Civil servants are being taught Britain is a ‘racist’ country in training video | The Sun
CIVIL servants are being taught Britain is a ‘racist’ country and to not contradict ethnic minorities on racial issues.
A training video for civil servants at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, which is in charge of race relations, said white civil servants should be aware of their “privilege”.
Urging white people to be allies by becoming “cheerleaders”, it says “When we become an ally, this primarily means acknowledging that we, ourselves, are part of a society, norm, culture or a system that is racist.”
It says white allies should be a “supporter”, meaning they “listen and do not contradict” ethnic minority people.
The training urges allies to act on racial issues by “shifting the spotlight on to a person of colour”.
“When talking about issues that concern them, try to defer to them, supporting them to field relevant questions,” it says.

UNI WHITE DROP
WHITE teens were the least likely ethnic group to go to Britain’s top universities for the first time on record.
Department for Education stats show just 10.5 per cent of white pupils are at elite unis — the smallest proportion of any ethnic goup.
Chinese people were most likely to attend the top unis such as Oxford and Cambridge in 2020-21, followed Asian and black teens.
