BAME and its place in the British Society.
Warning: This post is sensitive and has more questions than answers.
Let’s address the elephant in the room – BREXIT plus the recently concluded American elections with Donald Trump and his gospel of ‘America First’ in combination with the wind of political change suddenly blowing from left to right has meant that the topic of Immigration hangs in the air like a thick fog.
There’s a fancy new word (acronym) for people from ethnic minority backgrounds called BAME. Well, I guess everything needs a new acronym these days; I call them ‘Quantifiers’; LGBT, LGBQT, POC etc.
BAME which simply stands for Black Asian and Minority Ethnic group is currently used to ‘quantify’ people from non-white backgrounds. So if you ain’t white, and/or identify with one other non-white background you are BAME.
