    Guess how many people in the RAF are Jewish?

    7.

    And that is true, and the data is for 2003.

    But the question is, is this due to some sort of racism? Or is it that Jewish people as a whole don't want to join the RAF?

    Not a huge supprise. Strict jews tend to stay in family business or more vocal and mental occupations. Not that many go into the lower branches of the military as they tend to be ambitious. My guess is that those seven would be higher up in the RAF, senior pilots at least. Its a cultuaral thing, common to succesfull minority groups.
    But seven does seem low.

    I think personally it is because there is no history of Jews in the RAF. By that, I mean lots of people follow their father or mother into the RAF, as the way of life is very engaging, varied, and lots of children of RAF parents want similar lives for their children etc.

    In israel the jews have to join the army @ 17 to protect their country for a couple of years before they can get a proper job.
    could it just be that there are more white than black ppl in England and so the ratio just makes it like that? 10 white for 1 black?

    They also have to put in a certain amount of hours every year, as they get older they put in less hours. But it's still common to see 40+ year olds contributing to the army.

    but they're an ethnic minority...surely there wouldn't be equal numbers of jewish people in the RAF as others...

    I think the ratio is more like 25 white for 1 black or higher.

    Whats the ratio of black applicants to white applicants?

    Did it cross your mind that the black people who were refused were maybe not deserving of a place?
