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.

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.

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.

Hi I have a night mere neighbour. I am 81 and white British. Now people talk about coercive control, it doesn't happen only in marriage or living with a partner. My neighbour is a classic example any thing doesn't go his way bad language and frothing of mouth comes up. If he is reported to Authority then is a back lash such as throwing a 6ft plank, throwing rubbish pushing my Arbour on my flowers. I have reported him several times he always comes up with excuses which he is believed. I asked the police for cctv because he invites himself to my premises when I am not home. Police said they don't provide council said they don't either. i just can not afford to have some one to install one. In the summer I have to hide under umbrella as he is up and down with his nose over the fence. There is much more. Latest is he has build summer house in the part of his garden which is registered as Agricultural land and looks straight into my dining room. I complaint to the council, after which he puts planning application though it has been declined but i am not sure what will happen.

Continue: daughter 17 run to me with violence and snatched the mobile and thrown it to the floor of my car and damaged it!! I recorded that but only!! And yet no one was interested to what is happening to me and they were calming her down!! I shouted and said: is everybody here against me just because I'm new and Muslim lady!! I have been living here for 15 years and all my children born here and if any of you were fair enough you would ask me what's my problem instead of listing to one story only!! I told them about her sons behaviour and how friendly I tried to be to them for long time by offering dishes from time to time and offering lifts to the mother attacking me when she was walking and even told them how many times her son came to visit and offered food and cakes and play time with us but all stopped when he returned it by rude behaviors and hiding the ball!! She screamed again to drive more attention and said No you did that because I am Black!!!! I said What! Don't use that card as I never treated you difrently ever and the proof that my son used to play with yours for long time and you just started your fight with me using racist words such us go to your F* country and who are you!!! At the end we reach peace agreement that we will have fresh start and we will keep our good relations.. but I was ill of panic attack for the whole night and next day when I had sharp pains in my arms and legs and headache that all accompanies when I am super afraid.. plus found my mobile is damaged and I took it to repairs and cost me £70 for new screan and repairs as all the buttons where not working on my IPhone 6.. what shall do? Should I forget about it? Or mention it to housing or police? Or tell her to compensate me for the repair and balls ? Or nothing at all and have fresh start????

Jane - Your Question:
I recently moved next to a racist family in Braintree England and the woman is unemployed and at home everyday. She seems quite lonely and evil and hisses and snarls racial verbal abuse at our direction and has even picked up cat and dog excrement and placed it on our house. She seems uneducated and displays neo nazism. I once complained to the police but I decided not to press charges incase things escalated but as a result she and her husband continue to dedicate every passing hour to interrupting a quiet area with racist slurs and being discriminatory. I am close to pressing charges.

Our Response:
You should report them to the police again - this sort of behaviour has to be stopped, so unfortunately it's up to you to report it.
