SOUNDBITE (English) Ngozi Fulani, Sistah Space charity founder:"If you asked me a question and I give you the answer, then that's that, move onto the next question. But if I give you that answer several times and you won't accept it, then let's recognize that there's a problem here. Alright. I am very clear. I was not given the answer that she wanted me to give and so, we could not move on and it was when she said, oh, I knew we would get there in the end, that proved to me, you were determined to prove that I had no right to British citizenship."++WHITE FLASH++5. SOUNDBITE (English) Ngozi Fulani, Sistah Space charity founder:"So institutional racism is a problem all over the UK. It's in the police. It's been established. It's in the fire brigade department, that was established. So even in parts of the NHS (National Health Service), it's a problem and it's impacting a person. The one person isn't responsible. They need to review their whole policy on equality and race."++ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE:A Black charity founder, who was repeatedly asked where she "really came from" by an honorary member of the UK's royal household, said on Thursday she believed "institutional racism is a problem all over the UK."Ngozi Fulani, chief executive of Sistah Space, an east London refuge that provides specialist support for women of African and Caribbean heritage, had detailed a conversation she had with Lady Susan Hussey at a Buckingham Palace reception on Tuesday for those working to end domestic violence.That exchange then led to the resignation of the 83-year-old Hussey as an honorary member of the Royal Family.Speaking to UK broadcaster Sky News following the resignation, Fulani said she believed Lady Hussey was "determined to prove that I had no right to British citizenship.""Now, that reminds me of the Windrush conversation where 50, 60 years on, people who were born here, worked here or have given so much can just be thrown out," Fulani added.Buckingham Palace said it had taken the matter "extremely seriously" and had investigated immediately.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
