European Commission has revealed a spike in anti-Black racism in the European Union. The report, which was published on October 25, 2023, found that anti-Black racism is “widespread” in the EU and that it is “on the rise.”
The report found that anti-Black racism can take many forms, including hate speech, discrimination, and violence. It also found that anti-Black racism is particularly prevalent in areas such as employment, education, and housing.
The report’s findings have been met with concern by anti-racism activists and policymakers alike. Some experts have warned that the rise in anti-Black racism is a “wake-up call” for the EU and that it is a sign that the bloc’s efforts to combat racism have been insufficient.
The European Commission has said that it is committed to combating anti-Black racism and that it will take steps to address the findings of the report. The Commission has said that it will develop a new strategy to combat racism and that it will work with member states to implement the strategy.
The report’s findings are a reminder that anti-Black racism is a serious problem in the European Union. The EU must take steps to address the root causes of anti-Black racism and to ensure that all people are treated with dignity and respect.
