The Board of Deputies has reacted to the “shameful” decision, announced this afternoon, that Show Racism the Red Card would be keeping Ken Loach as a judge for its upcoming School Competition.
Vice President Amanda Bowman said:“That a so-called anti-racist charity would ignore a minority community’s concerns about racism, is both astounding and shameful. The Jewish community will no longer have any confidence in Show Racism the Red Card’s trustees, its CEO, or their ability to show antisemitism the red card.”
You can read a letter here detailing why Ken Loach is a poor choice of judge for an anti-racism competition, which was sent to Show Racism The Red Card in February,
