I’ve long thought the COVID lockdowns were unconstitutional, overbroad, and ineffective. For this, I’ve been called a “grandma killer.” But now Science™ has proven my moral superiority. You see, lockdowns are an insidious tool of White Supremacy.
According to a UK study sponsored by the Woolf Institute, working from home can lead to more prejudice.
Workplace friendships are key to breaking down misconceptions, the England and Wales study for the Woolf Institute suggests.
Institute founder Ed Kessler said as more people work from home they risk going “back into isolated silos”.
He called on ministers to focus on offices and workplaces as a “vital” area for improving community relations.
More than 11,000 adults across England and Wales were interviewed. The Institute then used a technique called Multilevel Regression Poststratification, which certainly sounds very sciency. This revealed that working from home — and the lockdowns that force people to work from home — are racist. And you can’t argue with science.
The study suggests that of those who work in shared offices, three-quarters (76%) – regardless of ethnicity – were in a setting that is ethnically diverse.
However, it suggests that unemployed people are 37% more likely to only have friends from their own ethnic group.
And it warns that without alternative settings to offices being set up, opportunities for social mixing between different religious and ethnic groups will be greatly reduced.
Thank you, Science™, for confirming that my lockdown skepticism is not only sound on libertarian principles, but also on wokeness. Anyone who promotes lockdowns is a racist, white-supremacist science-denier. I bet they even think that all lives matter.
Hopefully, the Woolf Institute will next prove that masks cause climate change so we can all go about our lives in peace and freedom.Published in
