“All white men should have a Black slave” — UK councilor Andrew Edwards
An investigation is being conducted into the alleged racist remarks by a Conservative politician, Andrew Edwards who reportedly stated that “all white men should have a Black slave.”
Andrew, a former magistrate and County councillor from Pembrokeshire, Wales is accused of claiming that Black people are of a “lower class” compared to their white counterparts, as evidenced by a recently surfaced online audio.
“Nothing wrong with the skin colour at all. I think all white men should have a Black man as a slave or Black woman as a slave, you know.”
“There’s nothing wrong with skin colour, it’s just that they’re lower class than us white people,” he allegedly stated in the audio.
While Mr Edwards has voluntarily reported himself to the Public Services Ombudsman. The Conservative group on Pembrokeshire County Council has confirmed that they are investigating the matter.
Mr Edwards, who also serves as a school governor, has not been suspended.
Reacting to the allegations, he stated: “I am aware of such serious allegations being made against me. This is why I have self-referred to the Public Services Ombudsman for an independent evaluation.
It is now in the hands of legal experts and the ombudsman. It would be unfair on the process for me to comment.”
A Pembrokeshire council spokesperson said:
“We are aware of an allegation being made and have referred the matter to the ombudsman. It would be inappropriate to comment further.”
