"Writer and broadcaster Afua Hirsch speaks about how modern Britain was built on hundreds of years of oppression in the form of the British Empire. Hirsch calls for Britain to recognise its dark colonial history–widespread violence, displacement and cultural erasure–which has been omitted from the British national narrative that sees Britishness as synonymous with decency and civilisation. She speaks of the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on BAME people, and the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police in America and notices how, in this moment, people are protesting the broken system that disregards black lives, creates unliveable living standards, and imprisons black people disproportionately. The system isn't broken. It was built this way."
