What to Do About Racist Behaviour?

Racist Behaviour Racist Neighbour

It can be incredibly distressing if you are on the receiving end of any kind of racism, especially from neighbours. Thankfully, reported racist behaviour is quite rare in the UK and there are stringent laws in place to ensure that it stays that way.

What’s Considered to be Racist Behaviour?

If you’re a victim of racism or racist behaviour, it means you’ve been treated differently by your neighbours by virtue of your race, colour, nationality, citizenship, or ethnic or national origins. You can even suffer from racial discrimination just because somebody thinks you are a certain race or nationality, even though you’re not. The legal system is a little confusing when it comes to judging what counts as ‘racial’ discrimination, and what’s discrimination due to religious belief. There have been legal cases identifying Romany Gypsies, Jewish people, Sikhs and Irish Travellers as a race, yet Rastafarians and Muslims can complain about discrimination due to religious belief.The kind of racist behaviour you might experience from neighbours could include harassment or intimidation by them, members of their family, their friends or visitors to their home. It includes any type of discrimination against you that’s based on your colour or race.

Racial harassment is anything unwelcome or hostile that happens just because of someone's race, including physical and verbal threats and violence.

Racist Behaviour when you’re Looking for a Home

When you’re looking for somewhere to live, the law ensures that you can’t be refused a home because of your race. It’s illegal for private and social landlords to treat you differently whether favouring another person on a social housing waiting list, refusing to rent to you, or treating you differently once you’ve moved in. A private seller is not allowed to refuse to sell you a property on the grounds of your race either.

Racist Behaviour Once You’ve Moved In

At first, you might not be sure whether you’re actually being discriminated against anyway. It could just be ‘funny looks’ or you could think you’re overhearing people talking about you. Perhaps you get the silent treatment from the locals and you can’t quite put your finger on it?

People can sometimes be suspicious of a new neighbour and so you could try to nip any tensions in the bud by attempting to befriend new neighbours, inviting them round for a cuppa, saying hello at the local shop or school gates. You might find that you were being over sensitive after all and the problem’s solved.

Unfortunately, life’s not always that easy, and sometimes people can be ignorant enough to get involved in racist behaviour against you. Start taking note of specific incidents, what happened, when and where, how often the racism happens, how it affected you and anyone else. If you can establish that the harassment is racially motivated then you may have grounds to make a complaint. If you’re in social housing, most local authorities and housing associations have policies in place to deal with accusations of racist behaviour, which include mediation to start with, but could result in an Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO), an Injunction or even eviction. If you own your property your first port of call should be your local police.

Racial Victimisation

If you are forced to make a complaint about any kind of racial discrimination, you shouldn’t be victimised because of it, or treated differently. If things do start to become difficult for you where you live and your neighbours are behaving badly, you could be entitled to get help with any bullying, harassment or worse. Victimising someone who has made a complaint about racism is illegal in itself, and it’s also possible to get protection from discrimination if you’re simply helping another person make a complaint about discrimination, by giving evidence in court for example.

Unusual Cases

A woman from Suffolk was recently accused of racial harassment when she placed an old-fashioned golliwog in her front window. Although the charges were eventually dropped due to insufficient evidence, the woman was arrested after a black neighbour complained that seeing the doll had offended her and her family. Prosecutors said that in order to establish that an offence had been committed, they would have had to prove that the doll had been placed there deliberately by the accused woman, who was alleging that a family member had inadvertently left it there.

If they had been able to prove this, however, it would technically have been possible to convict her of racially aggravated harassment, causing alarm and/or distress.

Being racially abused by my neighbours being called derogatory names, threats of physical harm, and harassment.I reported it to both the council and the police but because I am white and they are black it seems no action has been taken and behaviour continues. Even accused me of being a racist because I’ve complained about their music which is on until two or 3 am with bongos and screaming into a microphone but apparently I am the one who is racist because I’ve reported the noise?You couldn’t make this up. It is so bad that I’m moving house.

