SIR - It was interesting to see the large number of complaints to Ofcom about Diversity's performance on Britain's Got Talent recently when they re-enacted on stage the killing of George Floyd by a police officer.

What this says to me is that many people in the UK believe the response to that awful killing has gone too far, or is disproportionate. But most of them don't say anything because they are afraid of being called racist. They are also tired of being afraid of being called racist while being lectured by the patronising woke movement.

Furthermore, when supporters of Black Lives Matter use phrases like "white privilege" and "white people are all racist", it is they that are being racist themselves. They don't seem to get irony.

Identity politics is a now serious problem and a pandemic. It makes people more aware of their differences when it should do the opposite. And while I condemn ALL racism and division, this flawed ideology serves only to increase resentment and division in our society.
