Looks like a typical grauniad article to me : Big claims with absolutely no evidence to support them.
I go to Durham. It's fair to say there are lots and lots of Asian students.
i dont think there is that much racism. there are alot less nigros and chinese/indian/blacks than whites in the UK hence the term 'ethnic minority' combine this with indian culture supprting women remaining in the home; chinese and asians taking over their parents cornershops/restaurants and the blacks making more kids as is common in the culture, it is correct that due to culture and minority status that there would be less ambition among minorities to go uni, in addition to the fear of being a minority. due to the overall lower numbers of minors applying to uni generally, it is alot less likely they will apply to oxford let alone get in
i am south american indian btw, not a ku klux klan member
It's another example of the Guardian/Left in general finding a 'victim' so the ritual of feeling their pain may be carried out. I know this particular article is nearly antique, but wasn't it just the other day that the NHS was labelled as ''institutionally racist?'' Happens quite frequently these days. The Met, Greater Manchester Police Force but to name a few have also been humiliated with this disgusting smear. Maybe Indians, Pakistanis, Irish and black Africans happen to generally be weaker candidates.
padraic-your an idiot. stop trying to generalise 4 groups of people.
