UK’s leader creates anti-racism panel; critics want more

LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will establish a commission to look at racial equality in the U.K.,. The move comes two weeks of protests spurred by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis by police. Johnson says the body will look at “all aspects of inequality — in employment, in health outcomes, in academic and all other walks of life.” Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets across the U.K. since Floyd died on May 25, demanding the U.K. confront its own history of imperialism and racial inequality. Opposition Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy accused the Conservative government of stalling. He said “the time for review is over and the time for action is now.”