Since moving into our Cottage on Christmas Eve 2019 our neighbour has been making our stay untenable and unbearable. For the past 15 months, she has been making inflammatory & untoward remarks in the neighbourhood about us. Several of the neighbours when passing our Cottage would stop & exchange pleasantries. Since her nuisance started most now seldom speak to us. Whilst this is something which has not affected our stay at the Cottage, my neighbours continued slander has. We regularly attend Church, several Senior Army Officers’ with who I have served attend Church & reside in the neighbourhood. My wife recently when talking to a friend from Church warned that our neighbour was making unwarranted remarks about us especially me – I am the only coloured & Jewish person in the neighbourhood. Until the Pandemic struck, both my wife & I worked long days…for me a daily commute to Town & my wife, to the NHS Hospital Swindon. Since the enforcement of the pandemic restrictions, I have been working from home except when face-to-face meetings require me to travel. My wife throughout the pandemic has continued to work in the Community & NHS Hospital. We have never approached nor confronted our neighbour regarding her innuendos, she has also placed notes through our letterbox; one such note stated “…people like us are not welcomed in this neighbourhood…”. I was astounded to read its contents and destroyed the note. We never sent a rebuttal or questioned her of the note’s unsavoury contents. A second note, which I have kept, where the neighbour admits to eavesdropping when my wife & I are having private conversations in the garden. This is very unneighbourly & rather alarming that our neighbour purposefully eavesdrops in our private/intimate conversations. She habitually repeats our private conversations in the neighbourhood. This is very disturbing & distasteful. I engaged at great cost a Lawyer to stop my neighbour from the continued unwarranted barrage of defamatory remarks but alas, the neighbour completely disregards my Lawyers letters. My neighbour continues to damage my reputation for which I am unable to do anything...her racist behaviour is distasteful & believe my neighbour to be an uneducated, sad & lonely individual seeking attention...what an awful person! I reported this awful sad, lonely neighbour to the Police, as a last resort, alas, the Police whilst acknowledging my complaint have done nothing...we are now forced to move away from our Cottage.

I came on this site to see if I could get any advice, my neighbour is being racially abused by another neighbour, it's been reported, I've spoken to police, council and our MP, but she no longer feels safe in her own home so is applying for emergency housing. Her family have lived there 12 years. I have lived there 2 and I cannot believe what I have seen. Her health and her families safety come first, but I am angry at the lack of action against the perpetrators. I am ashamed to be white English. To the Romanian lady saying she bought a house in a council estate, I am sorry to say, I live on a council estate and I can agree there seems to be an underbelly of socially inept, ignorant people in these places. They are a hot bed of rascism and alcoholism and abuse, obviously not all, but I live in Norris Green, Liverpool and it is the case. Most white English live on benefits and feel entitled. They cannot understand how someone from another country can get a job, work hard and buy a house or a car. Yet, if they worked they could do the same. I apologise to everyone here for the animalistic behaviour of some horrible white English people. I am not like them. I like to thi k they are a minority but it seems not. Or if they are, they live in groups. Peace be with you all. X

