Do you think Asian Businessmen and Women are discriminated against in the UK?
We're asking this because the Liberal Democrat's deputy Leader Simon Hughes has said he thinks banks are making racist decisions on who to lend to. He claims that a white person with a worse financial reputation is more likely to get a loan for his business than someone from an ethnic minority.
What do you think about that? Has that ever happened to you? Is it just banks, do you think that Asians are discriminated against when doing businesses generally. Have you ever lost out to a white competitor when you were the better person? Have you had your career blocked by racism? Do you ever think that it's because Asian businesses may be just less reliable? Be honest, have you ever chosen a white competitor above an Asian because you think you might get better service?
Or if you do the reverse, is that better or worse? If you ONLY do business with Asians is that as bad as those who you consider to be racist? Is it just that people like doing business with people like themselves? Is that racist or just human nature?
And after 2 - From Slough to Soldier is a series of short films about two Sikhs who want to become serving members of the British Army. Nihal will be speaking to the people behind the films.
