Catalysed by the murder by a police officer of George Floyd, there have been numerous protests around the world and in some cases violence. Some of this violence has been perpetuated by law enforcement, seemingly emboldened in America by a President who seeks to divide the country.

The racism has to stop. I write those five words as a privileged white person who in many ways can’t begin to understand what has been considered “normal” by many a coloured person.
