    You'd be better off joining a society that you're interested in to find more interesting people rather than trying to make friends with people in your class if you don't like them. I don't think the problem is that they're white because 'white' isn't a personality trait/type, you could try joining a more Asian uni but if you still don't make much effort outside of class then you won't make friends to be honest

    If the problem is that you just don't like white people then you're gonna have to either learn to like them or deal with it because you're never going to get a job as a nurse in the UK after you leave uni and not have to work with mostly white people as your coworkers and patients.

    It's a good thing you posted this anonymously. If you had posted this with your actual user name, people from your Uni might have thought "WHOAH... WHOAH... WHOAH. The dude is BROWN and goes to OUR UNIVERSITY?!?!?! I thought he was just really tan."

    Now you're safe from... People knowing that you're brown? I guess?

    On-topic, if you hate your uni, go to a different one. If white people have 'Dead banter', then move.

    I don't want to sound rude or anything but I'm Asian and I go to a uni where its 99% white. I'm the only Asian in my class, along with my friend. The people in my class are so boring, have dead banter, and just generally there's still that awkwardness there between the whole class even tho it's been 5 months into the course. It's not that I'm unfriendly, but outside the classroom I don't really feel like chilling with them, or even getting to know one of them on a level. If my friend wasn't with me, I probably would have dropped out.

    I don't know why, but I find it harder clicking with white people, their banter is dead and they're conversations are boring. I really hate going into lessons but like the course itself. Shall i transfer to A diff uni where there r more people I can click with More easily and socialise with. I hate going in because I don't like my class, the way they are, and their awkwardness
    their awkwardness

    So the first thing you think of is drugs when people talk? So... Just so I can get this straight. You're a stoner, racist brown dude in a place where the people you're racist against make up the majority?

    And you aren't happy?

    Hunh. That's shocking.

    Yeah definitely. They crack banter like "Ooh you're an eager beaver". Also one time someone said "I've done something very cheeky today", so when I asked what he did, he said "I went to Nandos".

    The people around laughed like no tomorrow at these 'joke', and I'm here laughing hysterically at the fact they found that joke funny.

    This is racist. If someone said 'Asians have dead banter' and that they're boring it would be considered racist. Stop being a racist ****

    Lmaoooooo hahahhahaaa LOOOOLLLL this is funny cuz I can relate badly, although I don't mind whites and sometimes prefer them, just cuz Asians come with too much drama, especially the girls, but it would be nice to know someone who just gets it and gets you instead of having to answer questions to 'do you sleep in ur headscarf?'

    what course u studying.

    [...] but I'm Asian [...]
    Oh, so are you of Japanese, Chinese, or Korean descent?

    Neither? You're Indian, Pakistani, or Bangladeshi? Then you're not Asian. Asians have almond-shaped eyes. Call yourself a Desi or 'from the sub-continent', please.

    True lol. One of the reasons why I find them so awkward is because they usually shy away from topics such as religion or race issues, even if they have questions, they won't really ask out of fear for offending or feeling awkward, whereas Asians and blacks will have no prob talking about it, so I find them more down to earth

    Omg, this is so flipping racist. I'm white and most of the white people I know have great banter. What banter do Asians have, how many A*s they got at A level lol?
