    kk, i started a thread in H+R that got me thinking. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=982662


    I live in an area which can be pretty damn racist (near Newcastle). So, yeah, i have horror stories of what i saw in just a week in Newcastle. Not to say that this represents the people of Newcastle btw, because they are very friendly.

    A guy was walking out of a club and these women stop him and start mocking his 'ethiopian arms' and throw their kebabs at him.

    An ethnic Middle eastern guy tries to dance with a woman on the dancefloor, she screams 'we only talk to English people'.

    Group of girls in a pizza shop saying words like '*****'.




    So i'm moving to London for uni, what is it like to live there as a student?

    Unless you count the Mackems/smoggies as a race...

    Central London is cool, greater london...not so much :erm:
    It has its fair share of dodgy areas, not to mention areas which only has specific ethnic groups so walking around a town where you're the only white kid surrounded by crowds of asians...well you get quite a lot of looks lets just say lol.
    If you go live around the London unis it should be fine, it's usually quite civilised and its more diverse :yep:
