WALES A RACE?
This is an Important Subject as any Discrimination or Slander towards Wales from an Outside Race can then be Categorized as Racism through Legislation and Not just Local Inter-Racial Banter (although the Dictionary Definition of Banter is a 'Two Way Exchange', not just One Way). According to the Oxford English Dictionary Definition of 'Race' which is to say ‘A Group Descended from a Common Ancestor’, then as Wales descends from the Celtic Nations Ancestry, then the answer to the question ‘Is Wales a Race’ would be ‘Yes’. Under this criteria England may also be a Race separate to the rest of Britain. England may be defined as Anglo Saxon with a Common Ancestry of the 'Angles' and the 'Saxons' with their ancestry deriving from 'Northern Germany' and 'Scandinavia'. The name 'England' is the Anglo-Saxon (Old English) Translation for 'Land of the Angles' (Anglo's), Equally the Anglo-Saxon name for 'Wales' Translates as 'Foreigners'. To provide more detail when the Angles and the Saxons invaded Britain, and settled ‘Permanently’ approximately 1600 years ago (the 'Romans' predominantly occupied then left) creating a place called England with the borders of Wales and Scotland being further defined. The Indigenous people living in the land space now known as England at the time where either apparently, assimilated into the Anglo-Saxon culture or fled to Wales, Scotland or regions on the outskirts, such as Cornwall, to join the people already living in these areas. This appears to Account for the Modern Day term of Anglo Saxons and Celtic to Describe England and Wales.
Just to Further Clarify at this Point, the 'Oxford English Dictionary's' Definition of 'Racism' is stated as, 'the Belief that All Members of Each Race Possess Characteristics, Abilities or Qualities Specific to that Race, Especially as to Distinguish it as Inferior or Superior to Another Race or Races'. So when Relating this Definition to Wales, the Welsh have an Imposed 'Characteristic' of Bestiality 'Specific' to 'All' of them in the UK, therefore apparently Suggested as Inferior, English people do not have the same Bestiality Label in the UK (through their own London UK Media), therefore apparently Suggested (by themselves) as Superior from people who Supposedly engage in Subhuman Bestiality. This theory also applies to the other UK Celtic Nations, with the Scottish Labelled as Dour (Miserable), Sweaty Alcoholics and the Irish as Stupid, both Labels England do not have.Indeed, England as a Nation are Not Subject to Any Derogatory Labelling in the UK through their 'Own' London Based British Media?! So to Further Confirm, according to the 'Oxford English Dictionary's' Definition of the term 'Race' it is stated as, ‘A Group Descended from a Common Ancestry’, the Oxford Dictionary Definition of 'Ancestry', 'a person's ancestors or ethnic decent' or 'something that a later version has evolved from'. As Wales Descends from their 'Celtic Nation's Ethnic Ancestry' (Hence their Ongoing Celtic Description & Identity of Wales to this Day) then the Answer to the Question ‘Is Wales a Distinct Race of people within the British Isles’ would be ‘Yes’. Equally, the English Descend from their own unique 'Anglo-Saxon Ethnic Ancestry' (Hence their Ongoing Anglo-Saxon Description & Identity of England to this Day) also within the British Isles, making England and Wales Uniquely separate Races within Britain (See 'What is Britishness?' in heading above). Which means that any Constant Crude Derogatory Slander from England (through all Avenues) towards Wales (the Powerful UK Majority Demeaning a Less Powerful UK Minority) is Legally Racism (towards the 'Other') and Not just Inter Racial Internal 'Banter' between one Homogeneous Group.
The Oxford English Dictionary also Defines as One of the Categories for being a Race the term ‘Ethnic Group’. If we define the word ‘Ethnic’ through the Oxford English Dictionary then it is to say ‘Relating to a Group of People having a Common Nationality or Cultural Tradition’. The term ‘Nation’ has a Dictionary Definition Defined as, ‘A large body of People United by a Common Descent, Culture or Language, Inhabiting a Particular State or Territory’, this appears to describe Wales, as a Nation. So in essence as well as being a 'Race' Wales also appear to be an 'Ethnic Minority', Ethnic because of the terms Described and Minority as they are Smaller in Population and Land than their Neighbours, England (the Majority). In Conclusion when Defining whether Wales is a ‘Race’ the Evidence appears to suggest that 'Yes' this is the case, and when Clarifying if Wales is an ‘Ethnic Minority’ then 'Yes' again appears to be the answer.
