When asked to fill in a racial justice survey, one female employee from Oxfam, one of the UK's largest charities, said she felt "under attack for being white, English, and voting Leave", The Times reported on Wednesday.
Another Oxfam staff member said in reference to the survey: "Surely the time and money should be better spent on the real findings that some of the men they employ are sexual predators?" About 88 percent of Oxfam workers in Britain are white.
The remarks come after 1,800 Oxfam employees in the UK were asked whether they see themselves as non-racist, anti-racist, or none/neither in the questionnaire, written by a four-person working group, according to The Times.
Aside from the questions, the questionnaire reportedly argued that "all echelons of power, to some degree, exist to serve whiteness (whether by legacy, the presence of neo-colonialism, or cultural imperialism)".
The survey also described racism as "a power construct created by white nations for the benefit of white people".
The investigation comes weeks after Oxfam was cleared to apply for government aid funds again in the wake of the Haiti scandal that grabbed international headlines in 2018. At the time, it emerged that some Oxfam workers were engaged in "sex parties" with prostitutes after the 2010 Haiti earthquake disaster.
Four Oxfam employees were fired for "gross misconduct" and three others, among them charity director in Haiti Roland Van Hauwermeiren, left the organisation.
