Theresa May to be next Prime Minister


With Andrea Leavson pulling out of the Conservative Leadership race, Theresa May is almost certain to become the next British Prime Minister.

With the Labour party seemingly in utter disarray what does all this mean for Black Britain?

Well in truth we just don’t know. On the plus side May has been a champion in confronting as never before the issue of ‘Stop and search’ and how it demonises Black youth. Deaths in police custody, coupled with the negative racial aspect of mental health has also been a cause the May has sought to fight.

Black flight: England’s changing suburbs


Simon Woolley vividly remembers his introduction to the English suburbs. He was detained and handcuffed outside his own home by police officers who refused to believe he lived there. But for the intervention of his white English neighbours, who hurried to vouch for him, the black Briton was on an ignominious route to the local station. These things stay with you.

America’s soul burns with racial hatred


America woke up this morning counting more dead bodies as a direct result of its never ending racial divide and growing hatred.

This time gun men in Dallas, Texas took up sniper positions to gun down police officers in what seems to be a back-lash to the fatal shootings of two innocent Black men by white officers in the last 48 hrs.

It was no coincidence that the slaughter of five police officers, and six others critically wounded was at a Blacklivesmatter protest around the two killings of Black men - Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Alton Sterling: Black lives still don’t matter


Another cold blooded murder. Another Black man shot in the back at the hands of trigger happy white police officer. Another brick in the wall that screams to Black America: you’ll always be inferior to us, and we have the ultimate power to take your life.

Race equality groups demand hate crime strategy


National and local race equality groups have come together to show solidarity with all of those minorities who have been subject to unprecedented levels of racial abuse over the last few months. We have also sought to show leadership including demanding that Government urgently produce a National Hate Crime strategy that both offers protection and sets a standard for the whole of society, including MPs to adhere to.

The Tory Leadership: The knives out



Tory leader! Who will best deliver race equality?


Not since the end of the 2nd World War has Britain has seemed so uncertain about its leadership and vision for the future. Worse still the xenophobic climate has made many of us feel decidedly anxious about what direction our society will go.

Equally, unprecedented as a direct result of Brexit is that both main political parties will in the weeks and months ahead be choosing who will be their leader.

Now racists turn on white foreigners


For many years xenophobia-which is a dislike of foreigners- was almost always the exclusive preserve for targeting those who are non white- even if they were not foreigners. Not anymore.

The post Brexit climate across the UK has let out a poisoned bigoted genie who’ll not be returned anytime soon.

Yesterday whilst on LBC’ James O’Brian programme, a distressed caller phoned in to highlight the abuse she had received since the election day.
