One could only imagine the justified public outcry if a Government sponsored report into Anti-Semitism concluded, unilaterally and without prompt that there were positive elements about the Holocaust. Why then should Black people living in the UK accept anything less in regards to this grubby report and its deeply insulting remarks about slavery?

The Government sponsored Racial Disparity Commission report into racism not only concludes that systemic race inequality does not exist, which both ignores countless reports over many years that the prove the opposite, but also trounces on our lived experience of persistent and often tragic levels of race inequality in many area of our society, including the criminal justice system, employment, health and housing.

If this systemic race inequality denial wasn’t bad enough, particularly after Covid-19 and its devastating impact on Black and Asian communities, the author and signed commissioners feel arrogant and disrespectful enough to tell Black Briton’s that part of the enslavement of our ancestors was good thing because we ‘re-modelled’, ourselves to ‘African/Britain’. Presumably the author means we should be grateful that our culture, including our African names, were erased by our enslavers.

This petition calls upon the Government, political parties, all politicians and others to unequivocally denounce this divisive, deceitful, shabby report (The Commission's report into racial and ethnic disparities in the UK), along with its author Dr Tony Sewell. But it also calls upon the new Head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Baroness Faulkner, to unequivocally apologise for endorsing a report that is both insulting to all Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and one that undermines the EHRC in its duty to tackle persistent structural race inequality.
