Last night I watched the Panorama report about racism in the UK. It focused on the Southmead and St Anne’s estated in Bristol. Here is the blurb.
In a shocking insight into race hate and anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods, Tamanna Rahman was pelted with glass and stones and threatened with a brick during an attempted mugging by an eleven year-old boy. Her “husband,” Amil Khan, was punched in the head. Yet the head of the Government’s equality watchdog has said that having a neighbour of a different ethnic background isn’t an issue any more.
Panorama investigates the truth about racism and anti-social behaviour in Britain today.
Here is the link. I know from my experience in the Beeston/Holbeck area of Leeds that racism, particularly towards the Islamic community is rife in some areas.
