BFI Admits To Systemic Racism & Vows To Improve After Apologizing To ‘Four Lions’ Producer For Mishandling Discrimination Complaint

British Film Institute, one of the UK’s most powerful movie funding bodies, admitted to a filmmaker of color last year that it is “systemically racist” after apologizing for how it handled his long-running complaint over alleged discrimination.

UK failing to address systemic racism against black people, warn UN experts

“We have serious concerns about impunity and the failure to address racial disparities in the criminal justice system, deaths in police custody, ‘joint enterprise’ convictions and the dehumanising nature of the stop and (strip) search,” the working group said in a statement.

Lidia Thorpe says 'systemic racism' led to a media pile on after her assault allegations | SBS NITV

Ms Thorpe said systemic racism led to her own allegations not being taken seriously. "It's been horrible," said Thorpe. "I became the perpetrator ... I became the subject of a media pile on that day, and it wasn't until a white woman stood up and said 'Yeah this happened to me too' that the media took notice. "I think that is a great example of the media landscape in this country, and that is systemic racism. "I was not believed, I was questioned. I was demonsied by every body. And you wonder why women don't speak out."

Against automated plagiarism – Iris van Rooij

Black women’s writings are systemically omitted from syllabi (…) Both soft and hard power within academia is afforded disproportionately to white people, especially men, and to those who are aligned with the current hegemony. Birhane & Guest (2021, p. 62)

Evictions skyrocket as rising rents squeeze low-income Americans | PBS News Weekend

So, for example, that's a family of four bringing in less than $25,000 in annual income. Or it's an individual senior or a person with disabilities who has a limited twelve to $15,000 a year income. So they have very little available to pay for rent and have enough money left over for all of life's other necessities. And it's people of color who are most impacted and most harmed by the housing market. Black, Latino and indigenous people are disproportionately extremely low income renters due to decades of systemic racism and ongoing discrimination in many systems. And so they are dispropor...

Discrimination based on names is rampant, according to a study that found anglo job applicants are more likely to get a call back than Arabic, Indian or other ethnic names

Job applicants with surnames such as Habib, Huang, Papadopoulos or Singh are 60 per cent less likely to get a call back for a leadership role than those with English-sounding names such as Smith, Williams or Thornbury-Drummond. This is the finding of a two-year study by Monash University researchers, who sent more than 12,000 fabricated job applications to more than 4000 real advertisements for jobs in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to investigate whether there was systemic – even if unconscious – discrimination against ethnic groups.

According to a comprehensive study conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2022, an overwhelming 63% of diversity and inclusion leadership roles were occupied by White women.

While the presence of White women in DEI leadership may be seen by some as a testament to the progress we've made in addressing gender inequality, it also inadvertently casts a shadow on the very principles of DEI. In an ideal world, the diversity of decision-making individuals should reflect the diversity of those they represent. However, we live in a world where societal constructs and systemic biases skew these demographics. So, for me, the question arises: How can white women working in DEI encourage and facilitate broader representation and true equity? Will they? And how do we begin...

Ricki Tarr: "A lot of the time people assum…" -

A lot of the time people assume that if there was a problem women will just say something, but the reality is a lot of the time we feel uncomfortable about something or someone, and we're afraid it's just us, so we keep it to ourselves. 9 times out of 10 it's a pattern of abusive behavior, and the women just leave, because she's afraid to make a scene, and get persecuted. When we talk about misogyny being systemic, this is what we are talking about. Women are encouraged to keep quiet, and bad behavior continues.

These shocking stories explain why Spain’s women’s team want systemic change - The Athletic

After Spain were eliminated from the Women’s World Cup in 2015, senior officials from the country’s football association (RFEF) met with players before they headed home from Canada. It was the first World Cup that Spain had qualified for and an exit at the group stages was a disappointing outcome for everyone. What happened next might seem shocking but, to the players, it was just another example of the broken relationship and toxic attitudes they’d become used to living with. Soon after, they would come together to fight for change — just as we’ve seen happen this year. “I still remember...

Joey Barton: Emma Hayes says women are used to 'systemic misogyny' following comments - BBC Sport

When asked about Barton's comments in a news conference on Friday, Hayes did not name the former Manchester City and QPR player directly. "I don't expect any individual personality to understand their privilege.

