Kann mir bitte jemand helfen, bei der Aussprache ? Hab morgen eine Klausur (mündlich). Ist die Ausdrucksweise richtig ?
In the last lessons we learned about 'ethnic minorities' in the UK.
One topic was about Leicester, a city in the East Midlands.
I'll explain why Leicester is perhaps the most multicultural city in Europe.
People in Britain also call it 'Little India'.
But why they call it "Little india" ?
Its because Leicester has the largest Indian population in Great Britain.
According to the last population census by ethnic origin in 2011 there are living 28.3% Indians.
The white Britishes are 45.1%. But if you sum up the other foreigeners, than 54.1% of the resistens in Leicester are non-white.
That means, that there is a non-white majority. Furthermore, it is the only English city which has two Indian politicians. One of them is Keith Vaz. Keith Vaz has been Member of Parliament for Leicester East since 1987. He is the longest-serving Asian MP and has been the Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee since July 2007. He was appointed as a member of the Privy Council in June 2006. He has been named among the most influential Asians in Britain.
Its population is projected, by government figures, to become within a decade, the first British city with a non-white majority.
You might think the racial tensions and incidents that spread across Northern Europe and America would be especially present here.
Leicester could be a hot bed of racism, but actually it isn't.
Leicester defines itself as the most tolerant and multicultural city of Europe.
Rather the gouvernment celebrated its diversity of people who live there and they are proud of them.
In 2004 the gouvernment started a campaign which is called "Leicester Revealed" to improve the image and perceptions of Leicester.
The aim was to challenge negative perceptions of Leicester.
The campaign also revealed a new identity mark for Leicester - the word 'Leicester' with an exclamation mark stamped over the letter i, suggesting there's more to Leicester than people might think.
Leicester is not just a traditional city with its Victorian clocktower, medieval timbered buildings and Roman ruins. It is also proud of its diversity of people from different countries from all over the world.
For the British-White-Citizens in Leicester it's normal to eat Indian food.
The British adopted curry as one of their national dishes.
The British are addiceted to the spicy taste of curry because it stimulates the senses and provides a natural high.
As an example for a successful integration is Jitendra Vaitha, a jeweler in Leicester.
He originates from India. He as an immigrant, has got white British employees.
For the Britishes in Leicester its normal to work for an employer like Jitendra Vaitha.
All in all, theese are the most important reasons why Leicester is perhaps the most multicultural city in Europe, and to me, i'm agrreing this statement.
