The UK’s common-sense voice on race

Our beliefs

  • We should treat everyone as an individual worthy of respect regardless of race, religion or the colour of their skin
  • We call this colourblind anti-racism – it is based on freedom and tolerance – and we believe it is the best way to counter prejudice where it does exist
  • Today’s so-called anti-racism sees group identity before it sees a person and risks reinforcing prejudice by dividing us into a world of victims and oppressors
  • Britain is a successful multi-cultural society with a positive story to tell about race relations
  • We won’t benefit from importing divisive political ideas from the US that don’t reflect our history and which undermine our shared values today

“We believe that our common humanity is indivisible.”
