Statement on racism against England football players

The Jewish Council for Racial Equality (JCORE) shares the disgust of many over the racist abuse directed at the black English football players.

It demonstrates, as if we needed any more proof, how the persistence of racism continues to blight our country. Recent figures have shown how racist incidents have increased, and more than a year after the murder of George Floyd we must redouble our efforts to combat racism in all its forms both in social media and in many of our institutions.
