A LEADER of a new political party inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement has called for people accused of racism to be put on a sex offenders-style “race offenders register”.
Sasha Johnson, the self-styled “Black Panther of Oxford”, said anyone added to the proposed list would be stopped from doing certain jobs or living in certain areas.
Johnson, 26, a youth worker and cafe owner, gained attention over summer as a prominent figure at a number of BLM protests, and has since helped to found the Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP).
She now serves on the party’s executive committee as the member in charge of activism.
Speaking to MailOnline about the party’s proposals, Johnson said the race offences list would be intended to protect minority groups from racist abuse and other discriminatory behaviour.
“It’s similar to the sex offenders register,” she said.
“If you were to be racially abusive to someone, [the register] would question whether someone is fit enough to hold a particular job where their bias could influence another person’s life.”
