The Racial Transformation of Britain
American Renaissance
How Enoch Powell’s warn-ings went unheeded.
by Richard Lynn
D
uring the closing decades of thetwentieth century the large-scaleimmigration of Hispanics,Asians and blacks made the UnitedStates an increasingly multiracial soci-ety. However, this transformation has nottaken place only in America. Thisstrange process of self-effacement hasalso taken place in Canada, Australia andthroughout Western Europe–particularlyin Britain.There have been small numbers of non-whites in Britain for hundreds of years. Blacks first appeared towards theend of the sixteenth century followingthe beginning of the slave trade in 1563.English slavers picked up blacks fromWest Africa for transport to the Carib-bean and America, and brought a fewback to England. They acquired such abad reputation that in 1596 Queen Eliza-beth wrote to mayors and sheriffsthroughout the country saying therewere “already too many here” andshould all be expelled. The Queen mustnot have been completely obeyed be-cause five years later she issued anotherproclamation requiring that the “saidkind of people should be with all speedavoided and discharged out of this HerMajesty’s dominions.”Despite such decrees, a few blackscontinued to be brought to England towork as servants. Several hundred run-away American slaves came to Englandafter the end of the American Revolu-tionary War. According to Peter Fryer’s
Staying Power: a History of Blacks in Britain
, many became beggars on thestreets of London. The government con-sidered them a serious social problem,and set up a plan to resettle them in Si-erra Leone. Three hundred fifty wereactually sent there. By the beginning of the twentieth century there were veryfew blacks in Britain and the only sig-nificant black communities were in theports of Liverpool and Cardiff. In 1919there were serious race riots in both cit-ies.It was after the end of the SecondWorld War that large numbers of blacksand other non-Europeans settled in Brit-ain. The process began with the BritishNationality Act passed in 1948 by Clem-ent Atlee’s Labour Government. This actconferred British citizenship on thepeople of the British colonies and gavethem the right to enter, settle, and work in Britain. At that time the colonies con-sisted of India, Hong Kong, Malaysia,much of Africa, most of the Caribbean,and a number of other smaller territo-ries. The act gave similar rights of entryand residence to citizens of the BritishCommonwealth, consisting of Canada,Australia, New Zealand and South Af-rica. Thus the act covered many hun-dreds of millions of people, most of whom were not white.Why did Parliament pass such a law?British historian Andrew Roberts wrotein his 1994 book,
 Eminent Churchil-lians
, that it probably reflected gratitudetowards the Commonwealth nations thathad supported Britain during the waragainst Germany. He writes that the lawwas “drawn up at the height of enthusi-asm for the concept of ‘Commonwealth’. . . all political parties embraced the‘Commonwealth ideal’ with a fervourand naiveté which may seem absurd to-day.” He also points out that the act wasa kind of afterthought that actually re-flected an “absence of policy.”Just as was the case with the water-shed 1965 immigration reform in theUnited States, hardly anyone pointed outwhat might happen if huge numbers of non-European people actually came.One of the few to raise this question wasa young Conservative Member of Par-liament named Enoch Powell, but gov-ernment spokesmen and senior membersof his own party assured him that veryfew would actually arrive in Britain.These reassurances were ill-founded.In May, 1948, within a few weeks of theact becoming law, the first boatload of blacks arrived from Jamaica. They wereto be followed by many more from theCaribbean, the Indian subcontinent, andby lesser numbers from Hong Kong,Malaysia and Singapore. In the 1950squite large numbers of blacks and Indi-ans were entering and settling in Brit-ain, and towards the end of the decade itwas becoming apparent that while In-dian immigrants adapted to life in Brit-ain, blacks did not. One problem wasthat many whites didn’t like them. It wascommon, for example, for advertise-

In 1596 Queen Elizabethissued a decree expel-ling all blacks fromher kingdom.

