If they receive respect for nothing but being women and black then there is something wrong with our society. If they receive disrespect for nothing but their colour and gender, again this points to a problem in our society. I think the answer to both of these questions, in varying degrees, is yes.

there is undoubted bias, though more subconscious instead of blatant, against black people and minorities in people still in 2020 imo in the UK

No one intrinsically receives respect from society without circumstances like wealth (most people would respect an upper-middle class person more than a working class person) and education (most people would respect a doctor over a cleaner) working in their favour. But, there are characteristics that put you at a further disadvantage in terms of respect for sure, race and gender being huge factors in those. I'm sure most women will understand that their knowledge on a topic is generally taken with a pinch of salt compared to that of a man. We are trusted less, be it subconsciously or not. I'm white, and can't speak for racial minorities but I'm sure the same effect is seen racially.

Yes they do.

I think there is a hierarchy in society which mainly a wealth divide, money and power is where the hierarchy exists.

What's your opinion?

Some people are paranoid about skin colour but it probably is the fault of those winding them up for money, or so we like to think.

No, do you a member of society think that black women receive the same amount of respect as any other race of woman?

Yes, I feel that a lot of people are over-sensitive about the colour of their skin because they are told they should be. That can be in the so-called education system, where some people are paid for doing that, the media, also for money, or even by politicians with no other string to their bows than agitating the race card and persuading people that they are victims of something they can only be saved from by voting in a certain way. I have to say that asking if society respects black women is the sort of thing that I can only attribute to that, it's totally airy-fairy and devoid of substance of any kind. Classroom/Guardianista/Labourite speak, totally meaningless.
