Racism in the UK: Building Bridges In Highly Polarized Situations

Monday 20th July 2020

"LONDON - The Covid-19 pandemic opened people's eyes to discrepancies in societies like never before, not least the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on the BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) community. This coupled with the shocking racist events in the US has finally put tackling systemic racism to the top of the agenda all over the world, including here in the UK."

Black trainee vicar denies role in White church

Monday 6th July 2020

Reprehensible! Race discrimination recorded on paper! I am quite frankly appalled...but sadly not surprised. It's another example of why there are so few black people represented in major institutions in this country. The author of the letter felt quite comfortable outlining the reasons for the denial of the position, which in itself causes huge concern. And exactly what is "monochrome working class"? That's an insult in itself to that community. The institutions that need the intervention of equality experts, will not engage them. What does that say about their willingness to learn and change? I would love a conversation with the author of that letter! https://www-bbc-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-tyne-53064929
