Commission on Race & Ethnic Disparities

C Encyclopaedia Africana April 21, 2021 UNITED NATIONS CALLS FOR COMMISSION ON RACE & ETHNIC DISPARITIES TO BE DISBANDED

institutional racism, structural invisibility, and longstanding inequalities have disproportionately impacted people of African descent living in the UK. Therefore, the suggestion that family structure, rather than institutionalized and structural discriminatory practices are the central features of the Black experience is a tone-deaf attempt at rejecting the lived realities of people of African descent and other ethnic minorities in the UK.

“In 2021, it is stunning to read a report on race and ethnicity that repackages racist tropes and stereotypes into fact, twisting data and misapplying statistics and studies into conclusory findings and ad hominem attacks on people of African descent,” the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent.

“For some groups historic experience of racism still haunts the present and there was a reluctance to acknowledge that the UK had become open and fairer.” – Tony Sewell
