Because generally Whites aren't a minority in this country. Those societies are for minorities to get together with other people from their country and bond over that.

In regards to your OP, surely there's no need for one?

That's more of an observation than a spam.

But in regards to your OP, surely there's no need for one?

Why is there no need for one? The same question could be asked of any of the other race based societies.

The answer's fairly obvious, whites arent a minority in the UK.
They are in some areas.

You don't really need a society for majority groups.

Whites are a minority in London and the BBC announced it by praising the diversity.

There are. There is politics, and shooting, and rugby.

It's a way of meeting other people of the same minority.

This makes no sense though really, for two reasons.

A multicultural society is apparently the aim of the game at the moment. Minority societies only serve to create segregation amongst people.

Also, just because someone is of the same race doesn't mean you will get along. The diversity of interests of people of the same race is as great as the diversity of interests of all people. Yes, you can take a stereotype such as Indians loving cricket, but surely you'd join the Cricket Soc if that's where your passion is?

Don't even start me on Religious Socs. There are so many opportunities for people of faith to congregate that having them at universities creating further segregation is ridiculous.

PS, I'm not arguing at you specifically Shadowdweller, just at this notion.

Not true. 60% of London's residents are white.

I totally get your argument. I wasn't necessarily talking about cultural minorities, more the general concept, and why societies can be of use.

If you're the kind of person who'd be happy to say, "I'm in the White people's society," I guess none, but it sounds pretty repugnant to me.

And on a realistic level, what would you create one for, anyway? Please explain what a White society would involve, since you find it strange that there aren't more of them.

I think basing any society on ethnic purity is a fundamentally bad idea.
