Imarn's article entitled : 'Dont believe in Institutional Racism? Read this’
was published on the 26th December 2020 by British GQ magazine - check out this link for further details...
The Black Community has suffered from Racism, in all its forms, for decades and inspite of the UK's efforts to rectify the problem, we are still dealing with Racism now.
It is time we do something different!
"Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results, is the definition of insanity"
In order to address and tackle racism, first we must understand what it is and what form it takes?
"We can not truly rectify a problem without first, accepting and acknowledging it's existence"

The term 'Institutionalised Racism' was first coined in 1967 by Stokely Carmichael and later expanded upon by Sir William MacPherson, further to the death of Stephen Lawrence.
Despite the above - Why do some individuals and institutions still deny this form of racism, Inspite of the black community, talking about it for decades.

If we do not encourage the younger generations to talk about "all forms of racism" and have honest open conversations about it, we will be doing a huge injustice to our kids, grandkids and future generations to come - who should not have to fight this 400 year old battle.
Be a '2021 changemaker' and help us to break the vicious cycle!

Confidence and self esteem building for 10-25 year olds, specifically targeted for Black and Asian ethnic minorities.
Imarn grew up in southeast London where colloquial slang is the norm for many young black people, however when trying to seek employment or argue ones point, it can be difficult to know how best to present and articulate oneself in a new environment.
Stereotyping is one of the biggest factors that fuel different forms of racism therefore, finding ways to counter those stereotypes is imperative.
The Debating and public speaking classes, provide excellent communication skills, great body language tools, confidence and self esteem building, personal development and provides a safe forum for Black and Asian ethnic minority students to express themselves.
Providing young Black people with the a range of personal development tools which support
employability and confidence
self esteem building,
Inspite of the UK's efforts to combat racism for decades, events in 2020 have cast a spotlight on the continual inequalities and discrimination faced by the Black community.
Recent government statistics show that the biggest difference in employment rate is between white people and ethnic minorities aged 16 to 24 years olds:
58% of White people are employed versus 36% of those with ethnic minority backgrounds.
"The Life Tools" classes help to ensure that the younger generations are given the right tools to thrive throughout society, irrespective of class, race or political ideologies.
'Life tools' are fundamental for ensuring: good decision making/critical thinking, emotional intelligence and coping skills which will ultimately benefit the Black community and the wider community as a whole.
Creative expression is one of the ways that Imarn hopes to raise awareness of Racism, encourage healthy debate and build confidence .
In 2021 Imarn aims to develop and launch a series of unique initiatives - so watch this space for updates.
