CAMERON "PM" AN EX-OLD BOY STIRS THE POSSUM AT OXFORD


OXFORD AND RACISM IN THE SAME SENTENCE




David Cameron has raised hackles at Oxford University with a comment about its numbers of black students.
Speaking at a PM Direct event in North Yorkshire, he said: "I saw figures the other day that showed that only one black person went to Oxford last year. I think that is disgraceful. We have got to do better than that."
But Oxford accused Cameron of quoting an "inaccurate and highly misleading" figure. The university's admissions figures for 2009 show that just one "black Caribbean" candidate was accepted for undergraduate study, out of 27 black students in that year's intake.
Last autumn, seven black Caribbean candidates were accepted and there were a total of 20 black students in this year's intake.
Oxford is happy to have the figures of 20 and 27 for black students!
Oxford's own data showed that the next largest ethnic group after white students was students with an Indian background, of whom 77 were admitted. A total of 2,653 students were accepted for undergraduate study in 2009, of whom 2,316 were defined as white.

He added that the top universities did not have a good record when it came to admitting students from state schools, saying the numbers had gone down in the last 20 years. "That is a terrible record," he told the audience.
YOU CAN'T MEAN HE WAS ONE OF US ONCE.
GOODNESS ME!
 HE CAN'T TALK ABOUT US LIKE THAT!
