Story

Help fund actions to expose and challenge racism against black staff in Islington Council by caucasian cliques.

Black staff have their potential capped and are hounded and pressured out of the Council. Any blacks that challenge the snow peaked leadership in all departments or the status quo of a dominant caucasian female powerbase are silenced, targeted, and forced out.

We want to have a comission review how blacks are bullied, mistreated, disciplined, stereotyped, victimised, and hounded out of the council. The unions are failing us badly so we need to build a collective powerbase, Unison Reigonal office are a waste of time and will not support you as tour local branch do,

We will pressure for a detailed survey of black staff to identify the problems that they face with the insidious nature of their forced blindness to equality for black staff. The council wants to silence the debate to ensure that the inequality continues. We are also seeking to create pressures on the unions to take action to change what they have witnessed for years.

We are aware that many do not speak up for fear of reprisals and many can not afford to lose their jobs. Countless outspoken blacks have been hounded out and all who participate in the now defunct black fourm are targeted. We have seen how vindictive and malicious some Caucasian cliques in Islington can be.

We are seeking £2 donations to register support so that this crowd funding will register as a petition for change. (You will need to manually type in £2).

A number of African and Caribbean people have been forced out or dismissed from Islington (especially in the children’s services department). These people are isolated and not able to speak up about the historical institutional racism which rewards the cliques and it’s supporters through promotion and awards of employment without interview, bypassing many of the recruitment and selection processes. On the flip side caucasian females undermine all opportunity for black cohesion undermining the black forum (BME Forum), even dismissing its chair. They have a number of employment tribunal cases against them.

There are a number of tribunal cases that have been running in isolation and these same council officers act recklessly and vindictively with public money.** Their vindictiveness will mean that in one case they will cost the public purse up to £200,000 (tribunal costs and council money). These individuals should be held accountable for their disregard and contempt for the public purse. We call for lobbying to make public officers financially liable for business decisions that cost the joint public purse (Through failing to exercise public purse loss mitigation).

Help fund challenging covert racism against black leaders in Islington engineered by caucasian cliques. Speak up and sign our pettition (You can donate anonimously as we know they victimise).

We have action and demonstration days planned for early next year.

If you are called to any investigation meeting your words will be used to make additional charges to dismiss you. So; answer NO COMMENT, and with one word answers. Do not elaborate on answers. Do not volunteer any information. Remember witnesses will be watched and intimidated.

Ongoing court cases;

**Despite a judge instructing Islington Council to attempt to settle one dispute and save the tax payer money, they have vindictively flat out refused to enter into any settlement negotiations, or loss minimalisation. To defend the case it is estimated to cost Islington up to £50,000 and the cost to the public of running a tribunal case for 10-15 days as is expected in one case costs upwards of some £150,000 of tax payers money. These costs are if they win the case against them. (The costs increase substantially if they lose. The public purse loses no matter what).

The council officers have a blatant disregard for tax payers money and we will be lobbying for them to be made personally liable for the costs to the public purse. Their negligent actions are nothing short of a dereliction of duty to the public purse.

The center of this case is that of racism. A black man has claimed that a group of predominantly caucasian women have acted maliciously against him, manipulating support from a few non-caucasians. He outlined that the borough treats people less favorably the darker their skin is. In his attempt to explain to them the differing levels of discrimination that people of darker skin face, LBI officers set upon this explaination of differentiation as racist. LBI caucasian officers in their racial ignorance decide that to differentiate some caucasians (white skinned people) as invisible minorities is racist. People with white and whiter skins are treated far better and achieve better outcomes. The boroughs public records confirm this. A white skinned Greek woman called a man black Caribbean when he is black English yet she received no sanctions. The black man has however been dismissed for calling her a White Greek woman the borough itself classifies the Greek woman as “White other” in its ethnic monitoring. The black man outlined that the colour bias in Islington effects people who are visibly identifiable as black. This visible distinction is at the center of bias in the borough. Islington still has no black representation at senior director level.

There is an expectation to remain colour blind when the discrimination is targeted at black people. The mere mentioning of this racism is an offense in their eyes, yet they still fail to offer racial induction or any form of race discrimination training for staff. Numbers of black staff have been pushed out or dismissed from the council and restructuring has been a major tool for this. (Through terminating contracts or pressuring staff to leave). We are collecting names of any black staff that have any similar or shared experiences with LBI. Please contact us at isliiblack@gmail.com. We are collecting evidence of these cases. It’s time that we have training to sensitize staff to the do’s and don’ts of equalities.

The youth offending service is failing our young people.

Caucasian female staff afraid of the young people they are supposed to work with and rehabilitate. In the targeted support section, staff are constantly either prematurely closing cases or continually skipping black young men’s cases by saying that the young people wouldn’t engage with voluntary interventions. Instead the Caucasian women are left unchallenged and even praised for working substantially with predominantly Caucasian young women. They fail to work with black youth to enforce boundaries or follow up on challenging negative patterns of behavior. The whole dynamic of fear and racism isn’t even allowed to be discussed and therefore the unequal treatment and outcomes for black young people continues unabated.

It’s time to take a stand and change the pattern of young lives being destroyed, and challenge the professionals who should be working to change these imbalances in outcomes. We cannot continue to allow working classed and black young men to kill each other while we fail to look at the race and class dynamic of their treatment.

We will be donated to groups making a difference to black and working class young people’s lives.

If you want to be a part of a movement to change please message us.

We have to talk openly about the issues in order to make any real change.

    Our planned march and demonstration for February has had to be postponed. We have had three more action group meetings and agreed an action plan for fighting the constant blatant racism. We have a survey of black staff circulating. So encourage your colleagues to complete it. The council still refuse to talk to black staff. The new day for the demonstration will be coordinated by internal events. Talk to your link person to be an active part. We will change their blind racist actions.

    During this festive season it’s easy to get caught up in the spirit of fun and happiness. We would like you to spare a thought for all the black staff who have been subjected to Islington’s version of equality for some. As black staff in Islington we have to be whitewashed to be accepted”. ‘They only accept us if we speak like them, look like them, date or marry them,. We have to devalue race equality or subscribe to the lie that everything is equal in Islington.’ (Black staff still suffering in silence).. please continue to share.

    Black staff are treated unfairly by some managers. Senior managers are aware of discrimination towards BAME staff but as long as that manager is meeting the council's objectives, they don't care.

    The Caucasian directors are doing their best to detract from open discussion or training in anti racism. They don’t understand; Racism, Racialism, Racial Discrimination, Communalism...
