can white people teach black history

As much as I loathe the British national party, and find their ‘politics’ a heady mix of xenophobia, testosterone and ignorance, I must say that I’m appalled that a list of bnp supporters has been published and that such a fuss is being made over it. While I may find the fact that bnp supporters are teaching kids unpalatable, one’s political stance must be irrelevant when applying for a job. The same goes for age, ethnicity, gender, or whatever. If we go down this route, where will it end? Shall we say that if you’re religious you can’t teach science? Hell no. if you are white you can’t teach about slavery? How absurd. Politics should be left at the workplace door. Surely as soon as we make any such move we become as bigoted as we accuse them of being.