Black Women and Barriers to Leadership in ABA | Behavior Analysis in Practice

In recent years, anecdotal data have suggested an increase in the number of Black women in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA). However, there does not appear to be a significant increase in the number of Black women in leadership roles within the field (e.g., clinical directors, heads of university and college ABA programs). Since the diversity of providers and leadership in the field is an important factor in effectively meeting the diverse needs of ABA consumers, the lack of Black women leaders in the field can be described as problematic. Identification of the potential barrier...

A reflection on extractive research: a commitment to uplifting marginalised voices and challenging structural inequality – Systemic Justice

For us, extractive research is characterised by the funding, commissioning, conducting, production, and dissemination of research or knowledge that fails to uplift, represent, or reflect the experiences of racially, socially, and economically marginalised communities. Instead, it often serves the income generation interests of academics, higher education institutions, and a lucrative knowledge-exchange industry, which prioritises the perspectives of public and private corporations, politicians, inter-governmental departments and agencies, and a growing NGO sector.

Advancing Antiracism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in STEMM Organizations: Beyond Broadening Participation | The National Academies Press

Individuals from minoritized racial and ethnic groups continue to face systemic barriers that impede their ability to access, persist, and thrive in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) higher education and workforce. Without actively dismantling policies and practices that disadvantage people from minoritized groups, STEMM organizations stand to lose much needed talent and innovation as well as the ideas that come from having a diverse workforce.

Battling the “headwinds”: the experiences of minoritised academics in the neoliberal Australian university: International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education: Vol 33, No 9

Academics who identify or are identified with minoritised groups in society and teach marginalised subjects are particularly prone to experiencing individual and systemic bias and discrimination which harm their wellbeing and restrict their career advancement. These challenges can be likened to “headwinds” that they must constantly battle against, whilst those belonging to dominant social groups benefit from “tailwind” effects. We critique the framing of the “ideal” academic in the neoliberalised university and argue that it entrenches the marginalisation of academics from minoritised backg...

“I need people to see how systemic racism behaves."

I would love for there to be more Black physicians because that can help to solve the problem,” she says in a video interview with Fortune. “But the other piece of it is we need physicians who are not Black to be able to adequately and competently care for Black people as well.”

As a black woman formerly in executive leadership, the role is challenging, and we later realize that systemic oppression is a disease with no relevant cure.

A wise man once told me that when you begin dismantling a system that wasn’t set up for you to WIN, expect adversity. But no one is there to help guide us when the odds don’t weigh in our favor and we’re forced to walk away from the assignment or purpose we were prepared to pursue.

It's systemic. Black people are about 7½ times more likely to be wrongfully convicted of murder in the U.S. than are whites, and about 80% more likely to be innocent than others convicted of murder, according to a new report by the National Registry of Exonerations. The already disproportionate risk of wrongful conviction, the Registry found, was even worse if the murder victim in a case was white.

10-Year-Old Black Girl Arrested For Drawing of Her School Bully

For decades, activists have sounded the alarm about the school-to-prison pipeline, one of the many insidious systemic issues young Black students face every day. As recent as last year, it was reported that Black children, especially Black girls, are more likely to be criminalized and experience severe punishment over simple schoolyard conflicts that could be quietly resolved in a principal’s office. With that said, two civil rights advocacy groups rightfully cried foul in a letter sent to the Honolulu Police Department, education department and the state attorney general’s office on Monda...

Institutional racism is at work in Australia. How does it affect Indigenous people? | SBS NITV

Institutional racism, also known as systemic racism, describes the existence of racism in the structures that make up modern society. It manifests when institutions, organisations and governments directly or indirectly discriminate against an ethnic group. It systematically disadvantages those groups and further marginalises them within society. We are not short on evidence of the institutional racism that is present in the criminal justice and law enforcement system. Criminal courts are home to a large proportion of white decision makers.

‼️*RACISM* Runs Rampant in NHS Disciplinary Procedures

Numbers don't lie! Since 2015, the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) reports published by NHS England has demonstrated systemic racism in the NHS. The aim is to improve on those figures in an attempt to create an equitable NHS for staff and patients.

These reports have been instrumental in revealing racial disparities within the NHS. Data highlighted in this Equality 4 Black Nurses blog are stark! Please note that an indicator value ...

