Inequality at Camden Council
A panel of three, including one judge, after listening seven days of testimony and evidence from witnesses and defendants, concluded two senior managers in Camden Council were guilty of racial discrimination. Mike Cooke, Chief Exec of Camden in 2013 has decided he knows better than the judges and thinks it’s better to blame procedure. If I change interview scores and cheat to make sure a white employee gets a job ahead of a black employee, I’m guilty of racial discrimination. If I then lie about it under oath, as the judges found these individuals did, I’m guilty of perjury. And if my employers found out, I would be SACKED. In the very least, I would be investigated and disciplined. The seniors involved are not facing these consequences. White privilege in all its glory. Camden Council is not a place for minorities.
