Civil rights activist the Reverend Jesse Jackson has said West Midlands Police would benefit from having more senior officers from ethnic minorities.
The 71-year-old was speaking during a visit to Birmingham's new library.
Although West Midlands Police's deputy police and crime commissioner, Yvonne Mosquito, is black, there is an all-white command team.
Mr Jackson fought for civil rights in the USA, including the right to vote, alongside Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
