    I agree with you. I wonder why black people do degrees like media, dance, psychology, music, like tf Will you get a job from.

    It's based on stereotypes (partially founded) that blacks are more violent and less intelligent.

    What evidence is there for them being less intelligent?

    Erm, source?

    If you mean why black people have an unemployment rate of 13% whereas white people have an unemployment rate of 5% (in the UK 2014-2015 - source: ONS), then it's more to do with class, not race.

    More likely to come from poor families and thus less likely to do well in education (than other ethnic groups), therefore more likely to be unemployed.

    They used an IQ test? As the old saying goes "If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing it is stupid"

    I don't have a solution. I'm just pointing out there are flaws in measuring intelligence by a test. For example, many artists tend to be dyslexic is it fair to judge them on their intelligence by using a spelling test? Some people are great at learning languages but have poor reasoning skills etc

    Hmm not many constructive comments here....

    i mean it contradicts the whole ideology of meritocracy the uk espouses doesnt it? Rather than create a true "equality of opportunity" system, the powers that be imprison us more, racially profile us more, and do not intervene in black communities enough to help black youth. so many factors are against you if youre black due to this racist system
    It has always been like this and always will be. As a colored graduate myself, I can see through this system.

    I know a large number of ethnic minority graduates in non-graduate menial jobs in fact I can't think of anyone who has managed to get a graduate level job.

    Can you give an example where you can certainly say without doubt that you or someone you know was discriminated by race or other ?
