China News Service, Beijing, July 14 (Jiang Li) In the recent European Cup finals, the English players Marcus Rashford, Jaden Sancho and Bucayo Saka three black players, because He failed to score in a penalty shoot-out and was racially abused on social media.

The most natural scene on the green field turned out to be a target for racist people, which once again exposed the stubborn disease of racism in the UK.

  A few days ago, a 19-year-old Chinese student was attacked in Sheffield.

On the day of the incident, the Chinese girl had just come out of a store for shopping. A British woman insulted her with racist words, then slapped her, grabbed her hair and dragged her to the ground.

After the girl was pushed to the ground, the assailant kicked her head vigorously. The assailant also picked up a glass bottle and tried to smash the girl's head...

  All the above are just the tip of the iceberg of racial discrimination exposed in British society.

According to the report of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, racism in the UK has intensified in recent years, and systematic discrimination, violent provocations and hate crimes against minorities have increased significantly.

Minorities were abused and provoked, walking on the streets to be attacked for no reason...From verbal attacks to violent attacks, similar incidents have occurred one after another, causing the British minorities to fall into the fear of racial discrimination.

  However, in the face of the status quo, the British government has not only failed to reflect on itself, but also tried to hide its ears and whitewash itself.

The racism investigation report released by the British government on March 31 this year stated that there was insufficient evidence to prove that there is systemic and institutional racial discrimination in the UK, and it bluntly stated that the UK should be regarded as a model for other white-dominated countries.

As soon as the report was published, it was met with strong protests from ethnic minorities in the UK and widespread doubts from all walks of life.

Even the UN Human Rights Council Expert Group on People of African Descent issued a statement, strongly condemning the British report for distorting and fabricating historical facts and using clichés to beautify the racial hierarchy to justify "white supremacy".

  Whether it is a black race or a yellow race... In recent years, the minorities who have suffered discrimination in the UK have always been fighting for their rights. What they expect and fight for is nothing more than the daily preaching of the "superior" group, but it cannot be fulfilled. "Equality" is nothing more than.

  The United Kingdom claims to be a "human rights standard bearer" and is keen to be a "teacher". It often criticizes the human rights situation in other countries, but turns a blind eye to its own human rights issues.

If the British government really wants to defend the "freedom, equality and democracy" they admire, it should take active actions to fundamentally change the human rights dilemma faced by minorities in the UK and create a fair and safe living environment for them.

UK's racial discrimination disease should be cured

By John Lee

(ECNS) - Three English football players — Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, who are of African descent and missed their penalties in defeat against Italy in the Euro 2020 final — were inundated abuse with racial on social media platforms, which has exposed the deep-rooted racism in the UK once again.

Another race hate case occurred in Sheffield in May. A 19-year-old Chinese student was violently attacked by a British woman who demanded to know if she was Chinese, hit her in the face and pulled her to the ground by her hair. The attacker allegedly picked up a bottle but was intercepted by passersby.

The two cases are just the tip of the iceberg. Racism in the UK has intensified, and systemic discrimination, violent provocation and hate crimes against ethnic minorities have increased in recent years, according to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Both verbal and physical attacks have put ethnic minorities in fear of racial discrimination and challenged their psychological endurance.

But instead of reflecting on and trying to find solutions to these problems, the UK government has turned a blind eye to the status quo and tried to whitewash it. The country said it "no longer" has a system rigged against people from ethnic minorities and should be seen as a "model for other white-majority countries," according to a report released by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, which sparked wide outrage from UK society and its ethnic minorities. The report was also slammed by the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, which claims "the report cites dubious evidence to make claims that rationalize white supremacy by using the familiar arguments that have always justified racial hierarchy."

All British ethnic minorities, including Africans and Asians, have long fought for illusive equal rights. Racial equality, which is always on the lips of white people, however, has never become reality.

Some UK politicians always object to other countries' human rights issues, but shut their eyes to their own problems. If the government really wants to defend its UK-style "freedom, equality and democracy," it must act to change the dilemma faced by ethnic minorities and create a fair and safe living environment for them.
