    Britain's Melting Pot A "Rich Mix of Cultures and Religion"

    The Times.


    Ethnic map reveals rich urban mix of cultures and religion
    By Richard Ford, Home Correspondent


    ONE in 14 Britons is from an ethnic minority, but the chance that the next person you bump into today will be of non-British descent is almost one in four, according to census-based research.

    From a clutch of some of the seemingly unverifiable statistics about the immigrant population, another figure published yesterday shows that there is a one in six chance of randomly passing in the street someone from a different faith. But in some parts of the country, particularly in London and big cities outside the capital, the figure is far higher.

    The latest figures, from the 2001 Census, show a country that remained overwhelmingly white and Christian but which in parts was highly diverse. In many areas dominated by immigrants there was a huge mixture of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

    Someone in Brent, northwest London — the most diverse borough in the country — was more likely than not to meet someone from a different ethnic background when out walking. The likelihood of two people at random belonging to a different ethnic group in the borough was 85 per cent because of the melting pot of people living there, according to the figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    Yet in the North East of England, one of the whitest areas, the figures show that in Easington, Co Durham, there was only a 2 per cent chance of bumping into someone from a different ethnic background. While the vast majority of England and Wales was overwhelmingly white, in most London boroughs, Slough, Leicester, Luton and Birmingham, whites made up less than 66 per cent of the population.

    In nine out of the thirty-two London boroughs, less than half the population was white, with the figure falling to 34 per cent in Newham, East London, and lower still in Brent.

    Brent was the most ethnically diverse part of the country with a population comprising 29 per cent white British, 18 per cent Indian, 10 per cent black Caribbean, 8 per cent black African and 9 per cent other white.

    The nearby borough of Harrow had the highest religious diversity, leading to an almost 66 per cent chance that two people at random would belong to a different faith. The major religious group in Harrow was Christian, which made up 47 per cent of the population, followed by 20 per cent Hindu, 7 per cent Muslim and 6 per cent Jewish.

    In spite of this, only 28 of 376 local authority areas had a high level of ethnic diversity and just 11 had high religious diversity. This was based on there being a 50 per cent chance that two people belonging to different groups would meet randomly.

    Britain’s minority ethnic populations remained in the metropolitan areas because of expanding households after the birth of children, new migrants settling close to existing communities from the same ethnic group, and a reducing white population — either moving out or dying. Overall, the ethnic minority population in 2001 was 4.6 million, or 7 per cent of the total population. More than 41 million said that they were Christian, with the second biggest group being 8.5 million who claimed no faith. Muslims accounted for 1.5 million, of whom 60,000 were white British Muslims.

    Ethnic minorities still faced higher levels of unemployment and social deprivation than their white counterparts. In both the 16-24 and 25-39 age groups, unemployment rates among British-born black, Bangladeshi and Pakistani ethnic groups were more than twice as high as white Britons.

    Unemployment was higher among Muslims than any other religious group and when they did find jobs they had the lowest proportion of workers in managerial and professional positions. Graduates from ethnic minorities, including those born in Britain, were more likely to be unemployed than white graduates.

    Joy Dobbs, a divisional director for social and health analysis reporting at the ONS, said: “Black African Muslims have three times the unemployment rate of other Muslims and that’s a very significant difference. What’s interesting is that we know unemployment varies by things like age, by things like qualifications, by things like country of birth.

    “And even if you take account of those things, there’s still a difference between the black African Muslim and others, so we have to conclude this is something to do with people’s ethnicity and religion.”

    Re: Britain's melting pot

    Was this what our menfolk fought and died for in two World Wars?

    As disgusting as these statistics are, it is still plain that they have been 'cooked' to make them less frightening to the average citizen...rather like the old joke about shortening the unemployment lines ("The Government has halved the length of the unemployment line...by making the jobless stand side-by-side").

    A couple of years ago, a Jewish sociologist made a statement on TV which claimed that it would not be possible to even fill Wembley Stadium with London's immigrant residents. The 'trick' in that case was to choose a very slim definition of who qualified to be listed as an immigrant.

    Sooner or later, even the mildest white citizens are going to understand that the only way to clean up our cities is with blood and iron.

    The results of the British Empire. Britain expands to other countries, and then the people come with them back. If you see where these people originally lived, it's no wonder why they want to immigrate to Britain.
    By the way, there are a lot of little Terrorist cells poppin up in Britain lately. They want to kill British soldiers because they fight their "brethen." That's another story though. I pray for the future of that country.

    This makes me happy that I'm studying in the north of the country. ^^ Almost no darkies up here, and just a few Asians who are not a problem. It is sad though, what this article suggests. Every time I go to London it's difficult to actually not be shocked by the amount of non-whites.

    London is horrific, indeed, but do you live in the same 'north of the country' that I live in?!

    Asians not a problem?!?! Where do the bombers recruit? In the northern towns of Bradford, Oldham, Burnley, Leeds, Bolton, ad infinitum. Not a day goes by without some 'incident' caused by the muslims up here.

    Out of sight, out of mind! That is more or less what I meant. I know they are a problem here - especially in Birmingham. I'm actually in Lancaster itself, which has very little in the way of foreigners, other than students, most of whom are white though.

    Ah. Lancaster's a tiny place though. Just pop down the road to Preston or Blackburn and it's quite a different matter.

    Meh, I know - I've been to Manchester as well, and it's far more "colorful," so to speak. It still isn't as bad up here as it is in areas like London though. I can't believe England is being overrun by non-whites like this! Some of these people even have the audacity to suggest that it adopts Sharia law.

    Any potential students here, go to Lincoln University. Hardly any ethnics at all, student-wise and especially the locals.
