Is A Student Union Chicken-Shop Tour Racist?

Recommended Posts

I know the area very well .. this story isn't a one off .. London and the South is a different country to up here.. there's genefrication of certain areas especially East London that's becoming a long running battle for residents. this kind of classist bs,seeing how the other half live story is part and parcel of it.

 

Rubbish.

 

It is an introduction of the freshers to the take-aways that they will be using after the clubs for the next three years.

The chicken shops welcome it and provide free samples. They want the trade and the Goldsmiths wants to encourage the patronage of local businesses.

 

and ... the event was organised by bme students.

I personally think the gravitational "pull" of all the country's wealth to the South is ludicrous if not criminal .. I wish corbyn well in his right-wing Labour party , but I expect little ..shame we've no party similar to pc or snp in the North.. weve been bled dry for too long up here..

Bit strange for a Daily Mail article to complain about classism.

Wealthy middle class students, sheltered from the realities of life thanks to mummy and daddy's trust fund, decide they would slum it in very poor areas and see how those dreadful anti-EU poor people feed themselves.

 

Disgusting.

You've never met a student nor know what being middle class means I guess. :hihi:

Non story.

 

If every time some idiot on Twitter spouted some guff, a National Newspaper (sic) ran the story then we'd be inundated with these non stories.

 

The Fail is trying to create outrage and reaction to a couple of idiots Twittering, they're only some students, it's not like it's The President of the Free World© spouting dangerous garbage..........oh, hang on:huh:

DM & The Sun enjoy a collective readership of 30 million per month compared to the Guardian's 10m per month according to [Statista]

Goldsmiths University has been accused of racism after taking its students on Chicken Shop tours, is this racist?

 

Why is someone visiting a fried chicken shop racist at any level? Or classist for that matter?

 

If they want to make it a race thing, then all they are doing is trying to reduce integration surely - you can't come to 'our' places because you are the wrong colour - equally the same applies if they are trying to make a class thing about it. Drivel.
