As a younger little one, Gamal ‘G’ Turawa was introduced up in a white foster household in Kent. He didn’t give a lot thought to being Black till he moved to London together with his organic father, the place a Metropolitan Police officer spewed a racist insult at him. Why then did he find yourself aspiring to develop into an officer with the identical police power? Recounting his life’s story with riveting candour, Turawa explores how a deep-seeded want ‘to be as white as attainable’ led him to a profession on the Metropolitan Police, the racism he skilled there and even perpetrated himself as an officer, and the way popping out of the closet as a homosexual man finally led him down a path of self-acceptance and self-understanding. Intimately captured by the UK director Cherish Oteka, the documentary The Black Cop: A Villain, a Sufferer and a Hero is each a troubling account of institutional racism within the UK and, via Turawa, a deeply transferring portrait of the complexities of id.
