Racial inequalities in policing 22 years after Macpherson report, say MPs

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Racial inequalities in policing 22 years after Macpherson report, say MPs” – below is their description.

Policing is still riddled with racial disparities, say MPs – more than two decades after the Macpherson report into the Stephen Lawrence murder exposed the extent of “institutional racism” in the police.

The Home Affairs select committee says that since then the police have failed to reform themselves and governments on all sides have not done enough to tackle racial injustice either.

Police leaders said the slow pace of change was of “deep regret” – promising to do better.
