[Homework]2013-05-11 移民改变人口构成 英国白人成少数名族

HW
The makeup of many areas in England and Wales is changing. Almost half of people from ethnic 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 in here are traditional English people, they become, like, you know, neddles in the haystack, so to speak.
--I don't see those so many people, white people go outside.

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

--Our family just moved, almost most of my family moved away because of it. They moved attitude && break stagnum...
--Why's that?
--Because they feel they're minority now.
--I just love the veraties of nationalities and different thing organizaitons people have.

When Philips was the head of the commission for racial equality, he gave this warning:
--We're sleep walking away to segregation.
That speech was made 8 years ago.

--We all see as much  great concentration in some of the towns and cities, and I think that's something we should worried about. As recently as 2001, the law censors found only 25 percent of the ethnic minority popuplation, one million people, 25 percent of much smaller of ethnic minority population than lived in the areas the marjority minority were, the white British popultaion were among minority. Any 25 percent, it's gone from 25 percent to 45 percent in just 10 years.

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