OK, this one is a new bit in politics in any western country as far as I know:

Equality watchdogs are looking at whether Labour broke the law by offering discounted rally tickets to black and minority ethnic members.

So, yes, the British Labour Party, currently under the control of communist Jeremy Corbyn on a wave of recent memberships, has decided to charge white people more to attend a rally than non-white people.

Reminds me of John Stossel's "Affirmative Action Bake Sale."

Is that the one where people get charged the percentage of a dollar for a cupcake that a person of their ethnic group earns as a percentage of what a white person earns?  And then they find out that East Asians and Ashkenazi Jews earn more than white people in general and the whole thing falls apart?

Yeah, black people were getting pissed off at how racist it was until a couple of the smarter ones figured out that that was exactly the point!
