Please read description; Western Rationalism in the modern conception is based on empiricism which developed out of epicurean philosophy's focus on the scientific principle that we don't know everything in totality but use the scientific method to reduce the margin of error by increments vs that was another school of rationalism which developed the idea that by using logic we could eventually gain fuller understanding i.e by reason we would eventually know all that was apt for us to know - that was Stoic philosophy the tensions between them have driven western civilization forward to be apt to survive.
However Afrocentrism has no used such self-examination. Even though Diane Abbot would not exist if history had taken a different route, nor would any of us, what is however cynical & invasive is the idea that you can attach hyphenated ethnic minority interest to destroy the principles of citizenship which are universal to all citizens; if the true meaning of social Democracy as I see it is to deliver by increments a fair and equal situation between citizens then our loyalty to each other is expressed in the nation & through rationalism. An un-reasoned statement such as "white's love to divide & rule" or Julius Malema shouting & singing "kill the Boer Kill the Farmer" is not rational even from a Afrocentric point of view as the Boer's farming produce keeps many Bantu & Khosa Africans alive.
Diane Abbot may not realize this but she does a disservice to Social Democracy & to the Western Rationalist culture of Europe by being negative about the culture that raised educated & protected her, a debate is a high principle to uphold but unless you have a better suggestion negative criticism is not constructive its just self indulgent.
It also brings the Labour Tradition of Patriotic Social Democracy into repute & drives away electors to the enemies of this nations noble traditions; i.e to UKIP & other Thatcherite factions.
