Labour MP Admits White Working Class Disadvantaged by Focus on Ethnic Minorities

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner has admitted that the focus of the British political class on ethnic minorities and “women’s agendas” has seen the white working class — and white working-class boys in particular — falling by the wayside.

Spectator editor Fraser Nelson observed that Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) tables have white working-class boys “literally at the bottom of the heap” during an interview with the Labour MP.

“I think it’s because as we’ve tried to deal with some of the issues around race and women’s agendas, around tackling some of the discrimination that’s there, it has actually had a negative impact on the food chain [for] white working boys,” Rayner conceded.

However, rather than denounce the various ‘No Whites’ internships and training programmes which have been introduced by public broadcasters, police forces, and so on using the so-called ‘positive action’ clauses in Britain’s equality legislation, Ms. Rayner chose to blame white “culture”.

The white working class, she claimed, “have not been able to adapt” to modern, multicultural Britain.

“Culturally, we are not telling them that they need to learn and they need to aspire.

“They are under the impression that they don’t need to push themselves in the way that maybe the disadvantaged groups had to before.

“I think that is why there is a bit of a lag there. I think we need to do much more about the culture of white working class in this country.”

As well as introducing legislation allowing employers to discriminate against whites and proposing preferential treatment for ethnic minority criminals said to be victims of “institutional racism”, the British political class and criminal justice establishment have also appeared reluctant to act when white working class people become victims of targeted abuse by other groups.

For example, the abuse of thousands of predominantly white, working-class girls in towns and cities across the United Kingdom by predominantly Pakistani Muslim abusers was ignored by police, social workers, and other figures of authority — who feared being labelled “racist” — for years.

Meanwhile, the gangs themselves were deemed officially “not racist” by judges in at least one major court case, despite one abuser having previously told a female ticket inspector: “White women are good for only one thing – for people like me to fuck and use as trash.”

A recent investigation by the counter-extremism think tank Quilliam found that some 84 per cent of groomers convicted in Britain are ‘Asian’, with an overwhelming majority of their victims being white.
