I can’t ignore what is going on in the world at the moment. My Twitter, Facebook and Instagram has become my political news feed where videos, photos and information is being shared, such important information, that has failed to be covered by our own British news. The reason I am writing today is to educate and inform MY readers through MY platform about some key British historical events relating to the struggles of black people which some people may be unaware of, and to provide contextual information surrounding this enduring issue that white people may never face.
Furthermore, below are some key events which happened in the UK which should be spoken about if they aren’t being spoken about already.
The issues of racism will forever be important. Racism still exists in the UK and worldwide, it hasn’t just gone away. I do not and will not ever understand personally the issues that black people face, but I will stand against the people who think it’s acceptable to create and escalate these racist issues. Enough is enough. #BlackLivesMatter
