a Seattle federal judge ruled against it.

LONDON cheap nike air vapormax 2018 womens , Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Only 3.4 percent of Britain's most powerful and influential people are from black and minority ethnic groups, the Guardian newspaper reported Monday, citing an analysis highlighting startling inequality despite decades of British legislation to address discrimination.


From a list of just over 1,000 political, financial, judicial, cultural and security figures drawn up by the Guardian in partnership with Operations Black Vote and in consultation with academics nike air vapormax 2018 womens sale , only 36 were from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME).


The proportion of women from black and minority ethnic backgrounds on the list of Britain's most powerful people is 0.7 percent, representing a grand total of seven, said the newspaper.


The numbers betray a disconnection with the composition of the UK population, 12.9 percent of whom have an ethnic minority background. In some sectors -- the politics, the military, the supreme court and the security services nike air vapormax 2018 womens , as well as top consultancies and law firms -- there were no non-white people in position of leadership.


The analysis looked at the ethnicity of 1,049 people across 30 categories covering politics and the civil service, policing, defence and the judiciary, stock exchange companies and business, professional services including the heads of law, accountancy cheap nike air vapormax 2018 mens , advertising, consulting and publishing firms, arts bodies, the media, trade unions, top universities, sporting bodies nike air vapormax 2018 mens sale , and health and medical services.


"The results call into question the effectiveness of legislation such as the 2000 Race Relations Act and 2010 Equality Act," the newspaper added.

ANKARA, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Monday that Ankara will now only be in contact with the Iraqi central government on matters of oil, airports and borders after the Kurdish independence referendum in northern Iraq.


Speaking in a televised interview with local broadcaster CNN Turk, Yildirim said Ankara is evaluating steps regarding its border gates and air space in response to the Iraqi Kurdish referendum being held on Monday.


The prime minister said that the Turkish military drill ongoing near its Iraqi and Syrian border in the past week was regarded as precaution measures.


Iraqi forces will also join the military exercises near its border, he said, adding that Turkey are now working in coordination with Baghdad in the face of any "possibility nike air vapormax 2018 mens ," and would provide support to Baghdad if requested.


Yildirim noted that Turkey would "not go to war," but they were taking cross-border precautions on issues of importance to the country.

RIO DE JANEIRO, April 14 (Xinhua) -- A football television commentator in Brazil has been arrested on racism charges after allegedly calling a player a monkey, according to media reports.


Lourival Santos, from the television channel Rede Massa cheap nike air vapormax 2018 , is accused of making the comments during a match between Londrina and Maringa in the Parana state league on Sunday.