 Letters from Readers
Sir – “I can think of no strategy thatwould make our movement appealing to[liberals],” reads a sentence in a letter inthe June AR, expressing a commonly-held view among the racially conscious.What we need to understand is that lib-erals are not ignorant; they are delu-sional. The difference is that ignorantpeople can be educated, while delusionalpeople must be treated.I once worked as an aide in the psy-chiatric unit of a V.A. hospital. One of our patients believed there were littleinvisible machines on his body, whichran the universe. He told me that on cer-tain evenings, after the other patientswere asleep, he would fly to Venus todeliver scientific lectures. These weredelusions, rigidly-held beliefs that per-sisted despite compelling evidence to thecontrary. If you were to show that manirrefutable evidence that he couldn’t fly,for example, he wouldn’t thank you forsetting him straight. He would ignoreyou, and if you persisted he might be-come hostile or even violent. That is thedisease: not the belief he can fly, but thefierce need to protect his error againstthe intrusion of reason.Liberals are the same way. It’s notenough to prove them wrong. Shownirrefutable evidence (of which there isplenty) that blacks and whites are notequivalent and interchangeable, liberalsignore the evidence and attack those whopresent it. It is impossible to have anhonest discussion about immigrationwithout first having an honest discus-sion about race. It is impossible to dis-cuss education or crime or guns or wel-fare without discussing race, and liber-als are pathologically incapable of do-ing so.What to do? First, we recognize thatthe effort will be a long one. Unfortu-nately, we don’t have much time, immi-gration and non-white birth-rates beingwhat they are. Nevertheless we mustrecognize we are dealing not with igno-rance but illness. Second, we push foras much open discussion about race aspossible. Over time, such discussion cancure even liberalism.Arthur White, Ga.Sir – As a subscriber to

I was pleasantly surprisedon the evening of May 18th to hear JaredTaylor’s interview on KSTP AM in St.Paul. I can’t tell you how encouragingit was to hear your common-sense ap-proach broadcast over the air. It was abreath of fresh air, presented in a mat-ter-of-fact way, and most effective.R.C. Hanning, Minnetonka, Minn.Sir – I have noticed several referencesin AR to the high IQs and low crime ratesof Asians. I would point out that mostof the Asian populations referred to seemto be North Asian–Chinese, Japanese,Korean–rather than South Asian. Thereseems to be no evidence of particularlyhigh IQ scores in the Philippines, Ma-laysia or Indonesia.As for economic success, I am notfamiliar with the situation in Americabut figures based on the 1996 Austra-lian census showed that in Sydney mostmigrants from China, Hong Kong andIndo-China were earning below the me-dian income, though those from Indiaand Malaysia tended to better. I wouldnote also that when relatively small num-bers of people migrate to Western coun-tries they tend to be superior in intelli-gence than those left behind. In thiscountry, apart from the Vietnamese,Asians are not noted for high crime rates.However, international comparisonsseem to indicate a lower homicide ratein Ireland and some other Europeancountries compared to most Asian coun-tries. If a recall correctly, the homiciderate in the Philippines is considerablyhigher than in the United States. I sus-pect that as America’s Asian minoritygrows it will be less successful economi-cally and its crime rates will rise.R. Hughes, Strathfield, AustraliaSir – When I received the June issueof AR I read the article by Jared Taylortwice because its tone suggested thatElian Gonzalez should be sent back toFidel Castro. This is the first time I havefound myself in disagreement with Mr.Taylor, whom I respect and admire. Thistime he has allied himself with somestrange bed-fellows. Any time you findyourself agreeing with William Clinton,Janet Reno, Mr. Castro, 92 percent of blacks, and the INS you may want toreconsider your views.I despise Communism so my positionmay be a little subjective, but as soon asMr. Castro decided to make a politicalissue out of Elian I would never haveallowed the boy to be sent back to Cuba.He will be paraded through the streetsof Havana and used as a poster-boy forthe Communist agenda. Never do any-thing to further the Communist agenda.

.Sir – In his article “Blacking the Pro-fession” in the July issue, William J.Blasi writes he could find no referenceto alleged black heart surgeon DanielHale Williams. In his 1980 booklet

Henry E. Garrettwrites, “A Negro physician, Daniel Wil-liams, has been called the first success-ful heart surgeon. Dr. Williams sewedup a stab wound in an artery a fractionof an inch from the heart. This was in1893. Through some miracle the patientlived. But Williams’ feat did not advancethe state of the surgical art and contrib-uted nothing to the development of theelaborately planned heart operation of the present day.”Dr. Garrett gives as his source: R.B.Kuttner,

