If you’re white, poor, and male, the chances are you’ll have a tougher start in life to that of your Asian, Chinese, or Black counterparts, a new report by Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has revealed. The findings, which run counter to the left-wing, social justice warrior (SJW) narrative of “white privilege” reveals that those born into less wealthy, white families in the United Kingdom will struggle in early life. The report is said to be “the most comprehensive review ever carried out on progress towards greater equality in Britain” according to the BBC.
The EHRC has revealed, in their new report
entitled, “Is Britain Fairer?” that “life on many fronts has got worse”
for those of white and poor backgrounds “as the country becomes more
ethnically and religiously diverse than at any point in its history”.
In summary, the report reveals that [w]hite pupils from poorer
backgrounds, especially boys, suffered the worst start in life as they
continued to fall further behind every other ethnic group at school –
with their chances of a successful and prosperous career decreasing as a
“Younger people suffered the greatest drop in income and employment
compared to older age groups and now face greater barriers to achieving
economic independence and success than they did five years ago.
“Chinese and Indian pupils continue to perform better than all other
ethnicities at school and a higher proportion of school leavers from
ethnic minorities go on to higher education than white pupils.
“Bangladeshis and Pakistanis have seen the biggest improvements in
education and employment, while Black workers, who were previously one
of the better paid ethnic groups, suffered one of the largest falls in
Laura Carstensen, EHRC Commissioner said: “While we have made
important progress in many areas – and it is important to note and
celebrate this – the gateways to opportunity that the Commission
identified five years ago remain harder to pass through for some groups
such as disabled people, those from poorer backgrounds and women over a
The report adds: “Poor White boys in particular suffer a combination
of disadvantage. Being poor now has a far more negative impact on the
education of White children than it does for any other ethnic group.
Poor White boys suffer higher rates of exclusion from school and achieve
the lowest academic results – making them less likely to enter higher
education and therefore more likely to end up in lower-paid, insecure
jobs. Men aged 45-49 now suffer the highest rates of suicide – a figure
which has increased significantly over the last five years.”
“Life for some ethnic groups has improved dramatically. The Pakistani
and Bangladeshi group saw some of the greatest improvements of any
group across educational attainment, health, employment and level of
poverty, although these improvements tended to be from a much lower
starting point, and they still do not fare as well as White people
across these areas of life. Chinese and Indian students have continued
to perform better than all other ethnicities at school and, overall, a
higher proportion of ethnic minority pupils goes on to higher education
than White pupils.”
