    who cares? seriously, if a black child is born today and in 19 years wants to go to oxford its entirely possible aslong as they studied hard and worked hard regardless of there social upbringing.


    same goes for EVERY child born in the uk today. You can become a CEO of a multi billion pound company if you are hardworking enough.

    **** skin colour. It aint no thang!