Hi, Last year me and my husband, both Romanians, bought a lovely house in a council area houses. From day 1 we heard talking about us, literally while moving, we not even had a word with them before. Time passed and we were busy enough working long shifts from home, and doing small renovations in our free time. The kids from the area ( loads of kids from small age to 10-11) in first few weeks after moving , throwed with eggs in our cars and house windows, than with mud in the back windows, than.with stones, and then started to play ball in the outside wall(aka living room wall) with a golf ball?!? Few times went outside and explained them that is not nice to play ball in my living room wall as I live there and working from home and specially with a golf ball. All the time politely and calm, not even raised the voice...and now... because we told them not to play ball in the wall we started to receive 'the look' and we could hear them again calling us names and swearing us. As we are working both from home, both our cars are almost all time parked in front of the house, in a designed car parking area, and things started to happen. My husband's rear wiper car was took off and broke; after I've washed my car, next day, the top was full of mustard,mayo and bacon...and yesterday my husband's car was vandalized with fence paint. Most of my lady neighbors were home, outside having a daily chit chat - kids all around in the area, all going back and forwards around the car while I was vacuuming inside the car that was vandalised; could hear them laughing and their comments. At one point after I finished vacuuming wanted to.wash it a bit too, when I've seen the fence paint on my white car over the front....I usually don't confront people but this time, went to ask, as they were all this time out, if they saw any of their kids playing with paint as someone just throw paint on my car while vacuuming inside and immediately 2 of the so called ladies started to scream that wasn't them, call me names and saying f***ing Romanians, go back from where you camed, if you had money to buy the house, paint your car...and they didn't stopped for at least 2 hours mocking me...swearing,even kids calling me names and trying to intimidate me. When finally realized it's me against them, they see us as an intruder in this community of them,it was too late, they literally started to talk loud,scream and do a show on the street. I'm thinking of putting a complain about it, but I'm too afraid to do so... Besides I'm stressed, terrified now, I'm also afraid to go outside :( Everytime I've done garden work I could hear them talking about us, and swearing. Tomorrow cctv cameras will be installed and hopefully they will leave us alone. Unfortunately police is useless, they still think they can sort out these type of situation just talking with them :(

Everyone keeps talking about being racist. I have lived in my home for 5 years and two of those years have been hell. There's a ratchet woman that lives next door with her horrible children, they constantly harass anyone that is white. If we say anything about it they call us racist. They only target white people. They think when black people harass white people, it is not racist or a problem. The police stated that we should leave.

Hello, I have lived at my residence for many many years have had a very good repo with all my neighbors, last year one of my neighbors accused us of doing something which in the many years that we have live here have never done never done, we asked why they would say that, they stated someone told them, but they would not say who so that we could comfort them, from that point arguments occurred about 3x, that was last year around April, recently every time we came out of ours house the neighbor stated with “Racial Slurrs” number 1 we are too old for this and should not have to endure situations like this, to me it is just plan ignorance to do something like this. The last thing the neighbor said was that “Our time is coming”, which to me is a threat. I am a Law Abiding Citizen, pay taxes, don’t live of the government, we don’t look for trouble however, we now feel that we will have to defend ourselves, we don’t condon violence but I feel that it could result to that. At this point it just makes me sick to even think about it or everytime we step outside what to expect. I don’t want to sell my house I like where I am at, Also, we have went to file a police complaint so it is on record. Another over the years these were our favorite neighbors we use exchange gifts, invite to parties everything, cooked, spend the day together you name it we did it. They really have shown that they are truly racist the true colors came out. Thanks for listening

Hi, I really sympathise with all the comments. Being British Chinese means I get to see the worse in people. In all instances of moving house, it has always been white English people behaving appallingly and in a racist manner towards my family. Whilst sitting in the garden, I don't even get any peace as their children kick the ball at the fence and call me names like 'chink'. We have had to deal with noisy neighbours having parties all night and thinking it is perfectly acceptable. Finally we have moved to a detached house, and although not perfect it allows some breathing space. Good luck

I live in a shared house and mybother two housemates know that I am a Muslim. They constantly talk loudly in a not ao normal way for me to hear their words. They trash talk my ethnicity and curse my religion and its figures. When Iwalk out they smile at me and when I go back to my room they start calling muslims and people with my ethnicities with nasty names. Thus is torture and a loop hole in the law that they are exploiting. I'm a minority in the country and also in the home.

We have a neighbor that live across the hall from us.We have a ring doorbell.The woman in the apartment has constantly flipped off our doorbell.Cussing and even videotaping it with her cellphone.She claims to have PSTD.What makes her behavior odd is there are 12 apartments in our building four on each floor.There are four ring doorbells in our building. Two on our floor and two below us. This neighbor passes four ring doorbells but only has issue with ours. She cusses, dances and acts like a monkey, video tapes it.She’s even resorted to teaching her daughter how to say ,”n***er” on camera.At one point we thought we had resolved this issue she had it’s the camera.Somehow we have not she’s still pissed at only our camera.When we see her she acts like she’s an innocent victim.We have called the police and filed. Complaint against her and her sister in law.Our apartment complex doesn’t want to be involved.We no longer try to be cordial or polite, we have basically resorted to ignoring her behavior. We still can’t figure out why she’s still being nasty towards us.

