Mike Katz of the Jewish Labour Movement is shown to be wrong once again.
After he tweeted a link to an article he had written, saying Keir Starmer had “stood up” to “racists” in the Labour Party, Twitter added “context” pointing out that a report for Labour by Martin Forde KC had shown that anti-black, anti-GRT and Islamophobic racism had been allowed to flourish within the party – and Labour had not engaged with him about it.
And then – on the same day (May 19, 2023), Channel 4 News reported that black Labour MPs had written to Starmer, demanding – well, see for yourself:
Take a look at what these black Labour MPs had to say:
"Despite our Party’s claims to be anti-racist […] we, our members and supporters are losing faith in the ability and commitment of this leadership to tackle the issues raised in the Forde report, and we demand urgent action,” the letter reads.

That should stay as a complete refutation of Katz’s claim.
The damning part is in the report, when we’re told none of those who wrote to Starmer wanted to be interviewed on television, because they fear that he would expel them from the party in response.
That would be racist in itself.
And no wonder, when one considers this comment from a person This Writer knows personally – and I believe every word she wrote here:
Yup. The worst anti-Black racism I’ve faced has come from Labour Centrists.
Including being banned from giving the Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture during Black History Month by a bunch of white guardian hacks led by mega-creeper N*ck C*hen. https://t.co/84JVWCt5s3

Put it altogether and the evidence makes a monkey of Mike Katz.
There is more, though! Even though it’s not entirely relevant to the above, let’s pile on the agony for the JLM chairman:
CORRECTION:@Keir_Starmer has lied his way into the leadership job, he's lied about renationalisation, student grants, our NHS & he changes his missions from one day to next

Keith Starmer has expelled more Jews than any previous Labour leader in order to placate supporters of apartheid Israel. He's also allowed Islamophobia and anti-black racism to flourish because Muslims and black people don't count.https://t.co/aMYsdyX1PN https://t.co/UyAF0dyR5X pic.twitter.com/0Vl1MGJu8h

There is clearly a wealth of evidence showing not only that racism is rampant in the Labour Party, but that Keir Starmer has done nothing whatsoever to put a stop to it.
Now that this has been pointed out, both to him and to Katz, do you think they’ll do anything about it?
Neither do I – although I reckon some black Labour MPs will be on their way out the door soon.
