Almost 63 percent of the music makers have experienced racism in the UK industry as per a study.

It was the first-ever study done to highlight the racial discrimination prevalent in the UK. Despite increased representation within the British music industry, the UK sector remains hostile to Black creators and professionals, according to a report that highlights the effects of systemic racism on mental health and a racial pay gap that disproportionately affects Black women. Racial microaggressions were rife, experienced by 71% of Black music creators and witnessed by 73%.

The UK music industry has so many black singers and artists. However, almost half of them have faced discrimination in their career from the Britishers. Black Lives in Music is a body advocating for equal opportunities for Black people to work in the UK music industry without discrimination. The study is the first of its kind and intended to address the lack of data on the everyday reality for Black music personnel.

The study further stated that the conditions in the UK and US about racial discrimination are almost the same.
