In sign of the UK’s rapidly shifting demography, according to Birmingham Live news site – the country’s second largest city, Birmingham, is a now a non-white majority city.
A report released by Birmingham council the changing ethnic makeup of Birmingham is analysed. The fastest growing group in the city is the Muslim population of South Asian origin and over 47,000 residents of the city do not speak English.
Birmingham joins the UK’s largest city and capital, London, where the white population is now a minority in the greater metropolitan area and white British make up and even smaller minority with that grouping.
Birmingham, like London and many other British cities, has serious issues with ghettoization and inter-ethnic tensions.
There is widespread disaffection within the city’s Muslim population. Many people are concerned that support for terrorism and radical Islam could grow in the Muslim community in the city as general crime, particularly drug dealing, is already exceptionally prevalent.
Ethnically British people and then white people in general are expected to become a minority in the UK by the 2060’s or sooner if present trends continue.
