Description

Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/1E109Gv Adrian Hart, filmaker and author of the book 'That's Racist', talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about racism in the UK. He believes it needed to be said that Britain is less racist than the 1980s, and as racism recedes, ‘official anti-racism’ increases. The Macpherson inquiry brought in a ‘colour-coded’ notion of the suffering of ethnic minorities in this country, and expanded the idea of institutional racism to society as a whole, suggesting it was unconscious, unwitting, and a ‘social disease endemic across the white population.’ Teachers now have to record racist incidents, using the Macpherson definition – any incident perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person – and to play safe will record any kind of name-calling, ignoring the fact that they are kids and elevating it to a racist incident. And he believes that all the data points out is kids can be nasty.
