I've got an uncle who's one. I've also got a friend whose uncle is one.
And I remember 2 at university.

I find it hard to believe that I know of 8% of the black uni professors in this country....

Maybe they did over-exaggerate the numbers. But I can believe that Universities are reluctant to hire as many black professors as there are who are qualified for the role.

I had 1 and she had a bitter attitude... Fair play she was a CEO of 4 companies, an Auther and a lecturer but she reminded us of this every day.

She was my leaste favourite lecturer and she had a wierd way of treating people in her racial group.

But apparently a lesser qualified lecturer got the Job of Dean at the university and she hated this coz the guy was white.

They are achieving. The article is about whether qualified professors are being hired or not.

She brought up race alot within the lesson and she hated white men.
She used to hate it when they used ebonics but usually they did it to wind her up.
She thought she was superiour to other blacks because she went further in life and she couldn't accept people who thought the subject was boring.

Well my lecturer seemed to think so... She was probably right but id bet she would get the job if she dropped her attitude.

What's the black (not including Asian/Indian) population of the UK? Maybe 2 - 3 percent at most? And how many of that percentage have actually been to university, never mind teach there?
So what's the f*cking surprise if the percentage ratio is reflected in this shite? You f*ckers are so stupid it's a shame, moaning about this bollocks, expecting the same level of representation as in the US with such a tiny slice of the whole population.

Blunt Mocker, if you don't like the topics black people discuss, don't come to black forums, troll, is it that difficult? Get a life you saddo!! And try sticking to one username. And finally, stop swinging on the Revolutionist's nut sack. He isn't gay like you.

I didn't know he had a nutsack to swing on, I thought he removed it to preserve his purity in case a white woman looked at it. You slagfuck.

I agree..........

I can't believe that the UK won't lower the testing standards to allow more blacks jobs. In America we lower the bar, so, blacks can have the American dream.
