On 12th November, TREC held the first of a continuing series of debates addressing contemporary issues of Racism in UK.
This first debate was addressed by Professor Gus John. He talked about the continuing dynamic of racism in political discourse and the failure of representative politics to address either the continuing racial disadvantage that exists in UK or the tendency to blame immigration for poor race relations.
About 60 people, of all races and ages, attended to take part in this debate which was illustrated by examples drawn from the direct experiences of Professor John and other contributors. Professor John argued that, in moving forward, we need to change the public narrative which has been in place for decades which has established White people as the norm and racial minority people as an “other”.
Professor John’s presentation was video-recorded and will soon be available via the TREC website.
