Affirmative action policies designed to help the poor of ALL ethnic groups. If we want “national unity”.

Also, respect for the values and cultures of minority ethnic groups.

When people are treated unfairly, resentment builds up and “national unity” is a pipe dream. Simple as that.

Otherwise why do so many of our people emigrate to other countries (where people are treated more fairly, in spite of the internal problems of these countries)? And why do people from the Middle East and North Africa flee to Welfare States such as Germany, Sweden etc ?
