Storyline

Black people are nine times more likely to face police Stop and Search than white people. Black women are twice as likely as white women, and black men are 3.3 times as likely than white men, to die from Covid-19 in the UK. Britain was the leading slaver nation, carrying 40% of all Africans transported between 1761 and 1807. What do all these facts have in common? Racism is at the root. 'Is the UK innocent?' explores the relationship between the transatlantic trade of enslaved African people between the 1600s to 1800s and racism today in the UK. Through interviews with anti-racism activists in South East London this documentary asks what the relationship is between Britain's role in the enslavement of over 12m free African people and the circumstances in which today's Black people find themselves in the UK.

oh gawd. clearly some people, a lot in fact, need a factual history lesson, not more of this fabricated fluff.

Egypt? rome? both of which were comprised of africans (voluntary enlistments, enslaved spoils, bought and sold by their own people), the conquering and enslaving of white european and britain native people ring any bells? and how about the tens of millions of whites that were stolen and/or falsely imprisoned and/or indentured to the new world and/or australia? on and on. the fact is no skin color is exclusive or immune to either side of the "issue". the fact is, this is not an issue but for-profit propagation of antiewhite racizm - its a trillion dollar business today.

bottom line - The First 48 + Sir Maejor Page + Buffalo Soldiers - thats all anyone need know about "africa" america.
