    “For example, Chinese and Indian men are nearly twice as likely as white British men to be in professional jobs.”Just 14 per cent of white men are in professional jobs, compared with 27 per cent of Chinese and 25 per cent of Indian men.

    How does this show racism?
    How would it show racism or sexism if blacks and women are less represented in professional jobs?

    Its the same ridiculous argument, using white vs. asian to show how ridiculous it is

    Just read the entire article, is the guy bipolar or something? Opens about how ethnic minorities are at an advantage... And the majority of the article says the opposite.

    The only reason this happens is because corporates can pay them lower.

    I heard too many stories about how asians are expected to do the same job for lower pay.

    So it raises another problem.

    So 17% of Chinese men are chefs? Doesn't sound very 'professional'.

    The article is from 2010, it would be interesting to know if things have changed since then much. I suspect that employers in the private sector are able to get some skills more cheaply from Asian and African workers as they will be more competitive (or desperate) to get available roles. In addition there is the usual thing here that immigrants as a group are often very much more hard working and willing to accept unjust pay and conditions than settled workers - the same phenomenon can be observed all over the world and in many historical periods.
