    Only 50 out of 14,385 United Kingdom professors are black. They are alleging racism, and are demanding quotas to get more tenureships. However, currently it is illegal in Britain to hire someone on the basis of their skin color, so implementing affirmative action would require that parliament change the current law to allow preferential treatment for black academics.

    If the British lower their standards for hiring professors it would be a disaster for the university system. 50 may not seem like a large number but the statistics tell the real story. The majority of England's 1.7 million blacks originate from Sub-Saharan Africa and the Carribbean, where the average IQ for blacks is around 70. If we assume that around a third of England's blacks average about 85 IQ because of mixed race parentage with whites, then the overall average for blacks in would be about 80. Compare that with whites who average 100 and hold 94% of the professorships. If we lowball the estimate of a 120 IQ as the entry point to be a able to become a tenured professor at the university level, a bell curve calculation reveals that only .4% or 6800 blacks have the requisite base line IQ. Of those, many are too young or old for the work force, and of the remaining many would be pursuing careers in business, medicine, engineering and other lucrative paths, not academia. 50 is a pretty significant number when blacks in the 120 range are a needle in a haystack, so there is no reason to conclude that the schools are practicing racism.

    Affirmative action has compromised academic standards in America to the detriment of all students black and white, the British should not make the same mistake and should refuse to give in to the pressure to compromise their high quality of education. If blacks truly feel they have suffered discrimination then let them sue and prove it in court.

    It's sad that there are people who support taking skin color into account. Enlightened people realize that our priorities should strictly be looking at peoples' qualifications.

    old story, not enough capable blacks to go around. MIT alone accepts more blacks every year than there are blacks countrywide scoring high enough to get in without affirmative action (drastically lower qualifications).

    AA has not only been a detriment to education in this country....it has been a detriment to everything and everyone, especially the ones it claims to help.

    Briton should stand its ground...of non discrimination or changing its laws to hire on the basis of skin color.

    At first liberals thought with forced intergration of blacks and whites in schools blacks abilitys would catch up to all other races.

    Now that liberals see that forced intergration has not changed a thing, the new way is to simply lower the standards of a civilized socity to accommodate black inferioritys.

    So I guess the conclusion of those who have posted before me is- that blacks are just genetically dumber than whites and without quotas and affirmative action they wouldn't be able to compete in the "white man's" world- is that the gist of you all's argument?

    That's not true at an individual level but at a group level blacks don't have the genetic profile for smart genes that whites do, so affirmative action is the only way to overcome it. No need to use pejoratives like dumb though.
