European Commission Vows to Make EU Institutions More Racially ‘Diverse’

The EU Commission will “fight” to make European institutions more racially diverse, its spokesman has said.

In an interview with France24 on Monday, Margaritis Schinas was challenged by the left-wing state-owned news channel on a lack of racial diversity in European institutions, the Commission’s plans for a bloc-wide migration policy, and on the treatment of illegal immigrant “children” in Greece.

Noting the death of American George Floyd, protests against which have sparked weeks-long protest and violence in cities across the West, interviewer Catherine Nicholson lamented that Europe has not yet appointed a black commissioner.

She added that less than five per cent of Members of the European Parliament come from a non-European racial background.

Schinas said that EU nations have “a strong tradition of protecting minorities”, but noted that Brussels’ “competition-based” system for selecting commissioners makes it difficult for ethnic groups to have representation exactly equal to their demographic proportions.
