Stormzy has released a new statement of intent, pledging 10 million pounds to fighting racial inequality

Stormzy has released a new statement of intent, pledging a whopping 10 million pounds to fighting racial inequality.

The funds will be released over a ten year period, going to organisations, charities and movements that are committed to the cause.

Stormzy explains: “The uncomfortable truth that our country continuously fails to recognise and admit, is that black people in the UK have been at a constant disadvantage in every aspect of life - simply due to the colour of our skin. 

"I’m lucky enough to be in the position I’m in and I’ve heard people often dismiss the idea of racism existing in Britain by saying “if the country’s so racist how have you become a success?!” and I reject that with this: I am not the UK’s shining example of what supposedly happens when a black person works hard. There are millions of us. We are not far and few. 

"We have to fight against the odds of a racist system stacked against us and designed for us to fail from before we are even born. Black people have been playing on an uneven field for far too long and this pledge is a continuation in the fight to finally try and even it.”

Keep an eye out for more information soon.
