Who is dating lily allen date side Brøndby
'I think we need to organise a concert to buy Lily Allen a £4million property this Christmas. Last year the 32-year-old came under fire when she apologised to Calais migrants on Britain's behalf – before insisting she would '100 per cent' take in a refugee herself.She became emotional while meeting with a 13-year-old boy from Afghanistan who had risked his life trying to board UK-bound lorries.Sometimes, in some conversations, it is still necessary to say: “Yes, white men can be rapists too (and not just in cases where the women basically made them do it by wearing short skirts or drinking alcohol or venturing outside the house at night.)” It’s no secret that the same people who try to justify their racism against refugees and immigrants with the “Muslim men raping our white women” narrative are often happy to turn a blind eye when the perpetrators of sexual assault are white men.I haven’t met many self-confessed supporters of Tommy Robinson at feminist events, nor have I seen many EDL sympathisers getting involved with efforts to combat rape culture in western society.
Did she mean that all white men are potential rapists, whereas men of other races aren’t?
Perhaps I’m missing their quiet efforts to further the cause of gender equality behind the scenes, but somehow I doubt it.
The last time Lily Allen prompted a Twitter storm and a media outcry across the tabloids was when she “apologised on behalf of England” to a young refugee in the Calais Jungle, tearfully telling a 13-year-old boy from Afghanistan that she felt guilty because “the English in particular have put you in danger”.
She’d spoken about the plight of refugees in the camp before, but there had been little reaction.
Refuse to show English national pride, however, and suddenly everyone wants to point out the supposed seed of egotism in your compassion. It would be absurd, of course, to say that white men are any better or worse than any of us.
