UK no longer country ‘where system is deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities’,

The UK is no longer a country “where the system is deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities”, a government-ordered review has said.

The Independent Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities – which was appointed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson following last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests – has published its 258-page report on inequality in Britain.

It said the UK “should be regarded as a model for other white-majority countries” although it cannot be considered “a post racial society”.

“Overt and outright racism persists in the UK”, particularly online, the report found, adding that it remained a “real force” and should be taken “seriously”.

But it also said: “Too often ‘racism’ is the catch-all explanation, and can be simply implicitly accepted rather than explicitly examined.Advertisement

“The evidence shows that geography, family influence, socio-economic background, culture and religion have more significant impact on life chances than the existence of racism.”
