Protests have gripped the world, turning violent, today BLMUK protesters defaced Whitehall and attacked British cops.

Tyson said Floyd’s death was “unacceptable” but highlighted racism towards White people too.

“I’m a white male and I suffer racism in 2020 because I’m a traveller, I come from an ethnic background,” said Tyson.

“Even today you go into pubs, bars, restaurants and it says ‘we reserve the right to not let travellers in, no travellers allowed, gypsies or travellers.

“So it’s not just black people who suffer racism. I think travellers are at the most acceptable form of racism in Britain and around the world.”

“It’s still acceptable to be racist towards travellers. Nothing ever gets done about it, no one ever says anything, it’s just accepted – it is what it is.”

“It’s terrible because you can’t judge everybody with the same brush,” he added.

“To have such things go on in my life with what I’ve been through and to see that on doors, to even be refused as a person, not as an ethnic group or whatever, as a person I’ve been refused entry even when I was world heavyweight champion.”

“I know what it feels like to be racist towards.”

“Unacceptable behaviour at anytime of the year and from anybody.”

“And it’s not just whites, blacks, browns. Anyone can be a racist person, any colour, any background, it doesn’t matter. You can see it and it needs to change.”
