Doesn't  upset me.
Nor does it surprise me.
A govt who do not believe there is institutional racism in the UK, set up a commission headed by people who have previously stated they don't  believe that the UK is institutionally racist and then produce a report which concludes that the UK is not institutionally racist.

In other news scientific research commissioned by the tobacco industry finds that there are significant health benefits  from smoking.

I would have preferred that taxpayers money was not wasted on what was always going to be a foregone conclusion.
There members of this commission and the Consevative Party are perfectly entitled to their views on this subject, but I don't  see why the taxpayer should have to pay for its communication

“There is a new story about the Caribbean experience which speaks to the slave period not only being about profit and suffering but how culturally African people transformed themselves into a re-modelled African/Britain.”

From the report, the hell does that even mean?

talking of selective quotation - you missed this part:

"That said, we take the reality of racism seriously and we do not deny that it is a real force in the UK."

The way this report is being portayed is a disgrace. Channel 4 News began by saying it stated there is no racism in the UK and that the Government intended the Report to inflame people.

The Report says nothing of the sort to when anyone actually reads it.

Wouldn't it be great if people could actually read it and debate what it actually says, sensibly, without lying about the content?

Wouldn't that be progress? Hell, wouldn't it be progressive even?
