RCGP accused of discriminating against ethnic minority candidates in MRCGP legal case

Comment

I honestly couldn't care less that the non UK born IMGs are faring badly compared to their British counterparts because that can be easily explained away by language,cultural and educational differences.What is of more concern and something that hasn't been adequately explained is the presence of a significant gap between UK born white and UK born non-white graduates.I have yet to meet a single UK born non white graduate whose first language was not english.In fact quite a few of them,like their white counterparts, have been to public school.So using language in this case as an excuse doesn't wash.Assuming that these statistics are valid and not just a false positive there is a system bias somewhere.
