I grew up the only white person in a primary school (and pretty much secondary school) surrounded by Muslims.

Get over yourself lmfao.

I'm not saying I have anything against white ppl I've never been in an environment where I'm the only Muslim person there that's why

They used to have parties alot the next day theyd talk about it in school etc. It was awkward but i didnt feel sad or anything about it. If i wanted to go I wouldve have but party isnt really my thing.
To be honest it wasnt completely bad its just new people i found that they had really different personalities weird but i cant reallt explain it

Personally i think its harder in secondary college as people are more aware of stereotypes and crap thats on the news.

Well. it's a nice excuse to stop a conversation:
'Sorry guys, it was very nice talking to you, but I have some bombs to plant, they can't wait'

I'm Polish, so I would say 'Sorry, I have some cars to steal, so I must go'

this guy gets it, its called breaking the ice lol. it shows people you are a lax individual and can take a joke. british humour usually involves mocking others (in a joking manner) so not being sensitive would help you a lot

Yeah same. That's the whole reason I didn't apply to certain unis, as they were full of white people. I too have nothing against them. The only problem I had to think of was the culture- the way they celebrate/hang out is completely different to my morale such as drinking/partying- I don't do that. That's why it can be difficult to make friends, as you should always ever make the right friends. I also need some sort of advice on this

Can't you just get to a party, and then do double prayings the next day? I've heard drom many Muslims that Allah is forgiving and doesn'tmind if you pay your respects as bit later.
