Foreign Affairs / Revealed: The Rise Of Mixed-Race Britain - The Gaurdian by anonymous6(f): 4:05am On Dec 01, 2015
Some ethnic groups 'will disappear'

One in 10 children in the UK now lives in a mixed-race family, a major study reveals today, raising future hopes of a non-racist Britain.

Mixed-race relationships are now so common that some ethnic groups - starting with African-Caribbean - will virtually disappear, the research states. Young people are six times more likely to be mixed-race as adults. Experts believe the findings, which come just days after Prince Harry was rebuked for calling a fellow cadet "Paki", and Prince Charles admitted to referring to an Asian friend as "Sooty", mean that future generations "will not see race in the way we see it".

Lucinda Platt, author of the report and an academic at the Institute of Social and Economic Research at Essex University, describes the shift towards a mixed-race Britain as "dramatic".

Half of all men in Britain who have Caribbean heritage and are in a relationship already have partners of a different race. The same is true of one in five black African men, one in 10 Indian men and women and two out of five Chinese women. One in five children belongs to an ethnic minority - a far higher proportion than among the adult population.

This week, a decade on from the Macpherson report into the murder of the black teenager Stephen Lawrence, Trevor Phillips, chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, will "celebrate" the study's findings, but warn that there is still much to be fought for.

A spokeswoman for the commission warned against complacency. "We need to be alert to tensions within communities that may be exacerbated by economic downturn and to remain vigilant against discrimination and divisiveness - particularly across boundaries of faith."

Today's study, commissioned by the EHRC and seen exclusively by the Observer, shows that 9% of children are of "mixed or multiple heritage" - that is, they live with parents from different ethnic groups, or they are themselves of mixed ethnicity. Over the past 14 years the number of children of Caribbean heritage with one white parent has risen from 39% to 49%. Among the Indian population it has increased from 3% to 11%, for Pakistanis from 1% to 4%, and for Chinese from 15% to 35%.

Minorities also tend to be younger. While half of the white British population in Britain is aged over 40, half of the Bangladeshi community is under 21.

it will change. America was like that. it took them 200 yrs to achieve what we admire today. it's a process. we Just started ours. we'll get there albeit slowly unless we're lucky to have a Lee Kwan Yew op park chun Hee who will accelerate it

I agree, Rome didn't fall and rise in a day. So America and Nigeria will go their own Evolvement into a greater society

that's what I used to think
our problem not corruption

our problem is no one wants to sacrifice for the greater Good
like you pointed out we prefer apparent path of least resistance thinking grass is greener on other side even though the same commitment and effort would have produced even better results at home with attendant multiplier effect
but we choose to survive on white man's crumbs (can't blame us sha)
Just saying it as it is

BTW everyone has connections and everyone can make more connections
we simply believe ourselves inferior and will remain so until that mindset changes

we are the ones that encourage lack of accountability, praise singing thieves and rogues while laughing at upright men and women
we're simply reaping bountifully what we've sown


You are right nobody wants to sacrifice but like you said we cant blame them though they are trying to survive, its sad but the bitter reality.

True many Nigerians praise lack of accountability but many others don't praise it but accept that there complaints will not be respected, so they don't bother. Thieves get praise and upright men and women get laughed at cause of the results of their lifestyle, sad but true

unfortunately we don'
you can't force child to not watch MTV
unless you refuse to buy TV
they're the ones who will be misinformed not you the parent
oyinbo know what they're doing
personally I hope to get only DVD of history, discovery and Nat Geo channels.
and no we don't look up to business men
only ibos do that (lucky them)
we Yoruba look up to doctors and lawyers etc
while northerners look up to politicians and indolent Civil servants

well true but in a society that glorifies the Kardashians, I don't see that changing anytime soon

At least igbos, Yoruba and northerners are looking up to something good but I feel yorubas look up to business people to, it isn't only a igbo thing but I guess igbo's are a little better at it.

this is amongst Yoruba's talking to each other, there is no Igbo vs. Yoruba fight in the tweets just appreciation, hype, glorification, and criticism of Yoruba boys amongst Yoruba's

that's the power of the media
it's called psychology
that's what all. those research about what ppl like and how ppl think and react is used for
they make sure you see more entertainers on TV (hypnosis) than doctors lawyers welders barbers (these guys are making bank like mad)
that's how they manipulate
not jazz
Just smoke and mirrors
why do you think there is more got talent shows than spelling bees

well true I am not denying outside influences on the black American community but there needs to be a time where enough is enough, start taking responsibility as a whole, and they start pushing against the manipulation in full force and it starts from the home in the end of the day. The Asians did that very well and see where they are now in America. Africans may not have a China town but majority of them don't look up to entertainers like African Americans do, we look up more to Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote and etc then Jay-z and Beyoncé.

thanks. I think it's good to have an educated plan. but theory Is easy. May God help us to implement our proposal

besides if they were truly educated they would not need to travel out as their education should have solved the problem that made their country unlivable in the first place


you have a point but the problem with African countries is corruption and instability has inhibited some educated Africans to prosper in African countries unless they have connections, that's why many run to the western world. The western world is not perfect but there is stability and assurance for tomorrow and some Africans would rather chose that then fight with a system in Africa where tomorrow is not guaranteed and there is no accountability for people doing wrong on top people suffering on the bottom working for them.

shows that they aren't really highly educated
Just.highly schooled same difference

yea you have some points and another question that needs to be asked is highly educated in what? are they highly educated as a surgeon or highly educated as a lawyer cause those two will give different results in jobs

yeah but very little presence in medicine, science, wall street,politics things that matter.Just entertainment that only 1% of 1% that's 0.01%Will ever excel at. thereby reinforcing the belief that blacks can only make it through entertainment (basically upgraded sambos and Crispity crunchity Crackily coons, drug dealers and pole dancing /booty shaking)

more media manipulatio
they've got us dead to rights

when it comes to medicine, science, wall street and politics and etc that is up to Black Americans to see that as as a priority, from what I have observe, people in the entertainment industry are more respected then people in medicine, science and etc in the African American community unless that person is President Obama. Now I am not talking about the educated and white collar black Americans(ex. Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Melody Hobson, medical doctors, engineers and etc). I am talking about the many blue collar and ghetto black Americans that uplift the entertainment industry and American sports over medicine and science, and those black Americans are high lighted more and are more in population then the white collar educated black Americans that you don't see highlighted alot. When it comes to Black Africans well their ruling in their own countries in politics but its all about corruption for most black African countries, so Black Africans are not the best with that but There are Africans excelling in business, science and medicine cause Black Africans put priorities in those fields for example besides inside Africa(or course), if you go to any western world especially Canada, America and the UK you will see African doctors, nurses, Pharmacist, engineers, business owners and etc; and you see many Nigerians amongst those Africans. check this link out:

not their problem.

Yea it isn't their problem but its a fact

mikolo80:
not their problem. not their fault that y'all haven't learnt to play the propaganda game. instead nta is busy reporting wedding, and traditional dance instead of representing the black race internationally. smh

Yup it isn't their problem lol, just saying facts. Also Black Africans are representing black Africans internationally in Business. African American's are representing black Americans and black race in entertainment worldwide.
