According to a poll conducted by Ipsos MORI, a Britain-based research company, white people are far less likely to mix with ethnic minorities than vice- versa.
Seventy percent of Britons surveyed do not have close friendships with people from different ethnic backgrounds, it revealed.
The poll, carried out to launch the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE)’s race convention, showed that immigration and race relations are the biggest concerns facing people in Britain.
“Race and immigration has moved from the margins to the mainstream and is now the number one issue,” said Trevor Phillips, the chair of the CRE.
