So it's okay to take in blacks from Hackney and overseas public schools - but screw the rest? I don't see it that way, personally.
No. what he said is exactly what i said.
A great deal of the black population is socially deprived.
Hence by setting access schemes to help those of lower socio-economic groups, you will be helping those deprived black communities, without becoming racist about it.
You are actually arguing about taking a white lads place and giving it to a black lad just so as to get more numbers in the uni. you are saying this irrespective of their own circumstances.
Itspatronising and degrading to the black community, and will only deepen divides.
after all, what come back would a rich black kid at cambridge have when someone simply said - the only reason you're here is because of the colour of your skin.
Cos it would be true.
Conversely if its about socio-economic status rather than skin colour, then that would go more towards aiding social mobility and levelling the playing field.
And thats the important thing tome - giving all as equal a chance as possible rather than giving an advantage to the ethnic group of your chosing.
