Black people suffer most racism, much of it below radar

Black children had bananas thrown at them as they walked with their father, and a black woman was singled out by gardaí to produce her ID on a cross-border bus, a conference has been told.

These were among examples of the “everyday racism” black Africans experience,said Dr Lucy Michael of the University of Ulster. She said black Africans suffered the most sustained racism here and the impact on children was the most worrying aspect because, perhaps unlike their parents, they would be less able to rationalise the abuse.