My mom lives next door to a Scottish lady who causes her non stop problems for 12years (making my mom leave her home to be away of the ongoing problems) This lady in question has called my mom a lot of racist names to name few monkey, Devil, too dark, Halloween clothes). My Mom is 55 years from black decent. the lady was asked by police what her problem is with my mom causing her to constantly harass and trouble my mom, she said “nothing”. I had to install cctv so I could capture The stuff she does as she used to use my moms garden as a dump area, throwing alcohol cans, her household rubbish and so on. One day cctv caught Her out throwing dirty poo nappy into my moms garden, she took my moms whole private back garden fence down, her son broke my moms front gate, her kids kick Their balls at our fence, Also towards my mom or her visitors. Non stop problems, she is council tenant and my mom is private landlord, she has made comments that she wants my mom to move out, what help is available? The lack of support from the council and police is disappointing even with a lot of evidence provided they seem to let her get away with this behaviour. For the past two years I live with my mom With my three kids (age 1,2,3) my kids have also been a victim. I’m heavily pregnant at the moment and feel very hopeless.. It got to the point we can’t go outside without some sort of harassment from the lady. Should my mom sell her house?

Hi, We have lived at this property in Greenwich Borough for last 10 years and I am sad to say we have been racially abused and harassed by our neighbours. From the day we moved into the property our neighbour did not like us for us being brown skin. Anytime we would try to do diy or fix this old property during the permitted times she would shout abuse over the wall. On one ocassion on a sunny summer day when we were in our front garden , husband and wife started arguing with us by saying we make too much noise and got so aggressive that he came over towards us saying "You f**** p****". Police were called and they have suggested we can arrest the person. We have thought he is an old person and giving him causion will make them understand the situation. But i would say people think they beling to this country more than you do or you ever will. This abuse continued over the years during birth of our two childred and loss of a young brother in law. They did not care about anything and continued with shouting and banging on partition wall for anything they tought to be noise. Sometime noise being made by vehicle moving in the roads. We are at the breaking point now after being accused falsely on at least 60-80 times to council and no real outcome. It is sad to see we work everyday and pay taxes and mortgages to get this kind of treatment from people who have lived on benefit in a free house for last 40 years. I dont want no advise but i would say only hard working people do suffer in these situations. Because fear of losing what we have. There is nothing you can do to make these people understand since all they want everything free and their way.

We have a Asian young female neighbour who is obviously unwell but keeps shouting swearing and call everyone in site White sh##, white scum and is very aggressive even threatening. The constant references to white scum etc is unacceptable.

My neighbor park his car cross way with the back end about 2 inches from my swing open gate. When I open my gate the, gate just miss hitting his car by 2 inches. I have not said anything about it, to him, because I can get into my driveway. But I feel eventually he will move his car back 2 inches, blocking my swing open gate from opening, and I can't get into my owen driveway. Question: what can I do about this matter.Thank you, Sincerely, from Anthony Dukes. February 13, 2020 at 9:38 PM.

I have a neighbor that is harassing me behind where I park my cars on the public street in front of my house, she stands in her back yard staring at my grandbabies saying to them they harrising her dog because they playing in my yard, she is calling the city on me saying I am blocking her driveway but I have pictures proving her wrong and she is making it a habit to Park in front of my car very close blocking her driveway and being messy because she has a driveway and she can also park in front of her house,she is raceiest because I've lived in my house for 5 yrs and don't mess with no one ,I need to put a stop to her because she is white and I am black and I feel she is picking at me for no reason, and I am disabled ,
