Twenty years after the murder of Stephen Lawrence, a YouGov Poll with ITV News London and LBC 97.3 reveal public opinion on racism.
Boris Johnson has ordered a review of racism issues in the Metropolitan Police.
On the night of a gala screening of new movie "Red Tails", one British veteran struggled to stay in the Forces because of racist attitudes.
There is now "sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction" of PC Alex MacFarlane, a Crown Prosecution Service review concluded.
Lawyers studied footage appearing to show the officer say to a 21-year-old black man: "The problem with you is you will always be a n*****, yeah?".
Alison Saunders, chief prosecutor for CPS London, said she had advised the Independent Police Complaints Commission to charge PC MacFarlane despite the CPS's decision not to charge him in January.
In March, the complainant's lawyers challenged that decision and, in accordance with standard CPS practice, Grace Ononiwu, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS London, directed that the case be reviewed by a more senior lawyer who was not previously involved.
That review is now complete and the conclusion, based on all the evidence now available, is that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction to charge Pc MacFarlane with a racially aggravated public order offence contrary to Section 4a of the Public Order Act 1986 and Section 31 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
The Crown Prosecution Service has advised the Independent Police Complaints Commission to charge Scotland Yard PC Alex MacFarlane with a racially aggravated public order offence in relation to the alleged abuse of a suspect during the London riots.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe is due to appear before the Home Affairs Select Committee later.
He is expected to be questioned by MPs about racism in the Met .
The Commissioner, Bernard Hogan-Howe, vowed today the force will become an "implacable enemy" of racists as investigations continue into officers accused of racial abuse.
The Met's policy of 'Stop-and-search' has often left officers open to criti-cism so instead they may now ask suspects for fingerprints before they search them.
But is that any better? Here's Glen Goodman's report.
The Metropolian Police Commissioner has said Scotland Yard must deal better with black suspects.
Speaking on LBC Radio, Bernard Hogan Howe pledged to deal with all allegations of abuse. He also said he wanted at least one in three police officers in London to be from an ethnic minority.
Ten cases of alleged racism are currently being investigated by the police watchdog.
Bernard Hogan-Howe was confronted on LBC 97.3 radio by the brother of black bus driver Kester David, whose suspicious death in 2010 is to be reinvestigated by the force.
In a recording played to Mr Hogan-Howe, Roger David said:
– Roger David, Kester David's brother
I think your force needs to buck up its ideas and realise that black and ethnic people are here in Britain, we're part of society and we request and demand the same kind of treatments as white people in Britain...
The police have to start from the top and go right down to the bottom and make sure that they get rid of, eliminate, any racial discrimination within the force.
Mr Hogan-Howe told radio host Nick Ferrari:
– Bernard Hogan-Howe
I agree with him. The first point I'd make is that this is the world's greatest diverse city and we're going to use that as a reason to be the best in the world at policing.
We're not going to use it as an excuse for failing and sometimes I do hear us and sometimes others saying that the diversity of London means that we have a bigger challenge.
The Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Bernard Hogan-Howe, today vowed to stamp racism out of the force.
He told London Tonight that he would be an 'implacable enemy' to racists - and that he would root them out of the force. But he defended the 'vast majority' of his staff as professional and unprejudiced.
The Commissioner admitted that training in one of the most controversial police tactics - stop and search - could be improved, and that the force would focus on that in the coming year.
