(and the BBC are freaking out at the news)
A report commissioned to look into race equality following the Black Lives Matter riots of last year has concluded that not only does institutional racism not exist but that Britain should be seen as model of racial equality.
The report by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities has is sparked an angry response from the BBC who have spent all morning desperately attempting to disprove the report, and discredit its authors.
The commission’s chairman, Dr Tony Sewell, said the report did not deny that racism exists in Britain, but there was no evidence “of actual institutional racism”. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “What we have seen is that the term ‘institutional racism’ is sometimes wrongly applied and it’s been a sort of a catch-all phrase for micro-aggressions or acts of racial abuse. Also people use it interchangeably – systematic racism, structural racism [are] just being used wrongly.”
The report also concludes that unconscious bias doesn't exist either, and training for it should be stopped, and even goes so far as to suggest the term BAME should stop.
The report is an open rebuff to the arguments of the BLM movement, though it doesn't refer to BLM as a Marxist trojan horse directly it dispels the myths and propaganda the movement and the protests that erupted after the death of George Floyd in the US, the report is described as saying “the well-meaning idealism of many young people who claim the country is still institutionally racist is not borne out by the evidence”.
Until now millions of white people across Britain have been accused of racism purely because of the colour of their skin, the very definition of racism itself, angering the indigenous population who have shown incredible amounts of tolerance. This report now dispels the myths that have been perpetrated over the last decade and it is hoped that this signals a return to some sanity in the UK.
However, security experts are warning that, if the police officers are found not guilty in the George Floyd case, that they fully expect rioting to ensue in the UK and US, and that the public should expect this to be more violent than those witnessed last summer.
