@PriyamvadaGopal They been #gaslighting us with statistics showing 0.02% improvement, getting a #Diversity Award fancy venue, picture in press. All the while there is no perceptible change in our lived experience because they own what is ‘knowledge’ & it ain’t lived #BAME experience. @CIPD_Policy
@PriyamvadaGopal First our individual lived experiences are ignored, fragmented into individualised experiences not a whole systemised thing so we doubt our own eyes & ears, sanity. We becme invisible then dehumanised in2 statistics with no names 2save them looking in2 our eyes & seeing our pain.

He went to Oxford and met his wife. He still wasn’t sure what he wanted to do but knew it would be something tech! He started working at Andersen! 👨🏾‍💻

Today is #WorldKidneyDay, so here is a thread about living on #dialysis & #OrganDonation. My name is Belinda Otas. I’m #African. I’m #Nigerian. I'm #Benin. I’m #British & I’m #Black. Beyond the nationalities or passports with my name, I also believe in our shared humanity.
I was 16, when I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRF.) I had no idea what was happening to me because at the time, it made no sense. However, I remember the pain of that period like noonday. I lived on dialysis until i was 22. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
It took over my teenage years. I don’t remember having much of a life as a teenager because dialysis was 3x a week & every session was 4hrs. Add the time it takes to recover from being exhausted by the process, my day was pretty much over. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth

A quick THREAD on the contradictions of the home office and @sajidjavid over the stripping of #ShamimaBegum's British citizenship.
It's a MUST READ to see just how @theresa_may's old department's #hostileenvironment appears to discriminate against BAME people... 1/n
So currently there are international laws which state that when a citizen commits a crime in a foreign country, that country has the right to deport the person to their home country. This is accepted, and not a contentious issue. 2/15
In fact, the British gov't loves using these powers.
It regularly deports British residents of Caribbean descent. People who moved to Britain as toddlers and have British kids have been taken away from their families and sent 'back' to the Caribbean. 3/15
