The last couples of weeks have been amped up with political warfare, societal outrage and an endless chant for change around the world, but for black people’s rights in particular. Ministers who have commented on the matter have been under public scrutiny, for insulting the black lives matter movement because of their statements.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock was one of the crucified as his statements about racism and the political unrest in the UK belittled the intensity of racial prejudice in the constituents, as it is experienced by people of colour.

“I think, thankfully, this is all based in response to events in America rather than here, but we also must continue the drive here for tolerance and genuine equality of opportunity,” said Mr Hancock, his statements not only downplayed the validity of the black lives matter movement but he belittled its relevance as it pertains to black people within the UK.

Mr Hancock continued to claim that the UK is not racist, after being asked in an interview with Skynews about whether it is, his response was  “I don’t, but I do think there’s injustice that needs to be tackled and I’ve spent my political life fighting for equality”.

The minister simply missed the point according to certain individuals and has since received a heap load of backlash in response to him denying the presence of racism within the UK.
