Chinese and Indian ethnic group workers have higher average earnings than their white British counterparts, the first official figures on the issue show.

In 2018, employees from the Chinese ethnic group earned 30.9% more than white British employees.


Lads, what are we going to do about the so-called "yellow menace" before they take over? All this time we've been focusing on class!

This isn't anything new, but infoirmation that is regularly hand waved aside because it undermines the idea that we are all a bunch of secret racists.

>All this time we've been focusing on class!

It actually has a huge amount to do with class. The kind of immigrant who came to Britian from India and China was usually middle class. Their children are middle class. If you didn't count the working class amoung the white people in this country their wages would go up by 30% too.

And how does that divide by gender? Do yellow birds get paid more than white birds? Is there still a gender pay gap in this ethnic group?

I'm not really surprised. Speaking in broad stereotypes and truisms, Chinese parents have a reputation for pushing their kids hard (or at least harder than white brits) in school and other studies like piano and that. And Indian immigrants are overwhelmingly business owners and really rather enterprising. And as >>19612 says, you don't really get poor migrants from these particular countries.

Why do/did you only get middle class migrants from these countries? People never explain why when discussing these things and I never know why because I feel like providing the full context helps to cut through the racist bullshit and expose statistical racial differences as based on socioeconomic factors.

India and China have fairly good opportunities locally for the middle-class and reasonably good social mobility in the cities. The very poorest migrate internally to the big cities, where they stand a fairly good chance of making a better life; we generally get the people who are already doing pretty well for themselves at home but see even better opportunities abroad. Indian and Chinese emigrants are generally highly educated professionals with reasonable English literacy skills, or entrepreneurs with financial backing from their extended family.

In other parts of the world, that's not the case - conditions are so hopeless that most people will do anything to escape, so we get a wider social mix, often with a fairly poor overall level of education. Bangladesh is much poorer than India and China, so we see a lot of desperate people who get trafficked into the UK to work illegally; laplanderstan is somewhere in the middle.

Can I now go around asking Indians and Chinamen to check their privilege?

No. The important thing to take away is that white earnings are still 3.8% higher than those of ethnic minorities. This is a disgrace.

How confident are you in your ability to know your Chinks from your Dinks, Chonks, Nips, Gooks, Japs, Slit-Eyes, Charlies, Flips, Indons, Kimchis, Nips, Pancakes, Sideways Vaginas, Slopes, Ting Tongs and Zipperheads?

So it's settled, clear as day: awarding women equal or higher pay in relation to men will be the downfall of any race.

Huh, this tallies with my personal experience. Rich Indians I've met living in north London are well-spoken, while laplanderstanis I've met, well, everywhere have broken English.

Although >>19617 is a good post they have left out several key events as motivators.

1) The largest migration of black immigrants to the country was from the "Windrush generation" which is where we purposely incentivized for manual laborer to come over from the Caribbean.

2)A large number of Indian Migrants were linked to the British Raj in some way so bureaucrats, various people related to the state. And those who had some level of existing integration with the British rulling class.

3)A large number of Chinese immigrants came over when Mao started culling the intelligentsia and bureaucracy.

We also had another wave of Chinese immigration around the handover of Hong Kong. Again it was mainly the liberal intelligentsia who saw the writing on the wall. The reason the elite classes in Hong Kong are now pro-Beijing is that they've effectively been hollowed out, which in turn has made it easier for the CPC to rig the system. The legislature is like the Lords and Commons rolled into one, with a mixture of elected and appointed members. The pro-Beijing faction has never won an electoral mandate, and has instead been able to maintain a majority by manipulating the numbers and packing the benches with appointees.

I'm not surprised. £2.50 I paid last night for prawn crackers.

I feel the need to add to your points that Bangladeshi and laplanderstani immigrants also tended to migrate towards the industrial centres of Britain. The result is they were hit especially hard by de-industrialisation and the effect continues as ethnic groups tend toward lumping together.

Obviously the solution is to breakup ethnic enclaves and probably let in more Asians as they're an okay sort.

We do need to have a word about this.

Your average generic curry house/shit kebabs/shit pizza takeaway offers free delivery over £10. All the Chinese takeaways round here want £3 for delivery no matter what. And that's after they're done charging you £6-7 per dish for a generic stir fry in various different sauces.

They're robbing fucking bastards.
