    It could be based on a lot of factors, not just skin colour. Correlation not entailing causation, etc.

    Usually a case of failing student leaning on the race card. I'm sure this instance is no different.

    It doesn't convince me a great deal. There's no out-and-out proof, no interviews with the parties involved or anything like that. It just seems like a lot of supposition to me. If this all was true, there would be a far, far greater scandal than one lone Youtube video.

    It's old and ********. Just some failing final year student using the race card. loooool at all you dumbasses falling for this crap.

    I know a guy who just graduated from the King's EMDP course this year and he's black, he said he loved the course and was never treated second class with all the other med students on other programmes (5 year and GEP), the teachers and everyone are very supportive too.

    Doesn't seem like they're being racist at all, just aggressive to those from deprived backgrounds. If the majority of the students accepted in the first place were black then obviously it's going to be about harassment of black people, but that doesn't make it racist. Still shameful though.

    This is such ********. Getting better grades doesn't mean you automatically deserve a place on a medical course more than others, there are many more factors. They have absolutely no proof for this 'stigma' or the 'segregation' or the 'bullying'. What students would actually do this? And what students would allow this sort of thing to go on? All we have to go on is this video. Also, why did she apply for the EMDP if she didn't want to go on the course? There might be some isolated pockets of racism I wouldn't know, but something this widespread wouldn't have gone unnoticed.
