Racism is a social, economic and ethical problem that has existed for several centuries.
Although awareness is on the rise, and the overt, aggressive incidents are fewer in number, racism continues to exist in the UK. Minority groups and individuals belonging to different ethnicities face subtle, indirect racial discrimination in several ways.
Racial discrimination exists in schools and offices and affects diverse populations in many ways. It not only affects mental, emotional and physical wellbeing but also impacts other spheres of life. As a nation, the UK stands to benefit greatly by harnessing the talents of ethnic minorities and ensuring that every individual is treated with respect and dignity.
Whether it’s a tourist visiting Britain or an immigrant who has settled here, minority populations should be able to enjoy equal rights and opportunities.