ments for rental property to specify “NoBlacks,” though this was later made il-legal. Other events that called attentionto blacks were the 1958 race riots inwhich blacks looted and burned shopsin the Notting Hill district of London andin the city of Nottingham.Following the riots a few Conserva-tive politicians began to voice disquietabout the presence and continuing im-migration of blacks. One of these wasLord Salisbury, who said he was “ex-tremely apprehensive of the economicand social results, for Europeans and forAfricans alike, that were likely to resultfrom an unrestricted immigration of menand women of the African race into Brit-ain.” The
Times
of September 3, 1958,reported that whites resented blacks be-cause “they are alleged to do no work and to collect a rich sum from the assis-tance board” and “they are charged withall kinds of misbehavior, especiallysexual.” Later research was to show thatthese perceptions had an element of truthin so far as blacks were found to haveabout twice the level of unemploymentof whites, about six times the level of crime, and high rates of illegitimacy.By 1961 it was estimated that therewere in Britain approximately 210,000blacks from the Caribbean and 122,000Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshisfrom the Indian sub-Continent. The Con-servative government of the day, led byHarold Macmillan, decided it was timefor immigration to stop. In 1962 it passedthe Commonwealth Immigration Act,which removed the right of entry to Brit-ain of citizens of the Colonies and Com-monwealth, except for parents, spousesand children of those already in thecountry, and for those hired for jobs noBritish citizen was capable of doing. In1963 the government issued 30,130 suchemployment vouchers but this numbergradually declined to 2,290 in 1972.
Rivers of Blood
The Labour Party bitterly opposed the1962 act, but it realized that the major-ity of the population did not like immi-gration, and did not repeal the act whenit came to power in 1964. Nevertheless,though the intention of the 1962 act wasto end immigration into Britain, it soonbecame apparent that it was continuingat a great rate. In 1968 Enoch Powelldecided it was time to raise the issuepublicly. By then a leading Conserva-tive politician, Powell had been a bril-liant classical student at Cambridge,became professor of Greek at the Uni-versity of Sydney at the age of 26, andhad served in the Second World Warwith distinction. He had been a cabinetmember in Harold Macmillan’s Conser-vative government and was a memberof the Conservative shadow cabinetwhen the Conservatives went into op-position in 1964.His much-publicized address has be-come known as the “rivers of blood”speech because of what Powell saidabout the tensions continued immigra-tion would bring: “As I look ahead, Iam filled with foreboding. Like the Ro-man, I seem to see the river Tiber foam-ing with much blood.” The classical al-lusion was to a passage in Vergil’s
 Aeneid 
in which Aeneas hears a proph-ecy that when he returns to Italy therewill be war and “foaming blood” in theTiber. It was to prove a more arrestingphrase than Powell seems to have real-ized, and he said later he wished he hadgiven the quotation in Latin.In the speech, Powell cited the socialproblems caused by blacks in the UnitedStates as a warning of what would hap-pen in Britain: “The tragic and intrac-table phenomenon which we watch inhorror on the other side of the Atlantic,which is there interwoven with the his-tory and existence of the States itself, iscoming to us here by our own volitionand our own neglect.” He continued byquoting an aphorism from classicalGreece: “Those whom the gods seek todestroy, they first make mad,” and con-tinued, “We must be mad, literally mad,as a nation to be permitting the annualinflow of some 50,000 dependents, whoare for the most part the material of thefuture growth of the immigrant-de-scended population. It is like watchinga nation busily engaged in building upits own funeral pyre.” He called for re-patriation as the only solution to theproblem.An opinion poll carried out shortlyafter the speech showed that 74 percentof the population agreed with Powell,but the government ignored their wishesand immigration continued. The 1991census found that the number of blackshad risen more than fourfold since 1961to approximately 900,000 (1.6 percentof the population), while South Asians(Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis)had increased more than tenfold to ap-proximately 1,500,000 (2.7 percent of the population). There were also ap-proximately 650,000 Chinese (1.25 per-cent of the population), but these figureswere all underestimates because manyimmigrants, particularly illegals, do notfill in census forms and go uncounted.Post-war immigrants have alwayscongregated in the major cities. A sur-vey carried out in 1999 found that ap-proximately one third of school childrenin London do not speak English at home.Probably about another third are En-glish-speaking blacks and Asians. Whenthese non-whites become adults theywill outnumber whites, just as they doin most big cities in the United States.Why did the 1962 act fail to halt therise in the number of non-whites? First,immigrants are mainly young adults whosoon have children, and they tend to havemore children than whites. Many enterillegally or as legal tourists who nevergo home. Some enter as spouses, andmany enter as a result of arranged mar-riages. There have been press reports of
