Be careful driving around there as it’s a bit of a blackspot apparently.

Students want the word 'black' banned from textbooks and lectures​

Manchester University undergraduates say using the colour as an adjective is stemmed in 'colonial history' and is now outdated


Students at Manchester University have demanded that the word “black” when used as a negative expression such as the word “blackmail” should be banned because it is “divisive.”

The complaint was prompted by a university study surround issues affecting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff and faculty.


Citing concerns of black people, the report noted that there were “linguistic concerns about Black being associated with negative expressions” such as “blackmail” and “black sheep.”


After the report labeled the use of words which included “black” and “divisive and not inclusive,” the university’s student union demanded that “any other use of the word ‘black’ as an adjective to express negative connotations” should be banned in research papers, lecture slides, and books published by professors.


Students claimed that such words were based on a “colonial history” and should be abolished in light of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Aren't students supposed to be "clever"?

Or was he? one of those "greatest black Britons" polls listed his mum, Phillipa of Hainault, on the grounds that a distant ancestor was from the Spanish royal house and therefore might have had Moorish blood.

Mind you, by that criterion, Winston Churchill's claimed native American ancestry would make him our first BAME prime minister

I'm still amused that the evil Tories have had 2 female Prime Ministers. Labour, the party of diversity and inclusivity have only had white male PMs.

Depends on the subject. Medicine, sciences and engineering students probably are and more importantly are probably too busy to get involved in that sort of nonsense. Media studies etc. might be clever, might be mongs and aren't kept occupied so have time to get involved in student politics.
