Article on BME inequality by Sadiq Khan MP

Having read this article on BME inequality by Sadiq Khan MP, one is forced to conclude that post-war immigration has not been a success:  http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/give-black-and-asian-people-a-better-deal-says-sadiq-khan-9375890.html

One cannot ignore the decry effects of poverty among BME and non-BME people alike, but the thought is nevertheless insistent - would we not be a more equal society if post-war immigration had not happened?

By importing millions of impoverished people from the third world, has the effect not been to entrench inequality when it might have been eradicated by now?

By continuing to import impoverished people are we not moving further and further away from the goal of equality?