Getting to the Root of the Problem: Supporting Clients With Lived-Experiences of Systemic Discrimination - Amy Bartlett, Sonya Faber, Monnica Williams, Kellen Saxberg, 2022

For many marginalized people, coping with discrimination is not a temporary condition. Rather it is endemic to living in a discriminatory society and a source of ongoing stress. In this paper, we explore the need to provide people struggling to cope with the skills to tackle not just the personal consequences of discrimination, but also to understand and address the root causes of their pain, and specifically the ones that lie outside of themselves. We propose using the concept of social capital to bring greater awareness among clients, clinicians, and society in general about the need to p...

The Employment Disadvantage of Mothers: Evidence for Systemic Discrimination - Tanya Carney, 2009

When their need to provide care and their need for paid employment are equally important, mothers try to combine both roles, often through part time employment, or to stagger these competing needs by taking employment breaks. Using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia (HILDA) Survey1 this article analyses the resulting detriments to the ability of mothers to continue career paths across the occupational spectrum. Analysis of this data is used to argue that employment disadvantage is generated by mothers' inability to conform to `ideal worker' behaviour and theref...

The legacies of systemic and internalized oppression: Experiences of microaggressions, imposter phenomenon, and stereotype threat on historically marginalized groups - ScienceDirect

Previous literature has described how people of historically marginalized groups (namely people of color, women, queer and transgender people, people living with disabilities, immigrants, and people of religious minority groups) are likely to internalize negative, oppressive feelings about their identities (David, 2014; David, Schroeder, & Femandez, 2019). For example, studies have found that many women and people of color (and women of color, in particular) experience what has been labeled as imposter phenomenon, or the notion that they are not intelligent or adequate enough, despite evide...

Victoria government blasted for rejecting truth-telling inquiry’s key recommendations | Indigenous Australians | The Guardian

Victoria’s First Peoples’ Assembly and the head of the state’s Indigenous truth-telling commission have criticised the Allan Labor government for seeking more time to consider overhauling child protection and criminal justice systems. The government on Wednesday handed down its response to a report by the Yoorrook Justice Commission, which called for it to tackle systemic injustices experienced by First Nations people in the child protection and criminal justice sectors. The government accepted four of the 46 recommendations, while 24 are supported in-principle. But it has rejected three ...

How to be an ally in the workplace: 13 ways to do it |

Many trainings and articles about microaggressions focus on how you can intervene in the moment, which is a crucial part of allyship. But in addition to intervening, there are other important ways to support people who experience microaggressions, systemic inequities and other barriers to opportunity — and one way is through microafffirmations. In contrast to microaggressions, microaffirmations are little ways that you can affirm someone’s identity; recognize and validate their experience and expertise; build confidence; develop trust; foster belonging; and support someone in their career....

How to Foster an Ally Culture in the Workplace | BCG

Strong policies and programs that support DEI across the career lifecycle, from recruitment to retention and advancement, are critical to dismantling these systemic challenges.

A study of over 5,000 Canadians finds that women, the LGBTQ2+ community, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) employees who have allies at work are 1.6 times less likely to perceive obstacles in their day-to-day environment and twice as likely to say their workplace is bias-fr...

Tackling systemic racism and police violence, Victoria – Monash Lens

Australian police forces were brought into being to protect the interests of white settlers against the country’s first inhabitants whose lands and lives were being systematically taken away. This history has translated into contemporary patterns of over-policing and the world’s highest rate of incarceration.

Our past creates our present: a brief overview of racism and colonialism in Western paleontology | Paleobiology | Cambridge Core

As practitioners of a historical science, paleontologists and geoscientists are well versed in the idea that the ability to understand and to anticipate the future relies upon our collective knowledge of the past. Despite this understanding, the fundamental role that the history of paleontology and the geosciences plays in shaping the structure and culture of our disciplines is seldom recognized and therefore not acted upon sufficiently.

JSS1 stands for Junior Secondary School, Year 1. What US citizens would call 7th grade. The above video is help with Nigerian 7th grade math homework. This is why Nigerians laugh when racists in the US try to say that Black kids don't have the aptitude or inclination to do math or CS. The US is uniquely bad at teaching Black kids. No country in the world spends more per Black kid, for worse outcomes. We are really bad at this🤷🏿‍♂️ It's not the kids. It's not the parents. It's the systemic racism.

