    Is there any racism in Leicester?

    Been told there is tensions between the Asian and black communities there.

    I can't speak for the whole of Leicester but at University of Leicester its very ethnically diverse and I have never got the impression that racism was a problem.

    Nah, haven't had a single racist experience at Leicester (as an Indian). Like the other poster has said, it's very ethnically diverse and there's a large no. of black and Asian people at the university anyway. Black people tend to cluster, as do Asians but whatever tension (if any) wouldn't be a race issue

    First time hearing this- absolutely not true. It's quite a harmonious city, unlike other cities where there are gangs etc.

    There's no tension and everyone's really nice/friendly.

    Was a fresher in 2015/16, lived in oadby, couldn't have had a more diverse flat if I planned it but was the best group of people, no racism at all - no racial tensions of any sort within the flat, within the uni or on nights out in the city itself. Is the same everywhere from what I hear from course mates and team mates
