Last quote by Afua Hirsch

So many reports have said the same thing about addressing racism and unfairness in Britain – and far too little has changed. I’ve learned a lot about the history of racism in Britain lately. The question I keep asking – reading Charles Dickens’ jokes about “niggers”, Winston Churchill’s views of the British as “a higher-grade race”, or the widespread experience of being beaten to a pulp by the police in the 1970s – is when was the moment that Britain changed?feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Afua Hirsch came from an article called Don’t lock up young offenders, send them to the top boarding schools instead: “Placing at-risk children in custody doesn’t work. They need the same educational support as their richer peers. Not long ago, driving through a Warwickshire town looking for a residential school, of a kind, I drove past a group of pupils walking in a crocodile. The uniforms caught my attention – the girls’ skirts looked unusually long, flapping around the ankles, an eccentricity denoting privilege. The boys were dressed in suits, and they were accompanied by a master in long robes.”.
