Being British-Asian in a majority white neighbourhood in Yorkshire for all my life is pretty much all I know. Like our neighbours are really cool, a lot of my friends are white and I don't feel like I've been treated differently. I feel London Asians are stuck in this bubble and you guys need to get out more. If you're not used to seeing white people or even being friends with white people you should seriously consider moving elsewhere imho.

As an Asian i have lived in a very white neighbourhood for most of my life and all the people are lovely. My college is also very white and thankfully i've always found it easy to make friends and integrate into their society....
As a muslim i do notice differences in peoples attitudes (due to the stigma around Islam). I still feel content in my society but i notice that peoples views at college can be anti-islam and anti-immigration ect, which makes me feel awkward 😞.
Though i have never experinced first-hand racism.Last edited by Zara0526; 12-06-2016 at 14:10.

Do you Asians feel comfortable living in the uk?
Do you only feel comfortable living in London and other Asian areas?
Would you ever consider moving to a majority white area?
Have you experienced any racism living here?
When you move house, do you always buy houses in other Asian communities?
2) No, prefer a healthy mix. Have lived in predominantly white, predominantly Asian and mixed ethnicity areas
3) Hmm, no. I wouldn't want to move to any majority areas
4) Plenty, both verbal and physical
5) Nope, living in a predominantly white area now for some reason

i don't know anyone who's experienced serious racism here

I have visited an area that would be considered to be mostly indian and Pakistani, and I did not feel comfortable.
I felt like an outsider, and I find such segregated communities to be strange

Yes I do
Don't live in london and my neighbourhood is about 75% white.
See above and yes I would.
Third time you've asked this. No, I/we don't.
Also Asians is a very vauge term. You're gonna get a plethora of answrrs from every different type of Asian. Indians will answer differently to Pakistanis, who will answer different to Chinese Asians.

I'm sure many of us, as we get older, are keen on moving away from majority Asian areas anyway. I personally don't want my children to be secluded from other ethnicities the way I have.
