The British Empire was one of the most violent institutions in modern
history - Jason Hickel

No, the British Empire didn't just "make mistakes", with a few massacres
here and there. They committed genocide on several continents, produced
famines that killed tens of millions of people, and led a human
trafficking cartel for 200 years. The violence was systematic.

The British Empire was one of the most violent institutions in modern
history, built on explicitly racist ideology and guilty of serial crimes
against humanity. It is astonishing that OBEs and other honours are
given, accepted and celebrated in its name.

We must push for opening up the discussion of the painful history of
colonialism and colonial racism as well as its continuous effects today—
Europe has never reckoned with the cultural effects of White Supremacy
and how it affects everything else today