The June 3rd court ruling against the Fearless Fund’s grant program for Black women is about more than one program—it's a strategic move to undermine diversity initiatives and erase discussions about racial inequities.

The June 3rd court ruling against the Fearless Fund’s grant program for Black women is about more than one program—it's a strategic move to undermine diversity initiatives and erase discussions about racial inequities. This case, and others like it, aim to create a race-blind society, but ignoring the systemic barriers faced by marginalized communities will only perpetuate these inequities. Consider this: between 2009 and 2017, Black women received a mere 0.0006% of VC funding. At that rate, for every billion dollars in VC funds received by others, Black women received $6,000. If that fi...

Ed Sanders: "@StillIRise1963 When I saw P…" -

When I saw Pew’s headline on its website yesterday I gagged. “Most Black Americans Believe Racial Conspiracy Theories About U.S. Institutions” If Pew, which is probably the best organization in the country at presenting its findings on people’s ideas and feelings, is going to call the recognition of obvious systemic and institutional racism “conspiracy theories“ there’s no chance your neighbor is going to reconsider their own views. It’s a disgrace.


“Racism and anti-blackness have always operated and continue to operate under color of law.” We need to confront the fact SYSTEMIC RACISM exists in the courts in order to address it. Blackfullas aren’t locked up at higher rates because we are more *criminal*.


It is such a simple *hot take* by the media to quote elites saying that Indigenous incarceration is high because blackfullas commit more serious crimes! Stop feeding a toxic narrative! The Indigenous incarceration is high because, SYSTEMIC RACISM!


“21% of Republicans say the killings of unarmed Black people by police are a sign of broader problems in how police treat African Americans, while 55% of Republicans said the same in early June.” Who convinced so many Republicans that police violence wasn’t a systemic problem?


@IndigenousX An ex-cop WA says police hounding and jailing innocent Indigenous to meet quotas. Brutality and systemic, shocking racism ingrained in WA Police. That's prob why they didn't worry about chasing up baby's whereabouts.


@Utopiana Considering a baby died in NT this year, whilst police took mum in to custody ... Isn't that indicative of systemic issues worthy of an inquest? Fucking awful.


@Utopiana That is a really tough read. The lack of investment in young Aboriginal children includes the systemic failure to support and protect Aboriginal families and to investigate the tragic deaths of Aboriginal babies. #heartbreaking


Anti-Blackness is pervasive in academia, and physics is no exception. UC Berkeley physicist @CDBrownII details his experiences with interpersonal and systemic anti-Black racism and lays out actions that can start dismantling it


When we say #BlackLivesMatter this is what we’re talking about! We need help to break down systemic racism that continues to exist in Australia. This really is a disgrace and a reflection on how we are devalued in the “lucky country” #AboriginalLivesMatter


Whatever the DEMANDS for change are, they need to address *systemic racism* and *power* if we are serious about decolonising the colony and delivering accoutability. It has to be a collective movement, us against the system, not each other. #4corner


The *assumption of innocence* is now systemically eroded by COPS data systems, when they see a black face you are already under surveillance & likely searched for some sort of “crime”. #4corners

@SteveDoubleW @TaraTomahawk “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” had a profound impact on me in high school. Not because I was learning about the violence and displacement, since I was already familiar, but more so that I realized it was far more systemic and egregious than I’d realized or imagined.


Aboriginal people can fight to remove colonial statues AND fight to stop blak deaths in custody. They are not mutually exclusive in our fight to dismantle white supremacy & systemic racism


We're grieving for the families that have lost their homes and for what we've lost personally in the fires... I'm grieving for the plants, the animals, the birds.” Mogo's scattered Indigenous families are still grieving, six months after the bushfires. dmejiacanales I don’t know who needs to hear this but the police are not the friends of brown folks living in public housing estates.

Quotas of Aboriginal staff, senior staff, board members etc is not THE solutuon.This places stress & onus on Blak people to dismantle white supremacy, systemic & structural racism.They cannot do this is if white ppl do not change their behaviour/attitude/actions

While yes, there is a lot of performative work by businesses & individuals atm, and we need systemic change, I’m not going to forget that Maccas took away the franchises of racist Rob when #TooStrongForYouKaren was brought to their attention. I’m here for it. Keep going.


