David Starkey says obnoxious things

August 13, 2011

David Starkey said horrible, racist things on Newsnight last night. Doubtless you know this. This is a great thing I have read about it. And there are links to two other great things at the end, which you should read if you would rather read the whole internet and be filled with righteous outrage than write your dissertation.

Back in 2009, David Starkey also said horrible, sexist things about women in history. Among other things, he asserted:

“If you are to do a proper history of Europe before the last five minutes, it is a history of white males because they were the power players, and to pretend anything else is to falsify.”

Telling.
