    Does it really matter? The whole point of ncs is to promote diversity and have a chance to become friends with people from different backgrounds

    why do you want to mix with just your race? Isn’t the whole point of today’s society racial/gender harmony

    are you white ?

    then you dont know what its like to be the only asian in the room. Its natural to worry about fitting in and having no one to talk to.

    yeah I’m white, but if I’m the only white person in the room it doesn’t bother me, things you shouldn’t be self conscious about:
    -Race
    -Gender
    -Age
    You can’t control any of these things, if you think because your asian no one will talk to and please stop playing, “white people have it perfect card SMH

    This.

    And just note that its great an all that NCS promote diversity, but just take notice that many NCS applicants go with friends. Its also human nature to befriend those who have led similar lives to you; people from a certain religion, skin colour and culture will find more common interest then people from different backgrounds. However this doesn't mean they should stick to each others ethnic group as that is wrong

    I worked on NCS last year, it will very much depend on what area you are doing it in... North Birmingham last year was chock-a-block with every race and religion you can imagine.

    people of minority races arent self conscious smh seriously. its natural to worry slightly about the possibility of there being no one else of ur race/religion/ age etc. and wdum about having no one to talk to- whatever race religion age sexuality whatever u may be, ncs is all about meeting new ppl and making new friends regardless of ur background

    It would depend massively upon your area and who your LDP (Local delivery partner) would be. I'd guess you'd be able to find national figures on the Internet somewhere, but isn't a true representation of your local picture. If you know anyone who's participated before, asking them may be the best indicator you can get.

    I’m just saying how his/her mindset is stupid because it doesn’t matter but seriously don’t worry if your the only Muslim there
