A "retreat" of white Britons from areas where minorities live is limiting cultural integration, according to research by think tank Demos. Analysis of the 2011 census shows that 45% of ethnic minorities in England and Wales live in areas where less than half the population is white British, while 41% live in wards that are less than half white. Trevor Phillips, former chairman of the Equalities Commission and Demos Associate, said white Britons choosing not to live in minority-dominated areas "ought to make us a little anxious". He said: "This very interesting piece of research reveals a number of vital findings about how people in England and Wales are living together. "What ought to make us a little anxious is the 'majority retreat' it has unearthed - white people leaving minority-led areas and not being replaced - which isn't good news for the cause of integration."

So what say you ATS, is this a problem that needs to be addressed, or is it more of the PC agenda, which has no grounding in reality

Integration has to be partially forced, sadly but human nature abhors change and difference.

what they really should do if they want to see what is what, is track down and interview those that have left said areas. find out WHY they have left.
