Party offers specific section for antisemitism complaints – but complaints of any other form of racism are lumped into the general complaints form
The Forde Report commissioned by Keir Starmer confirmed what many have known all along – and Starmer continues to refuse to accept: that Labour right that now rules the party operates a clear and contemptible ‘hierarchy of racism’ in which antisemitism is prioritised above any of the far more prevalent forms of racism rampant among the party’s right-wingers:
Black, Muslim and other anti-racism activists point out that racism against black people, Muslims, Gypsy-Roma people and other minority groups runs unchecked among the Labour right and is far more prevalent in the party currently than antisemitism ever was – and one activist drew Skwawkbox’s attention to the fact that the clear prioritisation of one form of racism above all others is clear in the party’s own website.
Labour’s complaints page contains buttons for three categories of complaint – a general complaints tab, one for sexual harassment and one for antisemitism complaints:
While antisemitism complaints stand alone in their own dedicated category, complaints about any other form of racism – again, far more rampant among the Labour right than antisemitism ever was on the left – and misogyny have no obvious destination and have to be lumped together via the general ‘Make a Complaint’ section.
The Birmingham section of Labour’s BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) group pointed out one of the very clear issues with this:
If anything could more neatly encapsulate the obvious bias and ‘hierarchy of racism’ confirmed by the Forde Inquiry, it’s hard to imagine what it is.
Keir Starmer’s Labour is a racist regime.
