What to Do About Racist Behaviour?

By: Sarah Clark (ILEX) - Updated: 10 Jun 2020 | comments*Discuss
 
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, 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.

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.

I am mom of 5 moved a year ago to house and started being annoyed with our next door neighbor young son, age 9 traspassing our back garden for his ball, bulling and swear at my son who is only 7. And things escalated when he started calling him names (fat, girl, stupid..) and my son war started to be afraid of going to the back garden!! And then he started to through our balls to the other nighbours who had dogs so they would pop our ball!! I tried to send my girls to complain to the mother and older son 20 and no help offered!! We lost 3 balls and a lot of hard time when play time ruined once our ball lands by mistake on their garden!! Although we always throw their ball back without any problem.. we contacted the housing about this behavior after 7 months of stress.. and since then their boy stopped jumping on our back garden or even speaking to my son and it was so relaxing time but we kept throwing back their ball to them, while they keep our ball for looong time before throwing it back.. as revenge.. we kept things calm as possible and I kept buying new balls and ask my only son not to kick it high so it won't land on their garden.. until 2 days ago things exploded!!! He kicked his last ball and the boy hold it and took it inside their house!! My daughter asked him to return it he said, he will be in trouble with his old brother if he did!! And he mentioned that several times before!! So I went personally and was fully fed up and it has been a year haveing this problem with this childish behavior!!! The boy opened the door, so I asked for his mom straight away, so the boy called his mom and said( mom next door here for the ball, but she asked me to hide it in not me!!!!!!) she knocked him to stop talking and said what do you want???? I a said with surprise: I'm here to complain about the old story of the ball and thought its boys problem but it seems the problem is with you as well as you asked you son to hide it!!! She said yes because you reported us to housing!! I said yes and that's because you for long months insisted not to solve the problem!!! She said well go to hell.. I said ok you will hear from council again then!! And I left.. she followed me with anger and start swearing at me saying: who are you to come here and threatening me!! Go back from where you come from you F*immigrants!! F* the council.... I was going back toward my car and asking her to stop coming toward me but she lost her control and came to me and she was about to hit me when I started to scream for help and someone calling police!! All the neighbors who knew her for long time stood next to her against me and didn't bother to ask me with the problem and instead they asked her so she started by telling lies and mentioned our report to housing against them.. so everyone look at anger to me and the lady was shouting and saying very bad racist words.. when I felt all alone and afraid I took my mobile to record the swearing words but her daughter 17 run to me wit

Sue - 22-Dec-16 @ 2:24 PM
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.

My husband and I and our children were harassed by this Mexican family for 29 years. They are racist against everyone. I've had 3 restraining orders on them.Every time the restraining order expires,they start harassing us again. They follow us in their car.Their kids are all over the age of 40 years old now and 1 still lives at home.He has no respect for anyone or anything. He follows my now elderly husband while I'm at work.He s constantly looking into our backyard. I'm constantly calling the police.

I am Mexican and have two boys whose father is Black, my current husband is Anglo and a law enforcement officer.A year ago a neighbor moved next to us who is targeting us and harassing us, she has Aspbergers and her son is Autistic. The husband is a pilot who is never ever home, she never opens her blinds and is currently trying to get my husband fired by filing false allegations and even went to the extent of filing a formal complaint to the office of disabled people stating that she is afraid of us, specially my husband even when we have had NO contact or interaction with her at all.All her statements are false... What can I do????

I had the first encounter of racism tonight. In my neighbor white neighbors will just stare without saying anything but this was much worse. We had a family member who was a senior who wandered out and sat near the person property, they needed help getting back home and mind you have health problems like diabetes and neuropathy, so we knew we couldn't simply walk them back, so we got in are car to go down about a block and a half to pick them, we pulled into the nearest driveway so we could get them there as soon as possible, so we got out of the car, attempted to help him up but couldn't as we were both female and couldn't carry his weight, so we had to wait for my male family members. We were literally away from our car for about less than a minute and were going back to it to pull out when a caucasian man tells us he has called the cops on us, for pulling in his driveway briefly, he tells us to leave which is what we were doing when it came out of the house heckle us, but then stands in front of the driver side door so we can't leave, mind you we are two african american females and he is a white man bigger than both of us. My female family memeber manages to get in the car and starts to pull out of the driveway then this man jumps behind the car trying to prevent her from being able to back out she continues as he trying to hold the car, and she manages to leave, I explain to him that we have a family member that is sick and we need help, he says he's on my property he needs to get off my property and as I'm explaining we need help, he's calling the cops claiming we parked in his driveway before, that we tried to run him over and all other nonsense that didn't happen. As soon as he saw we were black he called the cops and even after telling him we needed help he refused and persisted to tell us to get off of his property. Luckliy the cops helped and didn't believe this man as he was obviously racist not only that the man lied to them claiming we didn't ask for help and if did he would have helped I couldn't believe he was trying to save face in front of the cops. This was a horrible encounter with a racist for me as it was already a stressful situation and it literally was life or death because had someone who was a senior and a diabetic been outside any longer they could have went into shock which was something I wasn't willing to risk, but the white man had no problem with risking anothers life if the person was black, I couldn't how heartless and mean this person was. It was shocking and afterwards he wanted to report us! And for what is what I wondered for trying to help a family member who he claimed was on his property and the point was we were trying to but at the same time he was telling us to leave he was trying to prevent us from leaving because he wanted the cops to come and arrest us as he put it. I'm sure he was very disappointed when two minority cops showed up and made no arrest because there was nothing to arrest

Hi long story short , my and my family have been subject to racism for the last two years , though I've withheld from using the race card hoping it will go away a recent incident has taken this to the next level leaving my 5 year old daughter petrified and with questions asking me where were from and why do the neighbours shout us to go back. Further more the neighbours have stuck on the confederate flag on the back of their car.I've called the police and been to citizens advice b. But it seems that I'm hitting dead end with them. My wife is worried about out families welfare as we have a child of 5 and a child with extreme disability . Can anyone guide us/me to have this stopped or prevent them in anyway?
Kyle - 2-Aug-15 @ 3:52 AM
@junamuri. You should report all incidents of racist behaviour to the police. There are also many organisations for racial equality that can support you. Ask at your local Citizens Advice Bureau for more details.

I been checking for a house to rent in a fewwebsites, I found one a bit expensive, but cover all my necessities, so I call the agency, obviouslyYou can understand that I am not British, so, they told me the house is out of the market. Ok. Those was on Monday, on Friday, I passed near of the house, and the advertising still in the house, so I say to my wife, please call you, and will see. She is not British as well, so they say no. Ok. But on the next week I still seen the house in internet, so I ask to one of my British friends for a favor, and he call the same agency, the same agent say yes, the house is available. So, now where I can complain?? Or I can do ,???? I feel really discriminated. Thanks

So a few months on and the insidious antics of the nasty bitter woman below me is is full flow, deeper than I even thought. An asb case opened against me(defamation) has been closed as all part of her campaign oddly her good friends who live next door who have conspired against me have dismissed the idea of mail theft, get this for a laff! Two weeks ago this person decided to sign for Amazon packages as me! She signed exactly as if she were me, so she pretended, the fraud team have been notified, it just goes on and on, it is very hurtful but what I know in my heart is those who wish to believe most probably already have a set in place schema about people of color and as such they need very little evidence to back up their own warped belief system, I am certain karma will visit those who have worked against me. Stay strong as often there is pure envy involved. Bless.

@MRT502 - you should tell the police about this kind of behaviour. It may seem trivial to many (especially those in that particular lettings agency), but if it's treated seriously, we can hope that one day it will stop.
