Racism remains a significant problem in the United Kingdom, both systemic (occurring throughout society) and institutional (within organisations). While many racial injustices have been addressed over the past few decades, the racial marginalisation of individuals and groups remains deeply ingrained in our society. It can take many forms: from explicit hatred and violence, as with hate crimes, which reached a record high in the UK in 2019, to discrimination in areas such as employment, education and policing. As long as these issues persist, they give urgency to anti-racist education and activism.
