This paper questions the conflation of ethnicity and race in UK public policy and in the media. The paper asserts that race and ethnicity should be treated as distinct categories, as human rights legislation recognises, whilst acknowledging that intersectionality (overlapping, interconnected social categorisations especially in relation to disadvantage) also exists. The paper highlights the disadvantage faced by ‘minorities within minorities’ such as Black atheists whose voices are supressed by the current government’s insistence on using ‘faith’ as a surrogate category for ‘race’.
