Backlash after U.K. race report seeks to ‘dispel myths’ about racism, tell ‘new story’ about slave trade

LONDON — As a backlash built Thursday in Britain over a commissioned report critics say whitewashes the state of race relations, the resignation of the prime minister’s most senior Black adviser became public.

Many lawmakers, activist groups and critics have branded the review of racial disparities, commissioned by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the wake of last year’s British Black Lives Matter protests and released Wednesday, “divisive,” “insulting,” and “deeply cynical.”

The lengthy study, which was published by experts from the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, described Britain as a model for race relations and found there to be “no institutional racism” in the country.

“It’s complete nonsense,” Kehinde Andrews, a professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University, told the BBC. “It goes in the face of all the actual existing evidence.”

“Put simply we no longer see a Britain where the system is deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities,” the report, which is 258 pages long, said. The findings reflect the work of 10 experts, nine of whom are from ethnic minority backgrounds.

One passage in the report has drawn particular attention.

“There is a new story about the Caribbean experience which speaks to the slave period not only being about profit and suffering but how culturally African people transformed themselves into a re-modeled African/Britain,” the report read.

Marsha de Cordova, Labour’s shadow women and equalities secretary, slammed the section as “one of the worst bits” of the review, saying it put "a positive spin on slavery and empire.” She called on the government to swiftly disassociate itself from the report and said in a statement Thursday that Kasumu’s resignation is reflective of “how far removed” the Conservative party is from “the lived experience of Black, Asian and ethnic minority people.”

Wait, so the study found that living life means that sometimes things happen that a person may not like and that those things arent borne from racism? Huh.
China has literally stuck it in the Biden Administrations ass.

I didn't say it was a good example. I was just saying it relates. :lol:
