    Racist. Choose by skill, passion, ability and hard work not ******* color of your skin.

    Rarely agree with you but absolutely spot on.

    Oh man don't make me think back so vividly. He was just a young lad trying his best, bless him, but so ******* nervous. He went to the bathroom twice so I assume he had the squitz.

    I am new in town so was trying to find a regular, and it was a Sunday so went to a really random place.

    It is crazy how much a bad haircut experience ruins your mood.

    I think the moral of the story is that Stormzy should be able to spend his money however he likes.

    Not so such about HSBC getting involved though.

    The only issue with Stormzy on it is that it's not his money as such. He's set up a charitable organisation (aka tax break) to do it. That's therefore a company and not a private individual.

    Agree - and the peeps who said earlier that a white celebrity would be chastised if they did similar are absolutely correct. I can appreciate the gesture by Stormzy and obviously he can do whatever he wants with his own money, but everyone is **** scared to publicly lambast actions such as these due to being branded racist themselves, so all I am expecting to see reported in the media is fawning over Stormzy and how much of a hero he is, rather than any criticism over the obvious exclusion of a large proportion of able students who would be equally deserving of help.

    I don't see why people have an issue, as I see the former in this. Using his newfound wealth to help the young black people have a better chance than they would have done.

    Is everyone just out to get their pants in a twist these days?

    That can certainly be applicable and the side effects aren't necessarily very woke either.

    For example, a friend of mine was ranting about his company, they'd gotten rid of a couple of Asian guys during the pandemic but when it came to new hires more recently he recommended a (male) friend for a job and was fobbed off, a newly minted female director has explicitly stated that she'll be prioritising women in STEM this year.

    Thing is there isn't a shortage of Asian guys in tech roles so it's within a woke agenda for them to be disposable and indeed excluded in favour of (often white) women going forwards, which is what has happened at his firm.

    So long as the overall stats end up looking better then who cares about the other effects.

    It doesnt bother me except you would think the qualification would be a very bright student killing it in exams but unable to go to uni due to money pressures of some kind

    Jealousy mainly and fear of losing your heritage. It's a numbers game and majority group identity gives people comfort. It's comforting to identify with a majority of people who share a common belief and culture and the fear is that the majority is being dissolved which it is really well if things keep going this way.

    The sense of privilege is being lost. I believe there are a lot of forces trying to destroy England also both from within and outside, a lot of Europeans hate what they call English arrogance. Everybody hates the English basically apart from white English people.

    I don't see how people cannot understand the issue. This is an action to benefit a group of people selected based on their skin colour. This defines racism.

    Farage is to fund 40 white kids from kent to Cambridge.

    Read that again and now image the headlines and outrage.

    So in your opinion why is this all going on, why this mission to protect and help minorities?

    If you have nothing to offer in the way of argument either way in a thread why don't you just keep out of it rather than pathetically posting something you think makes you look virtuous?

    In other news: -

    About 33% of white British school students enrolled in university in the academic years 2010/11 and 2011/12.

    That is the lowest enrolment rate of any ethnic group

    —next lowest is Black Caribbean students at 37%. By comparison the highest performing groups were Chinese students (76%), Indian students (67%) and Black African students (57%).

    Recent research suggests white British attendance has fallen since then.

    At the expense of someone else with the wrong colour skin.

    I see the racism on here is growing and the acceptance of it.

    BLM has given them all the green light and that was the plan.

    Reap what sow, that's my warning.

    Based on the ring wing nut job posters here I thought university was a bad idea anyway?
