In a BBC Newsbeat article published last year, several interviewees said they would rather not be labelled as BAME.
Nicole Miners, 24, said: “Being a British East Asian actor, or just a person, this was something that really aggravated me.
“The ‘A’ in ‘BAME’ means Asian, which, in itself, is a very broad term. Does it mean ‘South Asian’, ‘East Asian’, ‘South East Asian’, ‘Indian’, ‘Pakistani’, ‘Chinese’, ‘Thai’, ‘Vietnamese’? The list goes on.
“It misleads people into thinking that everyone who isn’t white English should come under the term BAME. And on top of that, I’m mixed, which, for me, is even more confusing.”
