Tendai Maphosa recently reported that minorities in Britain have double the poverty rate as non-minorities.
A new report says the poverty rate for Britain’s minority ethnic groups stands at 40 percent, double the 20 percent found among white British people. The report says minority ethnic groups are also being overlooked for jobs and are being paid lower wages, despite improvements in education and qualifications.
The report pointed out that people from minority ethnic groups who have higher educational achievements do not receive the same rewards as those from white British backgrounds with similar qualifications.
When will we actualize the dreams of men like Martin Luther King? It disgusts me that in 2007 we still have racism, and thus racial poverty, still plaguing this world.
