Patterns of Prejudice wishes to express sympathy for the families, friends and communities of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks, and indeed for the many other people of colour around the world who have suffered at the hands of individual racist police, racist police practices more generally and the systemic racism that runs through the criminal justice systems. We also wish to extend our solidarity with the many thousands who have been moved to protest on streets all over the world in response. 


Patterns of Prejudice has been documenting and analysing all forms of racism, historical and contemporary, throughout the world for over fifty years and have made several articles from the archive available on open access as a resource for those who would like to read more on the subject.
