Popular United Kingdom human rights activist, Comrade Victor James, KC Lloyd, Ewerem Wilson and other UK Nigeria community leaders, yesterday, endorsed Simon Foster as the West Midlands Labour Candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner.

James, in a statement, urged everyone in West Midlands to throw their weight behind Simon Foster, adding that Foster is one the strong campaigners for “Black Lives Matter”, hence if given the mandate, he would serve the amplify the rights of the ethnic minority community.

The fearless rights advocate regretted that the minority community have been treated unfairly by Police institutions, pointing out that Foster has the capacity to right the wrongs.

He said : “ During the recent African community meeting I organized, Simon addressed the following issues: inclusion and diversity in policing, effective policing that reflects on and meet minority community concerns in West Midlands, upholding rule of law in policing, the increment of community policing budgets and recruitment of more members of BAME community, eliminating youth violence among other issues.

“ Attention was given to the poor and inhuman treatment for case affecting black community, such case tend to be brushed under the carpet due to systemic racism. There are some incidents that should be handled by black police because they will relate better and understand the best approach to the situation owing to cultural relativism and awareness.

“ Simon promised to fix the above problem if given the mandate at the election. Note that other candidates are campaigning to scrap the commission, which will further hamper the democratic checks and balance in police institutions. Simon‘s victory would be a turning point for the lost of hope and public trust in policing and the lack of justice in the system.”

James added : “ Racial profiling has no place in our society; it is a stain on British democratic values.

Speaking further, James appealed to the electorate of African community in West Midlands to vote for Simon Foster and Liam Byrne the Labour Mayoral candidate for West Midlands.

James noted :” Simon’s background is purely advocacy and he has spent 34 years making a huge difference in community and if elected, I strongly
believe that youth violence will be history in West Midlands.

He encouraged African community to register to vote as statistics show that there is poor voting habits from African community which is in deep contrast to the “ Black Lives Matter” campaign.
