Met Police media team disproportionately highlights ‘Black crime’

Everyone – except Cressida Dick – knows that the Metropolitan Police is institutionally racist. But it is still arresting when its full extent is revealed.

The latest such evidence comes from tan exclusive report by Huffington Post, in conjunction with data crunchers and researcher company Statista.

Their research into Met police PR department has discovered that they disproportionately post pictures of Black people who have been involved in violent crime than they do when white people are involved.

Just as with the discredited ‘gang matrix’ (which is nevertheless still in use as a blatant racial-profiling tool), the police betray the fact that they have a view of Black people which sees them as violent and criminal, so the staffers in the Met police PR department think they are just doing their job, when in fact they reveal their own prejudice attitudes and no doubt discriminatory behaviour that informs it.

Met police racism: here’s the most damning part of the findings:

According to data we obtained from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), 13,897 people were sentenced in London between July and December of 2019 – the most recent MoJ data of this type available. Some 3,540 were white and 2,298 Black. 

Ethnicity data was unavailable for almost 6,000 people, and for the purposes of this investigation, HuffPost UK has removed them from the total.

In the same period, the Met Police published news releases on its public website and directly to journalists about 324 people who had been sentenced. Of these, 107 were white, while 141 were Black.

The report also discovered that the 37-page media policy includes no guidance on racial profiling, with not a single mention of ‘race’ or ‘ethnicity’ anywhere within the document.

Outrage as Manchester uni security guards racially profile black student

There was outrage at the end of last week after Manchester Uni security guards racially profile one of the institution’s black students as he tries to enter his hall of residence.

The incident took place on Friday 13th November on the university’s Fallowfield campus.

The racist security guards who violently slammed the student against the wall associate black skin with not “looking right” on a university campus.

Apparently there has been a lot of drugs being dealt and used by students (yeah, that stuff happens at universites) and if you are black you must be the drug dealer!

What is the name of this security firm? They need to lose the contract with the university.

All of the security guards involved need to be fired forthwith.

Manchester uni racial profilingof its black students is intolerable.

The University told the Guardian newspaper, “On Saturday 14 November we were made aware of an alleged serious incident on our campus and began investigating it immediately. We have been in regular contact with the affected party and keeping them fully informed of our progress.”

But as yet no action has been taken against the company that provides the security service, although the guards have now been suspended.

No respect for students as Univesity of Manchester tries to fence in students

This outrage follows the university erecting fencing around student halls as they sought to cage them in on campus as supposed Covid safety measure.

A student rebellion led to the tearing down of the fencing, forcing the university to apologise.

Universities across the UK duoed students into returning to campuses in order to pocket their fees and rent monet , while providing no Covid safety measures.

On the contrary, cramming students into halls and busy campuses turned universities into major Covid hotspots in their communities.
