提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
HOMEWORK

The makeup of many areas in England and Wales is changing. Almost half of people from esthetic minorities now live in areas where white British people are the minority. One of those areas is the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

“People that live here traditionally are English people, they have become like, you know, needles in a haystack, so to speak.”

“I don’t see there are so many people, lots of white people go outside.”

“In some areas, the pace of change is rapid. One of the reasons is because some British people who are white are choosing not to move to areas where they would be in the minority while others are choosing to move away.”

All my families just moved, most of my families have moved away because of it. They moved to Tilbreak, Diagnum, Visa.”

“Why is that?”

“Because of, because I feel like I’m minority now.”

“I just love the variety of nationalities and different organizations that people have.”

When Trevor Philips was head of the Commission for Racial Equality, he gave this warning:

“We are sleepwalking our way to segregation.”

That speech was made eight years ago.

“We are seeing as much great concentration in some of the towns and cities, and I think that is something we should worry about. As recent as in 2001, the last census found only 25% of the ethnic minority population, one million people, 25% of a much smaller ethnic minority population then lived in areas the majority minority were, where the white British population were a minority, only 25%. It’ gone up from 25% to 45% in just 10 years.”

The research also shows that some rural areas are becoming more diverse. It is another example of the changes happening across England and Wales.
