Message from Theresa May, Prime Minister

I am proud to support Black History Month and I want to pay tribute to everyone who, over the last thirty years, has helped to support this opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary contribution that our African and African Caribbean communities make to our United Kingdom.

Today, in every walk of life, from business to politics, sport to culture, there are African and African Caribbean men and women whose achievements are not just making our country a better place but inspiring others to follow in their footsteps to even greater success.

So as we mark the 30th anniversary of Black History Month, it is right to look back with pride on the progress that has been made in taking on racism and discrimination. But I am also clear just how far we have to go, not just in rooting out hatred and prejudice from our society, but in tackling injustices that still hold back too many people in our country today.

That is why this Black History Month I am publishing the first results of the work which I commissioned within months of becoming Prime Minister – an unprecedented audit of public services to reveal racial disparities right across government. It exposes some uncomfortable truths about the injustices that still exist in our society today – from health and education to the welfare and criminal justice systems.

As Prime Minister I make no apology for exposing these truths. I believe it is my duty to shine a light on these injustices and I want to lead a national effort to address them so that Britain can truly become a country that works for everyone. That is my pledge this Black History Month and I hope you will work with me to make it a reality.

Theresa May
Prime Minister

Might it be suggested to show also such which is occurring in the professions too?


I WOULD LOVE TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THERESA MAY AS I THINK SHE IS A FINE
LEADER AND THE REST OF THE GOVERMENT AROUND HER NEED TO GET OF THEIR
BACKSIDES AND SURPORT HER.AND I AM SORRY TO SAY IT IS THE MEN AROUND HER WHO ARE THE MAIN CULPRITS.I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HALF OF THEM BEING ABLE TO GO THROUGH THE STRONG WORK REGIME SHE HAS PERFORMED IN THE LAST MONTH.I CAN SAY THAT IF MRS MAY IS REMOVED THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY WILL LOSE THE NEXT ELECTION.I AND MANY OF OUR FRIENDS WILL NOT SUPPORT THE PARTY AGAIN.UNLESS A MEMBER OF THE PARTY HAS A CYRISTAL BALL AND CAN PREDICT THE OUTCOME OF LIFE FOR US I THINK THEY SHOULD COMPLY WITH THE BRITISH PEOPLES DEMAND(I WANTED TO REMAIN) AND STAND UP BEHIND THE BEST CHANCE OF A SETTLED AND PROSPEROUS BRITAIN


Hope that we can be forgiven


Very interesting that you’re revealing the institutionalised racial discrimination. Although I don’t expect the status quo to swiftly change, perhaps not in the next generation, but surely, the foundations of racism is being eroded gradually.


Hi, I HAVE FOUND MY CAPS LOCK BUTTON. Why is the architect and creator of the Hostile Environment Working Group getting even a photo on this site? – just asking.


    Because we believe in a free press.


    Firstly, is wasn’t the Theresa May she wasn’t Prime Minister. He was killed by his own people. After may I remind you killing his foreign secretary, then keeping him in a deep-freeze in his palace so that he could regularly have a gloat over the body; visiting classrooms of 15- and 16-year-old girls, patting the ones he fancied on their heads, then having them dragged off by his security, gynaecologically inspected and shown pornographic videos (to educate them in his expectations) before raping them and then having them put away in asylums; deliberately shooting down one of his own domestic airliners, partly for the sheer hell of it, partly as a ruse to show the West that its sanctions were hurting Libya so badly that it couldn’t afford to maintain its own aircraft… It’s easy for people like you to critise. But whats would you have done?
