In 2012 Diane Abbott was having a twitter conversation with Bim Adewunmi about 19th century colonialism triggered by the outcome of Stephen Lawrence case  earlier that week. In the twitter conversation she stated that ‘white people love playing “divide & rule”‘. In context it was a generally accepted notion about our history but of course those who troll and persecute her do not do context. They have their own agenda.

They make lazy, racist tropes of their own and then pander to the racist crowd for their support. What about all the racism coming from the government? Not a word. But for Diane Abbott, who happens to disagree with much of what they say, it is an entirely different case.

Cannot think why. Can you?
