Black Racist Students Refuse to be Taught by “Old White Academics”



Lecturers who are ’60 year old white men’ are unable to teach black and minority ethnic (BME) people, students have complained.

The students, who are studying at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), said under-representation of black people among the teaching staff, relative to the student body, made students feel ‘isolated’, unable to engage with their studies and lecturers.

The comments were taken from interviews with students by the SOAS Student Union, which is part of the University of London, and submitted in a report which was researching into why less black and minority ethnic (BME) students achieve 2:1 or first class degrees than their white peers.

The report, called Degrees of Racism, said BME students’ confidence and engagement during their studies is affected by ‘racial exclusion and discrimination in the learning and teaching environment at SOAS’.
