Default Labour charge white members more than non-whites

Quote:
Jeremy Corbyn faced a race row last night for making white people pay more than ethnic minorities to hear him deliver a speech.

The dispute erupted over a decision by Labour chiefs to charge black and ethnic minority activists £10 less per ticket than white activists to attend a rally next month.

Tory MPs last night accused Labour of racism and said it was further evidence that the party had abandoned the white working class.

Labour officials defended the decision to make white party members pay £40 to attend the East Midlands Labour gathering in Loughborough on February 17.

In contrast, the charge for black and minority ethnic (BAME) members is £30.

A Labour spokesman said: ‘The basic price of a conference pass is the same for all members but, at the request of our East Midlands Regional Board, the party will subsidise part of the cost of this year’s conference pass for BAME members to encourage attendance and improve representation.’

They'll have probably been advised that their BAME members tend to come from poorer/impoverished areas, so it's an attempt to bridge that. Bear in mind tiered pricing occurs for many other things based on things people cannot control, such as their age or if they're disabled - I don't think it's automatically discrimination to do so but can be simply price weighted against ability to pay in many cases.

All that being said, in this particular case I think it's a bad idea. It seems like a case of their heart being in the right place, but not their brain. Trying to reach out to under-represented demographics is one thing, but could be approached better, this feels divisive and opposite to the overall goal they have, which is about people being united regardless of colour, creed etc.

It's bullshit and quite probably illegal as well. It is straight up discrimination against white people on the grounds of race. No matter how you dress it up.

It's not as if there aren't plenty of dirt poor whites who support Labour, nor is it the case that all 'BAME' members will be poorer than all white supporters.

Yeah I do believe this is a mistake personally, although I doubt they will lose any votes over it, given their voting demographic.

I'm still pro-Corbyn though, he's an infinitely better option than the Tories IMHO.

Is concessionary pricing for students and pensioners 'straight up discrimination' against people who don't fall into either camp?

In an ideal world, I guess everything would be means tested. My parents for example get free bus passes because they are over 65, but they are not poor and don't need them at all, that government money would be better utilised on a young person who is struggling for money and would benefit from a free bus pass to get to work or whatever. But that's impossibly hard and expensive to administer so not practical.
