Black Lives Matter: Has anything really changed?
“It has been nearly a year since the shocking death of George Floyd, triggered protests around the world and calls for actions rather than words to tackle racism. So, has anything fundamentally changed in that time? How much have governments, institutions, the media and society generally taken those calls on board?

Of course it changed, the election is over. See you all in 4 years.
The report that was published today in which Britain is apparently a 'model' on race has used the success of Black, Asian minority ethnic people as a way to gaslight these communities. It's basically you're doing well…so the fact YOU (people in ethnic minority communities) think that institutional racism still exists is in your head and its a 'victim' mentality in which you're playing the race card.
Britain is creating its own narrative of how institutionally racist it is. Its basically 'we're not racist', so then I must believe you're not ? Make it make sense.
The fact that Britain cannot admit its own colonial past and the part it played in the slave trade is shown in the History curriculum. Germany teaches the Holocaust in depth because it wants to make sure such an atrocious thing will never happen again. Britain has yet to do the same with its own dark, sordid past.
Yet it is a 'model' on race according to this review….
white people feel like theyre being attacked… thats about it
I think to tackle racism and many other issues there`s one great project: Sensibilisation Education and Life Condition Improvement (SELIC) . It would bring down the social and wealth inequalities which are borne on women and minority communities with a social policy of support for the at-needs and the working class population. Sensibilise the whole society about racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, mental health issues and how they occur. Educate our youth through a curriculum about mental health issues and a curriculum on cultural studies to help our youth understand every single culture and debank the stigmas and the cliches on any cultures.
Nothing has changed and nothing will be changing as long as people have the same outdated mindset in order to combat any issue we have to change the people’s way of thinking we have to raise their awareness about whatever they need to be aware of and so on .