Just to further add detail to this subject, the term 'Xenophobia' is Commonly used in the UK as perhaps a more 'Politically Correct' High Brow way of Describing a Racist position, essentially just Playing with Words to Avoid the Direct Use of the term Racist, often used by Racists, as the word Racist comes with Powerful Connotations, Legal Redress and is Immediately Recognisable (the word Xenophobia appears to be Designed as a Convoluted way to Baffle people as to it's Direct Meaning, using that Age Old well known Tactic of 'Bulls**t Baffles Brains'?). However, when discussing xenophobia, xenophobia’s Oxford English Dictionary Definition states that it is an ‘Intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other Countries’, which essentially describes Racism. However, as Wales appears to Directly fit the Dictionary Categorization of a Race and Racism, then Racism appears to be the Only Direct Non-Convoluted Literal Description of Slander towards Wales from people and Nations outside of their Ancestry.
WELSH RACISM PRECEDENT SET?
Recently in April 2013 a person from Bolton, England was Legally Prosecuted for using the term ‘Sheep Shagger’ to a group of Welsh people, as well as apparently the Welsh police officer who arrested him, and was ultimately fined £150 for a ‘Racially Aggravated Crime’, which for the First time Legally & Officially Identifies Welsh people as a unique Race (Celtic) of people from the English (Anglo-Saxon). This Crime apparently took place in the village of Gronant in North Wales. This event appears Historic as it states by Law (Setting a Precedent) that Wales is indeed a Race therefore any Slander against Welsh people is then 'Legally Racism'. The accused said that he was calling these people individually ‘Sheep shaggers’ as they were allegedly from the country side, and not specifically as they were Welsh. This account was not accepted by the judge as the wider British society (Usually through the 'British Media' mainly based in London) appears all too aware that a Slander Term for the Welsh, used possibly predominantly by English people as a term of Slander and Abuse is the term, ‘Sheep shagger’. Similar to the slander terms apparently widely understood by British society for an Irish person, which is said to be ‘stupid’ and the Scottish which is apparently ‘sweaty losers’.
It appears a Pertinent point that the person Prosecuted for this 'Racial Aggravated Crime' was an English person, Pertinent because England could be Identified as of Anglo-Saxon ancestry which makes them a Different Race to Wales who may be Categorized as a Race through their Celtic ancestry (Oxford English Dictionary Definition of Race). To Clarify then if a Scottish person called a Welsh person a ‘Sheep Shagger’ then this could be deemed as interracial banter as the Scots are also of Celtic ancestry (although the Scots are not known to be a slanderous people). However, as England may be Identified as a Different Race through their Anglo-Saxon Heritage, then this could be deemed as Racism, from one Race to another. I wonder however if this court procedure was undertaken in England, with the possible extra influence of the English Establishment and general mindset, if the same verdict would have been the conclusion?
Welsh Racism may Need to be Openly Addressed in the European Courts or UN Courts Implementing the 'UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights', which Declares its Faith in the 'Dignity and Worth of All Human People', and using other Legislation such as the 'Human Rights Act 1998' Article 14, which states that, 'The Human Rights Act Requires that there is No Discrimination on any Grounds and this Includes- (i) Race, (ii) Language, (iii) National or Social Origin, and (iv) Association with a National Minority. (The Powerful over the Powerless). However, the Human Rights Act 1998 is an Act (along with other EU Rights as a result of Brexit) that the English Establishment may seek to Replace with a 'British Bill of Rights' (or Other Title) to possibly provide them even more UK Control by 'Minimising' their Legal Accountability, along with apparently Systemically Limiting Access to a State Funded Lawyer through Legal Aid? Although, it does appear that the British (London Directed) Legal System may have Limited Motivation to Pursue Legal Actions to Challenge 'UK Celtic Minority Nation Discrimination' (Even Though Racism & Discrimination is Directly Against the Law in the UK!?...), as the Litigation may be Perceived as an Action Against Themselves (or One of Their Own)? Although, if they do then the Race Relations Act 1976 (Racial and Religious Hate Act 2006 & Public Order Act 1986) or the Equality Act 2010 (regards Race), could be enacted within Britain, or even a mixture of both. However, to pursue an action against an apparent London English Establishment British 'Media' Celebrity figure and/or 'British Mainstream Media' company (& even sometimes a general member of the public) through the supposed English Establishment Law Courts with their main Power Hub in London may result in a bias outcome? As a consequence prosecuting possible English Establishment Racists and Liars may have to be pursued through the European or International Courts, which may be less likely to be Influenced by any possible London English Establishment connections?...
The UK Equality Act Does Not Outlaw Discrimination on Grounds of Nationality or Class?
