The UK Prime minister have criticized Oxford saying that only one black person went to Oxford last year. He said: I saw figures the other day that showed that only one black person went to Oxford last year. I think that is disgraceful, we have got to do better than that. As a five-minute glance at the Oxford University website reveals, Oxford actually admitted at least 20 black British students last year. And thats only the number to have actually told Oxford their ethnicity. Last year by a Labour MP claimed to have discovered (presumably also by visiting Oxfords website) that just one British black Caribbean student was admitted to Oxford in 2009. The MP's claim was subsequently discredited as it emerged quite how selective he had been with his statistics. Oxford University has now responded. They point out that Oxford admitted 41 British undergraduates from black backgrounds in 2009 and that 22 per cent of Oxford students are from ethnic minority backgrounds. A spokesperson from the university said: The figure quoted by the Prime Minister is incorrect and highly misleading. Ouch.
