British society is in "self-denial" about racism, according to race equality campaigner and Palamedes PR client Anuranjita Kumar
UK society is in “self-denial mode” about racism, with open discussion about the issue still a social taboo, according to race equality campaigner Anuranjita Kumar.
Speaking exclusively to global news and lifestyle website The London Economic, Ms Kumar – a client of book PR agency Palamedes – said that “tolerance’ to racist attitudes is “one of the biggest roadblocks” to dealing with racism.
She added that this taboo is being perpetuated by a fear of “being singled-out” if speaking out against racist behaviour.
Ms Kumar conducted a global study into BAME individuals’ experiences of racism for her book Colour Matters? The Truth That No One Wants To See, published through Bloomsbury.
In the interview she also discusses her own encounters with racism and offers her advice on how victims can best respond to prejudice.
