In my opinion you will never have equality until there is equality across the board, where race/sex etc is brought out of the whole equation.
There are many positive descrimination schemes etc things out there - for example - all grants available to people of "ethnic minority" or who are female - why should they be treated better than whites or males, (it doesnt cost them more to come to uni- i have nothing against grants for disbaled etc - but even they arent as common as grants for "widening participation").
By treating people differently because of race/sex you make the population do the same. If universities/government/other institutions treated everybody the same (positive and negative descrimination) i think the general population would soon follow suit.
You cant pick and choose where descrimination is acceptable - it has to be equal across the board.
What are your opinions?

Do people really think race is a barrier in modern Britain? I don't. Is it skin colour holding back a black man from Hackney or social class; quality of state schools especially.
