Dear David Gilmore, Head of Communications and Engagement, Equality Challenge Unit,
Thank you for your reply.
Congratulations on your appointment. I read about you in this weeks Voice newspaper on page six (6).
I have been reading about the Race Equality Charter Mark on the Equality Challenge Unit website.
Please could you help me to find the list of Races that are recognised in the Race Equality Charter Mark. I have attached some illustrated British Race and Ethnicity Codes as used in the British Police and the British Civil Services.
"At ECU, I manage a small team of three other staff and our work focusses on supporting staff in universities who work within equality and diversity."
How will the Race Equality Charter Mark be used to foster good relations between people of different Races?
Many British public authorities appear to be failing the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act. This is a direct threat to Equality, Rights and Decency in Britain.
There appears to be a Race missing in all the British public authorities reports that are supposed to be addressing the problem of Race Relations.
If the British public authorities do not recognise or use the series of racial classifications set out by the British Police, what series of Race classifications should the British public authorities be using?
How is it possible for the British public authorities to have "due regard" for the protected groups as the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010) requires if the British public authorities do not use any Racial classifications?
I fail to see how the British public authorities can have "due regard" for Race Relations without having any Racial monitoring data and an effective Race Relations policy.
It appears that the British public authorities have 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.
You, David Gilmore, should know about the need to take Racial obligations under the Equality Act very seriously. No Racial data in the British public authorities 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 international relations, like the IC1 Germans and the IC2 Greeks in the European Union, and problems closer to home like 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 and the Race Equality Charter Mark
Please could you arrange for the person/s responsible for Diversity, Equality, Rights and Decency at the Equality Challenge Unit to send me the full the list of Races that are recognised in the Race Equality Charter Mark.
Please could you send me the contact email for the person responsible for Diversity, Equality, Rights and Decency in the Equality Challenge Unit.
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 the British public authorities is impacting policy in the British public authorities and impacting the quality of the decisions being made in the British public authorities.
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 the British public authorities and that this dreadful inequality is impacting relations between other Races and causing the British public authorities unknown problems.
I am concerned that poor management of Race Relations in the British public authorities is resulting in Racially Aggravated Gross Misconduct which is making the British public authorities not fit for purpose.
I look forward to a full reply on this very serious issue.

Just a quick email following your phone call requesting more information on my role.
I joined the Equality Challenge Unit last month on a 6-month interim basis, covering a career break being taken by the permanent post-holder, Chris Hall. Prior to joining ECU, I worked as Head of Communications for the National Union of Students, where I’d been employed for nine years.
At ECU, I manage a small team of three other staff and our work focusses on supporting staff in universities who work within equality and diversity. I have one team member who oversees university liaison, one who manages our digital output and a new member of staff who manages the publication process.
Hope this helps. I’ve not been able to view the article featured in The Voice as I can’t seem to find it online, but will try and seek it out.
