Universities 'hideously white'?

Why can’t universities be left to take in the cleverest and brightest pupils instead of being forced to accept blacks and other minorities because of the colour of their skin?

According to the idiot Trevor Phillips a place in university should be based entirely on the colour of your skin and not your academic ability. Maybe Trevor should stay out of things like this? Maybe instead of having quotas for black people at university the universities should base the intake of students purely on intelligence and test scores? Wouldn’t that be a much fairer way?

What good old Trevor doesn’t realise is that minority students are already over represented. They make up 10% of the population of Britain and 16% of the university population. Maybe Trevor does know this and still wants them to be even more over represented because universities are ‘hideously white’ or ‘hideously intelligent’.

I'm new here and your blog was one of the first ones I've come across. All I can say is amen to this post. In America, where I live, we have something really stupid called "affirmative action". Meaning that If you have a white guy and a black or hispanic guy who are both applying to a university, chances are the colored person going to get accepted, regardless of credintiality. Is it just like that in Britain?
