The War on Equality

Some facts in Black and White

David Gillborn

Professor of Critical Race Studies in Education

Institute of Education, London


“Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream.  We’ve failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong.  We’ve even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values.”

David Cameron, Munich Security Conference, February 2011


“So, when a white person holds objectionable views, racist views for instance, we rightly condemn them.  But when equally unacceptable views or practices come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious frankly – frankly, even fearful – to stand up to them.”

David Cameron, Munich Security Conference, February 2011
