First published in News

A theology student has been named as one of the country’s top black students.

University of Oxford student Tyrone Steele, from Cowley, was ranked second in the Rare Rising Star Awards, which recognise the achievements of the top 10 black students across the country.

The Oxford-born Pembroke College student had previously served as a member on the Youth Parliament and as Young Mayor for the City of Oxford.

The 21-year-old is passionate about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) issues and hopes to highlight this by organising a London conference this year.

Surely this is racist !! on the basis that if you are not black you cannot be considered.Imagine if an award was given and only white people could be considered.

This goes on all the time, it seems it is ok to discriminate against whites. You have a Black police association, Muslim society in the work place. It seems that anyone can represent a white person, however blacks or Muslims can only be represented by their own kind.

This is really getting silly. Awards for working single mothers , awards for black students...surely they are just as good as any other person...what is this country getting so silly on whether or gay, white, straight, bi, single parent etc.... surely all people from all backgrounds should be treated equally.
