UK Labour Candidate Runs On There Being "Too Many White Men" Working For City

There are too many "white men" working for the city of London's transport board, so says Labour's mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.

Their skin color alone evidently means they're neglecting the needs of women and minorities.

London's transport authority is far too dominated by white men, Labour's mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan said today.

There are currently 13 white men on the Transport for London board and just three women. Khan said he would ensure the board better reflected the "diversity" of Londoners if he becomes mayor.

"I will reshape TfL's board," he said during a speech in Brixton this morning.

"It needs to better reflect London's diversity in the interest of Londoners. Did you know there are 16 people on the board of TfL?

"Thirteen of them are white men. Thirteen. Think about it . It only has three women on it. That's less than one in five. "

He suggested the needs of women and ethnic minorities were being neglected as a result.

"Women face specific challenges on our transport network that are not currently being addressed. I was appalled about the recent decision by British transport police to scrap the sexual violence unit. Reports of sexual offences on the London Underground almost tripled over the past five years. As mayor I will take these problems seriously."
As The New Observer notes, "What Kahn failed to point out was that the rise in sexual assaults on the London Underground service has closely paralleled the demographic shift in London to a majority nonwhite population."

The country of Sweden is similarly suffering under a rape epidemic ever since opening their borders to mass immigration in the 1970's.

When a 60 Minutes film crew tried to film in one of the country's "no go-zones" last month, they were violently assaulted by "North African Migrants."

The demographics in London have similarly shifted dramatically. The most popular baby boy's name is now Muhammad.

When the pro-British group Britain First held a protest outside of a London Mosque earlier this month they were assaulted, spat on, and had bottles thrown at them. Rather than the authorities coming to their aid, they pushed to have the group banned from protesting in the area, saying their "passive protest" was "provoking" the local Muslim population.

Actor John Cleese five years ago lamented that London was no longer "English."

"I don't know what's going on in London," he said after being asked to comment on the 2011 riots, "London is no longer an English city."

"They said we were the most cosmopolitan city on Earth. But it doesn't feel English."

"I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King's Road and say, 'Where are all the English people?'"

"I mean, I love having different cultures around. But when the parent culture kind of dissipates, you're left thinking, 'Well, what's going on?'"

Regardless of the changing demographics throughout Europe, that a candidate would feel comfortable running a campaign on there being "too many white men" on a transportation board is highly disturbing and shows a shockingly racist double standard.

If a white candidate ran on there being too many "black men" on a transportation board he'd be demonized as a racist bigot, yet when white men are discriminated against based purely off their skin color no one bats and eye.