In addition, It appears Pertinent to Note at this Point that the Newest Piece of Equality Legislation in the UK (the Equality Act 2010) that Combines previous UK Discrimination Legislation does Not Include 'Discrimination' Based on the Grounds of UK 'Nationality' (although since 2014 the Celtic Nations have since been Identified as a Separate 'Race' to Anglo-Saxon England) or 'Class' (a Person's Social or Economic Status). The Nine Worthy areas Protected are Race, Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Civil Marriage and Maternity Pregnancy, however Not 'Nationality or Class'. Pertinent as these Omissions of 'Protection from Discrimination' Based on 'Nationality or Class' (the English Establishment Authorities in London Make UK Law) seem to Demonstrate an 'Intent' to Continue to Allow Historical UK 'Discrimination and Bias' Based on a Person's Nationality or Class Hierarchy. Particularly Important in a Country 'Fully' Made Up of 'Four Individually Recognised Nations,', and three of which are Poorer than the Majority Nation, meaning there are unlikely to be many Celtic Nations people (Random Tokens Not included) within the Upper Classes?... Although 'Nationality' is Covered in the European Human Rights Act 1998.
The 'Racially Aggravated' element of the precedent outlined above derives from the following piece of Law in the UK:
Crime & Disorder Act 1998
Racially & Religious Aggravated Offence Sections 28 to 32 :
This is to say it is an 'Arrestable Offence' with a possible prison term attached when a persons Race or Religion is used to offend in the course of another incident or may be the reason for that incident.
Racially & Religious Harassment, Alarm or Distress Section 31 (1) (c):
This is to say it is an 'Arrestable Offence' with a possible prison term attached when a persons is being harassed as a result of their Race or Religion.
Oxford English Dictionary Definition of 'Harassment': ' TORMENT BY SUBJECTING TO 'CONSTANT' INTERFERENCE OR INTIMIDATION'.
Racism as an 'ARRESTABLE OFFENCE' was first established in the Race Relations Act 1976. This was later built on by the, Public Order Act 1986 and the Criminal Justice & Public Order Act 1994 ( other amendments have since be made but posses the same basic principles).
These Acts state that it is an arrestable offence to Incite Racial Hatred by:
* Deliberately Provoking Racial Hatred of a Racial Group.
* To Incite Inflammatory RUMOURS about an Individual or an Ethic Group, for the purposes of spreading Racial Discontent.
FOOTBALL (OFFENCES) ACT 1991 Section 3 (England & Wales only)
1) It is an Offence to engage or take part in Chanting of an Indecent or Racialist nature at a designated Football Match
(2) For this purpose —
(a) “chanting” means the repeated uttering of any words or sounds (whether alone or in concert with one more others); and
(b) “of a racialist nature” means consisting of or including matter which is threatening, abusive or insulting to a person by reason of his colour, race, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins.
The UK Equality Act 2010
The Nine Characteristics of the Equality Act 2010-
Race, Disability, Age, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Rights, Pregnancy and Maternity, Religion and Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation.
Notice the Omission of UK Discrimination Based on Nationality and Class, Although European does Outlaw Discrimination on Grounds of Nationality
The Human Rights Act 1998 article 14, goes onto to state that:
The Human rights requires that there be no Discrimination on any Grounds and this includes-
* National or Social origin.
* Association with a National Minority.
However, the Human Rights Act 1998 is more than likely to be changed in the future to the British Bill of Rights (or some other variation) outside of European input, controlled from the UK (London). Essentially, apparently providing even more power and less accountability to Westminster England?
CHARTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS (1945) ARTICLE 73 & 74 ON
73) a) to Ensure, with due Respect for the Culture of the Peoples Concerned, their Political, Economic, Social, and Educational 'Advancement', their Just Treatment, and their Protection against Abuses;
74) “Members of the United Nations also agree that their policy in respect of the territories to which this Chapter applies, no less than in respect of their metropolitan areas, must be based on the general principle of 'Good-Neighbourliness', due account being taken of the interests and well-being of the rest of the world, in social, economic, and commercial matters.”
Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948
As stated under 'Declaration on Race and Racial Prejudice 1978', Article 3, (UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948). 'Any distinction, 'exclusion', 'restriction' or 'preference' based on race, colour, 'ethnic' or 'national' origin or religious intolerance motivated by racist considerations, which destroys or compromises the sovereign equality of States and the right of peoples to 'self-determination', or which limits in an 'arbitrary' or 'discriminatory' manner the right of every human being and group to 'full development' is incompatible with the requirements of an international order which is just and guarantees respect for human rights; the right to 'full development' implies equal access to the means of 'personal and collective advancement and fulfilment' in a climate of 'respect' for the values of civilizations and cultures, both national and world-wide'.
