James Sunderland discusses white privilege
Tory MP James Sunderland praised Minister for Women and Equalities Liz Truss for her work against politically correct culture. While speaking in the House of Commons, Mr Sunderland asked for assurances that the Government would not bow to those arguing that “white people should feel guilty for being white.” Ms Truss robustly highlighted the ample opportunities for anyone in Britain regardless of their race, religion, sexuality or anything else.
She added that the Government was determined to focus on positively empowering its citizens rather than enabling “positive discrimination.”
