Why Some Black Brits Are Considering Leaving UK After Election
Boris Johnson’s record on racism has left some Black Brits so afraid for their safety that they are considering leaving the UK should the Conservatives claim victory in Thursday’s election. Racist comments written or signed off by the prime minister include an article published in The Spectator while he was editor, written by columnist Taki Theodoracopulos, that claimed black people have lower IQs. Elsewhere, he penned a column for the Daily Telegraph referring to “watermelon smiles” and “piccaninnies”.

Campaigners urge unity against racism after anti-semitic graffiti
The Hampstead and Belsize Park area woke up to the Star of David alongside the numbers “9 11” spray-painted in red and purple on several premises during the religious festival of Hanukkah, including South Hampstead Synagogue.
The graffiti refers to an anti-semitic conspiracy theory that Jewish people were behind the 2001 terror attacks in the United States.
Police said they are investigating the racially motivated hate crime after receiving reports of the vandalism late Saturday night.
No arrests have been made at the time of writing, but the Metropolitan Police has called for anyone with information to call 101.
The graffiti was seen being removed by council workers from shop windows yesterday afternoon.
David Rosenberg of the Jewish Socialists’ Group condemned the graffiti and said: “Every racist, fascist, and conspiracy theorist will have felt emboldened by the re-election of Boris Johnson’s hard-right Tory government.
“That government will be judged not only on its response to this incident but to how it responds to recent applications by racists and fascists to join the Tories, and what further action they take against Tory election candidates suspended over anti-semitism.
“This year has witnessed sickening attacks on other minorities too. Our strongest defence in 2020 will be through minority communities and all anti-racists giving practical support and solidarity to each other.”
Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) co-convenor Weyman Bennett called for unity and for people to reject racism in communities.
He told the Star: “We condemn any form of anti-semitism, racism and Islamophobia and reject any attempts to sow division between people.
“[SUTR] argues that we need to maximise unity against the growth of the far-right and racism from the government. We understand that unless we have unity to defeat racism, it can only end in tragedy.”
Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn Tulip Siddiq said: “Unbelievable, senseless, disgusting anti-semitism at the heart of our community. We must all stay vigilant in order to continue the fight against this hatred.”
Following the news, campaign group Jewdas warned on Twitter that British Movement, a nazi splinter from the National Front, have been covering the area with “nasty fascist stickers” for the past 18 months.
The incident comes after five people were stabbed at a rabbi’s home in New York during a Hanukkah celebration on Saturday night.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn sent “love and solidarity” to Jewish communities around the world.
He tweeted: “How terrible that Chanukah started with a message of hope and on this last day we face anti-semitic graffiti in London and horrific stabbings at a party in New York. We stand with all our communities facing hate.
“We send love and solidarity to Jewish communities around the world.”
BRITAIN FIRST’S “stunt” declaration that over 5,000 members have joined the Tories shows just how favourably the far-right views the Prime Minister, Unite Against Fascism (UAF) warned yesterday. The far-right hate group claimed their supporters were attracted by Boris Johnson’s “negative attitude towards Islam,” according to the Guardian. Britain First’s spokeswoman Ashlea Simon, who was among senior figures recently investigated by counterterrorism police, said: “We will support a party that is willing to take a firm stance against radical Islam and it looks like the Tories are willing to do that”: here.
A machete-wielding attacker wounded five people attending a Hanukkah celebration on Saturday evening in the Rockland County, New York, hamlet of Monsey, located in the town of Ramapo, 30 miles north of New York City. The attack took place as Hasidic worshipers gathered in the home of their rabbi, Chaim Rottenberg, located next to their synagogue. The perpetrator reportedly entered the residence and began randomly attacking the celebrants, who had gathered on the seventh night of the annual Hannukah observance: here.
