Subject: King’s College London Race Relations Internal Review FOI Request: Clarification
Date: Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:44:18 +0100
Dear Wayne Elliott, Wayne Elliott, Legal Compliance Co-Ordinator,
Thank you for your reply.
"we require clarification from you of your meaning of the term ‘black people’"
Please look at the Police Codes for clarification.
If King’s College London does not recognise or use the series of race classifications set out by the British Police, what series of Race classifications does King’s College London use?
How is it possible for King’s College London to have "due regard" for the protected groups as the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010) requires if King’s College London does not use any Racial classifications?
I fail to see how King’s College London can have "due regard" for Race Relations without having any Racial monitoring data and a Race Relations policy.
It appears that King’s College London has made no effort to record, monitor and report on the difference between the IC1 White North European Race (Caucasoid) and the IC2 Dark South European Race (Melanochroid). It is possible that there could be horrific inequalities between the IC1 White North European Race (Caucasoid) and the IC2 Dark South European Race (Melanochroid) that have not been reported due to this Racially Aggravated Negligence.
May I remind you of the need to take your obligations under the Equality Act very seriously. No Racial data in King’s College London reports is evidence of Racially Aggravated Gross Misconduct that is resulting in Racially Aggravated Disorderly Behavior.
A survey should be done immediately to find out what is going on between the European Races and how this Racially Aggravated Negligence is impacting community cohesion.
The Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010) requires public authorities to have ‘due regard’ to the need to:
1. Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Act.
2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
3. Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it.
I am concerned about the management of European Race Relations and not about Ethnicity Relations or Diversity Relations.
Race a Protected Characteristic
As you probably know Race is one of the "Protected Characteristics" in the Equality Act 2010.
Refers to the protected characteristic of Race. It refers to a group of people defined by their race, colour, and nationality (including citizenship) ethnic or national origins.
Note 1: http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/private-and-public-sector-guidance/guidance-all/protected-characteristics
Race as defined by the British Police
White - North European / White European
White - South European / Dark European
Asian (in the UK Asian refers to people from the Indian subcontinent like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal)
Chinese, Japanese, or other South East Asian
Arabic or North African / Middle Eastern / Mixed Race
Note 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IC_codes#cite_note-mpabriefing-2
Please follow these links to understand the Official British Government codification of the differences between Race and Ethnicity.
Race not to be confused with Ethnicity
I have given the link to the Ethnicity Data Standard as specified by the Information Standards Board to make it clear that I am not asking for Ethnicity information.
Failure to manage Race Relations effectively results in the failure to address the problem of Racism.
Race Relations Internal Review Requested - Danger of Racism
Please could you send me the email contact details of the person responsible for equalities in King’s College London.
It is very clear that the Police recognise the Racial difference between the IC1 White North European (Caucasoid) and the IC2 Dark South European Races (Melanochroid) and record and use this data for Race Relations purposes.
I am horrified that no effort is being made apparently to achieve European Race Equality. It is possible that the poor management of Race and Ethnicity in King’s College London is impacting policy in King’s College London and impacting the decisions being made in King’s College London.
It is possible that there are poor Race Relations between the IC1 White North European Race (Caucasoid) and the IC2 Dark South European Race (Melanochroid) in King’s College London and that this dreadful inequality is impacting relations between other Races and causing King’s College London unknown problems.
I am concerned that poor management of Race Relations in King’s College London is resulting in Racially Aggravated Gross Misconduct which is making King’s College London not fit for purpose.
Please process this request for information as an Internal Review.
I look forward to a full reply on this very serious issue.
