British police reform is forcing police to take classes on “black history” and “anti-racism” as officials pressure more officers to identify as “wake”.
British officials appear not to have been sufficiently progressive as British police announced on Tuesday a plan of action that will face mandatory lectures such as “Black History” and “Anti-Racism” by officers across England and Wales. Low racial disparities affecting African ancestry.

While Johnson expressed how eager she was for police to identify as “wake up,” what she was not known to be very enthusiastic about was the refusal by commissioners of institutional racism within military forces across Britain.

This move was largely defended by Johnson, who argued that the British military needed to build relationships with the so-called “BAME” (Black, Asian and Minority) communities.
In December of last year, Prime Minister Johnson said that “in order to combat racism, we must accept institutional racism.” “If the idea is to win the trust of the black community, the police should start by recognizing both historical and current expressions of racism in the police force.”
