Minorities suffer 'everyday racism,' Race Council Cymru report finds


Racism in Wales is under reported, according to a study by a race watchdog.

Race Council Cymru said many black and minority ethnic people were resigned to accepting racism and changed their own behaviour to try to deal with it.

Language barriers, fear of reprisals and a lack of trust in the police were all reasons given for not speaking out, the report found.

Around 4% of Wales' three million population is from an ethnic minority background.

Report author Prof Heaven Crawley told Peter Johnson about what her study found.
