“I don’t think it’s useful to talk about institutional racism. It’s individuals who are racist.”
Home Secretary Blunkett, BBC Radio 4, 27/10/03.
What an ignorant man! Blunkett’s ‘off-the-cuff’ statement says it all but I have no intention of letting him or the class he represents off-the-hook in the way he does in shrugging off the state’s central role in perpetuating racist ideology as a method of social control, both at home and abroad.