Fighting bias in tech is more than knowing how to evaluate content we consume. It’s dismantling the industry’s systemic inequity in how content is produced. Hiring & coding practices reflect values. “Do you believe people of color are your customers?“ @IjeomaOluo @safiyanoble


Black lives matter, this includes our blak babies in out of home care! When we are advocating the importance of dismantling systemic racism and capitalism it also includes the process of dismantling the child protection system that does in fact, create greater harm than good.


Systemic racism is acting surprised that your own institution is racist, put on a forum for Black ppl to air grievances, promise all sorts of initiatives around “addressing” racism then 2 weeks later promoting yet another white woman to a leadership position👀🤯


Life as a blak woman Being told to ‘tone it down’ as fragile white people can’t deal with the truth By people who actively uphold systemic racism The reason why you’re speaking up in the first place 🙄

If you marched in the BLM Rallies & returned to your workplaces & are silent about systemic racism against Blak people. You are complicit in upholding racism. You are part of the problem. You are not an ally. Do not match with us again.

If an "inquiry" into the police force finds "systemic racism" yet there is no *accountability* for those who perpetrate it, such as losing their jobs. Then the "inquiry" is a rubber stamp for racism - it doesn't matter how many recommendations you promise to implement.

To say you support MAiD bc you support autonomy also conveniently overlooks its history. It ignores the abuse, coercion & deaths of disabled ppl & elders at the hands of carceral institutions, families & guardians. It dismisses the role systemic racism plays in healthcare.

I don't quite have the words to express myself. But there is something so disturbing in regard to online survival fundraising. Many of us are marginalized people, people who have historically and systemically been harmed by violent systems and institutions of whiteness.

The wicked problem of B(A)ME degree award gaps and systemic racism in our universities

The independent regulator for higher education in England, the Office for Students (OfS), set new national targets in late 2018 to achieve equality of opportunity in higher education by tackling degree award gaps. The sector response to this was to measure degree award gaps between B(A)ME students and white students in their higher education institutions. Analysis of degree award gaps using quantitative methods has revealed an "unexplained gap". We argue that the existence of this "unexplained gap" is evidence of "systemic racism". However, the factors influencing a degree award and their a...

Chatting w/a friend last night, we agreed that one of the biggest scams of the contemporary era is convincing millions of people that they have the exact same mental health struggles (anxiety/depression) for wholly personal, and not systemic/structural, reasons. Good one. 10/10

The Medical Journal of Australia refused to publish an article highlighting systemic racism, based on weak allegations of a potential defamation case. That's erasure. And when we do dare speak out, much like Caitlin Moran did this week (3)

It's a blatant form of discrimination. Disabled ppl w heightened risk will lose their jobs (even MORE than already), stay unemployed (even more), be prosecuted for truancy (even more), drop out of higher ed (even more), and... also die (even more). It's gross systemic ableism

Philosophers need to recognize and take responsibility for the way they not only reproduce systemic ableism, but expand and worsen its effects. 1/18

Perspective | Listen to Black women. They are outraged, tired and they are right.

Youngkin's public health chief wants to investigate whether systemic racism exists. Black women are busy working to dismantle it.

@DjirraVic prioritises advocating for the rights of Aboriginal women, speaking up to keep women's voices and experiences of FV, incarceration, racism, child removal in front of white Aus to achieve systemic change.

I sincerely believe that addressing systemic ableism is the key to our collective futures. When every form of marginalization is meant to disable you so that discarding you is automatically justified, you must take that tool from the oppressor.

What if y'all stopped saying how inspiring disabled people are for overcoming the systemic hurdles you refuse to dismantle

Senators call for exoneration of 12 Indigenous women who endured 'systemic inequality' in Canada's criminal justice system

In a report released Monday, Senators Dawn Anderson, Yvonne Boyer and Kim Pate call for an exoneration of 12 Indigenous women, who they say have endured a pattern of discrimination, inequality and violence within the criminal justice system

**sigh**, oh look, another one. Systemic exclusion of disabled people from employment isn't fixed by the individual supports of NDIS in a few short years! Oh no!

Our public policies systemically underfund disability supports to ensure a life of poverty is inevitable. Our pandemic rhetoric of "living with COVID" without any protections translates to "death by COVID" for those with disabilities. All b/c ableism tells us they're disposable.
