Anglo Saxons?
« on: Nov 08, 2019, 11:47:47 AM »
I see today that some professor wants to prevent the term 'Anglo-Saxon' being used to identify those who set up home in England in the dark ages.  It is elitist and whitist she claims and the term should be banned.  I have to say I am quite proud that my ancestors came here long before the Normans and find the proposition insulting.  Any thoughts?

A female numpty.

But at least the UK taxpayers aren't funding her.

She's probably just pіssed-off because she can't claim to be Anglo-Saxon.
