    Just find people you get on with. Join societies, talk to people in halls or your flat. It isn't rocket science. By the sounds of it you're the one making race an issue.

    Ask them if they fancy a cup of tea with a nice McVitie's biscuit, then once you've captured them start asking what they think the royal baby will be called. White people love stuff like that.

    On a serious note, find things in common

    Join sports societies and other groups to meet people there. Offer to help out on your course to make instant friends. Instead of breaking in to a group try making friends with individuals instead

    Wtf OP. Why does race matter so much? Be friends with whoever seems nice. Doesn't matter if they're white, black, brown, blue like those avatars...They're all just people

    Hate to break the news to you but everyone judges each other.

    From experience I've found professional muslims try very hard to integrate themselves in the environment they are placed in. Despite their religion or cultural restrictions they are juggling between two identities and under more pressure than ever to please both sides. I've made good friends with a few and outside drinking or eating pork (lol) we actually have a lot in common.

    Remember: crackers love cheese!

    Seriously though, we do love dairy. That seems to be largely due to the fact we're one of the only groups that can eat it without being violently ill...

    Anyway, pretty much just as others said: just talk to them, join societies and so on. Remember none of them (well, most of them) won't know each other only, and provided they're not racist douchebags they shouldn't have an issue chatting with you and becoming friends with you. Just...engage with them as you would anyone else

    Buuuuut maybe just keep in mind they'll probably say some shockingly ignorant **** every now and then :x

    What is wrong with you, you're acting like white people don't talk to other races. Just talk to them normally
