Is Gardening Racist? This Professor Says Yes

According to a professor backed by the National Trust, gardening is rooted in “racial injustice.”

Corinne Fowler, professor of post-colonial literature at the University of Leicester, wrote a book called Green Unpleasant Land in which she said that the British “countryside is a terrain of inequalities.”

The professor also said that “it should not surprise us that it should be seen as a place of particular hostility to those who are seen as not to belong, principally black and Asian Britons.”

Fowler argues that British estates were partly financed from colonialism and slavery, so “knowledge about gardens and plants, in particular botany, has had deep colonial resonances.”

She said, “The scientific categorisation of plants has at times engaged in the same hierarchies of ‘race’ that justified empire and slave and slavery.” She continued, “inevitably, then, gardens are matters of class and privilege.”

Fowler also said that “Rural Britain” is “rarely peaceful.”

“The elderliness of the maids is incongruous with the many itinerant female East Europeans who, before Brexit, picked the fruit and vegetables that grace our tables,” she wrote in her book.

In her book, Fowler also admitted that she is guilty of benefitting from the British Empire. Her own family had connections to slavery on sugar plantations in the Caribbean.

“I make no claim to neutrality… Our relatives either profited from empire, or were impoverished by it,” she wrote.

In response to Fowler’s arguments, former Brexit Party MEP Martin Daubney wrote in a tweet, “Will this crap ever end? Or is this now our destiny: to forever bang our heads on tables at the sheer stupidity of humanity?”

London Assembly Member Peter Whittle also tweeted, “Like our other cultural institutions, the National Trust is now infested with the Britain-haters.”

  1. These people have lost their little minds. According to them everything we do is racist. I’m sick of them. I’m not apologizing because I’m white.

  2. +What a terrible waste of money to have sent this idiot through years of schooling only to turn out to be a blithering idiot.

  3. They are getting crazy;, the more I hear of these racist professor, the sicker one gets. These race hustler’s, if they spent more time among the blacks working to stop them from shooting each other, the world would be a better place. Too look back in history for the purpose of establishing victimization is silly and short sighted. Stop with the history lessons, look forward and try to make the world a better. Gardening is an opportunity to make world a better place…

  4. Apparently everything’s racist. But we also know a PhD doesn’t mean you’re smart. It just means Piled Higher and Deeper. Gardening is now racist, what a load of crap.

  5. Soon going to the bathroom to pee will be racist. What and idiot and to think some even consider this stupidity. When people say your racist it means that person a the biggest one of all. Look at Pelosi and all her merry men. Racist bunch of pigs

  6. This is the dumbest thing I’ve heard.
    The guy I follow on Instagram @garden_marcus is who I learn all of my stuff from (a lot of things anyway). He’s black. He does it because he loves it. All races find some sort of peace in gardening. It’s not freaking Racist.

  7. Poor folk plant vegetables, rich folk plant roses. Me, I garden to avoid sky high produce prices on organic foods, and the pesticides that are everywhere. Soon, my garden may be the only fresh source available, I anticipate food riots under B and H…

  8. Who cares what this professor thinks. If I want to garden, whether by trying to make our house more attractive or growing food, then I will. And I will not feel any guilt from doing so.

  9. Just who the hell is this “doombrain” professor. Where does racism come when a person is tending their own garden either by mowing and weeding the lawns or growing their own fruit and vegetables. Garden are by no means matters of class and privilege, they are a matter of choice by the individual. I worked my own garden when I lived in the United Kingdom. Now I live in the USA I still love to tend my own garden, when back pain allows it of course. If the National Trust back this idiot, then what about all the gardens that they look after?

  10. There are Vast Estates in England, and they were created by Kings and Queens in the past, in short: Feudalism. And one of the main things Thomas More deplored in Henry VII’s and VIII’s time was that many villages were laid bare for sheep and their good wool that was selling well to the rich cities in Holland.
    But: That was before any slaves were bought from the Black Chiefs in West Africa and sold elsewhere.
    Thus, “Prof.” Fowler fouls the wrong pasture. She may feel guilty through family association with slavery, as the new Vice President of the USA (whose browner taint has more of an Asian origin – and there are Aryans in India, too). Such far back connections, however, would not have ha any influence or meaning, had they not been brought out as weapons by the an African-American grouping, led by their “white-supremacist” Antifa Dem Party agents, a group that could not be in stronger contrast to the original ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement as this REAL BLM was founded in Ferguson AGAINST OBAMA AND BIDEN!
    So, we see that many things and creeds are, these days, not really what they claim – nor can they, truthfully, give us any facts and judgment of history. This must also be the reason why “Culture must be cancelled” and “History Destroyed”. “Prof” Fowler does her part of this “NewSpeak” and “MiniTruth”.

  11. Never fear—you will be working on THEIR gardens and fields soon. The Neo-Confederates want their plantations back. They were the original Slavemasterminds—after the Civil War, they became the SLUMLORD MASTERMINDS. They take over cities and turn them into SLUMS of the disunited, discouraged and illiterate. THAT IS THEIR PLAN FOR THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. Remember this about the Neo-Confederacy / Aristocrats / Fascists / Marxists (they all have the same objectives) everything they do is CONSCIOUSLY INVENTED (not just a false belief)— to eliminate and break up all other groups with an INTERNAL self-identity—whether they be Catholics or Boy Scouts or Americans or Jewish or Protestants or whatever–because their ambition is straight out of Orwell’s “1984,” and they enjoy the idea of a pyramid-style dystopia—-take a good look at the movies they’ve been making in recent past years, for example–the Hunger Games etc. And all the “zombie” games and films to set up the vision of a virus-apocalypse, and the use of violence they will justify.
    The Neo -Confederacy is the upper echelon of so-called “Democrats.” The rank and file do not, for the most part, understand their leaders. But these leaders are the most amoral and maniacally greedy group of conquerors since the middle ages. They hate all sentimentalism, contentment, stability, happiness and prosperity. And they are the mortal enemies of anyone who loves their family, religion, traditions, and country.
    Honor, ethics and morality are unknown to Neo-Confederates. Words and speeches are like crowbars to them—blunt instruments to pry you open with imagined fear, inferiority, and guilt. The Corona Flu “infomercials” are a type of 24-hour hypnotic programming to scare you into submission. Emotive language and imagery are used to LOWER YOUR IMMUNITY, and ingrain imagery to expect the worse. Operant conditioning hooks you on watching these shows again and again, to relieve your anxiety, while the Fear-Inferiority-Guilt messages are implanted in your mind. Any basic course in psychoneuroimmunology (the mind-body connection) can tell you what happens when you watch this “shock” programming for any length of time. And any basic course in statistics— or market research & polling– will tell you how easy it is to manipulate research to manipulate the public. In polls, it is considered UNETHICAL to ask questions that lead to a foregone conclusion, or leave out numbers if they do not work out in your favor. But the Neo-Confederates DO NOT CARE for ethics–only manipulation–especially emotional manipulation.
    It happens I have the education and foresight to understand the motivation behind every little thing they do. Up until now its been psychological warfare. PsyOps come first. Next, physical warfare. E.G., expect border checkpoints, and just wait until they put computer chips and tracking devices into the masks they will force everyone to wear.
    Facelessness—the NDA ideal for the cattle they consider us to be….. “Eyes Without A Face.”
