So basically I live in Belfast and have just realised I have hardly ever met anyone who isn't white. Belfast is not incredibly diverse as there's been incidents of racism from paramilitaries and our history doesn't make it a popular city for immigrants and all but Ive actually only spoken to two black people in my life and only one has been a friend. In my year of over 100 there is one Asian guy. There's over a 1000 in the school and probably about 3 black people and about 5 Asians and that is it.
It's so stupid. I live in a big city but it is incredibly insular. Am I missing out as I've never experienced diversity?

It's not really your fault if the place where you live isn't diverse as long as you don't let it affect your thoughts on other races/cultures when you're inexperienced.

Hey there, my name's Hashim, and I will be your token Asian friend for the rest of your life or mine, whichever comes first.

Now you do.

Why do you feel this requires you to make a thread about it?

Because I think it's sad that I live in such a insular place that is stuck in the 1690s.

So you think it's someone's fault or a specific group of people's fault that this place you are from Belfast is not as multicultural as some other cities in the British Isles? You think it's somehow intentionally been kept non multicultural ?

That's sort of racism.
I once said that myself until I realised that there's no ****ing difference between asians, indians or black people. Every person is "diverse" in their own way and I don't think that having a non-white friend would bring anything different to your life.

But I understand you, I really do.

I don't think you know what racism is.

I don't think so. I feel like diversity in the UK is a failed experiment and it brings way more disadvantages than advantages. That's just my opinion though.
