RE: Why are Eastern Europeans overlooked when it comes to discussing diversity or social issues in the UK?


Because they're white?

The wrong type of white apparently, so we get all the racist abuse. But, come the time people want to start talking about white guilt or white fragility, we're suddenly back in the club.

Which was a point I made to my employer's E&D officer when they started with the BLM stuff over summer, and to their credit a point they actually took on board.


It's a weird one with Eastern Europeans as they're lumped in with the oppressors despite being the victims of genocide within living memory and most never having had a settler-colonial nature beyond the borders of Europe.

Most of Eastern Europe is conveniently ignored by the woke crowd because white ethnic groups which have spent the last 1000 years being invaded, oppressed, murdered and generally suffering makes the idea of 'white privilege' quite a tricky concept to defend.

1000 years is a bit of an exaggeration - the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth did rather well from the 16th to the 18th Century.

That was a bit of an anomaly.

The Slavs have been oppressed for so long that they are the origin of the word "slave".


“Conveniently ignored by the woke”, yet racially abused by the gammons.

Simple as.

Yes this is were we are. As an White 36 years old Polish immigrant I have was told that I am the primary source of problems in Britain both the gammons for being Polish and the wokies for being white male. Hard to find your place in society when Right wing sees you as lesser citizen and left wing sees you as oppression of minorities.
