Ash Sarkar: This is England

Ash Sarkar’s Alternative Race Report

“No other country could have made someone as obnoxious as me”

Sarkar brilliantly connects institutional racism with class consciousness. She critiques the Tory obsession with identity politics and “Brown faces in high places” as a Capitalist race strategy.

However, it’s very interesting to hear from Mercy Muroki herself report on her research on the conditions of Black Britains from various ethnic groups. Interestingly, her analysis agrees with Sarkars’ views, that social class is as important as race for determining one’s ability to thrive in Britain. Muroki’s report doesn’t say that ‘there is no racism in Britain’, but argues for a more nuanced understanding of the different forms of racism and how it manifests.
