Racism Draws Criticism

A report on racism commissioned by the United Kingdom has drawn criticism from upholders of racial equality. The Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities was established last summer in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in the USA. That death sparked protests across the world and fuelled the Black Lives Matter movement.

The commission acknowledged that racism remains a “real force” in the UK. However, it said the British system is no longer “deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities”. It said people use racism as a “catch-all explanation” for not getting ahead in life. It added that geography, family, socio-economic background, culture, and religion have a more significant impact on success in life than race.

    Funny! I lived in UK for 2 years and the natives I worked with told me all about the prejudices rampant in their country like racism and religious prejudice.
    We experienced it too. If you are catholic in England you will get snubbed. And people will ask you outright what religion you are! It was strange to us.
    I am so sick of all this racism talk about America! We are a baby country. Does anyone realize that Britain was a HUGE slave country and brought their ways to the new world. British was also a vicious empire at one time.
