white nations taking part in these games, remember, this is not an event that brings humanity together in ‘fun and games’ but has, as its foundation, a view that the west were right in all that they did to you, and that their civilisation of gross mutual exploitation is alright, and that it is alright for their Queen to preside over the descendants of those ‘coolies’ who had enabled her to buy her shoes and diamonds with their forced labour.  It is basically a practice in global non-white self-disrespect, and respect for continuing western white supremacy.  They basically exploited and killed your ancestors, and now throw some games at you for you to play under the gaze of their overpriviliged Queen.

Nothing less that a single-fingered salute should be accorded the British Nazi Queen and country, and these shameful games for their gross self-satisfied arrogance.  If not, we'll just be pandering to further Eurocentrism which will not only lead to their ascendancy at great cost to others, but will not encourage us ability to 2nd guess their narrow vision of what humanity ought to be with our own cultural gems that might alleviate many an evil they take as natural.


postscript, i posted something similar to the first paragraph on the BBC website in the comments section beneath the aforelinked article.  I subsequently received the following email from the BBC,

"

Looks like the BBC are keen to maintain the illusion of unity through the 'Commonwealth' Games and dispel any notion that it may be an effort to whitewash British gross exploitation of the member states and how it maintains western political and cultural hegemony of the non-western world. 

Truth always offends those whom want to perpetuate an untruth.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
