It's a good question.

Probably for a similar reason there is a black officer, but none for other minorities.

Have never heard of an officer specifically for black people at any uni, bar one.

When there's are an officer for ethnic minorities, it will be one for all ethnic minorities, not just black people.

Stop making things up.

Lol I knew you were gonna do this. Thank you for proving my point.

So of the unis there I see 2 black officer roles, and one that is a ethnic minorities officer but has been mistakenly called a black officer.

There are 106 unis in the UK, so that means only 2% of unis specifically have a black officer position.

So I was right, you were spreading misinformation in your initial post suggesting that the black officer role is more prevalent than an ethnic minorities officer role, and unis dont care about ethnic minorities other black people (which also in reality doesnt make any sense, given south asians are the largest ethnic group after whites in the uk).

Good day

And you dont see a problem just calling any minorities officer a black officer? I'm fully aware that black officers usually do represent more than just black students (often including south asians), in theory.

No. Do I really have to go through every single university to prove that it is common, if not the majority? You also missed the point that the official NUS architecture includes one.

I've given plenty of examples, including the NUS website, to show that a black officer (rather than a minorities officer) appears to be the norm. What do you have to back up your assertion? I'm perfectly happy to accept that a ethnic minorities officer is the norm, but I've yet to see anything to suggest this.

It's not that universities don't care about other minorities (even having an officer doesnt show they care), but that having your apparent representative named exclusively after another minority, is simply not representation.
