Black culture (especially American Black culture) promotes anti-authority feelings, anti-social behaviour etc. You only have to listen to the lyrics on 50 cents records to find this out. Maybe this leads to higher crime rates amongst blacks, poorer performance in education and ultimately lower salaries, of which these are all facts.
pause 4 thought.
the oxbridge admissions system is said to work due to the grades that the candidates they select, get, after 3/4 years at the uni.
but, if indians r getting a higher percentage of 1sts than whites, then why is there clear bias towards whites in the oxbridge process?
i am not sayng that because indians get a higher % of 1sts, therefore let loads of indians in, because after all it is a british university, but i am saying, the % of indians getting in out of all indians who apply, is way less than that of whites.
but if indians r gettin more 1sts, then surely dont these 2 statistics contradict?
if the stats showed that a higher % of whites got 1sts than any other ethnicty, then perhaps there is more justification, but in terms of indians that is quite clearly not the case.
anyway, on a different note, does this mean that u r competing against the applicants of ur own race who apply? it just seems like if only 8% or wateva, blacks, get into oxbridge, (i cant remember figure) then it sort of categorizes people into competing against "other blacks" etc.
thats the impression i get from these stats.
e.g.) "ohhh, blacks dont get as many 1sts as whites......"
