    From Wikipedia:

    "At the date of the last census, there were 87 people of Afro-Caribbean origin in Southampton."

    Ooh, that's a shame. Only 87 Black people in the whole of Southampton. Looks like you're not going to.... fit in.

    Yes, for gods sake. There are Black people in every big city in England!

    Well actually wikipedia says 1% black.

    Which out of 228000 isn't actually that many black people. If OP is happy with 2280 black people in the city, then that's fine, but it's not a substantial, or even a reasonable population. I couldn't imagine living in a place with only 2280 Asian people.

    If you go in to a Uni with a "Are there other people with the same skin tone as me?" attitude then you're setting yourself hurdles...

    I don't understand what difference it makes. Can you only interact with black people?

    Why does it matter if there are a lot of black people or only a few? All you're doing is making racial tensions...

    You don't want to be a racial minority. yet you live in a country when at least 93% of the country is white?

    Good luck with that.

    I never said you were racist. Also, what's wrong with being a minority within a certain place? I find that sort of thinking is what causes racial tension.

    LOL! As someone pointed out already the majority of the UK is white... so you always will be in the minority. But what should race etc matter? It's the individual that counts. Go to uni with an open mind not one thats tilting in the direction of becoming friends with your 'own' first...

    I'm from Southampton, there are lots of black people... the more 'student' areas and the city centre seem to be very culturally diverse... dunno why it matters but hope that helps
