Speaking about his latest controversial column : "Pale, stale males are the last group it's OK to vilify," Jenkins claimed that black women were now being given an unfair advantage over people such as himself.
"If you're looking at being selected for NGOs and important jobs and so on, the best thing you can possibly be at the moment is a black woman," he told Talk Radio's Sam Delaney.
"You just slide into it. I've got experience of this."
He added: "I do sometimes feel a bit like it must have been like to be a black person 20 or 30 years ago."
